On May 18th at 2:00 PM EST, HSToday and Sheehan Kane, from the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland, will discuss the unique threats that QAnon poses.
National security experts in the United States have recently warned that the QAnon conspiracy theory is a danger that could soon rival more traditional terrorist threats. Are their fears warranted? Are QAnon supporters like other U.S. extremists? This paper addresses these questions by examining 100 QAnon sympathizers who committed crimes in the United States through August 2021.
