QAnon conspiracy theorists are STILL at Dallas’ grassy knoll awaiting John F. Kennedy Jr

More than a hundred QAnon members are still in Dallas awaiting the return of long-dead John F. Kennedy Jr. – more than three weeks after they first arrived at the grassy knoll on November 2 in the hopes he would reappear at 12.29pm – the exact time his father was shot dead 48 years ago. 

On Monday, the group took to a bridge overlooking the infamous Dealey Plaza near the grassy knoll to mark the 48th anniversary of the assassination of JFK in the hope his son, who died in a plane crash in 1999, would return and help bring Donald Trump back to the presidency. 

He did not make reappearance.

But many QAnon followers say they plan to stay put in the Texan city until the later lawyer and journalist returns from the dead. 

At least 100 QAnon supporters returned to Dealey Plaza on the 48th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in hopes of the return of his son, John F. Kennedy Jr

Some of the supporters were seen chanting 'Let's Go Brandon,' a euphemism for 'F*** Joe Biden' as they held a Trump/Kennedy flag

A popular QAnon theory, though, holds that he faked his death and will return to help rescue the country

JFK Jr., who was an actor and magazine publisher, is a popular figure within the QAnon conspiracy movement, with some believing that he is in fact Q, the group’s anonymous leader. 

The fanatics initially hoped to see Kennedy appear on the mound where his father was killed on November 2, but changed their story, claiming he would come back from the dead at a Rolling Stones concert in Dallas later that day.

It’s not clear why they chose November 2 as the date he would return.   

Asked when their messiah was going to arrive, the Q believers told reporters that JFK Jr. was going to appear at 12.29pm. When that time rolled around the people started reciting the pledge of allegiance but there was no sign of the former president’s son.

They stuck around, clinging to the hope that their wildest dreams would come true and the Qs remained at the hallowed site even as a torrential downpour drenched their signs and banners which said: ‘Trump / JFK JR 2020.’

Some envisioned that he would arrive triumphantly.  ‘We’re expecting a parade,’ said a woman named Ginny who had travelled 700 miles from Nebraska.

‘JFK is going to be here,’ she told Rolling Stone magazine.

Ginny described how many dead celebrities, such as the comedian Richard Pryor, are actually still alive and are part of a secret plan which would be revealed at the Rolling Stones concert at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas that night.

‘Robin Williams was here the other day … Michael Jackson is high in the movement,’ she told the magazine.

The Rolling Stones were indeed in fine voice at the Cotton Bowl that night, with Mick Jagger gyrating on stage in front of legions of fans. But there was no sign of JFK Jr.

JFK Jr. died in a plane crash off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts in 1999, along with his wife, Carolyn Bessette and her sister, Lauren.

Navy divers found their bodies still strapped into their seats in the wreckage 18 hours after his plane, which he was piloting, disappeared.    

In 2019, Forbes reports, some believers expected JFK Jr. to return on July 4, again as Trump’s running mate. 

The conspiracy theorists now reportedly believe JFK Jr., the son of former President John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy Onassis, will reveal he switched political affiliations and faked his own death to avoid retribution, according to Gizmodo

According to the theory, he would announce that he was running with former President Donald J. Trump in the 2024 presidential election, but Trump would step down and let JFK Jr. step in as president and appoint former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn as his vice president. 

Trump would then ‘most likely’ become the king of kings, a popular QAnon Telegram account with more than 100,000 subscribers wrote about the conspiracy in a post on Monday. It did not specify what becoming the ‘king of kings’ would entail.

They also believed that after JFK Jr. would appear, the clocks would go back an hour, people would adopt the Julian calendar, and the date would go back to October 20, according to Newsweek.

JFK Jr., the theory posits, will then help usher in a new age American prosperity, as his father did in the 1960s.

Protzman also offered the theory that JFK, JFK Jr. and Jackie Kennedy would all reappear, after which JFK would tour the world for seven days, transfer the presidency back to Trump and die, Gizmodo reports, even though that is not how presidential power works. 

It is unclear why the QAnon followers thought JFK Jr. would appear at the location where his father was famously murdered in 1963.  

One person on Telegram wrote afterwards: ‘I’m sad for everybody. We now look like a bunch of liars, but let’s keep the faith,’ BBC Journalist Shayan Sardarizadeh said.

But not every member of the QAnon movement believes that JFK Jr. will come back, Newsweek reports.

John Sabal, who organized the QAnon for God and Country: Patriot Double Down convention in October said the belief would make the movement ‘look absolutely insane.’

He shared the prophetic post on his own Telegram page, writing: ‘Here’s another example of new-age blasphemous hot garbage propaganda that’s currently in circulation.

‘None of this is of our true movement or was ever mentioned in a single drop. Not ever,’ he wrote about the belief. ‘There is only one king of kings and that is our Lord and Savior Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

‘This couldn’t be more wrong.’

In another post shared on Tuesday as the crowds descended on the grassy knoll, Sabal implored his followers to spread their message at public meetings and added ‘JFK Jr. dead or alive won’t help us.

‘Get involved in your community, go to every meeting, let your voice be heard,’ he wrote, according to Newsweek. ‘Help people wake up. Be nice about it.’

Q, the group’s leader, has also explicitly spoken out against the JFK Jr. conspiracy, according to Travis View, a conspiracy theory researcher and co-host of the QAnon Anonymous podcast.

‘Q has repeatedly denied that JFK Jr. is alive, but some of the QAnon community insist that he will return despite that,’ he told Gizmodo. 

The QAnon conspiracy theory movement is a wide-ranging conspiracy theory that Trump is waging a secret war against a global cabal of elite Satan worshipping pedophiles in government, business and the media.

Its followers believe Trump will expose the pedophiles, order its members be arrested and sentenced to death. 

It is believed that the conspiracy began in October 2017 with a post on an obscure, rightwing 4Chan chatroom titled Calm Before the Storm and written by someone using the name Q Clearance Patriot.  

Since then, it has grown with thousands of followers, some of whom were involved in the Capitol riots on January 6.

In the end, it was the conditions that evening most likely caused the tragedy.
