A week after President Joe Biden's inauguration, believers in the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory were looking for new hope.

"I think Trump is gone," one wrote on the messaging platform Telegram. "If you think about it, he never said most of what we expected, Q said it, etc. We were putting phrases together and trying to read into things. Trust the plan can mean anything."

Someone replied that they believed a plan—as long teased by "Q," an anonymous user on a fringe forum—to uproot Donald Trump's enemies was still proceeding apace. But another member of the chat offered a more practical action plan: a fascist slogan, an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, and a link to another, even more fringe Telegram channel.
