QAnon and the plot to break reality... In Oct 2017 Donald Trump says something weird in a room full of military figures: “Maybe this is the calm before the storm.” A few weeks later a poster on 4chan who calls himself Q starts to tell a crazy story about a coming storm, in which Trump is engaged in an epic battle against a cabal of satanic paedophiles who have hijacked the American Republic. A group of bloggers mainstream the theory and it starts having a life of its own with real world consequences. Qanon is born. But who is directing it? Producer: Lucy Proctor Presenter: Gabriel Gatehouse
