Alex Jones Wants To Be Taken Seriously: ‘I’m Not Making Jack Crap Up, I’m Not Making Nothing Up’

Apparently not satisfied with being America’s highest profile conspiracy theorist, Texas radio host Alex Jones wants to be taken seriously, reports Right Wing Watch:

Alex Jones said last week that he is sick and tired of everyone dismissing him as a conspiracy theorist, when actually he is a real man trying to tell people the truth!

“I am not making jack crack up, okay? I’m not making nothing up,” he charged. “We’re already in deep you know what but it’s getting deeper fast, and as a man, as a parent, my spider sense is just off the charts.”

He also warned “InfoWars” listeners that the government is getting ready to launch false flag attacks in order to start a civil war and commit mass arrests.

“We are in a progressing tyranny, it’s progressive like brain cancer, malignant cancer, it’s metastasized, it’s blooming right now and unequivocally I can say the people running things are clearly going to stage massive terror attacks and blame it on domestic groups and they are going to try to come arrest a lot of people,” Jones said

    Translation: Alex Jones isn’t making as much money as he once was.

    Avoid the Noid!

    • Adam's Shadow | Jul 29, 2014 at 9:29 pm |

      Exactly. Jones is an entertainer: he knows his audience, he knows his brand, and he’s just trying to make sure his market share doesn’t shrink any more than it already has since its 2012(ish?) peak. Good luck with that, brother. He’s the only guy I know who makes Piers Morgan look like less of a douchebag in comparison.

      • Echar Lailoken | Jul 29, 2014 at 9:33 pm |

        The whole Piers morgan Alex Jones guns interview. I am sure after the cameras went off they shook hands and congratulated each other on money easily earned.

        • Adam's Shadow | Jul 29, 2014 at 10:00 pm |

          I completely agree; that whole interview is a perfect example of how to cater to and manipulate an ignorant American audience by pushing as many buttons as possible. Here’s a pompous, smug British pseudo-journalist arguing with a red-faced, paranoid libertarian from Texas about guns. Enjoy, America!

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 29, 2014 at 10:27 pm |

            knowing about
            that whole interview is a perfect example of
            how to cater to and manipulate an ignorant American

          • Adam's Shadow | Jul 29, 2014 at 11:18 pm |

            Maybe; but it helps to analyze and understand how media and culture manipulate you. I don’t necessarily consider myself outside of it, and I’m not sure such a thing is truly possible, but I do think I’m aware of the situation and trying to remedy it as best I can. I used that Morgan-Jones interview to show my middle school Journalism students not only how mass media manufactures controversy and molds public opinion(s), but also how not to have a debate.

            I find it unnecessary to expose myself to Ebola
            just to verify it’s the plague
            I’m more concerned about the undetected pathogens
            I encounter from the media’s massage
            thinking you’re immune is a mistake

          • Adam's Shadow | Jul 30, 2014 at 7:19 pm |

            Oh, I don’t think I’m immune; but the media’s massage is near ubiquitous. All you have to do is look at the ads that scroll by on this website. You can pretend that you won’t catch it, but it’s everywhere. And not every media or memetic virus is Ebola; sometimes it’s polio, or tuberculosis, or the flu, in which case it’s a good idea to get an immunization now and then.

            I do have a problem with people who somehow believe that they’re “above it all” and look down on the rest of us bourgeois fools.

          • There’s ads on disinfo?
            Use Firefox: no ads.

          • Adam's Shadow | Jul 30, 2014 at 7:51 pm |

            Yeh. Fucking Chrome. I used Firefox for years then switched. Mayhaps I should switch back.

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 7:52 pm |

            if I thought I was above it all
            I wouldn’t comment
            but since you’re already leaning in the right direction
            I thught I’d nudge you a little further

            many people have come to believe
            that being well infotained is beneficial
            butt I
            have not gotten one benefit
            out of anything from the Jonesez or Limpbagerz

          • Adam's Shadow | Jul 31, 2014 at 1:17 am |

            Well put sir; thank you.

          • Echar Lailoken | Jul 29, 2014 at 11:36 pm |

            Knowing that it can manipulate is a great way to counteract.

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:40 am |

            knowing that it does manipulate
            both consciously and unconsciously
            and eschewkng it
            is understanding in action

          • Echar Lailoken | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:47 am |

            I am aware of most this crap because of disinfo, much like yourself. I blame disinfo. In this instance, I think I am relatively safe. I view Alex Jones/David Icke as modern day carnie criers on crack. You got the rubes, those in on the joke, and those who refuse to be parted with their money.

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:08 pm |

            I spent a few years deep in Conspiracy Whirled
            then I realized its effects were not worth it
            and it tied me more deeply to that I wanted to cut

            research has shown that even trained professionals
            can be seripticiously manipulated
            by well crafted presentations of rigged disinfo

          • Echar Lailoken | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:16 pm |

            I have read the same about trained professionals. The presentations can be the most suggestive. With NLP, timing, limiting access to the outside world, hiding clocks, body language, etc.

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:20 pm |

            knowing some basic Benares, nlp, cognitive psycholgy etc
            can help
            most of the time the manipulation is impreceptable
            because it was designed for imperceptibly

          • Echar Lailoken | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:28 pm |

            Please give me an example/s beyond archetypal themes in entertainment. Do you mean subliminal cues, such as 1 frame references? Or maybe audio influences, such as UK authorities using classical music to deter hoodlums? Or grocery stores using low volume muzak to lull, or confusing/product placement to encourage sales?

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:35 pm |

            Daniel Kahneman has lots in “Thinking Fast & Slow”
            Bandler covers much of this stuff too
            I learned a lot of it from sales training gurus

            reframing, framing, anchors, biases, halo effects
            are all part of the content manipulation
            you need McLuhan
            to know about the effects of electronic media massage

          • Echar Lailoken | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:45 pm |

            I read a few chapters of Thinking Fast & Slow, I took a break but still have it in my library. I have a load of McLuhan books in my library as well. I will have to delve back into this topic.

            Speaking of sales Gurus, one book I read and own is Mind Programming by Eldon Taylor. I’ll see if I can find some Bandler.

            I grew up around a petty hustler or two. I tend to have a nose for liars tricks. It can be useful but sometimes there’s false positives. R.A.W. talked about this in Quantum Psychology, I think, where one get the results they are expecting.

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 3:32 pm |

            I’ve read Fast & Slow twice
            still haven’t assimilated it all yet

            Frogs to Princes, Trance Formations,
            Using Your Brain for a Change

            it took me
            decades to get McLuhuan

            I studied stage magic
            and discovered how easily perception is manipulated

          The first two words that popped into my mind upon seeing this “news” was STUPID BEACON.

  2. Anarchy Pony | Jul 29, 2014 at 9:16 pm |

    Now watch the domestic groups he was warning will attempt preemptive action, and then the government won’t need false flags.

  3. I’m not making NOTHING up is right.

  4. LMAO!!!!

  5. jimpliciter | Jul 29, 2014 at 10:03 pm |

    Double negation in both sentences- he’s conceding that he has made it up! He even pauses and gives you the eyeball to see if you’re paying attention.

      Give this man an award.

    • Craig Bickford | Jul 30, 2014 at 3:17 pm |

      Pretty much, I like his media empire for one thing, one thing that I think is legit, mainly that he provides a space for more realistic and level headed researchers like James Corbett, Jon Rapppoport, etc. At least there is some not so noxious secondary benefit from his whining and wailing (though I do find my self agreeing with him (Jones) on some points, it just depends what the info is, if it has sourcing that is legit, and if it isn’t too removed from my interest area).

      • Craig Bickford | Jul 30, 2014 at 3:18 pm |

        The all true and false thing is part of the game you know, keep us off balance. Once you know i it’s hard to un-know, then you just move on. No big deal really. If people can critically think, they can think past this BS, it’s really not that fucking hard.

        • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 4:58 pm |

          the best tactic for thinking people
          is to avoid exposing themselves to it
          lest it contaminate their thinking

          if you ever intentionally stop following the news
          you will discover that it is following you

          • Number1Framer | Jul 30, 2014 at 8:42 pm |

            I like that statement about the news following you. I’m using that one.

            …Is it still behind me?

          • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 8:48 pm |

            once I was in a fishing village
            in the middle of the Tonle Sap in Cambodia
            they had a sattlite dish or two
            it was 08 and they wanted to know about Obama
            I told them he was Pol Pot in disguise

          • Craig Bickford | Aug 4, 2014 at 3:18 pm |

            If you’re thinking ca be that contaminated you’re not doing it right man. Sorry to be the one to tell you. LOL.

      • BuzzCoastin | Jul 30, 2014 at 5:03 pm |

        it’s always nice to have a preference
        for which type of disinfohorseshit you’d prefer
        “I’ll take my Newspeak in Leftest please.”
        butt its all mental masterbation about piddly diddly

  7. Even when you get one right, it was still jack crap you made up.

    • Number1Framer | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:13 am |

      Dammit! I posted this same thing 2 hours ago and mine is still stuck in spam-moderation limbo-hell! But yes, that is the absolute best break down of Jones ever written. Thoroughly cited, well written, and argued passionately. There’s someone else out there (maybe connected to this article) that literally did a scene by scene, second by second break down of Jones’ “The Obama Deception” and detailed how every clip in the whole film was taken out of context or timeframe. I’d post a link, but it won’t show up for a day or 2, so screw it.

  8. astrofrog | Jul 30, 2014 at 1:15 am |

    Been wondering for a while exactly what Jones’ function is in the COINTELPRO/Mockingbird scheme of things, under the assumption that he might actually be working for intelligence agencies, and given that some fraction of what he says is, in fact, more or less true. Function one, obviously, is to look like a crazy lunatic and so get any suggestion of government or corporate malfeasance associated with same. But it strikes me that his basic line, “They’re going to make their Big Move any moment now!”, hasn’t changed in years. Of course, false flags have been popping off all over the rest of the world (Syrian gas attacks, MH-17, etc), but never here, simply because there is no need. Perhaps another function is to habituate people to the crying of wolf.

  9. We cant throw Alex out the door if he cries wolf too much. If 20% of what he says is true we better listen. So just sift threw the crap and catch what truth is in it. I rather have him around than not. Think about it .

    • Jin The Ninja | Jul 31, 2014 at 1:59 am |

      its about 5%, but the real problem is how he mixes truth and untruth, fact with blazing hysteria, nationalism, ‘paleo’ conservatism and bullshit.
      i’d rather not have him around, and have people who are able to listen to literate media sources literately. 80% is at the very least, the ratio of truth to mis-information we should strive for in public ‘intellectuals.’ not that i am implying jones is in any way an intellectual, that would be mis-information.

  10. BrianApocalypse | Jul 30, 2014 at 10:20 am |

    Doesn’t he say this every week?

  11. doodahman | Jul 30, 2014 at 12:50 pm |

    The country is going full metal fascist and ultimately, the number one play in the fascist handbook is the false flag leading to war and repression. Nothing weird or controversial about that– the question is not why Alex Jones isn’t being taken seriously, but why isn’t our move into fascism taken seriously. Unfortunately, the answer to that question might be Alex Jones….

  12. I always liked the “bill hicks is alex jones” idea
    doubtful its true, but it is comedic

    • Craig Bickford | Jul 30, 2014 at 3:19 pm |

      Well they were friends and form the same city, or lived in the same area at one time, andI guess there would be similarities or cross overs in their cultural upbringing as well.

    • Number1Framer | Jul 30, 2014 at 8:48 pm |

      If you’re REALLY bored one day, call in to his show (lie to the call screener obviously), and bring this up when you get on. You will be revealed as a government spook trying to discredit his freedom screams in front of the whole family audience, but it is quite a funny thing to do.

    • Number1Framer | Jul 30, 2014 at 8:49 pm |

      Maybe one day Bill will take off his Big Guy Suit he’s been wearing these last few years and tell us in a nice ‘inside voice’ to go shoot ourselves for believing this shit he made up.

    • BrianApocalypse | Jul 30, 2014 at 9:00 pm |

      Some people think that along with being Bill Hicks, Alex Jones is also Beau Bridges!

    • As someone said recently, “I think Alex Jones is a false flag” and that theory isn’t as fringe as you might think, it has a LOT going for it, see —

  13. Craig Bickford | Jul 30, 2014 at 3:12 pm |

    We all can see we are headed for a cold war 2.0 of magnificently retarded proportions or another middle east fiasco to keep that war debt jacked through the roof, I think he is just pissed that we (the proto-psychopaths in our present government) realized we’ll just have another war instead of turning this shit hole into El Salvador.

  14. Men don’t have “spider sense”. Spider-Men have “spider sense”. Is Alex Jones saying that he is in fact a Spider-Man?

  15. Chris Waddell | Jul 30, 2014 at 6:47 pm |

    Apparently Alex has forgotten what “full scale” war is. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the guy would be listened to and respected more if he didn’t fly off the handle like some madcap evangelist.

  16. Aipeed Teaitchse | Jul 30, 2014 at 11:39 pm |

    24 hours after Majestic posted “The Sixth Extinction Is Here – And It’s Our Fault” the disinfonauts shrug their shoulders and try to convince themselves nothing is wrong and there is no war in the Ukraine or the Middle East. I just wish he would stop making this crap up so everyone could stop being so paranoid – because it’s all true and it’s all false man.

  17. Saxon Revolt | Jul 31, 2014 at 9:55 pm |

    Jones is doing more to awaken the masses than anybody including you. People that have a beef with him always turn out to be either complete sheep or disinfo spreaders.

    • Jin The Ninja | Aug 1, 2014 at 1:31 am |

      the masses?
      the gun toting, white nationalist, ‘libertarian,’ paleo conservative, ultra conspiracy theory, xenophobic masses?
      oh yeah those.

    • Echar Lailoken | Aug 1, 2014 at 3:46 am |

      I have a feeling that Alex Jones frequently reinforces that anyone who “has a beef with him” is either a “sheep or disinfo spreader”. I feel that you may want to reassess what it means to blindly follow.

    • Echar Lailoken | Aug 3, 2014 at 12:24 pm |

      Pardon, I didn’t catch that last fit of bleating.

  18. “I’m not making nothing up.” So that means you are making everything up?
