Will the Dutch hacker Rop Gonggrijp be Donald Trump’s savior? If it is up to American conspiracy theorists, yes. Gonggrijp is at the center of a bizarre theory: he is said to be the mysterious ‘Kraken’ who will help Trump prove fraud in the presidential election.
Gonggrijp (52) is a big critic of computer voting. Supporters of QAnon, popular in radical right circles, think he is the one a Trump attorney spoke of last Friday when she was interviewed by Fox News. Speaking about what she thinks is a controversial supplier of voting machines, she said: ‘I’m going to release the kraken”. That means as much as: I will deliver a devastating blow to our opponents.
Gonggrijp looks back with amazement at what happened next: “Conspiracy thinkers, who see hidden messages everywhere, started googling: squatters, computers, voting machines. That way they ended up on my English-language Wikipedia page. ” Rop Gonggrijp is the founder of internet provider XS4all and he plays a prominent role in a 1985 book by Jan Jacobs about hackers. The title is – yes – Cracking and Computers. Conclusion of the conspiracy theorists: this can’t be a coincidence, he is Kraken, Trump’s secret weapon.
Gonggrijp was one of the initiators of the action group ‘We do not trust voting computers’ in 2006. Terms like Wikileaks appear on his Wikipedia page because he was involved in 2010 in the creation of the film Collateral Murder, about Iraqi civilians who are shot from an American helicopter.
On Twitter, where he has more than seven thousand followers, Gonggrijp gained many dozens in a short time. “They were all crazy,” says Gonggrijp. “Their timeline was full of nonsense theories of QAnon.” According to this movement swears an elite of pedophile satanists together to hold Trump off a second term.
Gonggrijp laughs at his ‘exposure’ by QAnon. “It is nonsense. These people see connections that are not there. But just explain that. I tried it a few times, it didn’t work. They see no difference between decent news sites and news agencies and sites full of reports about UFOs. That’s why I blocked them. I don’t want to bother my normal followers with their reactions. ”
As a critic of voting machines, does Gonggrijp actually think that there was widespread fraud in the US elections? “No. Not because I have so much faith in those computers, but because observers from both parties were in polling stations and because ballots were used that were scanned. You can count those. “
The fact that such banknotes still exist is mainly due to activists like himself, who warned that elections cannot be checked by computer. “I already said fifteen years ago that doubts about an election result can lead to brute force or civil war. Then I was laughed at. Now you can see it happening. ”
Gonggrijp himself does not want anything to do with it, his new one also shows Twitterprofiel: “Not Kraken. Go away.”
