Kevin Barrett and David Icke on Disclosure, 9/11 and more

David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people


David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people…like The Washington Post‘s passive-aggressive book reviewer Ron Charles, who brags, shedding crocodile tears all the while: “I banned a book. Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year.”

When Charles saw that Barnes and Noble were displaying The Trigger he went ballistic:

“The Trigger, Icke’s new self-published book, is 900 pages of harebrained word vomit. It claims that the official explanation of Sept. 11, 2001, attacks is a lie to cover up the ‘massive and central involvement in 9/11 by the Israeli government, military, and intelligence operatives.’ This is consistent with his claims that the ‘satanic’ Mossad has had its hands in international drug running and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Naturally, Icke is also a student of that anti-Semitic classic The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. “Given that content, I thought it was odd to see Barnes & Noble promoting The Trigger, so I sent a note to B&N’s corporate office asking about it. A day later, a spokesperson told me: ‘This book is sold by an independent publishing distributor, and was ordered for a sub-section called ‘Conspiracies’ in some stores. After being alerted to the content, we are removing the book from all stores.’

“Now you can’t even find The Trigger on Barnes & Noble’s website…”

If Icke is such a nut, and The Trigger is just “harebrained word vomit,” why would anyone—least of all a Washington Post book reviewer who pretends to hate censorship—feel the need to have it banned?

  1. Don’t know much about the author, but that was a fascinating conversation to listen to. Thanks, Kevin!

  2. Read the Trigger and I agree that it is one of the best books on 9/11 I’ve read so and I’ve pretty much read ’em all. As far as the annal retentives complaining about the lack of footnotes. All I can say is get over it! Just read the damn book!

  3. Remember the movie “Lord of the Rings” where they had the looking glass called “Palantir, a dangerous thing” ?
