Every now and then[edit]

Alex Jones may be the most paranoid wackjob on Earth, but he does make some good points and connections now and then. I also loved his cameo in the film "Waking Life."The Goonie 1 01:00, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

We have an article on that already. - π 01:36, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
We need a third "talk radio" article I think - not lib or con, but nutter? "woo talk radio"? ħumanUser talk:Human 06:02, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, NWO nutters like Alex Jones are not lib or con. Just fucked in the head. Have you seen The Obama Deception/ Biggest piece of paranoid gibberish I have ever seen. Ace McWickedModel 500 06:28, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Should this be added?[edit] You got to admit it's pretty damn funny.Ryantherebel (talk) 17:49, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

IMO the earlier 'chimpanzee' section was much better, it brings more attention to the video. Not many people would click the footnote to see the video. (talk) 03:27, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Are we to crate entire sections based on every weird thing Jones utters? AceModerator 03:28, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
At least for the major ones? This is too good to be buried in a footnote imo. (talk) 06:15, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Sockpuppets present?[edit]

Has anyone checked that out? There's absolutely no way in hell he can have that many likes on each video he uploads on YT.

A disproportionate amount of the internet are conspiracy theorists. Mr. Anon (talk) 03:40, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Doesn't help that organizations like Anonymous go around making claims like "a new law allows the government to assassinate US citizens". Also, it makes sense that conspiracy theorists end up being the ones who find conspiracy videos. Mr. Anon (talk) 03:42, 22 May 2012 (UTC)


Are the chief 'grand unified conspiracy theorists' themselves actually the conspiracy - along the lines of 'The Man who was Thursday'? (talk) 18:30, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Copied from Forum[edit]

Rational Wiki?? All i read on the Rational Wiki Alex Jones page was biased. I have absolutely no time for sites like this. A balanced opinion of somebody is fair. I associate Rational Wiki with those bullies at school who have an inferiority complex of themselves and love to bitch about others to make themselves feel good.

You had my attention on the world wide web, and lost it within seconds.

Alex Jones Exposed

This site is crazy, I hope it's a Poe, because it's just chock-full o' anti-semitic nuts. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 19:18, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

As a general rule, for each prominent CT - Jones, Icke, etc. - there is at least one other conspiracist claiming that they are disinfo agents/shills for the TPTB/mind-controlled plants, etc. In Conspiracyland, people can't be ignorant, mistaken, deluded or just wrong (since admitting that would put ones' own positions in question), so if they contradict what one believes, they must be agents of the Enemy.--ZooGuard (talk) 19:40, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hitchen's quote[edit]

If it is not about Jones why is it there? Aren't we effectively putting words in his mouth? He probably agreed with the sentiment, but it is not our place to express his view on Jones for him. - π 09:21, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Political stance[edit]

I merged all the little bits on Alex Jones' politics into one section, and they seem a bit contradictory. What does Alex Jones really think, here? Cømrade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 18:16, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

If Alex Jones has even one sincere belief system in his head from my observation it is an intellectually dishonest interpretation of Objectivism that enables his predatory radio chicanery on the logic that if he can make money any way at all and if it profits him then there is nothing wrong with his behavior no matter how destructive it might be to his listeners and whomever he targets with his bag of hoaxes. It should be readily apparent to anyone observing for long enough that Jones doesn't believe much of anything that he is saying and is merely saying it to build his radio brand and make money. Jones is a professional infotainment charlatan and his chosen medium is conspiracy theories. It's all money making and self promotion for him; writing him off as crazy only serves his purposes because it deflects from the real issue: that all of this is a not very elaborate system of hoaxes designed to make money. Pelican (talk) 17:27, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

This chart[edit]

What is it saying? [1] FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ﹐ Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 05:42, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Alex Jones is a professional charlatan and clearly does not believe any of this[edit]

If you REALLY want to accurately label Alex Jones and inform people, call him for what he is: a charlatan who makes his money and fame by creating conspiracy hoaxes.

Alex Jones is not just a garden variety crazy person. Jones is a professional conspiracy charlatan for pay and absolutely not any kind of true believer in these conspiracy theory hoaxes that he spins. He is a charlatan out to get money and promote himself. Furthermore, referring to him as a crazy does EVERYONE except Alex Jones and his advertising revenue a disservice.

Let me say that again: It is of the utmost importance to not refer to Alex Jones as just another crazy but instead as professional infotainment charlatan. Jones feeds off of the crazy label; he loves that shit. When people call him crazy it draws his fans closer to him and actually builds loyalty. He's pretending to be "one of them"; identical to his listeners who actually do believe these things. They are his rubes and he needs them to stay in business.

It is vital to his business model for these people to think of him as "ONE OF THEM" and calling him a crazy is just another way to make them accept him as their own. After all, those people who do believe these things have probably been called crazy a bunch of times. Jones is, in his own way, building a cult of a sort wherein his listeners are invited to be a part of a group of people with 'secret knowledge'; this distributed cult is isolated from outsiders through a system of hostile rhetoric on both sides of the issue; People who disagree with them are often insulting and dismissive (because the things they say are admittedly quite ludicrous) on the one hand and people who agree with them are programmed to be insulting and dismissive themselves through repetition of Jones's many insults (sheeple, etc) to absolutely anyone who is critical of his many conspiracy hoaxes. Jones is not a passive participant in this either because he routinely goes on rants designed to alienate his listeners from any potential voice of reason by targeting any critic loud enough to get his attention. Additionally, the rhetoric is designed to appeal to people who rely on magical thinking as a coping mechanism for a world that one can surmise they already feel is sinister and rather arcane. As tempting as it is to dismiss Alex Jones as a loonie, actually plays into his hands. IMO if he could be said to be crazy, it is because he has no morals, no ethics and clearly no sense of human decency or responsibility to his fellow persons in any perceivable way.

This is the kind of guy that can laugh while he labels the family's of dead kids as fakes and encourage his listeners to further antagonize survivors of the Sandy Hook horror. Crazy in a fashion but not in the way it is easy to think. He's the other kind of crazy; the one that can laugh and hurt people for profit after their children get killed by a psycho with an assault rifle. If we really want to fight against the kind of thing Jones brings into the room, it should be defining him by his actual 'sins'... crazy people aren't really responsible for crimes are they? Lets make Alex Jones responsible and not give him the escape route he needs. Pelican (talk) 18:19, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

While I personally agree, where's the hard evidence? It's possible that he's really just that crazy, and so are a few million people. Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 19:16, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
Poe-o-meter is over 9000!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 20:21, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
Its so unlikely that I wouldn't even consider it a possibility; like Bigfoot for example. The architecture and dissemination of his rhetoric drives the likelihood he believes these things to an extremely unlikely place. People who are so disordered that they absolutely believe all of the things Jones claims are just not capable of maintaining a career, radio show, or really much of a functional life at all. Its not just that either, if you pay attention the way these wild rafts of lies are cobbled together you start to see the pattern that Jones is desperately bundling things together to pack as much intrigue as possible into everything that crosses his desk. He's not even that good of a liar, its just that the nature of his audience is such that they don't think very critically about what they are being told. And he supplements that by repeating these things over and over again. If you've ever looked at a good debunking of his work it becomes very apparent that he freehands damn near everything he says with little to no actual research done on anything. The centerpiece of his Molech (Moloch) nonsense regarding bohemian grove is pure theological gibberish and while he is capable of redressing very slight and nuanced positions against him in a characteristic intellectually dishonest manner he's never once retracted anything that was shown to be completely unfactual. He just repeats himself louder and often accompanied by plugs for his radio ad and his little advertisement films for his radio show that he likes to call documentaries. If you take all of his serial logical fallacy employment, his use of manipulative propaganda tactics (however poorly), his free willingness to lie incessantly without pause or censor, his bombastic angry responses to even the slightest questioning, his incessant plugging of his own work and sourcing of his own vapid work as evidence all together with the understanding that this is a man that gets up every day and goes to work to do a radio show and finds time to hold long coherent conversations with celebrity guests while operating his program then the only likely culprit for his behavior left is self promotion for profit; not any kind of serious mental illness other than maybe being a psychopath with no functional sense of morality or ethics. Pelican (talk) 04:49, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
@arisboch, Seriously, you think my position is extreme? He's chasing ratings. What exactly do you think his business model is? Go on the air, tell the truth in a reasoned and well sourced manner? He's doing this for money. Christ, I can't believe anybody would think he was actually being honest given the way he conducts himself.— Unsigned, by: Pelican / talk / contribs

Adultery claims of Alex Jones and alleged divorce of jewish wife[edit]

Should the below link be allowed in the links section? Some people says no.

Is there violation of rules on this wiki? (talk) 00:46, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
I question it's validity since the only things I can find on it make Alex look like the sane guy. The fervor over it is interesting, especially from fans, like David Duke was the subject. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 19:55, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
The link is legitimate and I see no violation of any rules here. I see no problem with the link being placed in the article. Anyone feels that there is violation of rules? (talk) 00:44, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh come now. No, we should not link to a blog dedicated to "exposing" the "Judeo-Masonic conspiracy." smh --
Adding, unless it is a link to demonstrate woo or idiocy etc; but not for support of a claim per se.-Mona- (talk) 00:57, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
The article is sound, it does not say that Alex Jones has committed adultery or is divorced. It talks about allegations and rumours on those issues. I see no problem with the source. (talk) 05:41, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
"There are rumours that the user of IP is secretly an eater of jerboa intestines with Barney Torville." Should we start an article?

Wikipedia's "political skeptic" description of Jones[edit]

On the Wikipedia page of this fine specimen of human delusion and paranoia, Jones is described as a "political skeptic". That amused me a little bit considering that Joneses work seems quite on the contrary to skepticism. I'm curious why he's described as a "political skeptic" because pretty much all people described as skeptics don't believe in this bunk (in fact, they debunk said bunk) that Jones believes in.--WMS (talk) 22:00, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

He is political, but he's the opposite of a skeptic. Someone who consistently errs on the side of "less plausable" with Occam's Razor (i.e. believes any batshit conspiracy told to him)isn't a skeptic. Petey Plane (talk) 22:12, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Wonder why Wikipedia labeled him as a "skeptic". Anyway, thank you for the clarification: I'm very glad that he doesn't fall under the skeptic category--WMS (talk) 22:39, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
Just one of Wiki's many failed attempts at maintaining an NPV. Petey Plane (talk) 13:14, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
Yes. And I think, even so, labeling him as any type of "skeptic" is objectively incorrect, even according to their NPOV. That should be changed to some other NPOV term that isn't actually wrong. And all of this because they can't just call him what he is, the "fairy godmother of cranks". Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:30, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
"Fairy godmother of cranks" hahahaha, that's bloody brilliant, I love it!--WMS (talk) 20:47, 2 June 2016 (UTC)


It might be better to choose less crass wording in view of your international audience where cultures vary. Unless the point is to be crass and insulting so you will not be taken seriously.

>basically the same horseshit

>Jones can't fart without blaming it on a conspiracy of bean producers.

Why Alex won't be appearing on RT any longer[edit]

I haven't the stomach to watch this man talk anymore, but it appears Alex won't be consulted on RT anymore (which he used to be, VERY fucking regularly). Apparently the following clip with Alex contains an explanation as to why he won't be on there anymore. RT also seems to have done some bad press on him recently; quite unlike them, who used to have him on as an "expert" (lmao). Anyone here have the guts to look into this, watch Alex' clip, and tell me why there's a scuffle? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:29, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Alex Jones debates David Duke — what is this I don't even[edit]

I've only seen a minute of this and I'm already posting it. This is so fucking bizarre to watch. It's a patently loaded situation, and you can tell Alex is well aware. The whole start if the video is Alex contorting, putting out a major disclaimer in an attempt to distance himself from the guy he's about to have on his show.
Two sides of the far right that, as far as my limited understanding goes, pretends the other one doesn't exist are now sat down together to "debate". I've no idea where this discussion will lead, if anywhere.
And secondly; in the first minutes, Alex Jones actually claims that he was offered a slot on the Howard Stern show? The hell? What are the odds on that being true?
That's not even a quote mine, or part of someone else's questioning. Alex is sweating bullets to the point that he just blurts it out on his own accord. I'm hoping the rest of the video turns out to be a similar trivia goldmine. Assuming I can stomach watching more than five minutes of this. Guh.
Also — not to fall into the ol' Nazi trope of "argument from caricature" — and I don't know if it's just the lighting or whatever, but how the hell does Duke look like this? I'm not even talking about skin color — just in terms of like image overexposure, the guy looks completely alien, atleast in the thumbnail.
I mean, normally, Alex doesn't exactly pass for anything but a big fat white guy, yet he comes off looking brown as a teabag compared to Duke in this thing, what with his chrome hairWikipedia and glow-in-the-dark beard. I dunno — maybe this is just how pareidolia works and I'm a fucking idiot.
Or maybe Duke is such a little man that he's actually fiddled with his webcam settings (an easy thing to do) to try and "bring out the white". *shudder*
I've no idea what's going on, but I'm trying this. Here goes nothing, kids. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:30, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
Ok, so, a few minutes in, and it's all a bunch of super-folk evolutionary psychology out of Alex. I just noticed this thing is two hours long. Oy vey. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:54, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
At about 3:30, Alex talks about what he percieves to be a (quote) "christian, western ethic of transcending tribalism" — in other words, The White Man's BurdenWikipedia? Facepalm Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:57, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
5:43, an absolutely insane quote from Alex. Verbatim: "So yes, there's a war on white people.". Alex, for fuck's sake Facepalm
How is this even a "debate"? Alex' starting speech has been to embrace most, if not all, of the edgiest Alt-right fantasies. What the hell is going to be left for Duke to say? Ruminate on the Holohoax indefinitely? This "debate" seems more like the two hands of the same body playing thumb war, if not outright brofisting. Tsk. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:01, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
At 6:38, Alex claims that "political correctness" is the actual cause of class warfare. Yes, you read that correctly. Let's call that a rather novel take on Marx, shall we. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:16, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
After talking completely out of his ass for a bit...
(incomplete quote from 6:51): "...whipping up gigant, exported populations to break and further destroy the west in an act of genocide..."
...Alex actually manages to allude to the fact that all supremacist movements are indeed supremacist movements (about 7:04). Congratulations. Now, this was buried under a lot of hooey — and Alex? I certainly don't know that Al Sharpton is the (quote) "mirror image" of David Duke, dude. And Duke certainly should not "have his own show on MSNBC". Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:29, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
About 8:03 to 8:25, Alex literally says not only that "the left" NEEDS David Duke, but that "the left" is (quote) "a THOUSAND TIMES MORE WICKED than David Duke is" when it comes to their hatred of black people. He really foams at the mouth when he says it too, like some real baptist preacher. Around this point, I'm about a **** hair from giving up on this whole thing, to be perfectly frank. What's left to debate? "The jewish question"? Facepalm It's indeed true what Christopher Hitchens once said; that all bigots and frauds are brothers under the skin. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:46, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
9:03 is where Duke enters. And where I shut off, atleast for now. It appears that his first reaction is to say to Alex "Everything that you've been ranting about — the NWO, divide and conquer and rooting out the enemy of all mankind — is perfectly true, BUT, who is THE REAL hidden elite in society?" Oh, brother. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:46, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Lessons learned from Trump's InfoWars interview[edit]

Some notes, post-rewatch:
  • 0:05 — Alex brags about having had Matt Drudge (of all people) on the show. Truly a meeting of the minds, I'm sure.
  • 1:00 — Alex rehashes Trump's claim that radical muslims (not just muslims) were celebrating in New Jersey (among other places) [as the towers were coming down on 9/11]. Kind of a bold statement. Alex also says something about having footage of Dan Rather (?) in this context.
  • 1:30 — Trump's reply is not to question Alex' above given account of events, but to endorse it as being entirely factual. Indeed, Trump even adds a personal anecote wherein he claims that multiple witnesses came forward to him and said (quote):

Mr Trump, I saw it myself, I was there [in Paterson, New Jersey]. I saw it myself, Mr Trump — I was there.

Worth nothing is that based on this quote, the witnesses appear to share speaking mannerisms with Trump.
  • 1:45 — Interesting quote. Trump says to Alex, "People like you and me can't [apologize] so easily". Yeah, that particular shortcoming comes with the personality disorder passion.
  • 3:15 — Trump claims that Obama is over somewhere "celebrating global warming". Like, literally celebrating the looming threat of climate change. Now, I've only heard of (on the one hand) people who understand that climate change is a scientific fact and, as such, express legitimate concern, and (on the other hand) people who deny that climate change is even occuring. Obama'd have to be the first to allegedly know that it's happening and to celebrate that it is.
  • 4:40 — Here's a real kicker. Trump claims not just prescience of the 9/11 attacks, but indeed foreknowledge that Osama Bin Laden would turn out to be the guilty party. Further, Trump also claims to have written verbatim that Osama should be taken out [while there was still time].
Now, sure — 19 months before 9/11, Trump did happen to write a book touching on a wide range of topics pertaining to American politics (called The America We Deserve) in which he MENTIONED quite A LOT of things, including the 1993 WTC bombing (being a skyskraper-owning New Yorker himself), and in which he "predicted" that some terrorist attack way bigger than the 1993 WTC bombing was bound to happen sooner or later.
Even crummy BuzzFeed found this nugget of clickbait too good to resist (and as they note, his "prediction" actually specifically involved the detonation of nuclear weapons in a major US city — not anything resembling 9/11, aside from the attack being a suicide mission), lazily taking the opportunity to endorse Trump's nostradamian moves as basically real in exchange for tasty clicks.
Here's the vital part, though (which BuzzFeed fails to mention). In a segment of the book unrelated to his brief mention of the 1993 WTC bombing, Trump instead discusses the 1998 US bombing of terrorist camps in Afghanistan and Sudan. This entire portion consists of the following (full quote from page 304):

The UN inspectors have done their work, everything’s fine, not to worry. The next day the bombing begins. One day we’re told that a shadowy figure named Osama bin Laden is public enemy number one, and U.S. jet fighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan. He escapes back under some rock, and a few news cycles later, it’s on to a new enemy and a new crisis.

AFAIK, this is all he really says about Osama. Note also that, regarding Osama, there's nothing about taking him out, or that he is going to attack the US. Yet Trump claims in the above viewable InfoWars interview to basically have known ahead of time, to have tried to warn the people, and to have been sabotaged by liberals failed.
One is forced to ask; considering that Trump knew the future ahead of time, shouldn't he have tried to be more clear than just shooting off some vague details in passing? If he really knew (or was convinced) — being a billionaire who people actually listen to — wouldn't it be reasonable to have expected a louder message from him on this topic? Or maybe that's just unfair hindsight bias on my part. Facepalm

You were the only leading American figure who openly said "Do not go to war in Iraq".

Alex claims this one-man peace movement led the struggle throughout "2001, 2002 and 2003", until the anti-war movement would finally consist of anyone but a lone, brave Donald Trump.
It's strange; I was just 10 years old in 2001, but I really do forget that time when Trump was the only person in America who wasn't championing the Iraq invasion outright. You remember that time? Also, note that Trump fully accepts Jones' description of events, finding nothing worthy of correction in Jones' characterization.

The Russians started hitting the oil for one month and ISIS is already rolling over. So Putin is already following your strategy. You know Vladimir Putin well.

  • 14:35 — Cringe alert! Alex blows his own whistle a little too hard, and suddenly it's very obvious that he just got himself caught somewhere between lying and exaggerating wildly. Trump picks up on it instantly; he knows. He knows.
Just immerse yourself in Alex' own 1+ second long mid-speech pause (and observe Trump's reaction to it). Facepalm
For those that can't stomach watching this spectacle (Alex' liar pause is truly the worst ever), the quote in question is this (said by Alex):

I wanna come to this point next, because I know you're smart Sir. And I know you also, though — you don't dumb your message down, but you keep it at a mid-level so the general public and the establishment as well can get it, but let's get down to brass tacks. I routinely talk to the [SUPER AWKWARD PAUSE] top generals! Special forces. Uhm... Pentagon. Currently uh, out of the pentagon, CIA — as I know you do [too]. We'll just leave it at that.

"We'll just leave it at that" <- Nice save, dude. Smooth transition. Guh, it's really so cringe it makes me shudder! Facepalm
  • 20:45 — Alex makes a complete jackass of himself, forcing Trump to basically explain that the whole Clinton witch hunt is obviously just a bit, and that in real life, these top names all ultimately dine around the same table. It's like Jones doesn't have a clue how people work. Seriously — dat feel when Trump is made to seem sensible next to Alex, by Alex.
  • 22:55 — Trump names Ronnie Raygun as his all-time favorite president (and appears to have based his slogan on Reagans' "Let's Make America Great"). If only Trump would embrace his inner RINO and give us a silver lining in all this... Sigh.
  • 25:20 — This is the best thing ever. An actual InfoWars ad with such a profound "4AM TV-shop ad" vibe that it could just as well have been made by Tim & Eric. It even uses the shitty echo effect for "ILLUSION OF CHOICE!!!". Also, actual "Matrix" and "programming" terminology is employed. If you only watch one thing out of the actual interview, watch this part. Words cannot do it justice.
  • 26:40 — Alex and Trump fawn over Roger StoneWikipedia, and interestingly, we're told that he's the link between Trump and Alex. Turns out, as both Trump and Alex say outright, it was Stones' idea that Trump even go on InfoWars and give an exclusive interview in the first place (because Stone is a Jones fan). Thanks, Stone.
  • 28:10 — Your typical dime-a-dozen Trump quote, this time on the art of being humble:

I won't take full credit, but I will take 99.9% credit.

  • 30:35 — Winged words from Trump. Trump to Alex:

I just wanna finish by saying your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down. You'll be very, very impressed — I hope — and I think we'll be speaking a lot, but you'll be looking at me in a year, or two years — let's give me a little time to run things, but — a year into office you'll be saying "Wow, I remember that interview! He said he was gonna do it, and he did a great job". You'll be very proud of our country.

That's the POTUS saying he'll be "speaking a lot" to Alex Jones (of all people). Talk about an important Russian connection into the White House, lmao — the guy wasn't made a recurring gag on FSBWikipedia RT for years on end for nothing. Just saying.

If I recall correctly, there's not much new in that 10-something minute gap between the bullet points. I could be wrong (I still have a fever, stupid influenza), but as I recall it, it's nothing spectacular. Just more Hillary bashing, Jones being a **** lunatic, Trump being wishy-washy on Putin, amateurish geopolitical discussion, et cetera. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:56, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, and don't forget stirring that vocal drink with Alex' raspy preacher-voice, too. Regarding the timestamps — which ones don't match, exactly? I'm certain that the vast majority do. Keep in mind that I've chosen even numbers, not exact seconds (because that becomes quote miney), so in some of them, you're expected to listen in for 30-60 seconds before it really gets to the thing I write about.

I included these videos. It's hard to understand the crazy of Alex Jones without watching some of his videos. I think that these three perfectly summarize Jones, without giving him any traffic.

Wow, how was it? Never knew that much about the Church of the SubGenius, myself (but I'd love to know more). Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:03, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Way back when, I went to a lot of San Francisco underground scene events. A lot of these events had people who were SubGenii, including a couple of old timers, namely Puzzling Evidence (amateur videographer) and Dr. Hal / Dr. Howland Owl. These two also did a late night radio show, also called Puzzling Evidence. Anyway from what I can remember, the Devival featured SubGenius rants interspersed with the odd & sometimes risque entertainment, and impromptu pot smoking in the lobby. I think Ivan Stang showed up but he didn't say much. One of the more memorable statements was to the effect that if anyone ever got to the point of actually believing the SubGenius schtick, that the Church would deprogram you itself. — Unsigned, by: Bongolian / talk / contribs
I've been a card carrying SubG since the nineties or so. There were a couple of Devivals in Baltimore in 2007-2008; at them, I finally got to meet Rev. Stang and Rev. Susie the Floozy, among others, in person, after many years of enjoying their various media. Nice people and a great time. For a newcomer I recommend checking out their various books, and the archives of Hour of Slack here, and here. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 02:52, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Child custody[edit]

Jones is currently involved in a child custody case with his ex-wife, Kelly. Alex's lawyer claims that he's just a performance artist and shouldn't be judged by his on-air persona. Kelly claimed that Alex is unstable, and that "I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress." (i.e., Rep. Adam Schiff)

The judge has approved at least some Infowars material as evidence for the case, including a clip that showed Alex grooming his son to be his successor on the show. [3] Bongolian (talk) 18:37, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Alex Jones on the next civil war[edit]

lex Jones: “The first shots of the second American civil war have already been fired,” and it will be “unstoppable until they’re burning down all the cities.” In a June 14 video posted to Infowars, Alex Jones said that the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) meant “the first shots of the second American civil war have already been fired.” Jones blamed “all these betas” in the mainstream media for advocating violence against Republicans “over and over again.” Jones noted that he has “studied history” and found that “war is actually run by betas” seeking government benefits; this “curse of the betas,” Jones said, is “unstoppable until they’re burning down all the cities and killing each other.” [Infowars, 6/14/17] Fuzzy.

"You see, 666 is a doubling of 33. And 33 is pi."--Alex Jones. This is an interesting Quote. It expresses two false statements in twelve words. i.e. twice 33 is not close to 666, and pi is nowhere near 33, even if one interpolates a badly needed decimal point.

Meta-crankery (i.e. Face/OffWikipedia WAS A DOCUMENTARY)[edit]

'Meta-crankery', meaning: a crank video featuring on the talkpage of another crank (AJ). So far, so good. This time, however, it's a different crank (i.e. not AJ) who is cranking on about the titular crank. I'm a master of succinct clarity, I know.

Also, what's funny about the thumbnail: the moment I first looked at it, I thought for a split second "Huh, those two guys do kinda look alike". Well... Clickbait Spoiler alert: it's AJ on both pictures. No, really.

As in; the video thumbnail is clearly implying — via method of comparative analysis — that there may exist certain unsettling similarities between Alex Jones (on the one hand), and Alex Jones (on the other).
