The Catcher in the Rye (1951) J.D. Salinger, is a novel about a young man named Holden Caufield. The story is about his “adventures” after he is expelled from school. He gets in a fight with a former schoolmate for example. The entire time Holden is seen as a pure individual. He pays a prostitute to spend time with him but doesn’t want sex. He worries about graffiti that children might see. He entertains thoughts of committing murder. He rants against the evils of society and decides to move away and live in rural seclusion. In the end of the story he makes up with his former girlfriend and decides to stay and attend a different school.
Mark David Chapman had a copy of the book with him when he shot John Lennon. John Hinckley Jr had a copy in his hotel room found after he attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan. Robert John Bardo shot actress Rebecca Schaeffer and tossed his copy onto the roof of an adjacent building as he made his escape.
The three of these perpetrators not only had copies of the book, according to investigators and psychologists, they obsessed over it. Mark David Chapman wanted to change his name to Holden.
These events turned into a conspiracy theory about the FBI and MK Ultra brainwashing using Salinger’s novel (conspiracytheories). Some people believed if one read this book they might turn into a zombie murderer.
The truth is that a handler used those men to commit the crimes. This man (the handler) got out of his body and clung to the perpetrators’ back, putting his thoughts into the one he was handling. The individual being handled may not have been aware of it. The handler is like an actor, pretending to be the person he is handling yet having an agenda to impose on the person’s mind. He also has a set of thoughts to rationalize the different murders.
These thoughts can be the handler‘s actual thoughts or completely made up. In the instance of John Lennon the point was to kill someone who preached peace and would make starting a race war more difficult. The reason Chapman killed him in his own mind was because John Lennon said in an interview “the Beatles are more popular than Jesus.”
Using the Catcher in the Rye is significant. The fascist controllers don’t like the book or it’s author. The ability to get their subject to read the book and having it present at the different murders is like a tag – bragging rights for the handler who used these men.
The handler was able to influence them to read, and become obsessed with, the novel. He was also able to get them to murder. There was no FBI plot; the fascist controllers probably invented the theory themselves. They put the conspiracy idea in a book or online knowing people will run with it. Demonizing democracy and the government they aspire to take over fits their game plan.
Shmuel 1 (1 Samuel) 9 And an evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, and he was sitting in his house, with his spear in his hand, and David was playing with his hand. 10 And Saul attempted to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away from before Saul, and Saul drove the spear into the wall, but David fled and escaped on that night
This man is Werner Baumbach (27 December 1916 – 20 October 1953), a German pilot of the Luftwaffe in World War II. He was in the Hitler Youth as a child. Baumbach was decorated for his bombing missions against allied shipping and warships and received an appointment to the Luftwaffe High Command.
After the war he was tried for war crimes and and released with too little evidence. He became an advisor to Harvard historian Bruce C Hopper on his studies of World War II. He then became and advisor to the Argentine Air Force.
He wrote several books. One, The Life and Death of the Luftwaffe (1967 Ballantine Books) was critical of the German High Command. In particular he cited their failure to listen to the officers warnings of the way events were unfolding on the German loss of WWII.
Baumbach died in 1953, crashing while testing a British Lancaster bomber in Argentina.
This man is Mark David Chapman (born May 10, 1955). Chapman’s father was a US Air Force staff sergeant. He worked as YMCA children’s counselor and at two refugee centers. He was a fan of the novel “The Catcher in the Rye” by JD Salinger. He had an emotional breakdown and moved to Hawaii. It has been noted that he struggled with mental health problems for most of his life, including psychosis and depression. He is said to have considered suicide on several occasions.
On the 8th of December, 1980 Chapman shot and killed John Lennon of The Beatles. Hard to start a race war with all those darn peace loving hippie types running around. Insulting the gods of the High Command had got him programmed to be a sacrificial assassin. Chances are they thought he’d be executed for the crime and they could take him back to Mordor.
