godf bless you alex jones
Born in the RSR
Back in the day , over here, we had teachers and preists warning kids that pokemon are devils competing for worship from them and leading them away from the path of jesus.

I wonder if those people are still around and what they make of Pokemon Go. I wonder if they think the demons are actually there and not just on the screen.

The moon really is amazing. It goes up, it goes down. You can't explain that!

I'm going to take over the Pokemon gym on the moon.

Five minutes is way too much time to give this yahoo.

I'm two minutes in and so far he's sounding pretty reasonable.
EvilHomer
He's usually about 80% reasonable, 10% unreasonable, and the remainder is pure, off-the-walls entertainment. AJ is what is known in hipster circles as "a gatekeeper" - he gives you just enough truth to lure you in, then suddenly it becomes all TRUMP this and NUTRA-CEUTICAL that.

Nominal
That's not what gatekeeper means.

EvilHomer
Nominal - Well not entirely, no; sorry, perhaps I should have gone into a little more detail on that point (I was trying to keep it "short" ::embarrassed fluttershy gif::). Gatekeepers are opinion-shapers; individuals who control access to information, and determine what information you, the audience, will and will not focus on. A good gatekeeper (on the ground level; not talking specifically about billionaires here) needs to be charismatic, rhetorically-skilled, and at least somewhat credible - this way, people will keep coming back to him for his opinions. You need to establish trust, and get your audience interested in what you have to say. The trouble is, most (if not all) gatekeepers have ulterior motives - agendas they want to push, agendas which may not always be able to rest on facts and appeals to reason alone. In this case, they must also become spoilers; spoiling the water by dropping little pieces of bullshit in with their truths, redirecting the conversation into channels that are better suited for their agenda.

That's Alex Jones. AJ's basically emerged as the gatekeeper for what establishment rightwing types want the anti-war, Truther, and anti-globalization movements to focus on. Like Chomsky for college students or Jon Oliver for middle-aged television-watchers, AJ is a pressure-valve; he gives just enough reasonable critiques about society to keep disaffected people tuning in and trusting him, but then slips in these little spoilers to keep the conversation going his way - buy iodine, vote Republican, trust Trump and Reagan. More recently, AJ will openly encourage violent revolution, then back-pedal before the lawyers get him (and this, despite the fact that "encouraging violent revolution" is a narrative he's repeatedly accused his mainstream counterparts of pushing). Etc etc. I don't know if this is because AJ is being paid by a bigger gatekeeper (the Kochs, maybe?) to act as an alt-right psyop agent, or if AJ's just a shrewd businessman who wants his product to appeal to as large a demographic as possible (currently, the "talk radio" demographic). I strongly suspect it's the latter, but the end results are the same.


tl;dr:
------
Like OZ says, most (perhaps all?) of what AJ says in this video is fairly reasonable. There *is* a difference between reality and corporate-controlled artificial systems, genuine human experiences *are* important, and Pokemon *does* make you stupid. But my point is: he's not always this reasonable, and the times he's not are important to be cognizant of, as well.

Heh. He said procreation when he meant fornication. Procreation covers everything from insemination to gestation to birth. Ain't nobody watchin' a nine month long video.
Old_Zircon
Where does that happen? I only watched about 3 minutes.

Old_Zircon
I guess I watched less than I thought, because he goes off the rails somewhere before 2:30.

Simillion
the part where he tells you that you should be out living life so that you can have sex was creepy and gross.

chumbucket
Does not disappoint.

i always pictured alex jones as the maintenance man who shows up in the original lawnmower man short story, crawling naked behind the mower eating mouthfuls of grass, a dark green stain splotched across his meaty chest

lotsmoreorcs
oops this was not meant to be a response to misterpulse. are you a terrorist or an anti gay guy? im still confused...weren't you the gaffer on that black dick project? i heard those ar-15s are capable of spraying a lot of people in a confined space...i mean you guys can't procreate so there is an upside to the whole tragedy...if straight people had been killed just think about the thousands of lives that would have been lost throughout history...also think about all the AIDS omar got rid of....i guess the shot into the meat for a while to make sure it was dead...which is what a lot of you faggots do anyways right? can you imagine the haunting sound of all those phones and texts going off throughout the massacre site? just IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME over and over...

misterbuns
paragraphs, homie

ps i dont actually read anything you write

Gmork
and to think, shoebox joe is dumb enough to go after me instead of orcs

There's no reason for him to have so much trouble pronouncing Pokemon.
