New York Times Casually Praises Conspiracy Theorist David Icke's Book About the Reptillian Conspiracy (And PS, the Reptilloids Are Jews)

This was in a profile of Alice Walker, though, and we all know that the left has decided that black people cannot be racist or antisemitic, or, at least, should never be called on it.

We just went through this with the antisemitic leadership of the "Women's" March.

And the New York Times has learned nothing.

So here it goes again, promoting antisemites and hiding the truth of it from readers:

Over the weekend, the New York Times Book Review published a full-length interview with Alice Walker, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple. The very first question: "What books are on your nightstand?" Walker replied with four, the second of which was:
"And the Truth Shall Set You Free," by David Icke. In Icke's books there is the whole of existence, on this planet and several others, to think about. A curious person's dream come true.

This passed without comment from the New York Times interviewer, and the publication passed it on to the readers without qualification. This is rather remarkable because the book is an unhinged anti-Semitic conspiracy tract written by one of Britain's most notorious anti-Semites.

A former soccer player turned professional hate peddler, Icke is one of the most influential conspiracy theorists in Europe, and certainly in Britain. Today, he has over 777,000 followers on Facebook, and speaks to audiences around the world. Like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that a secret conspiracy controls the world. And like many conspiracy theorists, Icke claims that this secret conspiracy happens to be Jewish. In And The Truth Shall You Free, the word "Jewish" appears 241 times, and the name "Rothschild" is mentioned 374 times. These references are not compliments. Indeed, the book was so obviously anti-Semitic that Icke's publisher refused to publish it, and he had to print it himself.

In the book and elsewhere, Icke draws liberally upon the infamous anti-Semitic pamphlet, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion--a Russian forgery about an alleged global Jewish cabal that is widely considered one of the most influential anti-Semitic works in history. Magnanimously, Icke calls the hate tract by a different name....

So, is Icke anti-Semitic? Well, here are some other things that he says in the book:

* The Talmud is "among the most appallingly racist documents on the planet."

* B'nai Brith, the world’s oldest Jewish service organization, was behind the slave trade (an anti-Semitic canard popularized by Louis Farrakhan) and controls the Ku Klux Klan...

* Jews are behind anti-Semitic attacks: "If you really want to discredit someone, you arrange for anti-Jewish or anti-whatever events such as the smashing of graves, assaults on people, even a terrorist bomb in the extreme. You then point the finger at your target person or group. You say they are either directly responsible or 'incited' the actions by what they are writing and saying."

* Quotes and seconds the heinous assertion of Gary Allen–the John Birch Society spokesman and former George Wallace speechwriter–that Jews bankrolled their own extermination in the Holocaust...

* Calls on schools to teach the controversy about whether the Holocaust really happened: "Why do we play a part in suppressing alternative information to the official line of the Second World War? How is it right that while this fierce suppression goes on, free copies of the Spielberg film, Schindler’s List, are given to schools to indoctrinate children with the unchallenged version of events? And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history?"

(Icke never does explain how Jews could have funded the Holocaust if the Holocaust didn’t actually happen.)

...

This is the book that Alice Walker recommended to New York Times readers.

It seems strange to me that the left has indicted the entire right for an antisemitism which scarcely exists and does so only at the fringiest of fringes, and yet when one of their own engages in straight-up, no-question-about-it Real-Deal-Holyfield antisemitism, they actively spread the doctrine.

David Icke isn't just anti-semitic, of course. He's also anti-reptilian.

Icke proposes that an inter-dimensional race of reptilian beings called the Archons have hijacked the earth and are stopping humanity from realising its true potential. He claims they are the same beings as the Anunnaki, deities from the Babylonian creation myth the Enuma Elis, and the fallen angels, or Watchers, who mated with human women in the Biblical apocrypha.

Icke believes that a genetically modified human/Archon hybrid race of shape-shifting reptilians, known as the "Babylonian Brotherhood" or the Illuminati, manipulate global events to keep humans in constant fear, so the Archons can feed off the 'negative energy' this creates. In The Biggest Secret (1999), Icke identified the Brotherhood as descendants of reptilians from the constellation Draco, and said they live in caverns inside the earth....

Icke states that the reptilians come from not only another planet but another dimension, the lower level of the fourth dimension (the "lower astral dimension"), the one nearest the physical world. It is from this dimension that they control the planet, although just as fourth-dimensional reptilians control us, they in turn are controlled by a fifth dimension. Barkun argues that Icke's introduction of different dimensions allowed him to skip awkward questions about how the reptilians got here.

Was this theory discussed in the book And the Truth Shall Set You Free that Alice Walker praises as essential nourishment for the mind? Why yes it was:

Icke briefly introduced his ancient-astronaut hypothesis in The Robot's Rebellion (1994), citing Milton William Cooper's Behold a Pale Horse (1991), and expanded it in And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), citing Barbara Marciniak's Bringers of the Dawn (1992).

It should be pointed out that many people think that given that Icke is both a Holocaust denier/Holocaust apologist, and a believer in world control by a shape-shifting half-reptilian race, he intends people to read his Lizard People theory as a disguised indictment of the Jews. But he insists that the Lizard People theory is not a "allegory," and he means actual Lizard People.

I don't know either way -- on one hand, it seems likely that when he talks about Jews controlling the world and shape-shifting reptilians controlling the world, he means these two to be the same group.

Also -- this video, which I've only skimmed, so I don't know if it's intended to debunk Icke or to promote him, shows Icke at a conference explaining that the Reptilians drink the blood of "blond-haired, blue-eyed people" to remain healthy. That sounds like barely-disguised Blood Libel about Jews drinking Christians' blood.

On the other hand -- he really does seem to be pushing his Reptilian conspiracy theory in earnest. And he also doesn't seem shy about peddling antisemitism right alongside the Reptilian stuff. So maybe they are distinct in his mind (though, I'd bet, his theory would then include Jews as the Reptilians' agents on earth).

Whatever he might mean by Lizard People, his stuff about the Jews controlling the world and financing their own Holocaust speaks for itself.

At least the New York Times thinks so -- and didn't bother to add even a parenthetical remark about Icke.

Exit Question: Should the New York Times be deplatformed by YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, Google, and MasterCard? Why is the left permitted to engage in sly antisemitic propaganda without any penalty?

If Sargon of Akkad made such sly endorsements of David Icke, what position would YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, Google, and MasterCard take on him?

PS: Don't bother asking Limpdicked Cucks David Brooks or Ross Douthat to comment on their newspaper's 2nd-base-under-the-shirt dalliance with the hardest of hardcore antisemitic conspiracy theories. They shake their pompoms for the New York Times as hard as S.E. Cupp shakes hers for CNN.
