Maybe this stuff has always been out there, but lately I’ve noticed it getting more and more circulation. Sandy Hook, Chris Dorner, and now the Boston Marathon bombings, are all apparently the work of the US government; orchestrated to bring about the final destruction of the Constitution, and the installment of Obama as ‘President For Life.’ There is always some convoluted bullshit “evidence” put forward, proclaiming itself to be the truth (often easily refuted within 30 seconds with a search engine). Apparently, Alex Jones is now saying that the late Chris Kyle’s company, Craft International, somehow played a role in the Boston bombings, simply because someone claimed to have seen them in photographs of the marathon.
As easily refuted as these things are, they keep spreading. People who I would have thought knew better simply keep spreading the bullshit around, because, “This administration has lied so much I wouldn’t put anything past them,” or, “Even if it is fake, it’s good to wake people up so that they have to be vigilant.” What bullshit. A lie is a lie. A half-truth pointing to a lie is a lie. Someone who lies to you for “good reasons” is still a liar, and a scumbag, to boot.
Alex Jones is a whore. He finds obscure and isolated facts, statistics or pictures, and builds sinister conspiracies out of them, the more outrageous the better. Oh, and he makes sure to keep them short of the “tinfoil-hat wearing UFO crowd.” He wouldn’t get nearly as much traffic if he went that far. But his entire M.O. is to stir up as much outrage and paranoia as possible in order to get more attention and, therefore, more money. He is no different than the political whores in DC who will exploit any opportunity they can to garner more power and money. This has been illustrated time and again with the stuff Jones comes up with.
I am sick and fucking tired of hearing knee-jerk bullshit touted as truth, when ten minutes of research would show it to be completely false. I’m tired of people giving the government so much credit. The DOJ couldn’t even keep gun-running to Mexico secret for very long. But somehow, these government goons can orchestrate, execute and keep quiet mass murders on American soil? Fucking please. Start thinking for yourselves, instead of listening to some fucking fraud who tells you that listening to him equates to thinking for yourself.
I am the last guy who is going to trust either politicians or bureaucrats. I am fully aware of the massive abuses perpetrated by the government, most of which are in blatant violation of the Constitution. But this level of paranoia is the exact same as the leftist ideal that somehow the government is the embodiment of intelligence and moral rectitude. It is this belief (that the government is somehow made up of people who are supremely competent and organized) that is a lie. Governments are made up of people. The sooner we remember that, the sooner we’ll become more interested in the truth, rather than in the current “outrage of the day” nonsense.
