QAnon supporters have gathered in Dallas, Texas, on the grassy knoll near the spot where President John F Kennedy was assassinated 58 years ago, because they believe in a conspiracy theory that JFK’s dead son is about to be resurrected and become president.
The QAnon cult is led my a mysterious online mastermind known only as Q, and many of its followers believe that the codename is a cover for John Kennedy Jr. – despite the fact that he died in a light aircraft crash 22 years ago.
“The way that Q talks about JFK Sr in the posts," wrote QAnon insider Liz Crokin, "it is with such love and passion, it makes me think that it is someone that is close to him.
"To me, if If JFK Jr faked his death and was alive, it would make sense that he was Q.”
The cultists assembled in Dealey Plaza, where JFK was shot on November 3 1963, and painted a large white ‘X’ where the presidential motorcade was at the moment when Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal bullets.
Daily Beast reporter Steven Monacelli was on the scene and Tweeted impressions of the crowd.

He said that while none of the Q believers he interviewed in Dallas to “would say exactly how they expect [JFK Jr.] to show up,” they appear “seem to be gathering along the side of the road as if a motorcade were going to arrive any moment.”
QAnon is a crackpot conspiracy theory, and its followers believe that former president Donald Trump is fighting a secret war against elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles who control the US government and the media.
An influential QAnon source who goes under the name Whiplash347 told their 262,000 Telegram followers that Trump would be reinstated under a legal technicality, before stepping down to allow JFK Jr to take the presidency.
According to Whiplash347 Trump would meanwhile become a “king”, fulfilling various biblical prophecies about the End of the World.
There would also be a special message that went out to every telephone on Earth, the bizarre theory claimed, as well as a number of other improbable events, including everyone’s clock going back an hour, and the old Julian calendar being readopted, leading to the date jumping back to October 20.
Inside the tunnels underneath the US Capitol that panicked politicians fled through
While most of the QAnon cult’s beliefs are so bizarre as to be comical, there is a dark vein of racism and anti-semitism running through the members’ bizarre online discussions.
The cult was also a large part of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, in which “Stop The Steal” protesters, many of them armed, attempted to overturn the result of last year’s presidential election.
