All you can hope to do is give someone some piece of information that makes them go do the thinking on their own.
. And that is the scam that people are completely oblivious to. Alex Jones makes a joke out of what people believe and have an opinion,
posts it on a website with alarms bells and flashy lights, and all the sudden, the guy is a genius.
Just spread some information farts and yell "infowars" a couple of times, and people will eat it up like it's icecream, while AJ bank accounts says
"thanks!". But he is the real deal, because he exposes the money masters
If this wasn't so real, it would be a comedy sketch somewhere.
And if you need someone like Alex Jones to motivate you to think on your own, then the effort is flawed by principle... Just saying.
How anyone can say Pierce's questions were good and Alex didn't provide information (what were you watching)?
Yelling "I HAVE FBI STATS!!!! I HAVE FBI STATS!!!! 20%! 9/11! WE NEED TO STOP PEOPLE BUYING PHARMA DRUGS
" isn't giving information...
And Piers (not PIERCE's. Seriously, you ask people what they were watching, and you don't even know Piers name?) made a good question, especially
because it was a clever trap. When Piers asks him "what do you think of the murder rate in UK compared to the US?", that's a freaking good
question, either if you are pro or con gun control, because the two countries have OPPOSITE policies! Someone with a brain would understand that, even
if you just listened to half of it because AJ was still yelling...
But no, Alex Jones is the genius here because he yells a lot...
Pierce wanted to play emotion.
(again, it's Piers Morgan... Not Pierce Brosnan)
A person who calmly debates another person - who is yelling and interrupting - isn't playing the emotional card. It was quite the complete
How many people die from gun violence? What gun was used in Aurora, what gun was used in Oregon, what gun was used at Sandy Hook, why do
citizens need these guns -> see we should ban them. He was not going to allow ANY room for discussion outside of this.
You see, CNN isn't Infowars, and a lot of intelligent people watch it around the World, so it's rather understandable that many people who watch
Alex Jones failed to see Piers point with those remarks.
You see, the reason why Piers made those points was with the intention of addressing the nature of the gun laws in the US. The basic question being:
"why the F do you need a .50 cal/AR-15/whatever for self-defense?"...
People would have understood that, if Alex Jones was silent more often...
Alex knew that, hence the screw you and your agenda and Alex going off on his own.
Yes, that makes sense. It's like that guy who knows he will get DUI charges for drinking and driving, but since he knows that, he drinks heavily and
crashes into a school bus to prove he is not
Alex Jones had his shiny opportunity to look good and send his message through CNN. He had that chance, but he is too low-level minded to be able to
dominate such a "big boys" stage.
As for the lack of calmness - try to actually communicate something on those shows which the host doesn't want mentioned and see how far you
get without an aggressive attitude.
Yelling, shouting, pointing fingers and mocking someone's cultural background isn't debating. It's being a moron and a self-centered prick.
Anyone with the smallest piece of decency knows how to keep his cool and engage in a debate. It's called "respect".
