Shock Value, or signs of the Illuminati and the ends times: Satanic symbolism in western pop culture
Is the Illuminati real? Is there any truth to the mass hysteria surrounding it or is it just a myth taken out of context, an urban legend meant to keep conspiracy theorists buzzing. If it is indeed real, those that endorse it are becoming increasingly blatant with symbolism. From demonic horse statues, to creepy apocalyptic murals, to ritualistic musical performances, the message is becoming quite clear. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE AWARE!
Like most people, I didn’t really put too much stock in the subject of secret societies and conspiracies, but this all changed after I began to notice the same unmistakable symbols appearing in everything from company logos to children’s cartoons. These symbols are everywhere. Most have probably seen them and weren’t even aware of them. One of the most blatant displays of these symbols is the music video "Die Young”, by pop artist Ke$ha. The video is littered with "The all seeing eye", and upside down crosses, as well as other symbols commonly associated with satanic culture.
Another example of this is Katy Perry’s Grammy performance with Juicy J from the rap group “Three 6 Mafia”. The performance was a witch themed performance, complete with a crystal ball and a stripper pole designed to look like a witch’s broom. It also included a Knights Templar cross emblazoned across her chest, a beast with Moloch horns, dancers in dark robes with devil horns protruding from their heads, and a dark blue horse similar to the one at Denver International Airport.
At the end of the performance, flames surrounded Perry, invoking the image of a witch being “burned at the stake”. Such hardcore occult symbolism does not get into a mainstream performance by accident. Maybe Perry was serious when she said that she’d sold her soul to the devil during a television interview a few years ago. While I’m on the subject of the Grammys, another thing that I found a bit odd was Jay-z’s acceptance speech:
"I want to thank God, I mean, a little bit for this award, but also all the universe for conspiring and for putting that beautiful light of a young lady in my life," If anyone is familiar with secret societies, they will understand why his words are a bit disconcerting. Especially when one takes into account that the man once went by the moniker “Jay Hova” and is often heard referring to himself as a god. He is also notorious for flashing symbols and wearing clothing emblazoned with quotes associated with Aleister Crowley and Anton LaVey. His wife, the Sasha Fierce possessed Beyonce, is another performer known for incorporating symbols and satanic imagery in her performances. Like Perry, flames surrounded her during her Super Bowl 2013 Half time performance prior to the power going out. Many Christians believe that the things that are going on are signs of the book of Revelation coming to fruition. They believe that the End times are upon us. I for one don’t know what to believe. I just find it odd how things associated with Satan are showing up all over the place. I know some may think this sounds crazy and for those that do, please feel free to check out the pics and videos below.
