Banner Day in Loonyland

Today was a big day for lunatics.  First up, we have a $500/head QAnon conference in Dallas, taking place in a venue that looks like a nightmare version of a dude ranch.  I've been checking out a couple of live Twitter feeds covering the event, and it's boilerplate right-wing nonsense, albeit with an all-star cast of nutbars, including Sidney Powell, Michael Flynn, and Louie Gohmert.  There is a live stream on YouTube if you're morbidly curious, but I don't want to send traffic to the MAGA creeps running the channel via a link.  It's easy enough to find.

On perhaps a more momentous note, there is a new poster on internet sewer 8Kun who some Qcumbers are hailing as the return of 'Q', even though the post is signed 'B' and lacks an authenticating tripcode:

It's a short post, merely a hint of cryptic bullshit, but it's a hit for the Q junkies who have been in withdrawal since the mystery shitposter went offline back in December.  It will be interesting to see if the qommunity rallies around this individual, of if this will lead to additional balkanization of the movement.  It's been grifter-against-grifter lately, and in this conflict, I'm rooting for casualties.

Yeah, it's kinda sad to be following this, but today has been a cold-and-rainy late May day, the sort of day which is NOT tailor-made for going to the beach.  At least some people were having a banner day.

If I were a New Testament scholar, I'd be tempted to speculate that maybe the early days after Jesus left the scene might have been rather similar. Heck, I'll go ahead and speculate it anyway.
