The Lizard Illuminati
The world’s most influential and controversial conspiracy theorist, David Vaughan Icke, gives David Morpurgo from Vice a tour of Icke’s inner sanctum. From his home on the Isle of Wight, Icke also takes Morpurgo to an isolated rock formation allegedly used as an altar for satanic rituals and human sacrifices. Icke’s theories are bizarre, but he has a massive global following, having sold more than 20 million copies of his 19 books.
Among his central claims:
- A master race of shape-shifting lizards, known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, controls much of the world’s politics and commerce. He asserts that the majority of US presidents and the British royal family belong to this lizard illuminati sect, only masquerading as humans.
- The Moon is an alien spacecraft broadcasting secret signals that mold how people perceive reality.
- The lizard rulers devised the major religions to create strife, thus allowing them to divide and conquer humankind. Similarly, he maintains that terrorist events like 9/11 are wholly concocted by the elite to enhance their power.
Morpurgo’s encounter with Icke is fascinating, although not as thorough as the 2006 documentary, David Icke: Was He Right?, broadcast by Channel Five in the United Kingdom and also presented below. Neither film, though, adequately covers the charges of his detractors that he’s a New Age huckster or that his theories have an anti-Semitic tinge. The interviewers also ask only softball questions of Icke. We get a sense of his quirkiness, but never is he put on the firing line to prove his more outrageous assertions.
