Medal of Honor and the Five-Pointed Star

1 post / 0 new

The medal of honor includes an "inverted" pentagram or five-pointed star. It dates back to the Civil War as was an important award to Black troops.

It's hard to find much history of the symbol. Is it Masonic, Demonic or what? It's old enough to predate 20th C satanism.

Here's one comment I found from

The actual reason for an upside down star on this prestigious medal is because it IS prestigious. They wanted a star, among other things it represented the states, but try hanging a "right way up" star on a ribbon or neckpiece. Especially a ribbon, as you would only be able to use one small chain/link to hang it. Many early medals, even unofficial ones, had two links, one on each end of the ribbon. Two links means less chance of losing the medal itself, no one of course wanted to lose their MOH. Also, movement like simply bending over a table could flip the medal to its reverse side if dangling from one link in the middle. The only way to hang a star from two seperate links/rings is to turn it and have two arms of the star up. Plus the MOHs had/have a bar over the top reading "VALOR." Easier to hang that from two than one link. That is why other old medals were made with two links or chains to fasten them. To keep from losing them or if they were caught on anything it reduces the risk of breaking both. That is that.
The Pentagon Channel displays a pentagram. I'm shocked. It's actually a kind of psychological optical illusion. And marketing. They wanted a pentagram because that's the NAME. Point it down and the eye is drawn more to the scroller which is on most feeds. They assume you'll watch/listen to the reader.
As a conservative, I'm glad the most insane posts here are obviously leftists. Thehome page here currently has a headline with quote stating:
People who don't want to have to think for themselves adopt conservative positions, because they are quick and simple, and don't require much analysis.... must be conservative thinking to scream SATAN!! AAUUGGH!! when a design uses a star that's upside down? Hey, that's not me doing it. But that's the most simple analysis. So there are a lot of closet conservatives here.
The truth is too boring. One must be "in on" conspiracy theories to feel important and smarter than the average joe. Insulting people is easier than admitting you just may be wrong about something. Some people must reinforce their imagined overimportance by way of black helicopters and such.

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor

There's one thing that both progressives and conservatives can agree on, and they can quote both FDR and Ronald Reagan on it.

And that is that, "The best welfare program is a job."

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
