“Elysium” is yet another tired entry in the barrage of anti-American, anti-Christian sci-fi movies to have dazzled unsuspecting young minds in recent years. It comes courtesy of Director Neil Blomkamp, a South African–Canadian (foreigner) who, according to Examiner.com, does not like that Americans shine floodlights across the border into Tijuana, Mexico, and Matt Damon, a well-known activist with ties to revisionist historian Howard Zinn. In 2009, the History Channel ran “The People Speak,” a show that featured readings from Zinn’s The People’s History of the United States, read by such intellectual giants as Damon, Josh Brolin, Viggo Mortensen, and Danny Glover, according to Vulture.com. Therefore, right from the get-go, one can well guess what kind of social commentary is on tap in “Elysium.”
Elysium is like a big wheel out in space, an off-earth refuge for the upper-crust who are white in the movie; the downtrodden on earth, in Los Angeles, are almost all Mexican, which would seem very bizarre, but it’s set in 2154 so the idea is obviously that much of California and the Southwest are destined to be under Mexican control anyway, so let’s just get on with the obliteration of U.S. sovereignty.
The Elysium wheel is a five-pronged star inside a circle, or in effect, a pentagram; it can also be viewed as a dot within a circle which is a satanic symbol with Baal-Ashteroth sexual overtones. Thus, the Elysium ship, held up as a manmade paradise, actually reeks of Baal-Ashteroth sexual imagery, multiple satanic symbols (pentagram and dot-within-a-circle), and Masonry’s obsession with the number 5 (typified by the very Masonic “Washington Monument” which is 555 feet and 5 inches tall).
Thus, this satanically suggestive pseudo-paradise, Elysium, would represent a turning of good and evil on their heads a la Isaiah 5: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!… Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel…. Woe unto them that … regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished…” (Isaiah 5: 20, 24, 11a, 12b, 13a&b KJV). Many Biblically illiterate Americans are now held captive by socialist pretensions, an anti-God worldview, revisionist history, and communist-leaning sympathies. For crying out loud, the MLK Jr. statue, a horrible specter, was sculpted by a Chinese sculptor renowned for his sculptures of mass murderer Mao Tse-tung, and few Americans say even a peep! When our people have no Biblical knowledge, the honorable men are famished—thus the brilliant and decent Robert Bork was rejected for Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court when he was ten times the man that John Roberts is, and Constitution Party candidates with wonderful potential to lead the country back to its Judeo-Christian roots languish in obscurity, pushed aside by globalist hacks and communist-sympathizing media chiefs.
Moreover, the Elysium wheel-within-a-wheel imagery would appear to be another satanic counterfeit of the very good wheel-within-a-wheel imagery in Ezekiel
10:2 & 10. In Ezekiel’s vision by the river Chebar, four cherubim, had the likeness of a wheel in the midst of a wheel. These good cherubs, in contrast to the evil cherub Satan, move straight and deliberately and in unison with the very throne of God; a man in linen takes coals of fire from between the cherubs, from between the wheels, and scatters them over a city (as a righteous judgment); the Elysium ship’s wheel-within-a-wheel would seem to scatter only chaos and death in keeping with Satan’s dark designs.
What kind of producers, directors, and the like would think it’s a good idea to put robotic Policia in charge of Los Angeles, an American city? Anti-American, globalist, socialist, and Biblically illiterate ones—that’s what kind. The policia should stay in Mexico. (By the way, the robotic Mexican police beat up the main character for “disobedient joking.”) On the day I saw “Elysium,” in the summer of 2013, the NYPD was proposing a stop-and-frisk program—official harassment and communist-style thuggery in the guise of “crime prevention.”
The very disturbing Elysium wheel comes complete with its very own high-toned agency that actually does evil—in the communist tradition of the “People’s Liberation Army” or the “Public Security Bureau,” and in the socialist tradition of the U.S. “Homeland Security Department.” Yes, Elysium has its very own “Civil Cooperation Bureau” which, neither civil nor cooperative, kills those trying to escape death and destruction down below on earth. Under the insidious and incompetent leadership of Janet Napolitano, the DHS circulated a memo that targeted Christians and returning war veterans, describing both groups as potential terrorists. In reality, those two groups have added to the physical and spiritual strength of the nation like few other groups have, and they are to be cherished and respected. One Los Angeles Times story even insinuated that the threat to the U.S. is not jihadists, but white men who are religiously zealous and have guns, according to Christian evangelist Anita Fuentes. Fuentes’ characterization of the story as treasonous is one with which I heartily concur.
Astonishingly, the off-earth utopia scenes were filmed in Vancouver, B.C., which is where Director Blomkamp makes his home (naturally), and the “Los Angeles” scenes were filmed in a Mexico City slum—in effect, this South African–Canadian shot in Canada and Mexico in order to smush the U.S. inside a Canadian-Mexican sandwich, a pincer movement against the strength and decency of the American people. In spite of the director’s disingenuous filming of “Los Angeles” (2154 or not), Wikipedia claims he is known for his cinéma vérité technique. I would suggest he be known for “cinéma falsité” bunk. Also according to Wikipedia, a 2010 Blomkamp video featured more disturbing content in a digital version of Wired Magazine—this time, a mutated and dead part-pig, part-lizard organism in a puddle. I have to say that much of what passes for art these days is not art at all.
Blomkamp noted in an interview that America is slowly going to its “Third-World deathbed,” according to NivisonMedia.com. Far from evincing any spiritual understanding of the American decline, he seems to camp on a snarky and childish spitefulness—an insipid and dastardly mindset that obviously had its incubation in Canada, America’s largely socialist and often treacherous neighbor.
On a spiritual note, that the Max character would have to suit up with a mark on his right arm and a surgically-installed implant in his head to go to Elysium begs the question of what Elysium is exactly. If Elysium is a big pentagram floating in space, a satanic wheel-within-a-wheel counterfeit, and a hub for Antichrist destructive power, then the Revelation 13 description of the Antichrist’s thirst to mark the deceived shows the Max character to be something of a false savior (remembering that Max uses the Lord’s Name in vain twice in the movie): “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon…. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Rev. 13:11, 16-17 KJV).
As if that were not enough, Max’s head implant comes from an icky organization called “Sabre Cerebral Defence,” which takes as its logo a skull-and-bones form that substitutes knives (or sabres) for bones. In effect, Max’s false savior mission is stamped by the very anti-Christian skull-and-bones form, and by association, Max would seem to be wielding a diabolical sabre, or sword, in his effort to bring more people under the umbrella of the pentagram (Elysium).
On the side of goodness and light, the Son of Man (the Lord Jesus Christ) is seen in Revelation 1 with a “sharp two-edged sword” going out of His mouth—that is to say, the Alpha and Omega, the first and last who will be alive forever, who holds the keys of hell and death (Revelation 1), and who will destroy His enemies with His sharp Word at the appointed times (Revelation 19 & 20).
Max is said to have “the keys to the kingdom” in his head, but we know that a false savior taking people to a pentagram is not the way to go; such a false savior should be shunned. The One who saves is the Lord Jesus Christ; the One with the keys to heaven is the Lord Jesus Christ (no man cometh to the Father but by Jesus, John 14:6), and the One who holds the keys of hell and death is the Lord Jesus Christ. As the Lord Jesus is the Creator (Colossians 1), Savior, and Judge, we best follow Jesus, not some false savior that leads people to a satanic symbol. “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you…. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matt. 24:4, 24 KJV).
Disturbingly, the Civil Cooperation Bureau (CCB, no less) plane used to shoot down invaders actually has the figure of a two-horned goat painted on the forward part of the fuselage. Thus, the goat-plane, as it were, hunts down those who don’t carry the goatish Elysium flag, so to speak: “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [i.e., Israel] which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time [i.e., three-and-a-half years], from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Rev. 12:13-17 KJV).
Given Elysium’s pentagram, and its Baal-Ashteroth and otherwise satanic symbology, the appearance of a goat-plane just solidifies the level of Antichrist componentry in the film, as we recall Revelation 13:11 above: “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” The goat theme seemingly has no clear referent in the film and jumps out at any viewer with even a passing knowledge of Revelation.
As a typical entry in a dismal series of anti-American films that have come out of Holly Wood (a witch’s utensil) in recent years, “Elysium” features whites as rich sadists, while Mexicans are portrayed as sympathetic, likeable, or downright heroic. “Spider” begins as a mean-looking Mexican gang leader, but is transformed in the course of the movie into a hero who goes to Elysium and is pivotal in getting new citizens added to the utopian wheel in space. As such, the movie is an abject vehicle for more anti-white, Affirmative Action, pro–Mexican invasion, and pro-amnesty propaganda. The story is thin, anti-Bible, and full of occult symbology—just how many Holly Wood producers like it these days. Apparently kicking what’s left of the Judeo-Christian West can be kind of fun, the stuff of a “summer popcorn flick” in the words of Director Blomkamp, especially if one is a spoiled brat from Africa who lives hypocritically amidst Canadian luxury while thumbing his nose at white America.
How gross that Holly Wood traitors would propagate outlandishly anti-white, racist films (domestically), then turn around and appease the Communist Chinese (internationally) by changing the bad guys in the pre-release version of “Red Dawn 2” from Chinese Communists to North Korean Communists! In effect, Holly Wood—like the deep-water Port of Long Beach, the Panama Canal, American universities, Boeing, Microsoft, and Silicon Valley—has become a tool of the Communists, of Mao Tse-tung’s political and military heirs.
According to Glenn Beck and Variety, “Elysium” is “beating the drum loudly not just for universal health care, but for open borders, unconditional amnesty and the abolition of class distinctions….” Beck has rightly noticed the correlation between Obama’s socializing with Holly Wood personalities and Holly Wood’s consistent production of Marxist-style movies that would likely have been hailed by Obama’s Marxist mentor Frank Marshall Davis. What’s a little quid pro quo, or mutual back-scratching, between socialists?
In the 1930’s Nazi Germans pressured Holly Wood to refrain from releasing anything that was overtly anti-Hitler. In the 1920’s, according to David Knight of InfoWars.com, a Russian propaganda film called “Battleship Potemkin” vilified the Czarists while glorifying the Communist revolutionaries: Czarist soldiers are shown massacring innocent civilians on the Odessa steps, and a mother is shot, leaving her baby carriage to bounce down the steps haplessly. According to Knight, Director Eisenstein harnessed the power of montage in “Battleship Potemkin,” using images strategically to create the desired cumulative effect—in this case, pro-Communist sentiments.
“Battleship Potemkin” has no central characters, Knight suggests, but rather a mob of “communal actors” that function corporately as the “awakened masses.” In the 1940’s mass murderer Stalin forced a revision to the film, deleting a starkly Communist quote from Trotsky. “Elysium’s” message, according to Alex Jones of InfoWars.com, is that “white people are bad, that we should bring in socialism and communism and bring down America…. America is Elysium, and if America won’t take in the giant Third World populations of the planet then [it is] racist and bad…. [But] how dare [the movie producers] imply that inequity has to do with white people [particularly]. I’m sick of the West being bashed. All the things the West has developed—all the literature, all the art, the Magna Carta, the basic freedoms that became the model of the world…. America is the most open society, the American people the most giving.”
Europeans have been in this land for over 400 years now, since landing at Jamestown in 1609, and the Constitutional Republic is about 225 years old now, since the Constitution was ratified on June 21, 1788 at the Philadelphia Convention. The Preamble to the Constitution calls for “insuring domestic tranquility,” “providing for the common defense,” and “securing the blessings of liberty.” The domestic tranquility and common defense that we seek cannot be grasped if a dumbed-down people put secret-society traitors at the helm, moles that trample the Judeo-Christian heritage of this great land. And from whence does liberty, or freedom, come? From an appeasement of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Saudi Arabia, Mexican invaders, Mexican socialists, Chinese Communists, or Russian Communists? No.
Liberty comes from a general and steadfast adherence to the Word of God, the Holy Bible, that which was clung to by the majority of our Founding Fathers. “Reality TV,” any-god-will-do apostasy in every sector of society, sports mania (and madness), and lasciviousness will lead to Communist guns in our streets, in my considered opinion. Let us harken to the Word of God once again! “For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” (James 1:23-25 KJV).
