Alex Jones Goes Apeshit Over Net Neutrality

Now that President Obama’s support for net neutrality has instantaneously forced every right winger to come out against it, Alex Jones delivered a foaming-at-the-mouth tirade against it. Naturally, he went straight for the Hitler analogy because, well, it’s kinda what he does.

Alex Jones is the latest right-wing broadcaster to completely misrepresent net neutrality, telling “Infowars” viewers this week that President Obama’s support for net neutrality will lead to big government tyranny.

Jones, in his typically paranoid fashion, claimed that the White House will use net neutrality to “shut down” his Infowars website along with the Drudge Report, calling it a “high tech version of what the Soviets and the Nazis and the Chinese Communists and Fidel Castro and every other nut ball did.”

And it goes without saying that it will also lead to your children being imprisoned and probably raped by a Kenyan Muslim with Ebola:

ones compared net neutrality to paying the mafia not to threaten your family or your business, creating a “nation of sheep ruled by wolves” who will “put you in government housing pins to run your life, bring you down and imprison your children.”

“Well not me, ever!” Jones declared.

Good for you, Alex.

    Just when did “stupid” become a political philosophy?

  • D. C. Sessions

    John, I’m pretty sure it was when policians found out that it worked.

    A few days ago voters, upset that all of the extra income from the recovery has gone to the very well-off (and most of that to the extremely wealthy) responded by voting for Republicans.

    Need I say more?

    I donwanna live in a government housing pin! Can’t I at least get a needle?

    Pierce R. Butler — the upside of the former is you can always count how many government angels dance on it’s head.

    It’s amusing how much faith guys like Jones seem to have in big business. He never stops to consider that all it would take would be the wrong comment to get to someone’s ears, and the companies he relies on to operate his website, broadcast his show etc. would stomp him flat.

    Doesn’t Jones realize that if net neutrality goes away, his profit margins will shrink?

    Yeah, he’s pretty clueless on that front. But it doesn’t matter, because if it comes to pass, he will wallow in his victimhood. Just like he does now. The important thing is that he’s always the victim.

    #6 – chilidog99 – You’re assuming that he can think well enough to realize that. Or that he’d bother to actually figure out what the issues are. For him, all that matters is that Obama supports it. Anything beyond that is irrelevant to the constant need to rant and rave against that awful man in the White House.

    @John Pieret: “Just when did “stupid” become a political philosophy?”

    Well, certainly by 1963…

    Yeah, I’ve read it and have a copy around someplace. But I sense a difference between anti-intellectualism, where intellectuals are shunned or denigrated, and this breed of so-called opinion-makers, like Beck, Fischer, Savage, Jones, et al., who say the most transparently false and often insanely stupid things about issues and people and aren’t laughed off the public stage. It’s as if the stupider it is the more it’s lapped up.

    Or, maybe, I’m just getting grumpier in my old age.

    Just when did “stupid” become a political philosophy?

    For Alex Jones? At least 20 years ago — i.e. from the day he started on public access television.

    Someone with more video editing skillz than me should take the audio from the infamous “Hitler is furious” clip, and dub it over an Alex Jones rant. I think the two would go well together, and it might even go viral.
