This entire thread makes me wonder.
Most of it is attacking Jones, but what's with attacking Conspiracy theorist lately. It's almost an everyday thing, on the TV, radio, newspapers, so
much so that Wikipedia even classifies it as a mental illness (bet they have a pill for it). It comes to the point, that as soon as an incident
occurs, people say "oh boy watch out, here come the tin foil hat wearing nut jobs."
Seems to be the thing to do on ATS lately, which is ironic, considering this is a Conspiracy site. Officially it's named an alternative news, but it
was and will always be a Conspiracy site.... Why do most of "non-conspiracy" people spend hours and hours here? It's always the same avatars, same
members every time, always arguing for the Media's message du jour vs the Conspiracy theorist. Why?
No wonder the site is dying (responses and flags are dropping daily, threats of bans if you mention certain conspiracies or topics, and just plain old
attacking of certain members that is usually passed over by "mods").
It's sad to see people calling people who question things names like : kooks, nut jobs, tin foil hats, mental cases, so forth... Why is this
allowed... It's slanderous and really off putting. Truth be known, when someone comes into a discussion with sources and the only retort the other
side is calling them nut bag, then WHO looks bad in the debate?
Despite someone saying "wait for a conspiracy theorist to come and say this is planned" is it really that shocking that they would tie the Bomber
with the Conspiracy crowd (people like Jones' listeners). They are doing the same thing with Welfare and the dead suspect. Do you think the media has
nothing to gain?
They do this, to segment the debate. To spin the debate, so people will push their hate on, in this case, Conspiracy theorists, Alex Jone's
listeners, Welfare recipients. People are attaching their hatred of the Bombers to other persons, who are not connected, and why? Because of Media
hearsay. People will fight with each other, and just forget who is the real enemy and who is just their illusion-foe.
This is only more of the same, in terms of media agenda. They like segmenting the population against each other, and it works. It even works here, on
a "Conspiracy" website.
I'd think there would be more saying this, but sadly like I said, they seem to have left ATS.
Point is, where is the evidence. The media saying something is not evidence. Listing a vague "inside source" has no real negatives to it. It's a
nameless entity, which a majority of our population hears as Gospel. If it's wrong, they switch it, and there's no questioning (ie see last week and
the constant changes to the Boston situation). There is no recourse for them to for reporting false facts. No what's so ever.
Media hearsay, should never be treated as evidence. Considering "our media" is not really "our media" but a corporatist state media, what's that
say about their goals and or statements? They only care about one thing people and it's not truth, or balanced reporting. It's control.
These same corporations that own the media, purchase Lobbyist which control our government. Why would anyone believe anything they say? They are
protecting their own assets, so why would anyone put faith into a PR mouth piece?
Question everything. Questioning things does not make one a a tinfoil hater or a nut job....It's showing that you have a brain, and you are not
afraid to use it. Even when it's openly attacked by others.
They want Conspiracy theory silenced, it's a thorn in their side. So yeah, hate on Jones for being a loud mouth Conspiracy theorist, or hate on a
member for posting questions about official stories, but don't forget where that may lead us. To just one narrative and more control, loss of self.

Did the bomber listen to Alex Jones? Who knows... Don't let an "inside source" dictate your reality.
