QAnon is, unfortunately, one of the most popular conspiracy theories in town these days. But let’s not forget that there are conspiracy theories that are way more interesting and far less of a threat to American democracy.
For those unaware, QAnon is a conspiracy theory that, in general, claims we are governed by Satan-worshipping pedophiles—which include Democrats like President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among many others—who kidnap children and then murder and eat them to extract a chemical that will extend their life. Former President Donald Trump is the hero of QAnon, with followers believing that he was recruited by the military to break up the Satanic criminal ring and lock away its members. But that’s just the basics—QAnon has since absorbed pretty much everything into its slimy dome, including other conspiracy theories.
So let’s step away from QAnon and what it’s become and focus on some conspiracy theories that are also outlandish but don’t involve Satan and a hero named Trump.
