Angeli received significant mainstream and social media attention after multiple photographs of him in the Capitol building during the 2021 "Save America" Rally in D.C.

Online History

Ties To Star Seed Academy

Sometime in 2019, Angeli started the Star Seed Academy,[22] a religious organization with the main objective of helping people "increase their IQ's, ESP, expand their consciousness, improve their quality of life, extend their life expectancy, and educate them on the most important information" (screenshot shown below). The website allows users to buy a monthly membership to the academy and its resources for $111.11 per month, or $777.77 for a lifetime membership.


On June 18th, 2020, Angeli published[25] a book titled "One Mind At A Time: A Deep State of Illusion" meant to expose the "deep state." On August 6th, Soul Freedom posted an interview with Angeli to YouTube,[23] in which he describes his ties to Qanon and Star Seed Academy (shown below, left). Soul Freedom posted[24] another video with Angeli on October 8th (shown below, right). Throughout the video, Angeli interacts with a number of what appears to be Star Seed members. At around 2:21:58 in the video, a member of the stream named "Traveler 0001" performs some sort of spiritual ritual.

May 5th Interview With Angeli

On May 5th, 2020, BrieAnna J. Frank posted a video to Twitter[1] of Angeli beating a drum, yelling thanks to Trump and "Q" after she and a number of journalists were allegedly harassed by him and a group of Trump supporters for wearing masks. Shortly after, she posted an interview with Angeli (shown below).

2021 "Save America" Rally D.C. Protest

On Jaunary 6th, 2021, the "Save America" rally took place in D.C. Following a speech from Donald Trump, supporters headed to the Capitol Building to march on Congress, making their way inside the Capitol. Angeli was present at the protest wearing no shirt, a horned fur viking hat, red, white, and blue face paint, and carrying an American flag. He appeared in many viral photographs taken at the event. For example, he appeared in a photograph posted by Igor Bobic[11] as the protestors first made their way into the Capitol (shown below).


Later that day, Steven Nelson posted a photo of Angeli posing for photographs behind the desk in the Senate, garnering over 23,000 likes and 12,000 retweets in 23 hours (shown below, left). Yousef Munayyer tweeted[] an image of Angeli in the Capitol surrounded by other protestors, criticizing the government's defense of the Capitol, garnering over 298,000 likes in 13 hours (shown below, right).

Angeli is known for being an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump and Qanon, and is considered a member of the far-right. He is viewed as a sort of hero in Qanon circles, often referred to as the "Q Shaman." This has gained him both a positive reputation in far-right circles, and a negative reputation to those on the left.


Following the "Save America" rally, many on the left negatively criticized Angeli's role in the event, with some even calling for his arrest.[2][3]

On January 7th, Kim Kelly tweeted[11] making note of Angeli's tattoos, insinuating they may further support the argument that he is a fascist (shown below).

Antifa Agent Conspiracy Theory

Shortly after the media began reporting on Angeli, a conspiracy theory arose that he and others at the protest may have actually belonged to Antifa rather than Qanon, and was sent to the Capitol to make the right look bad. This, however, is highly up for debate. For example, on January 7th, 2021, Mogan Dane tweeted[12] insinuating Angeli is an actor and knows Nancy Pelosi (shown below, left). In contrast, Molly Ball tweeted[13] against the theory, pointing out how Trump praised them afterward, garnering over 250,000 likes and 55,000 retweets in less than a day (shown below, right).

You CANT MAKE THIS UP! | Molly Ball O @mollyesque 000 The amazing thing about "it might have been antifa" is that Trump literally summoned these people to DC, spoke at their event, offered to walk them over to the Capitol and then praised them afterward.
