David Icke is a fairly well known British conspiracy theorist. His most prominent conspiracy theories make connections between well known organizations and people, including the Illuminati, the Freemasons, Bill and Hilary Clinton, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, the Rothschilds, and countless others. David Icke claims that a secret race of reptilians has been living among humans and interbreeding with us for millenniums. This interbreeding with reptilians has given certain family bloodlines more reptilian DNA than other human families and because of this, certain bloodlines appear more reptilian. According to Icke, we can only see these reptilians when certain people have been able to “tune their fourth-dimensional frequency” to see them, otherwise known as tuning their “morphogenetic field.”
According to Icke certain bloodlines are selected by the Illuminati to have positions of leadership if they contain enough reptilian DNA. Icke’s first attempt to try and convince people of his reptilians theory consists of showing pictures of people, which at best resemble people making a funny face with pictures of poorly drawn lizard men next to them. Next, Icke tries to convince his audience by recounting his experience with unnamed interviewees and saying how their views all coincidentally describe and agree with what he was writing about. He then claims that reptilians are somehow linked to the supposedly satanic, occult, and reptilian family of the Rothschilds.
The Rothschilds are an incredibly wealthy European family that set up medieval banking systems along with owning most of the wineries in Europe. However, Icke claims (with no evidence whatsoever) that the Rothschilds actually are the Bauers, who were one of the most notorious occult bloodlines of the Middle Ages. (Although David Icke’s claims sounded crazy before, they get even more absurd now.) Icke asserts that a man who claims to be related to the Rothschilds states that the Rothschilds could have had hundreds of thousands of illegitimate children by the distribution of the Rothschilds’ sperm via Illuminati sperm banks and artificial insemination and secret breeding programs. These illegitimate Rothschild children are supposedly groomed for leadership positions all over the world, one example being Hitler.
David Icke’s arguments when read and analyzed reveal an incredibly paranoid man who has created an elaborate story connecting the Illuminati, the Rothschilds, Hitler, and reptilians. However, that is all it actually is; his story lacks any basic foundation of evidence upon which to base an argument, especially one implicating all past and current world leaders. It would be almost too easy to pick on his lack of evidence because his first attempt at convincing his audience of his claims consists of showing his audience funny pictures; his second attempt at convincing his audience is him recounting an interview with a man who, on a five day LSD trip thought he saw lizard men. Icke’s conspiracy theories about reptilians reveal nothing more than him making a story and trying as hard as he can to make it seem plausible by talking to anyone who will agree with him.
