When the dust settles, I believe Alex Jones' "out of control" rant will hurt the "cause" he apparently cares so deeply about.

When Ronald Reagan abolished "The Fairness Doctrine", I doubt he envisioned Alex Jones.

At times, Jones' rant bordered on the insane (in my opinion).

If, after watching Jones' rant. I was asked whether Alex Jones should be allowed to own a firearm...I would unequivocably answer..."ABSOLUTELY NOT".

I was switching channels after the game tonight, and caught a repeat of Alex Jones' meltdown.

If his viewers (in the millions) are as unstable and as angry as he is, one of them is (statistically speaking) a "ticking time bomb" with Alex Jones being the "trigger".

From his inability to settle-down long enough to calmly discuss the issues. to his rants about the various conspiracies (the Drug Companies and Prozac along with the Government and 9/11), Alex Jones was out of control.

Alex Jones "angry, paranoid persona" has probably earned him a small fortune. In a nation with a population of 350 Million, less than 1% still translates into a couple of million angry, paranoid listeners.

Alex Jones needs to take a basic course in Government, with special emphasis on the Constitution. Like Alex Jones, Piers Morgan, by virtue of "being human", has the "First Amendment Right" to voice his opinion. docmark: Alex Jones is crazy. Let me repeat that.

Something that is intrinsic about any training is that you loose all your rights and your punished when someone else screws up. It is no wonder because you sign a contract that basically signs your life away. This should not happen with the civilian population.

He has no right to come to America, judge us, and tell us how to live our lives. Jones was correct. The English did try to remove from us our guns and wanted us to remain their slaves--their subjects. That would seem reason enough for Jones to go off on self-righteous Morgan. Jones' loud and angry remarks--naming name after name after name--were absolutely correct. He spoke TRUTH ! Perhaps we all ought to get a little violent when people try to take away from us our Constitutional rights. Jones may be loud, and that may not be "politically correct"; but it is much more incorrect for our elected officials (who have sworn to preserve and protect our Constitution) to be attempting to strip away from us of our rights and especially our right to do something as basic as defending ourselves. You don't have to like Alex Jones for him to be RIGHT ! Instead of maligning Jones, you ought to be thanking him for standing up for your rights!

I wish you would make some method on this site of preventing our comments from being automatically deleted if we push the wrong button. For example, I just wrote the max allowed. It was a serious and thought-filled reply to one replying to me. After previewing it, I clicked "post comment." Boom! The entire post disappeared and I cannot find it.

Pro-Gun Advocate Alex Jones Goes Completely Berserk On Piers Morgan's Show: '1776 Will Commence Again!' Brett LoGiurato | Jan. 7, 2013, 9:55 PM | 63,064 | 348 Email More Share on Tumblr Tweet Email Share on Tumblr

CNN

CNN host Piers Morgan had radio host Alex Jones on his show tonight to talk about his role in creating a petition to deport Morgan because of his views on gun control in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The interview quickly devolved into a mostly one-sided shouting episode from Jones, the controversial figure who has promoted conspiracy theories about the government being involved in both the Oklahoma City bombing and the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Some of the highlights of the interview:

Jones claimed that the recent rape and murder of an Indian student could have been prevented if she had access to a gun. He ranted at Morgan, telling him that taking away guns was not a feasible strategy and would lead to government tyranny. "The tyrants did it! Hitler took the guns! Stalin took the guns! Mao took the guns! Fidel Castro took the guns! Hugo Chavez took the guns!" Following that, he screams: "I'm here to tell you — 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!" At one point in the discussion, he challenged Morgan to a boxing match. "I'll wear red, white and blue and you can wear your Jolly Roger." He accused Morgan of being a "hatchet man of the New World Order." He responded to Morgan's question asking him how many murders were committed in Britain last year with a question of his own: "How many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin?" Morgan went to commercial break clearly irritated: "When we come back, try and answer my questions."

Here's video, via CNN:

Alex Jones knows how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Every week from his studio in Austin, Texas, he dives into red-faced tirades exposing the forces that threaten to enslave all human life on the planet. The conspiracy always boils down to about the same thing: eugenics operations, the militarization of the police, a cabal of wealthy corporations and the United Nations involved in a fiendish plot to control the world.

Five days a week, online and on more than 60 radio stations nationwide, “The Alex Jones Show,” along with a pair of websites he runs (Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com), serves as the tumultuous showcase for his overactive imagination — a worldview governed by logic-leaping deductions and heedless pronouncements. His website is chock full of apocalyptic headlines and ads for products like “recession-proof coins” and manuals on How to Survive Martial Law in America. On the air, he’s given to stream-of-consciousness rants.

Influenced heavily by the conspiracy-minded John Birch Society, Jones ran unsuccessfully for a Texas House seat in 2000 as a Republican but said he doesn’t follow the platform of either of the two major parties. He has described his own politics as libertarian.

Jones has accused the federal government of involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9/11 attacks, said that the Branch Davidian cultists in Texas were purposely murdered by authorities, claimed that FEMA is secretly building concentration camps for liberty-loving citizens, and issued a series of videos with hair-raising, B horror-film titles. A sampling: “911: The Road to Tyranny,” “Police State 3: Total Enslavement,” “The Masters of Terror: Exposed,” “New World Order: Blueprint of Madmen” and “The Obama Deception: The Mask Comes Off.”

Although it hardly seems possible, Jones’ fecund imagination now seems to be sprouting even more conspiracy theories than before.

Last year, for example, after Jared Lee Loughner went on his January 2011 rampage in Tucson, Ariz., killing six and wounding U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Jones told Rolling Stone: “This whole thing stinks to high heaven. … My gut tells me this was a staged mind-control operation. The government employs geometric psychological-warfare experts that know exactly how to indirectly manipulate unstable people through the media.”

It’s simply a matter of finding the truth, Jones says. Or something like that.

In August 2011, he featured on Infowars an article that called the Department of Homeland Security’s year-old “If you see something, say something” terrorism-awareness campaign a racist conspiracy to “characterize predominantly white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists.”

The program, which actually encourages people to consider “behavior, rather than appearance” when considering whether to report suspicious activity, entails a series of public service announcements designed to drive home that point. What piqued Jones was a 10-minute PSA in which most of the “terrorists” are white, while the citizens who report their suspicious activities are all minorities. He milked the issue for at least a month. “What do you think of [DHS’] rebranding that the terrorists aren’t Al Qaeda anymore?” he said on his Aug. 18 radio show. “It’s that veteran, it’s that gun owner, it’s that farmer … it’s that white person. Whites are the new Al Qaeda.”

Besides exploiting racial animosities, Jones’s conspiracy theories often appeal to the fears of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement.

At the movement’s previous peak in the 1990s, the “black helicopter” was a symbol of its cartoonish insistence that the government would soon be coming after freedom-loving dissidents who knew the truth about the New World Order. Jones gave these fears a 21st century update in an October 2011 online broadcast. He obsessed over news that the sheriff of Montgomery County, Texas, had used a federal grant to buy an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (also known as a drone) called the ShadowHawk. The laptop-controlled, miniature helicopter comes equipped with a powerful zoom camera, infrared heat-seeking optics and crowd-stopping cartridges.

To Jones, this was not simply a police department taking advantage of the latest law enforcement technologies but a glimpse at the insidious machinery agents of the New World Order are deploying in the night skies in advance of martial law. “They’ve got large unmanned drones,” Jones warned. “They’ve got small drones. … And they’ve got million-dollar systems up there flying around with cops in control of them, surveilling you. And now they’re mounting them with ground-penetrating radar that looks right through your wall, while you’re on the toilet, having sex with your wife.”

(CNN) -- Was it a debate? A berating? A surreal televised "stunt"? No matter what you call radio host Alex Jones' appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight," one thing is certain: It's generating a great deal of social media buzz.

On Tuesday morning, Jones was a top-trending topic on Twitter as people read about the interview, watched clips online or shared their thoughts after watching Monday night's fiery exchange live.

The man behind a petition to deport Morgan back to the UK for expressing his views on gun control went on the attack, calling the CNN host "a hatchet man of the new world order."

"1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!" Jones yelled. "It doesn't matter how many lemmings (mindless followers) you get out on the street begging for them to have their guns taken! We will not relinquish them! Do you understand?"

Jones: Don't dare take our guns Jones: More guns mean less crime Marine: I won't register my guns Will the new Congress act on guns?

Morgan has pushed for stricter gun control regulations since a gunman killed 27 people before committing suicide last month in Newtown, Connecticut -- 26 of them in a mass shooting at an elementary school, including 20 children.

"I'm in favor of a nationwide ban on military-style semiautomatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines," he said as he opened his Monday night show, before introducing Jones.

Alex Jones: "The Republic will rise again when you attempt to take our guns"

Watch: 'Deport Piers Morgan' host's rant, Part 1

Jones' petition, posted on the White House website, accuses Morgan of being "engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment." It has more than 100,000 signatures.

Morgan prefaced his confrontation with Jones with a live report on Monday's testimony in a preliminary hearing for Aurora movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes and a live interview with relatives of two victims who died in a hail of bullets from a military-style rifle in that shooting in July.

"I appreciate you having your First Amendment right. I am glad you are speaking out," said Dave Hoover, whose nephew died in the movie theater.

The White House also made reference to First Amendment freedoms, in a statement Monday night.

"The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold, and we will respond to this one," spokesman Jay Carney said, referring to petitions on whitehouse.gov that get at least 25,000 signatures. "In the meantime, it's worth remembering that freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy."

'World tyranny' warning

Jones thanked Morgan for having him on the show, and then said he and others started the petition to point out that "we have all of these foreigners" and globalist forces, including "megabanks that control the planet," trying to take away American guns.

"When they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny," he said.

Morgan's attempt to interject questions ran up against Jones' heated chatter, leading up to a crescendo with Jones reciting a list of despotic world leaders who he said took away guns: Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez.

Live Blog: "Guns in America," a discussion

As Jones continued, Morgan looked on, tight-lipped and silent.

After 2½ minutes, Jones rounded off his monologue with a friendly offer to take Morgan out shooting, so he could "become an American" and "join the Republic."

He also offered to climb into a boxing ring with Morgan. At the end of the interview, he imitated the Briton's English accent, before declaring him a "Redcoat" who should go back to where he came from.

Morgan asked: "Are you finished?"

Jones said: "Yes." Then he began a tirade against makers of antidepressant drugs.

Jones said he owns about 50 weapons. His radio show can be heard on 140 radio shows around the country, he said.

Morgan: No better advertisement for gun control

Morgan says Jones' rant backfired, making Morgan's point for him.

"I can't think of a better advertisement for gun control than Alex Jones' interview last night," he said Tuesday on CNN's "Newsroom." "It was startling, it was terrifying in parts. It was completely deluded. It was based on a premise of making Americans so fearful that they all rush out to buy even more guns."

"I think silence was the best weapon against him because he just dug himself an ever bigger hole," Morgan said, adding that Jones "spouts dangerous nonsense."

Jones, on his website infowars.com, had an image of Morgan dressed as a "Redcoat" next to Jones himself dressed as a "patriot."

A summary of his plan for Tuesday's radio show said he would discuss "his effort to defend the Constitution and the Second Amendment from attack by the establishment media as the government prepares its latest gun-grabbing assault on law-abiding Americans." The description adds that through the interview, "we have put the globalists on notice."

On the program, he said that 95% of people he has heard from "think that I just told it like it was" and "slammed them hard," delivering an important message.

"I have been overworked," Jones added, describing a busy schedule. "But I did the best job I could and I'm proud of the job I did overall."

Responding to Morgan's depiction of how the interview went, Jones asked whether that was because he is "a hillbilly that won't be your slave and knows history."

He described Morgan as being like "a mannequin, a vampire."

'Piers Morgan can't understand being American'

Though many found fault with Jones' performance, some found common ground with his arguments.

"The tact with which Jones presented himself with was inexcusable. However; looking past that (I know... hard to do especially after that English accent he so offensively portrayed)... I have to say that his statistics were much more compelling than Piers's. I mean, ok, gun violence is higher here in America... but it has a lower violent crime rate than those countries with banned fire-arms?" PhilipCabibi wrote in the comments section of this article.

"I see where Jones was trying to go, but unfortunately, he presented his facts in such a manner that it will turn most off to them. Which is unfortunate... because no matter how rude someone is, it doesn't change facts and it doesn't change history."

'Meltdown' or 'punching out?'

Reactions on social media were blunt.

New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen called the interview a "meltdown" and called Jones "revolting."

James Poniewozik, TV columnist for Time -- which, like CNN, is part of Time Warner -- wrote, sarcastically: "Shocking: You reward a lunatic on TV for pulling a stunt," and he fails to "behave with civility."

Facebook user Steve Spark made similar comments in a CNN discussion. "If you have a nutjob as a guest, you can't be surprised when they act like a nutjob," he wrote, adding, "Some might say it makes for good TV, but I think it's just embarrassing."

The Huffington Post summarized the program this way: "Piers Morgan's pro-gun guest goes absolutely nuts at him."

Jones retweeted a supportive note from Gerald Celente, who has 36,000 followers. "Bravo," the tweet said, praising Jones for "punching out CNN Presstitute Piers Morgan."

CNN iReporter Jason Asselin posted a video saying he believes that Morgan has no right to debate gun control in America, and that only U.S. citizens should do so.

Piers Morgan: Sandy Hook must be a tipping point for change

Jones' appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight" was followed by an interview with famed attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.

"We lawyers refer to people like that not as witnesses, but as exhibits," he said of Jones. "He was an exhibit, like a piece of evidence. You see him speaking and you say to yourself, 'I don't want that man to have a gun.'"

Dershowitz said Americans who want even-handed gun policy should not leave the arguments up to gun advocates such as the National Rifle Association and Jones without speaking up themselves.

"We have to fulfill what the real meaning of the Second Amendment is: reasonable access to guns for self-protection and for hunting. And there's no room in America for these semiautomatic, automatic and other kinds of weapons that are simply designed to cause mass havoc," Dershowitz said.

In addition to the limitations on military-style rifles, Morgan wants gun show loopholes closed and demands that gun dealers be required to run background checks on purchasers at shows.

He also advocates an increase in federal funding for mental health treatment to anyone who needs it.

Morgan recently wrote a column in the Daily Mail saying that for every critic, he has had many Americans thank him for speaking up in favor of gun control.

"If you don't change your gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous carnage, then you don't have to worry about deporting me.

"Although I love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent first -- and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years' time -- seriously consider deporting myself," he wrote.

Alexander Emerick "Alex" Jones (born February 11, 1974) is an American talk radio host, actor and filmmaker. His syndicated news/talk show The Alex Jones Show, based in Austin, Texas, airs via the Genesis Communication Network on over 70 AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations across the United States[2] and on the Internet. His websites include Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com.[3][4]

Mainstream sources have described Jones as a conservative[5][6][7][8] and as a right-wing conspiracy theorist.[9][10][11][12] Jones sees himself as a libertarian, and rejects being described as a right-winger.[13] He has also called himself a paleoconservative[14] and an "aggressive constitutionalist".[15][16] Jones has been the center of many controversies, such as the one surrounding his actions and statements about gun control after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting,[17] and has accused the US government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing[18] and September 11 attacks.[19]

Jones was born on February 11, 1974 in Dallas, Texas,[20] and grew up in the suburb of Rockwall. His father is a dentist.[18] He attended Anderson High School in northwest Austin, Texas. Jones was a lineman on his high school's football team.[18] As a teenager, he read Gary Allen's None Dare Call It Conspiracy which strongly impacted him, and which he calls "the easiest-to-read primer on The New World Order."[21] After graduating high school he briefly attended Austin Community College.

He began his career in Austin with a live call-in format public-access television cable TV program. In 1996, Jones switched format to KJFK, hosting a show named The Final Edition.[22] During this time, Ron Paul was running for congress and was a guest on Jones' show several times.[23] The two share many beliefs and have been friends since then.[23] In his early shows, he frequently talked about his belief that the US government was behind the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing,[24] using the incident to put down a growing "states rights movement.[25] In 1998, he released his first film, America Destroyed By Design.

In 1998, Jones organized a successful effort to build a new Branch Davidian church as a memorial to those who died during the 1993 fire that ended the government's siege of the original Branch Davidian complex near Waco, Texas.[26] He often featured the project on his public-access television program and claimed that David Koresh and his followers were peaceful people who were murdered by Attorney General Janet Reno and the ATF during the siege.[22]

In 1999, he tied with Shannon Burke for that year's "Best Austin Talk Radio Host" poll as voted by The Austin Chronicle readers.[27] Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM for refusing to broaden his topics, his viewpoints making the show hard to sell to advertisers, according to the station's operations manager.[22] Jones argued: "It was purely political, and it came down from on high", and, "I was told 11 weeks ago to lay off Clinton, to lay off all these politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing the Marines, A to Z."[22] He began spreading his show via internet connection from his home.[24]

In early 2000, Jones was one of seven Republican candidates for state representative in Texas House District 48, an open seat swing district based in Austin, Texas. Jones stated that he was running, "to be a watchdog on the inside."[1] He aborted his campaign and withdrew before the March primary when polls indicated he had little chance of winning.

In July, a group of Austin Community Access Center (ACAC) programmers claimed that Jones used legal proceedings and ACAC policy to intimidate them or get their shows thrown off the air.[28]

In 2001, his show was syndicated on approximately 100 stations.[24] After the 9/11 terrorist attack, Jones began to speak of a conspiracy by the Bush administration as being behind the attack, which caused a number of the stations that had previously carried him to drop his program.[29]

On June 8, 2006, while on his way to cover a meeting of the Bilderberg group in Ottawa, Canada, Jones was stopped and detained at the Ottawa airport by Canadian authorities who confiscated his passport, camera equipment, and most of his belongings. He was later allowed to enter Canada lawfully. Jones said regarding the reason for his immigration hold, "I want to say, on the record, it takes two to tango. I could have handled it better."[30]

On September 8, 2007, he was arrested while protesting at 6th Avenue and 48th Street in New York City. He was charged with operating a bullhorn without a permit. Two others were also cited for disorderly conduct when his group crashed a live television show featuring Geraldo Rivera. In an article, one of Jones's fellow protesters said, "It was ... guerilla information warfare."[31]

Reception and impact

Mainstream sources have described Jones as a conservative[5][6][7][8] and as a right-wing conspiracy theorist.[9][10][11][12] The Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Files assert that he has "exploit[ed] racial animosities" to "appeal to the fears of the antigovernment Patriot movement."[32] Jones sees himself as a libertarian, and rejects being described as a right-winger.[13] He has also called himself a paleoconservative[14] and an "aggressive constitutionalist".[15][16]

Jones has been the center of many controversies, and has accused the US government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing[18] and September 11 attacks.[19] Jones was in a "media crossfire" in 2011, which included criticism by Rush Limbaugh, when the news spread that Jared Laughner had been "a fan" of Jones' 9/11 conspiracy film Loose Change.[33] In January 2013, Jones was invited to speak on Piers Morgan's show after promoting an online petition to deport Morgan due to his support of gun control laws.[34] The interview turned into "a one-person shoutfest, as Jones riffed about guns, oppressive government, the flag, his ancestors’ role in Texan independence, and what flag Morgan would have on his tights if they wrestled."[34] The event drew widespread coverage,[34] and according to the Huffington Post, Morgan and others such as Glenn Beck "agreed that Jones was a terrible spokesman for gun rights".[35] Jones' appearance on the show was a top trending Twitter topic the following morning.[36]

As of 2010, he was estimated to have an audience of over 2 million listeners, with a demographic heavier in younger viewers than other conservative pundits.[29] In 2011, he had a larger on-line audience than Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh combined.[33] Author Will Bunch says that Jones was in part a model for Glenn Beck who "synthesized" some of the paranoia of Jones' commentaries into his persona.[29]

Alex Jones is also the operator of several web sites centered on news and information about civil liberties issues, global government, and a wide variety of current events topics. Several of these sites are www.infowars.com, www.prisonplanet.tv, www.prisonplanet.com, and www.jonesreport.com.

He has been able to mobilize his followers to create "google bomb" actions that bring particular terms to the top of search engine listing, a tactic which has then inspired other on line media, such as The Drudge Report to cover the story.[37]

Films

Jones has directed and produced a number of videos detailing his theories of a "New World Order" and his concerns that U.S. national sovereignty and constitutional rights have both been eroded as a result. They also address his views concerning the misuse of government power, corporate deception and collusion between disparate power structures.
