The guy who played Jesus in ‘Passion of the Christ’ is leaning into a QAnon conspiracy theory … which believes children are being blood-drained for a chemical in their body.
Jim Caviezel made a guest appearance Friday at a right-wing convention called Clay Clark’s Health and Freedom Conference near Tulsa, OK … where organizers griped about COVID restrictions and what they consider to the government’s overreach in applying said rules.
For some reason, they beamed Caviezel in through a screen … this while addressing the issue of child trafficking (a real thing that deserves serious discussion), but which dove completely into sketchy QAnon territory once Jim started talking adrenochrome.
Jim — who was plugging a new movie he’s in about child trafficking — started out fine, but then said this about author Tim Ballard, whom he portrays in the flick … “He’s down there saving children as we speak, because they’re pulling kids out of the darkest recesses of hell right now, in dumps and all kinds of places. The adrenochrome-ing of children, look …”
He moved on from that point, but an MC asked him to circle back on it and explain further. Jim gave a very bare-bones description of what adrenochrome is and what he’s heard (but says he hasn’t seen) people do to get it … namely allegedly gutting kids alive to yank it out.
Not to go too far down the rabbit hole … but this is a cornerstone of QAnon dogma, a false one at that. They believe the world is run by an evil cabal of devil-worshipping cannibals — including some of the most powerful people in the world — who go around and do this.
The idea — according to these QAnon believers — is that the adrenochrome halts and/or reverses the aging process, and that it’s plentiful and most fruitful in children. Yes, it 1000% is bat-s*** crazy — evidenced in that fact it was lampooned in a recent “South Park” episode.
Pair that with the fact that Jewish people throughout history have been falsely accused of partaking in this practice — and subsequently persecuted for it since the Middle Ages — and a lot of people aren’t all too surprised the adrenochrome BS is being embraced by Caviezel.
Of course, he was Mel Gibson‘s lead man for ‘POTC’ — which was widely considered anti-Semitic in its portrayal of Jews. In light of this, some say the acorn hasn’t fallen far from the tree in that regard.
