8/ He has continued to dabble in various other conspiracy theories: esp. medical conspiracies like vaccine harm and fluoride in the water, antifa violence, alternative health, etc. ()

9/ A December 31st posts gives an idea of what he believes in. To note none of these are particularly QAnon. And Prior to June 2020 He does not mention Q at all.

10/ When the pandemic started, Slyman started posting multiple conspiracy theories about the virus: 1) the government is going to force vaccination on its citizens, 2) the Gates ID2020 conspiracy theory and 3) George Soros owns a lab in Wuhan that developed the virus

11/ Number 3 is interesting as it is video that was shared by Joanne Wright, who is a QAnon that was running for a congressional seat in California.

12/ However the video URL taken down does not match the links shared by QAnon so it is possible that he came in contact with it from other sources. However, there is a chance this is the first time he came into contact with QAnon.

13/ Other than conspiracy theories, Slyman had an unhealthy news and media diet. He was a regular consumer of Tucker Carlson, InfoWars, Daily Caller, The Corbette Report and TrendingPoliticsDotCom.

14/ Slyman was also a consumer of Russian state sponsored media and state aligned media: RT, Sputnik and The Duran. Ultimately, one can imagine that his world view, as well as his SocMed biases lead him down a certain path.

15/ On top of an unhealthy media diet, Slyman was under financial pressure due to his being temporary laid off in light of the pandemic. Out of 54 video's he mentions the desire to go back to work to be able to support his family in 20 of them.

16/ The civil rights protests were also something that recently captured his attention. Already primed on ANTIFA conspiracy theories dating to 2017, he latched onto the Soros funded riots conspiracy theories. There is a chance this may have been a QAnon gateway.

17/ Based on my analysis it is likely he got introduced to QAnon on June 6th and very likely he was red-pilled into QAnon in the early hours of June 8 when he binge watched "Fall of the Cabal" until 4am.

18/ Like Jessica Prim (), fall of the Cabal is not only what pilled Slyman but also radicalized him as he watched it a second time through on June 9. 13/54 live streams are of him watching FOTC.

20/ He also latches on to the Frazzeldrip conspiracy theory: which is about a Hilary Clinton snuff film (see here for more information ) As a father of young kids the pedophilia narrative probably resonated with him, as it is the thing he latches onto.

21/June 10th is when Slyman begins to spiral as, again echoing Prim, he believes that he is being watched, followed and targeted by the Deep State for the knowledge he has and is trying to share.

22/ Slyman, also believes that there need to be an apocalyptic event so that Q and Trump can defeat the Deep State and bring in a golden age of peace and prosperity. He believes that he has a role to play in this.

23/Though a long-time conspiracy theorist. Slyman is obviously new to QAnon as he makes pronunciations mistakes, mixes up the lore and is unfamiliar with the basic content. His interaction with the movement is only through FOTC to my knowledge.

25/Though some in QAnon are trying to call him a fake believer, this is incorrect. It is not about how is or who is not a true believer of Q. Rather it is about the behavioral impact QAnon conspiracy theories and propaganda have on individuals and their behaviors.

27/ This is a theme that is becoming common: the rapidity with which QAnon radicalizes individuals in a matter of weeks or even days. Also prominent is the role played by Fall Of The Cabal. This documentary is a dangerous piece of propaganda

28/ On June 11 his first livestream Slyman is seen in tears and in distress. He believes that the Deep State is going to kill Q and Donald Trump. He references this post on June 10th about the victims of the Deep State killed for their knowledge.

29/ His visceral emotional reactions to his beliefs demonstrate the concreteness of his beliefs, never mind if influencers don’t think his beliefs are "real" or "canon" to the Q myths, of he’s a fake believer. More evidence mounts that QAnon is a dangerous ideology.

31/ He believes that his local radio station is sending him coded messages from Q in the songs they are playing. EG he spends 5 minutes decoding Pink Floyds Brick int he Wall, which is explaining how the deep state is trying to hide all the pedophilia from the world.

37/ In the next video he is in the car and asking the radio to tell him what to do. Matthew Wilder - Break My Stride comes on and Slyman interprets this as he needs to drive and stop for no one, not even for the police. Which explains the way of his arrest.

47/ His daughter tries to convince him to stop but Slyman accuses his daughter of being of the devil and working for the Deep State. His beliefs in the QAnon make him blind to his screaming kids, and lead him to speed away from Cops at 110mph.
