To celebrate the Fourth, Michael Flynn posts a pledge to conspiracy group QAnon - 2020-07-05
Flynn had been circling the QAnon world for months, but this takes his flirtation with the group a step further. As the QAnon conspiracy theory goes, powerful liberal politicos are running an underground child sex trafficking operation but will ultimately be exposed and charged for their crimes after "The Storm." There is, of course, no evidence that such a scheme exists. The oath, which includes the QAnon slogan "where we go one, we go all," refers to "an oath to become 'digital soldiers' to defend the Constitution," explains the Daily Beast's Will Sommer. In the last month, following other cryptic messages of support for the QAnon conspiracy, Flynn added #TakeTheOath to his Twitter bio. As Sommer reports:
Flynn plays a large role in QAnon mythos, where his guilty plea for lying to the FBI about his discussions with Russian officials has been spun to make him a persecuted victim of the deep state—or even, in some cases, as the mysterious "Q" himself. Many QAnon fans have added three star-emojis to their Twitter handles, in a nod to Flynn's status as a retired three-star general. Pictures of books supposedly signed by Flynn with the QAnon slogan "Where we go one, we go all" are seen in the QAnon community as powerful "proof" that QAnon is real, although their authenticity hasn't been proven.
