“Dude, they were passing out business cards.”
Dave, a friend of mine, was relating his experience several years ago when he was at Duke University and had been attempting to get a few like minded folks in the Duke University Campus Republicans to go heckle Al Gore.
What he found were a bunch of useless, cowardly, nicey-nice, Class President types who were primarily interested in doing something they called “networking” and who were positively horrified at the thought of doing anything so appallingly rowdy as “heckling.”
So Dave went by himself.
That, in a nutshell, is why the left is on the verge of another Red Terror, this time in America.
After years of having the Whore Media choose the “opposition” to their preferred candidates (some Dole or Romney type thing) we have found ourselves in a position where our enemies are so energized and confidant of victory that they no longer feel the need to hide their marxist beliefs behind the genial facade of “liberalism.”
But a lot of people are waking up to the trouble we are in, and one of the main reasons for that is Alex Jones.
I first ran across Alex several years ago after starting my own website where I would post my occasional ruminations about this crazy world. Once I started thinking this way, I started looking for like minded folks, and Alex Jones quickly poped up on my radar.
Alex isn’t perfect. He is perhaps the worlds worst interviewer, with his constant rambling and interruptions, he can make you want to blow a gasket at times. But Alex is genuine. Love him or not, you can’t doubt his sincerity.
A lot of people feel this way, which is why Alex’s show has become the largest radio show on the internet, and why his AM radio show is growing by 3 affiliates a week. His daily audience is over 3 million people, which makes most of these “high falutin” cable news shows, The Piers Morgan Show for example, look like dilettante operations by comparison. No doubt this is why Piers Morgan invited Alex on his show last night.
Piers Morgan, like a lot of supercilious European blowhards (and some American ones as well), essentially hates America. In particular, he hates guns (at least privately owned guns, government guns are OK by Piers). As a result, he uses his cable TV show on CNN to hector and badger Americans about this issue.
Last week, Piers had Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America on. I like Larry Pratt. He knows who the enemy is and he represents his position well. Pratt is a nice guy, and didn’t miss a step when Morgan suddenly blurted out, “You are an incredibly STUPID man!” Like I said, Pratt is a nice man, and there’s nothing wrong with that per se’, but in this fight, we need more.
Piers felt the same way apparently. Having deciding that agitating the gun issue was the ticket to propping up his sad ratings, he deciding to make the leap to Alex Jones. It may have helped his ratings for a bit, but it only made him look the greater fool.
Perhaps he figured that if he made Alex jump through hoops, go through internal checkpoints, and come to the CNN Compound in NY, that he would have the advantage. He should have asked the ladies on The View how that worked out for them a few years back.
Frankly, I have never seen a prominent TV host get so humiliated before. The format had Alex and Piers sitting on stools in the studio, with no table.
From the beginning Alex dominated, sticking his finger in Morgan’s face calling him a “hatchet man for the New World Order.” There were times it seemed that Jones wanted to physically assault Morgan.
Alex’s intellect is often underestimated because so many “intellectuals” these days are more interested with “seeming,” rather than being.” As a result they think that Alex’s steamrolling rhetoric is evidence of a crude and shallow intellect. This conceit often get’s a rude introduction to reality when it confronts Alex. He has a quick mind and strong base of detailed knowledge that he wields like a Kendo Master.
But it is his passion that makes Alex such a valuable asset for our side. Anyone that has ever ran a blog or two knows that it quickly becomes a chore. You might put out an essay in a fit of earnestness about a given issue, but can you do it day in and day out? Alex has done this and more for 18 years, starting on an Austin Texas public access station and building his network bit by bit, year after year. That takes way more energy and commitment than most people have, even if you are getting paid.
This also brings up the biggest blind spot that freedom lovers and liberty fighters have.
They are nice respectable people. They like to listen to nice respectable people. People like Alex shocks them. As a result, they scream and cry. They want NICE guys. They want Mitt Romney. They want to sit down with their Marxist enemies and have a nice rational discussion about why enslaving and dispossess us all is a Really Bad Thing.
Surely, they think, with enough charts and statistics, they can convince those misguided Marxoids to put away their class warfare rhetoric and Red Terror fantasies.
Nice people are worried sick about looking bad. Nice people never speak out of turn. Nice people trade business cards and “network.” Nice people are horrified that anyone on their side would be rude or raise their voice, that’s just uncalled for!
Nice people are saps who get sent to gulags and mass graves.
Alex Jones is the other guy.
All the nicey-nice campus Republicans, polite conservatives and mild mannered libertarians aren’t worth one Alex Jones.
