Alex Jones is such an annoying, contradictory fake… no not that presenter from The One Show, no not that mentally challenged character from the movie Prisoners, I’m talking about the radio talk show host and apparent conspiracy theorist. During the late nineties and early noughties it was very easy to fall into the trap of liking Jones, especially during the aftermath of 9/11. During that time even I became slightly entranced by his spiel, amongst the same-same viewpoints being heard from the mainstream left and right, he seemed to be one of the few people questioning the official narrative of the event. Jones back then seemed to be a genuine alternative to the mainstream media.
Over the years that followed however, the more I heard his podcasts and the more I saw him in interviews, I began to realise the contradictions and inconsistencies within his sermons. Similar to someone like Russell Brand, Alex Jones appears as if he represents an alternative opinion, but if you look past his distracting façade, you begin to question if he really is who he purports to be. When you listen to him speak, you have to ask yourself, if Jones is a genuine pro-gun, pro-liberty, conspiracy theorist why would he give each of these groups a bad name every time he appears on a show apparently representing them? If you follow his antics outside of his controlled radio show, you can catch him embarrassing himself on various international shows, from shouting at Piers Morgan on CNN to yelling on the Sunday Politics show on the BBC, surely these angry-insane-man appearances do a disservice to his alleged causes? Either Alex Jones is the biggest P.R. disaster the American conspiracy community have ever had or he is a complete and utter charlatan.
Alex Jones is someone who routinely speaks with people such as David Icke on his radio show and therefore is open to the most out-there conspiracies. This is also a man who for the last decade or so has told us that both sides of the government are puppets, that Democrats are faux liberals and Republicans are false conservatives, for most of the noughties he denounced George Bush, mocked the NeoCons, and told us Obama was deceptive. By all accounts both sides of the government were counterfeit according to Jones, whoever was in charge wasn’t democratically elected and they never have been, the American President (and all world leaders for that matter) were decided by the Illuminati-slash-Bilderberg. But for a so-called libertarian who has made it his life’s work to “rally” or “protest” outside these elitist’s conventions, Jones now wants to back a GOP candidate, is this not the biggest U-turn since United Airlines Flight 175?
Interviewing Donald Trump in 2015, Jones who is an alleged “aggressive-constitutionalist” never once countered Trump’s idiotic and downright unconstitutional plans for the United States, he never once mentioned his belief that 9/11 was an inside job, something that surely would be contrary to Mr. Trump and his mainstream xenophobic political stance? You can go back before last year and note that Alex Jones has shown a desire for numerous Republicans to become the President including the idiotic Sarah Palin. So for more than a decade now he’s been hollering about how he’s “so sick of the New World Order” but flash forward a few years and he’s palling up with prospective candidates of this nefarious clique! Not only that but when this so-called conspiracy theorist “interviewed” Trump he never once mentioned a single conspiracy, he wouldn’t want to look like a fool next to an orange-skinned cunt with a brittle comb-over now would he?
Outside of the world of politics, you can go to YouTube and hear Alex’s rants against celebrities such as Michael Jackson, once calling him a “peadophile freak” and a “demon” who is “in hell now”. I guess the mainstream media are telling us all non-stop lies but they told us the God’s honest truth with regards to Jackson. You can’t pick and choose aspects within a conspiracy, either none of it’s true or all of the government are puppets and frauds, all of the world’s leaders are corrupt, and all of the mainstream media are liars. This is probably why Alex Jones’ name is increasingly mentioned when people speak of a “controlled opposition” or a “shill”, maybe that’s why Jones is slowly distancing himself from conspiracy theories, maybe he wants to be taken seriously as some kind of mainstream talk show host, so now he’s flip-flopping his opinion on certain events. The San Bernardino and Paris attacks were definitely not false flags, but 9/11, Boston, and Sandy Hook definitely were, I guess every terrorist attack these days is exactly the way we’re told it went down, the C.I.A. and other powerful acronyms have given up creating fake terrorist events, political opposition is now a bona fide choice, and the media have stopped lying to us… fuck off Jones.
Similar to fake liberal and fake conservative celebrities, Alex Jones is slowly proving that his opinions often conflict with each other. How can the same man be anti-authority, anti-media, anti-elitist, pro-certain-conspiracies and yet anti-other-conspiracies whilst being pro-Republican and anti-immigration? For Jones to be so staunchly against the New World Order how can he then back potential members of the group? How can he be against a North American Union and yet neglect to acknowledge that the United States was divided by European Imperialists? Surely North America was originally the property of the Native Americans, it was only colonially, hawkishly, and arbitrarily chopped-up by white immigrants, so to bring America, Canada, and Mexico together it could be argued is closer to the original layout than the present-day segregated version. Jones can’t be a Paleoconservative but at the same time ignore the original make-up of the land in which he resides and he can’t exist in a world where he thinks the President acts against the citizen’s interests but at the same time be so naive that he thinks the next election will change things. The answer to 1984 according to Alex Jones is 1776 but surely the answer to 1492 is 1790 and 1791.
If Alex Jones is this quick to sellout then I’m embarrassed that I ever watched one of his documentaries, if he was always a sham then I guess I got hustled like everybody else looking for truth during 9/11. I guess the name Info Wars is quite apt because it seems that the powers that be have strategically installed this ranting human egg so that fringes of society don’t have to look further to find a real alternative viewpoint. Type in any conspiracy into a search engine and nine times out of ten Prison Planet, Info Wars, or Alex Jones will appear as the top of the search result. What a great introduction to a conspiracy; a quick-tempered, right-wing, overweight, heterosexual, middle-aged white man from America… how alternative. And hey, when you click on that link to his site, don’t bother looking elsewhere for genuinely suppressed information, everything “alternative” is here on the first page of Google. And while you’re navigating around Jones’ site, be sure to buy yourself a water filtration system, some emergency survival food, and other end of the world, zombie apocalypse, doomsday-prepping junk so he can make more money from your fears. What a crock of shite.
