Dave Hayes, a self-declared prophet, Christian author, and online QAnon activist who is better known as the “Praying Medic,” declared in a video he posted on Monday that he is not a conspiracy theorist and only got into the Q movement because he has been called to “red-pill” Q followers about God.
Hayes has been one of the leading proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which claims that Trump administration insiders have been dropping hints for years about a supposed plan to take down the “deep state” and a worldwide satanic pedophilia network; Hayes’ videos promoting and explaining QAnon’s cryptic postings have racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. In the video he posted earlier this week, Hayes insisted that he is not interested in conspiracy theories and only got involved with the Q movement after God sent him several prophetic dreams.
“A lot of you are following me because of my Q decodes and we like to red pill normies about Q and about the deep state and about corruption around the world in politics and entertainment and media,” Hayes said. “I’m the red-haired stepchild in this whole movement, the Q movement, because I’m a reluctant convert to the idea of the deep state and the pedophile/human trafficking, global corruption, all that stuff. That is not something I’ve ever been interested in.”
Hayes said that unlike “most of the other people in this movement,” he is not a conspiracy theorist or a 9/11 truther and doesn’t care about such things.
“I got involved in the Q movement because God gave me dreams about Q and he was like, ‘I want you to focus on this, you need to learn, I’m going to red-pill you about corruption and human trafficking and all the other stuff that is going on,'” he said. “So as I have been getting red-pilled about all that corruption and stuff that you guys already know about, now I am red-pilling you about God.”
