Alex Jones goes off on Anderson Cooper. He’s right, in a way – the media fosters violence much more than people like Alex Jones, or even Sarah Palin. Because she’s given voice without being condemned – just treated like a celebrity talking. But the people who are most stupid in the tea party probably do not disagree with a million dead Iraqis. So Barack Obama is a terrorist but George Bush wasn’t. I don’t have poll numbers, but the majority of people talking about “the constitution” and “liberty” are not Paulites, but dead-enders who didn’t care when Bush did much worse.
But Alex Jones can be entertaining. He shouldn’t be so quick to go Godwin, or basically lose it completely, but that’s Alex Jones, and it’s a shame he’s the main representative of these type of ideas – especially since some of them are true.
