A new federal intelligence report warns of possible dangerous QAnon attacks across the country taking place.
The report warns that followers of QAnon may be planning to target Democrats violently and other political figures as the movement’s prophecies continue to prove false. Many believers of the theory maintain that former President Donald Trump is the true winner of the 2021 election and still hold onto hope that he will be reinstated into the White House. They also believe that Trump was fighting to expose Satan-worshipping cannibals running a child sex trafficking ring in the so-called “deep state.” Thus, QAnon believers are waiting on a day of reckoning called “The Storm,” where Trump’s enemies will be tried and executed.
Released on Monday by Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich and compiled by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, the reports predict that while some QAnon adherents will “likely will begin to believe they can no longer ‘trust the plan’ referenced in QAnon posts and that they have an obligation to change from serving as ‘digital soldiers’ towards engaging in real-world violence.”
Social media platforms continue to monitor and remove QAnon-supported accounts. However, that has not stopped followers, who are now moving to lesser-known platforms.
The QAnon movement proved during the January 6th Capitol riot that they are not afraid to resort to violence to defend Trump’s name. Approximately 20 QAnon followers have been charged with federal crimes related to the insurrection.
