Hundreds of QAnon conspiracy theory supporters gathered in the city of Dallas at the site where John F. Kennedy, the nation’s 35th president, was assassinated, awaiting the appearance of his son, who died more than 20 years ago, which they believe should herald the return to power of former President Donald Trump. This was reported by the Washington Post on November 3.
The son of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy Jr. died in a plane crash in 1999 at the age of 38, but the gathering is convinced that he is not dead and has been in hiding for 22 years. They believe that Kennedy’s returning son will become vice president when Trump returns to power. Many came to the event carrying flags or wearing T-shirts that read “Trump-Kennedy 2024.”
However, as the newspaper wrote, the “prophecy” did not come true. After waiting for Kennedy Jr. to show up for a while, the crowd did begin to disperse. Some claimed he might still make an appearance later in the evening at the Rolling Stone concert.
The publication notes that the Kennedy Jr. theory is marginal even to QAnon supporters. However, the numbers gathered surprised Jared Holt of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Lab, which studies “domestic extremism.”
“It surprised me that so many people came here. Being in that state of mind, when one is completely and hopelessly disconnected from reality, opens up very dangerous possibilities for what one might do in the future,” he said.
Followers of the theory QAnon convinced that the United States or even the whole world is ruled by some secret and powerful clique of satanic pedophiles, including the leaders of the Democratic Party of the United States, businessmen, Hollywood actors, royalty and other celebrities, and opposes it former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Earlier, on September 4, it was reported that QAnon supporter Jake Angeli, also known as Q-Shaman, could face up to 20 years in prison for his participation in the storming of the Capitol building on January 6. Angeli was captured during the January riots. The stormtrooper was remembered for his flamboyant Viking garb, and footage of him quickly circulated on the Web.
Before that, on March 3, some conspiracy theorists allegedly tried to break into the building of the US Congress. They speculated that the inauguration of former U.S. President Donald Trump “with his subsequent return to power” could be held on March 4.
On January 8, it was reported that Twitter began blocking the accounts of supporters of the current President of the United States Donald Trump for distributing content related to the conspiracy theory QAnon.
