Alex Jones' Minions Fight Debunkers

Mostly by criticizing spelling and grammar errors.

Paul Watson, apparently one of Jones' flunkies, also has the nerve to take on 9-11 Deniers Speak:

In the links section, the website carries a You Tube video of Loose Change guru Dylan Avery's appearance on the Jack Blood Show. Mirroring other reactionary hit piece videos against the 9/11 truth movement, the clip slyly juxtaposes victim's family members looking solemn and images from beheading videos against Avery and Blood making dismissive remarks about the official story - implicating that trashing the official story is insulting to the victims. The contrast of the emotionally laden images of crying wives and children with Avery and Blood's light-hearted casual conversation is a trick to deceive the naive viewer into believing Avery and Blood are rude and unsympathetic to the tragedy of the event.


Of course, Avery and Blood appear rude and unsympathetic to the victims because they are in that clip.

He blows one detail here:

We urge our readers to comb through this website for themselves - it won't be long before you run across bizarre leftfield arguments (at one point the collapse of the twin towers is compared to two pool balls hitting each other), confounding statements that are an affront to the English language, and outright errors concerning the claims of the 9/11 truth movement.


Of course the billiard ball analogy was made by 9-11 Denier Judy Wood, and is still linked on the "Scholars" for 9-11 Denial website.

This article is a good one, from one perspective. It is reassuring to me that their movement will spin its wheels forever, with people like this guy on the frontlines.

Because laughing at people who back away from knives is so respectful for the victims.

It's sad. When you have no other logical argument just attack spelling and grammer.

images from beheading videos

I don't think he got the point of their inclusion.

Dylan does a perfect job of this ALL ON HIS OWN!!

These people really are retarded.

They opnely laugh at hijacking victims...

They mock those who made phone calls to loved one...

They accuse a Pentagon employee of letting his child die...

They accuse dead people of working for the government...

And then they honestly can't imagine why people think they're disrespectful.

There really is a massive disconnect with these people.

I have to give Alex Jones credit for one thing, though: he really does have minions. Wouldn't it be cool to have your own minions?

Yup, you could use them to fight people while you laughed maniacally on your throne of skulls in the background.

I was thinking more along the lines of "while you twirled your handlebar mustache." But that works too.

It is interesting to note that this "debunking" movement if you can even call it that is actually made up of random volunteers who are just sick of these people's antics. While they call us "shills" and government agents, we come from radically opposite political viewpoints, different nationalities, and even live in different countries.

So it seems that the only minions sent to do their master's bidding are those of Jim....I mean ALEX Jones.

Any day now they will be setting up a commune and drinking the blue koolaide.

You are probably joking but I think he could do that if he wanted to. Wouldn't most Jones-followers(Alex) WANT to kill themselves anyway? In Jones' world, EVERY major event is a coverup, everything is a lie, every person's life is nothing but a collection of falsehoods created by shadowy, omnipotent leaders from behind the curtains.

Seriously, look at this guy's worldview- Prison Planet. Does that sound like the way you want to view the world?

They're already dead inside.

Their inability to deal with life's uncertainties is so crippling that they have to invent evil entities that really run everything. Even at the cost of living in constant fear of things that don't exist. Even when it means devoting yourself to nutcases and charlatans like Alex Jones.

Conspiracy theorists are unable to enjoy the simplest pleasures in life, because they must constantly be on the lookout for the boogeyman that lurks around every corner.

They are elitist, humorless drones. They are intolerable company, incapable of conversation about anything other than their belief system. Some have thrown away their careers or families because they could not live without the conspiracy.

Nothing we could do to these people could be worse than what they've done to themselves. More than anything else, I pity them.

It is a strange paradox that one can find some kind of catharsis and relief from fears of the random criminal on the street by imagining some super-villain controlling your world. But I suppose the difference is that when you believe such things you at least have the ability to point with certainty at an individual, known person. Whereas the 16 year old punk who shoots you after a failed robbery is totally anonymous.

I would REALLY like to see some qualified pyschologists' opinions on these people, I am curious to see how right we laypeople are about them.

Its unfortunate that the loudest, weirdest, most outlandish members of the "truth movement" are the ones that get focused on.

There are legitimate questions that need answering, and there are obvious lies the government has told that they have gotten away with.

Its a shame that instead of all Americans coming together to put these issues to rest, there is internal fighting over whacky claims about holographic planes and such.
