Alex Jones, guru to crazy people, hints at government conspiracy in Navy Yard shootings

THIS was inevitable:

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones [above] speculated that the attack on the Washington Navy Yard may have been a false flag operation committed by disguised government agents in pursuit of some obscure goal to restrict liberty. Despite Jones’ far-fetched and often offensive statements, conservative outlets like Fox News and the Drudge Report have continued to promote his theories — coverage that has even inspired legislative action in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

After a gunman attacked the Washington Navy Yard on September 16, Alex Jones immediately wondered if the attack was part of some conspiracy, tweeting, “Who will the Navy yard shooting be blamed on? Terrorist? Tea Partier? Leftist? Lone nut?” Later, on his radio show, Jones said, “when you have multiple shooters like this, it has patsy written all over it,” and compared it to the bombing at the Boston Marathon, which Jones described as “undoubtedly a false flag.” At the time of publication, Reuters reported, “Up to three gunmen, at least two dressed in military-style clothing, killed several people and wounded at least four others in a shooting spree at the U.S. Navy Yard on Monday.”

Jones has long promoted false flag conspiracy theories. He once accused the government of using a weather control machine to devastate Moore, OK, with tornadoes. Jones also claimed that the United States government was behind everything from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, to the Boston Marathon bombing, and even the Newtown, CT, elementary school shooting. Most recently, he questioned whether the New World Order may be using the Syrian civil war as an opportunity to replace the world’s population with human-machine hybrids.

While Jones’ theories may seem outlandish, they often receive promotion among the right-wing media including Fox News. Earlier this year, Matt Drudge declared 2013 would be the “year of Alex Jones.” Jones’ widely debunked conspiracy theory that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been stockpiling weapons and ammunition in order to either commit a coup against the United States or to drive up ammunition prices and keep it out of the hands of American citizens recently spurred the Republican-led House of Representatives to investigate and introduce legislation in order to prevent DHS from stockpiling ammunition.

Jones wasn’t the only right-wing media figure to rush to politicize the tragedy. Others included Fox’s Katie Pavlich and Martha MacCallum and CNN’s S.E. Cupp.

    Pat, I have to ask…why even give this nut some print..?
    He clearly hates Americans…and the things he says are only to get people to notice him.

  2. C’mon Brian,

    You’ve been around long enough to know why Pat does it. It is all part of his usual schtick. But don’t try to change the old dog…..

    doc,

    It’s to remind us that there are a lot of these “real American” types out there. They include the Neo-Nazis, the Klan, the white supremacists, the Birchers, etc.

    BTW, check out this creep’s graphic in the background. It’s a commie made AK-47. How patriotic! To me it’s a slap in the face to people I know (or knew) who are Vietnam vets and have been shot by AK-47s. Yep, real American.

  4. Craig – That graphic behind Alex Jones is fairly generic. It appears to be one of those things made out of words. (There is a name for it, but I forget…) Anyway, it could easily be an AR-15.

  5. Neftali: I think those words in the image behind Jones say this: “If you take away my guns, you’ll rob me of my manhood, and my inner sissy will come to the fore.”

    Or something like that.

    He is a wack job to the tenth degree And watching him go off and wondering what red blooded American would follow such none sence…plus when he starts to yelling his hair goes’ all crazy just like his nutcase self…..just sayin.

  7. Brian Opsahl

    It’s definitly not an AR-15….and it is shaped like an AK-47 commie gun…

  8. Craig Knauss

    Nef,

    Wrong. It’s not shaped anything like an AR-15/M-16. The profile is nearly identical to an AK-47.

    BTW, many, if not most, of the AK-47s sold in this country were made in commie China. I’m not sure the Russians make them any more. They moved to the AK-74 and maybe something even later than that.
