Nightmare Fuel

There's really nothing I can say to make this any less frightening or any more coherent. It's like somebody crossed a Juggalo with a John Bircher.

Well, I hope he enjoyed walking around strip-malls and surface parking lots in 105-degree heat... and accomplishing absolutely nothing.

His physical appearance and the video itself were hilarious but when you listen to what he said, it really wasn't anything new: appeals to raw emotion; misquoting very old policy papers written by people who've been dead for 25 years; the same catchphrases (and veiled anti-Semitism) he was using ten years ago. Same old, same old, on and on. Absolutely nothing substantive.

At times I've thought Alex was "playing a role" as a Subgenius-like performance artist or a parody of a nutzoid far-right talk show host. I half expect him to announce one day that the whole thing was a big spoof. Honestly, this video felt a lot like satire, and it makes me wonder all the more.

Those police officers have a lot more guts than I have; if someone who looked like THAT approached me screaming and waving things in the air, I would have run away faster than a scalded dog...

I would love to believe, even for a few seconds, that Jones' whole schtick is just an act - that he's holding up a mirror to the crazed and irrational side of our society. Sadly, tho, I think he's just a mirror.

Way to go Alex! This over- the -top performance deserves an award! Showing excerpts from books that the author never repudiated, to reinforce your point, was a nice touch.
This video-spoof-satire will turn Jones in a rock star.

Sorry, PM, but I had to delete your comment. I'm trying to keep things civil here.
