I have considered this for a long time, BUT after reading "Them: Adventures with Extremists" (which I highly suggest) I think Alex Jones is probably
really just kinda dumb, and a sensationalist. Conspiracy theory is to him what ghost hunting is to some. In that particular book the Journalist that
wrote it, Jon Ronson, is meeting with him and another guy to sneak into Bohemian Grove (the instance that AJ blew up with his crappy hidden video).
Alex doesn't trust the journalist apparently (remember this is all Jon Ronson's version of course, but he seems to be pretty serious, not a hack (his
book Men Who Stare at Goats was made into a film, etc) so he chooses to enter separately from Johnson and the other guy so AJ and his partner go in
first. As they are walking in they dramatically jump into the bushes for no reason. Later on after Jonson and the other guy (a guy who taught them how
to get in) have infiltrated they see Alex and his partner and they are sticking out like a sore thumb and very shocked by the experience. Later
Johnson recalls what it was like inside (the owl motif, creation of care, and likens it to a them and more of a fraternity experience than nefarious,
but AJ and his partner are going on about how evil it is, etc.
So unless Ron Johnson was doing exactly what you are saying and was trying to make Alex Jones look crazy it seems Jones is really into it.
I have thought many times though that Jones might serve the purpose of making conspiracies and conspiracy theorists look as ridiculous as possible and
it very well could be true (a conspiracy within itself lol). It would make sense. Then again he may just enjoy it, or he may just have to go on so
much because he would run out of things to talk about and he is really about the money. Someone that is truly committed to waking people up would
likely show some reservation where AJ does not. I have heard him talk about clockwork elves and I was just like.. man this is ridiculous. I have heard
theories tossed around that he popped up in Austin around the same time as some government group, but I forget which because I took that with a grain
Edit: AH I see now that the guy below me posted exactly what I was mentioning there.. it was Stratfor..
Most likely he is filling a niche and doing so for money and because he's like a fat house wife that goes house to house running identifying spirits
and cleansing houses (aka he thinks it's fun). It's unfortunate of course because there is undoubtedly some conspiracy theories that are more likely
than the official story.. just not all of them and maybe most of them.
