Video: A special message from Ron Paul radio buddy Alex Jones

posted at 10:54 am on August 21, 2007 by Allahpundit

Captain Ed tagged this as the single most moronic, delusional, comically self-aggrandizing moment during last night’s Truther fiesta, so here you go. Preserved for posterity, a man so perniciously stupid that it’s almost worth rooting for Ron Paul just to imagine this turd at the inauguration.

Incidentally, did you know last night’s program was “another biased hit piece that manufactured straw man arguments, ignored key evidence, and afforded debunkers to talk at length while ridiculing any other viewpoints”? Fifty million dozen Prison Planet readers can’t be wrong.

Trust me, Alex. We’re still laughing at you.

Some clowns don’t wear goofy makeup.

These people are mentally retarded. They should seriously seek mental health experts because something is wrong.

I remember him. He sat right next to Jethro Bodine in Ms Zimmer’s class.

Finally I can show my kids someone who’s stupider than me

EricPWJohnson on August 21, 2007 at 11:12 AM

Shouldn’t he be in a straight jacket?

amerpundit on August 21, 2007 at 11:12 AM

These idiots make me so mad. I was yelling at the TV when this idiot was comparing himself to Galileo. Perhaps a more accurate comparison would be Chicken Little.

Kendrick on August 21, 2007 at 11:14 AM

What’s with the KLBJ banner? KLBJ is quite a sane radio station in Austin, and it’s cringeworthy to see their name associated with this nut for posterity.

RushBaby on August 21, 2007 at 11:24 AM

Um, flat vs. round earth? No.

When your theory is more like “hollow earth” theories, it makes sense to try to use Galileo to cover your shortcomings… but it’s not likely to work because that much crazy is gonna seep out regardless of your defense.

gekkobear on August 21, 2007 at 11:28 AM

I actually enjoyed watching that last night. It’s good to see idiocy refuted on the History Channel.

mboprey on August 21, 2007 at 11:29 AM

The earth IS flat.

Talon on August 21, 2007 at 11:30 AM

Heh. This fat, stupid man just compared himself to Galileo.

Jaibones on August 21, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Wait. Wait. I didn’t see the video. Did he actually say this is like flat vs. round earth? At the time of Columbus, most educated people accepted the belief that the earth is round.

amerpundit on August 21, 2007 at 11:31 AM

The psyche of the truthers got my attention. It is all about them and their desire to be seen as the messengers of the highest truth.

csdeven on August 21, 2007 at 11:31 AM

I wonder if Rosie O’Donnell (D) was watching this last night???

ericire12 on August 21, 2007 at 11:32 AM

Oh, he’s talking about Galileo’s time. Yeah. No.

amerpundit on August 21, 2007 at 11:32 AM

can you post the clunkety-clunk lady too? that was a great one as well.

lorien1973 on August 21, 2007 at 11:33 AM

The irony of comparing one’s self to Galileo while simultaneously demonstrating a complete ignorance of Galileo’s discoveries is nothing short of delightful.

Blacklake on August 21, 2007 at 11:34 AM

I’m not entirely certain, but I think I remember Gore using the same analogy for Global Warming. Somebody should tell this guy that just because you compare yourself to one of the greats in history it doesn’t give you any credibility. You know, its kinda like those people that give themselves nicknames.

ericire12 on August 21, 2007 at 11:34 AM

ericire12 on August 21, 2007 at 11:34 AM

It was Bobby Kennedy Jr. who compared Global Warming skeptics to Flat Earthers. The irony being, (and they being too stupid to even know this,) that it was the Flat Earthers who denied any debate on the issue.

foxforce91 on August 21, 2007 at 11:40 AM

Galileo wasn’t in trouble for teaching that the earth is round, but that it orbits the Sun, rather than vice versa.

 

If this doofus can’t even get such basic historical facts right, how can he be believed about more recent history?

The Monster on August 21, 2007 at 11:42 AM

From wikipedia:

“Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642)[1][2] was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher closely associated with the scientific revolution. His achievements include the first systematic studies of uniformly accelerated motion, improvements to the telescope, a variety of astronomical observations, and support for Copernicanism. Galileo’s experiment-based work was a significant break from the abstract Aristotelian approach of his time.

Galileo has been called the “father of modern observational astronomy”,[3] the “father of modern physics”,[4] and the “father of science”.[4] The motion of uniformly accelerated objects, taught in nearly all high school and introductory college physics courses, was studied by Galileo as the subject of kinematics. His contributions to observational astronomy include the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter, named the Galilean moons in his honour, and observations and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, developing a microscope and improving compass design.”

Alex Jones:

“Jones was born in Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas,[1] and grew up in the suburb of Rockwall.[2] He began his career in Austin with a live, call-in format cable access television program. In 1996, Jones switched format to KJFK, hosting a show named The Final Edition.[3] In 1997, he released his first documentary film, America Destroyed By Design[4]

In 1999, he tied with Shannon Burke for that year’s “Best Austin Talk Radio Host” poll as voted by The Austin Chronicle readers.[5] Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM. According to the station’s operations manager Jones was fired because his viewpoints made the show hard to sell to advertisers and he refused to broaden his topics.[3] Jones argued: “It was purely political, and it came down from on high”, and, “I was told 11 weeks ago to lay off Clinton, to lay off all these politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing the Marines, A to Z.” [3]

In 2000, Jones and assistant Mike Hanson infiltrated the Bohemian Grove and filmed the opening weekend ceremony, known as the Cremation of Care, a mock human sacrifice, which he says has Druidic and Pagan backgrounds. His footage can be viewed in his documentary “Dark Secrets Inside Bohemian Grove.” A different – and less conspiratorial – interpretation of the ceremony was reported by the British journalist Jon Ronson in his book Them: Adventures with Extremists and documentary series Secret Rulers of the World.

On July 1, 2002, Jones started the Save The Bill of Rights Campaign to repeal the Patriot Act.[6] Further in 2002, Jones released 9-11: The Road to Tyranny. In 2005, he released another film, Martial Law: 9/11 Rise of the Police State.

On June 8, 2006, while he was on his way to cover a meeting of the Bilderberg group in Ottawa, Jones was stopped and detained at the Ottawa airport by Canadian authorities who confiscated his passport, camera equipment and most of his belongings. He was later released. [7] Jones has appeared in two Richard Linklater movies as an actor: Waking Life (2001) and A Scanner Darkly (2006).”

kinda reminds me of David Koresh comparing himself to Jesus Christ.

He needs to work up to delusions of mediocrity first.

Kowboy on August 21, 2007 at 12:11 PM

What I found interesting was at the end of the show, the Loose Change clowns were trying to rationalize why they were “updating” the new version 3 of the movie. Seems there’s just too many facts to refute the claim that the twin towers were brought down in a controlled demolition. So, they are just going to concentrate on WTC Bldg 7 because they “know” that this building was purposely destroyed in this fashion.
Can’t wait for version 4. By the time they’re done with all their updates the movie will be about 4 airplanes that were hijacked by muslim terrorists and slammed into buildings.

AZ_Mike on August 21, 2007 at 12:19 PM

Born at Parkland Hospital… hmmm… worked at KJFK… hmmm… grew up in Rockwall — just like he’s often found at Lew Rockwell… hmmm… sounds like the whole loser’s life is a conspiracy to me!

Ever since Rosie went away, Truthers have become my favorite idiots.

Thanks for the laugh man. Funniest thing I’ve read all day.

Hootie on August 21, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Since Loose Change 4 is apparently going to focus on WTC 7, I’d just like to repost my little piece of Troofer Kryptonite (aka facts).

This video is from one of their own Troofer websites.

Anyway, if you look at the roofline on the left side of the building, you will see the penthouse on that side collapse into the building about 7 seconds before the rest of the building comes down. This basically kills the controlled demolition theory because it says that because the building fell symnetrically at free fall speed, it must be explosives. Well, the collapse wasn’t symnetrical because it started on the left side first. It also wasn’t free fall because this video proves that the building was collapsing long before the building went into “global collapse.”

Thank you very much, I’ll be here all week.

Talon on August 21, 2007 at 11:30 AM

It is reality and those that dwell within it that is warps giving the illusion of roundness.

Then of course is what Thomas Dolby says.

MirCat on August 21, 2007 at 1:17 PM

I haven’t even finished watching the program yet, but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at how deep the debunking went.

RightWinged on August 21, 2007 at 1:20 PM

I was flipping between this and the Yankees game, but was one of their accusations that the hijackers weren’t really in control of the planes, that the government was actually in control? Did I hear that correctly?

revolutionismyname on August 21, 2007 at 1:46 PM

revolutionismyname on August 21, 2007 at 1:46 PM

Yes, you heard correctly. The hijackers (or alleged government agents) were not flying the airplnes but they actually were being remotely flown by some other sinister government/military official. Probably Dick Cheney himself.

AZ_Mike on August 21, 2007 at 2:13 PM

Yes, you heard correctly. The hijackers (or alleged government agents) were not flying the airplnes but they actually were being remotely flown by some other sinister government/military official. Probably Dick Cheney himself.

Of course, these other government/military officials were probably remotely flying the airplanes from WTC 7 which is obviously why they had to purposely destroy that building with a controlled demolition….to destroy the evidence and keep them from talking.

This is fun just making things up without having to worry about proving it with facts!!

AZ_Mike on August 21, 2007 at 2:18 PM

That depends of course on your definition of IS.

There are actually some Troofers who believe there weren’t even any planes at, that the government used holograms and doctored live media footage to make everyone believe they saw planes. The real funny part is that the Normal truthers think the No Plane truthers are just crazy and they try to suppress their opinions in order to keep them from dishonoring the whole Truth movement.

BohicaTwentyTwo on August 21, 2007 at 3:15 PM

I can’t stand this guy. I am Libertarian and in someways agree with Alex. I also agree with Rothbard that the present financial system the US has will lead to massive hyperinflation. I agree that the Income Tax is tyranny. I think we need to end foreign aid.

…Still this guy is a complete moron.

Tim Burton on August 21, 2007 at 9:02 PM

Did he say he was going to be vindicated or syndicated? I can’t see Westwood One picking his show up.
