I never included myself in anything. And I'm American. You know what assuming does...

So because we disagree with how Alex Jones handled himself, we are the cry babies who represent piers Morgan? And we need to grow up. ...


Sorry, when you said "we" I thought you meant "we, here in the UK." Sorry for assuming.

Still, I stand by everything else I said.

you all seem to forget that alex was screaming about waco texas, and 911 been an inside job long before it was popular.

now what interest does that serve to the guilty party?

none, more damaging than anything.

I think that because of his wide reach he may have had a hand in making the 911-was-an-inside-job "popular".
I've listened to him for years, and sometimes he's embarrasing to watch, other times he's hilarious, and lately rather egotistical. But, I think that on a level line he's pretty accurate overall. Has nayone seen the move "The Fatherland" with Nick Nolte? Everytime I get to thinking Alex is genuine, that movie haunts me.
Some times he has rather stellar interviews, and today's with the "Obama Phone Lady" was one of those, other times it's the usual "cast of characters" getting together and giving a performance. I'll probably always listen to his shows, but sometimes I get tired of the ranting. I can't keep up with that level of energy so I go youtube recent shows of Coast to Coast to get similar interviews but at much calmer pace.
Just my two cents.

Then what has started this recent surge in MSM exposure ?


The slaughter of those babies and the continued unquenchable outcry for gun control in the wake of it . It's brought all them roaches out from among the cracks of the floorboards.

I listen to his show every night while at work because I'm here alone for 8 hours and I believe in the message but not the man himself if that makes sense. He constantly contradicts himself and shuts down any one that calls in and disagrees with him. He talks about how the main steam media will spit out stories hoping no one looks into the facts, but he does the exact same thing. If you look into half the "facts" he throws out you will see how he pads the stats to make things look a lot worse than they are. Why? Doom sellls and he's all about the money and feeling that he's number one.

Already happening. I was having an argument about guns on facebook.. completely calm and logical, making concise points, and when I got the guy in a corner it came out: "you sound like Alex Jones."

I was like.. no I am not a fan.. BUT NOW I SOUND LIKE ALEX JONES!

The trend is becoming painfully clear. Most gun mongers like Alex Jones, are conservative. Those sane conservatives tend to be the majority of those who think sandy hook was a hoax to come after our guns.

Sad.

So is that what this whole thread was about? Discrediting conservatives?

I thought it was about about Alex Jones being a "strawman".

Or is it just a veiled attempt at lumping gun owners, Alex Jones, conservatives and anybody that doesnt agree with you into one big pile of insanity?

...and dont give me that "new guy" crap, I have just as much of a right to post on this website as you do.

Then don't act new. There's plenty of posts here. One post does not define a thread

You seem to be very acidic and mean to those of us who don't particularly agree with you. No offense intended.

Just saying... lighten up a bit, maybe?

Don't act new? What does that even mean?

Don't disagree with people that have more posts than I do?

Ah, yeah sure, I'm moving on now...

Um no. It means take the time to read the entire thread rather than just cherry picking one post to define a thread. Sure, vets do it as well. But you honestly can't have any clue what my "agenda" is when I've been here over 6 years abs you've been here a few days that's all I meant.

You see it as mean. I see it as reacting to people not having an honest debate.

Hmmmm, but Icke has got it all figured out, huh?



When did this turn into an Icke thread?
The weakest defense is a strong offense and you're playing it very well. Alex should be proud.

You, Alex Jones and the rest of you flag waving patriots can load, cock and lock all the guns you want then, lie and wait for decades!

I and the others will live our lives fearlessly.
Must suck being you!

Exactly. Everyone please go hide in those bunkers. I'd prefer a shorter line at the crappy chick flick I'm taking the wife to tonight.

Well, I didn't mean "mean" so much as I meant "cold."

Cold is a natural reaction to fear mongering though. There was a point when I bought into it. Then as time passed and predictions were wrong and generalized I went to taking it with a grain of salt. Now that he's where he's at in 2012 I'm cold to aj and those who push his agenda.

Alex Jones is standing up for American's rights and I respect him even more for telling Piers Morgan to go shove it.

I especially loved it when AJ threw in the British accent and nearly made Mr. Morgan blow a gasket.

Good times!

So what you're saying is, he should not have sponsors? And if he CAN have sponsors, he shouldn't promote said sponsors? They came to him, because of his message. It's not like he's pushing pills from Bayer or Pfizer, Sandoz, etc.

I think he's legitimate. But just being legit doesn't cut it. To be on the air, you HAVE to have some gimmick or personality, etc. or you won't keep listeners. This is why Peter Schiff will never have at big a following as AJ. He's a very smart fellow, who will tell you how it is (economically speaking). But he's boring. AJ makes you WANT to watch and listen, even if you disagree with him (much like Howard Stern, for example).
Anyway, I digress. He has a certain listenership. There are sponsors who can make money by producing what these listeners want (you know... the free market thing).
Real or fake, you can't base it all on the fact that the man has a good relationship with his sponsors.

*I have 17 years in broadcasting. I'm not taking sides on Jones' legitimacy. I'm just saying that your sponsorship argument is bunk
