QAnon's New Conspiracy: Democrats Are Stealing African Children - 2020-08-03
ABUJA, Nigeria—Just days after Twitter announced that it's no longer letting the QAnon conspiracy theory run rampant on its site, the theory's promoters began to target media in Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation and the world's biggest Black society, sending emails depicting United States Democrats as anti-Black to multiple newsrooms and individual journalists.
In one email sent to multiple journalists, including news staff of Cool FM, Wazobia FM and Nigeria Info FM—Nigeria's three biggest private radio stations—the sender, who goes by the name "William Gyado," claimed a U.S. government agent with access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its American opponents had found that "there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who rule and control almost everything in the world" and that these pedophiles are Americans who exploit Black people, including children in West Africa, and brutalize African Americans using law-enforcement agents.
The email also says former U.S. vice-president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden disrespects Black people and is being protected by pedophiles. The sender claims U.S. President Donald Trump knows all about this evil cabal's wrongdoing and that most Americans elected Trump to put an end to the cabal . In the end, there is a call on Africans to share the message with their contacts and social media followers "until it gets to our brothers and sisters in the U.S. who will be voting in the presidential election in November."
