If there’s one thing that can be said for Alex Jones, it’s that any time you need a laugh you can listen to just about anything he has to say on just about any subject to easily achieve that goal. Not one to disappoint, his reaction to the shootings at the Navy Yard on Monday was a another gut-buster. After listening to his convoluted reasoning as to how the government was going to find some way to tie it to him and Infowars, one has to wonder about the struggle going on inside his head between his megalomania and his paranoia. Namely, which is the stronger of the two?
He can be excused for saying there were multiple shooters since Monday afternoon it was being widely reported that there had been two and possibly three shooters. It didn’t take long though for him to launch into his loony, baseless conspiracy theories though.
He told his listeners,
“If you want to wonder how big this radio show is, even separate from the website, it’s the fact that they try to pin, I’d say, about half the major crimes, we get brought into it. It’s because we’ve got their number, we know who the globalists are, we know what their program is. And they’re very concerned that we be discredited so that people will not look at what we cover on the radio show, the Infowars nightly news and on the websites.”
Jones goes on to explain that the incident had “patsy written all over it,” positing that this was a drill prearranged by some nefarious forces within the government in which they simply executed several of the “participants” involved in the exercise for the sole purpose of “getting” him. “This is how you would stage a false flag, and then you go back and enter part of the FBI team. They responded minutes after, really, but it took three hours for this to start winding down,” he raved.
Alex is a paradox; on the one hand he has such an inflated sense of self that he actually thinks he and his band of lunatics are so important to the government that he can actually fantasize that the Navy Yard shootings have something to do with them — and believe it! Yet, at the same time he has such a terrible fear that the government is plotting against him that he sees a G-man hiding behind every blade of grass. It is hard to believe that these two conflicting neuroses can co-exist within the head of one man.
