Caitlin Johnstone is someone who I have an unquantifiable amount of respect for. She is a true fighter of establishment power and someone who is always willing to share her worldview regardless of what others think.
However, on the recent banning on David Icke from Facebook and YouTube, her and I have a bit of a disagreement. And that disagreement is the result of one sentence early on her in her article on this topic:
I know next to nothing about David Icke, and I have done exactly zero research into his views for this article; for all I know he’s every bit the raving lunatic the narrative managers say he is.
First off, I’m not sure if I believe that Caitlin really “knows next to nothing about David Icke.” Especially considering David Icke is both a massive of hers — having said so in one of his many interviews for London Reel — to the point where her articles regularly appear on his website.
However, I will give Caitlin the benefit of the doubt and assume she knows nothing about David Icke — in fact, we’ll even go so far as to assume that the first time she heard of Icke was when she saw he got banned from social media. This is something her and I, however, also differ quite a bit on. As I know quite a bit about David Icke; I’ve read his books, watched his documentary Renegade, and spent many hours on his website — that’s even how I found Caitlin in the first place.
David Icke is not a man who deserves to be banned from FaceBook or YouTube — he’s a man who deserves much worse. To be blunt, I believe this man should have been sued for slander ages ago — and that’s being generous.
This is a man who argued in his book Alice In Wonderland And The World Trade Center Disaster — yes, that’s what it’s called — that the first President Bush, as well as other bigwigs in that administration (Dick Cheney, James Bakker, and so on) raped various children! His source for this is a woman named Cathy O’Brein, author of Trance Formation Of America, who claims, without evidence, that Bush and — of all people, former Mexican President Miguel De La Madrid, tried to brainwash her into being a sex slave. Icke even repeated these claims in a video uploaded to his now deleted YouTube channel shorty after George H.W. Bush’s death. This claim was so insane that even her fellow conspiracy theorist, the late Jim Keith, called it “fraudulent or delusional.”
But David Icke is no fan of Democrats. In his 2007 work, The David Icke Guide To The Global Conspiracy (And How To End It), Icke claims that Hillary Clinton made sure Flight 77 — the plane which crashed in a field in Pennsylvania — went down to kill a Conservative Columnist named Barbara Olson, who was on the plane so she could appear on Bill Maher’s show Politically Incorrect. According to Icke, Olson would have stopped Hillary Clinton from becoming President in 2008 — or something.
These are just two examples of objective slander brought to the world by David Icke. One of Icke’s main “acts” is calling any politician or powerful person a pedophile — although, due to some incredibly bad luck, he never once accused Jimmy Savile of this.
Hey, anyone remember when Icke had to pay Richard Warman $90,000 because Icke claimed Warman abused children? In a fair world, Warman would not be the only time Icke had to face consequences is all I’m saying.
This is also something that bothers me about how mainstream media talks about David Icke. Yes, it’s easy to laugh at the man who says the world is controlled by Lizards — however, they have let a man who accuses others of the worst kind of crimes without evidence roam free for three decades!
After knowing what I just wrote, how can anyone say it is not about David Icke?
