Sheila Zilinsky, one of the many crackpots who believe in the Q Anon idiocy, recently expressed her doubts about the subject because the mass arrests of pedophiles hasn’t happened yet. But now she’s really, really sorry and is blaming it all on the death of her father, which left her so distraught she wasn’t thinking straight.
Last October, Zilinsky predicted that there would be a Republican “red wave” and that would trigger the mass arrests they all insist are going to happen any minute now. Neither of those things happened, of course, and a glimmer of light somehow managed to seep through her delusions.
But now she’s really sorry.
Zilinsky said that while she was once “really onboard with the Q thing,” she was no longer convinced that it was legitimate since the long-promised wave of mass arrests never seems to actually occur.
“Let’s cut the crap,” she said. “Until there’s some people in jail, I’m not a Q fan anymore. I’m just kind of giving up the whole thing, unless I see something happen real quick. I just really don’t want to go down that rabbit trail anymore.”
Zilinsky declared that she had been having a difficult time dealing with the death of her father just before Christmas and was also tired of receiving criticism about predictions that Q had made that had not come true, which prompted her attack on the QAnon movement earlier in the year.
“I would like to issue a formal apology to my listeners,” she said. “I was really harsh on the Q movement because I was seeing a lot of discord and fighting and it was really upsetting me and I don’t think I was ready to go back on air; I should have took a little more time off … Bottom line, I made a mistake, so I want to really take this opportunity to apologize for my actions.”
Oh, you made a mistake, but not the one you think you made. We’ve seen her fellow wingnut Liz Crokin express some doubts as well and wonder why those arrests haven’t happened yet. The obvious answer, that this is all a huge steaming pile of B.S., apparently eludes them all. At some point, of course, Trump will be gone from office and no such arrests will have taken place. Will these people then recognize that they were wrong? Very few of them will. The overwhelming majority will find some way to rationalize that failure away.
