      endlessly fascinating. I've got Q fans popping up in my own world (as I'm sure many of us do) and dig how AHP explores in this interview where some of that may be coming from. Second maybe only to the "wellness, instagram Q" angle, this convo is a very compelling take.

      For a white Evangelical, the idea of Black Lives Matter might make sense. But the need for collective shifts of power structures doesn’t make sense — at least in their world. Of course they would jump at something like QAnon, which, instead of suggesting that the “bad guy” is actually the system, suggests that the bad guy is an actual set of bad guys, individual and malevolent bad guys, doing specific actions that you can then oppose.
