If you think the right wing outrage over Beyonce lip synching the national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration was amusing, wait till you hear the right wing outrage over her Super Bowl halftime show (and last year’s Madonna performance too): The Illuminati is using subliminal symbolism to prop up the New World Order. Or something.
Elect a New Congress, a super PAC devoted to “restoring liberty” in Congress, is referring to a conspiracy theory about a secret and ancient group of rich and powerful people who once controlled every aspect of society. Some believe the Illuminati still exist, and that it was on display in Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show last year, when the pop icon wore an Egyptian headdress and was surrounded by male dancers who formed a pyramid—part of Illuminati symbolism.
Bill Fawell, the founder and president of Elect a New Congress, is among those who believe Madonna’s performance had a hidden agenda. And he tells Whispers that he fears Beyonce’s halftime show this year will be worse…
“If you look at some of Beyonce’s performances… it’s like the military industrial police state,” Fawell tells Whispers, noting that the pop star has previously performed surrounded by male dancers in protective helmets. “That’s the subliminal message that will be spreading worldwide because everyone watches the Super Bowl.”
