“Nobody likes a clown at midnight.” – Stephen King
On August 10, 2019, after learning of a bizarre police incident involving a clown on the seven-year anniversary of the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting, I found my syncy-sense tingling. I subsequently predicted that Joker’s Venice Film Festival premiere on August 31 and wide release date on October 4 would be days of violence. I was correct about the first date, which saw police using excessive force against protesters at Boston’s Straight Pride Parade (attended by at least a couple of men dressed as clowns, it should be noted), a knife attack in France that left one person dead and eight injured, and most synchromystically significant, a mass shooting in Texas that ended with eight dead and twenty-one injured. The Aurora incident of 2012 resonated in this case – the gunman’s rampage was put to a stop in the parking lot of a movie theater, and this was a day of intense, aurora-producing geomagnetic storms.
Joker’s advertised wide release is October 4, but Warner Brothers is allowing preshows in the U.S. on October 3 starting at 4:00 PM. This is now only a few days away, and I continue to stand by my prediction that violence will occur, though I am now leaning toward the 3rd rather than the 4th. Interestingly, the number of days between August 31 and October 3 is 33, a number of power to Freemasons, mystics, and occultists. (And possibly evil clowns – killer clown John Wayne Gacy was convicted and executed for the rape and murder of 33 victims.) Regions close to the 33rd parallel have had more than their fair share of high-profile violent events, which include the first shots of the Civil War fired at Fort Sumter, the first atomic blast at the Trinity site, and the assassinations of JFK and RFK. This latitude is one to watch closely for a Red Dawn event next weekend.
Something interesting I did not predict was that clowns and clown-related events would make the news repeatedly during this 33-day period. Here is a timeline of what I have encountered so far....
