In their farewell address, an outgoing councillor in the Southern California group QAnon asked for God’s blessing for their city, the country — and for good measure, online conspiracy.
“God bless America, God bless Q and God bless San Juan Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano, Councilwoman Pam Patterson said on Monday, as first reported by the OC Weekly.
During her speech, she quoted a posting from the right-wing conspiracy group. The “Q” supposedly anonymous posts musings – or “bread crumbs” to decipher for the trailer, on online forums.
“And to quote ‘Q,’ number 2436: for too long we have been silent, and our bands of strength, that we are formed once to defend the freedom and worsen the freedom. We were split up. We have been weak. We, the rule-elected a traitor to us. We allowed the evil to prey on us,” she said. “We need to rise again. We must re-unite. We have to fight again for God and country.”
“God bless America. Where we go, we all go, ‘Q,'” she said.
The group began after an anonymous person posted on the online messaging site 4chan, in October 2017, to demand, to a high-level government security clearance — “Q-clearance,” to be exact — and discussed President Trump, Ex-us President Barack Obama, Ex-President Bill Clinton, a political donor, George Soros, and others.
WHAT QANON, THE CONSPIRACY THEORY IS A GROUP SHOWS UP TO TRUMP RALLIES?
It is unclear who is “Q”, and if he or she is only one person or a group.
The members of the marginalised group believe in massive conspiracies in the media and a so-called “deep state” take-down ” card. People with signs or wearing clothing referencing QAnon have shown up in the Trump rallies and other political events in the last few months.
Patterson, lost her re-election race in November, reportedly met with Trump in the White house in may. It was part of a delegation of state legislators who reported against California state laws refuge, The Capistrano dispatch.
According to the OC Weekly, Patterson points to QAnon in public.
