The identity of Q, a top-secret government op and prophet of the extremist QAnon conspiracy theory, has been debated for years.
But in the finale of an HBO documentary series “Q: Into The Storm” the identity of Q seems to have been “slipped.”
Ron Watkins, administrator of the QAnon online home message board 8kun, or 8chan, told filmmaker Cullen Hoback, “It was basically three years of intelligence training, teaching normies how to do intelligence work. It was basically what I was doing anonymously before, but never as Q.” And after he said it, he smiled and cleared his throat, and the two shared a big laugh. And denies he is, or ever was, Q.
Ron Watkins is the owner and administrator of 8kun, along with his father Jim, and the two purported that Q is a high-level military or government official who is bringing down a cabal of Satan-worshipping Democratic elites. They spent much of the last year pushing the Big Lie. Watkins posted dangerous big lies on Twitter, including one that called for the arrest of Mike Pence as he accused him of treason.
