There are many actors who are rather smart--Merrill Streep, Emma Thompson. David Niven was a good writer, and a witty man...Hell, Hedy Lamarr was an inventor, and a good one. Brilliant woman. But then there are some actors who are damned fools. Quite a few of of 'em. Like: 'Actor Jim Caviezel, who used to be famous for starring in movies like "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Passion of the Christ," joined an all-star lineup of far-right conspiracy theorists at a COVID-19 conspiracy "health and freedom" conference in Oklahoma on Friday night. And Caviezel spent at least part of his segment endorsing the false QAnon conspiracy theory regarding "the adrenochroming of children."
'This made-up theory states that rich people torture children so they can harvest their adrenaline, which the theory says has some unspecified rejuvenation properties. This nonsense, which is more or less just the plot of Pixar's "Monsters, Inc." has been at the bedrock of the QAnon "SaveTheChildren" movement, which is more concerned with fake stories like this than with actually saving children who are the victims of human trafficking.
'Caviezel joined quite the roster of right-wing conspiracy fans at the conference, which included names like Michael Flynn, Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and the My Pillow Guy, Mike Lindell, among many other far-right figures.'
