Jokes aside, there is quite a bit of crossover between QAnon and Scientology - 2021-03-29
Before last night's two new episodes of HBO's series on the QAnon phenomenon, Q: Into the Storm, some of the QAnon-debunking journalists who are featured in the series told their readers to prepare for the new episodes by checking out the trailer for a 12-minute film about illustrator David Dees that premiered recently at the Miami Film Festival.
We're not entirely sure why they recommended this. There wasn't a focus on Dees in the new episodes. But there's no doubt that illustrations by Dees have provided many of the visuals for the Internet's conspiracy-obsessed corners, and were the product of a troubled, anti-Semitic mind.
Who was David Dees? What gets the most attention is that at one time he was a freelance illustrator for a former Sesame Street magazine who became consumed with paranoid ideas and created vivid images about practically every crackpot notion that gets spread around on right-wing social media, from chemtrails to flat Earth. Dees died of cancer last year after refusing to get conventional medical care for his melanoma. He was 62.
