Alex Jones, the crazed new world order conspiracy theorist loon who is part of a group that started a White House petition to deport CNN’s Piers Morgan over the British journalist’s anti-gun stance confronted his target last night and displayed why he’s so easily dismissed as a crazed new world order conspiracy theorist loon. Jones ranted and raved and screamed and shouted and made little sense. At all.
“Hitler took the guns Stalin took the guns, Mao took the guns, Fidel Castro took the guns, Hugo Chavez took the guns, and I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!,” Jones screeched at Morgan. “It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there in the street begging for them to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?”
And that’s just one example from the fourteen minute “interview” that armchair psychiatrists no doubt will be reviewing for years to come.
Jones told Morgan he and his cohorts started the petition “as a way to bring attention to the fact that we have all of these foreigners, and the Russian government, the official Chinese government — Mao said political power goes out of the barrel of a gun, he killed about 80 million people because he’s the only guy who had the guns — so we did it to point out that this is globalism, and the mega banks that control the planet and brag they have taken over — in Bloomberg, AP, Reuters, you name it — brag that they’re going to get our guns as well. They’ve taken everybody’s guns, but the Swiss and the American people and when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, tanks, helicopters, predator drones, armed now in U.S. skies, being used to arrest people in North Dakota.”
“The Second Amendment isn’t there for duck hunting. It’s there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs. Take the woman in India, your piece earlier on CNN earlier, I was watching during Anderson Cooper’s show, didn’t tell you the women of India have signed giant petitions to get firearms because the police can’t and won’t protect them,” Jones ranted:
The answer is — wait a minute, I have FBI crime statistics that come out of a year late, 2011, 20-plus percent crime drop in the last nine years, real violent crime because more guns means less crime. Britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago. Tripling of your overall violent crime. True, we have a higher gun violence level, but overall, muggings, stabbing, deaths — those men raped that woman to India to death with an iron rod 4 feet long. You can’t ban the iron rods. The guns, the iron rods, Piers, didn’t do it, 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, and I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there in the street begging for them to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?
Or, this gem:
You have hoards of people burning down cities and beating old women’s brains out out everyday. They arrest people in England if they defend themselves, that’s on record. My God, you have a total police state. Everybody is fleeing the country because — you’ve had to flee, bud. Yeah, you fled here. Why don’t you go back and face the charges for the hacking scandal?
Let’s all take a moment to remember this is one of the people the pro-Second Amendment nuts look to for leadership. And these people want us to trust them with guns? Good God.
