Where were all the hangings we were promised?
The widely accepted belief within the QAnon conspiracy movement was that at some point before Joe Biden stepped on the stage to take the presidential oath, members of the military – on the orders of Mr Trump – would intervene to arrest Mr Biden and his wife along with Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, George and Laura Bush and other members of “the deep state.”
Many reacted with shock and despair as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th US president. “I just want to throw up,” said one in a popular chat on the Telegram messaging app. “I’m so sick of all the disinformation and false hope.” Others insisted “the plan” had not failed, finding new theories to latch on to.
For weeks, QAnon followers had been promoting 20 January as a day of reckoning, when prominent Democrats and other elite “Satanic pedophiles” would be arrested and executed on the orders of President Trump.
But, as Mr Biden took his oath and no arrests were made, some in the QAnon community had an uncomfortable meeting with reality.
“It’s done and we were played,” wrote another.
