How come none of you fruits told me that Alcoholics Anonymous is part of the Illuminati, and that's why Eminem keeps rapping about kicking drugs and alcohol, as if anyone gives a shit? It's like I have to do everything myself!

I first suspected that there was a connection between Eminem, Alcoholics Anonymous and the Illuminati yesterday, when I saw a picture of Eminem in what appeared to be an Illuminati necklace, at the Grammys. There was a post on MTV's zombie-like, asinine list-laden (Complex-esque, if you will) rap blog about how Eminem wore this necklace and medallion, supposedly the symbol for Alcoholics Anonymous, to the Grammys. I took one look at it and I was like, Tha fuck? Why does Eminem have an Illuminati symbol on his bling bling?

I recognized that little triangle in a circle symbol right away, from the Illuminati music video analysis website Vigilant Citizen's analysis of music videos by well known members of the Illuminati, including Jay-Z (natch), Lady Gaga and Kanye West. It's also on the back of a dollar bill, as discussed in the film Dazed and Confused. Did you know that George Washington grew a shedload of weed at Mount Vernon? He thought it would be a good cash crop for the southern states. Behind every good man is a woman, and for George Washington that woman was Martha Washington. Every day he'd come home from work and she'd have a fat bowl waiting for him. She was a hip, hip lady.

I did a quick Google search on "Alcoholics Anonymous Illuminati," and wouldn't you know, there were pages of results about how Alcoholics Anonymous was started by members of the Illuminati. Shocker! I clicked on the first result (if you check now, my site is now the second result for this string; hopefully the Illuminati doesn't see that and have me assassinated), which broke down some of the similarities between the Illuminati and Alcoholics Anonymous, aside from just having the same logo.

One of the symbols used by Crowley to identify his fraternal order is the Masonic triangle within a circle with the acronyms A.A. inscribed below it. This symbol is now known globally as the symbol of Alcoholics Anonymous.Crowley published a book in 1922 entitled Diary of a Drug Fiend. In this book Crowley presents a satanic program of recovery from drug addiction. Throughout Diary of a Drug fiend, its publication predating Alcoholics Anonymous by 17 years, there are many themes and phrases, both similar and identical that are also common in “The Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous. These themes include “abandoning free will”, “abandoning ones self”, “it’s beyond human power”, “god is beyond conception”, “Do what thou wilt”, “Do with me as thou wilt” etc. The identical ideology of these doctrines is this: free will is useless therefore hand your will over to someone or something else.

Of course MTV's rap blog explained that the circle with a triangle in it is the symbol for Alcoholics Anonymous, and this was meant to show how serious Eminem is about his sobriety. It's one thing to make an album about how you're done using drugs and alcohol. It's a whole other thing to wear a shiny necklace symbolizing your level of commitment. That necklace probably cost him a shedload of money - even though he's probably got way more money than you'd think. He was the top-selling artist of the aughts, even more so than the Beatles, and for most of that decade you could still make money selling CDs (without resorting to any scams via PayPal). The movie 8 Mile grossed over $242 million. (I looked it up just now in the world's most accurate encyclopedia.) He's probably got way more money than you'd think. And yet you don't really hear him mentioned in discussions of rich rappers. Hmm... At any rate, I can't imagine his Illuminati/sobriety chain would be fake, like Yung Berg's Transformers chain. Not only would that not make sense, given his ridonkulous wealth, but it would undermine his message about how it's supposedly important to not do drugs and alcohol.

Speak for yourself, Em!

The fact that MTV, which recently funded a video by LCD Soundsystem that's full of Illuminati imagery, the first music video to ever be funded by MTV (a coincidence, I'm sure), didn't bother to mention the obvious Illuminati symbolism in the design of Eminem's bling bling led me to believe that MTV was purposely trying to distract people from finding out the real meaning of that little circle with the triangle in it. which I'm sure has to do with submitting yourself to members of the Illuminati for ritualized anal rape, or something disgusting like that. (Not that there's anything wrong with gay people. Just saying.) Lest we forget, the triangle is the international symbol for homosexuality, and that's why Christian supremacist groups were trying to have that show Teletubbies canceled, because the purple one had a big triangle on its head. (The color purple is also gay - both the Broadway musical, which I believe Oprah is involved with. and the actual color.)

As far as why the Illuminati would have Eminem wear this symbol to the Grammys on his bling bling, I suspect that it was meant to send out messages of homosexuality to today's youth on a subconscious level. When you see Eminem in an Illuminati necklace, you might not think anything of it, but on a subconscious level, it makes you that much more likely to take it up the coat. As discussed by the Vigilant Citizen, rap videos these days are full of such imagery, and that's why today's youth is so much more teh ghey than kids who grew up in the 1990s, when rap music was about something. (Let me know if I'm getting too deep here. Nullus.) But that necklace is definitely weird-looking and thus destined to arouse suspicion, amongst other things, and that's why the Illuminati specifically ordered MTV to explain, to people dumb enough to believe anything it says on the MTV website, that the medallion on Eminem's necklace is the symbol of Alcoholics Anonymous, of which Eminem is a member. Even though I thought the whole idea of Alcoholics Anonymous is that it's anonymous, hence the word anonymous in its name.
