A libertarian-leaning super PAC that warned America last week to boycott the Super Bowl halftime show because it was the work of the conspiratorial Illuminati cult said after the game on Monday that Beyoncé Knowles' performance confirmed its worst fears.
Bill Fawell, founder of Elect A New Congress, said that although he didn’t watch the show, he was informed that Knowles, known simply as Beyoncé, made a hand gesture associated with the occult organization.
"I understand Beyoncé was making hand symbols of, what else, a pyramid, or triangle if you will, which is a sign of the Illuminati and the New World Order, at the end of the show," Fawell told US News & World Report
in an email Monday. "[Beyoncé] has a long history of serving the godless Illuminati and their Satanic cult."
In the past, the Illuminati were rumored to be an elite organization of influential individuals that masterminded events and took control of world affairs through governments and corporations. Their sign is said to be a pyramid or triangle.
Modern conspiracy theorists argue that today's Illuminati have infiltrated Hollywood, using celebrities' wealth, status, and fame to exert power over the rest of society.
Fawell criticized previous Super Bowl performances featuring rumored Illuminati member Madonna who headlined last year's show.
"Last years [sic] show was a Godless, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Islamic, anti-Buddhist, anti-Hindu, show celebrating the very worst of an immorally tyrannical state," Fawell wrote in a statement to International Business Times. "These shows have been getting worse each year, and we Americans need to come together and send the ruling class a clear message that we've had it up to here with their immoral and criminal acts."
Fawell also referenced a YouTube video posted by self-proclaimed activist Mark Dice, which he felt bolstered his Beyoncé/Illuminati argument. In the video, Dice pointed to the singer’s 2010 Grammy Awards performance, where he said Beyoncé walked to the stage flanked by men dressed in military-style costumes reminiscent of a "Nazi-like police state."
But many critics are offering another theory as to why Beyoncé was flashing the triangle sign: To support her rapper husband Jay-Z, they say, whose record label uses a diamond as its symbol.
"Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance pretty much broke Twitter and the lights at the Superdome, but more importantly, it may have revealed her involvement in a powerful secret society," the Huffington Post joked. "It's all over, people. We're toast. (Or, maybe she was just doing the Roc-A-Fella records sign that pretty much everyone else does... but Illuminati is more fun.)"
Beyoncé's hand signs also had Twitter users buzzing.
