Caesars in Las Vegas Cancels QAnon Group’s Conference

'The conference was billed to feature speakers including former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn and 8kun website owner Jim Watkins...'

(Headline USA) Casino giant Caesars Entertainment Inc. said Wednesday that a conference scheduled next month in Las Vegas by the QAnon group won’t be held at any Caesars property.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the “Patriot Double Down” event organized by Patriot Voice would be moved, postponed or canceled. Event officials did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages.

Caesars Entertainment executive Kate Whiteley confirmed a Las Vegas Review-Journal report that the Oct. 23-25 event billed as a “Great Awakening Weekend” won’t be held at the new Caesars Forum convention space near the Las Vegas Strip.

With tickets from $650 to $3,000, the conference was billed to feature speakers including former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn and 8kun website owner Jim Watkins.

QAnon is a theory featuring the belief abortionists, satanic pedophiles, and child sex traffickers are in collusion with the deep state and will be uncovered at a reckoning followers call a “Great Awakening.”

QAnon signs are often seen at rallies for former President Donald Trump, and some adherents are facing persecution for roles in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

Caesars said previously that events held at its facilities were not an endorsement of any group or organization or a reflection of company views. It also said that all attendees would have to comply with coronavirus mitigation measures, including mask requirements.
