News, David DePape’s dark journey from Obama backer to QAnon extremist accused in Pelosi attack : detailed suggestions and opinions about David DePape’s dark journey from Obama backer to QAnon extremist accused in Pelosi attack .
To co-workers who knew David DePape a few years ago, he was a gentle, quiet carpenter who liked to watch the “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things” series and brought sunflower seeds to his worksite to feed birds and squirrels.
“Everybody liked him,” said Frank Ciccarelli, 76, a carpenter who employed DePape in the Bay Area.
But when DePape began talking about politics, his outlook grew darker, they said.
“It was right-wing, all the way down the line,” Ciccarelli said. “He thought climate change was a hoax and Hillary Clinton is running a pedophile ring out of a pizza parlor. It was so ridiculous that it was hard to take seriously.”
