Dim Mak part of the Illuminati?

Tim Gauthier

We stumbled upon this hilarious(but awesome) post on the Vigilant Citizen Message Boards.
 
Why don’t you give it a read and tell Dee(writer of the post) what you think about it. 🙂

 

 
 
Has anybody else noticed shady symbolism in dance/house music clips?
It appears nothing is sacred and that the Illuminati is controlling every possible genre in order to reach out to every single demographic and person.
Is this chick insane, you ask? I thought I was going mad too and reading way too far into things, but I thought to myself: What is with Calvin Harris’ obsession with luminous glasses? Why does Steve Aoki have a fixation with masonic images? Why does the Mustard Pimp-Money Shot single cover have a picture of Baphomet on a one dollar bill (which of course is riddled with masonic images). Too much to be a coincedence.
One video clip that set me off was Turbulence-Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke and Lil John. Steve Aoki, founder of Dim Mak Records (Dim Mak=Death Touch. Coincedence?) is renowned for making tunes with a liquid, brain numbing bass. Seems like the beat isn’t the only thing brain numbing in his music, and you only have to watch his video clips for a few seconds to know what I mean.The images are clear. Pyramids, hypnotising goggles, you name it. Lil Jon wearing gold fangs (The beast?), being struck by lightning(electro shock therapy) and then being being drenched in rain (rainman)

Watch it for yourself:

Another Steve Aoki tune, “I’m In The House” feat. Zuper Blahq (AKA the alter ego of B.E.P Will I Am) follows pretty much the same formula, using constant images of hypnotism, glasses, checkerboard patterns, gas mask (apocalypse?). The clip is directed by Jam Sutton, a famous photographer who collabs with all the big names, including NERD and Natalia Kills (Both Masonic artists. Yep. Another coincedence).
I had a look at his website and it isnt hard to see that he too, uses the masonic theme all through his work!

I implore you to have a look at James Suttons work, it speaks for itself.

Mustard Pimp/Jimmy Urine-Money Shot:
This one’s a doozy. Its all there. Baphomet. One dollar bills. George Washington falling down a grave into Hell.VERY obvious pyramids,skulls, pentagrams, Marching Freemason ruler/compass symbols, all seeing eyes and masonic/satanic images EVERYWHERE.The title Money Shot suggests ejaculating into a persons mouth=pornographic. It is CRAZY AMAZING just how obvious and in-your-face the imagery is in this clip. It may be good to note that Mustard Pimp is a Dim Mak artist. (Remember what I said before about Steve Aoki?)

Deftons Ft Mustard Pimp-You’ve Seen The Butcher:
All Seeing Eyes. A library (knowledge, one of the freemason values). It seems to be some sort of ritual/blood sacrifice, and the girls dancing in the blood seem to be getting off from being drenched in blood.

OTHER MASONIC HOUSE/DANCE MUSIC GROUPS:

The Freemasons (Duh.)

Notice the Checkerboard floor,and the singer is the only one dressed in black.

LCD Soundsystem-
The Vigilant Citizen already did a great expose on LCD Soundsystem

Deadmau5-
Whats with the mouse head? Mickey mouse? Monarch programming?
Image

Bloody Beetroots-

The labeled themselves Death Crew 77? Why? A Third member joined in 2010. 3? Part of Dim Mak Label=connections with Steve Aoki.

Did you see the skull on the wall at the beginning of the clip? Torture. Black and White.Light at the end of the tunnel=path to illumination?

Skull and Cross bones. Initiating young people into a group.Standing in ranks, slavery, conformity. Violence. Killing the young people? Robotic sounds throughout song.

Have a look for yourselves, tell me what you think.
