Reptillian shapeshifters control the world!

scary shit!

When I was a young pup, there was a TV series about benevolent seeming aliens who had come to earth to control mankind called ‘V.’ The ‘big secret’ about these visitors was that they were actually reptiles who wore masks and wigs to appear human. They remade the series a few years ago, but I haven’t seen the new version. I tried to watch the old series a while back when I heard they were remaking it, but only made it halfway through the first episode. I was pretty amused by seeing the aliens swallowing hamsters and guinea pigs, but the acting and dialogue was so freaking wooden I couldn’t make it past the first 1/2 hour. Sometimes you just can’t go back.

looks rather reptilian to me

A few years ago, I heard about ‘David Icke‘ for the first time. If you don’t know who he is, follow the links. Icke claims to believe that ‘alien shapeshifters’ control the world and people in positions of power (like the Rothschilds, most or all of the presidents of the US and other nations, etc.), are members of a race of reptiles that have interbred with humans and control us. It sounds like a pretty entertaining set of ideas; I kind of wish it WAS true because that could be so cool and I could then join the freedom fighters trying to take down the evil reptiles and wear bandoliers of bullets and grenades on my armor vest like I am in some Schwartzenegger movie.  And who wouldn’t want to do that? It certainly would be more fun than marching in protest against the greed of bankers and financiers and the collusion of politicians to bend democracy to the will of corporate interests. And I’d rather carry an AK 47 and kill lizards than carry a bindle and curse the man — but right now the latter scenario seems more likely.

Apparently some people think Icke is an anti-Semite.  I don’t know anything about that, but, unfortunately, it would not surprise me.  Ray Arnold Palmer, one of the fathers of modern UFOlogy, apparently would go on tears about ‘The Jews’ in the years before his death; I don’t know if that was approaching senility or if age had just removed the filtering software from Palmer’s brain.  Anti-semitism has a long history in the conspiracy theory movement… perhaps hating ‘the other’ is a part of the dark underbelly of human imagination.

If it is not clear already, I love thinking about ‘outsiders’ and freaks and eccentrics of all kinds.

    Ickes is truly crazy, but I love this men's of repitilian overlords! My current campaign features them as the BBEGs along with Grays, Bigfoot and other cryptid weirdo stuff.

    And the original V series was much better.

    Icke is loopy as a three day hula festival, but I'm not sure he's anti-Semitic. His fantasies involve The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious anti-Jewish text, but he argues that it was written by the lizards and doesn't really have anything to do with the Jewish people at all. The problem is that readers see him mention lizards and the Protocols and assume he's using “lizard” as a euphemism for “Jew” when I'm not sure that was ever his intent.

    If he is anti-Semitic, then he's still equating Jewish people to lizards, so I don't think he can really be taken seriously.

    I couldn't be bothered with the new V. I didn't see much point in watching it when the twist had been revealed thirty years before.

    Scary she may be, but Diana is still hot.

    Is that straw-haired individual a victim of a horribly disfiguring accident? I need to know whether or not I should feel bad for being grossed out by them.

    If by 'horribly disfiguring accident' you mean access to more money for plastic surgery than is good for her, the answer is “yes.” I just typed 'reptilian humanoid' into image search and that was one of the images that popped up. Turns out she is some wealthy dame who just kept getting plastic surgery again and again and again…

    That feeling welling up in your breast? The Germans have a name for it — 'Schadenfreude.'

    I read somewhere that at least one conspiracy scholar thinks that when Icke says, “Reptilian Humanoids,” he is speaking 'metaphorically.' In other words, he argues that Icke is saying they are not really 'reptiles,' they are just modern day aristocrats who think the lower classes are there to be fucked or forgotten. I think when Icke says 'reptiles' he means 'reptiles,' but I know less about Icke than Wikipedia so take my opinions with a shovel-full of salt.

  7. Limpey says:

    add: if I remember right, the 'anti-semetic' accusation was based on things he said about 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.' I don't know much about 'The Protocols' beyond that they were faked by the Czarist Russian secret police to distract the middle class and poor with a phony 'secret plot' by the Jews.

  8. Evan says:

    I think when Icke says 'reptiles' he means 'reptiles,'

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure you're right. Doesn't he also say they drink human blood and that sometimes errors in videos will occur that show the lizard-people's true form?

  9. kelvingreen says:

    Oh, I'm also fairly certain that when Icke says “reptile” he means “reptile”.

    I hope so. Otherwise it is much less interesting.
