I love Jesse Ventura, and was able to meet him last year when his previous book, American Conspiracies came out. He is truly a genuine guy who is much
like all of us, he just wants to know the truth.
I must say though, the Piers Morgan interview frustrated me beyond belief. It wasn't entirely Jesse's fault, though I did find myself often thinking
'why don't you say this?!', or 'he should've said THIS', which is how I feel any time Alex Jones gets interviewed by the mainstream, so I think
it's just the nature of that sort of thing. It was mostly Piers Morgan, who I had already disliked but after interviewing Jesse, I completely
despise. He would ask Jesse a loaded question, and then whine 'but HOW could you honestly believe that Jesse?!' and then go to commercial break.. it
Here's the thing.. I had always wondered, starting maybe 2 years back, why Jesse was being allowed to even appear on such high profile shows as Good
Morning America, Larry King, etc. Heck, he even guest hosted for Larry a couple times.. I thought how could TPTB possibly keep letting him show up on
these huge programs? Well, after watching the Piers interview, I think I get it.. they want to give all these theories a 'crazy face'. I'm not
saying Jesse's crazy, I'm just saying to normal sheeple, like my mom for instance, Piers is by far the 'sane' and more 'well-spoken' one between
the two. From somebody who's asleep's perspective, after watching that interview not only would I probably still believe the official stories of all
those theories, but now when somebody tries to tell me the truth about them, I have already decided what I think. See that's what TPTB want to do..
they know things like the 9/11 movement are too big to keep quiet, so they figure, let everybody hear about it, because they probably will eventually
anyway, but let them hear about it from a guy that also believes every other conspiracy, has crazy looking long gray hair, and shakes when he speaks.
That's also what I noticed about his TV show, Conspiracy Theory. A couple of us have already noted about the way it's produced/directed, which is
expected for a cable show.. but the main thing I noticed is that some episodes had such good, factually based information, but they'd ALWAYS finish
the episode by talking to the craziest person of all, who most of the time, had little credibility or evidence behind their claims. And although I'm
sure some of them were speaking the truth, all this did was discredit all the information exposed throughout the episode.. because here's the thing..
those of us who want the truth about current events and know that we're not going to get it from MSM are going to seek it out. So when I'd watch
Conspiracy Theory, maybe 2% of the information was stuff I didn't already know. What was exciting about the show was knowing that so many people who
are unaware and asleep would be able to see it. But from those people's perspective, when you end a show with something so out-there, that'll be the
last thing they remember, and they'll associate the entire subject with the craziest thing said. Because deep down, most people (like my mom) are
just like Piers, they just can't get past the idea of 'but WHY would they DO that???'. People don't WANT to believe the truth, and they'll always
look for cracks in the evidence to make themselves feel better and go on believing that everything's okay.
So as much as I love Jesse, sadly I think he's being used. Mostly though I just wish he would have slapped Piers in his spoiled-brat looking face
