When asked which book she would take were she to be an isolated castaway, the author of The Color Purple chose Icke’s Human Race Get Off Your Knees.
But, of course, Alice, a brilliant author, poet and activist, is suddenly 'bizarre' and 'weird' the moment she is in any way complimentary about me. Yawn, yawn. If media people like Liam O'Brien only realised how numbingly predictable they are.
'I am a Dalek, I am a Dalek ... David Icke is mad so anyone who likes his books must be mad ... activate, activate, exterminate, exterminate ... I am a Dalek, I am a Dalek ...'
Why don't the Liam O'Briens of the media (the vast majority) put aside their ignorance and arrogance long enough to produce a touch, even a smear, of humility and inquisitive open-mindedness sufficient to ask the simple and obvious question: why would a highly intelligent woman like Alice Walker say such things?
Ooops, sorry, I am being silly now.
'Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.' – Albert Einstein
‘Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologise for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right, and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are in a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.’ – Mahatma Gandhi
