Is Alex Jones Crazy? U.S. Government Using Terrorism Against the American People

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

We've documented that - by any measure - America is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world.

But remember, terrorism is defined as:

The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

The American government has also been using violence and threats to intimidate and coerce the American public for political purposes.

For example, the U.S. government is doing the following things to terrorize the American public into docility and compliance:

* Labeling peaceful protest as terrorism

* Using homeland security laws to crush dissent

* Spying on all Americans

* Threatening to indefinitely detain American citizens without cause and without any due process

* Even threatening to kill any U.S. citizen on a whim

U.S. constitutional law has taught for hundreds of years that chilling the exercise of our liberties is as dangerous to freedom than directly suppressing them.

8. Even a guy like Alex Jones can be right about

 

some things, like the close to a total police state he mentioned they now have over there in England. It's true, they have cameras mounted everywhere, recording every move.

They even had weird big brother type public service posters announcing the government was always watching you, no joke.

you would say he was wrong. Ok...just a wee-bit simple-minded, but you are entitled to that way of thinking.

18. Jones has argued repeatedly the Sun rises in the west.

 

The evil nonsense of the sun rising in the east is a new world order plot to misdirect us and allow the UN and Illuminati the ability to grab our guns.

14. yes, and we should try to see the positive and stop allowing corporate media to divide us

 


We really do need to talk about homeland security and the TSA- it is bullshit!

And also the drug war, what a farce!

10. Problem.. reaction.. solution.....

 

Create the problem.. get the expected response.... and then present the solution. (The solution the govt controllers present is designed to mold the will of the people to the very idea that they had intended all along!)

Normally, they would not be able to control the travel of American Citizens... but if you train a youth to put explosives in his tennis shoes.. and then tell him to try and detonate them while landing in Detroit...(even though the is zero chance the explosives would detonate with a match....)

You have acheived the "Fear Factor". The American people will beg to be protected from these "terrorists".. at which time the TSA will step in and MORE THAN ACCOMODATE the wishes.

So now the TSA puts up illegal x-ray machines and controls the populaiton even more.

They have achieved their goals... and the American people BEG for more! See how easy that was?

Alex Jones predicted things 5 years ago that are coming true today.

So actually, he doesn't have a bad track record.

now somehow he has forgotten all that and blames everything on Obama, it's ridiculous, but he still had very valid things to say about Bush's Big Brother programs that progressives now defend.

26. I don't know who Alex Jones is but all of those points are true, although the last is nebulous.

 

Unless it is linked to the current development of 64 drone bases within the US, and the sale of drones to law enforcement.

Don't forget HR347, the anti-Occupy bill, which makes it a federal offence to mic check or protest in the vicinity of anyone protected by the secret service. Nice free speech zone there. It's not democracy if they don't listen.

Homeland Security and the TSA are violations of our Constitution, expensive ones, and I don't think we should just mindlessly accept Bush Big Brother programs and the slush funds that go with them.
