37. Ah, but we are talking about Obama here, though. I've tried to refute this insanity for 4 years now.

It went on steroids when Obama was sworn in. Wingnuts were convinced of his schemes prior to the election, not just because of being of black, but there was just too much diversity in his life.

It was at the same time Alex Jones and the patriot movement, moved more mainstream with the Tea Party and Ron Paul. These wingnuts didn't just appear suddenly as the Koch brothers began bankrolling the baggers and making a media show out of them. It had been building, along with Democrats who were disaffected by Bush and bought into conspiracy land. All the same themes, no wonder, the Koch family started the John Birch Society, and Jones fed on that:

http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-files/profiles/alex-jones

The numbers of people that became hard core wingnut in the latter Bush years and then voted consistently for baggers and libertarians matches the number of the DVDs sent out here. This has been part of the GOP ground game.

While not all of them are religious, I saw average Christians for whom the horror shows presented drew on the terrors taught to them as children and they succumbed to this irrational feat/hatred. The Christian Nationalist movement is built on the premise there is no other way to resist being forced to submit to Islam than to increase one's faith in what many of them had outgrown. In none of these is the freedom that our secular society and government granted given voice.

Atheism mocking them does not work to break the spell, it makes them resist being challenged of their childhood security. I have argued with those who want to go back to the 1950s to recreate that era in a sort of Disneyland fashion, a fantasy that never existed.

Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, also called Obsession, is a 2005 documentary film about the perceived threat of radical Islam to Western civilization. Using extensive Arab television footage it claims to give an "insider's view" of the hatred preached by radicals to incite global jihad and seek world domination. It also draws parallels between World War II's Nazi movement and Islamism and the West's response to those threats.

Wayne Kopping of South Africa co-wrote and directed the film. Raphael Shore, a Canadian-Israeli, co-wrote and produced the film, and is the founder of The Clarion Fund, the film's distributor. The movie received praise from conservative personalities in the media but others criticized it as Islamophobic with a political agenda, and for its association with pro-Israeli groups.

Segments of the movie were broadcast on CNN Headline News and in several specials on Fox News. The movie was also screened on 30 college campuses and Capitol Hill. The unusual distribution of 28 million free Obsession DVDs as an insert in over 70 newspapers predominantly in swing states before the United States 2008 presidential election, garnered much attention, with 5 newspapers refusing to distribute the DVD. National Public Radio reported that it was unclear as to who funded Clarion's distribution of the DVD.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsession:_Radical_Islam%27s_War_Against_the_West

Since then, they've swallowed a steady diet of Jones and Beck, and gone around the bend. And the GOP has pushed on with a string of movies this year, at least four that I know of, to keep them in this waking nightmare. This is just as serious to them as the worries of peasants in the Dark Ages about the changes in the calendar, the Apocalypse and all of it. The themes keep going on and people keep buying it.

11. He left out the dogwhistles, liberty, patriot and free-dumb!

Alex Jones knows how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Every week from his studio in Austin, Texas, he dives into red-faced tirades exposing the forces that threaten to enslave all human life on the planet. The conspiracy always boils down to about the same thing: eugenics operations, the militarization of the police, a cabal of wealthy corporations and the United Nations involved in a fiendish plot to control the world.

Five days a week, online and on more than 60 radio stations nationwide, “The Alex Jones Show,” along with a pair of websites he runs (Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com), serves as the tumultuous showcase for his overactive imagination — a worldview governed by logic-leaping deductions and heedless pronouncements. His website is chock full of apocalyptic headlines and ads for products like “recession-proof coins” and manuals on How to Survive Martial Law in America. On the air, he’s given to stream-of-consciousness rants.

Influenced heavily by the conspiracy-minded John Birch Society, Jones ran unsuccessfully for a Texas House seat in 2000 as a Republican but said he doesn’t follow the platform of either of the two major parties. He has described his own politics as libertarian.

Jones has accused the federal government of involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9/11 attacks, said that the Branch Davidian cultists in Texas were purposely murdered by authorities, claimed that FEMA is secretly building concentration camps for liberty-loving citizens, and issued a series of videos with hair-raising, B horror-film titles. A sampling: “911: The Road to Tyranny,” “Police State 3: Total Enslavement,” “The Masters of Terror: Exposed,” “New World Order: Blueprint of Madmen” and “The Obama Deception: The Mask Comes Off.”

Although it hardly seems possible, Jones’ fecund imagination now seems to be sprouting even more conspiracy theories than before.

Last year, for example, after Jared Lee Loughner went on his January 2011 rampage in Tucson, Ariz., killing six and wounding U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Jones told Rolling Stone: “This whole thing stinks to high heaven. … My gut tells me this was a staged mind-control operation. The government employs geometric psychological-warfare experts that know exactly how to indirectly manipulate unstable people through the media.”

It’s simply a matter of finding the truth, Jones says. Or something like that.

In August 2011, he featured on Infowars an article that called the Department of Homeland Security’s year-old “If you see something, say something” terrorism-awareness campaign a racist conspiracy to “characterize predominantly white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists.”

The program, which actually encourages people to consider “behavior, rather than appearance” when considering whether to report suspicious activity, entails a series of public service announcements designed to drive home that point. What piqued Jones was a 10-minute PSA in which most of the “terrorists” are white, while the citizens who report their suspicious activities are all minorities. He milked the issue for at least a month. “What do you think of rebranding that the terrorists aren’t Al Qaeda anymore?” he said on his Aug. 18 radio show. “It’s that veteran, it’s that gun owner, it’s that farmer … it’s that white person. Whites are the new Al Qaeda.”

Besides exploiting racial animosities, Jones’s conspiracy theories often appeal to the fears of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement.

At the movement’s previous peak in the 1990s, the “black helicopter” was a symbol of its cartoonish insistence that the government would soon be coming after freedom-loving dissidents who knew the truth about the New World Order. Jones gave these fears a 21st century update in an October 2011 online broadcast. He obsessed over news that the sheriff of Montgomery County, Texas, had used a federal grant to buy an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (also known as a drone) called the ShadowHawk. The laptop-controlled, miniature helicopter comes equipped with a powerful zoom camera, infrared heat-seeking optics and crowd-stopping cartridges.

To Jones, this was not simply a police department taking advantage of the latest law enforcement technologies but a glimpse at the insidious machinery agents of the New World Order are deploying in the night skies in advance of martial law. “They’ve got large unmanned drones,” Jones warned. “They’ve got small drones. … And they’ve got million-dollar systems up there flying around with cops in control of them, surveilling you. And now they’re mounting them with ground-penetrating radar that looks right through your wall, while you’re on the toilet, having sex with your wife.”

13. Did you notice he reset the date for Doomsday?

The Rapture industry is desperately seeking another doomsday in case the Mayan deal doesn't work out. In the video, Van Impe quotes wannabe Antichrist Henry Kissinger who says the world's entire population will be micro-chipped by 2017. AKA "The Mark of the Beast," this will signal the beginning of the Last Days leading up to Armageddon and the Second Coming. In the meantime, the completion of this micro-chipping project will -- presumably -- occur shortly before President Obama's second term ends. But, ah-hah, Kissinger says Obama will already be the Antichrist-elect. This clever scenario leaves a little wiggle room for the exact date of Doomsday so Van Impe and the other charlatans can continue to peddle fear, survival goods, underground homes and so forth.

And thank you, Mr. Carpenter, for bringing this video to our attention. It would seem the reports of "Dr." Van Impe's rapture have been greatly exaggerated.

I was knocking on doors for Obama and a lady said she couldn't vote for him because she thinks he's the anti-Christ. I went home and made this video.



That was four years ago, and idiots still think he's not only the anti-Christ, but a secret Muslim who drinks beer, smokes and eats bacon.

anyone going to go back and call them on it?
point out that it was a bunch of fear mongering for political purposes?

or what do they think? if romney wins the world avoids the book of revelations??

i don't get it, if, like the guy says at the end, they want Jesus to return quickly, if they believe all this about obama, why aren't they out canvassing for him and doing GOTV work??
