The map in question. Designed by Dylan Louis Monroe at the Deep State Mapping project.

QAnon is a grand unified conspiracy theory which posits that President Trump is a secret agent working against an evil conspiracy run by the Democratic Party. It has hit the point where just about anything can and has been shoehorned into the narrative. QAnon believers have helpfully created a map of all the bullshit they think feeds into the conspiracy theory.[1] Since the map is an absolute cartoonish clusterfuck that reminds us of the work of crazy people in movies drawing a bunch of lines from paper to paper, and also the epitome of crank magnetism, we've provided a mostly readable version below. The dissection roughly follows the original map left-to-right and top-to-bottom:
