Has anyone else noticed that the Medal of Honor, the most prestigious award you can receive in the military, is an upside-down pentagram?

Its just a star. Not every star need to be part of a satanic ritual. As for it being upside down, maybe they decided that it looked stupid hanging from one point and swinging around like that.


from this site
The selected Medal of Honor design consisted of an INVERTED, 5-pointed STAR. On each of the five points was a cluster of LAUREL leaves to represent victory, mixed with a cluster of OAK to represent strength.

Notice that this means that having it inside a circle, which, as far as I understand it would be required of a pentagram, is not part of the oringal design.

Also notice from that page that there are roman goddesses and gods and fasces and all the rest. Does that make it a fascist symbol or a Roman Cult Symbol? What I am getting at is that there are other possibilities for the symbol being used.

Interestingly, this page shows a receipient wearing it both ways.


Perhaps this more detailed pic shows why it might be inverted. THe MOH started with a navy MOH, and the useof an achor might've required the star to be invereted

The Nazi´s inverted the ancient swastika symbol to create the "hooked cross"(?) - and I guess everyone feels the (negative) power associated with it.

The swatskia orignally was supposed to represent the sunwheel, or the sun itself, adn thus power and the like. By reveresing its direction that nazis were saying that they were even more powerful.

I think that sincethe aussie police badge also has an inverted star that its probably got a usage outside of satanism.

The pentagram wasn't a satanic symbol until the mid 1900's, the medal of honor was created long before that. To associate the medal of honor with a satanic symbol is ridiculous.

I think an upside down pentagram would go hand in hand with the highest honor of killing others.


Military = Killing Others.

Killing Others = Doing a good deed for humanity.

Doing a good deed for humanity. = Satanism.

Let's face it folks,

Every deed is evil
Every shape is satanic
Every organisation is hell bent on world domination
Every secret is bad one
Every act is of pure selfishness
Every child is born the antichrist
Every one is evil, satanic, selfish, bad or an anarchist.

The whole word is doomed, lets have a party, be friends, be merry and watch ourselfs grow horns turn read and gain a fetish for flames.

The Metal of Honor is one of many Satanic and evil symbols on display, hidden in the open. The gift of knowledge was taken or given to the Masons, much like the tale of Adam and Eve. They have historically spread their message through socialism, terrorism, and literal Witch hunts.
They have had to change their name many times throughout history. Currently they are most commonly known as the Republican Party.
Their goal is to enslave the human race. Our government requires obedience... Don't think, just do what they've told you to do. Don't question authority, and assume they've got your interests in mind: while they send you and your friends off to die... while they take away freedoms and tell you to feel safer because of it... while they manipulate the world markets and convince us to stop living the way we want to... while they feed only encourage mindless entertainment, mindless education... and spend $800,000,000,000 on things no one can see.

The MAJORITY of Americans, are already slaves, who worship the dollar more than ANYTHING else.

OK. Let's try to use common sense.
The simple jump-the-gun explanation is that it's satanic. I highly doubt that the creators, with the Civil War ripping up the country, wanted to giggle at squeezing in a satanic symbol onto a medal. We only equate upside down stars with satanic beliefs because we have been trained in a way to do so. We see them in horror flicks, painted on empty buildings by idiots, the Church of Satan hangs it up, witchcraft books use it, etc. Like the swastika it doesn't always mean what we first think of when we see it. If I draw a pentagram on my head does it make me satanic? No. If people see me like that and don't know me will they think I'm satanic? Probably, it's the easiest answer.
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. The home 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....
So...it 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 Medal of Honor is just one of many occult symbols in use in America. Battle ribbons, military regalia, insignia, and vehicle decals are all laced with sigils and magic symbolism which is intended to give the wearer cosmic powers beyond the average mortal.

Even the Pentagon, America's defense headquarters, was constructed to harness the occult powers of protection through the inverted pentagram. Additionally, Air Force One is the aviation caravan for the President, and in order to 'protect' him, the five F16 fighter jets accompanying the passenger jet fly in a pentagon formation—one in front, two at the wings, and two at the tail section.

Also, the Oval Office is not semi-circular by accident. Sigil magic is everywhere you find power, influence and money. The information control matrix, the MSM, uses circle sigils and concentric semi-circles at the start and throughout the duration of every news broadcast.

The common man didn't invent these things, nor would he use them. The elite hold the answer. Unless you employ occult power, you cannot rub elbows with the movers & shakers—the power brokers—and you have no chance of ascending the ladder of privilege and power.

(EDIT: I apologize for dredging up an old post, but I was standing in line at the post office today and noticed overt displays of occult symbolism, and a US postage stamp for the Medal of Honor. My google search led me here.)

An then there is the Pentagon.
5 sided structures and symbols have traditionally been associate with defence.
Probably because the hand or "armament" is five fingered. The hand being the oldest weapon and the handshake or friendly wave designed to show the hand did not hold a weapon and that you are a friend, not a foe.

If Satan himself were handing out medals? I'm sure
it wouldn't be much different from this.

Apart from the overt usage of the pentagram, the Medal of Honor also features an embossed depiction of Athena and Minerva. Others show Athena only. Athena is most certainly the 'goddess' of America, with the owl symbolism, Nike, Minerva, as well as Apollo.

At the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial, a gold statue depicts the goddes Nike holding the stephanas crown over the heads of American soldiers.

America was founded upon pagan rites, esoteric knowledge, gnostic elitism, the worship of pagan deities, while wearing a thin veneer of Christian pageantry to appear legitimate.

'Lady Liberty' is also interrelated. She has many names: Hecate, Isis, Ishtar, Diana, Athena, Semiramis, Ashtoreth, etc.
