Alex Jones and the Prophecy of Doom

There are a few people who inexplicably have a role in our national discourse, regardless of how far to the fringe they are and should be relegated, who kind of leave me without much to say. One of them is, of course, Alex Jones. Yeah, there are people who actually take him seriously -- but who gives a shit? He's a fucking conspiracist lunatic and doesn't deserve to be granted even the tiniest amount of credence.

Proof of that, at least as far as my own view of him is concerned, is the fact that I think I've mentioned him around here maybe once or twice in almost seven years. Still, last night's hysterical meltdown by him on Piers Morgan's show -- in which he almost literally foamed at the mouth over the 1776-style revolution that he promises will be the result of any attempt at sensible gun control -- really deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. Believe it or not, there actually are people who listen to this idiot, although not enough to make him as dangerous to the establishment as he thinks he is.

The problem, though, is that his furious, fetishistic passion for guns gives you a pretty good idea what common sense gun control advocates are up against. Remember, this is a guy who believes that guns are needed to defend against the black U.N. helicopters that are going to fly into Anytown, USA and take all of us under the control of the New World Order. He's fucking insane. His beliefs aren't in any way based in reality. And he should be completely ignored -- no matter how loud he is.

Anyway, watch Jones's warm bukkake of crazy for yourself. It really is something to behold.

Incidentally, the above video comes courtesy of someone with the screen-name "Save Our Sovereignty" whose profile pic is a Ron Paul logo. Need I say more?

I find it extraordinary that someone made me like Piers Morgan.

Could you imagine a cold bukkake? That would take all the fun out of it.

I used to listen to Alex Jones sometimes on WJFK out of Austin. I was based at Fort Hood then, and the talk radio airwaves were lit up with all manner of paranoid nonsense, but Jones stood taller and crazier than them all. He would insist that unmarked helicopters had his house under surveillance. But his wildest claim -- that President Clinton had secretly placed UN troops on American military bases in preparation for the New World Order -- actually resulted in the Oklahoma militia trying to visit my barracks.

As a linguist, I was stationed with a hundred other speakers of foreign languages. Our barracks was located right at the center of the post garrison area on the main road, and we shared the building with an engineer unit, so you can imagine that our jabbering in Russian and Arabic tended to spur rumors and attract attention.

The FBI stopped the militia freaks on their way to visit my unit with AK-47s. Jones decried the arrests as a "false flag." See, anytime a militia goon acts on his insane conspiracy theories, it's a "false flag" and not an example of Jones' own rhetoric in action. He's not responsible for those crazy people out there, see?

So Alex Jones is inconsequential and not worth discussing...until his avid listeners decide to come kill you. Or they show up en masse at health care town halls to push "The Obama Deception" and rant about socialist health care as the first step on the slippery slope to FEMA death camps. Or Glenn Beck steals his act and mainstreams it. Those are the only times we discuss the inconsequential Alex Jones.

I tried watching the video for more than 30 seconds, and had to stop because I was getting a serious headache listening to Jones scream his nonsense. That lunatic really shouldn't get any media time, but he's obviously on because CNN thinks it will bring in some ratings. It must makes me want to watch them less, actually.

If you thought that video was amazing you should see Alex Jones go Super Saiyan: http://bit.ly/VRBDQs

Verily, he is an odd fellow.

Fun fact: The Nazis eased up on gun control. It was the government before they took control that tightened gun control, because Nazis and Communists were shooting each other, and other people, on the streets on a regular basis.
