Last month we looked at the very real cults in which Ella Gareeva Draper, mother of RD’s children, has been involved. We discussed her participation in the Russian “gold-digger academies”, as well as her devotion to Ching Hai, a Vietnamese woman who calls herself “Supreme Master” and runs a number of successful and lucrative businesses, including a chain of vegan restaurants called “Loving Hut”.
Supreme Master also runs an online video channel promoting veganism, vegvids.com. Vegvids offers a number of videos for children, with catchy titles like “Why Eggs Are GROSS!”, “Do Fish Have Feelings?”, and “Five Reasons We Don’t Eat Meat!”
Vegvids doesn’t just run children’s videos, however. A video called “Meet Your Meat: The Barbarity of Halal Slaughter“, illustrates in gory detail exactly how animals are slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law.
The animal must be alive and healthy; a Muslim must perform the slaughter in the appropriate ritual manner; and the animal’s throat must be cut by a sharp knife, severing the carotid artery, jugular vein and windpipe in one swipe. The animal is hung upside down from a hook, as all blood must be drained from the carcass.
Perhaps you can see where we’re going with this.
This process is identical to the one which RD’s children described in the videos made en route from Morocco:
P: He tells us to hold the hand with a knife, and then he holds his hand on our hand. So then he cuts the baby’s head off. And he tips it upside down, and then we drain the blood.
While the children claimed during their retraction videos with the police that the film “Mask of Zorro” had inspired them to tell the story of the babies’ heads being cut off, those who believe in the Hampstead SRA hoax have pointed out that the film contains no scenes of people being suspended and drained of their blood.
However, given their mother’s devotion to Ching Hai—Ella’s walls were plastered with posters depicting Supreme Master, and the children talked about being vegan and meditating for three hours per day, as prescribed by the cult—it seems quite likely that the children would have been exposed to the Vegvids video collection.
Certainly the images of animal slaughter we watched are unforgettable, even for adults. We can only imagine the effect this sort of video might have on a child. The image of an animal suspended upside down, head nearly severed and blood draining into a bowl, would definitely make an impression.
Obviously we don’t know for certain that RD’s children were exposed to this video when they were in Ella’s care. However, it’s very likely that their mother’s adherence to a cult which focuses on encouraging veganism via horror scenes would have meant that the children were all too familiar with images of animal slaughter.
It’s a minor point, perhaps, but one which could help explain what really happened.
