There are increasing little snippets of evidence emerging that Q-Anon has been a prank on alt-right baby boomers.
It's hard to sum up at this point exactly what Q is about, it's grown and mutated into this huge weird thing, the crux of which revolves around
Donald Trump being a lone superhero single handedly fighting off a cabal of evil satanic pedophiles. But, this is not the thread for even attempting
to recap the immensity of the Q conspiracy theory.
Q is slowly gaining more and more media attention. But here's the thing, over on 4chan, Q followers are starting to suspect it's all been a prank
"Q is pols greatest achievement, look at how many normies and boomers got sucked into our LULZ chaos. Good job anons, looking forward to our next
And here's the evidence.
Last month, an Italian leftist activist collective called the Wu Ming Foundation pointed to a book they published in the ’90s that is shockingly
similar to QAnon. In 1999, Roberto Bui, Giovanni Cattabriga, Federico Guglielmi, and Luca Di Meo, writing under the name "Luther Blissett,"
published an Italian novel called Q.
Luther Blissett was a name regularly adopted in the ’90s by leftists, anarchists, and general troublemakers in Italy. It was used for staging all
kinds of pranks. The Luther Blissetts in different cities would occasionally communicate by phone, but for the most part the project just spread
organically through the underground.
Three of the authors behind Luther Blissett, Bui, Cattabriga, and Guglielmi, now operate under the name "Wu Ming" or "No Name." And they've been
posting lately pointing out how the plot of their novel Q is pretty similar in structure to the basics of the QAnon conspiracy theory. For example:
"Coincidences are hard to ignore," Bui, Cattabriga, and Guglielmi said. "Dispatches signed 'Q' allegedly coming from some dark meanders of top
state power, exactly like in our book."
They also pointed to the fact that the Q from the QAnon community is described almost exactly like Luther Blissett used to be described, "an entity
of about 10 people that have high security clearance."
One of the theories in the QAnon community is that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his own death in 1999 and became QAnon, which is also the year Q was
"We can't say for sure that it's an homage," they said. "But one thing is almost certain: our book has something to do with it. It may have
started as some sort of, er, 'fan fiction' inspired by our novel, and then quickly became something else."
When asked who they think Q could be, Bui, Cattabriga, and Guglielmi are fairly certain that the main readers of Q in the US are leftist and anarchist
activists. And there's increasing chatter in those worlds about laughing at the gullible Baby Boomer generation who actually believe 'this
What could the purpose be? What's the motive? Apart from having a laugh at people?
Well, the Democrats are starting to pick up on the crazier parts of Q, and as it melts into the mainstream media, expect more and more people to start
talking about how crazy the alt-right must be to believe this stuff, and it will be used to discredit Trump supporters.
Will it ever be possible to know for sure at this point? Now that so many people have written their own alleged Q Postings? Probably not. It seems
like one of those collaborative arts projects that has gotten out of control and picked up it's own momentum, and used by different groups for
