Peace Teas are great; they’re cheap, relatively low calories (they use sucralose which is a slightly better option than Donald Rumsfeld’s aspartame), have a good message, and they taste good.
For years I’ve been drinking them without scratching the surface on any potential conspiracy theory behind the product, because hey, why would there be one?
Well, I’m here to be a dick and suggest there might be a conspiracy behind it. Let’s take a look…
First off, let’s give them a chance and see what the ‘official’ story is about Peace Tea, directly from their website:
Peace Tea is a connector of people, places and action to inspire, encourage and promote PEACE.
We created Peace Tea as a product with a purpose. Its purpose is to shift the awareness of Peace Tea drinkers to a level of consciousness that emanates peace, love for one another, and action through the simple idea that the product invokes and radiates peace.
Just as the peace symbol, designed by Gerald Holtom in 1958 for the British nuclear disarmament movement, came to universally represent peace through its pacifying symbolic nature, Peace Tea strives to do the same. The peace sign has never been restricted or patented. It was first embraced by the anti-war movement in the early 60s when thousands of buttons boasting the peace sign were sold on college campuses across America. By the end of the tumultuous decade, the peace sign’s essence evolved into a generic nature, symbolizing peace across geographic and cultural boundaries around the world.
Peace is a deep understanding of oneself and others where mutual respect gives way to tolerance, the acceptance of differences and the eradication of tension. Peace Tea was created to invoke this type of action. It was born from the true meaning of peace.
Peace Tea encourages all to engage in random acts of kindness, like buying a meal for a homeless person or helping the elderly cross a busy boulevard. Peace Tea Beverage Co supports local and national nonprofit organizations and is committed to continuously extending and expanding our support to those who are in need, in an effort to be the change we want to see in the world.
To achieve a peaceful state of mind, we must reflect on peace, then take action to achieve peace within humanity.
Our minds react to what our bodies take in. When we feed our body, we feed our soul. Let Peace Tea be the fuel that rallies the peace within you.
Did you catch that phrase that I put in bold?
Our minds react to what our bodies take in.
Indeed, they understand the importance of symbolism. Just because you can see the imagery for what it is doesn’t mean that the subconscious doesn’t take it all in and take its effect on you.
It should also be pointed out that Peace Tea is owned by none other than Monster Beverage Company.
I’ve pointed out before (thanks to other conspiracy theorists like Freeman Fly) that it’s the ‘666’ drink because the Hebrew letter Vav corresponds to 6, which Hebrew gematria or numerology will lead you to Vav-Vav-Vav=6-6-6.
It is also believed that the meaning of Vav in Kabbalism is equivalent to “nail”, which not only references the nails that held Jesus to the cross, but also a belief that “nail” is a secret name for Satan.
Check out Freeman’s presentation on this hidden symbol (around 7:40):
The name of the company “Monster” should tell you that they might not be all about peace and happiness. We can infer that the monster is the beast, and the beast is the marking all of us through the use of energy drinks and “harmless” tea.
‘Hot Rod’ was able to spot the symbol of the ‘Red Dragons’ on the Monster energy drink- take a look at the ‘O’ on Monster:
It is identical to the symbol for Red Dragons (as popularized by Jason Ellis):
Those of you that read my beginner’s guide to conspiracies- A GRAND UNIFIED CONSPIRACY THEORY: THE ILLUMINATI, ANCIENT ALIENS, AND POP CULTURE already know the script on how the red dragon symbolizes Satan…
In fact, you can find the ‘666’ Monster logo hidden on each can’s design if you look for it. I’ll give you an example; this one is from the Razzleberry flavor. Check out the dog’s neck on the right side…
This particular flavor also features the occult symbolism of Washington DC with the phallic obelisk and Capitoline Hill, which I’ve pointed out in the Illuminati & Freemasonry Symbolism in the Transformers Films post:
And finally, we have the importance of Washington D.C. in the film, which is a city built up by the Freemasons. You can see the occult symbols of the obelisk Washington monument and Captiol Hill.
This is also known as Capitoline Hill; the Roman occult location that was for the Temple of Jupiter based on the finding of a skull while digging. Hence the name Capitoline which comes from the Latin ‘Caput’ meaning “death.” Skulls leads us back into Freemasonry; again.
The artwork on the cans come from the mind of John Malloy, and I dug through his website a bit and found this disturbing image which shows us a bound up girl and the All Seeing Eye:
And another one:
Here is one of the images I found while thumbing through artwork on the actual Peace Tea website; notice the All Seeing Eye watching us:
Getting back to the theory at hand, the symbol used for peace has various theorized origins. The official story for the Peace/CND symbol is as follows:
One of the most widely known symbols in the world, in Britain it is recognised as standing for nuclear disarmament – and in particular as the logo of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). In the United States and much of the rest of the world it is known more broadly as the peace symbol.
It was designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom, a professional designer and artist and a graduate of the Royal College of Arts. He showed his preliminary sketches to a small group of people in the Peace News office in North London and to the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War, one of several smaller organisations that came together to set up CND.
That same link actually covers the “misrepresentation and misuse” of the symbol (which is what I’m about to go into…):
There have been claims that the symbol has older, occult or anti-Christian associations. In South Africa, under the apartheid regime, there was an official attempt to ban it. Various far-right and fundamentalist American groups have also spread the idea of Satanic associations or condemned it as a Communist sign. However the origins and the ideas behind the symbol have been clearly described, both in letters and in interviews, by Gerald Holtom. His original, first sketches are now on display as part of the Commonweal Collection in Bradford.
On the Biblical based website GotQuestions, there is further detailing of what basis there is for these sinister theories behind Gerald Holtom’s Peace/CND symbol:
The downward V has been linked to the mystic character for ”Aum,” a sacred word to the Hindu. Saying “Aum” over and over supposedly awakens the power of Brahma at the base of the spine. Germanic tribes that used it claimed the sign, or “rune,” to have eerie, mystical properties. It is said that it was used by sorcerers in pagan ceremonies.
The Saracens in A.D. 711 used this symbol to alternately represent a broken cross, a raven’s claw, or a witch’s foot, all presumably satanic symbols. Under the reign of Roman Emperor Nero, infamous for his brutal persecution of Christians and Jews, this symbol was prominently used to represent a broken cross or broken Jew.
Nero crucified the Apostle Peter upside down, and the horrific event resembled the downward-pointing fork. It was thereafter called the Neronic cross.
With the Third Reich steeped in the occult, Hitler’s 3rd Panzer Division used this same symbol from 1941 to 1945. The symbol in Germany is called atodesruneor death rune. It often appeared on death notices. It is also found on some of the tombstones of the notorious SS soldiers.
For Bertrand Russell, a supporter of communism, the symbol meant not only communism but also peace without God. Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, used the downward-pointing fork as the background for his altar. The Book of Signs, written by Rudolph Koch, indicates that the downward-pointing fork means “the death of man,” and, with the circle around it meaning “total,” the entire symbol means “the total death of all people.”
Holtom never professed to have any knowledge of any historical use of this symbol. However, it is certain that Bertrand Russell was well aware of the satanic and anti-Christian roots of the symbol. He chose it accordingly.
Texe Marrs details what he theorizes as the true origins of this sign, and calls it Nero’s Cross, or the broken cross in Chapter 25: Victory for the Devil. He covers different aspects of the hand held peace symbol, including the claim that the thumb holding the pinky and ring finger represent the vulva and the two upright fingers represent the horns of the devil; effectively making a symbol for intercourse with Satan.
The sign is also described by Dr. Cathy Burns as a symbol for the esoteric concept of duality and opposites in Freemasonry, with order out of chaos and Satan reigning over heaven and hell with the androgynous Bapohmet.
Texe also goes in on Winston Churchill’s use of the ‘V’ sign and how he has all sorts of ties with being a Freemason and even a Druid. Here’s a shot of a page that shows some of what I’m talking about:
Now, just to try and be rational with things, there are A LOT of images out there with celebs and politicians making the peace ‘V’ hand sign. That doesn’t make all of them Illuminati Satan worshippers.
There are, however, a few images that stand out as oddities, including George Bush on the cover of Texas Monthly making a peace sign, with no apparent explanation inside for why he’s doing it (besides when did the Bushes become synonymous with peace?…):
And why is Ringo Starr doing it with two hands and looking weird:
In the latest edition of Rolling Stone (*from June 2014) Adam Levine from Maroon 5 reveals the name of their upcoming album as “V”. The interviewer asks how it’s pronounced (is it “V” or “5”?) and he says it’s “basically subjective to the listener.”
He’s also on the TV show The Voice that features the same symbolism:
If you look at Adam Levine’s Kmart clothing line, you’ll see a little bit of everything on there: the 666 All Seeing Eye, triangle of manifestation, Moloch horns, etc.:
In fact, Ceelo Green was wearing a black magic cape during the infamous Madonna Super Bowl Halftime show ritual:
If you really want to peer down into the abyss, you’ve got to read my article on the Illuminati Mark of the Beast: “X” where you’ll see how the ‘V’ plays into this whole demonic scheme.
Some may ask what the purpose or harm there is in this symbolism. If you take a step back and look at all of the symbols being placed around us, you can see we’re effectively being surrounded by them. If they are being used for evil, then we are effectively being surrounded by evil.
The more you open yourself up to the idea that the evil forces of the spiritual world are trying to take over to win our souls, you can clearly see how it is they are doing it. They aren’t trying to get you and I to worship Satan overtly. Instead, they are nudging us down that path by cutting us off from God.
They are placing the symbols around us to make us forget about God and the positive side to this spiritual world. Negativity and darkness is infiltrating our reality from all angles and we are letting it happen when we scoff at conspiracy theories or the idea that maybe Monster energy drinks are truly evil.
