Alex Jones, Traitor or Imbecile?

UPDATE: I was wrong. I was overly harsh. I was casting stones without having all the information, something I'm vehemently opposed to. I apologize. (see http://www.dailypaul.com/269611/i-was-wrong-and-im-sorry)

My letter to Alex:

You are ridiculous. I can't believe what you just pulled on Piers. Whose side are you on? I'm seriously damn near convinced you're on the globalists' side. You bastard! Do you know how hard you set us back?! That was a FUCKING DISASTER. You displayed less debate skills than Bill O'Reilly and Piers Morgans' lovechild! You are either a profound idiot or an establishment tool, and I will never support you again.

Update (old): I stand by my feelings about Alex's performance. He sunk to the level of Piers and I fail to see how any of you think that's ok. But I am getting trolled out of my mind here. It's driving me nuts. I spend too much of my life working for liberty, to sit here and take shit from people who claim to support it while they fling ad hominems and other personal insults at me and ignore my primary point (that this will not be received well, and it won't, that's just obvious). I've blocked Danton because after numerous insults and absurd attacks and very little in the way of actual substance, he accused me of claiming to be a "savior" and that is crossing the line. This whole experience has me considering just giving up on liberty and trying to live out my life away from people as much as possible. We really are a piece of shit race. I'm done here. Good riddance.

I haven't read his

I haven't read his infomercial books, and I sure never will, judging his criminal past including his larceny and credit card fraud convictions.

oh, and I agree with most everything Mike Adams says about

Liberty

is a mouth of many teeth. You may be a molar, others are canine's or even wisdom teeth. I accept all the teeth in my mouth as necessary and I am way to old for braces, so will take care of the teeth I have. Even the least pretty one.

wow..

Can we have some more of that please?

I try to change people every day. Do You?

the question could be asked of every one of *us*--

people on DP have asked it about:

Ron Paul
Rand Paul
Daily Paul
1988vote
Alex Jones
People who question the official 9/11 story

Are *we* traitors or imbecile? Are *we* lunatics or liberty-defenders?

Maybe the question will only be answered in 100 years. Maybe sooner.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Bad delivery

The message was correct. The delivery set the liberty movement back. This was totally unprofessional, I was embarressed to watch the reverse roll playing that Piers usaually displays on his liberty guest. What's good for the goose is not always good for the gander. RP would have handled this much better.

dave anderson

Just my opinion but I think the time for manners has passed

No telling what these @ssholes will do to this country if we let them. Tired of the patronizing liberal "government uber alles" attitude, time to give it back in spades with some liberty attitude.

If liberty is a mouth full of sharp teeth (as another poster mentioned above), than it must be opened and ready to bite when needed. AJ opened his mouth. This is what liberty looks like when it is provoked. At least in it's verbal form.

I know we've gotten quite used to Ron Paul's humble, learned and patient approach, and it worked great for him as a man of principle, but sadly I think that clock ran out.

Time will tell what AJ wrought last night. I hope we're all better for it and CNN is shooting themselves in the foot.

What will the history books say?

I think they may say that AJ fired the warning shot heard round our country. I don't know about you...but I am pissed off. I feel like I am going to come unhinged at least once a week over something our government or corporate rulers do. Jones gave me a voice on that show that night. He said things that no one in media EVER says. I have never been a fan of his but I am now. His delivery wasn't what we are used to but IMHO was exactly what the American people needed.

^This. I know Alex was pissed

^This. I know Alex was pissed but he could have sounded strong and firm without the shouting (example: Jesse Ventura). Either way the man is trending on twitter.

Tired

I've been in this for many years, and I have heard this same stuff go around and around about everyone.

Tired of this.

retreating

Seems to me there is something to be gained by retreating, less you would not have retreated.

Piers Morgan did to Larry Pratt what Alex did to Piers

Larry Pratt was constantly interrupted, called 'incredibly stupid' among many other things when he appeared on Piers' show.

Alex just dished it back.

And all you haters---what did you expect from Alex Jones? You've seen him on The View, heard his rants---did you really think he was going to play nice and be calm? Especially with a sniveling POS like Morgan?

Anti-gunners will NEVER change their opinion. Those on the fence need to see EVERYONE that is pro-gun, regardless of their delivery.

Pratt is calm. Alex is not. They both want liberty. Get over their personalities.

cnn prepared

i agree with you 100 percent , watch the Larry pratt interview everyone

they learned from that interview and used the same technique that made pratt look good and used it for piers,

notice throughout the interview , alex is figdety (probably from all of the cops/thugs he was surrounded by in NYcity) and piers arms were crossed in a non-aggressive fashion, not the typical piers morgan huh ,

this was either contribed by cnn and jones or it was real and piers on-purposedly sat there and took abuse from jones to make jones come off as a nut.

jones would've done a greater service if he stuck to the gun topic but he knows that will be his last time ever to be invited to CNN so he let loose and was amped up to do so.

AT LEAST HE GOT THE FACT OUT THERE THAT VIOLENT CRIME IS LESS IN A MORE POPULOUS AMERICA THAN ANYWHERE FUCKING ELSE!!!!!!

2ND AMENDMENT IS ABOUT SAFETY FOR ALL.

NOW IF ONLY MORE PEOPLE GOT INTERESTED IN BEING SAFE AND LEARN TO SHOOT.

Alex Jones!

Although Alex Jones delivery was horrible, he made some great points. I would rather not have him as the mouthpiece for the Liberty Movement but I guarantee he provoked a lot of thought amongst those watching.

Don't leave the Daily Paul

But if that's what you want, that's up to you. I personally thought Alex did a bad job too but no reason to give up.

Let's do the math...

-26 = ?

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

telfire. you are

telfire. you are ridiculous....

Totally agree with you about

Totally agree with you about Jones. I just hope you don't leave the DP. We could use all the level heads we can get around here.

Blessings )o(

I'm confused...

For those who are so weak-kneed and distraught over being embarrassed about someone confidently and loudly laying down the law and taking control of the conversation, what country do you live in???

This is the USA! The nation of John Wayne, pro-wrestling, movies full of heroes with swagger setting things right by punching people and blowing things up! Why would they not like AJ?

I bet his ratings and audience doubles because of this. There is a veritable army of men (and women) out there who are tired of being pushed around and being afraid to speak their mind and what they believe is truth. And they are under economic pressure and increasingly filled with fear about the future and the way things are going.

This isn't France... :p

The enemies of Liberty are NEVER GOING TO LIKE US. They have declared war on our liberty! The time for pleasantries and worrying about them calling us names is over...

Alex Jones vs Jesse Ventura

I agree with everything Alex Jones said but its the way he said it. The average CNN viewer isn't going to have their mind changed by Alex, instead it will just make them stand behind Piers even more.

A great example of how to debate Piers or any other mouthpiece on television is to see how Jesse Ventura handles it. He has nearly the same view as Alex Jones, but comes across as well thought out and smart as opposed to knee-jerk crazy.

liberty lover in Nor Cal!

CNN audience doesn't matter

Yesterday this video on YouTube had 1.5mil views. Today it has over 3.5mil! He is reaching an audience far outside of CNN.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyKofFih8Y

CNN made everything AJ did and said look and sound off.

The pre-interview intro, the sound, camera angles, the lighting.

Is the you tube identical to the live broadcast. Did all the markets get the same broadcast?

Remember Hoaxing is Pier's specialty.

Compare the pretty boy shots and close-up with those for AJ.

Free includes debt-free!

I will say...

This was one of my first thoughts after the interview. AJ had a lot of good information to get out, but he is a very serious/intense person. For those who don't know him, they may just write him off. It's already on the front page of yahoo, discussing AJ's "Melt-down." I genuinely think that Piers studied AJ before the show, and played the interview to shape himself as the civilized and "reasonable" one.

That's one thing I like about Ventura. He has some of the intelligence of Paul, and some of the in-your-face of AJ; and he mixes them just right. When he was on Piers and asked everyone to raise their hand who agreed with him, you could tell the audience was going to gain more from Ventura's statements. It also got under Piers' skin a lot more than AJ's interview did.

Alex Jones needs to be deported from the dailyPAUL

You are spot on with this thread. Don't let the brainwashed sheeple make you second guess yourself. Alex Jones is a loon and what little respect I had for the guy went out the window. What an embarrassment. Ironic just how blind his followers are to the train wreck that was this interview.

funny nhow you and the writer

funny nhow you and the writer of this ridiculous post joined the daily paul at about the same time. So tell us what agency do you work
for?

jones is good

on most fronts, but when it comes to the jewish/israeli lobby he is silent because he knows the zionist will erase his ass if he speaks to harshly of them, thats why he mainly stay away from iran issues and when he does talk about them he brings up the wiping off the map phrase , same as being an anti-semite , utter bs , but jones is waking more and more up everyday ! at least people can be partially awake right.
