An interesting conspiracy theory has emerged about an episode of The Simpsons from Feb. 25th, 2001. It seems to claim that there was some predictive programming in the episode called New Kids on the Bleech in which Simpsons characters start a boy band (that’s another clue something is up since the music industry is involved). There is a part of the episode that has them in a music video dropping bombs on Arabs with a Syrian opposition flag (which is supposedly non-existent in 2001; 10 years before the Syrian Opposition- according to the Egyptian News report video shown below).
That screenshot is from an Egyptian News clip that covers this whole ordeal:
MotherJones had an article about it and adds some commentary:
In the episode, the boys star in a music video for “Drop Da Bomb,” a pop song that seems to encourage heroic bombing of hostile Arab countries. (“Your love’s more deadly than Saddam / That’s why I gotta drop da bomb!“) The chorus of the tune is “Yvan eht Nioj,” which is “Join the Navy” backwards; the Party Posse turns out to be a secret project by the US Navy to boost recruitment numbers through subliminal messages.
Subliminal messages and brainwashing in entertainment is nothing new, and I’d like to add one more peculiarity and that is the subtle name of the band being ‘Party Posse.’ The ‘PP’ is analogous to ‘Predictive Programming.’
In fact, if you watch the full episode you’ll see that around 14:00 in the whole episode is really about brainwashing and secret agendas. Implanting the secret message through entertainers to get the message out to the masses through the only avenue they truly care about (mindless entertainment).
NYTimes did a feature on this one as well, nay saying the claims:
The first flaw in the theory is the fact that the Syrian opposition did not invent a new flag out of whole cloth in 2011, but simply adopted the old green, white and black tricolor used by Syria for most of three decades beginning in 1932. That flag was replaced bya red, white and black tricolor following a military coup in 1963 that eventually brought Mr. Assad’s father to power.
As an Egyptian, Ms. Badawy could perhaps have been confused by the fact that the Syrian government currently uses a flag identical to the one flown from 1958 to 1961, when the nation shared a flag with Egypt as part of the United Arab Republic.
However, this isn’t the first time The Simpsons have been involved with predictive programming…
