Skip to comments.Does anyone take Alex Jones seriously here?

So, I have a conservative pal of mine who - over the past few years - has really become a huge fan of Alex Jones. I don't know a ton about this guy other than that he seems to really propagate certain "conspiracy theories" and such.
I tuned into his streaming show today and it just seems like he's really full of a LOT of hate - lots of name-calling, invoking the Lord, Hell and Satan in regards to certain topics. Dunno.. .he seem's a bit "off" to me..
I’m from Austin and he was a regular years ago on cable access. We used to turn his show on late at night and laugh at him. He’s a bit over the top to say the least. He’s a huge conspiracy nut. I find him entertaining but that’s it.
He’s kind of retarded but entertaining.
All you need to know about Alex Jones!
I did the exact same thing late at night watching his cable access show. Now, I listen to him once in a while and have came to the conclusion that Jones is paranoid schizophrenic due to his inability to understand satire and sarcasm.
AJ is full-blown rubber room material.
No, not really..., unless you’re into the Bilderburgers (I’m into Build-a-burgers, instead...) and/or the Trilateral Commision and the 9/11 Truthers, and so on.... LOL...
HOLY CRAP! What a freakin’ NUT-JOB he is! LOL... wow...
Heck no, he is a truther (father of all truthers) nut.. The only difference between him and David Icke is his boogeymen aren’t reptilian aliens.
FYI, Alex Jones’ articles and websites (Prison Planet, InfoWars, etc) are not welcome here.
were you in Texas too- or did that loon have a bigger audience than I gave him credit for?
I actually watched some “documentary” he did- conspiracy regarding some group, skull and bones, Kennedy, Coconut grove, you know, all his regulars- just to show my Mr. what I used to watch and giggle over back home.
I actually like Alex Jones. FR will not allow posts from him, but a lot of his stuff is interesting and clearly not mainstream.
Kook, maybe, but he shows a lot of NWO things I had never heard of.
They love to point to the Reichstag Fire but in fact they are a variation Reichstag Fire tactic in they have taken a simple truth (four planes and Al Queda did it) and lied/twisty it in to a great fake grand Neocon (read Jews) conspiracy
Alex Jones and 911 truther are the definition of useful idiot in the service of a greater evil
No, back in the early 90’s I would be up late at night and see Alex on the local cable access channel.
Once in a while, I listen to him as comedy.
Any reasons for it? Perhaps FR should welcome those posts to give its users the chance to trounce their falsehoods? (just an idea)...
His recent documentary, “The Obama Deception” is worth a watch on YouTube. A lot of what he says and predicts makes you wonder about this administration. His basic premise is that all the Presidents of the last century and this one are controlled by the Bilderburgers and moving to One World Government. They are collapsing the dollar and the US Government to make it come to pass.
FYI, I used to live in Austin and catch him on radio Sunday afternoons. He is definitely out there, but he may actually get a few things right every now and then.
Just my two cents....
When I worked at the State Capitol years ago, there was a gun show bill that came up in the CrimJur committee, and the rep I was working for was a member. I sat through the hearings and one of the speakers for was Nina Butts who was head of Texans Against Gun Violence, a democrat anti-gun front group. After she spoke, there were about 3 inner city kids that got up to speak in favor to the committee about how guns were ruining their neighborhoods and how we needed more gun control.
Alex Jones got up to speak against the gun bill, and said that he had actually videotaped Nina Butts paying off the the inner city kids in cash outside the hearing room just half an hour before the meeting started, and that he had it on tape and would be putting it on his website. The whole room was flabbergasted and Butts was humiliated in front of everyone. It was a cool moment. You can find it on youtube if you search for "gun payoff".
Already been tried and rejected. It's a waste of bandwith. He and his supporters make Ron Paul kooks look rational.
CoastToCoastAM's George Norry supports Alex Jones fully -- or at least he did when George Bush was AJ's primary target.
Mr. Norry questioned him about Ms Malkin. At first Jones kinda of, sort of admitted that he'd gone over the line than began claiming that all those demonstrators were Malkin's goons and the whole thing was her fault. I swear I remember him claiming that he felt threatened by her.
Now that Jones is targeting Obama and not Bush it seems that he no longer is as welcomed -- the frequency of his appearances on CoastToCoastAM has dropped off somewhat.
Your REAL title shpuld read: No Matter the messenger, Does Anyone Really Trust Our Government or It’s Quasi Entities?
Inquiring minds and all that...
Are they influential on the world stage and in the U.S.? Yes.
Are they a "shadow government" secretly pulling all the strings while the POTUS and other elected officials are merely figureheads as Jones insists? No.
He's a crank who uses the legitimate fear of the wealthy and powerful to ply a trade among the weak-minded. Like all successful liars, he bases his lies on a little bit of truth from which he spins paranoia into a small industry.
Should we be wary of organizations of the wealthy and powerful like those listed above? Absolutely. But, we need to be wary of lying crackpots like Jones who attempt to turn a profit on those legitimate concerns as well as foment the kind of mass hysteria you may witness in the You Tube video posted on this thread.
He's a vicious sideshow barker with an appetite for destruction. If you push him hard enough, he'll probably tell you that George Washington was a puppet controlled by evil foreign bankers who sought the destruction of America... before it's birth.
I don’t know as much about Mr. Jones as I would like to, but the fact that he tends to piss off the Establishment has my respect. I know a lot of “conservatives” seem to think he’s nutty for one reason or another, but I myself am a little more willing to listen to what he has to say than most people, I guess. Whether I believe what he says is a different story, however.
Saying that 9/11 Truther Jones is entertaining
is like saying Hitler was enteraining.
First, it isn’t an ‘alliance’ with the 9/11 Truthers, he is the self proclaimed father of the 9/11 Truth movement and is responsible for much of the crap you read and there is very little difference between his statements and Rosie O’Donnel’s statements on the subject.
Next is his associations and promotion of racists and antisemites like David Duke and the late Ted Pike, of whom he hosts some of articles and had on his show.
Next is his continual pushing of conspiracy theories such as FEMA concentration camps, etc, that are more at home in places such as Renese or reruns of the X-Files.
With that said, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The first two reasons alone make him and others like him not welcome here. Our side is about Conservative values, not antisemetic fear mongering.
Thanks for your reply.
That’s not that farting preacher guy on YouTube, is it ?
9/11 truther? DUN! Nutcase.

Inside "talkers" deliver the lecture and set up the tip for more dings, including the "blow-off".
Us folks in the sideshow community are upset at your misguided usage of language. Words mean something sir!
We are professional and the remaining few of us left in America deliver quality entertainment in an educational and mysterious nature.

Did you watch his feature documentary ‘The Obama Deception’?
Alex Jones is an idiotic, certifiable nutcase. And he’s not above threatening women... just ask Michelle Malkin (all you need to do is google both their names).
I've noticed that, too. I really don't like Goorge Snorey.
Correction: He's a vicious gameshow host.
You are forgiven Dr. Thorne. Now step inside and see Zack and Mack, America’s Famous Two-Head Wonder, Alive and on the Inside!
This may not sound Christian but if I would have been there, I would have been duty bound to knock the crap out of Jones. Where were the men while this girl was being hounded and threatened? Why wasn’t Jones charged?
I recently acquired a WiFi radio, which gives me instant access to internet radio. I prefer Rush, but whenever he goes off on some boring topic like golf or cigars or football, I tune into Alex Jones. He has been covering the swine flu vaccine issue, health care “reform” and Climategate exhaustively. His one hour interview with Lord Monckton was superb. Monckton was in fine form, and Jones conducted the interview in a manner that Hannity and Levin could only hope to. In other words, he let him talk, without interruptions, without going off on some egocentric tangent.
I take the good and dismiss the paranoid ranting. No one is right all the time. But Jones is right much of the time.
I hope those two get together more often.
I have an old Radio Shack DX-375 that makes it easy to switch presets and bands.
Btw- late at night 11pm on 3,215 kHz is an excellent Constitutional legal eagle named Alex Albert or something like that. He's on 12,160 kHz shortwave noon to 4 pm est..
