The Meaning Of V

The historical foundation of the V for Victory symbol is firmly rooted in the stirring spirit of ordinary French people who risked deportation, concentration camps and death in merely expressing their symbolic resistance to being occupied by the Nazis during World War Two.

After the Nazi occupation of France, Victor Auguste de Laveleye, former Belgian minister of Justice and director of the Belgian French-speaking broadcasts on the BBC, picked up on the V’s that were already being scrawled all over Paris by frustrated French citizens demonstrating their opposition to their new slave masters, and devised a massive allied propaganda campaign that would use the V symbol against the Nazis as an act of psychological warfare.

During a radio broadcast, Laveleye explained the power behind the symbol.

“[T]he occupier, by seeing this sign, always the same, infinitely repeated, [would] understand that he is surrounded, encircled by an immense crowd of citizens eagerly awaiting his first moment of weakness, watching for his first failure.”

The V symbol was then adapted by Churchill in his familiar hand salutes, and subsequently broadcast in the form of morse code to French listeners of Radio Londres, a station broadcast by the Free French forces into occupied France. The audible V was made up of the first four notes of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, which were meant to represent fate knocking at one’s door – another act of psychological warfare against the Nazis given the fact that Beethoven was German.

The radio station’s purpose was to counter the propaganda of the Vichy collaborators and the Nazis, while at the same time passing on messages to the French Resistance and encouraging the spirit of resistance amongst the general population as a whole.

The launch of the Infowars V For victory campaign is partly a tribute to resistance movements throughout the ages who against all odds have stood up against tyranny. It is also about sending a message to Homeland Security and the new world order in general that we will not meekly accept the destruction of America and its replacement with a decaying banana republic in which people are told to inform on each other and a country in which anyone who exercises their constitutional rights or criticizes the state is labeled a terrorist, which is exactly the case in the DHS’ own internal documents.

This is about re-asserting the fact that our lives are led by the pursuit of freedom, prosperity and happiness – the American dream – and not by fear, division and intimidation. This is about sending a message to the American people that we should stand united against the abuses of big government, not become tattle-tales for the state.

Criticisms are inevitable with any campaign we launch and indeed the Infowars team had already discussed several of the points that subsequently emerged before we even began the campaign.

– The guy that shot up the school board painted a big V on the wall before threatening people with a gun.

The gunman, 56-year-old Clay Duke, spray-painted a V within a circle, and was clearly influenced to do so by the 2004 movie V For Vendetta. Indeed, Duke’s own Facebook page confirmed he was a fan of the movie. As we have repeatedly stated, our campaign has nothing to do with this movie, it is influenced by the spirit of the French Resistance in their struggle against Nazi occupation during the early 1940′s. This is not V for Vendetta – our inspiration is the V for Victory campaign which was adopted by the allies as a psychological warfare tactic against the Nazis, having been started by members of the frustrated occupied French who wanted to express their symbolic resistance against the Nazis.

Any establishment media mouthpiece that attempts to link our campaign with Clay Duke is insulting the legacy of thousands of French fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, who were sent to Nazi death camps, had their heads chopped off with axes, or were massacred by German troops for standing up against occupation.

– Why are you siding with the French Resistance? They were all communists.

This charge has been leveled by people who spent five minutes doing a cursory google search and clicking on a couple of Wikipedia links. Anyone who reads a proper history book concerning the period, such as the acclaimed The Resistance by Matthew Cobb, will discover that the French Resistance comprised of people from numerous political persuasions, from leftists, to right-wingers, from union workers to business owners, to ordinary citizens. Indeed, the man who later became the ideological figurehead of the French Resistance, General Charles de Gaulle, was an extremely conservative individual.

In modern-day political parlance, the Gaullist label is often attributed to a leading political party or movement in France that is said to “transcend the left/right rift” and is characterized as populist.


– The V is an occult symbol and Infowars/Prison Planet/Alex Jones is part of the illuminati conspiracy.

As a poster on our Facebook page commented, at some stage in history every symbol has been hijacked by one occult or evil group for their own purposes. The inverted Nazi swastika began as far back as 4,000 BC and was later used by numerous Asian religions and traditions before being hijacked by the 3rd Reich. The meaning of the symbol draws on the motivation behind the message. We have also likened the V symbol to a pyramid turned upside down – this doesn’t mean we are working for the illuminati. We are reclaiming the V for Victory symbol and using it in the spirit of the French Resistance of the 1940′s – it has no other connotation for our purposes.

As one of our readers commented, “V For Victory. You couldn’t have come up with a better symbol if you tried. You have subconsciously suggested, ironically, an upturned Illuminati, New world order pyramid symbol? You’ve created an anti Illuminati logo.”

– What’s the point in posting V flyers everywhere? it won’t achieve anything.

Why did the occupied French write V’s everywhere in Paris and other areas of France? Why did the successful allies devise a huge psychological warfare campaign to use the V symbol against the Nazis? This is not just about waking up the general public, it’s about connecting with the people inside the system who do the legwork for the new world order agenda. We are already getting emails (1,2) from people within Homeland Security and the Federal Reserve who are rebelling against their bosses because of our work and others like us.

In addition, if posting messages is completely pointless, why does Homeland Security spend millions placing video messages at Wal-Mart checkouts telling Americans to spy on each other? If it had no effect, why would they bother? The modern day equivalent of the Vichy traitors (the Obama administration) is indoctrinating the sheeple to police each other, they’re coercing obedience to the state. Our campaign uses the exact same tactic but with the opposite message – we are coercing freedom and liberty.

Now that we have expanded on the motivations behind the V For Victory campaign, we look forward to a flood of people participating in this new outreach by printing off the V For Victory flyers or using one of the dozens of excellent alternatives created by fans, and posting them throughout their local community.

Remember – You Are The Resistance!

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
