The rumor that Trump won the election and is still the president is often referred to as “the Big Lie”. It is spread by #QAnon members, but the rumor is not true.

Q members are not stupid or crazy, they are victims. They are subjected to undue influence. /1
Q members have a hard time doing fact checks on news stories because they were told by Trump news is fake.

In reality, the good journalists report the facts, whereas opinionated reporting spreads #fakenews #misinformation and #disinformation so therein lies the conundrum. /2
Leaders of groups like #QAnon use certain tactics—unknown to Q members—to keep members believing in them so they will stay in the group. /3
One example of how #QAnon leaders maintain their following is creating Illusory Truth Effect:

Create a lie big enough and so outrageous that it “must be true” but keep it simple; if you repeat it often enough, the lie eventually becomes believable. /4

This thread was suggested for research on QAnon.

I added all the links of the articles & videos to my research project.

Baby steps tho, cuz I was blown away with TMI & sometimes I freak out when seeing some of the headlines. 😳

It's all true, thus the shock & awe. /1
Not a lot of people know this, but there are researchers who have been investigating QAnon for a long time. Their research helped them predict the insurrection at the Capitol on 1/6. They are warriors and true heroes! /2
When I observe their findings, it's like being in kindergarten, learning things like the alphabet and new words. It really is a new language, so it's not easy at all to understand. /3

Analyzing how conspiracy theories perpetuate cognitive dissonance, and how minimizing the amplification of conspiracy theories can persuade cult members to leave cults.
Theory 1: Amplification of conspiracy theories by influencers striving to inject cognitive dissonance in cult members to create alternate realities convinces cult members to stay in cults.
Theory 2: Cult members are more likely to leave cults if unhealthy cognitive dissonance is minimized.

There is a rumor going around that the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 was not real, that it did not happen.

That is NOT TRUE.

The Capitol insurrection is REAL.

/1 (cont’d)
To prove the INSURRECTION WAS REAL, the FBI has compiled a database of the events, including timelines, video footage, and pictures of those who were there that day.

The videos and pictures are REAL, & were taken at the insurrection BY PEOPLE THERE! #SeditionHunters

/2 (cont’d)
Hundreds of those people in the pics and videos have been arrested for their part in the insurrection and ARE IN JAIL!

There are COURT RECORDS with defendants’ testimonies where they ADMITTED to being involved with the insurrection.

Dear @waltshaub and @POGOwatchdog :

During your investigation of the insurrection of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, please take a look at this thread re Roger Stone's role in the insurrection: /1
@jimstewartson predicted the insurrection of the Capitol because of his research about the authoritarian #QAnonCult long before the attack. If he was able to that, he might also predict future violence. /2
One of the key players in the insurrection is Roger Stone, but there were several others as you can see from Jim’s pinned thread here: /3
