You might not have heard of David Icke.
He is a former British football player. Normal, right?
A former BBC presenter, too. Yep, pretty normal too.
And he believes the moon is a hollowed-out alien space station, Hillary Clinton, and the Queen are both reptile aliens sent to control the world, and 9/11 was a global conspiracy.
Umm, say what?
Yep. David Icke is a conspiracy theorist. A full time investigator into “who, or what, is really controlling the world”.
And people are genuinely, undeniably interested in what he has to say. Thousands of Australians lined up to see his shows when he recently toured Australia, many which sold out.
You might also recognise Icke from his appearance on The Today Show, where Lisa Wilkinson called him out on his pretty wild claims Post continues after video…
Among his claims:
We’ve been successfully enslaved by humanoid reptile aliens.
Icke believes 60 per cent of the world’s leaders are shape-shifting humanoid reptiles, including Queen Elizabeth II, and they control the world. And the rest of us? We’re enslaved to them.
Voting is a farce, he argues, because it’s only freedom when we’re given a choice, and we, according to him, “are choosing from two masks on the same face.”
“What they have done is incessantly centralised power in every area of our lives…it’s been given a name! Globalisation. Look at the world. Look at corporations. Look at the trade agreements and the power that they’re giving to corporations. Look at the centralisation of politics,” Icke says.
