Hundreds of QAnon supporters gathered on the infamous grassy knoll in Dallas on Tuesday in anticipation of President John F. Kennedy’s long-dead son JFK Jr. announcing that he is alive and will run as Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate in 2024.
John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn Bessette, and her sister Lauren, all died in a plane accident off Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, in 1999. After his plane disappeared, 18 hours later, Navy divers found their bodies still in their seats in the wreckage.
Pictures uploaded to social media Steven Monacelli, the publisher of Protean magazine, showed scores of people gathered outside the AT&T Discovery Plaza in Dallas at around 8pm on Monday, demonstrating the staggering lure of QAnon.
Many were wearing shirts proudly supporting Trump, with one woman wearing a campaign-style Tshirt with the words: “Trump/JFK Jr.”
As they eagerly awaited JFK Jr’s return, large crowds were seen waiting on the grassy knoll from which President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.
The QAnon crowd recited the Pledge of Allegiance at 12.29pm, expecting JFK Jr. to make his announcement at 12.30pm, and chanted, ‘Let’s Go Brandon,’ a euphemism for ”F*** Joe Biden,’ as they held a Trump/Kennedy flag.
Monacelli writes that they were there because of a ‘popular QAnon idea recently’ that ‘JFK Jr. will be making a big statement at Dealey Plaza by a grassy knoll.
The event demonstrates how powerful the QAnon Movement still holds among its loyal supporters.
When he didn’t show up, his supporters suggested that he would rather attend a Rolling Stones concert later on in the evening. Many became convinced that the people in the area were dead celebrities. According to the Daily Beast, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams were among them.
JFK Jr. is a prominent figure within the QAnon conspiracy group, with some believing he is Q, an anonymous leader.
Forbes reports that in 2019, some believed he would return to Trump’s side as running mate on July 4.
Gizmodo reports that conspiracy experts believe JFK Jr., the son and former President John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy Onassis will reveal that he switched political affiliations to fake his own death to avoid retribution.
As JFK Jr. made his big announcement, a crowd formed on the Dallas grassy knoll.

As JFK Jr. did not appear at 12.30pm, the crowds waited in line.

Popular QAnon theory suggests that he faked death.
According to the theory, he would declare that he was running alongside former President Donald J. Trump in 2024’s presidential election. However, Trump would step down, and JFK Jr. would become president. He would also appoint Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor, as his vice president.
Trump would then’mostly’ become the king among kings. This conspiracy was revealed by a popular QAnon Telegram user with more than 100,000 subscribers, who posted about it Monday. It did not say what the title of ‘king-of-kings’ would mean.
They believed that JFK Jr. would appear and that the clocks will go back an hour, that people will adopt the Julian calendar, as well as the date, according to Newsweek.
According to the theory, JFK Jr. will then help usher into a new age of American prosperity, just as his father did in 1960s.
Telegram user Negative48 also suggested that JFK Jr., Jackie Kennedy and JFK Jr. would all reappear. After which JFL would travel the world for seven more days, then transfer the presidency to Trump. Gizmodo reports that this is not how presidential power works.
It is unclear why QAnon followers thought JFK Jr. might appear at the spot where his father was famously shot to death in 1963.
Monacelli writes that 12.30pm came and passed, despite the fervor. JFK Jr. was not there.
Telegram user Shayan Sardarizadeh wrote that he was sorry for everyone. We now look like a bunch liars, but we must keep the faith,’ Shayan Sardarizadeh, a BBC Journalist, said.

Newsweek reports that not everyone in the QAnon movement believes JFK Jr. will return.
John Sabal, the organizer of the QAnon for God and Country Patriot Double Down convention in Oct, stated that the belief would make the movement look absolutely insane’
He shared the prophetic message on Telegram, writing: “Here’s another example hot garbage propaganda of new age blasphemous hot trash that’s currently being circulated.”
“None” of this is part of our true movement and was never mentioned in a single drop. He wrote that the belief was not ever mentioned. ‘There is only one King of Kings, and that is Yeshua/Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
“This couldn’t be more wrong.”
Sabal also shared another post Tuesday, as the crowds gathered on the grassy knoll.
According to Newsweek, he wrote that he encouraged people to get involved in their communities, attend every meeting and let their voices be heard. Help people wake up. It’s okay to be kind.
Travis View, a conspiracy theory researcher, and cohost of QAnon Anonymous podcast, claims that Q, the group leader, has also publicly opposed the JFK Jr. conspiracy.
Gizmodo learned that Q repeatedly denied that JFK Jr. was alive, but some members of the QAnon community insist he will return despite this.
The QAnon conspiracy movement is a wide-ranging conspiracy theory claiming that Trump is waging a war against a global elite Satan worshipping pedophile cabal in government, business, and the media.
Its followers believe that Trump will expose pedophiles and order its members to be arrested and sentenced.
The conspiracy was believed to have started in October 2017 with a post in a rightwing 4Chan chatroom, Calm Before the Storm, written by someone calling themselves Q Clearance Patriot.
Since then, it has grown to include thousands more followers, some of which were involved in January 6th’s Capitol riots.
In recent years, the QAnon conspiracy movement has seen a rise in popularity. This is a man in a QAnon tshirt, waiting in line to see former President Donald Trump at a rally in Georgia on September 25, 2021.
It claims that Trump is waging an underground war against a global cabal made up of elite Satan-worshipping, pedophiles in government, media and business. This sign is held up by a supporter of the movement outside the North Carolina GOP convention, June 2021.
