Alex Jones Explains How Government "Weather Weapon" Could Have Been Behind Oklahoma Tornado

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by uppityperson (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Media Matters



Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones explained to his audience today how the government could have been behind the devastating May 20 tornado in Oklahoma.

On the May 21 edition of The Alex Jones Show, a caller asked Jones whether he was planning to cover how government technology may be behind a recent spate of sinkholes. After laying out how insurance companies use weather modification to avoid having to pay ski resorts for lack of snow, Jones said that "of course there's weather weapon stuff going on -- we had floods in Texas like fifteen years ago, killed thirty-something people in one night. Turned out it was the Air Force."

Following a long tangent, Jones returned to the caller's subject. While he explained that "natural tornadoes" do exist and that he's not sure if a government "weather weapon" was involved in the Oklahoma disaster, Jones warned nonetheless that the government "can create and steer groups of tornadoes."

According to Jones, this possibility hinges on whether people spotted helicopters and small aircraft "in and around the clouds, spraying and doing things." He added, "if you saw that, you better bet your bottom dollar they did this, but who knows if they did. You know, that's the thing, we don't know."

3. Jones will use *anything* to make outlandish claims and

draw attention to himself.

Unfortunately, that means a fair amount of credible ideas get mixed-in and sullied by this bullsh!t artist.

I will say that I have met my fair share of graying ex-hippies who believe that HAARP is a tool for weather control and world domination, along with contrails. Sometimes its hard not to regard the hippies and the Christian dominionists as a part of the same anti-rationality movement.

8. the difference? they were fringe nuts on a message board

while Jones is being promoted by top Republican sites (Drudge has linked to him as a news source more than 200 times in the past 5 years) and his batshit crazy ideas are the basis of Republican House committee hearings:

10. What it is like inside Alex Jonesís head?





Talking to Alex Jones is like talking to a sensitive car alarm. At the slightest hint of threat he starts yelling and screaming.

We need more people willing to take unpopular points of view because it will improve the national dialogue. But this guy is clearly not into dialogue. He doesnít appear to be in his right mind either.

14. I'm going to make a wild but semi-educated guess that somewhere between 25% to 30%+ of the public

would take conspiracies theories this shrill seriously. Especially in a culture being shaped by the more mainstream sources like Fox News and right-wing talk radio and the Murdock type tabloids where the government is presented as not just inept and corrupt but consciously and willfully devilish.

15. As I am kinda new here...

....I have to say WHO THE FUCK IS THIS WHACK JOB?. After listening to the recording, I assume some tragic head injury combined with LSD exposure and multiple taser discharges. What unbelievable chain of disasters could have come together to hurt this mind this badly.
Does anyone else think that the majority of conversations about this...person, use the phrases "cross-hairs" and "shallow grave' far more often than what would be normal?

21. fox "news" calls this guy an expert

He is a regularly utilized "expert" on fox "news". The right wing in America has gone over the edge with willfull ignorance and racist paranoid delusions. Jones has a long history of racist ideology and paranoid fantasies so it's no suprise that republican voters view him as a trusted voice of reason.

Why do teabaggers hate reality and human life?

22. The insanity is strong in this one

I really hope that those close to him have this whackjob committed to a mental institution for his own good. He really should get the help he needs, but someone has to force him to do it.
