Alex Jones is a very contentious figure in the US alternative media. He ran a highly popular features show called Info Wars in which he tackled issues across the US in his own imitable style. He became infamous for his refusal to believe that the mass killings in Sandyhook, 2012, in which Adam Lanza murdered 20 children ranging from 6 to 7 years old, as well as 6 members of staff, really happened. Jones later retracted his statements that expressed disbelief.
In this extended interview, Joe Rogan questions Jones about the Sandyhook episode, as well as the resultant fall out which saw him banned from YouTube, Facebook, Apple and Spotify. There is no doubt that Jones is a conspiracy theorist. It’s this which made his show so popular. There are millions of US citizen who understandably refuse to believe what their government tells them. Jones tapped into that demographic and ruthlessly exploited it. It’s unfortunate that some of what he said was true, as the later discrediting of Jones led to a similar fate for the questionable incidents that he addressed.
Rebel Voice is of the opinion that anyone instinctively who believes the US government version of major events is gullible in the extreme. Few governments tell the truth about incidents that will reflect poorly upon them. It’s a method of self-preservation. Catastrophes, such as 9-11, have so many questions surrounding them that are not being answered. Governments are not beyond killing their own citizens in false flags attacks. The very idea that a government would do such a thing is so abhorrent to citizens that most refuse to believe it possible. However, burying your head in the sand will not bring justice, nor prevent government crime. Ultimately, Alex Jones lacked discipline and took his opportunism too far. He let his followers down.
Joe Rogan does not stand back when raising these issues. This is an interesting look at Alex Jones and his excuse-making. It’s also a sobering reminder that there is a massive hunger for truth in the US and across the world. Jones merely tried to sate it. He failed by becoming one of the crazies who bring embarrassment to all who question the much-promoted official version of events. That might just be his only lasting legacy.
