What I love about the comments here

Is everyone wants a "fake" talking head who looks like the establishment and acts like the establishment because you think that is what is needed to get our country back.

We have had enough FAKE and Alex is being 100% raw and real with his emotions when push comes to shove.

What do YOU do when someone wants YOUR rights removed?

act civilized, quiet and do what the status quo asks of you?

he at least had the balls to go out there and draw a line in the sand versus balance across it like many here want him to do.

Exactly

Personally, I think America is moving beyond the scripts. Although Ron Paul's meekness is one of his strengths in my opinion, most Americans don't want an apparent wimp for President. Although Alex appeared a bit irrational at times, Piers came across as a pompous and condescending jackass.

Here is the problem with your way of thought

You can't "punch" every problem in the face. This isn't GI Joe vs Cobra and the game is played at very high levels. The reason RP is so successful even with some on the Left is because he doesn't fly off the handle when given ridiculous proposals to vote on or when mud is thrown at him by the far right Neo-Cons. He takes the facts, historical data, and a firm grasp on Constitutional principles and breaks them down to a common man's level while presenting them with intelligence and compassion.

Stop looking for a fight everywhere you go because not everyone is a party hack, most folk are everyday people who may have never even heard the message of Liberty to even begin to understand it. If you take the time to sit with someone and spread message of Liberty it doesn't need to applied with a baseball bat or a megaphone. Once people truly understand Liberty and how our government is robbing it from us it spreads like wildfire.

There is a reason the phrase is called "wildman screaming in the wilderness" because if that's the only way you know how to communicate (such as Alex) that is where your message will stay and eventually die. Your neighbors next door who voted for Obama are not members of the Bilderberg Group nor do they even know the government purchased thousands of rounds of hallow point ammo and you come at them screaming like a fool "NWO, NWO, THE ELITES, NWO, AHAHSHAHAH!" they are going to turn you off, plain and simple. But if you discuss how we are losing our basic civil rights, how are tax dollars are being wasted, or how our children are not going to have the freedoms that we had you will at least have the opportunity to plant the seeds of Liberty. Sometimes a seed is all it takes...

You want a loud mouthed bully who solves every problem with edgy confrontation then vote for Newt, I'll pass.

Walk softly and carry a large caliber stick.

Be wary. Suggest, confirrn and affirm. Marx's Dialectic

Show fans tune in to hear Pier's suggestions. Then hear them confirmed followed by experts that affirmed the danger of people like Alex. A new suggestion.

The new suggestion is that the "dangerous" so called should have their guns stolen by the government.

I was eating lunch in the hospital a few minutes ago

Piers was being interviewed on CNN on a background tv and they showed a clip of Jones ranting. A group of physicians stopped talking, looked at the screen, and starting laughing.

Intrepret it however you want.

That's how

99.99999% of america is going to react to it. Unfortunately it seems like people here don't understand that it doesn't matter if your right....it's about the delivery of the information. This was horrible for us.

scum doctors, take your flu

scum doctors, take your flu shots and keep laughing

lawrence

Why

you gotta be a douche about it? The poster was just relaying information. Information many here should probably pay attention to if they want this movement to continue growing.

Did you play the part of wallpaper?

"That Alex is cray about the truth"

Or Alex gets crazy about all the lies the TV tells."

Interpret however you want.

Free includes debt-free!

I didn't say anything. I wasn't sitting with them.

Everyone I was with is pro-gun.

I have been criticizing Alex Jones for months. I have no interest in defending him. I support freedom (and Ron Paul), not demagogues.

How do you lose the gun debate to Pierce Morgan? Like THAT.

Thank you, Alex. You crazy good for nothing traitor. Leave our movement and don't ever come back. That goes for anyone brainwashed enough to not see just how bad this was. How embarrassing.

Alex Whupped Piers

Now that I've had a half a day to let what Alex did sink in, I realize it's exactly what was needed. #1 Twitter, top of Drudge Report, need I say more? Alex drives the conversation and he drove Piers Morgan into the ground. Our country has been taken over and bankrupted! Thank god Alex Jones is defending us. FX883, just out of curiosity what is the greatest thing you have done for the "movement"? I'm curious because Alex built his own media network that reaches 3,000,000+ patriots a day. What did you do?

Christo Garcia

Why do you put so much weight on Alex Jones?

Alex Jones doesn't represent me, or any movement. He is a radio personality. He is doing what he does best: self promotion. The clip was entertaining. I laughed at the fake British accent, and Jones did manage to stick in a few valid points.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

He Does represent us, the

He Does represent us, the liberty movement, in the minds of the masses.

Fyi

His name is Piers Morgan, not Pierce like you keep saying

Smart tactic

Smooth move by Piers: Take the worst possible ambassador for something you oppose and put him in the national spotlight. Alex Jones was a monumental embarrassment to those who seek to preserve the 2nd Amendment. And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, this moron decides he'll mock Piers' British accent at great length?? What is he, a 12-year old?? What I'd give to put Tom Woods in that chair instead.

Amen

i was thinking the same thing through this. Very intelligent move by Piers....bring on someone that will look like a complete loon....get him to blow up...ask a few questions about 911...and then end the show with "this is my opposition".

Tom Woods all the way.

I admit

that I have a very strong dislike for Alex Jones.

However, after reading the comments here and elsewhere I went ahead and watched the clip. And I must admit that Alex did a pretty fair job of putting PM in his place and getting information out to the people of the US that they most probably didn't know.
(doesn't mean I'll go back to watching Alex Jones, still don't like him!)

" And I must admit that Alex did a pretty fair job of putting PM in his place and getting information out to the people of the US that they most probably didn't know."

No, he really didn't.

RP is dangerous, so dangerous

Horrrrrrriiiibllllleeeeee

Ugghhh. Alex Jones did an amazing job of looking like a loony nut crazed wacko. What I can't understand is why this has so many upvotes? Daily Paul used to be filled with reasonable people that would get our points across in a civilized manner. You let your facts speak - not the loudness of your voice. This was pure Bill O'reilly by Mr Jones, only about 5 times worse....O'reilly is tough to beat in that department but Mr. Jones did a fantastic job.

It's such a shame too because Alex is a warehouse of stats and information. If he could calm himself down and get the points across in a sane persons fashion it might actually convince people...instead he looked like a complete loon and i have no doubt turned many people away from these ideas.

This type of crap doesn't help us people - even if he's right about what he's talking about. It's not just about being right - it's about influencing people...bringing people into the movement through collected and influential facts....it's about showing we aren't nutcases on national TV and we have control over our emotions. When have you ever seen Dr. Paul act like this? Never.

I agree with Jones....but holy crap - this destroyed us....the less Mr. Jones gets on national TV from now on the better our ideas will be able to spread and influence people....unless he makes major modifications to his delivery.

It gets upvotes...

because MOST people here realize that the time for playing "nice" is over!

Have you looked at the response? This is HUGE for America!

Unless, of course, you listen to the media that ignored Ron Paul and LIED about his following.

You are NOT listening to them on this, are you?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Disagree

you start acting like this everywhere and the movement will be over....or at least at full capacity....because no sane person out there is convinced to change their beliefs to come over to our side by these behaviors.

Agree

I'm with John23 on this... I think the general masses have the incorrect pre-conceived notions about the movement and this will just reinforces their incorrect belief.

I'm old enough to remember...

This is how they marginalized the "End Vietnam" movement. They take the loudest, most foolish among us and place them front and center.

Remembering who your audience in how you present the message is just as important as the message.

Exactly

and i guarantee that Piers was more than happy this happened.

The airport incident with the

The airport incident with the TSA must have fired Alex up! LoL .. Alex actually played a more aggressive version of Art Robinson in his interview with Rachel Maddow in 2010... There's no question that this interview was scripted in advance so I can understand why Alex just talked over Piers.

I second Alex's request that you go back home, Piers, where guns have been confiscated.

Personally, I think CNN's viewers needed to see and hear such views regardless of Alex's delivery.

Nearly unwatchable, I thought

Nearly unwatchable, I thought Larry Pratt did a much better job. Jones did get his link plugged a couple times though, mabe a few people will run a search and learn a couple things....

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

Unwatchable

Wow. I knew Alex wouldn't be bullied by Piers, but this was overkill. I couldn't make it through the first five minutes because I felt Alex came across as a loon. I dig Alex and the work he does but I think he played into the stereotype of the crazed gun nut on Morgan's show. I'd be surprised it sheeple middle America saw that program and thought of Alex as anything but a nutter. I'm afraid his salient points were drowned out by his supercharged demeanor.

Agreed

.

Yeah.... larry did ok

But most people can't tell you who Larry Pratt is. Didn't stop Piers from trashing him though.

I can tell you one thing. Because of this viral interview, a whole heck of a lot more people will know who Alex Jones is, listen what he has to say, and then spend days arguing over it on blogs.

Alex did more to get people thinking in this one 13 min span than Larry Pratt ever did.
