Detroit Satanists’ ‘Call To Arms’: Mind-Control Ritual Abuse Victims’ Evil Trigger
Satan worshippers’ “called to arms” in Detroit Saturday night, by unveiling an 8-foot-tall bronze statue featuring a goat-headed Satan during a gathering billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” included Satanic Ritual Abuse survivor triggers, the type that can result in victim pain and community violence.
The Satanic Temple said Saturday’s private event was open only to people with tickets, $25 each. Invitations to “The Unveiling” summoned guests to prepare for “a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery… Come dance with the Devil and experience history in the making.” The event location was not announced publicly and was known only to those with tickets.
At 11:30pm last night, the Satanic Temple unveiled the one-ton statue at an industrial building near the Detroit River as supporters cheered: “Hail Satan.” Some of the hundreds in attendance rushed to pose for photos.
The bronze Baphomet monument, that weighs about one ton and had never been seen in public, “is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action.” The statue, backed by an inverted pentagram and flanked by statues of two young children gazing up at the creature, shows Satan with horns, hooves, wings and a beard.
The group had said the unveiling event “will serve as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats.”
Increasingly, Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) and Satanic Ritualistic Abuse (SRA) cases are being reported in the psychotherapeutic community. It is “becoming increasingly clear that perhaps the most demanding treatment aspects of such cases concern the problems posed by what is known as ‘cult programming;” according to S.M.A.R.T., the nation’s largest ritual abuse survivor support group. There were signs that the recent Lafayette theater gunman was possibly involved in Satanic ritual abuse.
Cult Control Programming
1). Reporting Programs
Patients are conditioned to routinely contact and report back to the cult. These programs may be time-triggered (every month, full moon, etc.), date-triggered (i.e.., corresponding to cult “holidays”, etc.), or situationally triggered (i.e.., host personality enters therapy, reveals cult “secrets,” etc.). Such programs keep the cult updated on the patient’s daily life, as well as with the ongoing work in therapy. Further, specific intelligence information may be gathered about the therapist and treatment facility, and reported back to the cult.
Particularly prevalent with such conditioning are several layers of back-up reporting programs. Of course, along with back-up programs will come a large contingent of back-up reporting alters. Never assume you’ve found all the reporting alters in the patient’s system. Always assume that reporting exists.
2). Access Programs
This refers to cult access into the survivors’ personality system. These programs allow the cults to access the patient’s personality system through specific (usually cult-created) alters. This access is achieved through a large variety of triggers, including whistles, electronic tones, spoken phrases, touch, etc. Once accessed, a myriad of other programs may be triggered and/or reinforced by the cult.
3). Return Programs (Call Backs)
Such programs are designed to manipulate patients to return to the cult for rituals and/or further programming or to “escape” from therapy. The patient may be conditioned to respond to phone cues, to follow a specific contact cult member upon sight, and/or to meet a cult “contact” at a predetermined location (i.e.., “safe house”).
4). Reminder-Reinforcement Programs
May be used as a “reminder” of the patient’s “vows” to the larger cult or subordinate coven. These are programs often enacted via phone or touch triggers (e.g.., three series of three taps on shoulder or knee, a rapid series of six electronic tones, spoken phrases, etc.). Program triggers frequently include “gifts” from the cult given during childhood (e.g.., stuffed animals, music boxes, etc.). Visually, certain colors may also serve the same purpose. Cult-related colors (particularly red, purple and black) are commonly presented to the survivor in the form(s) of a cult-contact’s apparel, a letter or envelope, etc. These programs appear to be primarily designed to re-install fear and cult compliance.
Not uncommonly, a survivor may be triggered to compulsively engage in degrading or self-injurious activities so as to reinforce a variety of other “in place” cult conditioned responses.
Therapy Interference Programming
1). Scrambling Programs
These are programs intended to confuse, disorganize and/or block the patient’s alter system, emerging memories, thought processes, and/or incoming information. Often, the cult programmer’s specific alters are designated to perform this function (e.g.., “The Scrambler”). Reduced ability to “switch,” speak, write, draw, read, and/or remember previous sessions/work are potential tip-offs to the enactment of a scrambling program. Such programs may specifically target the therapist. For example, incoming words and/or visual images of the therapist may be scrambled/garbled. Often, the effect will be that the survivor experiences the therapist as looking and/or sounding threatening, abandoning, or incompetent.
2). Flooding Programs
The cult enacts such programs to interfere with therapeutic progress/process by overwhelming the patient, triggering the patient with a flood of painful and frightening cognitive and/or somatic memories entering consciousness simultaneously, thereby significantly increasing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomotology and suppressing the patient’s functionality. A wide variety of triggers may be utilized.
3). Recycle Programs — (Ray & Reagor, 1991)
These programs act to quickly re-dissociate memories which the therapist has worked to abreact and re-associate. The therapist may return the next day to find he/she must redo the work from the previous therapy session. Such programs must be neutralized before the re-dissociated material may be effectively re-associated.
4). Cover Programs — (Ray & Reagor, 1991)
Similar to “screen memories;” these are programmed memories laid in by the cult to distract from, or distort, the true ritual abuse memory. A secondary purpose of these programs is to discredit the survivor’s memories with “unbelievable” content. For example, a ritual involving pain and “medical” paraphernalia might be “covered” with a memory of UFO abduction and experimentation.
5). Verbal Response Programs
These are programs designed to provide “acceptable” answers to cult-related, system-related or alter-related inquiries which may be posed by the therapist or other non-cult supportive persons. Such responses will have been extensively (and painfully) “rehearsed” by the patient and cult programmer.
6). Silence-Shutdown Programs
When enacted, such programs will cause the patient to “stop talking” — to cease revealing information to the therapist or non-cult supportive other. Though such programs may be triggered through a wide variety of modalities, enactment via self-touch triggers are particularly common. Some shutdown programs will be directed toward specific alters, while others are meant for the system in general.
7). Nightmare-Night Terror Programs
Similar to flooding programs, patients are conditioned to become overwhelmed with terrifying images/memories while asleep. Such programs are deeply ingrained and appear to be primarily used for punishment. They serve to keep the patient run-down and fatigued. Often, nightmare programs are triggered or tripped automatically when processing “forbidden” material in therapy.
8). Isolation Programs
Isolation programs may have intra-system or extra-system applications. Within the system, alters may be walled-off (via amnestic barriers) from cooperative alters by cult-loyal alters. Beyond the system, patients may be conditioned to withdraw socially, isolating themselves from helpful resources, etc.
9). Pain Programs
Patients might be conditioned to re-experience physical pain of their abuse memories. Generally used as punishment, pain programs may also be enacted to “motivate” the survivor to conduct other programmed injunctions. Such conditioning might be specifically/intentionally triggered by cult, or automatically tripped when processing “forbidden” material in therapy. Electroshock pain appears to be a favorite cult-programmer method for this particular conditioning paradigm.
10). Rapid Switching Programs
Once enacted, a patient might not be able to complete a sentence without switching three to four times between alters, creating obvious functionality problems. This type of conditioning appears to have been programmed via rapid presentation of preconditioned alter-triggers during the original programming session. The entire original programming experience is then paired with a neutral trigger.
11). Miscellaneous Therapy Interference Programs
Other types of programs observed in SRA survivors designed to interfere with therapy include conditioning the patient to: (1) not see, (2) not think for self, (3) stay distracted, and (4) become resistant, mistrustful, and/or obnoxious toward the therapist.
