Alex Jones makes me appreciate David Icke. They're both batshit crazy, but Icke seems much less hate driven.
(Edit-I just realized that Icke has been accused of anti-semtism, but he's also said " “If we want a world of love and peace,” he says through stifled sobs, “we have to be loving and peaceful with everyone, even people we don’t like.”
The best part of the accusations of anti-Semitism that have been leveled against Icke is that they come from an argument that "reptilian aliens" actually just means "Jews" and the whole thing is sort of a dog whistle, and Icke has always insisted that no, he actually means literal reptilian aliens. So his defense amounts to, "No, I really am just fucking crazy."
Apparently the accusations come from his saying that he thought The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was written by lizardmen, and somebody (it might've been the Anti-Defamation League? I don't remember offhand) said, "That means Jews, right?" and he was like, "What?! No!"
It's easy to understand why a group like the ADL would assume Icke was an anti-Semite - the vast majority of conspiracy theories/theorists are hugely anti-Semitic. For what it's worth, though, think Icke is one of the depressingly few exceptions to that rule: I think he's 100% genuine in his beliefs. His crazy fucking beliefs.
