QAnon: Everything you need to know about the conspiracy theory that went global


Team Udayavani, Aug 16, 2020, 10:27 AM IST

QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory and loosely organized network centered around the belief that there is a supposed secret plot by an alleged “deep state” against President Donald Trump and his supporters

QAnon is a virtual cult that celebrates President Trump and casts Democratic politicians and other elites as evil child abusers. Followers believe that elites have gone so far as to manufacture the coronavirus to bring Trump down

QAnon

According to The Week, On 28 October 2017, someone calling themselves Q began posting a series of cryptic messages in the 4chan internet forum titled “Calm Before the Storm”

Q claimed to be a high-level government insider with Q clearance (a United States Department of Energy security clearance with access to classified information) who had been instructed to post intelligence leaks straight to 4chan

The theory states that Donald Trump is waging a secret war against a Satan-worshipping cabal of American elites consisting Democratic party figures, Hollywood stars and journalists engaged in child sex trafficking

The supporters also claim that   Covid-19 is a hoax and vaccines are being controlled by Jewish people. The group grew out of Pizzagate, the conspiracy theory chinned up in large part by Alex Jones, that falsely claimed Hillary Clinton was running a child sex trafficking ring out of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor

They show up at Trump rallies in Q merchandise, shirts and hats. They have come up with some dangerous conspiracy theories which the police officials believe will cause riots.

However, It is said that Q is someone within Trump’s administration, a Michael Flynn-type character or even Trump himself. Another theory is that Q is a shadowy military intelligence figure who recruited Trump for the presidency
