Jones really hammed it up on this one. The whole thing felt rather staged, and their parts were being played by bad act ors who were rejected by the WWF for lack of fitness.
Here's a cartoonist's take on Jones...
I have a rifle, shotgun, and a few handguns. With these I can hunt, kill intruders at close range or at a fair distance, and with a shotgun, I don't even need to be that great of a shot. I do not think ANYONE needs military-style assault rifles. These are OFFENSIVE weapons, not DEFENSIVE weapons. If you are foolish enough to think they are really going to do you much good if the government decides to come against you with the assault weapons, tanks, helicopters, etc. that our government has, you are just not thinking clearly. A ban on assault weapons is not an infringement of your second amendment rights, any more than banning you from having your own nuclear weapon is. Get a grip and quit buying into the fear and conspiracy theories. This is the same crap as McCarthyism except instead of there being a communist in every corner, there is a government conspiracy in every event. What a bunch of paranoid folks out there-maybe a trip to the doc for some Xanax and Prozac is more in order rather than a trip to Bill Goodman's next Gun and Knife Show.
Jones lost me when he concluded that Bush and his people are responsible for 9/11. It was a quick take-away point for Piers, to show just how nutty this guy is. Too bad, because Jones had been making some coherent points up till then, although as we have been saying his manner left a lot to be desired. This, however, is vintage Alex Jones.
Was Jones Burned! He was steamed! It was a hassle, but he got his points across to Piers Morgan! He let Mr. Morgan Have It!
I found this video a few minutes ago. Piers Morgan and Guests Discuss Shooting Alex Jones, then Laugh
Morgan isn't interested in statistics he is only interested in his own opinions. He should go back to England if it is so safe there and America isn't!
Yes I agree, he should. He is a leftist and a nasty one at that. But before we lash out at the English remember that they are our closest allies left on this planet and idiots like Jones do us no favors. Screaming and ranting like a crazy guy???!!! He got us nowhere. We suffered a big setback today....
This was all planned and those who don't think so have not yet learned how to win at politics....
Piers is a turd, but Jones doesn't do himself a service by going ultra-bombastic. He begins to sound like a professional wrestler working himself up into a lather.
Boy, I just got a nuclear-size bomb lit right under my arse seeing Piers having his head handed to him for, let's see, a second time within the last couple of months with fact-based evidence. The left always use an isolated incident as a tactic to make false and unfounded generalization to implement their failed agenda. It's that simple. Control, control, control!! That is all the left "demands" because they are sooooo privileged and genetically superior to make life and death decisions for you. Sniff, sniff! Is there a Lobsterback in the room?
You think that if it gives you comfort. If you don't think for one moment that Morgan had this planned you need to read politics 101.
this interview - what a joke - was meant to establish one thing; that we are all as crazy as Jones. See Jones just became our spokesman.
Seeing it yet? When are we going to understand that we are dealing with devious leftists. Have we learned nothing? Sadly it appears we have not.
Understood, RS1!! My sarcasm failed to carry the weight originally intended. No need for the vituperation and constructive criticism. As a friendly caveat, RS1, naivete has never been a strong suit of mine nor will it ever.
Furthermore, England is our strongest ally, indeed. Yet, as my former college football coach, John Williams, often reiterated to his players, "Men, we have maggots among us and I and my staff plan to root them out and kill them." Of course, I am not recommending a hit job on Piers, only a suggestion that if he is dissatisfied with the state of affairs in MY country, leave and do not let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.
Lastly, the nuclear bomb reference, sir, was implicit of the fact that the [fact-based arguments] statements spouted off by Jones were on target, regardless of the theatrics. Hopefully, my message is clear this time around.
Alex Jones has a style that I don't particularly care for (yeah, I know - strange coming from the Nukeman). I wondered why it was that Piers Morgan would want him on his show, simply because of the volatile nature of the man.
It appears to me that Piers had this set up all along to tie Jones in with all gun rights activists and make us all look like a bunch of loony toons. When have you ever seen Piers trying to be calm and collected? Why did he ask him about the 911 truther issue, at the end? Does it have anything to do with gun control?
I think he wanted to be portrayed as the adult in the room and Jones (and therefore, the gun rights people) as the insane idiot that doesn't know what he is talking about. He attempted to be calm throughout, hit him with the truther issue at the end, and left the impression to his audience (all six of them) that he had won the argument because of it.
Also, I'm sure he hoped the video would go viral, helping to boost a sorely sagging ratings. Let's hope he wasn't successful. His techniques are so obvious.
I'm not an Alex Jones fan, but I appreciate him taking on Morgan and not playing into his hands. Morgan kept wanting him to confirm that assault rifles were used in the past couple of mass murders; this was a way to put Jones in a corner. By refusing to answer the stupid questions, he left Morgan with out that line of attack. Jones really lost it, I guess, in a sense, but Morgan deserved every bit of it.
It's funny, you would think this video would expose Alex Jones for the jackass he's always been, but these people probably see him as a hero.
He has the mind of a child; It blew me away, even coming from him, for him to start making fun of his Piers Morgan's accent. What a fucking joke.
We have aligning positions and unfortunately, it tarnishes our cause.
I will refer you to this page; http://www.therightscoop.com/the-right-scoop-commenting-rules/
Alex Jones is a bit rough around the edges but he is a true patriot. And the gov't is going after him and his family with a vengeance.
A bit rough around the edges? That a little like saying cow crap has a mild aroma.....
He is wild-eyed crazy man who did nothing for our cause. Sorry 12grace, I usually love your posts but we will not agree on this one.
Alex Jones made some good points but the whole silly accent stuff did him no favours (as a brit I wasn't offended but just thought it made him look immature). Typical Piers Morgan snide tactic with the truther nonsense - designed to say to the audience (both of them) "if you are pro 2nd amendment, you are with this conspiracy loon - gratz"
On balance though, even with the silly accent and truther rubbish, Alex Jones probably helped our side simply by pointing out that in Europe the UK has the highest levels of violence coupled with the most stringent gun laws whist Switzerland has the lowest and the most lax. Enough said.
Disagree and so does my English wife who was decidedly unimpressed to the point of saying "I'm an American, what's my accent got to do with it?" Her father, a former Major in the Royal Marines would have taken a stick to Jones back if he had made fun of his accent and it is a hell of a lot "plummier" that Morgan's and yes he is a Conservative.
Jones has become the poster boy for the 2 amendment and he has made us all look like crazies. People who can be safely ignored. You don't think Morgan knew this would happen? You don't think this lib turd planned all this? It was a setup and Jones waltzed right in with his big freaking arrogant mouth.
2 amendment was set back today and anyone who thinks differently is going to be sadly disappointed.
I knew this interview would go this way. Alex Jones is an interesting guy, but he's got a very short temper. I knew he'd walk right into Piers obvious bait and blow his top.
I have to admit that I despise Piers Morgan so much that just hearing the crap that spills from his mouth makes me ill. I couldn't bring myself to watch this even though I'm commenting. I don't know much about Alex Jones so I can't comment on what he's said in the past. However, anybody that takes down Piers Morgan is (at that time) OK by me.
Go back to browbeating talent-less, publicity-seeking fools, Pierce. You're out of your depth here--ideologically and intellectually.
I honestly thought Morgan was going to cry there for a minute. Oh well, I guess he'll just go back to England and say how "uncultured" and "uncivilized" us Americans are. Personally, I'm getting sick and tired of being lectured by foreigners on how to run our country. I guess we must be doing something right after 200 years, especially when it comes to being the most powerful country on the planet.
I hate defending Piers Morgan, but Alex Jones is an idiot. He gives the pro-gun side a bad name. Embarrassing.
Mr Jones has alway's been known to be a very candid investigative reporter. The powerful persons and the powerful mainstream media knows Mr Jones reports will be frank and he'll come prepared with evidence. Here is one of many reasons why they don't like him, this is where Mr Jones entered the bat cave:
Alex was quite passionate here and I personally good not agree more with his stance. Though I have to say that he should have probably held a little more composure as the left, (MORGAN) will tout him as being a radical nut. He said that 1779 will rise again. I have news for ya'll. It has already begun to rise. The amount of hand gun and rifles being bought today, as we speak is unlike anything the weapons store have ever known. Teachers all over this land are becoming gun toting permitted citizens as they and any responsible person should. Do you out there realize that Barack INSANE Obama is actually planing to announce himself and his wife as King ans Queen come 2015. This was caught on an open microphone at a fund raiser in Iowa before this past phony election! That's right boys and girls, A MONARCHY is in the works right now. Alex is more than correct, he
I'm not a Piers Morgan fan, but Alex Jones (whoever he is) came across as badly as a rabid dog!!!!!!! Jones' attitude and rudeness hurt his arguement in my opinion. His appearance didn't help his arguement in my opinion.
I believe a person has to be this way with Piers, otherwise, Piers will just start calling him a stupid liar or something. Who is this Brit to seek to remove us of our gun right?
So it is your stance that because Alex is passionate about not having our guns, any gun, taken for sole means of control, he is a rabid dog. You say that his attitude and appearance harm his stance. Are you personally a member of GQ. I'd be willing to bet that you are not. Your comment is out of place, out of touch and strictly insensitively rude. You have no idea of what is at stake if these blue coat commies get hold of our guns. Just like Alex said, 1776 is going to rise again because of tyranistic. I personally say that the only way a police person or Government is going to get my weapon, solely used to hunt and if necessary PROTECT, is out of my cold stiff hand. Now if you do not comprehend that, then you need to pack your bags for china.
You think Jones convinced anyone and mean anyone of the rightness of the 2nd amendment? Dream on. He convinced no one. Those of us who agree, agree.
This whackjob was invited on to scream and shout and rant and rave to appear like the crazy that he is. The solid and clear implication is that each of us is also as crazy as this guy oh and we are probably truthers too.
Wonderful, just freaking wonderful.....
When are we going to learn how to win? I'm sick to my back teeth of losers losing it for us and then we applaud the loser and wonder why we freaking lose!!!!
Ahhhhh!!! Spare me the madness....
Shine the light huh. Then take that flashlight from your right ear and you shall not have that issue. Now will you!
Hey BiggBear or is it really Goldilocks? Whatever! Overly reactionary? hahahaha. Isn't that leftist speak? Communists were always persecuting reactionaries. The left speaks of the reactionary right etc etc ad nauseum. Impune you? What you write does that alllllll by itself, I merely shine the light :-)
Dark cavity better describes the empty space you have between your ears. Who borrowed the family braincell? Whomever it was go ask 'em if it is your turn yet to have it for a while.
It is quite apparent that you are overly reactionary and entirely the WRONGSTUFF. If you cannot see that I in fact am NOT in support of him, but whole heartedly in support of our GOD given right to protect and feed ourselves. Now if you want to get on here and prove to whomever reads your diatribe drivel and see’s what I do, far be it from me to prevent a fool from proving such. However you are attempting to impune someone whom really could care less and has obviously served more time on planet earth instead of planet commie! So place your ostrich head back in that dark cavity and say good night JESTER!
You must have had to dig deeply into your vast lexicon to have appraised my posting with such a dazzling display of logic and reason. You cheer for a cretin like Jones who rips Malkin in one breath and then espouses 911 truther crap the next. I can see you perched upon your seat even know, eating crackers, the crumbs spilling from your lips as you shout, mouth filled to over flowing, unable to speak but cheering nonetheess and then watching and re-watching as Jones the Whackjob blustered, boiled, fumed, fulminated, raved and ranted himself to a Hitler-esque frenzy and made all of us that support the 2nd amendment appear as crazy as he.
Dude, I think you just misunderstood him. You both agree on the majors. It's just Jones' "presentation" is what Army_Pilot1967 disagrees with.
I can't comment on that since I know nothing about Alex Jones or his claims about anything. I was merely making a point that he came across badly in the interview with P. Morgan. He came across as unhinged and out of control, which isn't the best way to influence or convince anyone of anything.
Well, Biggbear, since I served in the United States Army for twenty-six years, I don't believe I have to pack my bags to move anywhere. I, along with millions of others, defended our nation in peacetime and war, so I'm staying right here!!!! I won't even ask if you served in our military...but if I were to guess, I would say "No." I strongly believe in the 2nd Amendment...as well as all the other amendments...but going nuts on national television doesn't win Alex Jones any new supporters. He came across as irrational, unhinged and out of control in my opinion.
Hannan would school Morgan in a heartbeat. He is rational and PERSUASIVE !!!!
His book "A new road to serfdom" is really well worth the read if you have not read it.
That said, I'm sure if Jones where to meet Hannan he would most likely have so much fun ridiculing his accent he would not be able to tell an ally from an enemy. After all Hannan must be a redcoat.
I'm a history nut too and the truth is that at the time of Revolution we referred to ourselves as freeborn Englishmen. We also speak English. We get our basic laws from England which are predicated on the Magna Carta. The UK is our greatest ally on the planet and in one interview this useless screaming lunatic manages to insult England and English people all the account of a hopeless lib like Morgan.
I am blessed in my life to have family and personal relationship with loyal, love filled soldiers. My father, who is now 90, was also a pilot, he served Army in WWII. Our service members prove over and over again that in every generation heroic Americans-- unsung heroes-- of exceptional skill, strength, and integrity rise up to free the oppressed and secure our home. Outside of Christ, I have no greater gratitude and admiration than I do for our valiant America soldiers. From the least, to the strongest, from all generations, they are my heroes. They won't allow me to address them as a hero. They insist that the fallen are the true heroes. But... they are my heroes and my life is enriched and stronger because of their inspiration and encouragement that commands me to fight on; to channel my fears into motivation needed to stay courageous and fight on. Bless all of you who have demonstrated to me what it is to be strong.
I didn't know anything about Daniel Hannan, so I looked him up on YouTube and watched a short video. He seems to be a calm, rational man, unlike Alex Jones.
It was an honor and a privilege to serve alongside some great Americans in the military. And I met a lot of folks in the other branches of the military as well. It's amazing that we have so many strong people willing to sign-up and serve in the military in hot spots all over the world. There are a lot of unsung heroes in the ranks. Their comrades are aware of them, but the general public is not and that's okay because the most important people to military personnel, other than their families, are their brothers/sisters in arms. We owe a lot to those serving our country at this time. Thanks for all that they do but they don't get the recognition they deserve.
I don't know who he is either, but I think his day was shot (no pun intended) earlier in the day when he was stopped by TSA on his way to film the show. He was told to remove his shoes, and he had a fit about it seeing as how no one else in line was asked to remove their shoes. I suspect his day only got worse from there.
