Irony, delicious irony. Americans Against the Tea Party reported yesterday that the older of the two Boston bombers who was killed was a fan of whackadoo Alex Jones’ BS conspiracy site, InfoWars.
Interviewed on The Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell, Joy-Ann Reid elaborated,
“And we also learned that the older brother was a devotee of the Alex Jones website and conspiracy theory INFOWARS. So you have this combination of sort of radical ideology and increasing religiosity but also buying into a lot of conspiracy theories; 911 truther-ism apparently was a part of the mix; so yea it’s not just websites that are put out by terrorists overseas or you know terror organizations overseas, it’s also conspiracy theorizing right here in the U.S. so it’s a pretty scary combination.”
