Reports are in and QAnon is hot. It's so hot right now that people are making money hand-over-fist off of it, yet most people have no idea what it is, or how it got so big.
Reportedly, QAnon is a rambling kind of free-form far-right conspiracy theory that stars Donald Trump as the hero and liberator, and Hillary Clinton as the evil villain. According to these popular conspiracy theorists, the government has been investigating Hillary Clinton and all of her "elite" cronies, and one day the Justice Department will round them all up and they will face "punishment."
It may sound far-fetched to a lot of people, but QAnon has many believers, including Roseanne Barr and former baseball player Curt Schilling.
According to the Daily Beast, QAnon started on 4Chan. Someone named Q began posting cryptic clues on the boards, and before long there were dozens of clues that people began piecing together to create a narrative that some call "The Storm."
No one knows who Q is. It is entirely possible that Q is one person, but it could just as easily be two people. Or thirty people. There's no way to know. As dozens of clues became hundreds of clues, a video was uploaded to YouTube "explaining" it all. Then discussion groups popped on Twitter, where people compared notes.
