    1. It’s good that people like this openly admit they were wrong so the real moronic sheep get a lesson.

    2. @[Hashknight Gaming] the only ones who have lost touch with reality are the ones that let the TV, internet, and federal government tell them how to think, feel, and live.

    3. @Belly Dancer Em accountability is a fair and transparent election not killing all opposition because the TV said they’re terrible people. You are brainwashed.

    4. @Em M the Supreme Court is 6-3 conservative lol and 3 branch’s of federal government controlled by one party would be actual tyranny. Please get a real education

    1. This is very similar to the early days of Ex-Followers of Scientology speaking out. They were also dragged thru the mud, mainly by the very people who, up until the moment they spoke out, were like family. How quickly you people turn on your own, which is a classic sign you are in a cult. Now when you say Scientology, most people know you are referring to an extremely toxic cult that engages, among other things, in the utter destroying of anyone who does not tow a very fine line. That’s the near future of Q-Anon and all your attempts to bring down the people who are speaking out agains you, will only help to hasten that downfall. Your tactics are so formulaic that people instantly recognize them as cult behaviour.

    2. Better make sure she is not fake qanon like CNN fake news FAKE BUBBA NOOSE, FAKE SMOLLETT ATTACK, FAKE C9VINGTON HATE MOB.

    3. @Brian Jones
      FOR SURE.
      And let me guess that you also believe 26 women lied about Trump sexually assaulting them right

  1. The poor target employee that gets paid 7 dollars an hour to clean up after and deal with crazy people like that

    1. @Calvin Parish WHAT WAS TIM MCVEIGH PROBLEM?????? OR DYLAN ROOF OR STEPHEN PADDOCK OR ANY OF THOSE EVIL MASS SHOOTERS???? WHAT BLACK MAN KEEP THEM FROM GOING TO SCHOOL OR GETTING A JOB WHAT BLACK POLICE KILL THEIR FATHER OR BROTHER OHH YEAH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES in a system set up for them to succeed not one obstacle in their WAY why didn’t they work harder or PULL THEMSELVES UP BY THE BOOTSTRAPS??? OR JUST LEAVE AND GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM???????

    2. @Calvin Parish AND I DON’T BELIEVE YOUR CRIME STATS COMING FROM LYING EVIL MISERABLE INDIVIDUALS PLEASE DON’T TRY TO GO THERE WITH ME YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN YOUR GOVERNMENT WHY SHOULD I??????

    3. Better be sure she’s Qanon. Because CNN has the penchant for FAKE NEWS like the FAKE BUBBA NOOSE, FAKE SMOLLETT ATTACK, FAKE COVINGTON HATE MOB.

    4. @Hu Me Tulsa Oklahoma race massacre rosewood Florida race massacre DYLAN ROOF Tim McVeigh AIN’T FAKE NEWS

    5. @Calvin Parish Joined one month ago and over 500 comments. I think I know what your “”job” is. Do you get paid by the word or by post?

    1. It’s good that people like this openly admit they were wrong so the real moronic sheep get a lesson.

    2. @malloy 56 Generally agree, but I think you are understating the nefarious way that certain people are targeted for being groomed into QAnon.

    3. I think it’s important for us to see how they get out, because that’s not what people are doing, from what I can see. It’s literally a cult, and cult member don’t leave if the people outside of their cult are calling them stupid and crazy. Considering that the remaining Q believers are likely the most radicalised it’s never been more important for them to know they will be welcomed if they choose to leave. (Those who haven’t yet broken the law, that is.) That’s what these stories highlight.

    4. @Trevor H. This is an excellent point. I also know how angry people are at what’s been happening. It’s a tricky situation but kindness and grace are usually the correct route.

  2. At the end when she’s giving advice, it made me wonder if the people in the Black Lives Matter movement would get the same love and compassion from her and her people.

    1. Absolutely not. She may use the term “them” when talking about trying to “understand” Qbelievers, but don’t get it twisted. She is still talking about taking care of her own kind. Anyone who is close enough to the edge to fall down a Qanon rabbit hole generally isn’t someone who would have liberal views.

    1. It’s good that people like this openly admit they were wrong so the real moronic sheep get a lesson.

    2. “Q” is meant to ask questions since ppl no longer ask em.
      A small group of the 1% controls majority of our wealth and want us to live just below middle-class. Millions of children go missing every year due to child sex trafficking. Politicians favor the corporations and not we the ppl. How is that a cult?

    3. @BRUH Yes it is a cult. There’s a LOT of evil in this world. But Q points the finger and blame in the wrong direction. You’re just a bunch of uneducated morons who couldn’t detective your way out of a wet paper bag. You make it sound easy and it’s not. You’re just a bunch of childish blame shifters.

  3. “Here’s an easy way to figure out if you’re in a cult: If you’re wondering whether you’re in a cult, the answer is yes.”

    1. @Calvin Parish why you always on here crying Calvin? Every single day you run to CNN like some weird obsessed freak.

    1. @Tavia Lativia You’re committed to the con and I LOVE IT!!! You don’t even see the duplicity in your comments it’s amazing reading them.

    2. Know your leaders and you will know what party you belong too. Let’s start with the Democrats.

      Democrat leadership
      DNC
      Jaime Harrison, president Biden, vice president Harris, , Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer

      Republican leadership
      RNC
      Senator Mitt Romney, Elizabeth Cheney

      Q Anon leadership
      Q/RNC
      Donald J Trump, Moscow Mitch McConnell, yellow streak Lindsey Graham, Big Mouth Ted Cruz, Kevin McCarthy, and one of the biggest crying babies that ever ran for the House of Representative
      Rep. Jim Jordan and your wannabe leaderships Rush Limbaugh , Sean Hannity , Lou Dobbs , Michael Flynn , Rodger Stone , Marjorie Greene , and the most embarrassing and sloppy is hygiene Steve Bannon are your Q Anon leaders and many more.

      (Know your leaders and you will know what party you belong to in the three-party system).

  4. Wish Marjorie’s husband was as concerned as this woman’s was. We wouldn’t have a kook in Congress if so.

    1. @Jordana Beaulieu I believe she was just trespassed (banned) by the store. If I remember the video correctly, the store just wanted her out and they had the police trespass her and she took an Uber home.

      I want to say she almost got arrested for berating the cop while she was waiting for her Uber.

      It truly is encouraging to see her able to come back to reality, and it gives me hope for our country. I have been getting so disheartened by the absolute and complete delusion of QAnon cultists, and was losing my optimism that we could bring people like this back from insanity

    1. I think Q ANON started as a prank by trolls who could come up with a lie so crazy that even trump supporters wouldn’t believe it. It’s sad that there is no such thing, it’s like could god make a rock so big and heavy that he couldn’t lift it.

    2. They call it a theory either to make themselves sound smarter than they actually are or to deliberately insult the process through which actual theories acquire the status of theory.

  5. “I was in this terrible ecochamber.” Is that where people force you to get low flush toilets, low flow shower heads, and fluorescent bulbs?

  6. Her deeply caring, “best friend” husband was _laughing_ at her, as she flailed and spouted nonsense at the police in her garage. He seemed more amused, than worried.

    1. @Estée G. Likely he was a great gas lighter. He reminded me of the guy in Colorado who killled his wife and two daughters and pretended the whole time he was worried about them missing.

    2. @Lisa Chambers was that the guy from the Netflix documentary? That scared the crap out of me. He was able to seem so normal to a point, and his mistress got away with it. I don’t know about this situation though, as this woman is parading herself around to sell books and get attention. The mother who was murdered just wanted her husband’s attention 🙁
