QAnon Followers Say White House's St. Patrick's Day Lighting Was 'Go' Message

Supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory have declared that the White House being bathed in green light on Wednesday had nothing to do with St. Patrick's Day, and instead was a coded reference justifying their beliefs.

The White House celebrated the Irish holiday by having the lights turn green in the evening, as well as turning the water from the fountains on the North and South lawns the same color.

Despite this tradition existing for a number of years, followers of the radical QAnon movement believe this year the green lights were a signal only they have deciphered showing that their so-called "plan" is still going ahead.

For QAnon, green is to be interpreted as a "go," sign, proving that the next stage of the plan—which at this point can mean any number of suggestions and predictions—would happen that night.

Telegram channel QNews TV, which has more than 53,000 subscribers, posted a picture of the White House in green with the caption "we are winning big."

The Telegram channel [QDrops][Crumbs] posted pictures of the White House with green lights with the caption: "Look what I just found. St Patrick's Day 'coincidence'? Hmmm?"

We The Media, a hugely popular Telegram with more than 200,000 subscribers, also noted that Trump Winery "just happens to be having a 17% off deal on wines on the day associated with the color green."

While the number 17 is hugely significant with the QAnon movement—Q being the 17th letter of the alphabet—the We The Media channel appears to ignore the fact St. Patrick's Day takes place on March 17.

Other followers of QAnon also suggested that the White House changing colors was the highly anticipated "green castle" moment coming true, with an entire thread about it being posted on the, a Reddit-style messageboard site used by QAnon supporters.

The "Green Castle" and "Red Castle" theory, loosely based on the implantation of the Army Corps of Engineers, was deciphered from a cryptic post by the mysterious figure known as "Q" in March 2018.

The messages or "drops" from Q, which appeared on 4chan and then 8Kun, form the basis of a majority of QAnon beliefs.

Despite "Q" being almost silent on 8Kun—having slowed down his posts coincidentally around the time Donald Trump lost the election—the conspiracy theorists still have a catalog of thousands of posts dating back to late 2017 to decipher how they see fit.

On Wednesday Q-Tip, a Telegram channel with more than 103,000 subscribers, posted pictures deciphering past "Q" posts along with timestamp on certain tweets in a chaotic attempt to suggest that March 17, 2021 and the color green are hugely significant for QAnon.

Followers of the radical movement often twist and manipulate world events to claim that they had been predicted to have happened all along when forced to face situations that compromise their beliefs.

This includes not worrying that Trump lost the election because he would take down satanic pedophiles at Joe Biden's inauguration.

When this failed to occur, QAnon supporters merely claimed Trump was actually going to return as president on March 4.
