About Qanon in brief

Summary QanonQAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. No part of the conspiracy claim is based on facts. The conspiracy theory has been widely characterized as “baseless” and “evidence-free” and has been called “a deranged conspiracy cult” by some. It is disseminated mainly by supporters of Donald Trump, who refer to the Great Awakening and apocalypticism as “God’s messiah” and see Trump as a “messiah” The number of QAnons adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. It has been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as RussianState-backed traditional media. The group’s precepts and vocabulary are closely related to the religious concepts of millenarianism, leading it to be sometimes construed as an emerging religious movement, also seen as a flawed Christian movement. The theory is essentially that there is a worldwide cabal of Satanic pedophiles who rule the world, essentially the ruling class. And they would have continued the ruling world if it were not for the election of President Trump, not the election for President Obama, and they would cover up their existence, essentially covering up the existence of their existence. They control the media and they control the politicians, they control everything, essentially.

They are essentially ruling the world and they are essentially, essentially, the ruling classes of the U.S., Europe, and Africa. They have no regard for the rule of law or the Constitution, and the only thing they care about is their own personal gain. It’s a conspiracy theory that has no basis in fact, but it has been taken up by a number of prominent people, including President Trump and the president of the United States. It was first posted on the anonymous imageboard 4chan in October 2017 by an American individual; it is now more likely that a group of people acting under the same name has become a group under the name “Q” The group claims to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United US. Q anon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a digital soldiers oath, and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath. In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of Qanon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory’s spread. A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnON activity, and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy Theory from its platform altogether.
