We all know Jake Angeli.

He’s the white man who stormed the Capitol dressed as Bullwinkle, wearing a horned helmet and fur. Apparently, he is also a Chad (a male Karen), who survives off an organic diet of white tears, complaining, whining, and privilege.

And because there is a separate jailing system for white people, white supremacy can storm the Capitol while in session, threaten the lives of Congress members, take photos of themselves doing it, and then demand an organic diet...AND GET IT!

Angeli, 33, whose real name is Jacob Anthony Chansley, was reportedly on a hunger strike since being arrested for being unable to handle his president losing an honest election. And because his mother didn’t pack him enough gluten-free snacks for his insurrection field trip, Chansley refused to eat the food of the common man. So Angeli or Chansley or Snowflake refused to eat since being arrested Saturday by U.S. Marshals. On Monday, the organic terrorists’ public defender informed the court that his client hadn’t eaten because he has a very restrictive diet that he adheres to for religious reasons and that religion is whiteness.

From KXAN:

Angeli, who is known as the “QAnon Shaman” has been known to be a proponent of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges Democrats and high-profile Hollywood celebrities are involved in a “deep state” of political control and child sex trafficking.

The Arizona resident was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and with violet entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

Phoenix Judge Deborah Fine told his public defender to figure out how to provide meals to her client, whose mother claims that if he doesn’t get organic food he will “get physically sick.”

And you know what prevails and continues to remain undefeated? Whiteness, America. Because even after attempting a coup on American democracy, this motherfucker is still eating better than half of the country.

Updated, 1/16/21, 9:12 a.m.: The U.S. Marshals in Arizona are now backtracking on the claims that Judge Fine ordered Angeli receive organic meals after his lawyer, Gerald Williams, claimed his client hadn’t eaten since his arrest because of his strict diet, according to Newsweek.

We’ll let Newsweek explain:

In a statement to Newsweek, the U.S. Marshal’s Office in Arizona confirmed that if an inmate has dietary requirements related to health issues or religious purposes “every effort is made to observe those needs.”

However, in a further update to Newsweek the U.S. Marshal’s Office backtracked on the “widely reported misinformation” that Judge Fine ordered Angeli be given an organic diet.

According to a court order signed by Fine, there had been a “misunderstanding” regarding Angeli’s dietary requirement.

The affidavit states that Williams was “unsure” whether the restrictive diet was due to medical or religious reasons. There was also no mention of the nature of the restrictive diet, nor is it common for courts to ask about the nature of any request, which could include Kosher or diabetic requirements, due to privacy concerns.

“The Court did not order any specific diet for Mr. Chansley. The Court trusts that the United States Marshal and Mr. Chansley’s attorney have already or will communicate about the appropriate course of action regarding any legitimate dietary needs Mr. Chansley may have,” Fine wrote.

So, even though the judge didn’t demand Angeli receive organic meals, what remains unclear is whether Angeli is indeed receiving organic food since the U.S. Marshals are making “every effort” to observe his dietary needs. In any case, there seems to be more concern about what this man is eating than for the millions of Americans left in poverty because of the pandemic.
