David Icke: The Lizards and The Jews
As regular readers are aware- David Icke is the main public advocate of the Reptilian Shapeshifter Theory on the secret nature of the Illuminati. He has come under attack on numerous occassions by the Anti-Defamation League- who claim that when he says “shape-shifting reptiles” he really means “Jews.”
Recently I found a few episodes of the superlative documentary series The Secret Rulers of the World– narrated by British journalist Jon Ronson– while browsing around Google Video. This is a great series and I recommend it highly. This particular portion was also partly the basis for Ronson’s book Them: Adventures With Extremists, an excerpt of which can be read here. Ronson is a top class documentarian and a totally unbiased observer- you’ll see what I mean when you watch events unfold on both sides of the battle in this episode- David Icke: The Lizards and The Jews
This is a tough spot to be in- getting branded with the “anti-semite” label is like having a bullseye drawn in the center of your forehead with an indelible hot-pink flourescent marker. It’s the sticky semiotic slime of choice these days for those who make their living smearing people- seems they finally found something that outperforms “pedophile.”
Intentionally or not, of course, the label works as a “tar baby.” The more Icke insists he actually does mean shape-shifting reptiles- the more certain it seems to some people that he must be speaking in code for something else. Ronson points this out to an exasperated Icke in one scene- saying “When you say ‘This is NOT a Jewish plot,’ some people think that’s a metaphor for you saying ‘Its a Jewish plot.'” Icke blinks, stunned. He is uncharacteristically silent for about two seconds. There is nothing he can say to get out of this. Regaining his composure he does his best: “Are you gonna laugh first, or me?” he asks- “Who’s disappearing up their ass, me or you?”
But is the ADL the original source of Icke’s troubles, or just an unwitting tool of more adept manipulators of meaning?
For several years prior, Icke traveled around the world displaying his findings on the NWO and exposing the hidden meanings of the masonic imagery all around us (you can find videos of most of these lectures on YouTube or Google Video). In 1999 he released “The Biggest Secret,” an anti-NWO screed that was tremendously popular throughout the world, his best-selling book to date, and arguably his best work. Chapter Two of that book- in which he laid out the reptilian theory for the first time in print- was entitled “Don’t Mention the Reptiles.”
If Icke was speaking in code for anything at the moment he wrote that title, perhaps it should have been “Don’t Mention the Rothschilds!”
