Correct spelling is for the sheeples

I'm not super familiar with Mr Jones' work, and I want to believe this is some kind of bad lip reading thing. But no, we got the universe where people actually get a platform to say that kind of crap didn't we?

Yeah his lyrics are a bit abstract, but listen to that melody and arrangement. I saw him in college

As someone who has suffered Mr. Jones' bloviating since the early-1990's days of Austin cable access and pirate radio, I have to say that I freaking love this so hard.

Alex Jones is a scourge who deserves to me mercilessly mocked forever.

Now I want to hear an Alex Jones / GWAR mashup. InfoGWARs.

I love the smell of fresh tears in the morning.

the best part of the InfoGWARs show is when Ignoramus Bullshitticus shoots fluorescent colored gooey "false flag" juice out of his oversized prosthetic ego.

Lets not forget that Infowars has White House press credentials.

I haven't forgotten. I'm perpetually horrified.

I've never watched this much Alex Jones, but he reminds me of an adult-sized yet kid-proportioned Bobby Hill with Dale's worldview.

What's scary about Alex Jones is that he's had argued in court that it's all an act, but his influence has led to real world violence (PizzaGate) and is a poison in our society.

I get the whole First Amendment argument, but holy fuck! At what point does someone get discredited to the point where the platform for their crazy gets yanked?

Oh, right. Advertising dollars. Also a poison in our society.

Yes, imagine the horrors Mr. Jones will speak of. The strange workings of the power elite for the next 3.5 or 7.5 years.

Imagine Trump at the bohemian grove and Alex having a press pass to catch the outdoor peeing as an example.

I'm happy to say I only knew Alex Jones to be a person for a short while. For the longest time I thought Alex Jones was a horse, and he was showing up with more frequency in headlines that made no sense for a horse to be in, but nonetheless I thought maybe the horse racing lobby is trying some viral marketing or something, whatever. Finally i got tired of seeing this Alex Jones mentioned too far outside of derby season, looked him up and learned that he is a person and not the fictitious conglomeration of Phila area horses Afleet Alex and Smarty Jones that my brain concocted in avoidance of truth.
