Good news: Trutherism gets new celebrity spokesman!

posted at 8:27 pm on February 4, 2008 by Allahpundit

Marginally less relevant than Rosie but certainly more accomplished than Charlie Sheen. Kudos to “Friend of Ron” Alex Jones for landing this very impressive lobotomized celebrity “get.”

Kids, don’t do drugs.

Slublog on February 4, 2008 at 8:28 PM

Willy hasn’t had a clear thought since the late sixties.

NeoconNews.com on February 4, 2008 at 8:29 PM

Good News?

How bout what took so long?

File this under “Duh”.

TheEJS on February 4, 2008 at 8:29 PM

“I saw a building fall (building 7 I’m assuming) that didn’t get hit by nothin’…”

Oh, brother…

JetBoy on February 4, 2008 at 8:30 PM

Whelp, looks like all of my Nelson CD’s are going straight into the trash.

I could live with his leftard politics but trutherism is frankly unforgiveable.

The Ugly American on February 4, 2008 at 8:32 PM

I thought he was dead?

Vizzini on February 4, 2008 at 8:32 PM

Whodathunkit.

He was not stoned enough to be @ ground zero and see it all first hand.

Kids, don’t do drugs.

And sta in skool

UncleOlaf on February 4, 2008 at 8:32 PM

What would suit these people? If the buildings had exploded, we’d hear buildings don’t explode.

Spirit of 1776 on February 4, 2008 at 8:32 PM

Too many drugs for too many years ……

gstrickler on February 4, 2008 at 8:33 PM

Willie looks like a professor of mine. Nice guy to talk with…but totally brainwashed.

CABE on February 4, 2008 at 8:33 PM

He was high, right? Too many bong hits for Big Willie?

Vote Sauron 08 on February 4, 2008 at 8:35 PM

Well, I have to admit it…I was again’ all that truther stuff till ole Willie came along and cleared it all up for me…thankee Wille!

AUINSC on February 4, 2008 at 8:35 PM

I think someone has been getting a little too much pesticide in his weed.

Kowboy on February 4, 2008 at 8:37 PM

Here’s some FAIL for you Willie.

doubleplusundead on February 4, 2008 at 8:37 PM

Maybe he inhaled too many of those pig brains.
I’m sure he sees lots of colors and mirages that none of us see.
Pud.

bbz123 on February 4, 2008 at 8:39 PM

Now, who wants to legalize dope…oh yeah, the Democrats…for more brain-dead citizens like poor Willie.

mksmithwriter on February 4, 2008 at 8:40 PM

Well, we might as well all fold our tents and go home. Ron Paul got the Willy endorsement. Game over. ;-0

In the well-spoken words of Laura Ingraham: “Shut up and sing” or whatever it is that Nelson is doing these days.

highhopes on February 4, 2008 at 8:40 PM

so Willie has seen Endgame…..yet was campaigning for Democrats in 2004 and in the past, who are also in on this conspiracy theory.

jp on February 4, 2008 at 8:42 PM

Awww, darn it. I really DO LIKE WILLIE.

Why can’t they just shut up and sing?

(Sigh)

Dr. Gecko on February 4, 2008 at 8:42 PM

that little voice in your head

For crying out loud, Willie is hearing voices again – almost 7 years after 9/11. Kinda slow in the head ain’t ya hippie?

Larry L. Sharp on February 4, 2008 at 8:42 PM

Willie’s gone green.

davidk on February 4, 2008 at 8:42 PM

This is one of those “Awww….man” kind of moments…

greenonions on February 4, 2008 at 8:44 PM

He has been stoned for so long, he doesn’t know high for low.

In the 70′s I worked in the recording industry and there was a studio I was associated with that he and another old school singer worked in. The story was he would have smoke outs with the other singer to see who would wind up “under the table”. Willie always won.

Long term use does not do brain damage. Yeah, sure.

portlandbob on February 4, 2008 at 8:44 PM

Gee, who’da thunk it. A pothead with crazy thoughts.

Ugly on February 4, 2008 at 8:45 PM

Nooooo! Not Willie!

SouthernDem on February 4, 2008 at 8:47 PM

Now Willie has lost his mind,I actually thought Willie
was more of an American gung-ho type,now it seems hes
getting on the bandwagon to Moonbatsville,oh on a side
note I hear crickets chirping on Al gores Global warming,
there seems to be less of a panic now!Haha

canopfor on February 4, 2008 at 8:48 PM

Willie did not know he had a drug problem until he was clean for a day.

Wade on February 4, 2008 at 8:49 PM

Crazy…I’m crazy for lyin’ and crazy for tryin’, and crazy for believin’ it’s true…

see-dubya on February 4, 2008 at 8:50 PM

I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again.

Well-Armed Lamb on February 4, 2008 at 8:51 PM

His logic is very medieval -

In the middle ages, before real science came along, people made logical connections based on sympathy: i.e Fevers are Hot. Don’t eat Hot foods lest you incur a Fever. Sympathetic associations played an important role in the nascent sciences of the day, but these days only morons (or Wiccans) still believe in that kind of crap.

Willie’s logic of “I seen a controlled demolition in Vegas that done looked just like the Towers coming down” is the exact same kind of idiot logic people in the middle ages subscribed to.

In short, Willie’s kind of dumb.

Mindcrime on February 4, 2008 at 8:51 PM

Well, Willie said it, ‘how naive can you get’? About as naive as you, Willie. Next he’ll be doing charity concerts for muslims. Any credence he did have with me is gone now. What a mope! Go back to avoidin’ income taxes, and bad mouthin’ the IRS Will. You were better at that!

countywolf on February 4, 2008 at 8:52 PM

“How naive are we?” Apparently very.

calbear on February 4, 2008 at 8:53 PM

Now Willie has lost his mind,I actually thought Willie was more of an American gung-ho type

Dude, I’m not picking on you, but I assume you know that he very ACTIVELY campaigned for Jimmah Carter and totally supports him to this day, don’t you?

AUINSC on February 4, 2008 at 8:53 PM

Yeah, next summer he will organize a Truth Aid concert!

portlandbob on February 4, 2008 at 8:54 PM

I didn’t realize that those plastinated corpses were so…’life-like.’

My collie says:

Yeah, but he still can’t sing worth beans.

CyberCipher on February 4, 2008 at 8:55 PM

Willie did not know he had a drug problem until he was clean for a day.

Wade on February 4, 2008 at 8:49 PM

Yeah, Nov. 7, 1959.

mksmithwriter on February 4, 2008 at 8:56 PM

Awww, darn it. I really DO LIKE WILLIE.

Why can’t they just shut up and sing?

(Sigh)

Dr. Gecko on February 4, 2008 at 8:42 PM

Dude, everyone has a right to free speech. Even pot-smokin’ criminals.

Dude.

mksmithwriter on February 4, 2008 at 8:58 PM

Nancy Reagan was right.

SouthernGent on February 4, 2008 at 8:59 PM

Weed in moderation is not a bad thing, but there is a reason they call them recreational drugs. They are for having a little fun like drinking, they are not supposed to be a lifestyle.

deadbackpacker on February 4, 2008 at 9:00 PM

What a complete idiot buffoon!

Winebabe on February 4, 2008 at 9:03 PM

On the pipe again…just can’t wait to get on the pipe again……

Kid from Brooklyn on February 4, 2008 at 9:04 PM

In the middle ages, before real science came along, people made logical connections based on sympathy: i.e Fevers are Hot. Don’t eat Hot foods lest you incur a Fever. Sympathetic associations played an important role in the nascent sciences of the day, but these days only morons (or Wiccans) still believe in that kind of crap.

You mean eating Polish won’t uh, I uh, never mind.

davidk on February 4, 2008 at 9:05 PM

Did anyone expect any less of this nut? Wasn’t he a Kucinich man? He also was up here campaigning with Bernie Sanders (who was a Congressman, and was running for Senate, and won), the only self-proclaimed socialist elected to the federal government.

RightWinged on February 4, 2008 at 9:07 PM

No one actually thought this man was Einstein 2.0, did they?

amerpundit on February 4, 2008 at 9:09 PM

Don’t take the Brown Acid or a paper with the Egyptian eyeballs, BAD STUFF DUDE!

Chakra Hammer on February 4, 2008 at 9:10 PM

Willie says: “Booosh did it now who’s got the pipe?”

oldernslower on February 4, 2008 at 9:11 PM

No disappointment. Willie was always a fraud to me anyway. A hollywood discovery, he went from a C level artist to a legend in about 5 years all based on hollywood loving him.

peacenprosperity on February 4, 2008 at 9:15 PM

Remember the little fruit crying on jesse jackson’s shoulder at Ray Charles funeral.

peacenprosperity on February 4, 2008 at 9:16 PM

Your brain on weed: Willie Nelson

We’ve known it for decades of course, but damn if i don’t luv his songs and singing…even the fact he does not have a voice for singing.

oldernslower on February 4, 2008 at 9:17 PM

The Red Headed Stranger is still one of the best albums around, but please, Willie, stay out of politics. Don’t become an honorary member of the Dixie Chicks.

BowHuntingTexas on February 4, 2008 at 9:18 PM

Count me in as one of the disappointed. I’ve been listening to Willie since the seventies and been to three of his concerts. I’ve even got selections from Red Headed Stranger and the Honeysuckle Rose soundtrack on my ipod. I could live with his far left idiocy because I knew he was an old hippie, but trutherism really is a bridge too far. Damn.

Dudley Smith on February 4, 2008 at 9:32 PM

He could stay on pitch. There’s that.

a capella on February 4, 2008 at 9:34 PM

Could Willie be the tipping point?

BL@KBIRD on February 4, 2008 at 9:39 PM

Blame it on paraquat.

hillbillyjim on February 4, 2008 at 9:40 PM

This guy is a piece of crap. I am sure the families of the 9/11 victims love hearing this garbage.

echosyst on February 4, 2008 at 9:45 PM

Willie, step away from the bong!

MITX on February 4, 2008 at 9:46 PM

Proof once again that Weed kills brain cells!

azcop on February 4, 2008 at 9:48 PM

Well, that settles it for me. And to think I was listening to the findings of engineers, who knew that the temperature needed to melt steel had been greatly exceeded by the explosion of hundreds of gallons of jet fuel. I could have ignored their mind-numbing evaluation, in favor of some guy who used the few brain cells leftover from years of drug use to write some great country songs.

“How naive can we be?” Do tell us, Willie.

manwithblackhat on February 4, 2008 at 10:09 PM

Now ain’t that a b*tch. I’ll never be able to listen to “Georgia On My Mind” the same way again.

Frickin’ idiot

Tim Zank on February 4, 2008 at 10:14 PM

REGISTRATION IS OPEN AT LGF

RushBaby on February 4, 2008 at 10:21 PM

Oh god, no not Willie! Oh well, he is supposed to have the good weed.

conservnut on February 4, 2008 at 10:22 PM

Oh Willie! You are so symmetrical! Implosions are awesome, aren’t they?

Can’t go along with an airplane hitting the building? Nahhh…I was stoned that day too. Never happened! I hate to say it, but its must be true!

C’mon stoners….we must STOP all elites from imploding the buildings in Las Vegas and New York! Otherwise…..Willie’s head might implode as well!

Oh the AGONY!!!

SouthernPride on February 4, 2008 at 10:46 PM

This is your brain on pot and Jack D.

TheSitRep on February 4, 2008 at 10:58 PM

In the well-spoken words of Laura Ingraham: “Shut up and sing” or whatever it is that Nelson is doing these days.

highhopes on February 4, 2008 at 8:40 PM

Puff, puff, pass isn’t it?

91Veteran on February 4, 2008 at 11:06 PM

I think he swallowed the bong water and the pipe.

Claypigeon on February 4, 2008 at 11:22 PM

It isn’t the weed man, he’s been smoking the mushrooms.

Kini on February 4, 2008 at 11:26 PM

Guy gives decent pot smokers a bad name.

Jaibones on February 4, 2008 at 11:38 PM

I guess it’s too late to losen the braids and the bandana Willie..but do it anyhow…save what’s left.

hotvol on February 4, 2008 at 11:50 PM

This is what Willie’s tax dollars are going for!

d1carter on February 4, 2008 at 11:51 PM

Well, that settles it for me. And to think I was listening to the findings of engineers, who knew that the temperature needed to melt steel had been greatly exceeded by the explosion of hundreds of gallons of jet fuel.

“How naive can we be?” Do tell us, Willie.

manwithblackhat on February 4, 2008

You should have known better. It is common knowledge that people who can write catchy little country tunes are also experts in the physics of thermal conductivity.

greekinfidel on February 5, 2008 at 12:00 AM

I’m surprised that people are surprised by Willie Nelson’s rank idiocy? He has always been far left….I also enjoy some of his music and always will but the man is an idiot otherwise!

Sadly, this is par for the course for 95 percent of the entertainers out there…

Albertanator on February 5, 2008 at 12:02 AM

for landing this very impressive lobotomized celebrity “get.”

Heh, for one thing I’ve never been impressed with Willie, he’s a hack that can’t sing and always looks like he needs a bath so it’s no big loss for me as he’s been on my SH*T list for some time now!

Don’t go away mad Willie, just go away and stop singing for goodness sake, you’re making my dogs ears bleed!

Liberty or Death on February 5, 2008 at 12:14 AM

Hahaha…Alex Jones said in the interview to Willie “did you hear those little voices in your head?” I’d say Willie, Alex, and many others hear lots of little voices in their heads and probably answer them too…scary moonbats for sure!

Liberty or Death on February 5, 2008 at 12:17 AM

I interviewed Willie in about 1980. By the time I got off his bus, it looked a Cheech and Chong movie when the door opened. Real. Good. Weed.

FishFearMe on February 5, 2008 at 12:18 AM

Hippie

- The Cat

MirCat on February 5, 2008 at 12:22 AM

I like Willie’s music–especially when he sings with other musicians of note. He is, for better or worse, an icon of our American culture.

But dang Willie, lay off the weed!

Montana on February 5, 2008 at 12:24 AM

No disappointment. Willie was always a fraud to me anyway. A hollywood discovery, he went from a C level artist to a legend in about 5 years all based on hollywood loving him.

peacenprosperity on February 4, 2008 at 9:15 PM

Utter BS. C level? The man is a genius. Obviously a mad genius, but still…First Merle Haggard, now this.

Barntender on February 5, 2008 at 12:34 AM

Sorry but crazy-willy’s music has always sucked… He’s been hyped more than the freakin’ Stones. Julio and Willie? check please… On the road again, *audible Yawn*.

Willy = Suck, period.

Claypigeon on February 5, 2008 at 1:08 AM

Awww! I like much of his stuff. Well, maybe my musical taste sucks, but it’s my taste and I like it!

Sure as hell is better than Rap music though.

Montana on February 5, 2008 at 1:12 AM

I’ve heard this song before. I’m guessing that Willie is doing the Cover Version for an upcoming album?

Snake307 on February 5, 2008 at 1:41 AM

Brains can melt, like steel?

A half-Nelson, mentally.

Or just sing: “CRAZY“.

profitsbeard on February 5, 2008 at 1:52 AM

Dude,I’m not picking on you…

AUINSC on February 4,2008 at 8:53PM.

AUINSC: No problem,pick away,I just thought he was more
of a Patriot,and no I didn’t know he voted for
the peanut farmer Carter.If you hear a thump,
thats me kicking my a$$,Hehe.

canopfor on February 5, 2008 at 2:14 AM

Can you believe it, Willie gets a pass from me. Clearly he is looney on this stuff, but hey, 40 years of smoking dope every day will beat the crap out of the best of us.

Willie is one of greatest song writers America has ever produced and I guess that when G_d gives you that kind of talent, he pretty much takes everything else in your brain away from you.

georgealbert on February 5, 2008 at 4:04 AM

He always sounds like he’s singing through his nose.

Kini on February 5, 2008 at 5:18 AM

This is what Willie’s tax dollars are going for!

Willie has not paid taxes in years…that’s why the Feds own his ass.

DoctorDentons on February 5, 2008 at 6:30 AM

The man is a genius. Obviously a mad genius

He was Waylon’s wierd friend until hollywood “discovered” him in about 1974. Canned music, that’s all he is.

peacenprosperity on February 5, 2008 at 6:45 AM

Shut up and sing, Willy. Your inner moron is showing.

Gartrip on February 5, 2008 at 7:33 AM

I was always pretty indifferent to Willie Nelson… Until he played a marijuana-smoking Uncle Jesse. This is just a confirmation of why he deserves no respect.

q2600 on February 5, 2008 at 9:02 AM

Mama don’t let your babies grow up to be truthers.
Don’t let ‘em smoke doobies and eat Twinkie cakes
Make ‘em watch Reefer Madness and Scared Straight
Mama don’t let your babies grow up to be truthers
They’ll never make sense and they’re always too dense
Even when someone proves them wrong.

Sensei Ern on February 5, 2008 at 9:05 AM

No, no! Not Willie!

budorob on February 5, 2008 at 9:13 AM

Willie supported Perot in 1992, and wrote a song for Kucinich in 2004. Guess he’s a Paulestinian now.

Damian P. on February 5, 2008 at 9:25 AM

Physics overrules the psychic and in the study of language, there is only one thing that that separate liberal from liable. That is (R) for reality.

MSGTAS on February 5, 2008 at 9:25 AM

Of course Willie Nelson likes Ron Paul. Which other candidate is promising to abolish the IRS?

Jim Treacher on February 5, 2008 at 9:49 AM

DOCUMENTED PROOF that “Trutherism” is just a new name for a bad acid trip!!!

landlines on February 5, 2008 at 10:54 AM

Crap, I liked Willie too.

Geronimo on February 5, 2008 at 11:48 AM

I thought he was dead?

Vizzini on February 4, 2008 at 8:32 PM

That’s his career you were thinking of.

oakpack on February 5, 2008 at 3:11 PM

Do these celebs have a clue as to how their spoken political stupidity effects their careers? Either way…either side, you offend half your fans. It’s ignorance or arrogance … maybe both.

I used to like Willie. I didn’t know he was totally stupid. I guess that when the planes hit it was supposed to look like a Hollywood production, like a tactical nuke going off or something.

Ernest on February 5, 2008 at 3:53 PM
