I think it's time people started waking up and getting angry about what's going on. I think Alex has every right to throw a fit and be angry. Do you people even pay attention to the atrocities commit by the eltw everyday? How can you not be enraged. I for one am sick of the way people treat each other on this planet and I think it's bout time some of us had the balls to standup to this nonsense.


Get off your high horses and get real.

Alex Jones is a tit who totally showed himself up. However, bad as his behaviour was, this is much worse.

At the end of the day, like him or loathe him, he is entitled to his opinion and to express that opinion, particularly when he has been invited onto a show to debate something.

I have to say, the loons on all sides of this particular argument are really coming to the fore...........


The reason AJ was like that on tv is to wake up the nation to what is going on. There are so many people who are simply clueless what is going on and are allowing the Elite to control their lives without consent.

I am with AJ on this one. I hope he is safe. If something does happen to him, at least you can be sure your right to free speech is terminated.

Normally they don't shoot outspoken truthers because they make martyr's out of them and that is the last thing the nwo wants. It is much easier to use mk-ultra slaves to go to schools and shoot up innocents and then the media spinning and sensationalising it to kingdom come. When we get enough of these luciferian shootings the public will get terrified and ask for UK gun bans. This is what really fears me, but it will not happen overnight, it will probably take years.

As for Alex Jones, yes he is a hero in the fullest of sense, but he should tone it down a bit for his own safety!

"insidious and heinous" - Why? Because AJ's own organisation (predictably) saw an opportunity and sold it to their audiences as such? No one actually shot AJ or any of his family did they? This is a victimless "crime" made by a person exercising their right to freedom of speech.

"illegal" - Please can you point me to the law stating this as illegal. In fact, I recall a law supporting it. It's called the 1st Amendment. If the individual you're accusing had said it as a call to action (as opposed to satire and irony) to the viewers of the show, then I think there would be good reason get upset about it because then it could be directly attributed as malicious and with ill-intent.

"hypocritical" - Why is it hypocritical?



edit on 9-1-2013 by CosmicBob because: Fixed some wording


So if someone says something about the US president along the same lines, do they get looked into by the Secret Service? I think so.

Unfortunately saying "it was a joke" afterwards is too late as the offender already said it. At minimum Piers and the other commentators should be looked at officially, sure nothing will come out of it since the elites got the police under wraps. Its the principle of it though.


AJ, despite what he may think of himself, is not the US president. That job title comes with far greater responsibility than I suspect AJ could ever hope to even have a wet dream about. Because it is a sadly large occupational hazard that the president will often have those in such extreme disagreement with a president's politics that they are willing to take violent action to express said disagreement, a serious organisation assembled to investigate all statements mentioned (even in jest) regarding the security of said president is unfortunately necessary. AJ is not in this position. I'm sure he gets death threats all the time. But I believe that the worst that can happen to him is those most reasonably opposed to him laugh him off as a loon and move on with more constructive things to do with their time.

I'm saying it was intended as a joke because that is what it was. Anyone familiar with satire and ironical humour can see that, an in my view, that should be everyone here. He was using the ridiculous (I'm assuming also a "joke") challenge by AJ to PM to take him on in a ring to make a point of irony about that which AJ so vehemently defends. Why is this so hard to see?

What would you be saying to me right now, if AJ was saying that about PM and I got all up in arms about it being heinous and illegal and all that? Would you agree with me, or would you be saying what I'm saying right now? In my opinion, the latter of the two approaches is the correct approach to both the real scenario (CNN) and my hypothetical scenario.

It would be scarier if AJ had actually said a similar thing about anyone, however, because he is actually a gun supporter and it would be harder to put it past him that he would actually shoot someone for disagreeing with him than the individual who was talking on PM. Even so, I doubt he could resort to that.
edit on 9-1-2013 by CosmicBob because: Fixed some grammatical errors


Of course he is not the President and my point was that a threat is a threat regardless of who its against. I posted the link that shows in CA that a threat to kill is a criminal act, whether its a "joke" or not. I do not see from the video clip (CNN) that the guy was joking, it was said with a firm standing from Buzz or w/e his name is.

As another poster said, if AJ had said the same thing to Piers, guaranteed he would not got out of NYC. Again, you keep cherry picking points. I would be all on AJ if he said the same thing, also to go along with this, why was there mention of "hope AJ doesn't get a call at 3am about one of his kids being shot", why say that? HUH? I am not stupid neither is AJ, that is a non-direct threat. IT IS don't try and play that off.

For example; you and me get in argument, after said argument I say "hope your wife isn't raped on your way home", would you take that as a threat? I would and it needs to be looked into by authorities, that is all I am saying.

I follow Alex Jones on Twitter, and the problem with the guy is he's like a dog with a bone. He won't let go until he's totally run out of steam, and unfortunately, the guy has a lot of steam!

I think he should have left the debate as it was, and bowed out in a dignified manner, and let Morgan take the heat for his comment, and act as though "Ha, look at this douchebag, joking about killing me... " But instead he's bombarding Morgan with tweet after tweet and he's making these comments about being in fear of his life.
Part of me is like "WTF calm down dude," and the other half is like "Well this is what you get when you don't know when to keep quiet..."

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly #tier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they're coming for your Social Security money. They want your #in' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this #in' place. It's a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy.
-- George Carlin

We can't deny that people like Mr. George Carlin tried to warn us. The system doesn't work. The system only benefits the few on the detriment of the many. The system is unfair. I don't care what names are given to it: communism, socialism, capitalism.

Basically they are all Darwinism. Survival of the fittest with the big exception that animals don't do this to each other.

You have to make it known, they aren't gonna be hyping Piers' threat all over CNN as they did with AJ saying he's crazy.

A threat was made to him and his family, he needs to expose that threat for what it is. Would you not be in 'fear' if they mentioned your children being shot as well as taking a semi-auto to 'pop' him?

I think they are up our butts, as you put it, because they seek to dominate the American people and want to eliminate those that might stand in their way.

We can keep circling around this topic forever because you're missing my point.

If one postures themselves as a 'we're not going to take it' bully then what do you expect the government to do? Have some sort of epiphany and say 'gee, they have a point. I think we should back off"
Of course not.
It's only going to make them be more guarded and prepared.

I swear to gawd I hope Alex Jones is a paid shill because anyone with half a brain cell would see the perilous situation their actions are creating for everyone else!!!!!

So in other words, when AJ gets his lemmings to follow him to Bohemia Grove every year, the attendees should:
1) welcome him inside?
2) offer him a lawn chair while bull-horning and inciting others?
3) create stiffer security.

If you answered '3' then....don't you see the perpetual cycle he's keeping us in? He is an idiot (or shill)


Alex is not the reason they are going after guns, doing warrantless wiretapping etc.

What do you expect us to do give up our second amendment?

What next?

Look its real simple tyranny is knocking on the door step now is not the time to back down.

Exactly, now is not the time to dismiss this till later. Live in the moment, not the past nor the future, right now "they" are talking about taking guns, we know from history what happens when a populace's arms are confiscated... Mao, Stalin, Hitler.... etc, etc... Democide.... 262,000,000 people killed by GOVT worldwide.

Btw, I am disgusted how these people on CNN are allowed to talk like terrorists and how agreeable Piers was on that comment. I know Piers hates AJ with a passion and I think that this segment allowed Piers to publicly take a jab at AJ.

But wouldn't you think that there should have been an apology made about that comment afterwards? To "pop" AJ one in the ring? If the person who made that comment realized how many millions of people are watching the show, in that instance alone he sent a message to the world that it is okay to shoot someone as long as it has been an arranged showdown. Kind of like UFC...but with costumes and guns.

Reminds me of this Glenn Beck episode on FOX and how the NWO threatened him off air. But for CNN to do this on air, that tells me there is another Elite group organizing this threat.

I am clearly in the minority here but that's ok.

But don't you guys think that you may be taking this alleged "threat" idea a bit too far out of proportion? You guys seem to put so much stock in what AJ claims in his videos it's almost becoming like a religion.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for supporting a cause you believe in, but to get so riled up over a comment made by a sports columnist unaffiliated with CNN on an interview is starting to stretch this beyond what it is. If you listen to what was actually said by Buzz Bissinger (quoted below) you will see it is not actually a threat at all. It's a mock suggestion directed at Piers Morgan intended as a joke, which is I'm sure how Piers Morgan took it given that I haven't seen any headlines reading that PM has actually challenged AJ to a boxing match with guns. The idea is rather ridiculous and funny if you think about it.

Read the quote again:



“I don’t care what the justification is that you’re allowed in this country to own a semi-automatic weapon – much less a handgun. But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you’d need it is,Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him.”


I was a supporter of AJ in the past and credulously accepted most of his assertions, even the crazier ones. I had his rants in my podcast subscriptions and waited in anticipation for his next show. After hearing him go totally off like a lunatic (swearing, not answering the caller's questions, etc.) on a caller who was calmly and reasonably criticising his views I started to doubt this man's integrity. Watching how unreasonably over the top he would get in a few other videos furthered this disenchantment. A bit more research into things and a few discussions with well read friends of mine, I came to the conclusion that AJ is nothing more than an attention seeker who uses unsupported claims (the more sensational, the better) to get eyes and ears listening to him and sell his products. He is very effective in his marketing although his product has no substance.

I encourage all of you to try and take a step back from your biases for AJ and just see him as a fellow homo sapiens. Start with that as a base and then really look into what he is saying, point by point, evidence by evidence. I'm pretty confident that most of you will come to the same conclusions as I have.

If I may ask, do you not think your view on this matter is that of disgust because those folks at infowars.com sold the story to you in such a way so as to cause to see this as an "attack" on AJ? I'd be willing to wager that had IW not made a video about this, people would have overlooked this completely and just continued with their lives.


I don't read infowars. I saw the debate the other night, and watched Piers show lastnight and was disgusted immediately by their actions. I know AJ has an agenda, and in the other thread on AJ vs Piers I already stated my opinion on Jones as being an overly emotional blowhard.

Try to do a little research before you make unfounded opinions of your own.

edit: My problem with the threat made is that it was said on a show which people watch to get an understanding of the issues, and statements with such emotional bias have no place in that context.

Alexs' views are shared by a lot of people however, most people are much more level headed in the manner in which they express their views, sadly Alex Jones just doesn't have this ability. I myself was a fan of his but after watching his TV interview with Peirs Morgan - I have left the Jones Camp. However, I can't help but think of some one else who was ridiculed to near extinction because of his views and is now a renowned speaker with millions of followers - myself included so I guess that makes me a bit of a hypocrite??

Alex Jones could learn MUCH by studying David Ickes balanced presentations - he needs to raise the bar and get more professional about it - HE HAS LET SO MANY FOLLOWERS DOWN.

Haha, I believe I have been called a lemming before. Perhaps that's the term you're looking for?

I don't think you guys are nutcases. To me, nutcases are those who can't be reasoned with. If I thought that of you guys, I would have left the discussion a long time ago.

I am sure if the the shoe was in another foot you would use it to condemn guns even further. You are a bad troll.


Maybe............. but only because Im now questioning AJs mental state.

I just rewatched the vid and it is absolutely appalling!!!!!!

The guy has most likely lost his marbles, I mean the end bit where he puts on the accent!!!! WTF was that about


I dont dislike AJ so Im not sure why you think im trolling.

Did you think he did a good job or represented his side well?
Think objectively and not as an AJ fan for a minute.

After a 2nd viewing I think its possible he was nervous as hell to be there which may explain his seeming nuttiness

Can you link a source showing he knew they were fake?

Ive read nothing about that and would be very interested

I agree the joke was in bad taste and he should have realised that this would ensue, but it was a joke never the less and no one, not even the people using sensational headlines, actually thinks it was serious and that AJs life was in danger
edit on 9/1/2013 by IkNOwSTuff because: (no reason given)


Well, whether you want to believe it or not what people in the media say or agree with DOES matter. We used to hold journalism to a certain degree of professionalism where even the lowest of the low tabloid journalists were held to a certain degree of accountability. If some nutjob goes out and acts on what Piers and Co. were joking about do you honestly think he should have no accountability for the things he said?
