News of an Oath Keeper’s J6 “death list” made me think about whether Johnny Depp or other celebrities keep death lists much like the Dead Pool or “rule of three” that emerges when a celebrity dies. Trumpist culture is the kind that actually keeps such lists, much like hypothesizing that Trump keeps such a list, or has flushed several down a toilet. Such pathological signs of obsession, much like watching the Depp-Heard trial on TV, or the mourning for the UK monarchy.
Recent court documents allege the names of Ruby Freeman and Wandrea “Shaye” Moss were written on a pad of paper labeled “death list” found by police in the home of suspected Oath Keeper Thomas Caldwell, Salon reports. Earlier this month, prosecutors revealed the existence of the “death list” but did not name the workers. Caldwells is charged with serious conspiracy.
Here is DeathList 2022. This is a list of 50 celebrities chosen by the DeathList committee, before the start of the year, for the fact they may die in 2022. The concise summary of the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is confidently expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die imminently and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list. After the record-breaking year of 2020, DeathList 2021 was a bit of a let-down with only 12 deaths, well short of the record of 20.
