When I first loaded the page, I immediately saw Mr. Icke's photograph, and concluded that he looks thoroughly unremarkable except for the facts that his lips bear a marked resemblence to those of Natalie Portman and and his eyebrows have a gentle, inquisitive quality that I know I've seen somewhere before, but I just can't place my finger on it.
I realize that photographs can be faked, but the photographs shouts to me, "Trust this man! Everything he says is right!"
Not content to trust a possibly doctored photograph, I scroll down. I immediately see what appears to be poetry. I am incapable of reading poetry. My eyes glaze across it. I can not force them to focus on it. I am completely unable to read poetry, or anything displayed in such a way that it APPEARS to be poetry, and even free verse gives me hives.
Below what I assume to be poetry, there was an oh-so-cliche rip-off of the blue-pill/red-pill deal from the Matrix. Oh, this bodes VERY well. The fact that he even mentioned "stolen from the matrix" at the end struck me as being especially lame.
So I check out the "blue pill" page first. Hmm. "Everyone who disagrees with my not-yet-stated opinions is a mindless sheep for not-yet-stated opinions." My first impressions of him, based on what I read on his "blue pill" page, is that he hates the following: the United States, Jews, mass-market entertainment, law enforcement, Africans, and the media. I look forward to finding out what he actually DOES like.
Even without having looked at his essays yet, I'm starting to suspect that he may just be a troll.
So I visit his "red pill" page, where I'm sure he's going to tell me "the absolute truth about what's really going on in the world."
My suspicion that he's a troll is suported when I see he describes himself as "the most controversial author and speaker in the world." My "trolldar" pinged as soon as I read this: falsely describing oneself as "popular" and claiming to be "controversial" are two of the most common ways for Internet trolls to attract undue attention to themselves.
As I actually began to read his ramblings, bile began to rise in my gut. I suppose I have very high standards after reading popular and controversial website Adequacy.Org: I except my news to be accurate, clear, concise, and correct. David Icke is not.
After spending far too long and looking at his book covers (which I checked on Amazon to make sure they're actually books -- they are), I saw a link that chilled me to the bone: "ENTER THE MAIN SITE."
"MAIN SITE"??? What the bloody hades have I just spent the last 10 minutes doing everything in my power not to read? You mean there's MORE?
I can't read this stuff. After seeing several anti-Semantic scribblings (a Star Of David with each point labeled with the name of a "secret conspiracy group") and gross copyright violations (a "pyramid of manipulation" that's obviously a cheap knock-off of Gene Ray's harmonic Time Cube), I just couldn't read anymore.
I'll give him another chance later, but for now, I'm going to conclude that he's merely a troll (or scamming to sell books) and deserves as such to be ignored.
If you want to know why Lunix is so screwed up, just take a look at the people who use it. Idiocy.
