Qanon Goes Mainstream on Fox News as Conspiracy Theory Spreads

The backlash against Twitter’s banning of “Q” accounts has brought the subject to the surface of the national news cauldron – which is a major backfire for the social media company.

The closer we get to the 2020 election, the more we are going to hear about Qanon.

“Q” is an alleged Trump administration insider who is posting on obscure internet forums, almost always in the form of a question or questions, and allowing web users to concoct their own answers.  The frequent posts thus far have been characterized as a story regarding the “Deep State” and Donald Trump’s war against it.

Followers of the Qanon phenomenon have plenty of widely varied beliefs regarding the specifics of this conflict, but this is the basic gist.

The conspiracy theory has been largely throttled online, however, with Twitter, Reddit, and other social media sites banning or censoring Q-centric content.

That hasn’t stopped Qanon from making it into the mainstream, however.

Fox News host Jesse Watters said a set of false, far-right conspiracy theories has “uncovered a lot of great stuff” while he railed against Twitter’s crackdown on thousands of accounts tied to the theory.

Watters was hosting Eric Trump on “Watters’ World” Saturday night when he gushed about the baseless theories that have been tied to violent incidents that contributed to warnings the theories pose a terror threat by the FBI.

When Twitter took action against 150,000 Qanon accounts last week, President Trump responded.

Trump likened the move to an attack on the upcoming presidential election, telling Watters the bans were violations of Americans’ “First Amendment right to freedom of speech.”

“You have some little dweeb in Silicon Valley, who’s 22 years old, he’s a tech savant. He’s running Twitter or one of these companies. And he literally has his finger on the power of a presidential election,” Trump said.

There have been no real answers when it comes to the questions posited by the presence of “Q” or his followers, and with only 100 days left until the election, there is little chance that we will have some profound revelation on the subject before casting our ballots.
