And if he wasn't President or a R they wouldn't touch him.  

Well, given that he was a registered Democrat as a regular citizen of NY certainly supports your hypothesis. Both sides have plenty of corruption.

That's an odd argument. He's a republican now, I don't see how his previous political affiliation would be relevant in this situation.

Are cultists crazy, stupid or both?

I believe they are both.

A third of Republicans believe QAnon theory of deep state paedophile cannibals is 'mostly true', poll finds

 

The number of GOP voters who believe the theory either 'partly' or 'mostly' true has grown to 56 per cent in past year

I'm saying they didn't go after him when he was a Democrat, and now that he's not, he's targeted. Suggests corruption in their office.

Why wouldn't he be in NYC - how would he get anything done if he wasn't.  You're going to see a major move out of businesses in the city now with the Internet and Zoom.  Why would any business put up with NYC DA's, crime, taxes and a declining city.

You just made the point for him.  Ironic how this only because a huge deal once he became a R.

Manhattan, where most HQs are, has very little street crime.

What are you guys talking about?

Trump was sued several times by governmental entities before he was President, including the Justice Dept and City of NY. 

Trump has a long, long trail of shady business practices and lawsuits; most of which he had the luxury of settling out of court due to his wealth.

If there is an underground sexual assault/pedophile ring in hollywood that has slowly come to light in the last few years, is it really that big of a stretch to think it could be happening elsewhere?

Hmmm. I was under the impression they hadn't pursued cases previously for some reason. Why didn't they stick?

It's a stretch to believe that a man with a history of predatory accusations who was friends with the guy blackmailing them all is actually organizing to bring them all down.

This is the trouble when a conspiracy gets packaged all under a headline of a specific name. QAnon in this case. There are likely, from my view, parts of this that are true and part that aren't. So to call it all crazy is going too far, but yeah, I haven't seen anything to indicate Trump is on some sort of crusade to eliminate this underground ring.

Sure enough, what happened? Only article I see is behind a paywall.

I don't even recall.  Seems like it's been kind of a multi-year issue of a few companies they audit getting into trouble.

Q is a little bit of truth splashed with quite a bit of into that requires some pretty serious mental gymnastics.

That said, what if I told you guys a few years back that there is a rich pedophile who  owns his own Island were he brings underage boys and girls for him and  his rich friends, politicians, and Hollywood types to party with and sexually abuse. I am sure the response of most, including myself would have been.

Well yeah, wealth is power.  

'Fortunate son' Trump is one in a billion though.    The rest of us are required to earn our privilege and financial security.  But this is where race privilege enters the picture because the playing field and opportunity platform to achieve wealth is quite slanted.

Wealth begets wealth, to attribute it to race is insulting to many white people who come from nothing.

I know I know.....rigged system....not rigged enough to prevent a person of color from getting free schooling solely due to their skin color, or by getting free schooling or even making millions of dollars playing a sport.......or singing.... acting..........or even starting up the right business.....but still rigged.

Most of us begin to learn the lessons on what it takes to create opportunity for ourselves from our moms and dads.

Looks like I hit a nerve with the good ole boy contingent.  Yeee Ha!       

Jokes aside, here's a good everyday example of white privilege.  It has nothing to do with the government, or even how hard one works.  It just highlights how ingrained prejudice is and how it skews access to wealth nowadays....... 

 

2 resumes, with the same credentials, are sent out to numerous employers.   One has the name Eric O'Neill, the other Darnell Jefferson.    Eric O'Neill's resume will garner more callbacks.

This is the epitome of white privilege.
