A new conspiracy theory is spreading like wild fire in the United States. According to those who believe it, a certain ‘Q’ or ‘QAnon’ holds compromising information about the country, and possibly the planet. But Donald Trump will apparently be the country’s savior. Let’s explain.
It all started in October 2017, just after Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. In the controversial 4chan forum, an anonymous poster who goes by the name of ‘Q’ or ‘QAnon’ has created a theory that the Obamas, the Clintons, the Rotschilds, many Hollywood stars and other influential people are part of a criminal organization that secretly controls the country. ‘Q’ is thought to be a high-up member of the government who is trying to inform citizens about what is going on behind the scenes.
Luckily, ‘Q’ knows who America’s savior will be, and he is called… Donald Trump. And the American President’s plan seems to be in motion already. For example, ‘QAnon’ and its followers believe that the billionaire supposedly only pretended to get close to the Russians during his presidential campaign. The investigation that has been targeting Trump since then is actually thought to be a way to discreetly get close to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller so that together, they can bring down this criminal organization that is threatening the country.
Hidden messages from Trump
‘QAnon’ supporters see, in the way Donald Trump gives his speeches and releases statements, proof that this theory is true. For example, the president reportedly made a reference to his plan to save American when he told journalists last October to watch out for ‘the calm before the storm’. During a comment he gave at a rally at the beginning of August, he said he had visited Washington ’17 times’ before being elected and also referenced the ’17 democrats’ who are investigating his ties with Russia. However, Q also happens to be the… 17th letter of the alphabet.
The number of ‘Q’ supporters are also continuing to grow.
‘QAnon’ remains a ‘fringe’ belief held by ‘a very small number of people,’ said Joseph Uscinski, a professor from the University of Miami, to the Guardian. But the authorities are now starting to worry.
‘I think it’s a really dangerous phenomenon, especially when you see it tied to the president and his rallies,’ said former FBI agent Clint Watts.
