Alex Jones

NPR Does Alex Jones

Plus bonus Jones videos from Richard Linklater and Mike Judge

|

All Things Considered's David Folkenflik did a report today on the conspiracy-chasing talk-show host Alex Jones. Because I wrote a book about conspiracy theories, I was one of the people Folkenflik interviewed. You can listen to it here:

Folkenflik's story leads with last weekend's PizzaGate shooting, in which an Alex Jones fan fired a rifle in a D.C. pizza joint because he believed child sex slaves were being held there. But Folkenflik interviewed me on Friday—two days before the incident—so I didn't say anything about that. Instead I'm quoted on the general contours of Jones' worldview. The written version of the report extends my cameo a little longer than it lasts on the radio, adding a line that contrasts my thoughts on Jones' politics with the Southern Poverty Law Center's views on the topic.

When I was chatting with Folkenflik, I mentioned that if I ever write a profile of Jones, the two people I'd most want to interview for it are the filmmakers Richard Linklater and Mike Judge. Linklater put Jones in his 2001 movie Waking Life, and it's a rather interesting scene to watch now that Jones has attracted national notoriety. Jones is generally understood as a "right-wing" guy, and I understand why that's so. (He certainly isn't a leftist.) But he slips easily into the Phildickian film's countercultural worldview, condemning "dehumanization," "classism," "systems of control," and "this corporate slave state" as he drives through a dreamscape:

And Judge? Jones conducted a chummy interview with the Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill creator back in 2013. It's a pretty fascinating conversation, especially when the talk turns to Dale Gribble, King of the Hill's resident conspiracy theorist. Dale, Judge chuckles, "probably gives you guys a bad name":

It's not easy to imagine, say, Rush Limbaugh delivering the rant in the first video or the interview in the second. Any accounting of Alex Jones' worldview—and of the place he occupies in our cultural terrain—needs to consider the question of what people like Linklater and Judge see in the man, and vice versa.

Obligatory advertisement: As I said at the top, I wrote a book about conspiracy stories. It's called The United States of Paranoia, and if you find this stuff interesting you may find the book interesting too. But I should probably note upfront that it mentions Jones just once, and only fleetingly at that.

  1. So, I read that whole column. It certainly looked like it was in English, but… WTF ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY?

    1. Some guy talked to him this one time.

      1. And it was on the radio. Opening act for SPLC, a clown college.

    2. I thought Doherty owned the incoherent blog post beat?

  2. Argle bargle references argle bargle. I just reread it. It still makes no sense. I mean, I’m drinking and smoking, but I’m always smoking and drinking: I may miss some subtleties, but I usually understand the point of the article. WTF is the point of RTFA, if the FA doesn’t make a point?

    1. “I was interviewed for a story on NPR. You can listen to the NPR story here. Here are a few more thoughts on the subject of the story. The end.”

      Not really an article. A blog post, of the “click here to hear me on the radio” genre.

      1. I enjoyed it immensely. Please keep up the good work.

      2. All This Considered

        Are you really are trying to get kicked out of the leftoid cocktail circuit, eh?

        All THINGS Considered.

        1. So NOW you fix it, after our twitter chat.

      3. OK, Jesse. The fact that you actually replied to me makes me feel bad for harshing your column. But, come on, guy, this ain’t the Twitter.

          1. He’s not your buddy, pal.

            1. Damn you, chum!

          2. He’s not your buddy, dude.

            1. He’s not your dude, friend.

              1. yeah, bro…

      4. I had no trouble understanding it.

        And better to hawk your book than the Reason webathon.

  3. Conspiracy theories are in some cases the masses’ only leverage over the elite. They don’t actually believe them, they just say they do for the purpose of gaining power. Trump is a perfect example – the irony being of course, that they are the conspirators. Even the pizza gate guy probably didn’t believe the story. More likely he has a long history of sociopathy and mischief which he justifies with ‘mental illness’ or ‘drug addiction’ – other conspiracy theories that also eventually took on a life of their own.

    Having said that, 9/11 was a CIA operation. They had long been flying over mujahedeen for training. So this was just a modification of that operation – a different type of training. In fact the CIA hid the identity of these guys from the FBI. Alex Gibney does a nice piece on this in the New Yorker documentary series.

    1. ^see what i mean? Looks like English, but total gibberish.

      1. Looks like that to you because you just don’t get it. They got you, man.

      2. Must be your fluoridated water.

        1. Precious bodily fluids.

      3. Having said that, everything before but is bullshit. Same rules apply.

    2. No you moron, 9/11 was a Reptilian operation designed by our alien overlords to create a police state and a justification to harvest human gonads via war to sell on the intergalactic black market. Wake up sheeple.

      1. STEEL DOESN’T MELT AT 465.3 DEGREEEEEES!

        1. It doesn’t, but I think you’re talking Canadian.

          1. Goddamn metric system is what’s next. How many liters of petrol per hectare or whatever? Once we can’t count any physical thing anymore, Phase C starts.

            1. “HOW DOES A BASE 10 SYSTEM WORK?”

              -Confused Americans

              1. I’m not confused. YOU ARE.

                This is what caused the Gimli Glider, you hoser.

              2. HOW DOES A BASE 10 SYSTEM WORK?

                Ya mean the one with 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day?

                1. Goddam earth, sun and moon refuse to cycle in comparable multiples of ten.

                  Now there’s a conspiracy for ya.

                  1. That and it’s easier to divide a circle into 12 even slices than 10.

      2. Sure, believe in reptile lords. Then when UNATCO is formed and the Grey Death shows up, you’ll be looking at the wrong place!

        1. Bob Page is a false flag operation invented by Warren Spector. I mean, come on, Thomas Aquinas quotes, Greek mythology references, the Illuminati? It’s like he was written by weirdo 90s video game nerds. The Reptilians show their influence throughout history, and one day they’ll land on the Memphis Bass Pro Pyramid just like they did in Egypt thousands of years ago.

        2. The thing I like most about Reason comments is that they have a timestamp and cannot be edited. History will show that no one ever defended me from this bullying – and that it didn’t even matter. I’d love to see you come up with a conspiracy theory to explain that. Here’s a hint: “Jesus complex.”

          1. History will show, sir. History will indeed show. Well said.

            I will reread your comment, but in Alistair Cooke (RIP) voice.

          2. You know too much dajjal, and they’re monitoring this site as we speak. In a week your testicles will be on a Fzrbecian dinner plate near Alpha Ceti. Unless you’re…one of them.

            1. We no longer need your ‘protection’, John. But hey, thanks for the offer.

        3. I don’t worry about reptile lords. When they attack, I assume the extreme stress will cause my vast latent mutant powers to manifest. Then the shit will be on!

  4. However, props for mentioning Dale Gribbel, AKA “Rusty Shackleford”, AKA “Scott Shackford”.

    1. Was going to say…one of the all-time great characters.

      And that running gag about Joseph was hilarious.

      1. John Redcorn was a total shit.

      2. His global warming theory was perfect.


        “We’ll grow oranges in Alaska”

        The first link I found wasn’t the full clip, and I couldn’t be bothered to look past the first link….. but Hank’s response was also perfect:

        “Dale, you giblet-head, we live in Texas. It’s already a hundred and ten in the summer, and if it gets one degree hotter, I’m gonna kick your ass!”

  5. “Psychiatry doesn’t cause mental illness – that’s absurd!” In fact it does, and as many stories as we read about how people were manipulated into mental illness and addiction by the ‘mental health’ industry, we still refuse to see the obvious. Recently Dateline did a story of a psychiatrist manipulating her patient into attacking her husband. Then there are all the fake autism stories – people trained to act ‘off’ to create a market for dependence and dysfunction. (There is literally nothing wrong with them.) Most of the mass shooters (and stabbers) were victims of modern mental illness theory. Researchers have shown that intensive treatment for depression actually causes it. Same for drug addiction. I wouldn’t be surprised if the pizza gate guy had a long history of ‘treatment’.

    CNN has presented a number of documentaries recently debunking various cults, e.g. “Holy Hell” and “Enlighten Us”. Also Scientology has been debunked. We are going after bigger and bigger prizes. Soon AA and Trumpkinism will on the chopping block.

    1. Doesn’t contention of your first paragraph kind of validate Scientology?

      Just say’in.

    2. “Recently Dateline did a story of a psychiatrist manipulating her patient into attacking her husband. ”

      No actually, they did a story debunking his claims that he was manipulated.

      Which they accomplished very successfully.

  6. Jesse will venture into the the comments to fight the snark. That’s why we love him.

  7. Marketing content to those who want to believe in conspiracy theories is a great business model. It’s why that lunatic hipster Glenn Beck is a hero of mine.

  8. Jesse Walker’s adversary: a horrible woman from the Southern Poverty Law Center who is just as much of a conspiracy theorist as Alex Jones.

    1. A guy I know is big into Jones; at least when I bumped into last. Known him since kindergarten. One of those brilliant messed up minds we often see. It’s always interesting to hear really smart people believe in all sorts of shit.

      1. Reminds me of the conversations we had at randi.org back in the day. It’s weird how some people who are so skeptical of everything they see or read in the mainstream are paradoxically so gullible when it comes to conspiracy theories.

      2. People are looking for new sources of media in much greater numbers, so the Elks Jones of the world are gonna become even more popular and powerful. I believe Joe Rogan’s podcast is downloaded close to 30 million times a month!

        I need to put some clothes on and start ranting on YouTube or something.

        1. Rogan isn’t a CT though, no?

          1. He is not like Alex Jones, but he does like to…raise questions…and discuss many different topics. I don’t think it’s bad to discuss different topics, but he used to spend a lot of time talking about September 11, and I think even spoke about it with Alex Jones.

          2. I’ve heard that Rogan might finally believe that men walked on the moon. Not sure if this helps or hurts his audience appeal.

            1. The flipside is he will spend three hours having a captivating conversation with a Canadian clinical psychologist. It’s a fascinating concept.

              1. Is that part of his campaign to get Dr. Drew on his show?

                1. Drew and Carolla was funny back in the day.

              2. I saw that Jordan Peterson or something?

                I happened to think that was good and pretty on the ball.

          3. He had Jesse Ventura on his show recently, for what that’s worth.

        2. In hindsight, my optimism of 20 yrs ago that bullshit would take a lethal hit with the advent of the Internet because of transparency, fact checking, etc. was a trifle naive.

          1. Me, too! I thought the easy availability of information would help settle arguments. Silly me!

            1. It has killed the “bar bet.” Remember when you could bet on things because no one had the answer literally at-hand?

              And get off my lawn!

              1. That was the inspiration for my thought. I imagined a jukebox-like computer terminal in bars, allowing people to settle bets. I did not imagine that we’d all be carrying one in our pocket.

        3. Elks Jones?

          I don’t believe that is his name.

          1. Oh deer, are you a moose-ad agent?

            1. That’s what you get for trying to buck the system.

              1. ::gazelle::

    2. And The Daily Beast was cited! It’s like an orgy of fake news!

      1. But no Glen Beck.

        You can use it as a contemporary Hot! or Not? of idiot politics.

  9. Alex Jones is the Geraldo Rivera of Texas.

    1. I’ve never listened to the guy, but I get a feeling he’s more like George Noory

  10. if I ever write a profile of Jones, the two people I’d most want to interview for it are the filmmakers Richard Linklater and Mike Judge

    Aren’t they each some version of “Texas Avante-Garde”? Its not surprising they vibe.

    *i know Judge is not technically a texan, but born abroad and raised in New Mexico is close enough.

    1. They all live in Austin, where our city motto is “Keep Austin Weird.” We define ourselves as the anti-Dallas, even though Dallas isn’t really That Place anymore. We are interesting and funny and get the jokes and never worry about fashion or wear neckties. We are the place that made a celebrity of Leslie Cochran, a homeless transvestite.

      I used to watch Jones’ show on cable access in the late 90’s and early 00’s. He came on between the guy who played anti-rock-music videos and the Austrian accordian player who sang Bob Wills songs in German. He ranted about moon bases and the government being lizard people. His big splash was sneaking into the Bohemian Grove meeting and filming rich Californians get drunk in togas. Judge and Linklater saw him as one more weird person in their weird home town, proof that we were special and tolerant and let the loons have nicer hobbies than Houston would. After you’ve seen a guy rant for hours about lizard people it’s kinda hard to take him seriously when he talks about the melting point of steel girders. Once he was given a national audience, however, people forgot the earlier whackaloon stuff, and tried to engage him on the facts about steel girders. That was a spectacularly unsuccessful gambit. Someone needs to get the tape of those old cable access shows.

  11. Crime is one of the biggest conspiracies of them all. We are taught that temptation is simply too great, and some people succumb. Yet if you actually examine a crime you discover that in most cases people were manipulated by law enforcement. And of course, this is all paid for by the people who actually work an honest day (and Chinese singletons who are also taking care of both parents). So it is a conspiracy by the low and middle classes. The sad thing is when smart people like Pinker buy into it and actually perpetuate it by finding excuses for the dummies. Like “Oh they were manipulated by the smart people.”

  12. Yay, I was finally able to listen to it. And was disappointed it was all of four minutes, with, what, 10 seconds of Jesse? Did I miss something? That’s what they call “report” on ostensibly super-important figure of extreme right?

    I love that Jones doesn’t get to start or finish a single sentence. Nice investigation. Serbian Radio-TV cca 1991 would think it a bit lopsided, but they’d run it.

  13. Sometimes I think conspiracy theories are a reaction by people who can’t imagine their own insignificance.

    I had a conversation with a group of Muslims, once. It was circa 2005. I couldn’t even get them to consider the possibility that the Middle East and North Africa were simply a regional battlefield in the Cold War. That there wasn’t any grand conspiracy against Islam apart from that.

    The Ottoman Empire fell apart in the wake of World War I. France and Great Britain, being imperialists, divvied up the spoils like they always had. When World War II came to an end, some of the post-colonial emerging states sided with our enemy–the Soviet Union.

    We supported Israel because they were our allies against Soviet backed states in the region. We’d support almost anybody who would be our strategic ally against the Soviet Union. When we supported vicious dictators like the Shah or Mubarak, it was against forces backed by the communists. It was about the communism–not Islam.

    We did the same kind of thing in Korea, supporting Marcos in the Philippines, Pinochet in Chile. We supported anti-communist forces in El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua–and none of that was a grand conspiracy meant to keep Muslims down. I’ve had Korean nationals tell me that the United States wants to keep Korea divided between North and South because our government is afraid we couldn’t compete with them if they were united.

    1. Very true.

  14. The real explanation for world events between 1917 and 2017 comes across like Lovecraftian horror–specifically in regards to the powerlessness and insignificance of humanity. What if our government overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran simply because it was backed by the USSR? What if our government backed Israel and Saddam Hussein simply because they were willing to fight against the USSR’s allies?

    What if it had nothing to do with keeping Islam down?

    What if governments completely dismiss the lives of the people they destroy as unimportant and insignificant?

    That last question is the one conspiracy theorists don’t want to consider. For some reason, controlling us is assumed to be important.

    But why would the Illuminati want to control Dale? What makes Dale worth controlling? World events aren’t about trying to control people like Dale. The whole world isn’t about controlling Dale.

  15. the Southern Poverty Law Center’s views on the topic.

    I have asked this before in multiple forms of media =

    – why does anyone take those people seriously?

    To me they aren’t any more-credible or valid than @#()*$@ VDare.com. They’re absolutely batshit partisan, and every year they manage to claim that there’s a New Outbreak of Even Worse Domestic Hate And Terror than the previous

    Reuters wrote a series of pieces based almost solely on the SPLC’s claims of ‘spiking hate crimes’ in the wake of Trump’s election. The WaPo slips them in on a regular basis. Basically everyone will cite them… *selectively*. Because if they provided the full executive summaries of the studies they’re citing? They’d end up mentioning some completely implausible, batshit claim that would undermine the whole thing.

    Which always makes me wonder whether the writers who cite them know how bullshit they are, but use their ginned-up data anyway. Because “Easy Story”.

    1. I’m surprised anyone takes them seriously after the expos?s of the SPLC’s vast wealth, including offshore accounts and Morris Dee’s huge, art-filled mansion. Hate pays very well, it seems.

      1. Funny article on the Poverty Palace:

        http://pamelageller.com/2011/0…..nter.html/

        My favorite part:
        “This shiny thing-a-mabob with the #20 on it is described as “A poolside rickshaw at the home of Morris Dees and Susan Starr in Montgomery, Ala,” because nothing screams Equality! like a fancy rickshaw.”

        1. Yup, that’s one of the things I was thinking of. and this quote is gold:

          Writing in a June, 1998, issue of The Nation, a leftist weekly, writer Alexander Cockburn observed:

          “Morris Dees has raised an endowment of close to $100 million, with which he’s done little, by frightening elderly liberals that the heirs of Adolph Hitler are about to march down Main Street, lynching blacks and putting Jews into ovens. The fundraising of Dees and the richly rewarded efforts of terror mongers like Leonard Zeskind offer a dreadfully distorted view of American political realities.”

        2. the hell is that thing on his coffee table? The guy must worship cthulhu.

    2. They’re not crazy.

      To quote the bomber in Speed: “Poor people are crazy; rich people are eccentric.”

  16. “Racism” is another conspiracy theory. In fact, it’s just an excuse to plunder a vulnerable class. Often these people have fantasies of sexually exploiting the races they supposedly ‘hate’. But they have trolls to act like racists, and often these are the victims of the ‘racists’ themselves. In fact many of the supposedly anti-Semitic trolls I’ve encountered online are actually Jewish – and they disappear as soon as you point this out. Of course not all, some are trolls for the military-defense industries, who get a small piece of the billions that is sent yearly to Israel to protect them from the ‘jihadis’. Who they instigate to violence – much as Trump is now trying to do. Other than plundering a vulnerable class, they also want to create a police state with armed guards outside every hotel, restaurant and convenience store. And then of course the big data companies trolling for telltale signs of radicalization. Seriously these people need to get a life.

    1. It’s like Inception in here.

      1. Sorry. (((Inception)))

  17. npr?

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  18. Anyone “More Analog Than Thou” Has Just Been One-Upped For All Time.

    *as cute as this is, i don’t really believe its real, for reasons i will spare you the ‘sperging.

  19. They enforce both crime and terrorism with extortion: “If you don’t believe in crime or terrorism then we’ll let the criminals/terrorists attack you.” Internet companies often fall for this, e.g. Facebook and Twitter. They give Zuckerberg a picture of him burning supposedly created by “ISIS” (using Hollywood quality production values) and he does whatever they tell him. With drug addiction the strategy is slightly different: “If you don’t believe in drug addiction then you are in denial – you are a drug addict!” Amazingly millions of people fell for it. Hard to believe, but so be it. These are just twists on old school witch hunts.

  20. A Scanner Darkly might have been a perfect libertarian film had it been [spoiler alert] the government instead of a corporation behind everything.

  21. They also enforce mental illness with extortion: “If you don’t believe in mental illness then you are crazy!” It’s pretty stupid and funny how we still fall for it. The Soviets made an artform out of it: “If you think the government is after you then you have an illness and must be sent to the Gulag!” It’s just so stupid, yet millions found it perfectly sensible. The whole system could have been taken down with just a laugh. Yet no one did. Supposedly the journalist who discovered that the Lockerbie bombing was not Qadafi, but was a CIA drugs op gone awry – he was bullied by government agents to drive him crazy. He eventually killed himself. I don’t understand that – what could they have possibly said to upset him so much? Well fortunately that will not happen again, at least in this country.

  22. OK, I read it. I recognize Rush Limbaugh, but no one else, nor did I see any connection to libertarianism.
    Yeah, we all need to avoid the tin-foil-hat stuff, but, uh…

  23. What I find most amazing is that no one ever agrees with me let alone defends me from the insults and bullying. Surely there would be some ‘crazy’ person out there who would think what I write makes sense. Yet there are none – not a single person. Amazing! And yet this is another thing convinces me that ‘crazy’ simply doesn’t exist. It’s a myth.

    It also disproves the ‘fake news’ hypothesis that people will believe anything and can be manipulated. Obviously they don’t – they pick and choose based on what they think they can get away with. The FBI murder/suicide story is a perfect example: how can anyone believe it but never that they are part of a larger conspiracy?

  24. Muslim explains his journey from nearly becoming a terrorist to being an advocate for Israel. Youtube bans the video as hate speech.

    http://legalinsurrection.com/2…..hate-jews/

    1. Just scratch the surface – this is an encomium to Alan Dershowitz – the despicable loon who supports the white-supremacist Bannon even as he vilifies Ellison for being ‘anti-Semitic’. The goal is to enact more ‘hate speech’ laws like the anti-BDS legislation that already passed in NY and CA and will soon be nationalized just in time for Trump for exploit it. The laws which radicalized the preachers who supposedly radicalized this guy, and the laws which if left unchecked, will end up radicalizing decent Americans. Obama was exactly right today when he spoke about free speech and the danger of overreacting. But yet – people are in the mood to overreact these days. Quite a conundrum we find ourselves in.

      1. But – youtube’s banning this video is self-defeating. They had to restore it, and eventually they will realize that banning things just doesn’t work. In fact, it’s what creates the problem to begin with. That’s why I’m overall optimistic. It’s almost like we’ve learned from our mistakes. Dare I speak too soon…..

    2. The video in question has since been reinstated. YT can be forgiven for assuming a Muslim video called “Born to Hate Jews” was probably not pro-Jew.

      (They still need to be broken up using antitrust law though)

  25. People say that conspiracy theories are bullshit, that no group of people could keep a big secret long enough to make conspiracies viable…. then turn around and join the rest of adult society in convincing their kids that Santa Claus is real, with help from the “education” system, the mainstream media, the National Weather Service, and even NORAD.

    1. Here’s an example: “I’m voting for Hillary.” Though, I honestly wonder how many of these people actually believed it before walking into the voting booth and pulling the lever for Trump.

      1. What does that have to do with fucking Santa Claus?

        1. Do not make eye contact with it. Puts ’em on edge. Set the cake down gently and back away slowly.

        2. Trumpkins conspired to trick the pollsters. But Santa knows they were naughty.

    2. The difference is most of the people helping that conspiracy were the former dupes of it. In other words, it’s not really a conspiracy; it’s running prank.

    3. Chip Your Pets|12.7.16 @ 12:02AM|#
      “People say that conspiracy theories are bullshit, that no group of people could keep a big secret long enough to make conspiracies viable…. then turn around and join the rest of adult society in convincing their kids that Santa Claus is real, with help from the “education” system, the mainstream media, the National Weather Service, and even NORAD.”

      OK, my sarc meter says “joke”, and I’m going with it.

        1. Not clarifying matters; tending away from “joke”.

  26. Trumpkins act stupid – for the purpose of making us think they were manipulated by ‘fake news’ and Putin and conspiracy theories. In fact they are reasonably smart – but they play dumb to hide the jealousy and blood lust. Their desire is to exploit the vulnerable classes for fun and profit. In their minds they justify it as helping their children. But in fact, their children don’t want their bloodied spoils. It’s really up to millenials to put a stop to it. WW III will cost much more than $20T. I think they will soon realize it. The problem is that everyone is so afraid that someone else will get a little more – so instead they make sure that everyone gets nothing. And they think they are so smart.

    1. OK, my sarc meter is swinging wildly, but tending toward ‘stupidity’.

      1. Again – good example that none will agree with me. Surely if I was so stupid (or crazy) there would be someone else – who would defend me out of pity at the very least. But no one. Am I really so exceptional? Well wouldn’t that be something. And if so – wouldn’t anyone want to study it? I am amazed mostly by the sheer incuriousity.

        1. OK, bzzzt!
          Thanks for playing. Here’s a watch; get lost.

          1. Why aren’t you at all curious, Sevo? And why even bother responding to me when you know it will only provoke another response? I’m genuinely curious. Am I really the last genuinely curious person on the planet? No, of course I’m not. I can’t be!

            1. Checking the sarc meter calibration, finding a true “stupid” reading.
              Get lost.

              1. Or hey, maybe I am. Weird. I wonder if Twilight Zone ever did an episode like this.

                1. Oddly enough, the “Twilight Zone” theme is exactly what I hear in my head when I read your posts.

  27. “Build the wall!” – This is a great example of a common lie – everyone knows the wall will never be built. So what’s the point? Aren’t these people terrified of illegals? Don’t make me laugh. They never show fear, only aggression and thirst for violence. The goal is to round up millions of people and imprison and kill them. Because we can’t deport them because we don’t have a wall yet, dummy. And how long will it take to build the wall? The wall just got 10 feet higher, jerkwad.

  28. Trump will put the coal miners back to work, that’s for sure.

  29. The fact that none will agree with me is proof that the whole idea of ‘conspiracy theory’ is itself a conspiracy theory. Because I stumbled upon the best conspiracy theory of them all – but the response is hostility and aggression. Which is fine – again what’s weird is that no one else is interested in the theory at any level, even as something to study. I mean you’d think a mental health professional would be curious – they love studying and telling stories about ‘crazy’ people. And I’ve been saying the same thing for years. Bottom line: people don’t really believe in conspiracy theories, they just say they do (or that others do) for the purpose of gaining power. Which they eventually did – congrats. It’s an empty victory.

  30. How’s this for a conspiracy theory – you’re all just a bunch of zombies trying to fool me into believing your conspiracy theory that you’re human. Good one! It’s like Wayward Pines meets Truman Show.

    1. Me? I’m a zombie. I get my brains at Costco. 10lb frozen Family Size Econo-Pack. Beats wandering around the neighborhood? that’ll get you shot!

    2. My, Grandma, what big teeth you have.

  31. CNN does Van Jones and Michael Moore and the fat turd whines and whines:

    “Michael Moore torches Trump during CNN town hall”
    […]
    “Moore replied, “There’s nothing in his behavior. The man is, first of all, a malignant narcissist, and he’s only about himself, folks. And you’re about to see that happen.”
    Groans could be heard off-camera.”

    By those who recognized projection?

    1. I’ll bet the off-camera groans were due to the crew’s discovery that Michael Moore had just been ‘only about himself’ in the studio toilet.

  32. INTELLECTUAL LEADERS OF THE RIGHT

    Out: William F. Buckley, Jr.

    In: Alex Jones

    1. INTELLECTUAL LEADERS OF THE LEFT

      Out: Gore Vidal

  33. Did NPR do a story on Trump supporters or MAGA hat wearers or suspected Trump voters being beaten at rallies or dragged from cars by people who heard from NPR and its audience that Trump supporters were racists?

  34. Or how about a story on how the left wing’s microaggression nonsense drove a Somali refugee to attempt to mass murder college students with a knife and car?

    No they want to build this non-event about one crazy guy’s attempt at saving what he thought were kidnapping victims, which hurt no one (except the wall?) into the national narrative of the day.
