He is similarly fervent on his belief that Holocaust denialism should be taught in schools. And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history? In , the Independent watched Icke deliver a lecture to a rapturous crowd of 6, people and reported that Icke had sold more than , copies of his books in the UK.
He has embarked on multiple world tours and reliably sold out his venues. And the industry tracker Nielsen BookScan told Vox that between and December , Icke has sold a combined , copies of his books in the US.
However, it does indicate that Icke has a reliable audience for his work, and that his audience has continued to grow. But over the past few years, as widely disseminated conspiracy theories have helped usher in the rise of far-right populist nationalism, figures like Icke have come to seem actively dangerous.
If Icke can convince people that the world is run by a cabal of mostly Jewish lizard people who are molesting and murdering kids — well, who knows what his followers will do with that belief? Which makes it all the more unnerving when a figure as beloved as Alice Walker endorses him, and has now done so via a platform as big as the New York Times. For her entire public life, Alice Walker has stood for social justice and for great writing.
At Ms. Magazine in the s, Walker helped rediscover and revive the legacy of Zora Neale Hurston. Until now. Walker has long been a vocal critic of Israel and its treatment of Palestine.
And when she began to show an interest in David Icke, things got weird. Walker first began to write about Icke in The deconstruction of language is breathtaking, the interrogation of symbols startling. Magical, in a way. She wrote:. The Reptilian space beings whose hybrid part human, part reptile descendants make our lives hell in Paradise were blue eyed devils to Malcolm X, the devil himself to my Christian parents, who never talked about eye color, which I think was not only prudent but wise, although they seemed clear enough about his sex, and as demons in many other religions, including the non-religion, Buddhism, where the advice is often to invite them in until they go away.
But maybe these were other kinds of demons. Not the ones controlling not just you, but everything. Walker has since endorsed Icke numerous times on her blog, and even recommended an interview he did with Alex Jones , who also promotes racist conspiracy theories, in For the record: They do not! Are Goyim us meant to be slaves of Jews, and not only That, but to enjoy it?
I struggled to get through the first part. Too many details, names, dates, and historical stuff for my brain to digest or hold its interest. The overall ideas and societal, spiritual, human and psychological elements, on the other h This was such a mixed experience for me.
The overall ideas and societal, spiritual, human and psychological elements, on the other hand, I was very interested in. And I do believe, intuitively, that much of what Icke is pointing to has truth and validity. And that there are a lot of pawns and scapegoats in this play, that have no idea what they are doing or what role they have been assigned. I also believe that what Icke writes in the second half of the book, about how we can set ourselves free, how we are all One, how Love and Respect is the answer to the worlds problems.
And the way Icke writes about this, I felt a strong resonant twitch and leap of joy in my heart, as I read it. More so than in the first part of the book. Whatever that might mean. Sep 19, Daniel Mihai Popescu rated it really liked it.
Don't underestimate Mr. Icke, I feel he's right. Anyway this book is nonfiction and the facts are all corroborate with logic and different other sources. Mar 21, Hatebeams rated it really liked it. One of Icke's better early books. All the core information is here, sans the Reptoid elite, which is a pity as that's the tastiest part. David still manages to end on a positive note, bless 'im. The truth shall set you free Jun 08, Thordur added it.
Well it took me a long time to read this one, a year or more. That is because there is so much material in this book and lots of it is really heavy.
The focus is surprisingly not on aliens here but on the system of this earth. The financial system, the political or religious to name some.
Then there all kinds of info as I get to wonder who told him all of that stuff. Oct 27, Dory rated it liked it. I learned a lot about how our monetary system has been controlled for generations.
Thought-provoking material about why we are so easily led by the powerful in our lives. Some spiritual- encouragement to let our light shine. View 1 comment.

I see these Icke books now as being good entertainment and food for thought but have given up considering the complete reality of a world under the spell of a dark intentioned cabal of Reptiles.
There I have purged my past and I feel better. Jun 25, Paul Billy-Bong-Gong rated it it was amazing. Heavy on the money and banks with the insight of oneness building Oct 08, Zina rated it it was ok.

Pretty informative, although I do not agree with all the associations and conclusions.
A must read, nonetheless. Jun 29, Maja Dezulovic rated it really liked it. All I can say is just May 13, Nathan Cresswell rated it liked it. This is a difficult read, lots of detailed info but I kept going and think it was ultimately worthwhile. I'm not sure I agree or even understand some of the sections on multi-dimensions but there was enough in there for me to keep at it and read the whole thing.
I give this book 3. I have read some other books by David Icke, and also watched a number of his videos on YouTube. This particular book gave me some trouble : it is SO detailed. There are SO many names Icke obviously did a lot of research for this book. These 'inner circles' are under the influence of a con I give this book 3. These 'inner circles' are under the influence of a consciousness that Icke calls 'the Prison Warders'. The Prison Warders thrive on fear and guilt, and make us forget who we are, what we are capable of.
The message I got from the last couple of chapters is the following : 'To understand what is going on in the world, is to set yourself free'. I recommend this book. I'm sure I will read it again. May 10, Andrew Tippett rated it it was amazing. Zechariah Sitchin's writings are solid on the mythology of this realm, David Icke is the one who paints vivid murals of a deep shadow world run by a species whose lineage is directly related to the mythology set forth by Sitchin.
David Icke is much more charismatic, melodramatic, and magnetic. For as much as he rambles and bounces around in his lectures, this book was My interest in Von Daniken led me to Sitchin, and while reading Sitchin I discovered the lectures of David Icke on the internet.
For as much as he rambles and bounces around in his lectures, this book was refreshing in how meticulously organized the presentation of information is here. I don't necessarily agree with every single thing David Icke has theorized or concluded in his explorations and research, however, it is quite an enlightening and eye opening journey to partake in. Trippy, historical documentation of global elite.. Icke believes that the brotherhood uses human anxiety as energy, and that the Archons keep humanity trapped in a "five sense reality" so they can feed off the negative energy created by fear and hate.
He suggests that these sacrifices continue to this day. Icke uses the phrase 'problem—reaction—solution' to explain how he believes the Illuminati agenda advances. According to Icke, the Illuminati guide us in the direction they desire by creating false problems, which allows them to give their desired solution to the problem they created.
Kennedy and Agenda One of the methods Icke claims they use is creating fake opposites, or what he calls "opposames", such as the Axis and Allied powers of World War II, which he believes were used to provoke the creation of the European Union and the state of Israel.
Bush , Barack Obama and Donald Trump are part of a false political divide. Despite the presidency belonging to the Republican Party then the Democratic Party , then going back to the Republicans, Icke claims they are all pushing the same agenda of regime change in the Middle East , a goal set out in the early s in a document called The Project for the New American Century.
In Tales From The Time Loop , Icke argues that the Illuminati create religious, racial, ethnic and sexual division to divide and rule humanity but believes that the many can only be controlled by the few if they allow themselves to be, and that the power the Illuminati have is the power the people give them.
Arab is turned against Jew, black against white, Right against Left. Unplugging from the Matrix means refusing to recognise these illusory fault lines. We are all One. I refuse to see a Jew as different from an Arab and vice versa. They are both expressions of the One and need to be observed and treated the same, none more or less important than the other.
How could it be any different, except when we believe the illusion of division is real? If we do that, the Matrix has us. Icke's solution is peaceful non-compliance , which he believes will disempower 'the elite'. The brotherhood are "interactive software programs", or "Red Dresses". They lack consciousness and free will, and their human bodies are holographic veils. They include the "repeaters", people in positions of influence who repeat what other people tell them; he cites doctors, teachers and journalists as examples.
The third and smallest group are those who see through the illusion; they are usually dubbed dangerous or mad. The Red Dress genetic lines interbreed obsessively to make sure their bloodlines are not weakened by the second or third levels of consciousness, because consciousness can rewrite the software. The Moon Matrix is a broadcast from that spacecraft to the human body—computer, specifically to the left hemisphere of the brain, which gives us our sense of reality: "We are living in a dreamworld within a dreamworld — a Matrix within the virtual-reality universe — and it is being broadcast from the Moon.
Unless people force themselves to become fully conscious, their minds are the Moon's mind. It was like an enormous penny had suddenly dropped". In this more recent conceptualization, the rings of Saturn which Icke believes were artificially created by reptilian spacecraft are the ultimate source of the signal, while the Moon functions as an amplifier. The video was removed from the platform, and YouTube tightened its rules to prevent its website being used to spread conspiracy theories about the COVID pandemic.
Icke said in the London Real interview: "If 5G continues and reaches where they want to take it, human life as we know it is over London Live screened a similar interview with Icke about coronavirus on 8 April After Ofcom 's formal investigation the UK media regulator decided the 80 minute interview broke the terms of the broadcasting code as it "expressed views which had the potential to cause significant harm to viewers in London during the pandemic" which "were made without the support of any scientific or other evidence.
Icke's main page on Facebook was deleted on 1 May , while other pages on the site promoting Icke with a smaller readership remained on the platform. Due to continued violation of these policies, we have terminated David Icke's YouTube channel. Interest in Icke's conspiracy theories is widespread and has cut across political, economic, and religious divides. His audiences hold a wide range of beliefs, uniting individuals, and left and right wing groups; from New Agers , and Ufologists ,   as well as far-right Christian Patriots , and the UK neo-Nazi group Combat 18 , which supports his writings.
Christopher F. Jonathan A. In , when he was questioned by Jon Ronson , Icke declared that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is evidence not of a Jewish plot but of a reptilian plot. He also said, "the families in positions of great financial power obsessively interbreed with each other. But I'm not talking about one earth race, Jewish or non-Jewish. I'm talking about a genetic network that operates through all races, this bloodline being a fusion of human and reptilian genes They then dominated the Versailles Peace Conference and created the circumstances which made the Second World War inevitable.
They financed Hitler to power in and made the funds available for his rearmament. Thought patterns in the collective Jewish mind have repeatedly created that physical reality of oppression, prejudice and racism which matches the pattern — the expectation — programmed into their collective psyche. They expect it; they create it.
Robertson disputes that Icke is antisemitic, saying that it is just easier for some people to accept that when Icke says reptilians he really means Jews than that he literally means extraterrestrial reptilians control world politics. Robertson also says that in order to believe the accusations of antisemitism you must ignore numerous things, such as the many high-profile people Icke names as reptilian who are not Jewish a point also made by Jon Ronson in his documentary The Secret Rulers of the World , Part 2: "David Icke, The Lizards and The Jews" , Icke's frequent statements that he is speaking literally and not metaphorically, and that Icke identifies the supposedly reptilian ruling elite as ' Aryan ' in several places.
Robertson also writes that Icke denounces racism, having called it "the ultimate idiocy". Thus to me all racism is ridiculous and completely missing the point of who we are and where we are.
Following complaints from the Canadian Jewish Congress in , Icke was briefly detained by immigration officials in Canada, where he was booked for a speaking tour,  and his books were removed from Indigo Books , a Canadian chain. Several stops on the tour were cancelled by the venues, as was a lecture in London.
The Maritim hotel did not give a reason for the cancellation, but The Carl Benz Arena wrote on its Facebook page that it was due to the "contentious nature and the contradictory statements, which for us as a politically neutral event venue do not give a clear picture. Micheal Vonn, the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association's policy director, told the newspaper: "You are free to be a racist in Canada, you are free to say so and tell others that they should be, too.
In February , the Australian Government cancelled Icke's visa ahead of a planned speaking tour  on the grounds of his character. Labor's immigration spokesman, Shayne Neumann , said, "Labor welcomes the fact that the Government did what we called on them to do and refused David Icke's visa application. Political Research Associates has described Icke's politics as "a mishmash of most of the dominant themes of contemporary neofascism, mixed in with a smattering of topics culled from the U.
He believes the U. He began to talk about the big conspiracy by a group of bankers, media moguls, etc. Michael Barkun has described Icke's position as New Age conspiracism , writing that Icke is the most fluent of the genre,  describing his work as "improvisational millennialism ", with an end-of-history scenario involving a final battle between good and evil.
Barkun defines improvisational millennialism as an "act of bricolage ": because everything is connected in the conspiracist world view, every source can be mined for links. Relying on Douglas Kellner 's distinction between clinical paranoia and a "critical paranoia" that confronts power, Richard Kahn and Tyson Lewis argue that Icke displays elements of both, and that his reptilian hypothesis and his "postmodern metanarrative" may be allegorical , a Swiftian satire which is used to give ordinary people a narrative with which to question what they see around them and alert them to the alleged emergence of a global fascist state.
Influenced by Icke, public figures have been asked if they are lizards. Both men said they were not lizards. Key added that he had taken the unusual step of consulting not only a doctor but a vet.
