Alex Jones, Rand Paul, Ben Swann, Adam Kokesh, and John Birch, to name a few are all shills?Submitted by printersguy2 on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 10:23
If I'm to believe the multitude of posts I've been seeing on Youtube, Daily Paul, and every frankly every liberty blog out there, then all these guys are co-lintel neocon CIA double agents working for Israel. Never mind the good they've done. Never mind the issues they've brought to the forefront. Never mind the multitude of people they've collectively woken up. Never mind how they've promoted the ideas of liberty and helped bring it into the mainstream consciousness. No, they have to be shills because some post on a random website said so. And of course now that there are a plethora of such posts on random websites that drives it home that it must be true. Now that some of your friends are doubtful it must be true. We have been had. We should just all forget about it, disband, and go home to watch some baseball and Dancing with the Stars. You can't trust anyone anyhow so why try.
Pardon me for my sarcastic rant but I am wholly sick of this obvious tactic of "Divide the conspiracy people and the liberty people by feeding on their lack of trust". It's not that I ever trust anyone completely. How can you? But, I can accept the good that people do and give them the benefit of the doubt until they no longer deserve it.
If Alex Jones is waking people up to the issues of our day and the hope of returning to a nation of liberty, then take the good he's doing and hope he is able to do some more. If he makes mistakes on occasion as all humans do, determine for yourself if those mistakes are major or minor in the grand scheme of things. But don't let some random post on some random blog divide and conquer our united resolve to fight for freedom.
What people attempt and what they accomplish says more about their credibility than any unproven accusation toward them.
