Alex Jones and Salon: The dialectics of discrediting conspiracy theory

leave a comment »


There’s a big dance going on right now between Alex Jones and Salon over the Boston Marathon Bombing. Salon already bestowed the title “King of Conspiracy Theory” on Jones earlier this year and now they write blogs about him every single day, thus increasing his fame, even though Jones is an obvious crackpot demagogue and in no way a real, organic citizen researcher like myself.

Any sensible person rejected Jones after he recently doctored a pair of Family Guy clips to make it appear the Boston Bombing was predicted by the TV show, a blunder that will forever discredit him. See, Jones likes to push the theory all violence in America is being orchestrated by the Illuminati to mind control us. And when the Colorado shooting happened, that was supposedly a mind control project. Same with Sandy Hook. Never mind the complete lack of any evidence in this regard, Jones and his ilk just mine coincidences and rumors to bolster their cases. See, a Batman movie once mentioned the words “Sandy Hook,” so that means they plan these events decades in advance and place evidence of their plots into the movies and TV so when the crimes happen, it subconsciously controls our mind? It’s hard to even figure out what point they are trying to make with these ridiculous theories.

Jones doctored two Family Guy episodes and then presented this as evidence of an Illuminati mind control experiment. This is just the sort of sophomoric drivel Mark Passio pushes, completely devoid of any real research, just the art of connecting dots that don’t connect and then scaring people with the Illuminati boogeyman.

So why would any sensible person even talk to Alex Jones after he pulled that stunt? Of course two of the biggest “whistleblowers” in America talk to Jones all the time: I’m talking, Wayne Madsen and Sibol Edmonds, both former members of the National Security State whom I wanted to believe were sincere and reliable sources of info, but considering their strong connection to Jones (a manufactured lightning rod, just as Wikileaks is a manufactured lightning rod), I feel I can’t really trust either of them anymore.

I’d assume the National Security State is setting up a dialect with Salon on one side and Jones on the other, as if those two paradigms were our only options to pick from right now. Of course, I always assumed Salon was a CIA op from day one since they need to monitor news portals on the Internet as closely as possible.

So while Salon and Jones conduct their little war against each other, expect the real movie to be going on behind the scenes.
