Agit8dChop is right. But that is exactly why Alex Jones is wrong.
Every AMERICAN should be listening, and Every AMERICAN should be marching on DC.
But Alex Jones wasn't talking to Americans. He was convincing people that the United States government needs to be destroyed- but they weren't
Americans. They were Russians. And the only snowball's chance in hell that Russia has of destroying the US Government is to consume it with a nuclear
fireball- which pretty much negates Jones' attempts to deliniate the difference between the American people and the American gov't, since nuclear
weapons are not widely known for their selective nature.
What's more, you must consider the interview in the same context as we consider our own media. Our media distorts the truth, capitalizing on our lack
of deep knowledge or understanding about far away places and events. For example, the vast majority of us have never been to Georgia and know very
little of Georgia's political leanings or position within the international community. In point of fact, I'll bet dollars against rubles that even
after all this news coverage, you could go to Walmart, ask 10 people at random, and less than half of them would be able to point out Georgia on a map
What makes foreign media any different? How many Russians have been in the United States recently? How many of them have close friends here with whom
they speak regularly? How many of them can tell which of Jones' statements are manifestly true and which are hyperbole?
There is a big difference between Alex Jones' notion of Martial Law and what REALLY goes on when Martial Law is declared. What percentage of the
Russian audience knows that? How many Russians know a lot about our FEMA and the FEMA camps? If you didn't have first hand knowledge about the United
States, you could gain the impression from Alex Jones' interview that the United States, at this very moment, is domestically in a similiar state to
Alex Jones allowed himself to be used for propaganda by a rival power, which make no mistake about it is just as evil as our own government (being
further East does not change the fact that most people with power did not gain that power through benevolence and good manners, afterall).
If Alex Jones wants me to consider him a true patriot, I ask one thing and one thing only of him: keep on talking all you want about whatever you
want, but for the love of god, when you hear an international dial tone, just pause momentarily and realize that if you did, just for once, decide to
shut your freakin piehole, that would not cause you to die instantly.
