A stroll in the fetid swamp that is the Twitter hashtag #BidenWillNeverBePresident

MAGA art

Sometimes I can’t bring myself to dive headlong into the swamp that is the misogynistic internet. So today I decided to take a look instead at a different sort of swamp — the Twitter hashtag #BidenWillNeverBePresident, where an assortment of Trumo dead-enders have decided to congregate and enjoy their collective delusions together.

You might think that, what with the Electoral College confirming Biden’s victory and all that, the MAGAs would have at least started to accept the reality of their situation, namely the fact that their God Emperor is a huge loser. Not a chance. It’s like they’re trying a sort of do-it-yourself version of The Big Lie — repeating their favorite lies about the elections endlessly and hoping this will transform them into the truth.

More than a few suggested that Biden’s alleged “treason” should be punished by a stay in Gitmo — or worse. Many thought that Biden’s supporters should also face jail, fantasizing about QAnon’s long-promised mass arrests.

Some called for Trump to declare martial law:

A few directed their wrath at, of all people, Mitch McConnell — for belatedly recognizing Biden as president-elect.

Others directed their ire at far-right “news” outlet Newsmax for its crime of accepting the results of the election.

Some worked their pet issues into their #BidenWillNeverBePresident rants.

Other Twitterers seemed to suggest that elections should be decided on the basis of who has the most Twitter followers — though if that were the case then Barack Obama, with more than 127 million followers, would easily push Trump out of the top spot.

And of course there were those who blamed the whole mess on — could it be? — SATAN.

It doesn’t matter if you “surrender” or not, MAGAs. Joe Biden was elected president fair and square and will be sworn in on January 20.

Your link is borked. Here’s one that works.

Speaking of QAnon, I stumbled across this article by a game designer a day or so ago who looked at the whole Q thing as a variation of (amongst other things) an Alternate Reality Game. He comes up with some ideas on how that whole thing managed to sink its claws into otherwise reasonable people and how it might not be possible to break the cult’s hold on them.

Amongst other conclusions, he declares that QAnon cannot be the result of a ‘Chan thread gone viral like others think; all clues instead point to one or more DMs running things instead. Which is actually a lot more disturbing in a way than everyone believing a ‘Chan post at random and creating an alternate reality from that.

I read that article previously and although I am by no means an expert I concur with the conclusion that it is not random. I have also seen speculation that Q is in fact Jim Watkins, the owner of 8kun, who has a vested interest in increasing traffic to his website, but it’s unclear if he (or whoever Q is) ever expected it to get this large. What remains to be seen is what will happen to QAnon under a Biden presidency. Given that a number of QAnon supporting representatives were elected to the House in November, it seems that QAnon will likely be a part of the Republican Party for the foreseeable future.

@ Naglfar,

Hopefully it all fades away, as previous fads have done. Unfortunately I suspect this one is going to last a while before it fades. 🙁

On a more lighthearted note, I bring you some fun Q’s to look at instead of the horrible cult one:

That’s cute, they still think “we the people” ever had a voice in the first place.

Between gerrymandering, a Constitution hobbled by a nonsensical institution meant solely to get the slavery-dependent states to join the Union, representatives who are under no obligation to actually act on behalf of the people they allegedly represent, and the absurd idea that the state could be trusted to police itself, it’s a small marvel the US has managed to preserve even the illusion of “democracy” (such as it is) for so long.

I assume all this “President-Elect” Twitter usernames I’ve been seeing are some sort of dig at Biden? Just what is the purpose?

Yes, that is what they are. I think they’re trying to say Biden isn’t the legitimate president-elect by declaring themselves president-elect as a way of mocking the title.
