It’s a conspiracy!
At least it is to Alex Jones. And I do mean everything. Even, possibly, the Oklahoma tornadoes. From MediaMatters:
Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones explained to his audience today how the government could have been behind the devastating May 20 tornado in Oklahoma.
Following a long tangent, Jones returned to the caller’s subject. While he explained that “natural tornadoes” do exist and that he’s not sure if a government “weather weapon” was involved in the Oklahoma disaster, Jones warned nonetheless that the government “can create and steer groups of tornadoes.”
According to Jones, this possibility hinges on whether people spotted helicopters and small aircraft “in and around the clouds, spraying and doing things.” He added, “if you saw that, you better bet your bottom dollar they did this, but who knows if they did. You know, that’s the thing, we don’t know.”
Either Alex Jones is a conspiracy monger for profit, promoting stories he doesn’t believe for a second to earn a paycheck, or he is one of the most paranoid delusional people on planet Earth. Either he is exploiting the mentally ill, or he needs to see a doctor. He is suggesting that the United States government has a secret weather weapon that can direct tornadoes to destroy targets of their choosing. I wonder if it hurts to be that delusional?
For those of you with conservative friends, next time you are discussing politics with them and they bring up that right wing hero, Matt Drudge and the Drudge Report, ask them about Alex Jones. Since
Jones’ biggest ally has been Matt Drudge, whose heavily trafficked Drudge Report website has linked to at least 244 different articles at Jones’ Infowars website since April 2011.
In the midst of the controversy over Jones’ comments about the Boston bombings, Drudge announced that he had “privately told friends” that 2013 would be the “year of Alex Jones.”
In case you are wondering what his comments about the Boston bombing were, he claims they were a false flag operation by the US government. You know, just like 9-11.
In April, Jones garnered attention for labeling the Boston Marathon bombings a “false flag” event staged by the U.S. government. Over the years, Jones has endorsed a wide array of paranoid conspiracies, including alleging that the U.S. government carried out or was somehow involved in the 9-11 attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing, and recent mass shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary school and the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.
It scares me horribly that I see prisonplanet bumper stickers at least once a day. Alex Jones should be a joke, someone that thinking people point and laugh at. Instead we have Matt Drudge claiming that 2013 will be his year.
