QAnon and Trump

Trump supporters relied on QAnon to feed their warped realities, with the conspiracies that eventually led to the riot at the Capitol on 6 January 2021.

Watch the video at The HuffPost, go to their article.

QAnon advanced the far-right, batshit-fucking-crazy conspiracy theory that a cabal of Democratic politicians, liberal Hollywood actors, and high-ranking government officials, who worship Satan, are running a child-sex-trafficking ring and simultaneously plotting against Trump, who is planning a day of reckoning in which thousands of members of the cult will be arrested. (Vanity Fair).

Of course the existence of a satanic child-sex-trafficking cult isn’t the only conspiracy theory the president has amplified. “Just this week you retweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that Joe Biden orchestrated to have SEAL Team Six, the Navy SEAL Team Six, killed to cover up the fake death of bin Laden. Now, why would you send a lie like that to your followers?” Trump again claimed to “know nothing about” such a rumor but suggested that maybe it was true and that it would be up to his followers to decide (Vanity Fair).

“That was a retweet,” said Trump. “And I do a lot of retweets. And frankly, because the media is so fake and so corrupt, if I didn’t have social media, I wouldn’t be able to get the word out.” (Vanity Fair)
