Jake Angeli (33) aka “Q Shaman” is in jail after the Capitol storm. On Saturday morning (local time) after his return from Washington, he presented himself in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Since then, the man who stormed the heart of US democracy with a horned fur hat, bare torso, war paint and spear disguised as a US flag has been in custody.
Now his mother, Martha Chansley, declares in court: Your son has been on a hunger strike since he was imprisoned. Not because Jacob Anthony Angeli Chansley, as his real name is, wants to make a political statement with it – but because he strictly and exclusively eats organic food. And these are not served to the Capitol striker in jail.
“He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food”
But Jake Angeli’s physical well-being should now be taken care of. His public defender said he was not sure if Angeli only eats organic products for religious or health reasons. The judge called the hunger strike “deeply worrying” and ordered that work be done on Angeli’s nutritional problems.
According to «The Arizona Republic» His mother told reporters outside the courthouse that her son needed the organic diet. “He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food.” Jake Angeli himself was not allowed to appear in court in person.

“Q Shaman” is accused of this
He was only hooked up by phone because he is in the prison’s quarantine unit after storming through the Capitol with hundreds during the pandemic. So far he has not made any statements and only answered routine questions from the judge. He was charged with disorderly conduct, forced entry and illegal stay on the Capitol grounds. The trial continues, the punishment is still unclear.
Jake Angeli has already drawn attention to right-wing extremist demonstrations. Since 2019 he has been standing regularly in front of the Capitol in Arizona to spread his crude theories. He knows the truth because he sees himself as a shaman with supernatural powers. Angeli is an ardent supporter of the right wing conspiracy sect QAnon. Conspiracy theorists believe, among other things, that the world is ruled by a secret elite. (euc)
