Alex Jones: huckster or mental illness? [View all]

The act of a snake oil salesman or does he suffer from some sort of mental illness like delusions of grandeur, paranoia, persecution complex. One might also ask that if a person is willing to go on national TV for big bucks looking like an unhinged person, if that is also a sign that he's had some sort of break down.

What is frightening is that he seemingly has a lot of far left wing followers. Jones himself has tried to claim the 'Occupy' mantle by trying to tie some of his New World Order protests as Occupy protests. He's trying to cast a wider net to sell his DVDs, he's got a lot of DVDs. Jones is an old style John Birch Society freeper type. He rants and raves about flouride, Jones could be seen as Slim Pickens and Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper from Dr. Strangelove all rolled up into one. He rants about the end of the world, he'll sell you freeze dried food and gold. He rants about flouride, yup water filters sold right there on his website. He tries to steal air time by getting "arrested" at certain protests, 9/11 truther protests in NY, Bilderberg, etc.

The guy has a small media empire. Who ever compared him to Glenn Beck is right on the money. Except, Jones is more dangerous in the Andrew Breitbart vein. His dog whistles could lead to somebody really losing it and unloading an assault rifle into a Federal building.

Does Jones believe what he is saying or is it just an act?
