The question about the QAnon cult that lingers in many people’s minds is, “Where will they turn as the multiple failures of Q predictions begin to mount and their authoritarian belief in Donald Trump falls apart?” We’re starting to get an answer: The vigilante militia movement and white nationalism.

Militia groups in Georgia, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, are forming alliances with an array of other Trump-supporting far-right organizations, including the QAnon groups aligned with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. It reflects a much broader trend in the post-Trump world of the radical right in which what used to be distinct movements with widely differing sets of beliefs are commingling and coalescing into a singular far-right insurgency against liberal democracy.

The goal of the Georgia groups, according to Justin Thayer of the Georgia III% Martyrs, is to advocate for the state’s secession from the United States. He says the final straw was the arrests of people who were involved in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

“The way patriots are now being hunted down and arrested by fellow men and women who have taken the same oath has disheartened any faith I had in the redemption or reformation of the USA as one entity,” Thayer told the Journal-Constitution.

1. You scumbag. You broke the law and your group killed people in the 1/6/21 insurrection attempt.

You are NOT patriots. You are thugs. Personally I think you should be kicked out of the Country, since you don't seem to respect your fellow citizens or your lawfully elected representatives when they were meeting to finalize the electoral vote counts put forth by all fifty states. Did you even vote?

“The way patriots are now being hunted down and arrested by fellow men and women who have taken the same oath has disheartened any faith I had in the redemption or reformation of the USA as one entity,” Thayer told the Journal-Constitution.

3. Trump Pence did dog whistle to get the anti-feminist vote. I almost

bar*ed every time i heard Pence say "Trump and his broad shouldered leadership" during the 2016 election. I think they were gunning for some men of colour (latinos in florida) vote along with white male dinosaurs in the 2020 election. I can't remember what they said exactly. They are building a new coalition.

Overturn voter suppression tactics.

Treat every election like it’s our last.
