    'Idiot’ Bilderberg conspiracy theorist Alex Jones disrupts BBC politics show

    Mr Jones, who runs a conspiracy theory website, began shouting and ranting after the Sunday Politics host told him to “shut it”.As he screamed “freedom will not stop, you will not stop freedom” Mr Neil tried to bring the show to a close, telling him he was the worst guest ever, then stifling a laugh and pulling faces as he said: “We have an idiot on the programme today.”

    Mr Jones appeared on the Sunday morning show as the secretive Bilderberg Group - comprising politicians, economists, academics and business leaders - is meeting at a hotel in Watford.

    Just as what so often happens with these types of people in every day discussion, just watch, and listen to how the interview went....



    Jones was supposed to be in a discussion panel on the Sunday show, and just take notice how he constantly interrupts, over talks, and then when he is told that he needs to let the other guest talk, he goes into a shouting rant of self promoting, and blather that is pure nonsense...

    This is not a new tactic to people like him, and the tactic crosses political lines, the other group that so often tries to use this tactic? Progressives.

    And with deeply ideological progressives embedded in our own halls of government today, we see this often on our own shows, when these members are using this, and other tactics to stifle others speech. Even from hosts like Gregory from Meet the Press is guilty of this. (Although in a more muted sort of way.)

    So, let's discuss why we give these people the time of day today....Do they offer anything other than pure entertainment like dancing bears? Do we really get anything out of our own Sunday policy discussion shows when the panels are packed either with 100% like minded lemmings, or at the very least 4:1 progressive liberals vs. one mushy conservative?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Okay, maybe it is me.. but are you defending this right wing nutjob or being critical of him for his behavior?

    What I dont get is, how the hell did he even get into the UK in the first place since he was once banned as far as I remember.

    The reason they are allowed on? Money. People like drama, anger, chaos, and they like crazy, hence why so called "reality" shows are such a big hit and along with that they advertisment that goes along with that. It's a huge cash cow.

    I don't think Alex Jones is a left/right thing. All the people I've met who sympathize with him act just like him (they go into hysterics when confronted). I think it's more a deep ignorance, paranoia and chemical imbalance thing. The Bilderberg CT is founded in class-warfare, from the left's perspective. His trutherism is anti-republican. Other things come from a right perspective. All of his things come from a whacked out perspective.

    I think what it really comes down to is that some people want to feel out of control and ignorant. Presenting the world as one big conspiracy theory relieves us of obligation to success. We can sit back and proclaim "see! It's a giant conspiracy, no one knows the truth, we have no control over our lives and we don't have any clue what's going on! THAT'S why my life is ****ed up!" As if, in some grand revelation, they will someday be relieved of all responsibility officially and stand vindicated for their helplessness. Alex Jonesians are as scary as they are hopeless.

    There is a ring of truth to that TNE. What ever drives the producers to set up these shows like they do, they are NOT rooted in journalism of any kind, and delve more into entertainment than they do inform.

    I'd say Jones was just a nutjob...if it werent for the fact that the federal government cant account for gun running schemes, warrantless wiretaps and spying on US citizens, spying on reporters, using federal agencies for election tampering, etc.

    The government accounts for "warrantless" wiretaps.

    1. A person at either end of the conversation must be on the terrorist watch list.
    2. A person at either end of the conversation must be outside the country.
    3. A quasi-warrant must be obtained from a special court prior to the tap taking place.
    4. After the tap takes place, a proper warrant must be acquired (without anything from the tap) before anything from the tap can be used against someone.

    In these ways, the government does account for the "warrantless" wiretapping.

    Considering all the recent revelations regarding phone records data gathering, internet website data gathering, what we know about Carnivore, Omnivore, Prism, etc......are you buying it?

    No, I don't think they are on a political paradigm either in the traditional sense. These are largely anarchists, and anti government people that are imbalanced following this pap. But, think about it, the model has bleed out into what we think of as traditional political information.

    24/7 newsfotainment like the MSNBC's, FNC, CNN models drive this sensationalism as well, and journalism is dead in this world. In listening to the 'Sunday show replays on C-SPAN' during my drive back from Indy that I do every Sunday, I counted the disparity in panel representation on the shows. Here's what I came up with....

    NBC/MTP - 4 progressive liberals vs. 2 Republican congress members
    ABC/TW - 3 progressive liberals vs. 1 Conservative Moderate
    CBS/FTN - All progressive liberals
    CNN/SOTU - 2 progressive liberals vs. 2 Conservative Moderates
    FNC/FNS - 1 progressive liberal vs. 1 Conservative, 1 progressive republican, 1 republican moderate.

    This type of thing is corrosive to information. And sadly, most people are not like us in here, they don't hang on politics like we do, so they watch maybe NBC/MTP, and the evening news, and think they are informed....No, they are led.
