Cybernetic: Apos: cman: Alex Jones threads are my fav. It is the only time where partisanship can be transcended with many o' us agreeing that he is a moran

When Glen Beck lambasts you, you know you belong in a padded room.

That's what irritates me about the whole Piers Morgan/Alex Jones thing. Alex Jones is a nut and a kook, and I can only think of a few reasons for Piers Morgan to give him airtime, none of which reflect well on Morgan:

1) Morgan believes that Jones is representative of the political right, in which case Morgan is an ignorant fool.
2) Morgan wants to falsely portray Jones as representative of the political right, in which case Morgan is a disingenuous partisan hack.
3) This was a ratings stunt, in which case Morgan is sleazeball who will put anything on the air if it grabs a few extra eyeballs.


well there's:

4) Morgan invited him on because he's been criticized by Jones prior to this interview and wanted to debate him on the issue.

Thank God there is another American that agrees with me that free speech is only protected under the constitution for Americans and foreign nationals have no right to express their opinion in any shape or form in America!

So you think the military is too incompetent to defend the country, traitor?

US gun nuts are scary on an individual basis, I give them that, they could pop up anywhere and start shooting. But this notion that they might rise up to fight off an attempted government move to fascism or an invasion is simply ludicrous. I don't trust these people to tie their shoes in the morning let alone take on an organized force, especially one that has napalm and apache helicopters.

Gun nuts give themselves vastly more credit than their grade school education affords them.

CNN the liberal Fox News.

CNN's Sandy Hook coverage was extremely uninformed and obviously pro gun control.

For example "we don't know whether Lanza was living with his mother." That's something anybody with an internet connection and a little knowledge could find out in two minutes. As soon as they said that, I had Lanza and Lanza's mother's home address in about that time. Then they said he shot them with an AR, revised to the AR was in the car and he only had two pistols, revised to he had two pistols and an AR in the school. Then there was the whole interviewing survivors thing. Seriously utterly terrible "journalism."

If they weren't trying to push an agenda, they wouldn't have had anything to report. They also wouldn't have shiat for ratings. It's the exact same as Fox News. Both just spout the crap they think their side of the political spectrum wants to hear and claims it's news.

I don't know what is more interesting to listen to. Alex Jones ranting about the interview or the numbers station (Cuban?) I just heard blasting on 5.855mhz. Always something crazy to listen to on the HF bands. I could care less about Piers Morgan, but if you think Alex Jones has much sanity you need to seek help.

Piers Morgan doesn't have free speech he's a foreign national here on a working visa not a resident alien and more specifically a journalist. The supreme court ruled on that years ago.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: On behalf of gun owners everywhere, I'd like to say this: Alex Jones does not speak for us.


Then you should really work harder to shut him up, because you need to realize that the more visible a person is and the louder he talks, the more he IS the default voice for a cause, no matter how much he doesn't represent that cause. To people who don't know much about the gun debate except what they hear as they flip the radio dial, Alex Jones DOES speak for gun owners; just like to people who don't know much about politics, Rush Limbaugh DOES speak for the Republican party and various hatemongering preachers ARE speaking for Christians. Because nobody else seems to be doing it, so far as the average uninformed person is concerned.

It's nice that you are disavowing Alex Jones; but nobody else seems to be doing it, and certainly nobody is doing it out loud or in public; so he is going to be the default spokesman for gun rights unless or until somebody saner speaks up. And sane, rational gun owners need to realize this, and realize why so many people think gun owners are all raving lunatics. It's because the ones they see on the news and hear on the radio ARE raving lunatics.

There's a difference between discourse and ignorant bluster. What Alex Jones does, and what he did on Piers Morgan is an example of ignorant bluster. Alex Jones spoke over Piers Morgan the entire time, and made himself look the fool. If you want to win an argument, listen to the other person's points and turn them against them. Don't yell and look like an ass.

Alex Jones feeds on the fears of the stupid with his conspiracy theories. He's the loudest asshole in the room, so people who actually have rational arguments rather than paranoid theories have stopped arguing with him. Even coming out and saying "Alex Jones doesn't represent most gun owners" is stupid because anyone that listens to him for a second should know that he doesn't represent anyone but the lunatic fringe. 47% of the U.S. are gun owners. The idea that they're all represented by a blustery paranoid schizophrenic is laughable.

We've all heard what Piers Morgan has to say like a million times.
We need to get more people on the mainstream media with some
other points of view besides the bleeding heart liberals which they
all seem to be. It doesn't really matter the network, it is that anybody
that does not have the same mainstream view is a "nutjob". It kind
of reminds me of Howard Dean might have yelled, might have been
the P.A. system... might of been the closed mindedness of the press.
Don't shoot the messenger, (no pun intended), did you understand
the message? Obviously not.

He's the loudest asshole in the room, I might agree with that.

so people who actually have rational arguments rather than paranoid theories have stopped arguing with him. I don't agree with this, as I find Piers Morgan is very irrational most of the time, Alex Jones is just what I expected. That is how he always is. Piers on an hour every day, we've heard enough of him. Maybe he should go back to the UK, give Alex his show, I'm sure it would have much better ratings.

dognose4: The 2nd amendment is not about goose hunting. It's about arming citizens and defending your country.


Actually, I'm pretty sure it had something to do with protecting yourself from your country. With America finishing off England, we needed a way to protect ourselves from allowing us to become another England. Our founding fathers wanted to protect against tyranny, and allow us to overthrow dictators.

Why with government becoming a "nanny state", do they want to take our guns (new restrictions, buy-backs, etc.)? Is it for safety, or something more? Gun control works, Just ask Adolf Hitler.

Alex Jones just got downgraded from "Nutjob" to "Slightly Odd".

You may consider re-reading what I wrote. I never said Piers Morgan was rational (I don't watch his program so I have no opinion on him). What I said was rational people don't argue with him or take him seriously because his arguments are unsupported and his contentions are based on fear and a loose attenuation or understanding of the truth.

I know about Alex Jones, I watched most of his movies through 2006 (I had a crazy neighbor in Austin who insisted). He makes monsters out of shadows and profits off the fear he instills in others.

Alex Jones is as big a propagandist as CNN or Fox News. But in his defense, I think Alex Jones is too stupid to realize it.
