There’s been a fair bit of speculation about what, exactly, Abraham Christie and Ella Draper hoped to achieve with their latest rather bizarre video release.
There’s the “riding on the coattails of Pizzagate” theory, which postulates that the fugitive pair decided to cash in on the Washington-based SRA hoax. If this is the case, though, they’re a few months late and several pounds short: interest in Pizzagate peaked a couple of months back, just after the gunman entered the restaurant to find out for himself where the abused children were hidden (answer: nowhere, as there weren’t any). Pizzagate is now mostly picked over by the truly devoted who haven’t yet realised that they were taken in by a bunch of 4Channers…but that’s another story for another day. Another theory, which seems more likely to us, is that Abe and Ella have reached the end of their rope, financially speaking. They made this clear when they set up not one but two fundraising sites, where they perpetuated the same tired old lies, and requested that the few remaining stragglers who still give a rat’s arse about them donate to “help them get the kids back”. Since the children have been permanently removed from Ella’s care, and the police have stated that both Ella and Abe are wanted on charges of child abuse, that seems like a very unlikely outcome, and probably just a proxy for “give us a hand here, we’re starving!”
We know that Ella’s first husband had been providing her with £1,000 per month in support, but it seems very probable that that has been cut off for some time now. What reason would Mr Draper have to continue to support a wife who has virtually no contact with their son, Ella’s oldest child? Particularly when she’s outside the country, and would have to take him to court to have the stipend reinstated.
Yesterday, Abe helped to clarify what the video was really all about: he began plastering the comments section with adverts for…you guessed it. Hemp.
The comments section under Ella’s video now looks like an infomercial for hemp. We kept waiting for Abe to say, “And that’s not all! Order your starter pack of Pure 100% Vegan Magical Hempseed now, and we’ll throw in this amazing vegetable chopper! Our operators are standing by to take your orders! Don’t be left out, quantities are limited! Cure autism, venereal disease, housemaid’s knee, and general lurginess! Order now!”
Of course, it’s not working.
Abe and Ella’s band of useful idiots has been sharing the video on Facebook, and it’s had over 6,500 views on YouTube at last count…but the cash hasn’t materialised. On their Generosity site, they’re looking at a whopping US$180 (less than £150):…while over on Patreon, they’ve netted US$27 (£22) per month. Nice of Kristie Sue Costa to chip in a whole US$50—that’s real dedication for you. Guess she’s too busy chasing down pizza lovers to put her money where her mouth is, Hoaxtead-wise.
As for Abe and Ella, we can’t help thinking that for a grand total of US$207/£169, Ella has once again sold her two youngest children. If this isn’t the final piece of evidence that she shouldn’t have access to them until they are adults, we don’t know what is.
