Low income advocates of American fascism were priced out of the Q conference in Dallas over the Memorial Day weekend. Branded “For God & Country: Patriot Roundup,” tickets for the conference cost between $500 and $1,000. Q kitsch such as baseball bats and blankets sold at auction for $1,000 and up.
The Q con was held at the Omni Hotel, which is owned by the city of Dallas.
The un-democratic ticket prices did not escape critics of the Q anti-democracy conference. Outside the venue, a Q cultist who apparently couldn’t afford the ticket price complained to a Dallas Observer reporter.
“I don’t know,” he said. “You have to pay for passes. That’s not for the people. We’re for the people. That’s just one of the big things that they’re failing to see and God’s really making that apparent.”
The lowlight of the weekend was a statement by retired general and convicted felon Michael Flynn, who said he agreed that there should be a military coup against the United States government.
