QAnon’s administrator Ron Watkins urged his feed’s followers Wednesday to “go back to their lives” now that Joe Biden has been sworn in.
“We gave it out all. Now we need to keep our chins up and go back to our lives as best we are able,” Watkins said using the CodeMonkeyZ account.
“We have a new president sworn in and it is our responsibility as citizens to respect the Constitution regardless of whether or not we agree with the specifics of details regarding officials who are sworn in.”
He continued: “We need to keep our chins up and go back to our lives as best we are able.”
The man was once the loudest conspiracy theorist and supported the unfounded voter-fraud claims that later evolved into violence.
After Watkins’ renunciation, unhappy comments emerged on social media mocking his sudden change of mind.
A Twitter user quoted Watkins’ last sentence and commented: “Doesn’t seem to cut it when you’ve built up your 100k+ subscribers on a diet of misinfo.”
