Interview on Gavin McInnes show.

The only person that has really distanced herself from Alex is Candice Owens. He gave her a platform early on. But she's clearly angling for the political path so obviously given the narrative it's not wise for her to be seen talking about Alex.

Owen Benjamin in another. But he's a drunk that had a falling out with Alex because Owen makes some comments online about Germans killing Jews that were distasteful. Benjamin has gone from TV actor and comedian to picking fights with everyone while he drinks beer on livestream in his backyard. He also calls Alex Jones a zionist and thinks he's a jew shill.
candice owens is a bitch. she sold out aj and she will sell out Charlie kirk. tried to take on tomi lahren and got whooped.

good 2 see im not the only one who likes AJ. started following him many years ago when looking into waco and continued on and off since then.

if u watch him long enough ull know which topics are serious and which is theatre. what he does is he makes u ask questions and not blindly accept whatuve been told.

these days im mostly a follower of cernovich and pjw. Dont have much time so just watch them on periscope. Its hard to follow aj and infowars since theyve been booted from everywhere. I guess the left achieved their mission.
Yeah I like Cernovich too. Became a fan after the 'Hoaxed' documentary. JPW is good. I like Tim Pool too. Logic and less of an agenda driven narrative.

Exactly. 100% - Enjoy the news parts and the theatre. People that can't see it have either not watched enough or rely on hearsay.

This channel is good. Whomever created it actually segments it so you can pick what stories you want to follow. I don't care for the anti-vax talk but like the censorship stuff + the funny ads/rants. Owen Schroyer in the war room is another that is enjoyable. Has similar charisma to Alex.

It doesn't give you guys pause that you have to sift between figuring out when he's being serious and when he's playing a character?

You take him more seriously than he takes himself. He gets rich, and you get misinformed.

It's easy to understand what is serious and what isn't. What is logical and what is illogical. You wouldn't understand because you only take things from one viewpoint as evidenced by the garbage you post in every thread on this forum.

He wasn't the only person that reported it. Cernovich was the main one pushing it but Alex tends to be the scapegoat - just like he was by twitter suggesting he was the only one that showed footage of a rec manager pushing a kid to the ground (after the kid was assaulting the manager). The reality is Info wars played a big role in slandering Clinton's image in the lead up to the election (a reason why Trump himself appeared on Infowars) so it's no surprise that the MSM and social media platforms went after him. They've been doing it to a number of alt-light and conservatives over the past year - too bad for them because it won't stop trump from winning 2020 in a landslide.

That we can agree on. Very few want to acknowledge it. Imo it's a huge issue and will only get worse as time passes. If we create echo chambers the divide gets bigger. Conservatives and those that trend right will go to gab and others. Left will stay on twitter. That's not good for anyone as it creates anger and tribalism. We should be coming together and discussing issues as adults, with logic and respect. Not - I read this for a second and that means this and now you're a bigot, facist, racist, islamaphobe, nazi...everything under the sun. It isn't helpful to anyone.
I am just now learning the very basics of app development. It sounds fu**in hard to make an app like Twitter on your own but I wish I could. Something like that, but no character limit, an upvote or downvote button for tweets, a dislike button, and other reaction buttons, and the reporting mechanism would be based on 4chan's: you only get banned if you post child porn, someone's sensitive personal information, or copyright material not permitted under fair use. Everyone else is fair game. Free speech and expression for all. If someone's being bullied, they can block them. If they keep making alt accounts to bully someone then that might also constitute a ban.

What rubbish. Its a post hoc rationaliszation you use to keep supporting morons who have been proven to be complete hypocrites.

Also your last sentence is completely irrelevent to the rest of the discussion.

Exactly. It was real until we realised it wasnt and then it was just stirring from the begining. This is completely consistent logical thinking. As long as you have a time machine.
So, he was being serious?
He never said he was stirring. Said he was given a piece of info and ran with it. Has admitted he was wrong. Why is he held to different standards that the other news organisations aren't? Most don't even acknowledge their fu** ups and are also never expected to - Covington kids drama and CNN...What news is 100% accurate all of the time?

Is pizza gate is such and issue where do we fall on russia-gate? 2 big news organisations have been carrying on about that for almost 3 years and continue to do so with no evidence to prove Trump was colluding with Russia. Is that a conspiracy theory then? I see. That's all okay?

He alleged that Hillary clinton and her staffers orchestrated a murder. Are you seriously trying to compare it to that stupid Covington thing?

I suggest you read up on pizzagate...

Child sex ring and human trafficking not murder. Reddit was the source of most of the spread of information (r/the_donald) as well as a twitter account of someone that claimed to be a lawyer. It spread all over reddit, 4chan, 8chan, twitter - Cernovich, Posobiec, CBS anchor, even Andrew Bogut. A number of news sources reported it including Infowars. "Jonathan Albright, an assistant professor of media analytics at Elon University, said that a disproportionate number of tweets about Pizzagate came from the Czech Republic, Cyprus, and Vietnam, and that some of the most frequent retweeters were bots."

99.9% of people new it was bulls**t designed to discredit Clinton in the days prior to the election. Cernovich is known for organising elaborate trolls. But of course it's all Alex Jones and Infowars that are at fault...

What is more of an issue is it pushed to Pedogate which has a number of alarming issues involving people like Spacey, Chris Tucker, Bill Clinton, Epstein, and others.

Does it not get your alarms going that you have to parse between his honest journalism, and his character acting?

So Jones knowingly used the issue of child sex trafficking to discredit a political candidate?

This is the character/commentator you're defending?

No because all media is garbage. It's mostly a narrative driven by higher ups. If you're in the mindset that 99.99% of media is bulls**t why not watch the one that at the very least offers entertainment?! I prefer to do my own research and I never swallow something hook, line, and sinker like you.

Imagine being someone that watches garbage like CNN and MSNBC and thinking they are getting legitimate news :drunk:

At least I watch stuff that offers something and doesn't pretend it's something it is not. Who is the real fool? Someone who enjoys the character that is Alex Jones, or the person in a thread dedicated to him complaining about him...:$

Hang on.

You acknowledge that you do take him seriously some of the time.

Yet at other times you acknowledge he's playing a character.

And you've acknowledged he made up something about child sex trafficking to score points on Clinton.

It's bizarre you're positioning him as somehow different to agenda driven media when by your own arguments, he's a mess.

But he didn't make pizzagate up. He was reporting the news that was already out there. As expressed above.

He isn't a mess at all. He knows exactly what he's doing as do his watchers and listeners. There is a big difference to someone that plays a character sometimes and serious others (Alex) vs. someone that acts like they are serious all the time (99.99% of MSM).

Don't get upset because you can't understand or care to understand. He's a maverick.
