THE LIZARD PEOPLE THING IS JUST CODEWORDED ANTISEMITISM??? ITS NOT ABOUT ALIENS??? FCUXK
(With reference to this post here.)
Sadly, yes. The guy who came up with the Reptoid Hypothesis, David Icke, is a huge crypto-fascist, in spite of also being a New Age guru. Some of his defenders claim that his stuff is really a Swiftian satire of neofascism, but, well, how well does the whole “it’s just satire!” thing ever work out? Suffice it to say, while there are some folks who, when they talk about shape-shifting lizard people from Alpha Draconis, they really mean shape-shifting lizard people from Alpha Draconis, there’s a very large contingent for whom “secretly a lizard” is a code-phrase for “secretly Jewish”.
(Same deal with the “ancient astronauts” nonsense. The leading authority on that, Erich von Däniken, dreamed it up in order to explain away the architectural achievements of non-white cultures, particularly those of Northern Africa and the Middle East. He explicitly cites the inherent superiority of the white race as the reason the Romans wouldn’t have needed help from aliens.)
