Warning: The video in the link below contains misinformation, missing context, false claims, conspiracy theories, and everything else that would attract attention and rebuttal from Facebook's so-called "fact-checkers."
Come to think of it, though, you could say exactly the same thing about the effluent coming from the Trudeau-bribed Junk News media in Canada. (Watch CHCH "News" if you want an example.)
I first tripped over Alex Jones and Infowars back around 2006. Ironically, I did so by following a link on Facebook!
When I first signed up on Facebook, it was just a curiosity. So I signed on and took a peek around. After a week or so, I had had enough of receiving fake Tim Horton Rims and "pokes" from "friends," to conclude that Facebook was not for me. Facebook was designed for the type of audience that scheduled the game show, "Family Fued," so as not to miss it.
But I then had a sudden inspiration. What if I started searching for "friends" that had keywords like "libertarian" and "conservative" associated with their profiles? What if I could build a network and use it as a soapbox for my own wild analyses? I found lots. I sent out so many "friend" requests that Facebook restricted my activity, telling me that I had to actually "know" these "friends." This is odd, considering that Facebook's ultimate success was fostered by millions of other users doing exactly the same thing as I was doing. The cat video and dinner photo Facebook cohort probably do know most of their "friends." On the other hand, those who employ Facebook as a networking tool have probably never actually had face-to-face encounters with 1% of their "friends."
Come to think of it, these c*cksu*kers have been sticking their noses in to their users' business right from the start. At first they employed a light touch, but when they got big, they really started flexing their muscles. We've seen the same phenomenon with Canada's current Führer. At first, he knew that he was just a charlatan. But after five or six years of seeing the media and the hair-style loving public suck his c*ck, he actually started to think he could walk on water.
Which is not really a stretch, since the obnoxious, megalomanaiacal little charlatan has already convinced himself that he can heal the sick and has the power to control the climate,
Anyway, shortly after I discovered a practical use for Facebook, I came across a link to a guy I had never heard of. His name was Alex Jones and his organization was called Infowars.
I followed the link and sampled the guy. He seemed to be a real nut bar to me, but some of the things he said made a lot of sense.
To make a long story short, I became a regular Alex Jones watcher for about ten years.
I never bought into his whole schtick, but I knew that, in terms of putting the insanity we see around us into some kind of understandable context, paying attention to Alex Jones was a lot more profitable than pretending to be an intellectual urinal, passively guzzling the daily expectorate from the mainstream media. Instead of a stream of contextless soundbites, Jones actually got me thinking. I learned a lot.
Over the next decade, I drifted away from Jones. Not because he didn't provide knowledge and insight, but because so many other thinkers were coming out with fantastic content too.
Anyway, this evening, I revisited Jones for the first time in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It is not necessary to expect complete accuracy from viewing it. The true value I derive from Alex is that he paints a picture of the massive fraud that is being perpetrated by governments and Junk News media that gives me a perfect conceptual template for use in understanding what is being done to us.
It's a pretty good template. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Alex Jones
And by the way, and this addresses the level of respect Facebook actually has for its subscribers.
You see, Alex Jones was one of my Facebook "friends" up until Twitler, YouTube, and Facebook, in an obviously coordinated attack on Jones, opted to erase Mr. Jones. In doing so, they removed him from my "friends" list without even having the decency to inform me that they had made the decision to remove Jones, and others, from my "friends" list, as though they had never existed. Yet this deviously manpipulative corporation still has the gall to send me messages like this one,
