DELUDED QAnon fans believe Donald Trump sent them a secret message in Morse Code during his video where he condemned the Capitol riot.
President Trump issued a video Wednesday night after he faced intense pressure to speak out against the violent mob which stormed the Capitol building in Washington DC which left five people dead.
During his video speech which was posted to the White House’s Twitter account, Trump said the rioters were not his “true supporters” and slammed the attack as a “calamity”.
“I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week,” Trump said. “Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement.”
In the video Trump can be seen to move his hand four minutes and 20 seconds in and QAnon devotees believe he was sending them a message.
The bizarre claim was initially made on a pro-QAnon forum called the Great Awakening, where the poster claimed that Trump’s hand movements at that specific time represented “dash-dash-dot-dash,” which represents the letter Q in Morse Code
The topic was then picked up on numerous Telegram channels that have gained huge numbers of users since Twitter purged QAnon-linked accounts and Parler was forced offline.
On Telegram, as well as the social media site Gab, QAnon followers are discussing that they think Trump is about to send them a message using the Emergency Broadcast System, so he can get around what they see as censorship by the big tech firms.
Others have been predicting there will be a national power blackout which will signal the start of Trump’s plan to overturn what they see as the deep state which has been plotting against him.
It is thought QAnon followers played a key role in the violent storming of Capitol Hill and the takeover of the building.
The group has seen its popularity rise over the past 12 months which has in the past received the implicit backing by Trump.
Many of its supporters have become angry over what they see as a fraudulent presidential election which saw Trump lose to his Democrat rival Joe Biden, who will be inaugurated next week.
There has been no evidence of widespread election fraud and Congress recently certified Biden would be the next president.
The QAnon faithful though are still clinging onto the belief there will be some unspecified event that will topple Biden’s inauguration.
