£20 Notes Now Claimed to Be Part of the Coronavirus Conspiracy

Okay, the conspiracy theory about Coronavirus being spread by 5G mobile phone masts has reached a new level of Batshit craziness. Zelo Street today has put up a piece debunking the latest wrinkle, which is that the conspiracy is shown on the £20 note. This shows a mobile phone mast, and a schematic of something that looks like the virus, according to the people, who believe this bilge.

But it doesn’t. According to a piece in the Express on Friday, what looks like a phone mast is actually no such thing. It’s a picture of Margate lighthouse, which was a favourite location for the great Victorian painter, Turner. And the putative virus schematic is actually a diagram of Tate Britain’s staircase. Because the £20 note is in honour of Turner, and Tate Britain has got his portrait in it. The Depress is a terrible newspaper, but this time they’ve done something right, especially as, according to the Groan, 20 phone masts have now been set alight. Some of them aren’t even 5G, but 3G or 4G.

This type of rumour – that signs of the conspiracy are in hidden in plain sight, on dollar bills or company logos – has been running around since at least the ’60s. One of the most famous examples is Proctor & Gamble’s logo. This used to show a bearded old man’s head, and thirteen stars. This was alleged to be proof that the company was run by Satanists.  Curls in the old man’s hair were supposed to form 666, the number of the Great Beast of the end times, while the thirteen stars represented the 13 members of a witches’ coven. It was all rubbish. Proctor & Gamble’s an American company, and the 13 stars were supposed to represent the 13 founding states of the USA. The old man did not represent Satan, and it really was just happenstance the way those curls fell. The logo’s since been redesigned, so that the curls have been straightened out so nobody can mistake them for a Biblical prophecy that partly refers to the emperor Nero. The company has been accused of Satanic connections so many times, however, that they have made it very clear that they take an extremely proactive stance to anyone making the claim. This means that the moment someone puts together a flyer, pamphlet or otherwise disseminates the myth, the company goes after them with a suit.

Another example is Marlboro cigarettes. There was a rumour that the company head, Philip Marlboro, was a member of the KKK, and that the company’s connection to the Klan was covertly shown on the cigarettes’ packaging. Looked at the right way, the faces of the packet showed a ‘K’ in red, black and gold. This was supposed to show that the company was part of the Klan against Reds – Socialists and Communists – Blacks, and Golds – the Jews. It’s another myth, though Marlboro won’t say one way or another if it’s true, which is probably a mark of corporate disdain. As a tobacco company, Marlboro’s evil enough without having to include the Klan.

The rumours going around about the £20 note just seem to me to be another example of people finding spurious patterns and meaning where there isn’t any. Now there really are covert conspiracies out there, and sometimes the rumours of secret symbolism are actually true. The city of Bath was planned and laid out in the early 18th century by a freemason, and so the Royal Crescent there really is a lunar symbol, according to masonic symbolism. But that’s far from saying that Bath is run by any kind of Masonic conspiracy now, although I don’t doubt that it has its lodges. That type of secret society and its symbolism exists.

But the myth about the Coronavirus and 5G phone masts is just a myth. Treat it as such.

    The whole thing is getting out of hand, they need to catch those responsible and throw the book at them.
    The first example of esoteric symbolism being shown on a bank note was probably the infamous pyramid and All-Seeing-Eye on the Dollar bill, which I think appeared in 1933 under the FDR administration, FDR having been greatly influenced by Nicholas Roerich and Manly P. Hall. Hardly surprising though considering that Rosicrucians and Freemasons were instrumental in the settlement of America and the founding of the USA, and could only be interpreted as something sinister by those who have no knowledge of that historic connection.

      I thought of the all-seeing eye in the pyramid on the dollar bills as well, but didn’t mention it as back in the ’90s there were also any number of stupid conspiracy theories about the masons running America, and being responsible for George Bush senior’s New World Order.

      • trev Says:

        Indeed. Those conspiracy theories still persist, spread by people who unfortunately have no real knowledge of the subject. There is much confusion between the NWO and ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ (the New Order of The Ages), and even the New Age (of Aquarius). One thing’s fairly certain, America is Bacon’s ‘New Atlantis’. And America is the ‘New World’. Much of the rest is conjecture or misunderstood ideals, goals and ambitions. Many books have been written on the subject by many different authors, some more qualified than others, I would recommend ‘The Secret Destiny of America’ by Manly P. Hall.

        Sounds interesting. I’ve come across the rumours about Masonic influence on the foundation of America, but haven’t really gone into it.

        Oh yes, it’s not really even a secret, that’s why the conspiracy theories are just plain daft, the information is freely available to any serious researcher. I have another book, with a rather sensational and intriguing title; ‘Turning the Solomon Key’ by Robert Lomas. It’s all about how George Washington used his knowledge of Masonic Astrology in siting the Whitehouse, Capitol building, and in helping to design the layout of Washington D.C. , essentially written as a rebuke to Richard Dawkins who said that if there was any truth to Astrology then at least a statistical link should exist. Lomas teaches Statistical Analysis at Bradford University, and is also a Freemason and Masonic Researcher (apparently he was the influence for one of the characters in that Dan Brown book/movie, The DaVinci Code, not that I ever bothered with that). It’s very interesting. Nothing sinister about it though.
