‘How we will receive orders’: QAnon conspiracy theorists see hidden meaning in Trump’s 17 word text alert

Published

on

The federal government on Wednesday tested an emergency nationwide text message alert system.

Many Americans were stunned and annoyed.

But for believers in the so-called QAnon conspiracy theory, the message was a code and step towards President Donald Trump declaring martial law to prosecute his enemies, The Daily Beast reports.

“On the internet forum 8Chan, QAnon fans also noted that the test message was 17 words long — a significant number for believers in the conspiracy theory, because ‘Q’ is the 17th letter of the alphabet,” The Beast noted.

“That is how we will receive orders if all else fails,” one commentator predicted. “We are the next generation Minutemen! Standing by Sir!”

“Believers in QAnon—a conspiracy theory based on a series of internet clues posted by an anonymous character named ‘Q’ that posits a world in which Trump and the military are engaged in ceaseless, secret war with globalist Democratic pedophiles—think the text could mark the start of ‘The Storm,’ a fantastical MAGA dream in which Trump’s political enemies will be arrested and tried at military tribunals,” The Beast explained.

“Others focused on the portion of the message that said “no action is needed,” which they saw as an echo of their motto: ‘Trust the plan.’ That section of the test message, they believed, was a sign that Trump and the military are in control of the government and would soon settle all the country’s problems,” The Beast noted.

It has been suggested that QAnon is an elaborate prank being played on gullible Trump-loving Baby Boomers.

Noting that Vice President Mike Pence recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal proclaiming, “There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave',” the columnist was gobsmacked by the Trump administration's "delusions and magical thinking that have marked every step of the Trump administration’s response to Covid-19."
