The QAnon Phenomenon: Satanic Panic, Cannibal Fantasies, and Pizzagate

04:30 pm


Who or what is "Q," and why are a growing number of Americans convinced by the story they are telling? Why are they charging "the Democratic elite" with "Satanic" conspiracy, ritual abuse, and cannibalism, and more importantly, why is anybody listening? Is QAnon a political movement? A Religion? Have we ever seen anything like this before, and if so, how might that history help us understand the phenomenon of QAnon?
