Default Alex Jones, Infowars, Donald Trump and the Charlottesville Collusion

Quote:
Mainstream pundits scratching their heads over President Trump’s latest musings on the white-supremacist terrorist attack in Charlottesville, simply haven’t been paying attention to the media of the presidents’ base. Whilst the first edition of ‘Trump TV’ was released to an almost universally derisory response, being widely dismissed as ‘state propaganda worthy of North Korea,’ the real Trump administration propaganda channel, Alex Jones Infowars, continued in its fawning (North Korea like) adulation of Donald Trump.

Quote:
Although Jones may publicly claim that he is against the far right and he thinks they are idiots, Infowars, especially since, or perhaps just before Trump made his run for the presidency, has been virtually nothing more than one big dog-whistle for the far-right. Where once Jones continually banged on about the New World Order (which of course he billed as a communist/Marxist plot to take over the world,) Infowars main target of hate is now ‘leftists’ which Jones and his team would have you believe is just about everyone that doesn’t support the Trump presidency (including the New World Order).


Quote:
We see here a familiar pattern in the Donald Trump/Infowars axis of insanity. Jones pans out a position with a soft edge (both sides were violent) and a hard conspiracy edge (agent provocateurs, George Soros, the deep state, CIA, Ukraine.) Trump parrots the soft edge of Jones narrative almost exactly, whilst Jones runs with the conspiracy ball as far as he can with a nod and a wink to his listeners that he has the ear of the president and ONLY HE really knows what the hell is going on. Trump doesn’t need to parrot Jones crazier assertions as by parroting Jones soft narrative, his supporters will know that the hard narrative is also implied.
These were excerpts; read the whole story in context: HERE

Alex Jones is a bit over the top at times, but for the most part he has it exactly correct.

The left IS the enemy of people who wish to keep our country whole, intact, and self governed. You on the left don't. We want you out of our country. There is not room enough for the left anymore.

Time to rumble. Time to purge the left from the USA. Soros is the leader of the left here and around the globe. Time to stick it up his azz.

Regards, Kirk

1.Alex Jones is a left winger's parody of what they think a right winger is.

2. The left uses him to make right wingers look like idiots the same way Fox News uses the clowns at various lib-tard universities to make left wingers look like crazy loons.

3.He is a conspiracy so anything he says shouldn't be taken serious. He is if the national enquirer or some other tabloid had a show.

Granny says is `cause a buncha drunken sop-heads showed up in town...

Why Hate Came to the Progressive City of Charlottesville
August 17, 2017 — The white nationalists behind last weekend's violent rally found an appealing target in the historic town of Charlottesville, Virginia.
Quote:
That's where Thomas Jefferson founded a university and where an outspoken, progressive mayor declared his city the "capital of the resistance" to President Donald Trump.

For more than a year, the Charlottesville government has also been engaged in contentious public soul searching over its Confederate monuments. The process led to the decision to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee.

All those factors made Charlottesville a symbolically powerful backdrop for what's considered the largest white nationalist gathering in at least a decade. Mayor Mike Signer say the city's debate about race made it a target for people "who don't want to change the narrative."
