The madness of QAnon crowds

It began November 2, when “hundreds of QAnon supporters gathered in Dallas at the site of John F. Kennedy’s assassination because they believed that John F. Kennedy Jr. would appear and announce the reinstatement of Donald Trump as president.” (See story here.)

John F. Kennedy Jr. was killed in a plane crash in 1999. His body was recovered, cremated, and his ashes scattered in the Atlantic Ocean (details here). There’s no freakin’ way he’s going to show up at Dealey Plaza to make any kind of announcement.

That doesn’t stop the QAnon believers. As of Tuesday, November 30, 2021, they’re still there — led by an alleged wife-beater who talks about “death” and has raised over $200,000 for his fringe (even by QAnon standards) offshoot Q-group. (See story here.)

To them, he’s a “general.” For him, it’s a scam. This is his new job. He’s from Federal Way, Washington, and previously ran a demolition company. He’s a Holocaust-denier, anti-Semite, and there are lots of signs he’s a neo-Nazi. (See details here.)

There’s nothing new about mass hysteria. In 1841, a Scottish journalist named Charles Mackay wrote a book titled Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (details here), which is still in print (get it here). QAnon probably would have had its own chapter, had it been around then. (For background on QAnon, go here.)

The people waiting in Dealey Plaza (photo below) for the dead son of an assassinated Democratic president to appear and reinstate Trump in the White House are gullible fools. They are, quite simply, mad.

    Even if Robert Kennedy shows up (yes a miracle) and announces Trump is President would not make Trump? President. Should Kennedy show up would it not make more sense that the nation falls to its knees and make Kennedy Il Duce in a new religious kingdom with Trump in charge of the legislature of approved members?
