One of QAnon's most openly antisemitic influencers has been hiding in plain sight as a chiropractor in Denver, a Vice investigation revealed.

Craig Longley, originally from Texas, has been living a double life for several years; running a popular QAnon channel on Telegram, and working as a healthcare professional in Colorado.

Known to his far-right followers as InevitableET, Longley has gone to great lengths to protect his true identity since 2017.

But he has now been identified through images of him used on his social media channels and by those in Denver who know him, Vice's David Gilbert said.

A former client of Longley at his downtown Denver clinic, who asked to be referred to as Maria, is one of the people who helped identify Longley. She told Vice that she met him at a CrossFit gym in 2016.

She later signed up to chiropractic sessions with him and told the media outlet that Longley spoke to her about Jeffrey Epstein, Hillary Clinton, and the Obamas - popular boogeymen in the QAnon world.

"He was effectively trying to red pill me," Maria said.

Longley has also been identified via content he shared on his QAnon accounts. Three individuals, who were granted anonymity, told Vice that a profile picture of him used on his InevitableET Twitter account and an Instagram video of him reciting the QAnon Oath match the image of Longley.

A Vice review of content posted on his InevitableET pages shows that Longley has embraced many far-right views for at least four years. He has supported election fraud myths, COVID-19 denial, and the popular QAnon lie that Democratic politicians are part of a shadowy cabal of pedophiles, Vice said.

Much of the conspiracy theorist's content has also focused on vicious antisemitism, Gilbert reported. He has taken part in the "Blue the Jew" movement, where antisemites photoshop notable Jews blue to identify them, Vice added.

He has also claimed in Instagram posts that Jews are attempting to enslave the world and has endorsed material from the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - an infamous antisemitic conspiracy theory from the early 20th century.

In 2019, Vice reported, Longley achieved any QAnon influencer's dream; he was retweeted by then-President Donald Trump. In that tweet, he falsely claimed that "Trump has not been impeached."

But, following the January 6 insurrection, his Twitter account was suspended.

His banishment led him to establish the "We The Media" Telegram channel - one of the most popular forums for hardcore adherents of the discredited QAnon movement. It now has over 200,000 subscribers.

Longley's clout in the QAnon world has also provided him with an opportunity to speak at an upcoming conference in Dallas, Texas.

The now-identified influencer will be speaking at the "For God & Country Patriots Roundup" Memorial Day weekend event alongside controversial attorney Sidney Powell, former national security advisor Michael Flynn, Rep. Louie Gohmert, and Texas GOP chair Allen West, Vice said.
