Drudge getting blasted for "promoting" Alex Jones

After Alex Jones Pushed Oklahoma "Weather Weapon" Theory, Drudge Continues To Promote Him
May 22, 2013 11:56 AM EDT ››› OLIVER WILLIS

Less than 24 hours after Alex Jones theorized that a "weather weapon" could have been used to cause the devastating Oklahoma tornado, conservative gossip Matt Drudge returned to his pattern of promoting the conspiracy theorist.

On May 21, Jones told a caller that the government has the ability to "create and steer groups of tornadoes" and that if people spotted helicopters and small aircraft "in and around the clouds, spraying and doing things" in Oklahoma, it could be evidence that a "weather weapon" was used.

Today Drudge prominently links to a story on Jones' website Infowars in the upper left hand corner of his site. The linked story claims that "armed Homeland Security guards" were "policing free speech" by appearing outside an IRS building in St. Louis during a Tea Party protest.

Yeah. Interesting how that works.

When Bush was in office, I was called a left wing extremist.

Now with Obama in office, I'm called a right wing extremist.

Funny thing is, I don't have any wings and I do not think that desiring constitutional government and consistency is extreme.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Word

Yeah I've noticed that too.
