David Icke: What Happened to English conspiracy theorist and former sports broadcaster David Icke?
David Vaughan Icke is an English conspiracy theorist and a former footballer and sports broadcaster. He has written over 20 books, self-published since the mid-1990s, and spoken in more than 25 countries.
David Icke, a British conspiracy theorist, has been prohibited from entering the Netherlands and the entire Schengen region of the European Union for two years due to concerns that he may “disturb public order.”
Icke issued a letter that the Dutch immigration services had given to him on Thursday on behalf of State Secretary for Justice and Security Eric van der Burg, alleging that he had been barred by the “fascist Dutch administration.”
In 1990, Icke visited a psychic who told him he was on Earth for a purpose and would receive messages from the spirit world. This led him to claim in 1991 to be a “Son of the Godhead” and that the world would soon be devastated by tidal waves and earthquakes. He repeated this on the BBC show Wogan. His appearance led to public ridicule.
Books Icke wrote over the next 11 years developed his world view of a New Age conspiracy. Reaction to his endorsement of an antisemitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, in The Robots’ Rebellion (1994) and in And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995) led his then publisher to decline further books, which he has self-published since then.
