More spam-bot fun. Got one today with the following: “colorado gangster disciples <something about pills> willy sterling gangster disciples <something about porn> laws of gangster disciples <etc etc etc>”
I did a little googling and found out the Gangster Disciples were/are apparently a big gang out of Chicago, started in the 60′s. The symbol attached to their wiki page is as follows:
Pretty trippy stuff. I’ve noticed some similarly esoteric looking gang graffiti up in my neighborhood, and I’ve been curious how long gangs had been into occult symbology. Apparently at least since the 60′s. Ken Wilber likened warring gang cultures to tribal level “red meme” (or whatever), and I’ve always wondered if that meant they had medicine men, shamans, or something of that sort. I imagine there’s got to be something/one to fulfill that role, but I’m surprised to see it might be the occult. More signs and symbols and things are viewable here. Check the rest of that set, pages 4 through 12 at least…
And for all you Illuminati Eye in the Triangle Conspiracy Theory folks, this is from a PDF on docstoc called “book of knowledge gangster disciples”. The whole thing makes an interesting read, although it seem to be a law enforcement document, and so the language is correspondingly dull:
You gotta love the “Conservative Vice Lords” held up as comparison to the “Insane Vice Lords”. Wonder what our political landscape would look like if the Democrats were the “Insane” party, rather than the “Liberal” party. (Which is in no way meant to be a political joke, so please no “I’d say they already are the insane party, hyuk, hyuk!” kind of comments…). Anyway, I guess for me it just goes to show that these things might be more representative of something built into all human consciousness, rather than that they’re somehow conspiratorially related just because the same things are used in different places.
