Alex Jones / Info Wars
« on: March 05, 2017, 09:51:41 AM »
This fine gentleman has been discussed a lot on this forum over the years. Unfortunately, most such threads have died. Maybe he needs a dedicated thread.

IMO, if you are looking for reactionary or inflammatory news, the Info Wars Breaking News section is one of the best sources, arguably better than social media. (http://www.infowars.com/breaking-news/)

For the most part, his posts seem to be just plain conspiracy crazy, which is the main reason I put in here instead of in Politics:



Jones's style of conspiracy is most unsettling as he seems to be propagating the notion that Trump is antiestablishment, meaning that Trump is standing up to the NWO and the shadow corporate government.

Im looking forward to the point where Jones has to backtrack and start paintimg Trump as part of the conspiracy to make his schtick work.

I heard there's a conspiracy theory out there that Jones is really Bill Hicks and it makes him furious.

That Podcast "Cognitive Dissonance" has Jones on all the time. They rip him all the time. If he believes half the shit that he says he really is crazy.

His recent Joe Rogan interview was crazy.  At one point, he was talking about interdimensional child molesting spirit-vampires.  At another point, he was talking about an international consortium of pedophiles with an AI. 

It was much worse than the usual shit about goblin vomit and water that turns frogs gay.

I have three co-workers who believe every single word Jones says. One of them is a 55-yr old black woman and another is a twenty-something black man. Boggles my mind.

Jon Ronson seems to think Jones isn't putting it on. Ronson says he helped elevate Jones to a national platform when he invited Alex to infiltrate Bohemian Grove and while Ronson was having a relaxed laugh, Alex was sneaking around in fear of his own life.

One of the more interesting points about him that I've heard raised (I think on The Weeds podcast) is that if he was just a conspiracy nut the Trump-Russia connection is ripe for it.  Like there's something incredibly suggestive about all the connections between Trump and Putin and people not inclined to come up with conspiracy theories are having a hard time avoiding drawing these connections.  But this tool isn't having any issues with it, apparently.

This (among other reasons) is why I think it's all an act.  A cynical, disgusting act of a man who is exploiting the gullible for personal gain and gratification.

Is he an illuminati wonk? If he were then the Trump/Russia thing would be immaterial.
But I actually do suspect he is just a con artist.

You know the saying, flattery gets you everywhere. He has the ear of the POTUS, there is no way he is going to alienate a powerful and famous person no matter how insane he is. Though you're likely just as right.

I hope that doesn't help him one little bit.
