    This article pulls out a bunch of the posts. Really ugly stuff. Lots of calls for murder. Putting public officials, media Tech execs in front of firing squads or hanging them. Killing all blacks and Jews ...

    Who the hell are these people?

    These are the violent threats that made Amazon drop Parler

    Somewhat ironic. A Trump tweet from 2017 calling for cutting off terrorists from the Internet. He was referring to Islamic extremists but the same principle applies to the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on January 6th including the way that they were indoctrinated. The description of them as "losers" also hits the nail on the head.

    Trump logic:

    "It's cool when I do it, but when the other guy does it, it's a witch hunt. A hoax."

    How his groupies fail on this defies intelligence. I other words, unbridled dumbassery.

    A quick WHOIS points to them being affiliated with EPIK, which I had never heard of.

    Epik (company) - Wikipedia

    Makes sense....

    I finally got my MAGA step dad to admit that this isn't a free speech issue "but it should be" according to him. I learned about all his Qanon beliefs today and it's shocking and very disheartening. I'm witnessing the radicalization of family members in real time.

    I agree completely. I don't see any way out of it when you believe anything that challenges your position is part of the conspiracy. I guess that's by design.

    I like the part where he claims Trump is an actual chess master.

    The whole thing about all the violence about to rain down, but then the Jesus Christ closing statement is a nice touch.
