Some of the biggest promoters of the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory are in a civil war over how much money they should be wringing from their followers, with each side accusing the other of being “fake MAGA” agents for the Deep State.
The fight centers on the future of QAnon: An Invitation to The Great Awakening, a book for QAnon fans that came out earlier this year. QAnon believers rely on a series of mysterious clues posted anonymously on message boards by “Q” to decipher a world they believe revolves around Donald Trump’s secret war with Democratic pedophiles. So they snapped up the 270-page book that offered to explain those clues. Despite being described by one reviewer as “difficult to actually read,” the QAnon book neared the top of the Amazon charts in March.
Now the book’s 14 co-authors are divided over what’s next for the franchise, opening up yet another rift in the lucrative, fractious world of QAnon hucksters.
