  • QAnon, to my knowledge are conspiracy theorists and WoD's rife with genuine conspiracies. It would be convenient for the secret masters of the world if the typical factions who claimed that such cabals existed were blatantly incorrect, bigotted and either mouthpieces or useful idiots to a human/sleeper establishment that doesn't want democratically accountable institutions interfering with their affairs. The idea is explored in Shadows of New York and Night Road, even if the latter doesn't name them specifically, although I would expect WoD's books to do so as well.
