The Club-Q Shooting Is 100% Theatre
Fake Until Proven Real #autohoax
Last night there was an event at Club Q in Colorado Springs, CO. It has been reported as a mass shooting in which 18 were injured and 5 were killed. The pathologically lying media reports that Anderson Lee Alrich, 22, was taken into custody after being restrained by club attendees.
I’m confident in positing that this shooting is a psychological operation and nobody died.
I think this shooting is meant to make the right look dangerous. The recent protests against drag queens will be cited as the lead-up to this. I suspect even Alex Stein will be blamed personally as he just went viral protesting a drag show yesterday in which he apparently stiff-arms an individual preventing Stein and any others from accessing the event. Considering the timing of this Club Q’s planned drag show today, this won’t be a difficult narrative to construct. It practically writes itself.
Consider the following:
High-profile right-wing agitators have been protesting “grooming” and “drag queen story hours” for months now.
This includes the Patriot Front and Proud Boys, known to attend these events armed.
The event where Alex Stein apparently stiff-armed the drag queen show attendee featured armed Antifa standing guard. This victim-posturing inflates the sense that drag queens feel threatened. This escalation plays right into the fake shooting.
Club Q? Come on, Q? This is negative branding. Similar to the Parler Shooter having a Parlor account where he was radicalized. Q will be blamed in part for this, as the essential Qanon story involves child trafficking and grooming, which has been conflated with drag queen storytime.
"Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence."
I’ll follow this story as it develops, but the narrative is obvious already. It’s theatre, storytelling, and narrative crafting. It will obviously be compared to the Pulse Shooting in Orlando, in which the shooter was supposedly motivated by his Islamic upbringing. President Obama described him as a "homegrown extremist" who espoused support for Islamic radical groups.
This time, we have another “homegrown extremist”, motivated by right-wing ideology, grooming allegations, and of course Q.
