The Beatles’ Occult Connection and its Ramifications for the West

David Martin | The Daily Knight

While modern pop-culture is a moral plague of historic proportions that was largely fermented by the Beatles and their peers, it can’t be emphasized enough that this social ill was carefully charted by infernal forces behind the scene.

Before discussing today’s rock music it behooves us to take a look at the late Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), the early 20th century Satanist and founder of the Thelemic cult who significantly laid the groundwork for the youth-destruction that would mushroom in the latter part of the century. It was Crowley who set the stage for satanists like Anton LeVey and Kenneth Anger, author of the 1972 film “Lucifer Rising,” and who is known for his occult practice of sacrificing children in satanic rituals.

Sinister Plan to Pervert the Young

However, his attack on the young went beyond just killing their bodies. Crowley was obsessed with enticing young people to rebel God and worship Satan. He taught that each person is his "own supreme deity" and he sought to radicalize the youth by instilling in them the demonic maxim, “do whatever thou wilt.” To this end he pioneered the idea of mixing witchcraft, music, and drugs to better enhance his design of perverting the youth and his method was widely implemented after 1960.

Meanwhile, the satanic elites of Wicca and EMI Recording were brewing up a plan to take over the recording industry with the objective of doing away with fine, classical music recordings and replacing with degenerate ones. By 1960 the plan was ready to roll, and the plan was to drum up a new fad for the world: electric guitars, amplifiers, men with long hair, and drums pounding out rebellious rhythms. The new fad was carefully devised and put together by EMI Recording, a network of clandestine elites with ties back to Crowley.

IT WAS THE BEATLES that spearheaded this new revolutionary genre under EMI's direction. George Martin who headed a wing of EMI created the Beatles, who in turn led the way for rock bands of the future. The plan was to set a new beat for society and this plan was largely set in motion by John Lennon and the Beatles. They were created, bought, and groomed by these satanic elites behind the scene.

Lennon’s Adulation of Crowley

Of key significance is the fact that John Lennon idolized Aleister Crowley. In Lennon’s memoirs can be found sayings of Crowley including his famous rule of “do whatever thou wilt.” Crowley was Lennon’s mentor and hero and it was Lennon and the Beatles who carried forth Crowley’s legacy of corrupting the youth. The “Beatle-mania” of the early-mid sixties would mushroom with uncanny speed and force, which led to a swarm of other bands that followed the same effeminate ‘long-hair’ pattern – Byrds, Lovin Spoonful, Zeppelin, Black Sabbath – and together they fueled the plague of rock-music and drugs that would be the primary instrument of Satan to corrupt the youth and revolutionize the West.

Satanist Aleister Crowley whose face is also seen in the upper-left of the Sergeant Pepper's album cover

Aleister Crowley died in 1947 and twenty years later (May 1967) the Beatles released the Sergeant Pepper’s album as a tribute to Crowley. His picture is even portrayed on the front cover as one of the Beatles’ "heroes." Note the opening lyrics for the opening song:

"It was twenty years ago *today, Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play."

Sgt. Pepper is a fictitious name for Crowley. They're saying that Sgt. Pepper taught this band to play, i.e. how to behave and act, to be corrupt, etc. Corrupt behavior was the essence of Crowley's doctrine, which is why Lennon called his group Sergeant Pepper's Lonely-Hearts Club Band. The group consecrated themselves to Crowley and to his king, Satan. They were his band.

Youth Destruction Planned by Russia

Crowley’s work to pervert the young and overthrow moral authority directly ties with Lenin’s plan for starting revolution: “Corrupt the young: get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.”

According to former Soviet KGB propagandist Yuri Bezmenov who worked for the Soviet Union’s Novosti Press Agency until he defected in 1970, the main methods of subversion used by Marxists in the West were just that, to “corrupt the young, get them interested in sex, take them away from religion. Make them superficial and enfeebled … cause breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, self-restraint, faith in the pledged word.”

Leninist Revolution Applied to the Church

By the middle-late sixties, we indeed saw this new revolutionary wave of thought sweeping society, the worst of it being that this degenerate influence seeped into the Church and engendered the various youth ministries and the contemporary “guitar Mass,” an abomination replete with drums, tambourines, microphones and speakers, all of which were used to project rebellious overtones and lyrics to the faithful. The guitar Mass would serve to profane the Mass and set the faithful to the beat of a new gospel, from which would ensue dancing, clapping, women in shorts and indecent attire; and also men with earrings, long hair and ponytails—the classic marks of homosexuality—and with this the pacifist preaching about automatic mercy and forgiveness in spite of sin.

According to Bezmenov, a group of rock or pop-musicians with a message of ‘social-justice’ candy-coated with popular ‘spiritual’ tunes were more helpful to the KGB’s plan of subversion than a Marxist standing at the pulpit preaching Marxist-Leninist doctrine.

It was the Crowley-Lennon connection that played a key part in establishing this new mod of pop-culture, which the Communists then adopted as part of their ammunition against the Faith. This attack on the Church is part of a worldwide effort of satanists and globalists to dissolve Christianity and bring about a communistic one-world government dubbed today the “Great Reset.”

A Closer Look at John Lennon’s Satanic Connections

John Lennon’s connection with Crowley and Satan were the culmination of years of immoral behavior—immorality is what paves one’s way to the devil. Lennon was a disturbed lad who would spend his class time drawing belittling pictures of Christ hanging upside down. He was obsessed with trying to overturn Christ, which explains why the inverted cross (peace symbol) was his favorite insignia in life. According to renowned exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger, John Lennon sold his soul to the devil in 1960.

As a pastime he and the group would throw water-filled condoms at the faithful when they walked to Church on Sunday morning. One time Lennon urinated on three nuns as they walked under his balcony, after which he loudly proclaimed, "raindrops from heaven."

"They’re rude, they’re profane, they’re vulgar, and they’ve taken over the world,” said Beatles’ press officer Derek Taylor. “It’s as if they’d founded a new religion. They’re completely anti-Christ. I mean, I’m anti-Christ as well, but they’re so anti-Christ they shock me, which isn’t an easy thing [to do].” George Martin said of Lennon, "I believed that he was Satan himself at times." Consider John Lennon's own words concerning Christ: "Jesus, a garlic-eating, stinking little yellow, greasy fascist bastard catholic Spaniard." (A Spaniard in the Works, p.14, 1965)

Lennon here uses the word “Spaniard” interchangeably with “spanner,” which in England means “wrench.” “A spanner in the works" is equivalent to the American saying, "a wrench in the works." What Lennon was saying is that Jesus is the “Catholic Spaniard” who “wrenched our peace.” Lennon’s idea of peace was to surrender to the pleasure of sin and Christ’s call to put away sensual pleasure and embrace doctrine incited such hatred in Lennon that he spent his career lashing out against Christ, insisting that we give his own brand of “peace a chance.”

This spirit of blasphemy is reflected in many of his words and writings. In an interview with British journalist Maureen Cleave on March 4, 1966, John Lennon said: "Christianity will go, it will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that. I'm right and will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus."


At the root of Lennon’s disorder was his need to be a god or idol in the eyes of others. On May 18, 1968, Lennon summoned the other Beatles to a meeting at Apple Corps in London to announce that he was the living reincarnation of Jesus:

"I have something very important to tell you all. I am Jesus Christ. I am back again.”

The other Beatles were somewhat taken aback, but said nothing. Nobody cross-examined him, no one contested him. There was some muttering, then silence, until someone suggested the meeting be adjourned for lunch.

At the restaurant over lunch a man came up to John and said: “Really nice to meet you, how are you?” “Actually,” John replied, “I’m Jesus Christ.”

This is just one of many instances in which we saw Lennon trying to outshine Christ and deify himself. His pride coupled with his lyrical skills made him a suitable instrument of the devil to deceive and seduce. Demonic suggestion is much better received when transmitted through a pleasurable medium like music, especially when it’s base and sensual.


Lennon’s music was all about “revolution,” which is the title of one of the songs on the Beatles White Album, which was written at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi retreat in India that the Beatles and Mia Farrow attended. The album was all about bringing down the United States through revolution, which interestingly coincided with the date of the album’s release, November 22, 1968, marking the fifth anniversary of the assassination of JFK. Kennedy was eliminated by the global elite to prevent him from further exposing the communist plot to bring down America through revolution.

According to Paul McCartney, the heavy metal “Helter Skelter” song from their White Album was intended to symbolize the fall of the "Roman Empire," a pseudonym used by Lennon to reference the United States. Lennon always said that America was to him the (fallen) Roman Empire and that New York was the Rome of that empire. His life-long dream was to come to America to spearhead the revolution and bring about a state of Helter Skelter, signifying “chaos” or “disorderly haste.”

Lennon-Manson Connection

None less than the satanically possessed Charles Manson detected this and adopted the Beatles White Album as his most treasured item, claiming that it was the subliminal music from this album that programmed him to direct the Tate-La Bianca murders in Los Angeles in 1969. The "Helter Skelter" song was particularly influential, evidenced by the fact that the words Helter Skelter were scrawled in Tate’s blood across her refrigerator right after the killings. Manson went on record as idolizing the Beatles as “four angels from the Apocalypse,” insisting that the subliminal White Album was their master plan of revolution that he was called upon to execute.

Non-surprisingly, Lennon had connections with Charles Manson and had spent time at the Beverly Hills residence of rock-music producer Terry Melcher, the son of Doris Day, whose home would later become the residence of Sharon Tate where she was murdered by the Manson cult.

Former Beverly Hills home of Doris Day and her son Terry Melcher where John Lennon and the Beatles had partied and taken LSD in 1965.

Lennon was also a close friend and associate of Mia Farrow who played the key part in the film Rosemary's Baby, which was a quasi-template of the Sharon Tate murder that would be played out at her residence. The major difference was that Rosemary and her baby survived the abuse while Tate and her baby didn’t.

What is interesting is that Lennon was murdered at the famous Dakota House in New York where part of Rosemary's Baby was filmed in 1967. The movie was a cinema version of a satanic sacrifice in the womb that was directed by Tate's husband Roman Polanski, a satanic Hollywood elite. In the movie Rosemary gives birth to the Antichrist.

Satanic Prophecy of John Lennon’s Death

Lennon’s idol Crowley was into doing everything backwards, which provided a basis for Lennon to implement subliminal backward recordings into his music—the first ever to achieve this. His November 17, 1980 release, "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss" when played backwards, says: "666 is coming… we shot John Lennon” (Can be heard at the 3:27-3:40 mark) The song was part of Lennon’s Double Fantasy album that was recorded in late summer 1980 by Yoko Ono, a self-proclaimed witch.

John Lennon’s murderer Mark Chapman obtained the album and had it autographed by Lennon just hours before killing him. “Kiss, Kiss, Kiss” became Chapman’s favorite song and at one point he claimed that it was this song that programmed him to kill John Lennon. Chapman reportedly listened to this song more than any other song in his life.

John and Yoko apparently were in on the murder together. Lennon had offered himself as a sacrifice for the cult. The plan was to have him archived as a peace loving "martyr" to give credibility to his "revolution" and Chapman later enhanced this delusion by feigning apology for having killed this “innocent” man.

The 1969 Lennon-McCartney release “The Ballad of John and Yoko” was a demonically inspired prophecy of this planned murder so that people could later look back to it as prophetic “evidence” that Lennon was a “crucified” victim of peace. Consider the lyrics from the song:

"Christ, you know it ain’t easy. You know how hard it can be. The way things are going, they’re gonna crucify me."

Chapman initially claimed that he killed Lennon in retaliation for his statement about being ‘more popular than Jesus,’ but this was a lie and a satanically inspired attempt to frame Christians by making them look like they’re revenge-seeking hate mongers. This is why he initially went on record as being a “Christian.” However, his subsequent revelation about being programmed to kill John Lennon gave him away for what he truly was: a pawn of the devil. Fr. Ripperger believes that Chapman was possessed at the time of the murder.

Suffice to say, John Lennon’s connection with Satan and Aleister Crowley have had destructive consequences for society. Sin, perversion, and even murder are the fruits of engrossing oneself with rock and roll, especially “hard rock,” so it is hoped that the foregoing on John Lennon and the Beatles might encourage people to shun their brand of music or anything deriving from it.
