QAnon -  is a bizarre far right conspiracy theory detailing a supposed secret plot by an alleged deep state against U.S. President Donald Trump. 

A murder has been carried out by a purported follower of Q.   The ramming of a truck into the gates of the Canadian P.M.'s residence was by a man who reportedly followed QAnon.  There are now multiple people seeking congressional election who are Q followers.

And yes, QAnon features on The FBI's list of dangerous cults. It is wide spread across social media with 'Q drops' tempting conspiracy minded recruits with tidbits of disinformation including that The Covid 19 virus was created by Democrats.
