The QAnon conspiracy theory played an important role in the rise of Donald Trump. And the group follows an internet leader who simply goes by the name Q.
After Donald Trump was voted out of office, Q stopped posting on the 8kun message board. But after the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade, the conspiracy leader returned.
The first message read, “Shall we play a game once more?” Other messages read, “Are you ready to serve your country again” and “remember your oath.”
Conspiracy expert Marc-André Argentino believes that Q hopes to develop a response the looming mass protests against the decision. He tweeted, “The timing of this is beneficial to the QAnon movement as it overlaps with Roe v. Wade being overturned. The timing of this plays in favour of Q and QAnon influencers who can point to the months of failed prophecies and say see this is what we were waiting for.”
The Q account on 8kun has posted for the first time in 564 days. So the questions I've gotten so far: is Q back? Is it the same Q? What does this mean? 1/ pic.twitter.com/iV9Wh7kg0o
