David Icke is upset with Sega
David Icke, a man whose interests run the gamut from informing people about large-scale banking fraud (ok) to “the Reptilian Agenda” (um .. ), is none too happy with Sega’s decision to withdraw permission for him to use a song featured in the Total War series. Icke had planned to use “We are all one!” (which appears in Medieval II: Total War) as part of a talk he’s giving at the Wembley Arena in October.
According to a statement on Icke’s own website, “The financial agreement had been made with Sega, but then they withdrew permission to use the song because ‘We did not want our music to be associated with a “controversial” figure’.”
He goes on to list a promotional blurb for Total War: Rome II (a bit of an error, since the song is used in Medieval II) and contrast it with his own anti-war message. It’s also noted that the song is “freely available on youtube”. Well, yes, but whoever put it up probably didn’t license it.
The statement then lists a few email addresses for people at Sega and Total War developers Creative Assembly, and asks supporters to make their feelings “politely known”.
If you have a spare 50 minutes, Jon Ronson’s “Secret Rulers of the World” documentary series takes a look at David Icke and his views (at least, his views at the time of that documentary).
