People thought I was exaggerating about the return of paganism, the creation of neo-paganistic rites, and the mainstreaming of Satanic practices (here and here). Lo, I was not. The horrific video described below will be proof enough. But first things first.
In one of the Wikileaks emails, Marina Abramovic invites the Podestas to dinner (I only show part of the correspondence). But not an ordinary dinner.
Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina
If it lasts, there is a video by Abramovic explaining the nature of Spirit Cooking. Recipes are painted on a wall in blood. The first is “Mix fresh breast milk with fresh sperm milk; Drink on earthquake nights.” The other recipes are similar; most revolve around sex (Abramovic spent much of her career stripping off).
Now, did Podesta, and those in connection with him, have a “Spirit Cooking” dinner in the manner described by Abramovic? Or did they merely bless their asparagus, dedicating it to Mother Nature or some such other drivel?
I have no idea, and neither do you. I’m guessing it was something along the lines of the latter and not the former. But who knows? It’s really too depressing to imagine the former. And so is what is shown below.
Wikipedia describes Abramovic as a “performance artist”, a term which describes people who deliver neither performances nor art. The intent is never to create beauty, but to shock and “transgress”, notions which are, to use the phrase in its classical meaning, satanic.
As proof, Wikipedia says Abramovic “pioneered a new notion of identity by bringing in the participation of observers, focusing on ‘confronting pain, blood, and physical limits of the body.'” Example? How about her “work” entitled Rhythm 10, a.k.a. “mumbly pegs”?
Making use of twenty knives and two tape recorders, the artist played the Russian game, in which rhythmic knife jabs are aimed between the splayed fingers of one’s hand. Each time she cut herself, she would pick up a new knife from the row of twenty she had set up, and record the operation. After cutting herself twenty times, she replayed the tape, listened to the sounds, and tried to repeat the same movements, attempting to replicate the mistakes, merging past and present…”Once you enter into the performance state you can push your body to do things you absolutely could never normally do.”
Rhythm 5 added the element of fire jumping, during which she lost consciousness. She built on that theme in Rhythm 2, wherein “she ingested a medication she describes as ‘given to patients who suffer from catatonia to force them to change the positions of their bodies'”. She bested herself in Rhythm 0:
Abramović placed on a table 72 objects that people were allowed to use (a sign informed them) in any way that they chose. Some of these were objects that could give pleasure, while others could be wielded to inflict pain, or to harm her. Among them were a rose, a feather, honey, a whip, olive oil, scissors, a scalpel, a gun and a single bullet. For six hours the artist allowed the audience members to manipulate her body and actions…[At the end] there were cuts on her neck made by audience members, and her clothes were cut off of her body.
Abramovic not only runs around sans couture, but she talked “Lady” Gaga into doing the same in a video entitled “The Abramović Method as practiced by Lady Gaga”, in which a nude Gaga chants and sports symbolic horns.
Or how about the 2011 Museum of Contemporary Art Annual Gala [Editor’s note: the event includes images too graphic for us to link] in Los Angeles—what an inapt name!—with Abramovic and Deborah Harry? Fairly realistic nude effigies of the two women were brought in on gurneys to a crowd and then—wait for it…wait for it—the breasts of the effigies were sliced off, then the arms sliced off, then other parts sliced off, revealing guts which were also realistic.
The “body” parts and guts were then served by shirtless men on fancy plates to the Gala attendees. The attendees were thus able to fulfill their cannibalistic fantasies. One man sidled up between “Abramovic’s” legs and ate what was there. It was obvious the expensively dressed patrons of the “arts” enjoyed their feast.
Is this the kind of Spirit Cooking Abramovic invited Podesta to?
Abramovic embraces the occult, and not just in her Spirit Cooking. Abramovic showed in my Satanism in fashion article. She produced a video called “Balkan Erotic Epic” which, among other things, features ecosexuals, i.e. those who simulate sex with dirt, and in which tumescent men mock the Cross (the link is safe).
Abramovic was interviewed by actor—actor! a real actor!—James Franco for the Wall Street Journal. Which is proof that all State media sources have sold their souls.
Abramovic, being famous, runs in high places. Such as with the Podestas, our elite masters. More evidence Christianity is dead at the top.
