Killer Was a Left Wing, Pot Smoking Occultist
While much of the liberal media tried to paint the gunman who tragically shot congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head, and killed six others, as the product of conservative talk radio, a totally different picture is beginning to emerge. Katie Parker, a former classmate of Jared Loughner’s, who describes herself as once a “really good friend” of the alleged mass murderer, described him as a “leftwing pothead.” Parker revealed in a series of tweets, “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal.” She further tweeted that “he was a pot head and into rock (music) like Hendrix, The Doors, Anti-Flag.” Speaking of bands like Anti-Flag, one of Loughner’s rants on his Myspace page declared, “There’s no flag in the Constitution. Therefore, the flag in the film is unknown. Burn every new and old flag that you see. Burn your flag!”
Loughner was enamored by far left politics and radical books that advocated big government. Loughner cited Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and Marx’s “The Communist Manifesto” as his favorite books. Evidence now more than suggests that Loughner was an occult practitioner. The New York Daily News reported:
“A sinister shrine reveals a chilling occult dimension in the mind of the deranged gunman accused of shooting a member of Congress and 19 others. Hidden within a camouflage tent behind Jared Lee Loughner’s home sits an alarming altar with a skull sitting atop a pot filled with shriveled oranges. A row of ceremonial candles and a bag of potting soil lay nearby, photos reveal.” (Source)
God repeatedly warns us in the bible to abstain from all categories of occult activity (Deuteronomy 18:9-12). This is not only because we are to depend upon our Creator for our spiritual needs and worship Him alone, but because God wants to guard us from the dark spiritual forces that occult activity opens us up to. The apostle Paul warned the church at Ephesus:
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:10-12).
Jesus warned that Satan is not only the father of lies but that he was a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44). Those who engage in occult activity open themselves up to demonic forces that inspire all kinds of reprehensible behavior, including murder. This may be why Loughner’s altar consisted of offerings to a skull, representing death. The skull, when used in ceremonial and ritualistic magic, is often symbolic of death, the spirit realm or a particular occult deity being worshipped. The bible states that all who hate God love death, “But he who sins against me injures himself; All those who hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36).
Loughner’s Hero, Karl Marx
Karl Marx, who co-authored “The Communist Manifesto” with Friedrich Engels, was like Loughner, an occultist who was obsessed with death. His close friend Wilhelm Weitling wrote: “Usual topics for conversation with Marx are atheism, the guillotine, Hegel, rope and knife.” Though a confessed atheist when it came to paying homage to the one true God, the evidence suggests that Marx believed in God, but hated Him and trafficked in occult activity. Like Loughner, who had a selfmade altar with a skull to which he lit candles, Marx’s housemaid stated that Marx was quite spiritual and would light black candles and utter “prayers.” As we shall see these prayers were likely of the occult nature.
Marx’s biographers have long been puzzled by a letter his father wrote to him on February 10, 1838, wherein he refers to a mysterious and contoversial experience that Marx underwent sometime earlier. His father wrote, “I didn’t demand any explanations about such a mysterious thing, though it seems to be very controversial.”
However, the mystery is likely solved when we consider the fact that exacttly three months prior to this letter Marx wrote to his father about a mysterious experience wherein he felt that his heart had been abandoned by God and that he was determined to replace the void with other gods. Marx wrote to his father on November 10, 1837, “my heart seems to have erred, overwhelmed by my militant spirit,” and “real unrest has taken possession of me.” Marx dropped the bomb when he wrote, “The cover has fallen, my Holy of Holies was emptied and there was a need to put new gods there.”
The evidence from this letter, as well as other writings by Marx around this time, reveal that he felt abandoned by God and sought occult or demon gods to fill the void. While still a teenager Marx had known the truth about the one true God and wrote beautiful poems that glorified Jesus Christ. However, the evidence reveals that his desire to be filled with false gods was a result of his flirtation with Satanism.
Marx’s SatanismThis chilling transformation, wherein Marx perceived his heart emptied of God and then filled with false gods, is reflected in Marx’s poem Transformations. Marx begins by stating that he is “so confused” and that “My powers all were gone, and all the heart’s glow lost and trembling, pale, I long gazed into my own breast; by no uplifting song was my affliction blessed… The fiery glow was drowned, void was the bosom’s land.” Yet after experiencing a sense of emptiness Marx writes of seeking the demon gods and as a sorcerer commanding spirits, “I had truly found what my dark strivings were… my spirits then and there soared, jubilant and gay, and, like a sorcerer, their courses did I sway.” Marx continued, “With magic power and word I cast what spells I knew.”
In Siren Song Marx would write of demonic possession, “The gods in my breast rule, and I obey them all.” In The Pale Maiden, Marx writes about rejecting Jesus Christ and his heart being stolen away by a mysterious encroaching figure, “Thus Heaven I’ve forfeited, I know it full well. My soul, once true to God, is chosen for Hell.”
In Marx’s satanic poems, written not long before his confession to his father, we see a side of Karl Marx of which most are still ignorant. A side that exposes the diabolical root that is at the heart of Marxist ideology. Incredibly, Marx wrote repeatedly about his desire to usurp the place of God and his desire to serve the devil. Marx also wrote of his desire to enslave humanity and traverse triumphantly through the world’s ruins and rule as though he himself were God.
In his letter to his father, wherein Marx writes about filling his heart with new gods, he mentions a horrifying drama he wrote called “Oulanem,” which is a distortion of Jesus’ prophetic name, Immanuel (God with us). Marx begins with a traveler who can find no place to stay in an Inn. The drama is revealing, for just as in his poems Marx speaks of a desire to usurp the role of God and rule for the devil.
Far from being a genuine athiest, Marx exhibited hatred for the Creator and praise for the devil. Echoing Satan’s quest recorded in the biblical book of Isaiah, wherein he vainly boasts, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God,” (Isaiah 14:13) Marx wrote, “I long to take vengeance on the one who rules from above.”
Marx wrote in Invocation of One in Despair that God “has snatched from me my all” and that “Nothing but revenge is left to me! On myself revenge I’ll proudly wreak, on that being, that enthroned Lord.” Marx added “I shall build my throne high overhead, cold, tremendous shall its summit be. For its bulwark, superstitious dread, for its Marshall-blackest agony… And the Almighty’s lightning shall rebound from that massive iron giant. If he bring my walls and towers down, eternity shall raise them up, defiant.”
Apparently Marx, like many Satanists, believed that Satan, the prince of darkness, would empower him with a sword of diabolical power. Marx writes, “Hellish evaporations rise and fill my brains… see this sword? The King of darkness sold it to me.”
Tragically, this satanic sword would be wielded to shed the blood of over a hundred million people in the last century alone, through the advancement of international communism, which Marx inspired.
In The Fiddler (PDF), Marx writes about carrying souls “down to hell” and declares, “Till heart’s bewitched, till senses reel: With Satan I have struck my deal. He chalks the signs, beats time for me, I play the death march fast and free.”
Marx’s Deification of ManIn his perverse and diabolical poem Human Pride, Marx gushed about his quest to reign in God’s stead and “wander Godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world… I will feel equal to the Creator.”
Lest anyone think that these were mere boyhood fancies and did not shape Marx’s ideology, it should be noted that for Marx man’s deification would only come after the obliteration of any and all religions that recognized a supreme supernatural authority. “The criticism of religion” said Marx, “ends with the teaching that man is the highest being for man…” Marx wrote in the preface to his doctoral dissertation that he stood “against all heavenly and earthly gods who do not recognize human self-consciousness as the highest divinity. There must be no god on a level with it.”In her book The Moor and the General: Memoirs of Marx and Engels, Marx’s daughter, Eleanor, revealed that her dad would repeatedly tell her an endless story about a wizard who had made a pact with the devil from which he could not escape. She states that the story sounded so real and horrifying that her hair would stand on end. Author Robert Payne, in his book Marx, states “Scarely can we doubt that those never ending stories were autobiographic. Sometimes it seemed as though he was realizing that he was performing the devil’s duty.”
In Marx’s correspondence with one of his sons, his son adresses him as “Dear devil,” and in a letter from his wife he is called the “high priest and soul possessor,” all terms used in Satanism.
These connections, along with a multitude of others, led Richard Wurmbrand, who was tortured and imprisoned for several years by Marxists, to conclude in his book Marx & Satan, that Karl Marx belonged to a Satanic cult that was hell bent on world dominion and used communistic ideology as a front to enslave humanity.
While the evidence Wurmbrand marshalls is interesting, the most we can say is that while Marx may or may not have belonged to a satanic cult, Marx himself seemed to believe that he had been enlisted by Satan to play a major role in ridding the world of the knowledge of God and enslaving it to a totalitarian ideology. Marx apparently hoped that he himself would be Satan’s vice regent on earth!
In his poem The Last Judgment, Marx dreams about being sick with fear and his hair standing on end as God expels him from the heavenly kingdom and thrusts him into hell. It seems as though Marx only had one ultimate purpose and that was to bring as many of his duped minions down to hell with him. He wrote:
“In the meantime, as the abyss gapes before me and you in the darkness, you will fall in it and I’ll follow you, laughing and whispering into your ear: ‘Come down with me, friend!’…. Perished, perished. My time is over… Will speak out a curse to all manki… Hah, eternity, our eternal pain, indescribable, unmeasurable death!”
Karl Marx died destitute and spiritually bankrupt as all who serve themselves and diabolical forces do. He wrote to Engels on March 25, 1883, “How purposeless and empty life is…” While Marx, along with the hundred million plus his communist ideology inspired to murder are dead, communism and socialism live on, as does the diabolical spirit behind it.Saul Alinsky, the transformational communist whose disciples helped Barack Obama come to power and from whom Obama learned many of his political tactics, dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to the same entity to which Marx dedicated his life. In Alinsky’s words, “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom–Lucifer.”
