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.


or 4) Morgan just wants to speak to the guy that wants him deported and hear his reasoning.

Philbb: hubiestubert: That is some weapons grade crazy right there...

Alex Jones is to conspiracy theorists as Westboro Baptist is to homophobes. They take it to a whole new level that can only exist at places where ous dimension intersects another dimension that can help contain that much crazy.

Jones makes his money selling stuff to dupes and schizophrenics, whereas WBC makes their money off of enraging people and then suing everyone they can.


Pretty much. HIS brand of crazy is salable. It drives up interest in websites, it pushes up ratings in markets, it is very much an act, but one that the rubes haven't gigged onto yet. Beck? They began to realize that maybe, just maybe, he was just working a con, but it's hard to punch a fat boy who is crying so often. Breitbart died before he could be exposed to the Idiot Brigade--or rather, before he could be exposed in such a way that he had his dick, his hand, and his agency all up in their business in such a way that they realized that he was just conning them.

That is really the sad thing. This ISN'T a good con. This isn't even a decent con. It's just spouting crazy, and hoping that a few rubes will bite, and playing the numbers that there's a sucker born every minute, and banking on having enough of them in a market that will pass on his ravings to more rubes, and build up a "movement" based on idiots playing the whisper game. It's obvious, it lacks any subtlety, and as someone who used to play a few cons back in the day--for fairly penny ante stakes, and more for fun than profit--it offends me watching someone this hamfisted.  I'll give him credit, he's making money off the gullible, and to be fair, spending it on his tripe is probably a bit less dangerous than them sinking cash into more guns and ammo, but for the same money, they could be building their own shoddily built bunkers to await the A-DERP-O-Lypse, and that is money that could be spent on real contractors and real materials. Plus, there's the chance that the shoddily built bunkers might collapse as they test them before their families are coerced into them, and that would only service the gene pool and cut down on the nurture factor of the passing on of Weapons Grade Crazy...

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.

The thing that most drives me crazy about this whole debate is, ironically, the lack of discussion of mental health care. While idiots continue to say "If we arm people in schools they'll think twice!", they'll probably be right, they WILL think twice. Then they'll either plan and plot more carefully how to do it or they'll go to someplace that's not a school. Say, a movie theater.

If these guys get the health care they desperately need, they're less likely to kill...you know...ANYbody...

You know, that exploitative fear of the death on CNN of those killed in your backyard, yet the silence of your concerns over the thousands of women, children AND men killed abroad as their agony and screams are silenced through war propaganda you brush off as meaningless or justified by the authorities that be.

You call yourselves liberals, democrats, republicans or just a concerned person.

I was wondering where Alex Jones had gone now.

He was a regular on RT news but was far to extreme for even them! He would go on at lenght about how the UN was trying to take over the country and put all you gun nuts away in secret internment camps that no body else can find with something called Agenda 21, an action plan of the UN related to sustainable development! Link

He is behind one of the movements to get Texas to secede! Most likely so he can run for president of the newly independent Texas 2.0!

When I first heard him on the radio he was paying the station for the airtime! Using money donated to him by listeners so he can keep carrying the "message" to the true unbelievers!

Its a nice strategy there. Take nutbag/asshat Alex Jones and let him present very good points about human violence in general compared to actual gun violence, but also encourage him to go on his typical insane conspiracy theory warble garble in order to make his well stated points also sound crazy by association. Also this makes any pro-gun rights people look crazy, again by association.

In this interview, Alex Jones wasn't just letting his crazy side show, but his incredibly childish side. He was a complete ass. Pierce Morgan's "points" where pointless, and neither he nor Jones seemed genuinely interested in having an actual debate/interview/whatever. It was a turd fight. But Jones's "presentation" actually managed to make Morgan's argument seem like the reasonable one.

If there ever was a conspiracy against the 2nd Amendment, it is letting Alex Jones be it's spokesperson. Honestly, that might be a real conspiracy right there. Let's see if Alex Jones tells us all about it.

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.

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.

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.

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.


THIS.

First thing I thought when I heard about the Pier-Morgan/Alex Jones circle-jerk is that CNN has hit rock-bottom. Second thing I thought was that Jones probably has more fans than Piers, which supports the assertion that CNN has hit rock-bottom.

It makes me sad that such a show could even exist in today's society.

Radio preachers are also a hoot. found one the other day talking about reaching the "sacrificial quota" IE the number of babies that need to be killed/aborted for Jesus to show up. He said we are nearly there, but needed to crank it up to get there faster. It's odd hearing an anti-abortion nutter hoping for more abortions so that Jesus gets here faster and stop the whole mess.
/right now I am listening to alex trying to sing Metallica. outside of a street side hobo or crack head you don't see this stuff too often.

Princess Ryans Knickers: But Alex! I thought Jesus said you'd always be safe if you just pray to Him and believe in Him! Not to mention, you've got a gun, right?


LOL! JESUS JOKE!!! SO CREATIVE!

Alex Jones, while batshiat insane, never talks about him being religious or any religion really (other than saying it is a tool used by governments to control people).

For those who don't know, Alex Jones made his fame by predicting 9/11.

The Larch: hubiestubert: That is really the sad thing. This ISN'T a good con. This isn't even a decent con. It's just spouting crazy, and hoping that a few rubes will bite, and playing the numbers that there's a sucker born every minute

But that's the thing... pretending to be batshiat crazy is a good con when your costs of delivery are low enough. If you want to con people one at a time, in person, you have to spend time to carefully choose a gullible rube. You don't want to waste your time with someone who catches on halfway through, and you avoid having people catch on by hiding your true intentions.

But when you con people on TV, the Radio, or Spam emails, you want the gullible rubes to choose you. You avoid having people catch on by being so blatantly obvious in your con that only the stupidest, most gullible people will even start to listen, and everyone else in the whole world ignores them.

It's the same reason that Nigerian spammers go out of their way to make it obvious that they're sending you a scam email. The only people who bother to reply are so far beyond stupid that the spammers can sell them anything.


No, it's just an obvious con. Don't get me wrong, I can respect being at least up front about it, but I prefer to see folks at least show some modicum of art to it. There are standards...

Cybernetic: Morgan believes that Jones is representative of the political right


Alex Jones' beliefs are espoused by Republicans in office. Elected Republicans.

I am not playing the game like conservatives who say some obscure blogger represents THE LEFT!

Alex Jones is a mainstream Republican.

wookiemonster: 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.

_______________

You do realize that Morgan was fired from his previous job for making up news stories and had to testify in British court on hacking celebrities phones in England, right? Morgan should be a key grip, or best boy on a set right now, not the host of his own prime time show.

Tinfoil hat, or not, Jones said the truth last night, and he was right to be a little flustered.

While those in the news proclaim a non bias and that they don't want to take all of the guns away, just "assault weapons," Diane Feinstein already introduced a bill last week that practically takes away everyone's guns if it passes. The news attempts to create this idea that we all need to just sit down and think these things out, all the while the wheels are already in motion to not just limit certain firearms, but ban them.


Case in point.  Jones is only saying in public what lots of people are thinking and saying in private.  Thank you for confirming this for us.

Yes, because Jones is all by himself in that nut and kook category.

All you have to do is read the comments from this Politico article.  He is by no means alone.

FlashHarry: this guy needs to be on TV ALL the time.


He's on the radio three hours a day and has his own Internet "newscast" every night, so he's pretty available. Last Friday, he interviewed John McAfee in one of the greatest pieces of performance art ever. (About 50 minutes in) Andy Kaufman bows down to this McAfee guy. He's a fugitive software millionaire criss-crossing central America while trying to warn everybody that he's uncovered a huge terrorist plot to mass poison Americans with ricin, all while dodging every lawman in the hemisphere.

"Hatriots?" I don't like these assholes and their typical audience either, but that sounds petty even by blog standards. And I'm one of the biggest libtards here.

Most of my posts are laced with profanity and bad jokes about Republican genitalia, but when writing a column, even for a blog, you gotta keep your sh*t in line. In other words, [yourenothelping.jpg]
