Alex Jones is Still a Jackass

I started out to write an article about an ominous attack on Second Amendment rights which took place here in Austin recently, but on viewing videos of the subsequent protest at city hall as part of my research I got sidetracked with more overwhelming evidence that Alex Jones is a narcissistic douchebag and really no friend of liberty, facts which I have observed before but which just become clearer with each new incident.

Earnest and passionate local advocates for individual liberty led by John Bush of Texans for Accountable Government organized a peaceful protest rally on Monday afternoon in opposition to the Austin Police Department’s involvement with the BATF in attempts to illegally shut down private gun sales at gun shows in Austin. They had a good turnout and a schedule of speakers including Darwin Bedecker, who was the most recent target of this persecution campaign, and notable local liberty advocates like Jerri Lynn Ward and Catherine Bleish. It was organized on short notice, but it was a well-planned and effective rally presenting a legitimate grievance to the city government with a permit and everything.

Then, in the middle of it all, Alex Jones shows up with a bullhorn and what can only be described as a gang of thugs, and proceeds to disrupt the entire rally, shouting over the speakers, shutting down the program, and ultimately driving off most of the participants with his obnoxious antics. Not only that, but Jones was rude to everyone, including those who tried to invite him to become a program participant, called Catherine Bleish a “cointelpro” agent provocateur and ranted on and on about the NWO and various issues completely unrelated to the purpose of the protest, while surrounded by his personal videographers and thuglike followers.

Apparently Jones is incapable of allowing a protest to go on where he isn’t the center of attention, and in order to get that attention he is willing to undermine the effectiveness of the protest, offend potential sympathizers and generally behave like a penis with legs. It’s not surprising that by the end of the event people were accusing Jones of working for the statists to discredit legitimate protesters, and a lot of people came away from the event cured of any prior attraction to Jones’ particular brand of anti-government paranoia. As I’ve said before, Jones is his own worst enemy and he lost a lot of supporters Monday because of his boorish behavior and an attitude which was widely described as “divisive.”

Jones clearly has Narcissistic Personality Disorder and has all the earmarks of a little Hitler in the making and that type doesn’t like to be left on the sidelines. He has the “rule or ruin” attitude where if he’s not in charge and doesn’t have all eyes focused on him then he will cause chaos and destruction and to hell with everyone else and the important issue which they may have been protesting. For Jones the cause of liberty and the truth are secondary. His goal is self-promotion and probably personal profit as well. Jones can’t just cover a story or add his voice to protesting an issue, because he has to be the story and he has to define the protest or it is of no value to him.

    Aw, poor baby. A loudmouthed media hound ruined the demonstration of the righteous. Tut tut. He should be slapped!

    Jones may stink like a skunk – and in this article, he does. But he calls an awful lot of things accurately – sometimes long before they happen. And he knows who to ask, as well.

    Boy oh boy.

    I can’t wait for Pablo to get hold of this article. It’s a direct attack on his idol.

    Let the fireworks begin!

  • Baronius

    I still think that Alex Jones and Rachel Maddow are figments of BC writers’ imaginations.

  • Knute Sakk

    Alex Jones has the popularity and weight to do such stunts and he does it on our behalf, the crybabys who are whining in these videos cannot express their opinions any better than Mr. Jones, and Mr. Jones still does it better than them. Not only that but Mr. Jones was the one person who had Darwin on his show and made thousands of people aware of what was going on. Face it, Alex can reach a lot more people than some disgruntled zit faced college kid any day of the week. You don’t have to like Alex, but know that he is defending your freedoms the only way he knows how. And for people who claim he was trying to instigate violence, you obviously do not listen to Alex as he is opposed to such strategy less it be a last resort.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Dave –

    Jones clearly has Narcissistic Personality Disorder and has all the earmarks of a little Hitler in the making and that type doesn’t like to be left on the sidelines.

    Wasn’t it YOU who castigated me for breaking “Godwin’s Law”? Yes, it was, even though in my article I specifically said that I was not comparing the Republicans to the Nazis. After your efforts to show me just how wrong I was, I told you in that thread that your accusation against me would come back to haunt you.

    See, that’s the thing about telling other people how wrong they are for doing this or that…because when YOU wind up doing that very same ‘this or that’, it makes you look like a hypocrite, and it shows the person you attacked that you really didn’t give a tinker’s damn about “Godwin’s Law” – you just wanted to shut him up.

    This is further exacerbated by you referring to the Obama Administration as treasonous saboteurs, accusing them of deliberately sabotaging the American economy…never mind that you had not the least shred of proof to support your accusation. And when this was pointed out to you, did you give that tinker’s damn that your accusations were completely groundless? No, you didn’t.

    Worst of all, you apparently don’t see what’s wrong with what you did. That, sir, is what SHOULD concern you most of all.

    About twelve years ago a guy who worked for me DID have Narcissistic Personality Disorder. One of the symptoms was his tendency to accuse others of anything – anything at all – that would get them out of his way…but he would see absolutely nothing wrong about doing exactly what he was accusing the others of doing. This particular symptom is often indicative of other disorders too – but he did have NAD.

    Do you have NAD? No, I doubt it – for those who do have it tend to be highly charismatic. But you have certainly shown a tendency to castigate others for something you do yourself. That should concern you greatly.

    I should also add that it is funny that the person who wrote this article can openly call Alex a ‘douchebag’ but per this site ‘Personal attacks are not allowed’ Remember friend, “when we sling mud, we lose ground”.

    From comment #6, it’s finally clear. Glenn’s only real problem with Dave Nalle is

    wait for it

    hang in there…

    here it comes;

    Yes folks, you guessed it! It’s Dave himself! Not ideology, not principle, nor Dem versus Rep — nope Glenn just can’t abide Dave Nalle — period.

  • Clavos the Impaler

    Knute Sakk (cute handle),

    As doc pointed out, the no personal attacks policy is directed at preventing attacks on other commenters or authors, not public figures.

    Public figures are fair game, which is only right, since most of ‘em are, in fact, douche bags.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    Well, Dave has become the personification of all those vices – hence, a ready-made target.

    And since most of them are douche bags, it’s no longer an insulting term. In fact, it’s quite mellow.

  • jlailman

    Alex Jones may be a bit obnoxious but let’s face it, he IS THE MAN when it comes to fighting the NWO wherever they show themselves. Also, the only reason 90% of those people who showed up for the rally were there because of Alex Jones. Get a clue…Alex is the leader and you are an inkspot on my tie.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    I thought it was a pin-stripe suite.

  • Knute Sakk

    Would you like me to start attacking people on this site with hate speech? I’d be more than happy to sink to that level. But if we stick to the article and what it’s author conveys, the truth remains clear. No-Name Smith will not have his opinion voiced, but someone with popularity like Alex will. When it comes down to it, Alex was in the right for standing up against this unconstitutional tyranny. The author of this article has little to argue with that. If you want to resort to name-calling start with Clinton, then Bush, then Obama, and how gun laws have been treated with those administrations respectively. Quite frankly I am a gun owner, registered federally because I live in a state that requires it, it is a non issue for now, however; the moment that someone asks me to give it up [my guns] they have another problem on their hands. Utilize your 2nd amendment right because that is your #1 defense against tyranny, if you refuse then the bread line was made for you. But ask yourself this; where did the bread come from, is there enough bread for everyone, and what rights must you concede to get that bread? Again Alex is in the right, fighting for your rights, if you don’t believe me then start looking at FEMA, the shadow government, and GMO foods. The average American’s best interest is not at heart. Look up eugenics, the Georgia Guidestones, or ‘Whatsonmyfood’.com We are being attacked at all angles, and for the ignorant that is fine, but for the informed it is B.S. Lucky form you to b the latter than the former. Wake Up! Wake Up! WAKE UP!

  • Lumpy

    I like alex’s new hitler haircut. Truth in advertising.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    You mean he reminds you of Hank Bauer?

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Clavos –

    It’s not Dave that I can’t stand. It’s hypocrisy. If Dave would not do what he castigates others for doing, then I’d be attacking him much, much less. He attacked me for violating “Godwin’s Law” (which I’d never heard of at the time)…and in this article he’s not only doing the same thing, but he’s doing it to a greater degree than I did!

    And it’s not just Dave. Anyone whom I see doing the same kind of thing can receive the same kind of attack from me. AND if I commit the same kind of hypocrisy, I heartily invite everyone – you and Dave included – to gleefully point it out to all and sundry…and I’ll grab out the Tabasco and have myself a heaping helping of crow.

  • walt

    Dave should have shown a bit of respect for others. How would he react if this was done to him?
    He should have joined in the rally WITH them instead of against them. He was being an ass.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    I do agree with you, Walt. Just because public figures are exempt from BC comment policy, it doesn’t mean we should freely engage in name-calling.

    It does display a certain lack of etiquette, not to mention a lazy quality of mind whereby the person is being attacked rather than their ideas.

  • Baronius

    If the last line of defense for legal gun ownership is the popularity of Alvin Jones, then I’m going to the National Archives with Wite-out.

  • Clavos the Impaler

    Just because public figures are exempt from BC comment policy, it doesn’t mean we should freely engage in name-calling.

    Why not? Especially at the likes of Jones?

    And actually, public figures are not protected by libel and slander laws, precisely because they ARE public figures.

    Why the hell not?

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    Glenn, #6. No, it doesn’t concern me greatly. No more than it really concerns you. As usual you’re just trying to score points while adding nothing relevant to the discussion.

    As for the Hitler comparison, I think it’s valid. Watch the video where Jones storms in with his goons. Tell me it doesn’t remind you of Hitler. It’s the same old story. Most of the time Hitler comparisons are idiotic, but every once in a while they’re dead on and this is one of those times. You’d admit it if you had any integrity at all.

    Roger #24. I’ve already spent plenty of time attacking Jones’ ideas, such as they are. I have a whole website devoted to it. This article is about a specific incident and the behavior displayed there, nothing more or less.

    Dave

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    Come on, Glenn. One of his followers just made this statement. Be honest, how can anyone avoid the Hitler comparisons?

  • Jordan Richardson

    how can anyone avoid the Hitler comparisons?

    With a little tact and historical sensitivity, probably.

  • http://www.maskedmoviesnobs.com El Bicho

    As chairman of the RLC and considering he has his own wikipedia entry, Dave is a public figure, and if his thesis is that someone is a jackass, surely there’s nothing wrong with commentors giving him a taste of his own medicine.

    “proceeds to disrupt the entire rally, shouting over the speakers, shutting down the program, and ultimately driving off most of the participants with his obnoxious antics.”

    sounds like all the Americans protesting health care this summer. Did you have a problem with them? were they little Nazis as well?

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    EB, the townhall protesters were confronting their elected representatives which they have a right to do. Sure, some of them were a bit obnoxious about it.

    Alex Jones was disrupting a protest by people who he supposedly agreed with because he wasn’t the center of attention. I think that’s enormously different.

    In the one case you had an example of citizen outrage gone overboard. In the other it’s a case of ego out of control.

    And yes, I’m somewhat of a public figure. That doesn’t mean I give up having an opinion. And people are welcome to disagree with me, even when they’re dead wrong.

    Dave

  • zingzing

    so… it’s ok to bring up hitler if and when someone is reminded of him, but it’s not ok when that someone is not you. got it.

    “You’d admit it if you had any integrity at all.”

    dave, you bashed him for bringing up hitler. then you brought up hitler. seems like you don’t like to bring up hitler on principle, except when you like to bring up hitler. you’re not really helping yourself out. have a sense of humor about it, make your apologies and move on.

    “Be honest, how can anyone avoid the Hitler comparisons?”

    we can’t around here. sigh. that’s why it’s such a bad idea.

    el bicho: “sounds like all the Americans protesting health care this summer. Did you have a problem with them? were they little Nazis as well?”

    ha! nope, they were good liberty-lovin’, freedom-fightin’ ‘mericans! and it was us who reacted like dave does here who were the “fascists.”

    remember, it’s all about perspective.

  • pablo

    Pablo is here……….a long comment to follow……..for the great libertarian Dave the rave Nalle and his incredible patriotic republican liberty caucus!

  • pablo

    Well before I actually comment in detail on one of my favorite political personalities Alex Jones, I must say that I am starting to reassess my opinion that Dave the Rave Nalle was a shill for his families former employee the CIA.

    I am starting to think that Dave is actually an underground mole for Alex! After all he has done more on this site for actually bringing attention to this fine american, than I as admirer could ever do!

    First off I would like to list the following people that Mr. Jones has interviewed across the political spectrum that openly admire him.

    Cynthia Mckinney, former Congresswoman from Georgia, yes I knew you would like that one Dave.

    John Perkins author of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman”

    Webster Tarpley Author of “Obamanation” and “9/11 Synthetic Terrorism”

    Congressman Dennis Kucinich
    Congressman Ron Paul
    Catherine Austin Fitts former Commissioner at the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development in the first Bush
    Administration

    Jesse Ventura former govenor of Minnesota

    Willie Nelson Musician

    Andrew P. Napolitano – FOXNews and former Judge

    Ray McGovern former CIA employee

    These are just a few of notable people in the political arena that have not only been on Mr. Jones’s program, but have openly said that they admire him.

    First an interesting comment about Nalle’s character assassination regarding Jones being like Hitler. I recall, and should someone request it, I can google and find it, Mr. Nalle accusing me of being a nazi about a year ago, openly and in public on this site because I had gleaned a Washington Post story from a google site, and unwittingly quoted from the story and it happened to be on a neo nazi website.

    This is the kind of character assassination that Mr. Nalle frequently engages in. I have NEVER espoused any sort of racism, antisemitism or supported any time of totalitarianism in government on ANY of my articles or comments to date. Yet Nalle had no problem with characterizing me in such a rude derogatory fashion.

    Now back to Jones. Unlike Hitler Dave, Jones does not encourage, condone, nor support dictatorships, racism, antisemitism, authoritarianism, militarism, sexism, or hate in general, except to hate the criminal cabal that has seized the reigns of government in our country. To characterize him in such a fashion, as you did me, only does yourself disservice Dave, and I for one am glad to see it!

    I spotted your fake so called libetarianism several years ago when you had no compunction whatsoever in your support for overthrowing clandestinely and overtly other governments that you did not like. Guatemala 1953, Chile 1973, and Iran installing the Iran come to mind.

    Yes I am a big fan of Jones and have never made a secret out of it. I began listening to him back in 2002, after discovering him on the internet. Back then he was little known outside of coinspiracy theory realms. As we all know I am a coinspiracist.

    I have watched with admiration how his base has grown, so much that currently he is listed at 1000 on alexa.com. Which means he is the 1000th most popular site, across ALL sites, not just political on the internet today. That is amazing.

    He is loud, brash, arrogant. He is also kind, intelligent, very well read, and a true libertarian unlike you Dave. It is one thing to call out fire in a crowded theater, it is quite another thing to call out fire when there is one.

    I remember another article that you did about Jones about a year and a half ago. You took some lunatic, that had no connection to Jones whatsoever except for the fact that the guy said he liked Jones and used a video clip of this obviously deranged individual in another not so thinly disguised character assassination attempt.

    You do not use logic and reason nor debate Dave. You resort to hysteria, demagoguery, and hate to try and get your so called libertarianism across. No one is buying in case you haven’t noticed, with the exception of your side kick Clavy, that is always there to suck up to you, and the gone but not forgotten for th moment bulldog Al Barger

    So dude, I do want to thank you for your article, and giving Jones this great plug, because I know that there are others out there, not familiar with him that will now find his message.

    His message btw is very clear. Grow some balls, be americans, know your rights, demand accountability form government, and demand justice for all. yeah Dave that does sound like Hitler don’t it pal?

    Thanks again Bubba. :)

  • pablo

    Oh and Dave?

    Jones was the guy who broke this story, just as he was the guy who broke the MIAC report in Missouri fella. You seem to omit that part of the story. I am not sure however since I rarely if ever take the time to actually read the hate that you write about, but its a fair assumption, don’t ya think?

    He broke the story, and had the guy on his show who was holding the gun sale. You should at least give credit where due. I know you won’t however as that is your forte Dave.

    Thanks again for a great article!

  • pablo

    28 Nalle

    I see how it is now Dave. If someone is a leader of a movement then they are a nazi. Yeah dude, that makes perfect sense to me :)

    Why didn’t I think of that, great comparison Dave, you are soooooo insightful sometimes!

  • pablo

    Oh and one other thing Nalle. You very conveniently omitted that it was not just Texans for Accountable Government that organized and got the permit for this rally. It was also We Are Change Austin. As you may or may not be aware Dave, We Are Change was founded by Luke Rudowski. Luke was and is one of Jones’s biggest fans. Futhermore if you go onto wearechange.org’s website there is nary a article or comment that is negative about Jones. The same is true of We Are Change Austin’s website.

    Is Jones obnoxious on occasion? Yes he is. Is he overbearing? Yup he can be that too. Does he cite news reports down to the minutest detail on what he reports about? Yep he does. Is he full of himself as the leader of a big movement? Yep he is. He is the bulldog of the anti New World Order movement, as well as second to none in the 9/11 Truth movement. Not too bad for a guy in is mid 30’s.

    What you do Dave is attack him on his boorishness, instead of on the issues of the day, which after all is the crux of the issue. Furthermore I detect a great deal of personal jealousy on your part as Jones is very popular, and you are not. Your lame little website idiotwars gets little to no traffic or comments to boot as well Nalle. It only goes to illustrate how petty you can really be.

  • pablo

    Well Ummm Dave, it seems that the more offensive of the two videos that you linked to has been removed by the user! Here is a little hint for you the next time you want to use a disparaging video about Jones particularly when you are linking to We Are Change’s Austin youtube site. Use a download tool to grab it, then upload it to your own user site if you have on on youtube fella. As it is now your whole argument particularly by not referencing We Are Change who was one of the co-sponsors of this event, only reflects poorly on your hysteria, and zeal to defame a very good man.

  • pablo

    Oh and Dave? I am now in the process of investigating this we are change austin’s youtube site, and from first appearances as well a numerous commenters it seems like the site itself might be a fake, and not the real we are change austin’s site at all.

    Perhaps this is part of Cass Sunstein’s new infowar to discredit the truth movement. If you don’t know about Cass Sunstein who works for Obama, and his paper about Conspiracy Theories, maybe it is time to come up to snuff on the matter bro.

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    so… it’s ok to bring up hitler if and when someone is reminded of him, but it’s not ok when that someone is not you. got it.

    No, Zing. It’s wrong to make broad bigoted generalizations about large groups of people and compare them to Hitler or Nazis because you are too lazy to think about it. When someone actually behaves exactly like Hitler then the comparisons are unavoidable.

    Oh, and there’s Pablo with several pages of comments. Good thing I have other things to do this morning.

    I can wrap my head around this statement you made.

    Do you believe these same people have the self-discipline and intelligence to watch the State of the Union tonight, with open minds?

    I hope so.

    :)jeannie

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    Jeannie, I’m sure plenty of people will watch the SotUA with open minds. Rumor is that Obama is going to make a complete 180 on a lot of his policies. The question is how well he can suck them in with things like his deceptive “spending freeze” which isn’t going to apply to the trillions in bailouts and stimulus money.

    An open mind is a good thing, but so is a certain amount of rational scepticism.

    Dave

  • http://www.republicofdave.com Dave Nalle

    Oh, and thanks to Pablo for bringing my attention to the missing video. It was removed because it was basically an audio video recorded by accident while filming peoples legs and now that there are so many better videos of the same events on YouTube it was redundant. I’ve embeded a couple of them instead.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Dave –

    As for the Hitler comparison, I think it’s valid. Watch the video where Jones storms in with his goons. Tell me it doesn’t remind you of Hitler. It’s the same old story. Most of the time Hitler comparisons are idiotic, but every once in a while they’re dead on and this is one of those times. You’d admit it if you had any integrity at all.

    Whereas what I did was point out the Bush administration’s “Enhanced Interrogation Policy”…and how the Nazis had a program with the SAME name (in German), but with MORE protections for the one being interrogated…and I provided solid references to back up everything I said.

    And then I pointed out that I was NOT comparing the Republicans to the Nazis, that the Republican party in NO way compares to the Nazis.

    And what did you do? Point out how terrible I was for violating “Godwin’s Law”.

    Never mind that you post articles like this, comparing someone to Hitler, or accusing the president and the Democrats of being treasonous saboteurs, of deliberately sabotaging the American economy…without the least shred of proof.

    The really sad thing is that you continue to believe that there’s nothing wrong with what you did, and continue to accuse me of having a ‘lack of integrity’.

    A piece of advice, Dave – you’re a LOT more effective when you refrain from inflammatory language…because said inflammatory language eventually comes back to haunt you, and gives you the choice of either having to defend that inflammatory language, or admitting that you should never have said it. But I strongly suspect you won’t take this advice because you’re defending an obviously hypocritical act.

    Prove me wrong, Dave – refrain from inflammatory language so you don’t wind up in this position again.

  • Jordan Richardson

    When someone actually behaves exactly like Hitler then the comparisons are unavoidable.

    Weird thing to say considering that you judged Jones’ Hitlerness (!) on the zeal of his followers primarily. The comparisons are always avoidable, too, especially if you have the tact and compassion to realize that an offhanded Hitler comparison still drags up extraordinarily painful, vile memories for a lot of people.

  • pablo

    I just love Nalle showing his true colors. It makes my already bright day just a tad brighter. Thanks again for plugging Alex Jones Davey!

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    Hey, Pablo, I might take greater interest in Alex because of this article. The law of unintended consequences, one might say.

    I had no idea, though, he was this young.

  • http://jeanniedanna.wordpress.com/ jeannie danna

    Glenn,

    Does refraining from this sort of inflammatory language also apply to the comments you made on Patricia’s thread?

    :0 JUST ASKING.

  • zingzing

    dave: “It’s wrong to make broad bigoted generalizations about large groups of people and compare them to Hitler or Nazis because you are too lazy to think about it.”

    have or will you ever call the dems “fascists?”

    “When someone actually behaves exactly like Hitler then the comparisons are unavoidable.”

    and lazy.

  • pablo

    Roger,

    As I was saying Dave is doing Jones a great service, as did his other defamatory articles on him. He has the jew haters after him, the pope haters, the Pelosi style left against him, as well as the Glenn Beck Limbaugh right against him, this is one of the primary reasons that I like him so much, as well as the excellent guests that he has on discussing topis of the day.

    No doubt about though Roger, he is very brash, loud, arrogant, and can be bullying on occasion. I for one liked the verbal lashing that he gave to Michelle Malkin though, as I personally find her abhorrent. As you might imagine Roger I can’t stand Limbaugh, Savage, Beck, or Hannity either as political animals or as humans.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Jeannie –

    Did I in any way accuse Patricia of being treasonous, or being a saboteur, or being like Hitler? Did I make any unwarranted accusation whatsoever?

    I don’t think so.

    Remember, in the first several comments I made on that thread I was explaining to her (and everyone else) the reason for the mindset that Immigration has, and I specifically said that I was not saying that Immigration was right OR wrong.

    I was trying to keep from being too judgmental – and I don’t think you can argue otherwise. It was not until yesterday that I looked back at Patricia’s article and began to point out the obvious holes in her article. If you’ll remember, up until then my stated objective was not to hinder your rights, but to help her (AND you) to avoid such problems in the future.

    Jeannie, there are two sides to every story – you’ve only taken her side and have given NO allowance whatsoever to the possibility that Patricia might not be telling the whole story, that the Immigration officers might have valid or at least understandable reasons for what they did.

    No, I think I’ve been quite even-handed in my treatment of Patricia, and I believe that it would help if you would not immediately assume the worst when it comes to those ‘low-level bureaucrats’ who are every bit as human, who have all the foibles and virtues, who have all the same human rights to dignity and fairness that you yourself have.

    Jeannie, I’ve spent long enough in law enforcement to know how to find holes, how to read between the lines of written statements of others. It’s not good to be too cynical – but by the same token, it’s just as bad to be too eager to believe what the other person is saying.

    Here is my answer, again.

    Your treatment of that new writer yesterday, SUCKED!

    Here are two questions for you.

    1. Do you feel threatened by the fact that Patricia is not from the good ole’ USA?

    and if not, then,

    2. Why did you return to her thread over and over, telling her it was not only her fault but that you really didn’t even believe she was telling the truth?

    Now she has effectively been what? SILENCED?

    oh yes, you are a cop.

    Pablo,

    By Dave’s own admission, he is a public figure of sorts. And what he is doing therefore may be just one way to achieve notoriety.

  • http://drdreadful.blogspot.com Dr Dreadful

    As I was saying Dave is doing Jones a great service, as did his other defamatory articles on him. He has the jew haters after him, the pope haters, the Pelosi style left against him, as well as the Glenn Beck Limbaugh right against him…

    Who are we talking about? Jones or Dave?

    :-)

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/ roger nowosielski

    That is kind of ambiguous, ain’t it?

    I would presume Alex Jones, with Dave close second, a wannabe.

    have or will you ever call the dems “fascists?”

    Not so far. If they act like Fascists I might, but that’s really not an accurate term to apply to them in most cases. I have certainly called them marxists and will continue to do so.

    BTW, what Pablo and Roger are missing in my supposed promotion of Jones is that since he’s his own worst enemy, promoting him just means that more people will see his behavior and be exposed to his beliefs and be repulsed by them. It’s like turning over a rock and finding a nest of maggots.

    ” His goal is self-promotion and probably personal profit as well”

    This is an absolute crock of shit! Jones was covering these matters before blogs existed, and he gives his material away free on the web. Forgive the guy for wanting some profit, however, this is a monetary world after-all.

    Alex may be a tinfoil specialist at times, but he’s one of the few people actually reporting on the real stuff too, with absolute conviction I may add!

  • pablo

    Another interesting thing of note to me regarding Nalle’s smear of Jones is about John Bush the co-sponsor of the event.

    By Mr. Bush’s own admission, he credits Alex Jones for hie political awakening. Catherine Bleish who also hosts a radio show with John Jones also has been a huge fan of Jones over the years. In fact she was twittering about how excited she was that Jones was going to be at the rally.

    I will be the first to admit, that Jones does did appear as an ass. Perhaps due to Jones’s huge ego he did not want to be upstaged. That a nazi does not make however.

    What I do find interesting about Nalle’s continual attempted character assassination of Jones, is why he never will talk about the substance rather than the man. Jones indeed is directly responsible for a HUGE political awakening in the liberty/freedom/sovereign/anti NWO movements. That is just plain fact.

    Smear has always been Dave’s forte however, ever since I came unto this site.

    Case in point that Dave will never actually respond to, was/is his continual denegration of me because I do not subscribe to the official conspiracy theory regarding 9/11. He does not even have the integrity to admit the obvious. That is that he himself is a conspiracy theorist just by subscribing to the official story!

    Then the fact that he will not debate it, but will only defame, deride, and ridicule that which he does not agree with only shows his true character even more.

    I may be many things folks, but I do know how to convey my thoughts in a clear fashion. I do know how to use logic, and common sense. I also know how to communicate in a fairly clear and concise fashion. However that is not good enough for Nalle. Instead of civil discourse with me on this issue, he resorts to defamation. He has not only called me repeatedly delusional, and a tin foil hat guy, but a nazi as well.

    So again when someone that uses these sorts of hysterical non-rational tools to discuss issues of the day, in this case Jones, he is doing Alex Jones a huge service. Thanks again Davey!

    Hey Dave,

    I just thought I would let you know bro, that both Debra Medina candidate for governor of Texas, and Darwin Boedecker the gun show owner that was as the fracas are both on Alex Jones today! It’s a must listen for any red blooded Texan pal. :)

    Dave,

    From Luke Rudowski the founder of We Are Change..

    ” To all WeAreChange Chapters:
    I want to remind everyone that it’s imperative that during these hard times and despite our differences that we stay united. We can and shall not turn on each other and fall into the traps that are laid before us.

    Just like Alex Jones defended WeAreChange when we were attacked from all corners, we defend Alex. We may not all agree with each other and are certainly not all perfect, but we’re in this fight together and should not be fighting against each other. We come from different backgrounds and lifestyles but are ultimately working towards a common goal.

    You don’t have to like Alex Jones but attacking him is counterproductive. It was Alex Jones that woke me up from my slumber and motivated me to start WeAreChange which now has over 200 chapters around the world. It is his tireless work for years now that has spoken and shown us and he deserves to be judged by the fruits of labor. We proudly stand side-by-side with him and the Infowars team as we defend the Republic and free humanity across the globe.

    WeAreChange was not started to bash others and make public spectacles over petty disagreements. It was started to move away from the drama and deal with problems in this world by motivating our fellow citizens to take action.

    The WeAreChange name cannot be used to attack, slander, or otherwise defame Alex Jones or another person’s character who we work with. Anyone using the WeAreChange name to attack anyone in the patriot community should cease from using the name WeAreChange, it is against our code of conduct and mission statement and will not be tolerated.

    We are all family and we shall stand together resisting tyranny!

    We Are Change

    Jones isn’t Hitler, however, he IS a naricisstic douchebag who manages to sabotage the causes he champions rather frequently.

    Makes me wonder if he isn’t being paid off by someone in one of his conspiracies to be a bit like those Cointelpro guys who used to turn protests into riots so that the protesters and their leaders could be arrested…

    Both of those individuals have radically changed their opinion of Jones in the last week. Eventually everyone halfway sensible who is exposed to Jones learns what he’s really like and comes to despise him.

    Cannon, you’re not the first to raise that concern. It ws rampant after this event here in Austin.

    Hey Davey, I just thought I would let you know that the Drudge Report is carrying one of Alex Jones’s sites articles on his front page today man. I knew you would be excited about this, so I wanted to be the first to tell ya. As you may or may not know Drudge’s site is in the top 100 sites on the internet for the US man. Great article too, I hyperlinked it just for you bud. I can see too, being as your the political editor of this site, that you are keeping this excellent piece that you wrote on Jones on the front page of the political section still! Keep up the good shilling, Good work bro.

    Oh and Dave? Your the man! Pun intended pal.

    Look for the article titled “SHOCK CLAIM: Naked Body Scanner Images Of Film Star Printed, Circulated By Airport Staff” on Drudge dude.

  • pablo

    Oh yeah and Dave? The article is highlighted in red, one of only three links on the whole drudge site this way. :) :)

  • Andrew Hoffman

    It was amazing how quickly those YouTube videos that were bashing AJ went up…very well coordinated. This article is clearly an excellent piece of journalism that gives people a clear understanding of the real issue that was being discussed at the protest. Oh wait, it’s actually just the 50,000th Internet attack by some jealous nobody on Alex Jones. Congratulations, we were all hoping for that.

  • Arch Conservative

    I’ll take Alex Jone sover Barack Obama, George Bush, Al Gore, and the rest of the getalong gang any day.

    Yo Nalle,

    You catch Michael Badnarik today on the Alex Jones show at infowars buddy? Yeah man it was a really good interview. As you might know Badnarik recently had a massive heart attack and almost died. He really like Jones too man. He actually said to him today on Jones’s show:

    “Alex i love you and im not going to let you fight for liberty all by yourself.” I guess not all Texans are distancing themselves from that evil nazi eh Davey?

    The thank god Newsweek did a hit piece this week on conspiracy theories. It was the weakest article I have ever read, and they plugged Alex Jones like mad man. Thank god for publications such as Newsweek. [Personal attack deleted by Comments Editor]

  • Michael

    Alex Jones is a liar for profit. Just like televangelists, just like Kevin Mark Trudeau, just like John Boehner. Anyone who thinks he’s fighting for freedom is a misguided person who should spend a lot of time re-evaluating themselves.

    And what sucks more is that people like him have easier access to getting his sensationalism and fear-mongering out to the equally uneducated masses that actually believe his garbage, creating a breeding ground for even more extremism in society.

    People who are paranoid that the world is out to get them are the same people who gripe about their life situation and try to blame it on others. Yeah, it’s Obama and the NWO’s fault that you aren’t upwardly mobile. Yep, keep believing that so I can move up in your place.

    I’ll never say that Alex Jones and his misinformed followers don’t have a right to express themselves. They have that right. But I also have the right (like oh, about 95% of the general public) to think that taking him and his fans seriously is akin to admitting insanity.

    Because he’s a liar. And an idiot. And detrimental to honest debate and dissent. I hope the document camera he has breaks off its tripod and hits him in the head. And hopefully it will damage the part of the brain that allows him to communicate. I would put more money in the Church collection plate if God could do me that solid, no doubt about it.

    You want to feel shewder and hipper than everybody else? Read Kierkegaard and Watch some George Carlin performances. If you want to let the world know that you took lots of PE and shop in High School, keep up with the Joneses.

    I wrote about Alex Jones being a narcissist in my journal (click my link look him up), but the strange thing is, is that he says things that require above average intelligence, things that aren’t infantile like narcissists are known for. I think it may be that I didn’t realize that though narcissists can be immature, that they can also think maturely and have moments of clarity, but it’s as if their pride suddenly goes away and they become normal. It’s very confusing as it is as if they are cured momentarily, but then go back to being insane. It’s so strange, if only I could see the configuration of a narcissist mind to understand what is really going on.

  • Chris

    This is complete bullshit, if your going to get in my face and not allow me to answer then when I do answer all you want to do is antagonize I wouldn’t want to talk to you either. Take your CNN reporting somewhere else. Alex Jones is and will always be the voice of the people.
