Why do McDonald's mascots seem to resemble mass murderers and serial killers?


(NaturalNews) I just couldn't shake the creepiness of the new Happy Meal mascot introduced a couple of weeks ago: the image stuck in my head for days. But then I remembered that McDonald's has always used bizarre, almost nightmarish characters for possibly that precise reason -- they linger in your mind whether you've invited them there or not.

As I pondered some of the more strange and horrifying characters used by McDonald's -- Grimace, the Hamburglar, etc. -- it suddenly dawned on me just how closely some of these characters resemble serial killers and mass murderers.

I'm sure this is entirely coincidental but it's spooky nonetheless. Check out the striking similarities between three well-known McDonald's mascot characters and three infamous killers that still haunt America's memory...

James Holmes and Ronald McDonald

James Holmes is the alleged mass murder who officials say shot up movie theaters in Colorado, killing and wounding dozens of people.

His red hair, pale skin, hiked-up eyebrows and overall blank, soulless expression are nearly a perfect match for Ronald McDonald, the clown that was invented for the sole purpose of influencing children to demand more processed, factory-made food from their parents.

Put Holmes in a clown costume and even little kids would probably point at him and scream, "It's Ronald McDonald!"

Jared Lee Loughner and Grimace

Jared Lee Loughner is the alleged shooter of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle "Gabby" Giffords. This level of deep, soulless evil seems a perfect match for the McDonald's character known as "Grimace" who was first introduced as "Evil Grimace" in 1971.

In his first rendition, Evil Grimace had two pairs of arms that he used to engage in the evil crime of stealing milkshakes. Click here to see rare video footage of the original Evil Grimace.

Grimace's character was softened over the years, transforming him into a friendly sidekick. I very much doubt Jared Lee Loughner will ever be a friendly sidekick, however.

John Wayne Gacy and Mayor McCheese

John Wayne Gacy was convicted of the sexual assault and murder or 33 young boys. He was known as the "Killer Clown," as he also enjoyed parading around as an entertainment clown (allowing him easy access to young boys). (See photo below).

Gacy was executed by lethal injection in 1994.

Mayor McCheese was introduced by McDonald's as a bumbling, incompetent bureaucrat / aristocrat with an enormous cheeseburger as his head.

Technically, McDonald's is knowingly engaged in the mass killing of conscious beings

Even writing this article made me feel a little sick. It may seem like tabloid news at first, but there's a legitimate connection here: McDonald's demands the mass slaughter of millions of cows and chickens each year as part of its core business model. It's not just the slaughter that bothers me; it's the way in which these animals tend to be raised in cruel, cramped environments.

Maybe that's why the undercurrent of murder seems ever-present in McDonald's characters: Try as they might, they can't wash the murderous intent out of their corporate culture. Regardless of the branding and advertising efforts, McDonald's is and always will be a restaurant that serves up enormous quantities of dead animal flesh... and therefore must kill all those animals first.

In truth, McDonald's is very much a mass animal murder factory that seems to have no compassion for all for the lives of those animals. Cows, chickens and pigs, by the way, are conscious beings who all have memories, decision-making skills, social structure and complex experiences. To raise them in cruel conditions in order to maximize corporate profits is inexcusably inhumane. Why doesn't McDonald's follow the path of Chipotle and at least attempt to make life a little more bearable for these animals before slaughtering them?

McDonald's and GMOs

McDonald's is also steeped in GMOs -- a deadly technology that threatens the very sustainability of global agriculture. By serving foods made with genetically engineered ingredients, McDonald's is financially supporting Monsanto and the entire biotech industry -- an industry widely considered to be the "most evil" industry in the world, even more so than industries of war.

Maybe this is the real reason we're all grimacing: we see right through the fake propaganda of the McDonald's corporation and into the reality of what the company stands for: the murder and death of animals and the feeding of GMO poisons to the public (yes, every grain of genetically modified corn contains an insecticide poison).

This stands in great contrast to food chains like Chipotle, which coincidentally was catapulted into success by McDonald's. Chipotle seems to be working hard to fight against cruel animal conditions while working to one day eliminate all GMOs from its food supply.

While Chipotle actually seems to be trying to do the right thing with its food ingredients, McDonald's would rather just distract you with stupid characters that paint a false picture of happiness for a corporation steeped in mass death and creepy child influence tactics.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
