Pro-Trump Actor Jim Caviezel Channels 'Braveheart' In Bonkers Speech At QAnon Conference

Pro-Trump actor Jim Caviezel raised eyebrows with a speech he delivered at a recent QAnon-aligned conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Quoting the Mel Gibson film Braveheart, Caviezel—who starred in Gibson's controversial film The Passion of the Christ as well as the CBS series Person of Interest—ranted about good and evil in a speech that lapsed heavily into Christian extremism as well as QAnon propaganda.

A clip uploaded to Twitter went viral.

See it below.

The conference—called the "For God & Country: Patriot Double Down"—is so explicitly linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory it was dropped by the convention center at Caesar's Palace earlier in the year.

In his speech, Caviezel used a Braveheart monologue to call upon attendees to be willing to literally die for the QAnon crowd's definition of "freedom."

"Fight, and you may die. Run, and you'll live—at least a while."
"And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you have been willin' to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that you can take our lives, but you can never take our freedom!"

"Freedom" in this case refers to refusing vaccinations and fighting to overturn the 2020 election, which attendees believe was stolen from former Republican President Donald Trump.

Having finished his Mel Gibson impression, Caviezel moved on to Christian extremism, telling attendees:

"By God, we must live and with the Holy Spirit as your shield and Christ as your sword may you join Saint Michael and all the other angels in defending God and sending Lucifer and his henchmen straight back to hell where they belong."

Next, Caviezel began talking about "The Storm," the event QAnon-ers believe is imminent in which Donald Trump will expose and arrest the cabal of Satan-worshipping, baby-eating pedophiles that run the world, which includes everyone from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to Madonna and Tom Hanks.

On Twitter, people were creeped out by Caviezel's rant, including some of his Hollywood colleagues.
















Though some couldn't help but make a joke or two.





This isn't the first time Caviezel has creeped people out with his devotion to QAnon's rhetoric.

In April, he claimed to have inside knowledge about "adrenochrome," a chemical which QAnon adherents claim elites extract from tortured children for use in Satanic rituals and anti-aging treatments.

The claim is baseless and has roots in anti-Semitic "blood libel" hoaxes that date back to the medieval period.
