*I’d like to point out that this original post was published in June 2014; loooong before all of the excitement over Sony hackers and other buggery
The film, The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco is splattered all over the news at the moment because North Korea is offended by the plot line which includes the assassination of their leader, Kim Jong-un:
Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
Of course, you can see the low lying fruit here would be to go in on the history of the CIA involvement in various conspiracies such as the mind control experiments known as MKULTRA, or even Operation Mockingbird that they used to sway popular opinion on communism through media and television programming; but I’ll choose another path.
To me, it seems, that this could be an orchestrated event (aka PsyOp) to drum up interest in the film (although it’d have to be pretty elaborate). Of course, how much interest do you really need to drum up when you’ve got James Franco and Seth Rogen together; but still. I’m just postulating because that’s what I like to do and it seems that nobody else is exploring this angle yet.
North Korea has been voicing their opinion, going as far as to threaten the US. Here’s CNN:
“The enemies have gone beyond the tolerance limit in their despicable moves to dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership,” a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman told the country’s state-run news agency Wednesday.
But the North Korean government showed little sign of favor toward the film on Wednesday, accusing the United States of “bribing a rogue movie maker” to produce it.
And it warned that Franco and Rogen’s comedy, which it said had touched off “the towering hatred and wrath of the service personnel and people of the DPRK,” would have consequences.
“Those who defamed our supreme leadership and committed the hostile acts against the DPRK can never escape the stern punishment to be meted out according to a law wherever they might be in the world,” the foreign ministry spokesman said.
“If the U.S. administration connives at and patronizes the screening of the film, it will invite a strong and merciless countermeasure.”
The North Koreans have even test fired some rockets into the Sea of Japan, just one day after their outrage over the film, arguably a show of aggression. I question the timing of all of this publicity in the last couple of years, given that Dennis Rodman seemed to take some kind of ambassador slot to the rogue state. Rodman has been accused of having Illuminati tendencies, given that he has nose rings like a bull (claiming he’s the bull deity Moloch), and was even on the cover of Rolling Stone with Moloch/Devil horns:
It doesn’t help matters that he was also a Chicago Bull (more horn symbolism):
If you’re new to this idea of Moloch symbolism in pop culture, check out the post on Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: Moloch, owls, and the Horns of Satan for more:
…and an All Seeing Eye tattoo on his hand (see Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: The All Seeing Eye and the 666 Hand Gesture for more):
He’s also played in exactly 911 games (more occult symbolism). Here’s the wiki screenshot if you don’t believe me:
And not to mention the endless amount of occult symbolism we find from Mr. Franco. Feel free to peruse through the articles, and be sure to check out his Illuminati symbolism in the music video for Love in the Old Days where you can see his six degrees of separation from Charles Manson:
You’ll also see on that post how he got into a live performance of a ritual with Kenneth Anger and Noot Seear from those dreaded Twilight films:
In conjunction with the current exhibition For the Martian Chronicles, L&M Arts is pleased to present The Bartzabel Working, a performance by filmmaker and artist Brian Butler. Based on a ceremonial evocation of the spirit of Mars, first written and performed in London in 1910 by the famed British occultist Aleister Crowley, the ritual later became part of Los Angeles history in 1946 when Jet Propulsion Laboratory rocket scientist and Crowley protégé Jack Parsons conducted his own version of this rite, with the intention of placing a martial curse on a pre-Scientology L. Ron Hubbard.
For his reinterpretation of this historical performance, Butler will conjure Bartzabel, the spirit of Mars, evoking the site that was once home to the late sci-fi author Ray Bradbury and currently comprises L&M Arts. The ritual will have Butler as Chief Magus, leading a cast drawn from his upcoming feature film King Death and featuring Henry Hopper as Assistant Magus, Noot Seear as Magus Adjuvant, and James Franco as Material Basis, the vessel though which the spirit of Mars manifests.
Ok, I’m really getting off track here, but yea, there’s been a lot of pop culture exposure to North Korea lately, and now we’ve got this disapproval/threat about the film.
So let’s take a look at the film poster:
Seems fairly innocuous right? Well, here’s where I question my sanity and wonder if I’ve been researching conspiracies for just a little bit too long now. When I look at this poster I see a Baphomet hidden in there. Follow my logic for a second here as I show you a breakdown of how I claim this.
Here are the two together, side by side:
And here’s just the zoom in on the Baphomet; the occult symbol of choice:
Now look at the poster again with my writing showing where I see the aspects of the Baphomet:
And the overlay:
I know it’s not exact but you can see it can’t you? Or am I legit crazy now? Feel free to comment below and tell me to kill myself, I really enjoy those! lol
POST-FILM UPDATE: Since the film’s release there has been a lot of activity- including the alleged North Korean hacking of Sony’s emails and databases. The claim is that North Korea threatened to blow up theaters that played The Interview, so Sony changed their release schedule such that it would go online in ON DEMAND formats.
What’s strange is that the CIA allegedly were involved with the filming of this (as Freeman and Jamie Hanshaw reported in their Celebrity Mind Control-pop culture-Illuminati episode). What’s stranger is the predictive programming of the Sony hacking and the film industry. There is a film called Blackhat that features a VERY similar plot line; check out NYTimes’ description:
At a critical moment in Michael Mann’s cyberthriller, “Blackhat,” a naïve security guard slips a young woman’s thumb drive into his corporate computer.
The camera lingers on the drive’s all-uppercase brand name: SONY. A few covert keystrokes later, the system is penetrated — one hacker, a good guy, is within reach of an illicit fortune stolen by another.
If this is not exactly cinematic art imitating life, the release of “Blackhat” by Universal Pictures next month will at least show spooky synchronicity with the very real hacking attack on Universal’s crosstown competitor, Sony Pictures. Set to open on Jan. 16, Mr. Mann’s movie is one of the most authentic film treatments of malicious hacking in memory — and it has been given added cultural urgency by inadvertently crossing paths with the Sony assault.
In the film, about half way in, there is a scene where you see Franco doing the Mano Cornuto horns several times, so maybe the horned deity stuff isn’t so far fetched:
Because this isn’t the first time he’s done it…
Freeman Fly and Jamie Hanshaw talked about the overabundance of homosexual references in the film, and its occult significance since occultist magick practitioners like Aleister Crowley used homosexuality as a tool of energy during rituals. You’ll also see secret societies like Skull & Bones allegedly forcing their members to conduct homosexual orgies in order to blackmail them so they don’t release the Order’s secrets.
Seth Rogen has also been all over the media since the film’s release. He’s been demonized for his misinterpreted tweet about the American Sniper film, which begs the question of what he did to piss the ‘pop culture gods’ off so much. This also includes an interview in Rolling Stone in which we see the familiar symbolism of the All Seeing Eye:
You’ll also notice they are saying Seth Rogen is at “the crossroads.” This could mean a quite sinister reference to making a Faustian deal with the Devil. I covered this in further detail in my hip hop conspiracy book SACRIFICE: MAGIC BEHIND THE MIC:
The term “Crossroads” is of great importance here because it appears so often. For example, Britney Spears had a film called Crossroads in 2002 and she found herself in Eric Clapton’s Crossroads rehab center some years later. There’s also a 1936 blues song by Robert Johnson called Crossroads (or Cross Road Blues) where he talks about selling his soul to the devil in exchange for his musical abilities, and the Faustian bargain myth was depicted in the 1986 film Crossroads. Rap group Bone Thugs ‘n’ Harmony released a song dedicated to Eazy-E in 1996 called Tha Crossroads that stars a grim reaper marking people for death and was featured on the album E. 1999 Eternal that had songs like Mr. Ouija 2 that asks the Ouija board if the rappers will die of murder. Additionally, Freeman asserts that Britney chose the salon called Esther’s because Esther is another name for the Illuminati-Babylonian Goddess Ishtar. It was also chosen by Madonna as an alter ego for her Kabbalah personality, Esther Madge.
