I know about the y2k Jones thing. But seriously, what has he done since then to curse his name? Does the man not wake people up? Does he not give out credible information even if it sometimes has an aggressive tone to it? Explain to me why I shouldn't listen to Alex Jones.



Hmm..lemme see now...Besides being a horse manure scoffing, dishonest, knuckle dragging, slobbering, fat, hyperbolic, hick yelling redneck, I do not find him (Alex Jones) repulsive enough to hate him, but with these interesting personality traits, which must be alluring to certain elements of the US redneck population, I am sure he is a kind and praise worthy patriot.

Well I think his timing is off. There was OK building which they blamed on Timothy Mcvay, Tower thing that happened in 93, then 9/11 in 01, then the underwear buming, then the Batman movie bumming, and on and on.

So his timing is a bit off on some for sure. And I think I know why. TPTB act very slowly, so slow that it's to a large degree imperceptible. That's where Alex's show doesn't coinside with the issues that are going on.

But you can't deni that things are going on, constantly that all look like stagged tare are.



You really must watch the whole video. he does a lot more than claim some terror attack is going to happen. In any case, he stated several times a specific date or time frame and claimed an event would happen that was "as big as 9/11". Sometimes claiming nukes, other times pandemics, and it never happened. He was fear mongering for most of those with ENTIRELY baseless statements. Dont get me wrong, he does have some interesting ideas. Frankly, I miss the old days when he actually went out and investigated stuff like the Bohemian grove, that was actually something nobody had done before.

He's right though on the video you posted. The plastic does have bpa in it which is known to increase estrogen. I don't think this is about "alex jones hates gay people".

While some of his content is good, he likes to market everything when he gets the chance. He is also heavily biased.

The major thing i dislike about Alex Jones is that he likes to say he predicted EVERYTHING. My God, does he ever shut up?


For example:

"Bla bla bla bla bla, bla bla bla bla. Just as i predicted in bla bla bla, 6 months ago."

He appointed himself to his position of supposed power, and people who don't question anything but assume they are awake, thus justifying their odd assertions, have latched on and created a mote around jones which attempts to drown anyone who questions his motives or validity.

He made himself king, and he then appointed sycophants, by proxy, as his minions. The golden rule is Never Question Alex. To do so is to incur the slanderous title of a sheep.

I'd been on the P.P. site for quite some time before coming over here and even got myself mentioned by screen name on one of his broadcasts. It was along the lines of a 'respected foe' reference as he thought my point was entirely off base but I did appreciate the fact he wasn't vicious because I was as outspoken there was I am here. Over there, it was less than subtle disagreement with the general opinion of a single 'boss' which is part of why I eventually moved to different sites for my free time. I disagree with too much about A.J.'s points even as I tend to agree in broad terms.

Having said that.... I think Jones has done outstanding in waking people up in a general way and opening folks up to at least going to educate themselves on more than they ever would have before. In that, he does a lot of tangible good while making a very tidy sum of money for himself in the process.


I think his Rep. is shaky because he can be like the boy crying wolf though. Every event is a major crisis and every problem is the end of everything as we know it. He's bound to be right eventually, as things are going badly to be sure. He's just turning everyone off, IMO, before events get that far.

He's a great 'gateway' drug into the world of doom porn tho!

I didn't spam your thread.

You asked for a response to the question "Why does everyone hate Alex Jones?"

Although I do not "hate" the man, I am aware that he does mix a healthy dose of fear and outright untruth along with the things he "reports" as truth.

For the amount of hate and distrust displayed by people on this website towards main stream media, I find it ironic how many people take his word as gospel considering the carrier he uses to broadcast his sermons, are... *cough... mainstream.

Oh, I know, however that is not the determining factor in someones sexuality. Many are born with it, and those who are not usually are influenced by TV IMO.

Anyways, back to the video. Please watch to the end. If you did, then I was more referring to how he starts spouting off stereotypical statements toward the end. The stuff about wearing skirts and bundling roses, that is bigotry, pure and simple. That is why I said it was fine to have that idea that the juice and chips are making people gay, but it is not OK to go on and start making bigoted remarks about homosexuals. See what I am saying?

ETA: Also, I didn't make the video title. So I wasn't saying he hated them, was just stereotypical.

So true, nicely put, thanks for that.

I will admit I was tuning into AJ before ATS, but mainly just youtube videos of him. The main one that got me into conspiracies was his Bohemian Grove video, which was probably some of his best "work". Back when he actually took risks to get us info. That and he is the only one to have recorded the cremation of care ceremony, so kudos to him for that.

I wanted to like Alex Jones because I'm interested in the subjects he addresses.
But I just cannot watch his videos.
They're too long. He yells at me. He tries to sell me worthless garbage. I could go on, but it all comes down to one thing:
PRESENTATION.
I watch Ben Swann and Matthew Cooke and enjoy their videos but Alex Jones is just unwatchable and seems stupid.

He lost me about the time he "snuck" into the Bohemian Grove. Walking through a parking lot and then staying in public for HOURS on end with a camera man is NOT "infiltrating" anything.

Since then? Quality of content. Alex has a cottage industry based upon taking 1% fact and adding 99% ZOMG WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!! to it.

Although watching him with his bullhorn at the driveway of Bilderberg meetings is funny at least.


I haven't watched that bohemian grove video in a while, but didn't he just have a hidden camera on? I don't remember there ever being a camera man.

Bohemian Grove does have very strict security. There are plenty of videos out there with people trying to sneak in and failing.

That being said I don't really like Alex Jones in general, but who else has been able to obtain footage of the Cremation of Care? I think that was pretty important IMHO.

Regardless of whether or not you buy into all the conspiracy surrounding the Bohemian Grove, you can't tell me it doesn't worry you a little bit that a group of some of the most influential men in the world go off into the forest and put on ceremonies like that in front of a 40 ft owl shrine.

Alex Jones is hilarious, I used to listen to him at work sometimes to the make the time go faster. Most of the time I think he's crazy but it's in a hilarious energetic way. I must say though, that # can not be healthy to listen to everyday. He does his research but his stuff is all kinda based on fear for the most part, sometimes with an ounce of positive news. I bet he'll read this thread lol

lol you know the funny thing about alex jones is that he has even come out and said himself that he is an actor. i believe in one or two of his videos his style of delivering information is pure theatrics. and that is why people watch him.

for some they dont seem to understand this and think that this is really how he acts. but if you think about it would he have as many views as he does now if he delivered information in a boring typical way?

the information provided is helpful and shines a light on a lot of the destructive practices of our government.

he does like to market his products and i think that there is obviously a style of viewer who is interested in that sort of thing (i.e. the doomsday preper) i myself just skip past the product promotions in the videos.

personally i think he is funny. anyone that takes his persona too seriously should lighten up!

I just don't understand it, and this is not the only forum that I'm talking about. Everywhere on the internet if you link a source to Alex Jones you have people saying that it's garbage. Why? The man seems to link to credible sources and speak the truth (aside from a few rare instances), so why do people hate Alex Jones?

Yes he pushes products. Yes he has million dollar yearly moneybombs. But who else here can say that if they put that much work and time into something that they wouldn't want some compensation in return (to not only run their business but live on as well)?

I know about the y2k Jones thing. But seriously, what has he done since then to curse his name? Does the man not wake people up? Does he not give out credible information even if it sometimes has an aggressive tone to it? Explain to me why I shouldn't listen to Alex Jones.


He never reports on anything that hasn't already been reported on.

He just reiterates the same crap to sell stuff.

Also, www.youtube.com...


Some people also have a problem with the fact that he never talks about the Zionist connection to any conspiracy. They think he's a shill. I do'nt know about this as I don't watch him often enough to tell.

Because he fills his program with content without care to turn a profit. Whistleblowers go on his show believing he is a genuine platform with reach but he burned himself by taking in anything and everything unverified or not.

Hit notoriety is based of parroting the work of others particularly in the wake of 911, but even then he messed up by presenting all kinds of theories without looking into who could back up his story and who was in a position to have access to the information he says he has.
