A QAnon promoter stormed the Capitol. Now, he's upset people are saying he's 'antifa'

 

A well-known QAnon promoter has learned first-hand what it feels like to be accused of being someone you are not.

 

Because of his flashy costume, the so-called Q Shaman has become a photogenic fixture of QAnon rallies — and he found himself an even bigger platform on Jan. 6 when images of him breaking into the U.S. Capitol were seen all over the world. Shirtless, face painted and sporting a furry hat, he is unmistakable.

 

Except, it appears, to the conspiracy theory ecosystem he is part of.

 

The Q Shaman is an Arizona man named Jake Angeli, who has been vocally and publicly in favor of President Donald Trump and a slew of far-right conspiracy theories for years. 

 

Despite his well-documented history as a Trump supporter, on Wednesday night the right-wing media ecosystem turned on him. Lin Wood, the lawyer behind several failed suits to overrun the presidential election, tweeted a photo of Angeli and others who broke into the Capitol with the caption, "Indisputable photographic evidence that antifa violently broke into Congress today." The tweet is no longer available as Wood's Twitter account was banned.

 

The talking point was also picked up by Pastor Mark Burns, another big name on the pro-Trump social media circuit. "This is NOT a Trump supporter...This is a staged #Antifa attack," he tweeted with a photo of Angeli posing on the Senate dais.

 

Angeli himself responded to the Wood tweet, trying to clarify that he is, in fact, pro-Trump.

QAnon falsehoods move to text message chains

 

As social networks and app stores crack down on disinformation purveyors and calls for violence, QAnon-based lies and conspiracy theories have found a new way to go viral: forwarded text messages.

 

It's not clear just how many people have sent or received the texts, as person-to-person messaging services are difficult for researchers to track. NBC News received numerous tips about and screenshots of the messages from people who say they were forwarded from friends or family. The messages have already made their way to some prominent conservatives, who have amplified them on social media.

 

Twitter has permanently banned President Donald Trump and taken particular aim at users who promote QAnon. Twitter said Monday that it has suspended 70,000 accounts since the riots.

One viral false conspiracy theory shared across the U.S. implores users to disable automatic software updates on their cellphones, claiming that the next patch will disable an emergency broadcasting system message from President Donald Trump. The false rumors are usually attached to another urban legend about a blackout coming in the next two weeks, which say people should be "prepared with food and water."

 

Another viral text is a link to a deceptively edited video, also known as a "cheapfake," that first appeared on the Twitter-like social media platform Parler. It features a series of mashed-up speeches by Trump that are realigned to lead the viewer to falsely believe he is calling for an uprising on Jan. 20.

“What we did on Jan. 6 in many ways was an evolution in consciousness, because as we marched down the street along these ley lines, shouting ‘USA’ or shouting things like ‘freedom’... we were actually affecting the quantum realm.”

I’ve Been Tracking the Far Right for Years. Then Lin Wood ‘Exposed’ Me as the QAnon Shaman

 

 

So how did I come to be the face—or, rather, the name behind somebody else’s face—of a right-wing campaign to deny crimes committed by other right-wingers? What unfolds is a decade-long tale of an ever-morphing conspiracy theory about me, originally forged in the crucible of neo-Nazi anti-Semitism and developed by a variety of small-time far-right figures before a Trumpist grifter injected it onto a national stage. And it’s also a story about how purely anti-Semitic conspiracies get toned down and then circulated more broadly, while retaining the same storyline and targeting the same individuals.

QAnon Believers Think Trump Sent Them a Message in Morse Code During His Oval Office Address

 

The QAnon conspiracy theory web hinges upon the collective delusion that a network of satanic cannibal pedophiles secretly controls the United States government, and that outgoing President Donald Trump was sent to expose them.

 

Though these claims are patently absurd, this fringe fantasy has been vindicated with the elections of Republican Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Lauren Boebert of Colorado, both of whom have expressed support for the conspiracy theory in the past.

 

Despite the imminence of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20th, a faction of these QAnon believers remain certain that Donald Trump will remain in office until at least 2024.

 

While he still didn't acknowledge that Biden is the legitimate winner of the 2020 election and that his lies about United States election integrity were, in fact, lies, Trump urged his followers not to plan any more violent insurrections in his name.

 

But QAnon believers focused on Trump's hand movements at the 4:20 mark, where they believed he gestured the Morse Code for "Q."

These people missed the signal.  The signal is the timestamp of the movement 4:20.  He's directing them all to light up a bowl and get high (which, coincidentally, is the only way any of this Q stuff makes sense).
