So as I may or may not have mentioned I live in Denver, the site of the upcoming Democratic National Convention. With that being said there is a renewed buzz about the conspiracy theory surrounding our fair airport. What’s that? You didn’t know there was a huge conspiracy about Denver International Airport (DIA)? I didn’t either till just recently to be honest with you. If you do a Google search for DIA Conspiracy you’ll get quite a few results, ok I don’t know that for sure but that’s what I heard. Not familiar with our fair airport? Let me show you what it looks like.
Nifty no? Yeah I’m not sure what the look was they were going for when they built this thing but this is what we ended up with. I’ve heard some people say that it’s supposed to represent the mountain skyline but this thing is out in the middle of nowhere so I don’t know that I buy that. There are other people who claim that DIA is designed to represent a swastika from the air. I don’t know how factual that is, I’ve only flown in and out of there a handful of times and the times that I have I didn’t see it. Again I’d like to think that they’d have noticed that when designing the place. I guess that’s the point of a conspiracy theory, there are no coincidences it’s all intentional.
Ok after some research and a check of Google Maps it does sort of look like a swastika but you kind of have to use your imagination. The biggest thing about the conspiracy comes from inside the airport though from the weird murals to the capstone and various other oddities which we’ll get into in a bit. My Dad actually helped to construct DIA, he was assigned to Concourse A and he said that from day one there was a weird vibe about the place. From rumors of an Indian burial ground on the property to secret rooms in the concourse, you weren’t allowed to even go to the bathroom without an escort. One of these days I’ll sit down with him and a recorder and have him tell the tales because he does it much better than I do.
Ok enough about that let’s get to the weird stuff. One of the biggest issues for conspiracy nuts is the capstone I mentioned earlier. Here’s a pic.
The big red flag on this one is just above this text, the Masonic symbol and the mention of the New World Airport Commision. Here’s another shot of the capstone
Me personally? I don’t know much about the whole thing, just what I’ve read on line but I gotta admit the whole New World Order thing does sound kind of menacing. I wasn’t aware of this but evidently there are gargoyles inside the airport too! Don’t believe me? Check the babies out!
If I opened my luggage and saw this I’d probably crap my pants! Evidently though there are several of these in the baggage claim areas. Why?
In case you can’t read the tiny print there it says “Notre Denver features two cast bronze gargoyles one each located in the East and West baggage claim areas. The gargoyles, roughly the size of a fifth-grade boy are seated inside suitcases. Historically, gargoyles were placed on buildings to protect the site. These are placed slightly above the travelers heads to oversee and ensure that baggage will arrive safely at DIA”
When I think of safety I know the first thing to pop into my head are creepy gargoyles popping out of my luggage! Speaking of creepy, let’s get into the murals painted in DIA.These are truly weird, if you haven’t seen these, and I’m guessing most of you haven’t, spend some time looking over the details on these.
This one’s titled “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” Huh? Dead kid’s in coffins, buildings on fire and animals in boxes represents peace and harmony? Okay!
There was supposedly more to the mural but it’s been painted over, again I don’t know how truthful that is but it’s a pretty widespread rumor around these parts.
This is all I’m gonna cover for right now because there are a couple of men in dark suits knocking on my door so if this is my last post I’d just like to say……….hey what are you guys doing in here? What? No don’t……!
