Alex please calm down so your argument is taken seriously!
By Dark Politricks
It was a heated debate, on one side at least, that has been re-shown over and over with Alex Jones being mocked and cast as a raving loon preparing for President Obama’s metamorphosis into the next Hitler. Ready to disarm the US population and then send them all off to FEMA concentration camps.
The debate (or clips of Alex ranting during it) have been repeated constantly from left to right wing blogs, mainstream news programs and satirical comedy shows like the Daily Show.
The question being asked is: Did Alex Jones do more harm than good by going off on one of his manic rants at Piers Morgan. If so did that rant take away any legitimacy that his side of the argument may have had and go over the heads of watchers of the program?
Alex tried his usual tactic of claiming to have facts on everything from A to Z to back up every counter point that Piers brought up, waving bits of paper in the air and reeling off names so fast most uneducated people wouldn’t have kept up with his fast paced arguments.
He had far too many facts to debate the merits of in such a short period of time on TV.
Therefore the viewers probably didn’t take many, if any of them, in at all. Many probably went away from the interview with the perception that Alex Jones was crazy for going off on one on Piers who remained calm and seemingly sane throughout the interview. This should not have been the aim of any debating tactic when discussing the merits of such a serious issue as gun control and the 2nd Amendment.
Even worse – did Alex make Piers Morgan, a liar who’s testimony at the Leveson Inquiry about Press Standards and phone hacking has been called “utterly unpersuasive.” by the Judge himself, seem like an honest, sensible and well balanced person in comparison to his loud, aggresive self?
I used to listen to the Alex Jones radio show over the web and on pod-casts until I got so fed up with hearing the same adverts about survival food stocks over and over again that it just became a pointless exercise in hurting my ears with advertising.
I have seen and heard the rants.
I have seen the madness when Alex gets passionate about a topic and seemingly loses control.
However I have also read many of the articles he claims proves his side of the story. I have read the often unhead of history and explored the evidence he constantly claims to have to back up his sometimes “heated” debates.
He is not always right but he is most definitely not always wrong.
On many issues he has valid points which are lost in translation because of his tactic of delivering them in such a heated manner. All the other person within the debate has to do is stay calm and quiet and he will come off looking like the sensible one whether or not Alex is 100% correct about everything he says.
It is a well know hard task to achieve but people need to look past any first impressions they get from Alex Jones and do the research for themselves in relation to anything he says.
Remember no one should make up your own mind but yourself.
That includes Alex, especially Piers and of course anyone else within the mainstream media. Only you can make your own mind up after reading a balanced view of history and you should always keep in mind that history is usually written by the winners and that conspiracies do and continue to be carried out by powerful people – despite what people might claim. They will continue into the future and have existed since the beginning of time.
In fact conspiracy charges are dished out all the time in the USA/UK to people by the authorities. I myself have been on the wrong end of one. It just means that more than one person colluded together to commit a criminal offence and if you consider either the Iraq war, 9.11 or the Lavon Affair criminal offences then they are all also to be considered conspiracies.
Whether you believe the official conspiracy theory or an alternative one all three events involved more than one person colluding together to commit serious crimes and therefore can be considered conspiratorial in nature.
If only Alex could practise some form of Yoga or meditation to calm himself down before going onto the mainstream media he would pass himself off a whole lot better.
It is not good to be ripped apart on satire shows as he was on the recent Daily Show where he was being portrayed as just a right wing crazy nut job who thinks Obama is the new Hitler ready to come for your guns.
The problem with Alex and his argument over gun control is two fold.
1. Alex Jones does actually have facts and evidence coming out of his behind.
The problem is he has way too many of them and whether you believe these facts or not he doesn’t put them over in a way that people will understand everything he is trying to say. Waving papers about in front of the opponents face proves nothing.
He would have done much better during his interview with Piers to stick to the single salient point that the UK, a country where the population has no guns (apart from a few farmers), does actually have a higher violent crime rate than the USA a country filled to the brim with guns.
This was proven in a recent study that said:
Britain has a higher crime rate than any other rich nation except Australia, according to a survey yesterday and the chances of having your car stolen are greater in England and Wales than anywhere else in the developed world.
According to the figures released in the report yesterday, 3.6 per cent of the population of England and Wales were victims of violent crime in 1999 – second only to Australia, where the figure was 4.1 per cent. However in the USA only 2 per cent of the population suffered an assault or robbery.
Also one out of every 40 people in England and Wales had their cars stolen in 1999, the highest rate in the 17 developed countries examined.
2. More importantly Alex needs to chill out before going on TV so that he cannot later be portrayed as crazy loon on satirical shows like the Daily Show.
When you are already being shown in clips along with FOX TV presenters, Republican Tea Baggers and nutters who believe everything they see on TV without investigating both sides of the issue first then you have already lost the argument before you have even opened your mouth.
Alex, take a Valium, no in fact take a 100. Just do what you have to do so that you remain calm in the face of your enemy and don’t explode in anger declaring another war of independence like you did with Piers on CNN.
It’s actions like this, which when shouted in anger, will be shown over and over again on YouTube and across the MSM. That are used by your detractors to repeatedly “prove” you are nothing more than a nutter with a loud mouth no matter how much substance or logic your argument has at it’s core.
Whether you are on either side of the gun control argument you should read up about the facts first before making your OWN minds up.
And if you are going on TV – just take a chill pill first and don’t overload the audience with facts.
Stick to one or two proven facts and debate them calmly and honestly. Then you can walk away knowing that you won’t be derided from state to state for just being the bloke who wants to deport the known liar and phone hacker Piers Morgan and start a new revolution.
