QAnon is a Russian psyop
Here are some examples of how QAnon accounts are talking about Putin and Ukraine.
“X22 Report” is run by Dave Hayes aka “Praying Medic” who works with Steve Bannon and Mike Flynn. Dave Hayes had the tripcode for “Q” and posted for many months.
Dave Hayes is promoting the worst version of Putin’s propaganda — which is the despicable lie that Ukraine is a “neo-nazi” country and that Putin’s murderous attack on Ukraine is actually “denazification.”
Jim Watkins, who controlled the website where “Q” lived for almost its entire existence is also promoting this literal Kremlin propaganda.
In order to be balanced about this, I will include Mike Flynn ally Aaron Maté who larps as an “anti-imperialist” leftist while he attacks anyone who points out Russian interference.
Here are some other prominent QAnon accounts promoting Putin’s propaganda. This isn’t just following along with the trends on the right — this is promoting the rationale Putin is giving for genocide.
Note that “⭐️⭐️⭐️“ indicates that the account is a “digital soldier” loyal to retired three-star general officer Mike Flynn.
