HILLARY Clinton inadvertently fueled a bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory that she is a Satanist by sharing a photo from her studio that shows a book showing glass devils having sex.
“Erotics” by Italian glass artist Lucio Bubacco is one of many books seen resting on Clinton’s laptop pictured, which was released earlier this week showing his recording of his new podcast, “You And Me Both” .
An online seller says the 2018 hardcover book, which costs between $ 50 and $ 70, contains “carnival orgies, crystal nightmares and erotic fantasies in glass.”
It features photographs of handmade glass devils posing in various positions, some of them sexual.
Hundreds of QAnon conspiracy theorists, who support the debunked belief that President Donald Trump is fighting an elite of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who run the world, including Hillary and her husband Bill, have taken it as a sign that their baseless worldview is true.
Twitter user Miss Liberty, who spotted the book, posted: “I wonder why she would have a book by a Satanic ‘erotic glass artist’?” His post has been liked and re-tweeted thousands of times.
QAnon followers also think that a “deep state” operates within the government, largely run by democratic politicians and liberal-minded celebrities, which the president is trying to bring down.
The conspiracy theory has been linked to a series of violent incidents, such as the killing in New York of suspected mafia boss Francesco Cali.
His 24-year-old accused killer Anthony Comello said in court documents that he believed Cali was linked to the so-called Deep State and was acting under the president’s protection.
A user of the Q Research discussion forum on the far-right 8kun site, obsessed with conspiracy theory, said of the Clinton photo: “Satanic glass maker, wow.”
Dozens of other posts on 8kun also refer to the book.
The Q in QAnon is said to refer to an anonymous insider who has secret information about the Trump administration. The conspiracy theory began in 2017 and has since grown in popularity around the world.
Well-known personalities who have repeated some of QAnon’s claims include actors Roseanne Barr and James Woods, former porn star Jenna Jameson, and former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.
In 2018, Roseanne tweeted an unsubstantiated claim that President Trump was dismantling “child trafficking rings in high places around the world.”
James Woods, who has 2.6 million followers on Twitter, posted a conspiracy this week about Joe Biden wearing wire during his debate with the president.
Jenna Jameson posted in 2019: “US conspiracy theorists continue to be right.”
On July 4, Mike Flynn, the President’s First National Security Advisor, Mike Flynn, posted a video on Twitter that said, “Where we go, we all go!”
The phrase is used by QAnon supporters.
Travis View, a QAnon researcher and host of the QAnon Anonymous podcast, told The Sun, “This book in Hillary’s photo plays into QAnon’s belief that they can look behind the scenes of power and decode the hidden meaning.
“They believe that if they find images of the devil, they have found evidence of a crime.
“It’s crazy, ridiculous, ridiculous, but it doesn’t stop people from falling in love with it.
“Criminal investigators, for example, are not convinced that someone is a criminal or have no evidence that someone is a criminal if they find a picture of a devil in someone’s home. That’s not how law enforcement works.
“Hillary shouldn’t worry about the books she has in her study. It doesn’t really need to satisfy people’s disappointments. “
He added: “I hope we’re not coming to a situation like the way architects don’t put 13 floors in buildings because of people’s superstitions.
“If we have to start thinking more and more about QAnon theories in our lives and how to avoid it, it will be very concerning.
“Unfortunately, I think this conspiracy theory will last for a generation and if Trump wins the election the movement will explode.
“If he loses, he will become more radical. They will be convinced that there was a conspiracy against him and them.
“Either way, he’s here to stay. It’s really amazing how it has caught on and a lot depends on the social media giants. They have to do more to stop it. “
Joe Szimhart, QAnon’s cult information expert and debunker, said, “This just shows that this thing is getting out of control.
“Seeing Trump as an agent to stop a left-wing cabal from taking over the United States is ridiculous.
“It affects people’s fears of mind games and being manipulated, hidden signs like ‘the all seeing eye’ on the dollar bill, that sort of thing.
“The founding fathers said the country needs a solid education. Americans need to be able to think right so they can these things are not hidden symbols. The truth is that they mean nothing.
“If we are to fight this, it must be through education.”
Asked about QAnon in August, President Trump said, “I understand that he likes me a lot, which I appreciate. But I don’t know much about the movement. “
Presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized QAnon, calling it “mortifying” and adding “it is embarrassing and it is dangerous”.
Democratic Hope added that its believers should seek mental health care.
“I would advise people who believe that perhaps they should take advantage of the Affordable Care Act while it still exists,” he said.
