Prime Minister Theresa May has found herself in the middle of a bizarre internet conspiracy theory involving claims of a secret EU Illuminati society.
Mrs May used the hand signal – already frequently used by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker – on July 11 when speaking at Westminster before her elevation to 10 Downing Street.
The hand signal is listed on the illuminati hand signs conspiracy theory website illuminatiRex and described as a ‘Merkel-Raute’.
The ‘Merkel-Raute’ is a reverse variation of the first illuminati ‘Roc Sign’ – roughly in the shape of a diamond or pyramid – used by celebrities such as actors, Denzel Washington, Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise
Users of the ‘Merkel-Raute’, as it has become known due to the German’s frequent use, have also included other European historical figures including Pope John Paul II and Adolf Hitler.
‘The pyramid is an important Illuminati symbol showing their few ruling the many on the bottom type power structure,’ the illuminatiRex website states.
