Generally speaking, it's not a good idea to place too much credence in an anonymous 4Chan shitpost. 'Insider' Anons, individuals claiming to have inside information from positions of power in various institutions, have long been a feature of imageboard culture. In the wake of the recent Game Stop short squeeze, which is motivated as much by rage against hedge funds as it is by pump-and-dump operators, here's an even more ambitious scam masquerading as a short squeeze on silver which is supposed to tank the entire banking sytem:
Gotta dig that over-the-top supervillain dialogue, down to the cliche "You fools." It's the sort of monologuing that wouldn't fool even the most gullible of... oh, dear:
This is a totally real post from a real person who is really concerned about this and isn't trying to goad people into buying silver. pic.twitter.com/rilByUvJi2— Poker and Politics (@PokerPolitics) January 31, 2021
You might have thought after 1/20/21 that QAnon would be unable to destroy people's lives. You would be wrong as QAnon is finding new and exciting ways to bring people to ruin. pic.twitter.com/Gyo7KzIis5— Poker and Politics (@PokerPolitics) January 31, 2021
The real problem with shitpost culture is that one can never be sure if a post is in earnest or not. This is the culture that gave us 'ironic racism', which is, you know, racism. Nothing these people write can be taken at face value. Conservatives are especially susceptible to precious-metal trading scams, remember this asshole?
I suspect that, in the case of this accelerationist wet dream of tanking the entire banking system, the scam artists are playing on the rubes' belief in NESARA, a pipe dream perfectly explained in this letter to the editor. A financial reset is integral to the QAnon 'Great Awakening', so it is to be expected that a bunch of affinity scams of a financial nature will spring up in the wake of the failure of the anonymous Q's prediction that Trump would win the 2020 presidential election in a landslide.
