In the wee hours of Friday morning, as the mayhem took place in Watertown and police were searching for the second bomber, Alex Jones put up a video claiming — of course — that the whole thing was fake and the government had set the bombs. I found it quite amusing and noticed a lot of the same things that Alex Seitz-Wald did.
Jones claims that there were Navy Seals at the marathon site and he could spot them because they were wearing their insignia. Really, Alex? You think that if the government had agents there setting the bombs they’d be wearing insignia that could identify them? Are they that incompetent? Seitz-Wald notices even more:
Jones says Navy SEALs were on the scene and involved in carrying out the attack. He knows this because there were “guys in uniforms” wearing “Navy SEAL caps” all over the finish line. This is his primary piece of evidence, appearing in numerous blog posts and videos across his site. But if you’re executing a secret conspiracy, don’t you think you’d leave the uniform and baseball cap identifying yourself as a member of said conspiracy at home? Why not just wear a name tag that says, “Hello, my name is conspirator #4, Gorge Soros sent me?” The devil is in the fabricated details, Alex, you know that.
The mask slips, Jones says, when the “whole script got screwed up” after CNN reported, and then retracted, that a suspect had been arrested (thanks, John King!). The reason for the change, Jones says, is that the conspirators didn’t anticipate that people would have access to public images of the bombing. Really? The omnipotent globalist regime didn’t think, gee, “I wonder if there will be any cameras at this very high-profile event. You know, the one where thousands of people come with iPhones and dozens of media outlets set up hundreds of camera along the route?” How are we supposed to take the globalist threat seriously when they can’t even get this right.
In the space of few hundred words, InfoWars can’t decide if the media is merely useful idiots or direct co-conspirators. First, the site says the bomb threat at the courthouse after the attack was a pretext to “distract the media,” but states that the “government … ordered the corporate media to ignore the Plan A.” But if you can simply order the media to do anything you want, why create a distraction? Why bother with any of this, really? Just order the media to make the whole thing up, catch the fall guy right away, then kick up your feet with a hot cup of global enslavement and wash it down with some mind-controlling fluoridated water. It’s these kind of internal consistencies that really take the reader out the story.
It should be obvious by now that Alex Jones is part of a global conspiracy to distract attention from the real conspiracy. Jones is being paid to make you think that the government is behind it all so you won’t recognize the genuine conspiracy being carried out by a cabal made up of the Screen Actors Guild and the people who created Angry Birds.
