Who on DU thought that Alex Jones

was worth listening to at some point during the Dubya administration?

I'm guilty as charged.

1. I used to listen just to hear how weird he would get.

He's from outer space.

It's all an act.

4. Yeah, but it's HIS act!

Everybody has an act. Some play more objective than others.

Never liked bullshit artists regardless of who is in office.

5. Had never heard of him until he went ...

... off on Piers Morgan like a raving, slavering lunatic. I'm not sure I've ever seen ANYONE so unhinged on television as he was that night.

8. I'd heard of him but hadn't heard him speak until that

He's completely whacked.

6. No.

Never listened to him, but looked at the sites from time to time, and found them horrifyingly bad. He was always a right-libertarian and full of bizarre theories. The first time I came across him, he was suggesting that the Clinton government had organized the Oklahoma City bombing in order to restrict 'state rights'.

7. I used to be a short wave radio fanatic and he would broadcast there 17 years ago.

I knew from the moment he opened his mouth there was something wrong with him. He is delusional. Then I heard him tell stories using news reports that I was familiar with locally. He would twist the stories to look like the government was using local police to institute a one world government. The word pathetic does not even come close to what this cowardly idiot is about.

Another one is Jeff Rense. Look out for him. He'll be the next big mouth to try to mainstream his image.

10. He used to be a darling of the anti Dubyas

Myself included, for a short while there.

While nuts, he wasn't quite as unhinged as now, though, back then.

But nobody here bought into W's FEMA camps and W never stepping down? Never quite bought into that myself, though I'll admit to having some doubts during my weakest moments.

I come in peace here, folks

11. He was a nut then, is a nut now. Conspiracy theorists & followers are like cultists

 

very easy to get caught up in it, and see things that someone spewing one of the CTS say

because if you believe in the person saying it, you see what they are saying and it all makes sense

until their real agenda and angle comes out

and the spell is broken and you realize that the end of the breadcrumb trail was put there by the CTer in the first place

the CTer sees the end, and makes a path from the start to that point

I.E.-
deep throat in watergate
(I have said this before).

I never understood all these years why Woodward & Bernstein were W&B on everything but Deep throat, which was just Woodward and NOT Bernstein.
Until later on and we know what type of person Woodward was and Bernstein wasn't.

Deep throat led directly to what DT and those involved with DT wanted Woodward to be led to.And it happened.

The big picture was missed, but the outcome was a given, once people believed those breadcrumbs to be true.

Which was to use the shortcomings of Nixon to achieve the overthrow of Nixon.
(that democratic voters and the media hated him, just made it all easier.
Without that overthrow, the Bush's themselves never would have achieved their power.

With the Alex Jones & CTers out there, it is very easy to achieve what is wanted

one realizes soon, that they make their living spewing these things


In everyman terms, anyone remember the Kolchak the Night Stalker series?
The two movies, then weekly episodes
One person discovers a wacked up thing every single week?
Yet it spawned the David Duchovney show X factor.
again, finding one CT after another.

12. Not me

I've been following Alex Jones since he was an up-and-coming young crackpot on Austin Public Access. There's never been a tinfoil hat he hasn't tried on for size. Nothing he has ever said or will say in the future has a shred of credibility.

14. Never followed his crap AND never believed the official account of 9/11

Sorry if that breaks anyone's syllogism
