Independent Journalist David Icke Banned From Speaking In Australia
Dylan Charles, Editor
In 2009 I had the opportunity to sit front row at one of David’s eight hour long presentations, which was truly a mind-blowing experience. He was speaking in Bellingham, Washington, because the venue he had booked and sold out in Vancouver, Canada was retracted at the last minute and he was told by city officials not to speak in Vancouver. Not a word of anti-semitism or holocaust denial, as the mainstream media is claiming today.
I had the opportunity to interview David in 2013, and for 45 minutes he talked about how to take control of your life by being aware of how your perceptions are manipulated by the corporate and state media. Very empowering and enlightening, but you’ll never hear that interview, because YouTube deleted my channel in 2017 for ‘violating community guidelines. I, of course, was given no justification nor did I have any recourse.
The point is that David is dangerous to the state, but not because the world can’t tolerate someone’s educated opinion about this reality we all share. David is a threat to the state because he inspires people with his message of taking back control over your body, your mind, your spirit and your life, a message which is the precise antithesis of the mindset the state wants you to be in. Fear. Control. Threat. Scarcity. Security. Bullshit.
Let’s be honest. The state has the deadliest weapons, and the monopoly on force. They have unlimited wealth and can hire whoever and whatever armies to do their dirty work. They control the media and can financially ruin anyone at a moment’s notice. They can de-platform you, de-monetize you, de-index you, and shadow ban you. They can jail millions of people, get away with murder, cage people for having a plant, tax families into oblivion, blow people up all over the world, spy on everyone, everywhere, and poison the whole planet in the process.
… THEY ABSOLUTELY CANNOT ALLOW A ROOMFUL OF PEOPLE TO GATHER TO THINK AND DISCUSS FREEDOM.
Let that sink in.
An idea can be so dangerous to the state that it mustn’t be tolerated. An idea. A thought. Words. Interactions between concerned people are a threat to those who rule over us.
Here’s more on David’s ban from Activist Post:
Today the Australian government banned conspiracy researcher David Icke from entering the country for his multi-city speaking tour. Although he has spoken in Australia several times in the past decade, the government cited Icke’s skeptical views of vaccinations, global warming, and Israel’s policies as the reason for the ban.
“I was shocked and appalled to have received the news earlier today that my visa had been revoked just hours before boarding a flight to Australia by Immigration Minister David Coleman,” Icke said in statement after being informed of the ban.
“I have been a victim of a smear campaign from politicians who have been listening to special interest groups attempting to discredit my beliefs, my views and my character by spreading lies.”
Icke learned about the ban mere hours before his flight. He was scheduled to speak in in Melbourne on March 1st, Adelaide on the 5th, Brisbane on the 8th, Hobart on the 12th, and Sydney on the 14th.
“Does this mean that from this point forward, the Australian Government has given license to ban any media outlet, politician, citizen or public figure from entering this country based on their beliefs,” Icke asked.
“This is the creation of a blatantly Orwellian totalitarian state and says the Government believes they have the right to dictate what the nation can and cannot choose to hear. I am not forcing anybody to listen to my views, nor am I forcing anybody to believe them. I am simply stating my well-researched beliefs and giving the Australian public an open forum to consider another viewpoint.”
Apparently Australians are no longer free to hear opposing points of view.
David Icke explains the full details of his ban in the video below:
David Icke has been one of the foremost leaders of free expression and has greatly influenced us here at Activist Post. His 10-hour lectures, in particular, speak to his fortitude and his breadth of knowledge into areas most people would completely shut their minds to. Since the beginning, David has encountered defamation and restrictions on his information in nearly every form possible. But now David Icke details below what amounts to true censorship – any government that would silence the mere act of speaking on its soil. Australia is the latest country to now become a mockery in the eyes of anyone who values liberty. Here is what a petition at Change.org states about the situation:
Hundreds of people have paid good money to hear him speak and attend these events in advance. The Australian government today however has announced that they are cancelling Icke’s visa and not allowing him to enter the country citing the reason as “character” grounds.
And please do get a ticket for his World Tour … while you still can.
