You must give it to the QAnon crowd: Their dedication to consistently finding new and absurd ways to convince themselves their conspiracy theories are the truth is really impressive!
Take for instance the newest theory to grip the community, which believes a Satan-worshipping cabal of pedophiles rules the Earth and former Republican President Donald Trump has been sent to vanquish them.
As seen below, QAnoners are excitedly claiming Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber is secretly aligned with Trump because he said "The best is yet to come" in his VMA acceptance speech, because Trump says that phrase a lot too.
Never mind almost every English-speaking person alive has probably said it at some time or Frank Sinatra made a whole song about it all the way back in 1959.
Signs are signs, okay‽‽
So how did this ridiculous theory start? It all began when Bieber won the MTV Video Music Award for Artist of the Year a couple of weeks ago.
In his acceptance speech, a visibly moved Bieber gushed about what the award might mean for his future.
"I just wanted to say that music is such an amazing opportunity and outlet to be able to reach people. I look around here and I see so many beautiful faces."
"I really do believe that the best is yet to come."
It was that last line that jumped out at the QAnon crowd, on the very thin basis Trump used the phrase at least three times during the 2020 election cycle.
Once during his 2020 State of the Union address, once while accepting the Republican nomination and once during his farewell speech after his loss this past January.
Practically within moments of Bieber uttering it, far-right conspiracy-laden channels on encrypted chat platforms like Telegram began circulating the belief Bieber chose his words for the express purpose of indicating solidarity with their bizarre Trump-worshipping crusade.
If that makes absolutely no sense to you, you're not alone.
On Twitter, people were astonished at how far the QAnon'ers were reaching on this one.
This isn't the first time Bieber has figured heavily in QAnon's theories.
They also believe the video for his hit 2020 song "Yummy" contained secret whistle-blowing messages about the so-called "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory.
That thoroughly researched and debunked bit of nonsense claimed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton runs a pedophilic kidnapping operation out of the basement of a D.C.-area pizza parlor that has no basement.
