As President, Trump traveled across the country this week, a number of spectators have been spotted huge cut-outs of the letters and hold Q-and-wear T-shirts with the hashtag, #WeAreQ.

So, who are you?

Under the radar, until now, they are members of the fringe, right-wing group QAnon, which believes in massive conspiracies in the media and the so-called “deep state” take Trump.

The group “just to the right audience at the right time in the right circumstances,” Joseph Uscinski, a University of Miami professor, co-author of the book “American conspiracy theories,” said The Associated Press. He said that the subjects believe will appeal to many who are inclined to conspiracy theories.

Continue to read on for a look at what is QAnon, and why is it in the news lately.

What makes the group believe?

There are several conspiracy theories that this group is palpable, especially the faith, it is a network of people, including the US government wants to take down Trump and his government, according to The New York Times.

Another theory, according to NPR, is not that Special Counsel Robert Muller is the investigation into allegations of Russian interference and collusion in the election of 2016. Rather, the former FBI Director sees prominent Democrats — including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Trump’s 2016 opponents — and their relationship with Russia, or potential connections to a massive (unjustified) pedophile ring.

Another think the military is Trump asked to run for President, with the nefarious group of people in the government, according to NPR.

The group also has its own Jargon. Apart from the call of the leaders, simple, “Q”, you are referring to those who try to expose the group and their theories as “clowns” and those that follow, such as “the Baker.”

How has it started?

According to The Associated Press, 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 Trump, Obama, Clinton, political donors George Soros and others. The message was entitled “the calm Before The storm”, which many believe to be a reference to a meeting Trump had with military leaders earlier this month, when he used the same sentence.

To decipher the poster, “Q” leaves the so-called “breadcrumbs” or instructions for the trailer, to the conspiracy theories out.

It is unclear who is “Q”, and if he or she is only one person or a group.

Why is it in the headlines now?

People with signs or wearing clothing references have started on QAnon, shows at the Trump rallies and other political events in the last few months.

A group marched to protest at the Department of Justice, in April 2018. And a 30-year-old man was arrested for alleged terrorist acts, among other things, after he reported from a blocked a highway near the Hoover dam, with its armored truck, calling for the release of the Ministry of justice report regarding Clinton’s E-Mail server, WTVR. The man involved in the June incident, it is assumed that the in connection with the QAnon.

Roseanne Barr, the embattled actress, whose namesake show has been cancelled this year after she tweeted racist feelings about a former Obama administration official, has also apparently retweeted to have messages from his Twitter account and asked to make contact with the leader.

In June, she is also translates on Twitter, the phrase “wwg1wga,” the NPR “where we go, we all go,” a common phrase among the Fans.

To know anything else about the group?

It looks for validation, especially in the number 17, which coincides with the where Q in the alphabet.

For example, the University of Alabama national champion football team, the trump card has a Jersey with the number 17, the it earlier this year, when it visited the White house. As The New York Times reported, some of which compliance with the Q-group think, it is a symbol that it exists; others believe online, it shows trump, himself, is “F.”
