Perhaps it's a double bluff psy op? But there are so few of us (Q followers) who even know enough to watch for things, they probably could literally do this under 'everybody's nose' and just about everybody doesn't see it. Just met a Trump supporter who had never even heard of 2000 mules. We can't underestimate the number of people who literally know nothing about any of this stuff.

Yes, yes, I keep forgetting that. I just assume people know basic civics and history. I remember a few years ago in a group of folks, we were talking about the fall of the Berlin wall, and I mentioned NATO.... and two of the people there said, "What is NATO?" It was a jaw-dropping moment for me.... how can someone live in the late 20th Century and NOT know what NATO was?

Same thing today. I can point out things like "2000 MULES" or the Durham investigation, and even among purportedly conservative people get blank stares. Amazing.

Just recently I had a discussion with a couple of guys who'd never heard of ivermectin. Had no idea what I was talking about. It's surreal.

If you let your jaw drop in front of them, they are insulted and turn off.

Well my jaw did not LITERALLY drop, but the ignorance was enough to throw my mind into a moment of pause while I processed that. And as I get older, insulting people is less of a deterrent than it used to be.

Yup. Less and less time to care about “insults”. But more able to apologize (and eat crow when I’m wrong) and be kind.

Part of why we are in this mess is because we didn’t want to push back on politics, culture wars etc. (This May not have been your personal experience, but it was mine). We went old school and decided to not talk money, religion, politics...so we just keep quiet to offend or insult.

Quiet no more. They have done a great job dumbing down 2.5 generations of kids in school, so they do not know about history...and they can’t read the signs when we are on the wrong path.

It is easy to forget how far we have come across these 7 years.

Some even over de longer period of time.

Today too, I got the confirmation that many people are simply unaware what history is, what is going on, and how these inter-relate.

Talking to an anon by normies to them is a huge consciousness raiser, however, for us too, as we need to keep reminding ourselves, we are NOT normies.😎

We all become grumpy old men, dont we?

I worked for a polling firm in the early nineties and interviewed a lady in her 80s where she said she never heard of AT&T. She was sharp as a tack on rest of her answers, and just kept thinking even to this day how she never heard of them.

Correct. Most are well informed about pop culture, but nothing else.

You just hit the nail on the head, cryofreeze. It's like they feast on garbage and have no idea about real nutrition.

You are correct. When I first met my brilliant husband 45 years ago he told me that 85% of the North American population has a hillbilly mentality. I now think it’s closer to 90%. He was right and his advice has served me well.

Damn, girl. It's us hillbillies who been stocking up our 2A goodies and preparing to live through hell while all the rest of the country was dozing during the Bush years. The Necks That Are Reddened stand prepared. I grow my own food and I've got a still. What are you eating when the Cabal comes round offering your starving family horse jerky in exchange for your family's babies?

Please refer to Hank Jr.'s "Country Boy Can Survive" for more information.

Heck, I give hillbillies more credit than most of the shallow, star struck population types.
