No, I have only seen excerpts from his stand-up shows and interviews. I've never read any of his books either,
I think they find some weird comfort in this world-view because nothing can shake them from it.
A clever move on his part? Or is it a sign of the times that more and more people are waking up and realising how their lives are being manipulated by TPTB?
Personally I feel he is an intelligent man, who has undertaken some great research and has brought this to the attention of the world through his books, website and presentations. He is right on so many things, why shouldn't he be right on Reptillians? He didn't just make up these claims. He has talked to people and did his research.

Personally, I don't doubt his intelligence is higher than average and think he has made a lot of clever moves. He reminds me of Bill Cooper. Now Bill believed a lot of what he said, but he also had no problems deceiving his fans and producing evidence to support his beliefs. Icke seems to believe a lot of his own patter too. It's hard to tell how much of it is original. As far as I can tell, he hasn't had many original thoughts and, for all we know, chooses any hot button topic and goes for the conspiracy jugular. Looking at his core material supports this idea.
His allegations of pedophilia, satanism and murder are sly and hyperbolic. Imagine any person in society making those charges? Imagine a neighbour telling tales like that? Most people would be repulsed by them, but with Icke, followers share in the allegations and endorse them. It indicates a detachment from reality and, I think, a lack of humanity. That Icke has made money from activity like this makes him pretty detestable.
There are such things as libel laws. Why hasn't anyone he accuses of these things ever taken him to court? Sure, it isn't very nice to read or contemplate, but is that enough justification to deny ignorance? We know it goes on in all walks of life and if I for one was ever accused of that, then I know that I would take him to court.
I appreciate he is not going to be everyone's cup of tea (as we say in the U.K), but at least he has the balls to satnd up for his convictions and tell it how HE sees things.
People are free to decide for themselves on whether he is a dis-info agent or is genuinely trying to wake people up to what is really happening. So I can appreciate your position on David Icke.edit on 21/8/11 by Cobaltic1978 because: (no reason given)

I do believe that Libya’s Leader (sadly soon to be ex Leader - hurrah) is impartial to long speeches and holds a few records, along with the inspiring and sleep provoking Chavez of Venezuela. Castro of Cuba is also known for “going on a bit” and may hold the record at the UN for length of speech.
A long speech does not suggest or imply there’s anything interesting being said.

Actually, if you disregard his Satanic reptillian theory, his findings are pretty sound. If he never accused world leaders, CEOs, bankers, etc of being interdimensional aliens people wouldn't be so quick to judge him.
But then again, as far as Satan is concerned there is always the Bohemian Groveedit on 21-8-2011 by Swills because: (no reason given)
