Alex Jones vs. Piers Morgan

This has been mentioned as great on a few blogs I read, so I looked at it with the hope I would see a conservative clowning on a liberal. It’s the usual foolishness. Jones presents various logical arguments to Morgan, who answers everything with the question “How many gun murders in America?” and occasionally “How many gun murders in Britain?”

I was watching “Jeopardy!” in the gym the other day and was shocked to see all the contestants, including a five-day winner, get a not terribly difficult question wrong. I hate to see things done badly, so I will do Jones’ job for him. Yes there are many more gun murders in the US than the UK, but the UK is much more violent on other measures, including stabbings and home invasions, which are quite common there, and specifically because there is no right of self-defense in the UK. Jones said not one word about race, although he could have told Morgan that white levels of violence are the same in countries with and without strict gun control, as are Latin and black levels of violence. Jones is what passes in the US for an outrageous guy, but we can see being outrageous doesn’t include saying anything critical of minorities.

Jones mentioned modern anti-depressants as a cause of violence, and I think he is right here. He said the government did 9/11, and I think he is wrong there. But if you have a ten minute harangue on criminal violence and don’t say anything about race, you are much worse than crazy, you are politically correct.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Jones isn’t a race guy to begin with.

    Both Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh have almost identical voices. You can hear their porcine jowls without having to see them. He’s a blustery blowhard whose information always comes from “an anonymous source.” He’s just fear mongering to sell his crappy merchandise.

    Still, I do agree with Alex Jones that the Bilderberg Group, in conjunction with the Trilateral Commission and Bohemian Grove, are currently working to build FEMA camps to house anyone smart enough to realize that 9/11 was an inside job, and only Ron Paul can save us from the evil Moloch owl God the Freemasons are currently building.

    Compare the homicide rate of both of the UK and the US to Switzerland or even Utah.
