Maybe the face paint and horns should have given it away, but the QAnon community is finally jumping the shark, it seems.
The longstanding community of conspiracy theorists are certain that Donald Trump was waging a secret war against “the Deep State”, and that a mysterious government insider was leaving clues about it online. They worked diligently to piece together coincidences and anomalies, and came up with a number of new avenues of thought based on what they discovered in the missives of the mysterious “Q”.
Through their work, they have arrived at a date for Donald Trump’s net inauguration: This Thursday.
Law enforcement agencies around Washington, D.C., are adding extra security out of concern about a coming date — March 4, which is Thursday — that has swirled online among QAnon supporters.
An internal memo sent by the Timothy P. Blodgett, the acting House sergeant-at-Arms, which was obtained by NBC News, said his office “is working closely with the U.S. Capitol Police to monitor information related to March 4th and potential protests and demonstration activity surrounding what some have described as the ‘true Inauguration Day.'”
Blodgett wrote that plans are in place for “additional personnel” to “support the safety and security of Members and staff.”
The memo said Capitol Police have “no indication that groups will travel to Washington D.C. to protest or commit acts of violence.”
The specific stream of the theory that believes in Trump’s March 4th inauguration is predicated on the idea that the United States was transformed into a corporation decades ago, and that Trump would not be the 46th President come Thursday, but actually the 19th, after reverting the nation-state back from its business designation.
