I’m at today’s march for believers in the #QAnon conspiracy theory. Will post if I see anything interesting.
QAnon is kind of a mega-conspiracy theories that includes Pizzagate and a whole lot of other conspiracy theories. Roseanne is really into it! Here’s an explainer on it:…
So far the QAnon March has drawn something like 100 people as well as, curiously, someone carrying multiple pool noodles. Stay tuned!
Chanting “we want justice” and “we love Nunes,” the QAnon March is off to the Department of Justice!
The QAnon March has taken 14th Street! They’re changing “where we we go one, we go all” — a clue given to them by the cryptic Q
One fellow is trying to convince bystanders to join the QAnon March: “We’ve got FISA-gate, we’ve got 9/11 truth!”
Here’s a video of the QAnon March for a sense of scale. Pretty big turnout for a rally in 40 degree weather, for an extremely fake conspiracy theory
Approaching the Trump hotel, the QAnon crew starts chanting “we are the storm!”
The QAnon March even has “Kermit sipping tea” memes, but about Benghazi
QAnon protesters are now marching up Pennsylvania Ave, demanding to know “who is Q?!” Reminder that this whole thing is based on anonymous internet posts on 4chan.
The QAnon rally is, incredibly, scheduled to go till 2 pm. So there’s plenty more to come! InfoWars’ Jerome Corsi is scheduled to appear
One fellow is carrying Corsi’s book as a sort of banner itself
The QANon crew has arrived for their rally at Freedom Plaza. Intriguingly, it’s an open mic.
Organizer @tracybeanz asks the crowd how many of them are Russian bots or paid by George Soros. Big cheers!
Speech time! One guy yells, “Q sent us!”
This woman drove up from Georgia for the QAnon March.
This sign on the podium is a good reminder how much of QAnon is just dressed up Pizzagate
If you like the QAnon coverage, check out my weekly newsletter on right-wing media,
A former moderator of the QAnon subreddit takes the stage. Big cheers when the crowd recognizes her username, “Red Pill the World.”
Big cheers for one speaker’s claim that the events of QAnon were foretold in the Book of Daniel.
Recurring theme throughout the QAnon speeches is how many legitimate grievances people have with US healthcare system. One guy: “my teeth are rotting out of my mouth!” Another promises cancer and autism will be healed this year, and also HRC will be sent to Gitmo.
Now the QAnon event is about chemtrails
The QAnon event has been hijacked by a guy explaining his sovereign citizen theories. Crowd — now standing in 40 degree weather for the past two hours — doesn’t love it.
After 15 min of stultifying sovereign citizen talk at the QAnon March, another guy takes the stage and starts talking about admiralty law. Oh no!
A QANon figure asks how many people in the crowd watch his 24-hour QAnon livestream. Dozens of hands go up.
The QAnon livestream guy says he gets 4 hours of sleep a night because he’s so busy doing QAnon stuff. “I’ve never felt so energized and dedicated as I do being a part of this.”
A speaker named “Dead Cat” takes the stage. Apparently a big internet character for this crowd, which cheers him multiple times. “The deep state — we’re going to kill them bastards!”
And that’s it for the QAnon rally! I’ll leave you with these custom Q hats.
Since a lot of people are asking: the QAnon people aren’t joking or pulling some elaborate troll. They take it very seriously! Lots of talk about Bible quotes, people getting very emotional about the “clues”
