Im sure most of you have noticed his fixation with red. especially at the really important functions. isnt that at least a little unusual given he is a democrat? you see biden with the blue tie on, and it makes sense. Anyone whos more in the know about symbolism and this subject give me some insight as to what the symbolic meaning is behind this?
thanks!

Black and red bisected symbolism

The red-and-black flag is the symbol of the anarcho-syndicalist and anarcho-communist movements. Black is the traditional color of anarchism, and red is the traditional color of socialism. The red-and-black flag combines the two colors in equal parts, with a simple diagonal split. Typically, the red section is placed on the top-left corner, with the black on the bottom-right corner of the flag. This symbolizes the co-existence of anarchist and socialist ideals within the anarcho-syndicalism movement, and to symbolize the more socialistic means of the movement leading to a more anarchistic end.


The CNT-FAI's version of the red-and-black flagOne of the most famous variations of the anarcho-syndicalist flag is that of Spain's Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (National Confederation of Labor, CNT), which still exists today. The CNT, along with the Federación Anarquista Ibérica (Iberian Anarchist Federation, FAI), a major militant faction within the CNT, was a major player in the popular anarchist movements in Spain of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This group has its own version of the red-and-black flag with its initials on the flag. CNT is in the red, while FAI is in the black – the color of anarchy – as the FAI was founded in 1927 to keep the CNT dedicated to anarchist principles.


Black and Red Africa - Zabalaza Federation's logoAnother variation on the red-and-black theme is the red-and-black Africa used mostly by the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Federation (ZACF or ZabFed), a federation of anarchist groups in South Africa. ZabFed was inspired by the Organisational Platform of the Libertarian Communists. ZabFed members share a basic agreement in terms of theoretical and tactical unity, collective responsibility, and federalism as suggests by the Platform. In historical terms the Platformist tradition starts with The Organizational Platform of the Libertarian Communists, and in the post-war period many include documents like the Georges Fontenis' pamphlet Manifesto of Libertarian Communism.

The symbolism of a united Africa, displayed in traditional anarchist communist colours, is an important one, as a mixture of different demographic groups are represented by Zalabaza in the midst of a societal environment that is otherwise tense with post-colonial racial and sexual issues.




I read this somewhere on the internet.

Remember the Black Widow Dress on Election night?

Remember the way the daughters were dressed?

You forgot to mention the green dress Pelosi is wearing.

It's probably to disguise the color of her scales.




Notice how Mr. Lizard's dark suit makes his skin appear green?
Do ya see it?

That is tripped out. I was just watching the address to congress with my brother and we were commenting on how the whole time it felt as if we were getting brainwashed with all of their "techniques", and way of speaking. Then we laughed at Nancy Pelosi when she said 500 million Americans will loose their jobs, and how Biden said he was a Zionist but he doesn't have to be a jew.

Then we noticed that his tie was flashing some kind of pattern, but no other tie flashed the same way. It could just be my t.v. but it is funny on how it was flashing, making our heads hurt.... Obama's tie....

OMG President Obama is wearing the color red! He must be a member of the illuminati. Maybe he represents the devil because red can be attributed to hell. You are reaching my friend.

I also think 9/11 was an inside job. I believe in Aliens and Atlantis.

That should make you cringe.

Well, that part when everything got real quiet at around 10pm EST, I seriously thought he was about to call for a one world currency to solve everything and have America start a NWO.

too early yet for that. He'll cover that in his next address to congress.
I wonder what was up with pelosi tonight every other time i have seen her on tv she never blinks and tonight it seemed like she couldn't stop! And what was up with her and the standing ovation? seems like she was having a contest with someone behind the camera and she was trying to beat them to be the first to rise And it looked like Joe "don't mess with me" Biden kept falling asleep

I think its healthy to question ..well everything. it doesnt mean that everything is a "conspiracy" but it leaves room for that possibility.

Knights of Malta



Nazi




There's more to it, this is just a sample.

There's also a ton of street gangs who use these colors and symbols too.

This goes all the way back to atlantis though, Plato speaks of the stone quarried from under Atlantis; “one kind of stone was white, another black, and a third red”.

The OP almost got it, pointing out that Biden (and many other Democrats) like to wear blue ties. Likewise, many republicans wear red ties. This shows part affiliation. Obama goes with red to send the message that he's governing from the center, isn't a liberal, and is trying to work with the GOP to find legislation that they can all agree on.

The red tie is a subtle, subconscious way of saying: "I'm not a Democrat."
