Derogatory references to the crazy QAnon conspiracy theories are constant in the leftist —and non-leftist— media, yet no one dares to talk about the equally crazy Blue Anon theories.
While anything that contradicts the Democrat narrative is liable to be accused of being an insane “QAnon conspiracy”, we can agree that this movement is associated with the “extreme right” —apparently all right-wingers are extreme, always— and speaks of an alleged secret plot organized by the “Deep State” against Donald Trump and his supporters.
Although due to the insistence of the media everybody knows what it is, or at least has heard of QAnon, nobody seems to know or refer to Blue Anon, which would come to be the set of outrageous conspiracy theories of the left –-here it is not possible to talk about extreme left unless you defend Stalin, and sometimes not even then—.
Although some theories that the left has linked with QAnon have ended up being confirmed as true, the Blue Anon delusions —that take its color from the Democrats and the Twitter check marks of their legion of like-minded journalists and celebrities– enjoy an excellent reputation despite having been widely refuted.
Some of these Blue Anon theories are that Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation, that masks and lockdowns worked, that vaccines turned out perfectly and are the first drug with no side effects in history, that gender is a social construct and men can get pregnant, that Jussie Smollett was attacked by angry MAGAs, that Twitter did not interfere in the 2020 presidential election, that PTAs are the most dangerous domestic terrorist group while BLM riots are peaceful, or that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer.
According to Blue Anon logic, even though Elon Musk is revealing what was going on on Twitter, you still have to claim that there was no interference in the election and that there was interference from Russia in the 2016 election, even though this has been debunked several times; that the Balenciaga campaign, the Epstein case and the Maxwell conviction mean absolutely nothing even though everything points to the fact that there may be organized pedophile rings, and to suspect otherwise is crazy; that the excess mortality of the last few months can only be a consequence of climate change, and to insinuate that it could be related to some other thing deserves ostracism, and so on and so forth.
But the biggest confirmation that the Blue Anon movement exists is that just by mentioning it, you are automatically lumped in with the most unhinged QAnons even if you disagree with 99% of Q theories. Crazy, isn’t it?
