Jim Caviezel was once a correct film star. He co-starred in motion pictures with Jennifer Lopez and Henry Cavill. He appeared like Hollywood’s subsequent massive factor for a minute — stable actor, traditional beauty, GREAT eyes. Heck, he starred in one of many highest grossing movies of all time, The Ardour of the Christ, for Mel Gibson. Now he’s utilizing all that expertise to induct extra harmless individuals into the cult of QAnon.
His new film Sound of Freedom is an enormous hit, having racked up $40 million on the field workplace on a modest funds. The motion movie, about personal contractors saving youngsters from intercourse trafficking, has been described as “QAnon-adjacent.” It’s primarily an influence fantasy for believers within the conspiracy principle, which, briefly, labels any political enemy of Donald Trump as a part of a world baby trafficking ring.
The film itself doesn’t come proper out and say “all liberals are demon-worshipping pedophiles who drink the blood of the kids they abduct” — it simply hints at a number of the most weird Q concepts. The intercourse traffickers within the movie are considerably generic “elites,” wealthy and highly effective of us which an inexpensive particular person may view as a reference to Trump’s old pal Jeffrey Epstein — however which Q followers will take as a god whistle about everybody from Hollywood and all Democrats.
Largely it focuses on a fundamental motion story a couple of white American hero capturing his method right into a pedo ring to avoid wasting the children. It’s primarily an outline of how the #Pizzagate guy noticed himself in his thoughts, as an alternative of what he was — a radicalized idiot with a shotgun, endangering harmless individuals as a result of he believed a narrative made up by propagandist grifters. It additionally stars Mira Sorvino. It’s an precise film.
It’s just like the Battlefield Earth of QAnon. Get ’em with the thriller then inform hapless viewers, “you realize, there actually is a large baby trafficking operation taking place proper beneath our noses — if you wish to study extra, simply click on on this hyperlink.”
However Caveizel isn’t considering a veneer of plausibility. In interviews for the movie he’s come out as full Q — with all of the inanity that entails. Talking on the Actual America’s Voice podcast, hosted by Steve Bannon — sure, that one — he made it clear he believes all of the craziness. He mentioned about Bannon’s outdated boss:
“I additionally wish to say to Donald Trump, then once you watch this film, you’ll be at peace and at relaxation since you, greater than anybody, have achieved unbelievable issues Jesus talks about, that you realize religion with out works is lifeless.”
You recognize all of the issues Donald Trump has achieved that Jesus talks about. Funneling cash from youngsters’s charities, the sermon on the golden rest room, “let he who hasn’t cheated on his spouse with a porn star forged the primary stone,” all that. Massive Jesus man, that Trump. He continued:
“I imagine Donald Trump was chosen by God Almighty, and I’m speaking in regards to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit God.”
Only a very regular, rational factor to imagine. Yep.
Keep in mind, the Q people don’t simply imagine within the trafficking conspiracy — the true level is that Donald Trump is the one who’s secretly combating it. Trump. The man who’s solely ever been out for himself, who says he doesn’t should ask God for forgiveness as a result of he’s by no means achieved something improper in his life. The one who a jury discovered had dedicated sexual abuse. That one. He’s the nice man. Caviezel clearly believes that nonsense. He continued:
“That’s why the satan needs to kill him, needs to harm them. It’s at all times been this manner since Pharaoh after which to Herod and now however greater than ever and enslaving them and doing many, many issues together with organ harvesting and adrenochroming. And I’ll say that till I’m, you realize, I’m lifeless.”
Wow, a lot to unpack there. He’s evaluating Trump to Moses (whom Pharoah needed to kill) and to Jesus (who was executed beneath Herod). So let’s all take a second and inbreathiate that assertion.
He additionally mentioned “adrenochroming” — a reference to the QAnon perception that elites drink the blood of infants to get the drug adrenochrome. Caviezel clearly believes this. It’s not only a film to him, that’s the watered-down model. He advised Bannon:
“It’s true, and there can be plenty of issues which are going to come back out.”
As with many cults, Q has constantly mentioned issues will come out, the reality can be revealed, they’ve even marked a number of dates which have come and gone. Whereas Trump refuses to inform them it’s all crap — as a result of they’ll vote for him — he additionally won’t ever come out and inform the remainder of the world about his secret campaign to avoid wasting youngsters. As a result of then he’ll be requested about it, and he doesn’t have any info or proof to again any of it up. As a result of it’s make-believe. It’s nonsense.
Sadly it’s harmful nonsense.
A number of dads — you realize, the important thing demographic for this kind of middle-aged motion star movie — have gotten so indoctrinated by the Q conspiracy theories they misplaced contact with actuality and turned on their families. We’ve heard a couple of story up to now couple years of males murdering their own children due to what they learn on QAnon and Q-related websites. The tales are heartbreaking — and all too actual.
The story of Sound of Freedom might be completely serviceable and entertaining. However it’s complete BS.
Intercourse trafficking, particularly underage trafficking, is all too actual, and it’s a horrible drawback. However little or no of it may be solved by barging in with weapons. That’s Hollywood nonsense. Most trafficking victims aren’t snatched off the road, they’re recruited — typically by individuals they belief — boyfriends, coaches, youth pastors. If you wish to know extra about trafficking learn what specialists should say. Learn the actual testimony of survivors of trafficking, just like the victims of Jeffrey Epstein. Precise info — not conspiracy principle nonsense or Hollywood bulls**t.
