A strange conspiracy surfaced over the internet within the past seven years and every once in a while, it tends to resurrect itself within the YouTube crowd. Anyone who lived in the 1960s knows that most broadcasting networks would “sign off” of their nightly programming by broadcasting a reel playing the National anthem. Legend has it, that if you slow down the video, you can see subliminal messages briefly flashing across the screen.
The messages allegedly read as follows:
TRUST THE US GOVERNMENT
GOD IS REAL GOD IS WATCHING
BELIEVE IN GOVERNMENT GOD
REBELLION WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
OBEY CONSUME OBEY CONSUME
BUY MKULTRA BUY MKNAOMI
WORSHIP CONSUME OBEY BELIEVE
DO NOT QUESTION GOVERNMENT.
This image captures the first lines of the National Anthem “O Say can you see-by the dawn’s early light” and the word “Government” underlying the lyrics.
Of course with modern technology and our advanced video editing software, it is possible that this conspiracy is merely a hoax. However, conspiracy theorist’s websites such as Truthstreammedia.com reference Project MKUltra, also known as the CIA’s alleged mind control program—was allegedly the code name given to a series experiments on human subjects, designed and undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. The experiments were conducted with the purpose of injecting subliminal messages through various forms of propaganda such as television in the 1960s and 70s.
Truthstreammedia.com also attests that former president Bill Clinton apologized for these experiments.
Along with the retro videos of the National Anthem sign off, you will find what is allegedly an old CIA documentary on Project MK ULTRA Mind Control Techniques circulating around YouTube. Whether there is any legitimacy to the video or the “National Anthem Sign Off Conspiracy” or not, is yet to be confirmed or debunked. However, if this holds as true, it makes one wonder what modern day subliminal messages are embedded in mainstream media.
