I knew it was going to be a long day. In fact, I was dreading it.
About a year ago, I saw that David Icke was going to be speaking at Wembley. Immediately, I bought a ticket. £64.90 (inc booking fee). That was a year ago. It seemed funny a year ago.
Since then, I’ve been to conspiracy theory discussion groups several times. I’ve met quite a few people who believe Icke’s theories. I’ve gone to the pub with them. It’s easy to dismiss these people as weirdos and cranks, but on the whole, the people I’ve met have been fairly normal. Nice. Likeable.
I bought a DVD of a previous talk he’d given at the Brixton Academy. It’s a four-disc set. This is why I was dreading seeing Icke at Wembley. I knew it was going to be a long day.
If you’re not familiar with Icke’s ideas, his basic theory is that the universe is created from vibrational energy. The world as we perceive it is a holographic projection of this vibrational energy. Humans are infinite consciousness, but there’s a conspiracy to stop us realising our true potential and instead keep us locked in “five sense reality”. This conspiracy is led by entities Icke refers to as Archons; reptilian multi-dimensional beings beaming messages from the rings of Saturn. By manipulating our genetic code, the Archons have trapped us in this five-sense prison (this he refers to as “the hijack”). There are also genetically modified human/reptilian hybrids that control the population through the media, politics and finance in order to preserve their bloodlines and keep us in a state of fear and negativity. These emotions create low frequency energy which they feed off. To combat them, we should give out positive energy and “choose love”. It’s quite a simple idea.
Whenever people talk about Icke, they always mention the lizards. I’m not sure why people always focus on the lizards. He’s talking about multi-dimensional beings from space controlling humanity. Is the oddest thing about that really the fact those multi-dimensional beings resemble lizards? He cheated slightly at one point. Explaining how ancient cultures all over the world depict reptilian beings in their art and folklore – the Uraeus of ancient Egypt, the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the Chinese dragon – he included the story of the Frog Prince. That doesn’t count. Frogs are amphibians. You can’t claim them as “reptilian” just because they’re green. That’s like saying a cucumber is a lizard.
To be honest, much of what he said was very similar to the stuff in the DVD, although he didn’t mention Saturn then. Instead he seemed more interested in the “Moon Matrix” (the Moon is a hollow artificial structure). He explains how he came to this conclusion:
I sat down one morning at the computer to start writing […] and it was like an energy field descends upon me and suddenly, I just knew the Moon was not what it seems to be.
Sounds pretty convincing to me.
He talked about the symbols used by secret societies and religions to represent Saturn (= Satan). The list included the following:
eyes, circles, pyramids, triangles, reptiles, owls, bulls, fire/flames, the Phoenix, eagles, crescents, horns, boats, goats, twin pillars/towers, concentric circles, rings, the number eight, spiders, the number 666, six-pointed stars, skulls/skull and crossbones, hexagons, cubes, squares, the Crucifix, the Kaaba, the tefillin, the colour black, the colour red, black and white squares/tiles, mortar boards, the Greek god Chronos, the Grim Reaper, time, Old Father Time, sickles/scythes, crowns, protruding tongues, white beards, Santa Claus.
It’s a long list and one which seems to include most shapes and ideas and colours and things. I was disappointed that I wasn’t included in the list to be honest.
He spoke about how these symbols are used in popular culture. Madonna and Lady Gaga use them a lot, as do Jay-Z and Beyonce. Twice he referred to imagery used by Annie Lennox during the Olympic opening ceremony and each time said “I’m not saying she’s involved in any of this”. He never offered this benefit of the doubt to anyone else. I suspect Icke fancies Annie Lennox.
Icke ran through pretty much every conspiracy theory going and blamed it all on the Archontic influence: chemtrails, 9/11, 7/7, Dunblane, water fluoridation, global warming, Columbine, HAARP, Agenda 21. It’s all true, and it’s all the fault of the Archons.
The DVD I’d watched had quite a confrontational message: human race, get off your knees. At Wembley, Icke was more positive. Although having said that, there was quite a powerful bit at the end when Icke showed pictures of people working in the arms trade or in politics and simply shouted “WHAT ARE YOU DOING? YOU HAVE CHILDREN. YOU HAVE GRAND-CHILDREN. YOU SHOULDN’T BE DOING THIS”. You don’t have to believe in Archons to agree that “What are you doing?” is a good question to ask people in authority. “I’m sorry but it fucking makes me sick” he said, before adding “And yes, I am available for children’s parties”.
Eventually, twelve hours after he originally took to the stage, Icke reached his conclusion. We need to choose love, he said. Since his Brixton talk a couple of years ago, we’ve seen riots on the streets of London. “What you fight, you become” he explains. You cannot fight a violent state through violence. Instead of violent protest, Icke proposes a “non-comply-dance”. Dancing in the face of authority. Positivity instead of aggression. A group of dancers came on stage and joined Icke in his non-comply-dance. There was chanting. Finally Icke finished with a message of love. “We are love when we remember we are love.” He even extended his message of love to the reptilian Archons and the bloodline elites who manipulate and control humanity. I thought that was nice.
You can laugh at Icke, make him a figure of fun, but ultimately, his message is a positive one. We are love. The logic behind every single step he’s taken might be completely wrong (it is completely wrong) yet somehow he’s ended up in almost the right place. At the very least, you have to admire a man who can get thousands of people to come to Wembley Arena to watch a twelve-hour PowerPoint presentation.
