“I'm telling you folks, nerds are one of the most dangerous groups in this country, because they end up running things. But they still hate everybody, because they weren't the jocks in high school. So they play little dirty games on everybody. They use their brains to hurt people. And I'm aware of them. OK? I see you, you little rats!”
-Alex Jones, 2013
Alex Jones is a polarizing figure in politics.
Rising to political infamy in 1999 on local broadcast, he has since broadened his reach to over 160 radio stations via the Genesis Communications Network and through the internet in numerous ways. Funded entirely through wellness products he sells to InfoWars viewers, Alex is easily the most self-made political commentator in modern history. But many events and exposés lead to his blacklisting from the mainstream internet, which made him even more popular then he already was.
I don’t deny the fact Alex is wrong about a lot of things, but certain things he’s discussed like Pizzagate (which states that a lot of Democrats are pedophiles) and NWO victims (the Clinton body count) are showing factual basis behind it, and it’s making people consider the legitimacy of Alex Jones again.
Which is what the mainstream media is afraid of.
InfoWars appeals primarily to conspiracy theorists and extreme skeptics of the government, but it draws others (like myself) who want to see what Alex sees: a corrupt society that’s run by leftist elites who act only in their self-interest.
That’s not a crazy thing to say nowadays, if we’re being honest.
But in 2018, following numerous controversies surrounding his prior remarks on Sandy Hook being a government setup (which it wasn’t) and his social media purging made him into an even bigger star in terms of representing the conspiracy-ridden fringeternet, making the (at this point common) fact that big tech has a conservative bias even more outspoken.
Alex knew how to game the system and he knew (and still does know) more about our country than most intellectual circles. Hell, he predicted 9/11 months before he happened, and he even named Osama Bin Laden as the one who’d plan the attack. And he’d turned out to be right.
He made enticing video titles and thumbnails on YouTube without resorting to clickbaiting viewers. He provided the Genesis Communications Network with his shows for free, which in turn enticed them to spread his views to a large audience. He was a genius marketer and promoter, and he rarely gets credit. That’s why a good portion of his conspiracy theories about health-related products are followed up by promotion of his healthcare products. It made him a rich man, and it enticed him to keep up the theories.
In all honesty, Alex exposes what’s wrong with the media in the most unconventional way possible. He’s honest to the point where you can see the bias in mainstream news outlets. He shows us the depths people (and even businesses) will go to make a quick buck. And despite him claiming he’s genuine in what he says, he portrays a satirical representation of the extremist conservative boomer, skeptical and traditional on just about everything in the world.
For that, you have to give him extreme respect. But it’s up to your political perspective.
