    QAnon is idiocy...no argument there. This is an outlier, and it's a very sad story. But it sounds like it would have happened with or without QAnon to latch onto.
    These people are frequently talking about how reality is not reality and that they are waging a cleansing war against suspected pedophiles. Family members frequently complain that they can no longer speak to Q-family members. That is a mental illness.

    And this isn't about Trump; it's about someone mentally ill who happens to belong to whatever group this is and who murdered his brother. It's about trying to exploit this tragedy to score cheap, petty political points.

    Get it right.
    I'm not losing any sleep point out how crazy Qidiots are and that they can easily fall in line with proud boy ideology.

    No it is not. Here is a list of mental illnesses:

    If you would like to discuss mental illnesses that you think this guy might have been suffering from, then let's. But believing in conspiracy theories is not a mental illness. I can be a product of one, but there are lots of people who simply believe in stupid things. Also there's indoctrination and brainwashing, which are not considered mental illness either.

    By being clumsy with your definitions, you are adding to the existing stigma that folks who actually suffer from mental illness face.

    You're also not being honest here and are only trying to save face.

    These people think Q is speaking to them through their third eye and that Q has told them that people are pedophiles, are turning into lizard people, or just to throw out medications and not to trust doctors. It's all enveloped into the crazy God Q as way for people to justify their mental illness.

    Are you saying I'm lying about Qidiots being crazy? Or that Qidiots often are also proud boys?? Or that Proud Boys believe in some of the same things Qitiods believe? You better be more specific before making blanket accusations about the lies I am supposedly spreading.

    Yes, he just happened to belong to this right wing group

    After all, it is not as if they attract violent types

    You really ought to stop talking about things you clearly don't understand. Any point you're trying to make is getting lost.

    Very sad. But if the Qanon and lizard people conspiracies didn’t exist this guy would have acted on some other fringe belief.
