The guy whose claim to fame is singing about how the Devil went down to Georgia is back in the news for making outrageous claims about another irrational belief.
The story begins with the recent Taco Bell commercial proclaiming the existence of the “Belluminati,” because they really know about the secrets of a dollar. The narrator talks about the connections between Taco Bell’s menu and the back of a $1 bill, saying things like, “20 items for a dollar, 20 steps on the Pyramid. Who’s really behind this?”
That ad must not have sat well with singer Charlie Daniels, who tweeted this in response:
Hey Taco Bell
The Illuminati is not a frivolous subject
— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) January 9, 2018
And before you write this off as a joke, Daniels has warned people about the Illuminati before.
… Daniels didn’t elaborate on his warnings to Taco Bell, but the musician, 81, has written about the Illuminati and “shadow governments” in the past. In a 2015 Facebook post, Daniels admitted that the idea of a such organizations are “hard for [him] to swallow,” but he didn’t rule out the possibility of a secret society operating “behind the scenes.”
“I do have some very deep suspicions about people who operate behind the scenes and have undue and unmerited influence in the halls of power of the international political scene,” Daniels admitted.
If he keeps talking like that, he’s totally gonna blow Arby’s cover. You know that chain is hiding something. How else could they possibly be in business?
