Cenk Uygur To Alex Jones During Heated Interview: ‘Have You Ever Sought Mental Health Treatment?’

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Rhiannon12866 (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: www.mediaite.com

Host of The Young Turks Cenk Uygur interviewed gun advocate and conservative talk radio host Alex Jones about everything from his appearance on Piers Morgan to his views on Glenn Beck and posed a tongue-in-cheek question that may have been secretly serious: “Have you ever sought mental health treatment?”

Jones simply laughed and quipped, “America needs mental health treatment if they don’t have a pulse.” He went on to explain:

2. Lovely. Another conman who can whip up a false patriotic fervor

among the stupid class.

I guess the low hanging fruit is irresistible.

3. Of course not, Cenk.

Truly insane people never believe that they're insane.

4. Alex Jones

is a liar of the first order. Someone who continually lies and never takes correction MIGHT be a sociopath.

I know there used to be some fans of his that posted here at DU. Posting links to his sites has been forbidden for a long time. Several years ago (in the old conspiracy dungeon) I cautioned some who were talking about his material. I told them then that if Jones ever tells his audience to "run for the hills", in my opinion, it would be a BIG mistake to follow that advice.

He is killing himself with his weight and rants. Reminds me of Brietbart that way, all the time.

5. Did I hear that his mental state could make him unable to purchase a gun?

That is the story I heard but never saw any confirmation....
Jones is not someone I think should have access to firearms. But I have a low opinion of guns and those who love them so.

6. I seen and heard it...

...on Current TV. it really was a riot. Cenk could interview the devil himself with his candor. I laughed my butt off when he asked Jones that question. I just got a kick out of Cenk's questions, not particularly Alex's answers. Got to where I couldn't wait till the next question. Cenk rocks!

7. He sure needs it

I don't know what his response is supposed to mean. That is no more coherent than anything else he says.

9. Jones is just a little man who's gained fame

and even some fortune out of his crazy, off the wall rants. What did Barnum say? "there's a sucker born every minute." America is full of them.

16. Because the ultimate goal

is to reduce all political discussion down to a cage fight and sell it to wwor tv. We haven't hit rock bottom yet.

18. Locking, sorry, this is background/analysis, not breaking news.

But this would be excellent in Videos & Multimedia. Please consider reposting there. Thanks!
