OK, maybe I do get a case of Schadenfreude on occasion.
Alex Jones is not surprised that the media is reporting that Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a fan of his Infowars website, he told BuzzFeed on Tuesday.
“It’s just standard,” Jones said. “Anyone you talk to is familiar with my show. When I go out in public, half the people I meet in this country and in other countries too say they listen to my show. The show is bigger than the mainstream media admits.”
Don’t think TOO highly of yourself Alex. Many people listen just for a laugh or to see how low the bar can go.
He calls his show anti-terrorism. Is it? I don’t listen.
I don’t really care if the bombers were fans of his show. His views incite many others. He continues to make claims that have come out of thin air, manufactured, with no evidence. Someday he may yell “FIRE” in a crowded theatre. Is that defensible? Is he just “asking questions” here? He’s made a very uncomfortable bed to lie in.
Some people believe him.
She wrote: “Just as you said would happen. Top Down, Bottom UP. The Boston Marathon was a Black Ops ‘terrorist’ attack. One suspect killed, the other one will be too before they even have a chance to speak. Drones and now ‘terrorist’ attacks by our own Government. Sad day, but a ‘wake up’ to all of us. First there was a ‘suspect’ then there wasnt. Infowars broke the story and they knew they had been ‘found out’.”
Rationality is a rare thing these days.
