QAnon and the Great Pumpkin!

Now it all makes sense! In “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Linus from Peanuts worships the Great Pumpkin. More recently, members of QAnon worship a mythical orange leader named Donald J Trump. Both names have the same number of letters! That can’t be a coincidence!

In case you don’t know what The Storm is, here’s the first paragraph of an interesting article in The Economist about QAnon:

This is an awkward moment for the QAnon conspiracists who put their considerable faith in Donald Trump. Inauguration Day came and went with no mass execution of Satanist Democratic paedophiles. The Storm, as a million-odd QAnon followers called that wished-for event, was a shower. So there was no Great Awakening—a post-slaughter celebration of Mr Trump—either. “No plan, no Q, nothing,” grumbled one follower, referring to the conspiracy’s shadowy prophet, an imagined Trump aide, on the Telegram messaging platform to which the group has flocked.

    I thought Linus was smarter than that. Shame on him!

    Linus is interesting in that he was the smartest kid in Peanuts (with the possible exception of Peppermint Patty, who came along later), but he was also the most gullible. Most famously about the Great Pumpkin.
