Jake Angeli, a.k.a. the “QAnon Shaman,” was recently sentenced to 41 months in federal prison for his role in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and now he’s suggesting that he’s a lot like Jesus Christ, Mohandas Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in an interview he gave to Joe Oltmann of the “Conservative Daily” podcast via telephone.

Oltmann introduced Angeli by saying:

“We’re going to call him America’s Shaman. Just show respect for the fact that he showed up at the Capitol, and was highly respectful — prayed — and he just got sentenced to 41 months in a federal jail.”

Angeli said he wouldn’t discuss any of the details of his case, but did go off on some wild tangents about other topics, according to Colorado Newsline:

“(He) spoke at length about topics ranging from John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the 2020 election, critical race theory, anti-vaccine sentiments, Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War,’ the Rothschild and Bilderberg families, Chinese government surveillance and Tesla coils, which he said were a source of ‘infinite free clean energy’ that could control the weather and lead to ‘the next stage of evolution.'”

And then there was the delusional comparison of himself to Jesus, Gandhi, and MLK:

“This is what every single great leader, what every pioneer of sorts, has had to go through. When you challenge a system that is so heavily corrupt, when you speak truth to power, what it does is it sends ripples throughout the world. This is part of the reason why, while I’m upset about what happened to me … at the same time, I’m doing all I can to be strong and courageous and wear the full armor of God.”

What exactly does Angeli see as his place in the world? He explained:

“I am whatever the country needs me to be. That’s part of the role of the Shaman — to be the one that fights the spiritual war for the people, to be the one that shows the people the flaws within its system, within its culture, and helps them to repair those flaws.”

When the interview was concluded, Oltmann heaped praise on Angeli, telling his listeners:

“It’s great to have this conversation, and break the barriers of what they’ve been saying about him. He’s not crazy. He is a patriot.”

He’s not crazy? Then that means he knew what he was doing when he showed up at the Capitol in January and stormed the building. Angeli got what he deserved, and he’s only a hero to those who consider violence to be the answer when you lose an election.
