The libertarian-leaning super PAC that announced Friday that America should boycott the Super Bowl halftime performance because it would be the work of the "Illuminati" said Beyonce confirmed their worst expectations.
Though Elect a New Congress didn't actually watch the show due to the boycott, its founder, Bill Fawell, tells Whispers he was informed of a hand signal Beyonce made near the end of her performance that he says is a symbol of the Illuminati.
"I understand Beyonce 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 wrote in an E-mail, referring to the conspiracy theory that the Illuminati, an ancient, clandestine group of rich and powerful people, once controlled every aspect of society. "What is that old saying... 'a leopard never changes its spots?' I think that is it, and that is what the boycott was about," Fawell says.
While a pyramid is believed be a sign of the Illuminati, the diamond-shaped hand signal Beyonce made last night is actually the "dynasty sign," a hand sign made popular by Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, as a symbol of his music label Roc-A-Fella Records and clothing label Rocawear.
After last year's Super Bowl halftime show, conspiracy theorists similarly said Madonna's performance was the work of the Illuminati, in part because she was surrounded by male dancers who formed in the shape of a pyramid.
