The Collins Elite has been at work for almost 70 years now, disseminating their "UFOs are Demons in disguise" propaganda among the vast American Fundamentalist community. It's been phenomenally successful, quite an achievement even for a high-placed secret society within the massive Military Industrial Complex. It seems that self-styled "prophet" Hal Lindsey was an early recruit, and has been circulating the UFO/Demon meme for a very long time now.
Lindsey predicted the second coming of Jesus was due in 1988, a "prophecy" that formed the backbone of his runaway bestseller, The 1980s: Countdown to Armageddon. Gee, somehow I missed the second coming and the apocalypse of the 90s. Could someone bring me up to speed?
For those who are not old enough to remember: Hal Lindsey wrote a popular book in the 70's titled The Late Great Planet Earth. In it he claimed that the Biblical "fig tree" was Israel and a Biblical generation equaled forty years; then he added forty years from the time when Israel became a state in 1948, which would take it to 1988, the supposed year of Christ's Second Coming. And in the pretrib scheme he disconnected the rapture from the Second Coming by seven years, accordingly, the rapture in 1981.As I've said before, these apocalypse "prophecies" are about as reliable as UFO mass landing predictions. And somehow people continue to make hucksters like Lindsey rich. Here are a few tidbits of prophecy from Lindsey's book:
In short, Hal Lindsey is an unrepentant false prophet who has been showered with royalties since then (false prophets in the Bible were showered with stones).
The alignment of the planets will cause weather pattern shifts. (p. 28)
UFOs are real and, “demons will stage a human spacecraft landing on earth.” (p. 33)
Communism in the U.S.S.R. will overtake American dominance on the world stage. (p. 81)
The U.S. could be “destroyed by a surprise Soviet nuclear attack.” (p.132)
The U.S. could “become a dependent of the 10-nation European confederacy.” (p. 132)
Hey dude- they were frickin' balloons
The revelations unearthed by Redfern about the Collins Elite and their UFO propaganda mills are causing considerable consternation among the Fundamentalist brigades. One radio program booked Nick Redfern and completely censored any mention that the Collins Elite created this whole UFO/Demon meme back in the 40s to justify the creation of a concentration camp vision of America based in ancient Jewish law. And then there are comments like this, from a "prophecy" website:
This seems like a psyop to discredit ministries that preach against the alien gospel... or is it a clue as to how the Dominionist elements may try to co-opt the UFO deception? Wheels within wheels...Meanwhile, the Bible Belt is becoming the Poverty Belt and America continues to enrich and empower China, whose workers are lifting themselves out of poverty with jobs that once belonged to Americans, working in factories that were literally torn from American soil and planted in China. If China ever calls in its loans, we may be facing either world war or total surrender and complete submission to a totalitarian Evangelical dictatorship:
In The Land Of Mao, A Rising Tide Of ChristianityIt isn't just China, it's all over the world. Evangelical Christianity is the new world order, not the New Age, and most certainly not UFOs. It's no accident- billions of US tax dollars have been funneled into this missionizing program since the Carter Administration, maybe even before. American workers have been sending their tithe dollars they can't afford to part with to people like Rick Warren who are using them to create a virtual Evangelical empire. It would be comical if it weren't so obscene.
Official Chinese surveys now show that nearly one in three Chinese describe themselves as religious, an astonishing figure for an officially atheist country, where religion was banned until three decades ago.
The last 30 years of economic reform have seen an explosion of religious belief. China's government officially recognizes five religions: Protestantism, Catholicism, Buddhism, Islam and Daoism. The biggest boom of all has been in Christianity, which the government has struggled to control.
Some recent surveys have calculated there could be as many as 100 million Chinese Protestants. That would mean that China has more Christians than Communist Party members, which now number 75 million.
China's youth once trundled across the countryside spreading communism. Now, they're spreading God's word.
Maybe people like Steven Greer are right- maybe the conditioning here is to unite the world under the Evangelical banner for a final battle against those dastardly "UFO demons."
Maybe that's what groups like the Collins Elite - and their armies of blow-dried shills and Internet dupes - have been planning all along.
UPDATE: Here's an interesting piece on how right wing politics have turned young Americans against Evangelicalism. The problem is however that what we call Evangelicalism was created out of whole cloth by far right political forces who hijacked the recruiting methods of the apolitical Jesus People movement of the early 70s in order to advance far right political causes. The far right's creation in the 20s- Fundamentalism- had taken on too much negative baggage, so a rebranding effort was called for.
But the real problem is the rest of the world, where these same interests have found unimaginable success. They've already shown their capability at using foreign labor to destroy the American economy, so don't doubt for a minute they won't try to do the same thing to destroy what's left of our freedom. Which is why calling out their bullshit on topics like UFOs and the occult is more important than ever before.
