Alex Jones and Bullying by the Establishment Alex Jones and Infowars are getting slammed in a manner that is not persuasive, to say the least. That is why this thread is in Persuasion Techniques. This is a case of what not to do. Take a look at following crap on a sister site Alex owns. You can't see it on Infowars right now because the establishment bullies have triggered a DDOS attack on the site. Infowars.com Site Goes Down Amid Big Tech Censorship Comes as social media giants try to silence political speech ahead of midterms The subtitle is correct. This is all about the midterms. During the past presidential election, Hillary Clinton complained about Alex Jones by name. Also, Clinton's poodle, Mueller is currently targeting Roger Stone in a Hail Mary attempt to make his investigation relevant and influence the upcoming elections. Roger co-hosts his own show on Infowars. Do you believe in coincidences like that? As this thread develops, I will list the crap the crony corporatists and deep state are doing to Alex, but I want to ask you something right now. You may hate Alex Jones or think he is insane. But after being thrown off Facebook, YouTube, ITunes, Spotify, Pinterest, the autoresponder MailChimp and several other major social media sites, including payment processors, all within the same time frame, and now when you go to Jones's own site, Infowars, you get this: ... because hackers are blasting Denial of Service robot attacks on his site so no one else can access it, do you this this is OK? Is this the kind of world you want to live in? Or do you prefer free speech on the Internet? For me, this is despicable and I am weighing my own options about shutting down my own presences at some of the crony corporatist sites like Facebook, etc. For the time being, though, I'm waiting to see what happens. Need I remind folks that this is how it works before authoritarians take over something big? As in the words of Martin Niemöller: Granted, we are talking about the ability to speak on the Internet and not physical imprisonment, but the way this thing is unfolding, it is serious and the pattern is the same. Luckily, Alex's support has grown because of this bullying. The Internet is just too big right now. And since, thankfully, net neutrality regulations have been neutralized, the government does not have its grubby mits on throttling whoever the regulators find objectionable. So despite the cronies and deep state thinking they can guarantee Democratic Party wins in the upcoming midterms by shutting down popular opposing voices (and they are starting to go hogwild with lots of other sites--if you look into this, you will be amazed at the brazenness), I don't think they understand how this will resonate with the typical American spirit. One thing is for sure. They are not persuading anyone by this bullying. They are only singing to their own choir. And, unbelievably, they have accomplished the impossible propaganda-wise. They have turned Alex Jones into a legitimate victim and martyr for a massive victimization story to be used during the elections. Congratulations, idiots. Un-frigging-believable. Now live with the consequences. Michael
Alex Jones in All His Glory If you ever wonder why Alex Jones has such a fervent following, it's not because of the paranoia or constant exposés. There are plenty of people who do that and don't get anywhere near the public Alex does. It's because of moments like the following. I'm speaking of the underlying emotion of goodwill toward humanity (even those he targets). This creates a strong bond, especially with those who are afraid. The emotion emerge periodically in most of the videos I have seen him do, just for a second or few, then he goes back to blasting his targets. Sometimes it goes on for awhile, sometimes it happens a lot in short bursts, sometimes only once or twice, sometimes not at all. But it happens enough to create a background, what in fiction would be called an underlying emotion from his backstory. Frankly, it's a pretty good moment. Granted, seeing Alex Jones in swimming attire is not everybody's cup of tea. Michael
Alex Jones and Glenn Beck I normally do not post rants from Alex Jones (I sometimes post informative videos from him), but this thing has been sitting right on Drudge's page for two days now--in the upper left-hand corner of the mains links. Here's a screenshot where it's now starting to fall a bit. It was actually two links before with different headline names. And here is the video. Man is it a hoot. Beck used to have a great relationship with Drudge. He is learning he makes no friends by, essentially, calling them Satanic and evil and actually meaning it. Now he and his sidekicks are confused about why Drudge would feature this video. Dayaamm! It's a fun show, though. I'm starting to lose my sadness about Beck going south. As to Alex... well... Alex is Alex... There's no curing it, but at least it's consistent... Michael
