Conspiracy nut Alex Jones goes bananas on Piers Morgan’s show. All good fun, but Jones doesn’t speak for gun owners
Alex Jones appeared on Piers Morgan’s show last night to explain why Piers should be deported from the US. Jones is a Right-wing radio star who deals in wide-eyed conspiracy theories of the “Queen Elizabeth is a Communist Lizard” variety. So, predictably, Jones brought on the crazy.
His main points:
1. The US government is killing everyone with suicide pills, otherwise known as “Prozac”
2. Britain is something between an anarchy and a police state
3. Barack Obama is building himself up to an all-out war against the suckers who voted for him
4. The only people in the world capable of resisting the New World Order tyranny are those with guns.
The authors conclusion? Jones is a “fruit loop”. While we don’t condone calling people names, sometimes it really does fit. There is nothing logical to say about Jones and his paranoid rants. They are not based in fact or reality. To have such a debate on TV elevates Jones to a place of prominance (though he already has that) and should not have been done. Nice for ratings, but you just legitimized some illegitimate nonsense in some people’s eyes.
<sarcasm on>Nice going CNN. Now lunatic ideas are legitimate news.
