This is America folks!
A judge on Wednesday ordered corrections authorities to provide organic food to an Arizona man accused of participating in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol while sporting face paint, no shirt and a furry hat with horns.
The order came after a lawyer for the so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ complained that his client had gone the past nine days without eating because organic food isn’t served at the Washington jail where he’s housed.
At one point, the ‘Shaman’s’ mother went on TV to explain how her son is unable to eat anything, unless it is organic — otherwise he will get a tummy ache.
33-year-old Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, is in the custody of law enforcement following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. He is accused of committing various offenses, including civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, disorderly conduct in a restricted building, and demonstrating in a Capitol building.
Watkins says Chansley has lost 20 pounds since being transferred from Arizona to Washington last week. (Poor baby)
According to court documents and exhibits obtained by FOX 10, Chansley made a written request for organic food on Jan. 27 due to him being a “shamanic practitioner.”
“I only eat traditional food that has been made by God. This means no GMOs, herbicides, pesticides or artificial preservatives or artificial colors,” read a portion of an inmate request slip that was included in court documents. Chansley noted in the same request slip that he has not eaten anything since the morning of Jan. 25.
“Going without food is stressful due to the way it affects my seratonin levels,” read another portion of the request slip. “I don’t mind fasting for a few days, but five days is the longest I have ever gone without food.”
Chansley noted in the request slip that he wants canned organic vegetables, canned wild-caught tuna, or organic canned soup.
A judge has since granted this request.
