A peculiar video has been making the rounds on the internet, especially in Evangelical Christian circles, which purports to expose the hidden Satanic symbolism in R&B star Beyoncé’s performances.
The video, produced by a Simi Valley California church called Good Fight Ministries, is entitled “Beyonce, The Superbowl, Sasha and Satan” and claims that Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are disseminating Satanic and occult propaganda using hidden imagery in their performances and advertising.
The video uses a string of loose comparisons to connect the hip-hop couple to Alistair Crowley, Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan — simply because Jay-Z once gave an interview where he was wearing a shirt with the phrase “Do What Thou Wilt” emblazoned across it, which was a saying popularized by Crowley.
Narrating the video is the ministry’s founder, Pastor Joe Schimmel, who goes on to take various statements by Jay-Z and Beyoncé far out of context, claiming that the artists are allowing themselves to be possessed by evil spirits during their performances.
Perhaps the most bizarre point in the video is when the narrator analyzes Beyoncé’s marketed alter ego, Sasha Fierce:
This demonic entity is more than some alter ego, but a spirit that possesses Beyoncé’s body. In fact, Beyoncé seems to black out and be unconscious of her body when this evil spirit takes control.
On their website, Good Fight Ministries has numerous other links to videos that promote anti-Muslim propaganda, Planned Parenthood conspiracy theories, and other similar videos that allegedly unmasked the hidden Satanic messages in popular music.
