Could it be that the Qanon theory is going mainstream?
For those not in the know, “Q” is an anonymous internet poster who disseminates messages in the form of questions, all pertaining to the “Deep State” in Washington DC. Over the course of the last few years, conspiracy theorists have made connections between these cryptic posts and real-life events, coming to the conclusion that Q is a Trump administration insider who is leaving breadcrumbs for us to follow to learn about a secret war between the politicians.
The theory was deemed “dangerous” by the FBI, however, and social media sites such as Reddit have taken to censoring discussion of Q.
That didn’t stop one of NYPD’s most important men from making a statement on CNN over the weekend.
The head of the New York Police Department’s second-largest police union gave a television interview Friday afternoon while sitting in front of a mug emblazoned with QAnon imagery and slogans.
The mug was positioned behind Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, during a roughly seven-minute interview on the Fox News show “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”
The mug behind Mullins featured the word “QANON” and the hashtag #WWG1WGA, which stands for “where we go one, we go all,” a popular slogan among QAnon supporters. At the center of the mug was a large letter Q, which refers to a supposed government insider who, according to QAnon supporters, posts cryptic clues on the Internet about the “deep state.”
The Qanon theorists will almost certainly be dissecting this Easter egg in the coming days.
