Anyone who knows me knows that I loathe conspiracy theorists. To me it’s the lowest form of political debate. You can never win an argument with any of these kinds of people because whatever proof you present to them will be dismissed as “part of the conspiracy.”
And let’s be honest, anyone can come up with a conspiracy theory.
One of the leaders of the tinfoil hat brigade is Alex Jones, scumbag extraordinaire.
I wrote a piece following the Boston Marathon bombings covering Alex Jones and his batshit crazy list of conspiracy theories—which included the Boston Marathon.
Well, I should have known where there’s tragedy, there will be Alex Jones and his fear mongering. But tornadoes? He couldn’t possibly turn the Oklahoma tornadoes into a conspiracy theory against the government, could he?
You see, Jones has pushed the asinine theory that the government is planning to use a “weather weapon” to “create and steer tornadoes,” and if people saw helicopters and planes in the skies above Oklahoma on Monday, it was most likely evidence that the weapon was used.
I think I’ve finally figured it out — Alex Jones must love comic books. Because only in comics books do you see the types of villains Alex Jones seems to create every time some kind of tragedy or disaster occurs.
The best DC or Marvel comics writers don’t even come close to creating the diabolical plans for world domination Alex Jones conjures up the moment something tragic happens.
It’s really scary so many people follow this jackass. I wouldn’t even mention him if he was some fringe lunatic that only matters to a handful of people, but millions of people across the country buy into this guy’s insanity.
What kind of sick and delusional existence do you live in where you believe the government is “creating and steering” tornadoes against American citizens? And don’t forget, this is on the heels of Mr. Jones accusing the government of being “heavily involved in the Boston Marathon bombing and the cover up of the truth.”
Let’s just look at the past year and what Alex Jones has accused the government of perpetrating. The government, according to Jones, was behind:
- The shooting in the Colorado movie theather
- The Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting
- The Boston Marathon bombing
- Using a “weather weapon” to steer and create tornadoes
And these just go along with a couple of his ongoing conspiracies that accuse the government of sterilizing women through the water supply, and using prescription pills to cause suicides.
My question is, at what point is someone insane? This guy argues that mental illness is behind gun violence, not guns, but how is he not mentally ill? Yet he’s also a huge advocate for the Second Amendment. How can someone feel a man who lives with such paranoid delusion is mentally stable enough to own guns?
And you can’t convince me that someone who believes that the government ordered the killing of over 20 elementary school children, bombed a marathon and created tornadoes to kill Americans, isn’t insane.
Yet Alex Jones feels he’s perfectly sane and we are all the insane ones not to believe him. However, anyone who feels the government is using a “weather weapon” to cause tornadoes, in my opinion, is certifiably insane.
And any individual that uses every tragic event that strikes this nation to promote their theories of hate and irrational paranoia—is a pathetic human being.
But the truth is I don’t even consider Alex Jones human. He’s just a parasite that feeds off ignorance and thrives on fear.
