Following CNN’s entirely non-ratings driven decision to allow Piers Morgan to debate radio host and noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on the issue of gun control, we dove into the archives to find some other examples of Jones’ brand of reasoned and informed commentary. It would be malpractice if we did not share some of the gems we discovered down that rabbit hole. Here are nine of Alex Jones greatest hits.
Round-up by Noah Rothman
Part 1: Alex Jones Loses His Mind: 'You Ruined My Life, You Sons Of Bitches'
In this clip, Jones breaks down under the strain and pressure of being the sole voice of reason amid a sea of sheep. He directs his fury at a number of ill-defined sources who he blames for ruining his life, and who he suspects will one day murder him.
Part 2: Alex Jones Yells At Nuclear Regulators And Environmentalists: “1776!”
Shortly after the Japanese tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, Jones went off on nuclear regulators and environmentalists who he blames for downplaying the threat posed by radiation and nuclear power. “1776,” Jones yelled at them, after a rant against tyrants “jumping around like fairies.”
Part 3: Alex Jones: 'Everything Is A Lie,' 'Hell Is Coming'
Here, Jones discusses his theory that literally every single terror attack or mass shooting is planned and conducted by the United States government. Jones predicts a series of future attacks which will create the political impetus to invite foreign troops to occupy American soil. “Hell is going to be unleashed,” Jones predicts. “That’s part of their plan too.”
Also, this moment, from the Huffington Post, is hot off the air:
Editors note: To be fair, it's not like Alex doesn't make some good points every now and then, but I swear, after every decent point it is almost immediately followed up by the most insane, sensationalized, over-the-top crazy that the first point is instantly discredited in the eyes of any rational observer. And of course that is the true art of all good disinformation - a sublime brew of good points mixed with false-hoods and distortions that ultimately serve to discredit or marginalize the good points by association to the crazy.
That said, listening to Alex in these clips could not be more entertaining or funny.
