The following is just a sampling. There are literally endless stories to read.
Worried about my dad..
TW: doxxing, sexual abuse, pedophilia
I live a little far away from my family due to nonpolitical issues we had and needing to separate myself. While my dad and I weren’t always on the same page we often joked about being the only sane people in the house. It’s been three years since I left and although before I moved out he was an “independent” but definitely leaned more to the right. He supported trump but never really said much about politics except for the old “but her emails.” He doesn’t have social media but I have no idea what he’s been looking at online. My dad has become hateful and racist. He’s spewed off a couple conspiracies to me and when I asked his sources he said “I have five” and refuses to tell anyone what they are. There’s no way it’s not Q shit.

my mom fell for qanon
i’m a college student living with my mom because of covid. my siblings (13 and 15) are living here too. none of us believe it except her. the 13 yr old started to believe it at first but we convinced her it was bullshit. it hasn’t really negatively affected us too much, except for inconveniences like her deleting the Netflix because they support pedophilia. it’s super annoying though, she won’t talk about anything else. i can’t casually discuss politics, or anything even a tiny bit related, without her going off on a rant about the deep state and how evil the left is. my mom is a really gentle, fragile, scared person who was into the magical, signs and wonders side of christianity before this. when her and my dad got divorced after 18 years it really messed her up, and i feel like she needed something to stand for. how do i convince her that this stuff isn’t true? i think i could, i just don’t know how to start.
30 years down the drain !
My husband fell for it,our home life became a living nightmare. It was subtle at first,conspiracies about ancient aliens, then came JFK,911,pizza gate,big pharma,you name it ,he fell for it! He lost his very good paying job because of drug abuse, and he decided to take an early retirement . He was angry all the time, because the kids and I didn’t see the truth, we would all receive texts about it, videos from the all mighty YouTube! As soon as I would wake up, he would start talking about the cabal, the hidden truth, I know more about it than I wish to. He has cancer and refuses treatment, because he can cure himself without medication because the meds are a conspiracy from big pharma,they want money. He already spent months in ICU because of his failing health, but still refuse to listen to medical professionals! Guess what? It’s not going well. He doesn’t wear a mask, because it’s against his freedom.
I had him removed from our home by the police for physical abuse. He still thinks that he didn’t do anything wrong, his hands around my neck, being shoved against the wall was entirely my fault because I didn’t see the truth about whatever was on his mind that day ! He is a fervent supporter of Trump, which is so far from my liberal views! I am an immigrant in the US by the way, but I am white, so not like the other immigrants who steal American jobs and are rapist / drug dealers. English is not my first language, but that’s ok per him because I work and not mooch of the government . He lives thousand of miles from us. I don’t know where we went wrong, what led to this,the past 10 years or so have been rough, but this last 3 years have been a true nightmare. I am heartbroken and relieved at the same time, if that makes sense. But damn I miss the man I married so long ago,not the angry lunatic that replaced him. Sorry for the long post.
My mother in the UK has become obsessed with Q and its ruining our relationship
Over the past few months, my mother who is a Christian has become increasingly obsessed with the conspiracy that the global elite are controlling us and are preying, killing and trafficking children for adrenochrome. She believes that trump is an amazing man and is secrectly taking them down and is ready to expose them all. She believes the repercussions will affect even us in england and all countries of the world. She believes that if the cabal is taken down we will get free electricity, no taxes etc.
Basically every aspect I've seen online, she's roped into this grand conspiracy...child trafficking, bill gates microchips, covid being a means of control and how the deep state is trying to stop trump. Using the exact same quotes I've seen spewed online "trumps clearing the swamps, media is a lie etc"
Everytime I ask her where she's getting all this from she uses the same lines i see all over the Internet she just tells me she'll send me links (never does) When I ask why any of this matters to us in England she always replies with "you'll see" .. never giving any factual answers
How can I stop this?!
