what's the significance of a cloud with lightning bolts car decal?
October 3, 2021 6:34 PM   Subscribe

Was driving today behind an SUV with a Trump sticker, a Q-Anon rabbit decal, one of those distorted skulls that represent right-wing LEO/military shit, and a large decal of clouds with lightning bolts coming down out of them. (Couldn't get a picture safely.) It was cartoony and icon-ish, like if it weren't with all those other decals I would have assumed it was an SUV belonging to a meteorologist. But given the context, I have to assume that it's some kind of right-wing nonsense. Anyone know details or more info around this?

The storm that Q kept predicting?

The SS made lightning bolts popular for white supremacists.

An oblique reference to Stormfront perhaps.

I think betweenthebars has the right idea. Q’s long-predicted “storm”.

This is totally "the storm."

No doubt a Punisher logo (originally from a Marvel character).

Response by poster: Rash: THANK YOU! Yes, that's exactly the skull thing I was talking about and it's a BONUS that you cleared that up because I've always wondered about that one too ...
