One of the theories circulated by the QAnon Nebula claims that the son of “JFK”, John F. Kennedy Jr, died in 1994 with his wife Carolyn and his sister-in-law Lauren when the plane he was piloting crashed at sea off the state of Massachusetts, was due to reappear around noon, to announce the return of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States.
Donald Trump was to become “the king among kings” ensured a publication posted Monday on a QAnon account.
“An extremely disturbing sign”
Alas, the revelation did not take place and, a few hours later, the rain had dispersed the last supporters of QAnon. “The very large crowd gathered for the reappearance of JFK Jr. after his mock death is not something funny,” said Democratic Senator from Connecticut Chris Murphy on Twitter .
The very large crowd gathered to see the JFK Jr. reveal himself after his faked death isn’t funny. It’s a deeply worrying sign of how unhinged our political conversation has become from truth. https://t.co/MMCiKu7Mev

“This is an extremely disturbing sign of how the political debate has become completely detached from the truth,” he stressed.
Born in 2017 in the United States, the QAnon movement takes its name from enigmatic messages posted by a certain “Q”, supposed to be a senior American official close to the former president American Donald Trump.
The QAnon Nebula is notably a proponent of a theory that Joe Biden and the Democrats are part of a global Satanist and pedophile conspiracy. Over the years, these theories have convinced more and more Americans, and the FBI is monitoring this far-right group, seen as potentially dangerous. A number of QAnon activists were thus among the crowd that attacked the Capitol on January 6.
