QAnon fans thrilled after OAN host pushes mass 'execution' for people who 'stole' election from Trump
June 24, 2021
Believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory are enthusiastically circulating a video of a contributor at the Trump-loving One America News calling for the mass execution of the former president's enemies.
Via The Daily Beast's Will Sommer, an OAN contributor this week went off on a rant in which he falsely claimed that "voter fraud" cost former President Donald Trump the 2020 election, and said it was time to think about how to deal with the purported perpetrators.
"Exactly how many people were involved in these efforts to undermine the election?" he asked. "Hundreds? Thousands? Tens of thousands? How many people does it take to carry out a coup against the presidency?"
He then pivoted to the consequences that the purported coup plotters will face once their treachery is exposed.
"In the past, America had a very good solution for dealing with such traitors: Execution," he said.
According to Sommer, the clip has gone viral in QAnon chat rooms.
"I came across the clip because QAnon people are see it as proof that the mass executions are right around the corner," Sommer explains. "Lots of glee in the Q chat rooms, demands for how exactly their imagined executions will be carried out and complaints they had to wait too long."
