I was looking at the "likes" on the Youtube page of Buckey Wolfe, the QAnon follower who is accused of killing his brother. Wolfe also told a 911 dispatcher "God told me he was a lizard."

I want to share the trajectory of his Youtube likes in this thread.
Buckey Wolfe's earliest "likes" aren't about politics or conspiracy theories at all. They're mostly fitness, motivation, and music videos.

But then suddenly he started liking videos from Hunter Avallone. This is an "alt lite" Youtuber who makes a lot of "anti-SJW" videos.
After that, Buckey Wolfe had a phase where he watched "free energy" videos. And then he got into Alex Jones, Milo, and videos about antifa.

So he's getting into fringe political stuff. But we're still not yet in QAnon or explicit white nationalism territory.
But then, according to Wolfe's Youtube likes, he seems to discover Rebel Media, Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, and English far right activist Tommy Robinson.

Around this time, he also starts liking videos about "gang stalking" paranoia.
After this Wolfe starts getting into the real hard stuff. He starts liking videos from "Red Ice TV," a channel that creates explicit white nationalist content.

Here's a description of some of Red Ice TV's offerings from a @thedailybeast article by @willsommer.
And then, it finally comes. Buckey Wolfe begins liking QAnon Youtube videos.

One of the videos he likes is the highly popular "Q: The Plan To Save The World," which has over 1.2 million views so far. After this, he appears to become a fan of QAnon decoder Praying Medic.
Then Wolfe starts liking videos from David Wilcock.

Then starts liking stuff that's crazy even for QAnon: "shapeshifting" and "reptilian" videos. (Remember how Wolfe told 911"God told me he was a lizard" after he killed his brother?)
I'd caution against drawing concrete conclusions about someone's changing beliefs using just YouTube likes.

However, the trajectory of Buckey Wolfe's likes is suggestive of someone who was gradually pulled down the rabbit hole into deranged conspiratorial thinking over time.
