Ex-QAnon Follower Apologizes To Anderson Cooper For Believing He 'Ate Babies' In Wild Interview

CNN

The QAnon conspiracy theory is one of the most pervasive and outlandish conspiracy theories to cross the American consciousness in several decades.

For those unfamiliar, the QAnon conspiracy claims former President Donald Trump was fighting a secret war against a cult of cannibalistic pedophiles who worshipped Satan and were secretly embedded in the governments of several national powers.

One of the folks implicated in this wild conspiracy was CNN News Anchor Anderson Cooper, who recently conducted an interview with ex-believer Jitarth Jadeja. They discussed his deprogramming and what the conspiracy cult actually had him buying into.

One particular moment is sticking out to the public as extremely bizarre.

"Did you, at the time, believe that Democrats, high-level Democrats and celebrities were worshipping Satan, drinking the blood of children?" Anderson Cooper asked Jadeja, an Australian citizen. Jadeja confirmed not only did he believe some nameless Democrats were doing that, but he thought Cooper himself was partaking.

"Anderson, I thought you did that, And I would like to apologize for that right now. So, I apologize for thinking that you ate babies. But, yeah, 100%."





In addition, he said some followers believe Cooper is a robot, acting on behalf of "a group of fifth-dimensional, inter-dimensional, extraterrestrial bipedal bird aliens called blue avians."




QAnon links up with a network of conspiracy theories, including one called Pizzagate, which implicated the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C. as a front for a child sex trafficking ring operated by the Democrats with business conducted in a non-existent basement.

Most everything involved with QAnon is easily disproven with just a modicum of research and common sense and entirely illogical.





QAnon continues to dominate a large part of the far-right of American politics.

Although the claims "Q" has been making have been extensively debunked and none of what Q promised has come to pass, deprogrammed Q believers are prime targets for White supremacist organizations. They seek to recruit people who have lost faith in QAnon in order to put their energy and anger someplace else.

Online misinformation, which is how QAnon communicate (often via a message board entitled 8chan) has been a major topic of conversation surrounding United States politics since the 2016 general election.
