Guilty, But Not a Q-Spiracist No More

The Stupid Coup

The Q-Anon Shaman is gonna plead guilty:

The bare-chested man pictured with his face painted, wearing a horned helmet and howling in the Senate chamber during the insurrection on January 6th is expected to plead guilty Friday in federal court to charges stemming from his participation at the riot, according to a court filing.

Jacob Chansley, aka the “QAnon Shaman,” was charged with a six-count indictment that includes civil disorder, violent entry and disorderly conduct, as well as a felony count for obstruction of an official proceeding, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. The details of Chansley’s plea agreement with the government, including which specific charges he is pleading guilty to, have not yet been made public.

Says his lawyer:

In a statement, Chansley’s attorney, Albert Watkins, said his client no longer wants to be associated with the conspiracy theory QAnon: “Mr. Chansley, a long avowed and practicing Shaman, has repudiated the ‘Q’ previously assigned to him and requests future references to him be devoid of use of the letter ‘Q’.”

“He may be an unstable and guilty insurrectionist nutcase, but he’s not THAT nuts,” Watkins did not say. “I mean, that’s Marjorie Taylor Greene territory, come-on!”

    You know what the old Shamans say:

    “When the going gets tough, we fold like a cheap tRump(tm) branded card table”.

    Words to cringe behind your mom (and her delicious arugula) by.

    This sad sack of shit deserves an extra year in jail just for showing up in that outlandish “outfit.” FFS, he has forever sullied the Capitol with his “can’t unsee that” attire.

    His atty’s comments were priceless. I just can’t, for the life of me, imagine myself saying about a client: He is “a long avowed and practicing Shaman, [and] has repudiated the ‘Q’ previously assigned to him and requests future references to him be devoid of use of the letter ‘Q’.” What a Dadaesque moment in any legal career, a real capstone to “a life in the law.”

    Bullshit. His lawyer told him about the possible reduction in his sentence for Acceptance of Responsibility.

    I predict 20 years from now he will, for a small fee, pose for photos with tourists (actual tourists) in front of the capitol dressed in his Q-shaman outfit, with perhaps a shaman belly hanging over the pants waist.

    “Mr. Chansley, a long avowed and practicing Shaman…” So, in other words, he’s still a Shaman, just not THAT Shaman. OH, I get it now, he’s just changed his Shamanhood. Just like Priests can change from being, let us say, a Catholic to a Seventh day Adventist. Or, hell, maybe a Shaman of the Sun and Moon, or a Moonie Shaman. A Shaman of Scientology…or just a Rehab’d Shaman of the of the Q and now a Shaman of the Waste Disposal, now that’s a Shaman worth having.
