Gilbert and Jones Think Marijuana Legalization is a Liberal Plot

Joel Gilbert, the wingnut who made a documentary claiming that Obama’s “real” father is Frank Marshall Davis (one of the three right wing conspiracy theories about Obama’s “real” father), went on Alex Jones’ show and agreed that liberals support marijuana legalization as a plot to keep people “stunned and stumbling around” so they’ll keep voting for them.

    Well of course it is! It’s to distract from BENGHAZI!!! Or perhaps Ebola?

  • d.c.wilson

    That’s ridiculous. Everyone knows that it’s really a conspiracy by Fritos-Lay to sell more Cheetos.

  • dingojack

    Yes – but what do Gilbert & Sullivan think?

    (It is, at least, as relevant)

    Gee … it must really be working! Look at all the wingnuts wandering around saying batshit crazy things … not least of all Jones.

  • timgueguen

    You’d think Jones would be a believer in the “The government is keeping pot illegal because it’s the key to (your world changing product here)!” theory. I’m sure a lot of his fans do.

    Why would that be necessary, when Fox news has already showed that good old-fashioned lies can accomplish that much?

    Damn, they’re onto us! OK folks go to plan B, pills it is.

    but what do Gilbert & Sullivan think

    I just started mentally assembling a mini operetta around the HMS Pinafore, regarding the adventures of a ship full of 96 metric tons of weed. It’s taking on a bit of water and the bales are swelling, but the captain (a conservative fellow) doesn’t want to hear about it, being convinced his cargo of hemp is not drugs. The showdown scene is a sort of hip hop fusion with Gilbert and Sullivan’s style, in which the crew try to break the bad news to the captain, who stands on the poopdeck and delivers the raucously witty “Just say No To Drugs” ditty, then the pirates arrive and the action gets quite frenetic…

    OT Hey Ranum, not everybody agrees with your assessment of the

    I am the very model of a modern marijuana grower?

    With cat-like breath, upon our toke we puff?

    Three little spliffs are we?

    If I were representative of a particular demographic back in the day, then it was a conspiracy coming from green chile burrito manufacturers that marketed their products in gas stations.

  • vereverum

    Didn’t I read somewhere that the hydrocarbons in the smoke counter the bad effects of fluoridated water? or the poisons in the chemtrails? I forget which one, but I think it’s one of those.

  • Modusoperandi

    People, please! Have you seen The Cabin in the Woods?!


    No! Wait! That movie says the opposite of what he’s saying! I must be in on The Conspiracy!

  • sugarfrosted

    By his reasoning Cocaine should be legalized in order to get us to vote Republican. I mean cocaine is the drug of choice of rich white republicans.

    Also that’s why I vote Republican because I constantly smoke pot… wait I’ve never tried it… uh, so…

  • John Horstman

    If anything, wouldn’t THC’s tendency to increase paranoia in some users under some conditions play right into the Right-wing politics of resentment and fearmongering?


    See, it fits perfectly. Gilbert and Jones should be backing legalization so that they can have something else they can claim the feds want to take away, and as a special bonus, it would even be true this time!

  • Area Man

    It is a liberal plot. A plot to keep innocent people out of jail.

    Well, maybe … but none of the potheads could find their guns and by next morning they will have forgotten about Obama and the DEA.
