The Blame Game: Hollywood Edition

 Jones is heavily into "predictive programming" analysis these days, looking for clues to the globalist agenda in cartoons, magazines, and especially Hollywood movies. Last month, he pointed to an illustration in a 1994 issue of Vice, featuring Beavis and Butthead as Al Qaeda terrorists circling the Twin Towers in little airplanes, as a classic example of "predictive programming". That's when bad guys tell you exactly what they're going to do to you before they do it because their ancient, heathen math religion demands a willing victim (you know, like Cabin in the Woods). The problem with this brilliant theory is, the issue was actually a mock-up of a 1994 magazine to commemorate Vice's 15th anniversary - written, illustrated, and printed in 2009. Vice explained this before Jones went on the air with his "Beavis and Butthead predicted 9/11" rant, so a 30-second 'Net search would have saved him the trouble.

Most of the time, Jones doesn't actually watch the movies before he puts out a video dissecting the globalist symbolism and programming in them. Instead, he claims to have a "leaked" copy of the script or an "early draft" of the script, and he bases all his conclusions on that. Which is a terrible idea, considering that even when Jones actually goes to a movie and watches it from beginning to end, he doesn't understand what he's watching and gets everything horribly wrong. Watch his factually challenged Watchmen review or his unintentionally hilarious Squidbillies analysis or his off-topic rant about GMO corn in his review of The Road to see what I mean. Or just look around you and see if you can spot the signs of the epic race war that was supposed to be unleashed by the action-comedy Machete.
I was already working on a post about his absurd analysis of Prometheus when this Dark Knight Rises thing came up. Last night, my Significant Other played Jones's analysis of the film (below) twice (Jones claims to have a leaked copy of the script), then we discussed how alarmist and off-base it was, and how Jones (particularly in some of his gun ads) tries to inspire fear and anger in his audiences. I also noticed that Jones tends to identify with the angriest, least rational, most unpredictably violent characters in films (The Joker as played by Heath Ledger, Rorschach in Watchmen).

As soon as I woke up and heard that people in Aurora, Colorado had been shot at a midnight screening of Dark Knight Rises, I thought, "Oh, great. An Alex Jones fan has snapped."
Jones is already bitching about the same thing, saying the media is trying to blame him for the shooting.
That is absolutely not the case. None of the mainstream outlets have been able to find out anything about the gunman's personal tastes - his apartment is reportedly booby-trapped with suspicious-looking bottles of fluid and/or possible explosive devices - so his taste in radio broadcasters is still very much unknown. Jones has not been mentioned in any mainstream news story.
Regardless of what they find in that apartment, though, it's obvious that James Eaton Holmes could not have been inspired solely by Jones's "analysis" of The Dark Knight Rises. He already had a flak vest and gas canisters or smokebombs and a little arsenal at his disposal by that time. Also - and I don't mean to be unkind - I don't think aspiring neuroscientists are among Jones's hardcore fans. Until last month, Holmes was studying neuroscience at the University of Colorado (he already has a degree from the University of California Riverside).

No one knows Holmes's motives yet, except for Alex Jones. He has it all figured out. And so do you, if you're a regular listener. You already know what he's going to say. You already know how to play the Blame Game. But for those who may have missed it, here's a review of what Jones has had to say about the other crazed gunmen and mass murderers of recent years, culled from earlier posts on this blog. 

- Timothy McVeigh made it crystal clear that he planned the Oklahoma City Bombing partly in retaliation for the Waco massacre. But in Jonestown, he's just an FBI patsy whose handlers probably told him he was fighting white supremacists, and he confessed in graphic detail on multiple occasions only because he was drugged by the CIA.

- For over 20 years, elderly racist James Von Brunn made it extremely clear that he loathed non-whites and non-Christians. But when Von Brunn walked into the D.C. Holocaust Museum in 2009 and opened fire on the security guards, Alex Jones declared  the shooting was probably engineered jointly by the government (as part of what he called a "Valkyrie takeover drill") and the Anti-Defamation League. Von Brunn was possibly threatened into participating. He has not provided any evidence to back up these theories.

- When Joseph Stack intentionally crashed an airplane into an Austin office tower in February 2010, he left behind a vitriolic letter blaming the IRS for all his troubles. Jones talked about the attack on-air for about 3 hours before suddenly deciding he had predicted the attack with his earlier rants about the Great Tea Partier Frameup of 2010 that never actually happened. Stack, too, was not what he seemed (a tax deadbeat with anger issues), but a government patsy who was somehow manipulated into plowing a plane into a building.

- When children shoot up their schools, it's not because they're mentally ill or because they're psychotic little assholes, even if the videos and writings they leave behind point clearly in one of those directions. It's because of psych meds they might not even be taking.
Jones once stated, "We didn't have these school shootings until 1988, when Prozac came out." At one point, Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars actually tried to pin Mark Chapman's murder of John Lennon on Prozac...which wasn't even available until two years after Lennon's death.
This SSRI theory ignores the fact that many of the worst school massacres, including the worst one in American history, occurred long before these drugs were on the market. For instance, a California vice principal killed five of his colleagues and injured a sixth in 1940.

- Lee Harvey Oswald was a CIA/military plant who didn't shoot at anyone. He was forced to pose as a leftist by his handlers. Even as a teenager and even when no one was looking, I guess.

- January 9, 2011: Jones explained that Jared Loughner is probably a government mind-controlled assassin and an abortion-loving atheist Commie. Weirdly, he's also linked to white supremacy and was a fan of Jones's frequent guest David Icke, who teaches us that the elites are lizard hybrids rather than people, but that's not very important.
Jones admitted there wasn't a lot of evidence (read: any evidence) that Loughner is a Manchurian Candidate, but like all other Candidates, he was preoccupied with mind control. So are many mentally ill people, but never mind that. Federal zombie assassins are way more interesting.

- When James Lee entered Discovery Channel headquarters and threatened to shoot employees for not doing enough to save the planet, leaving behind a radical environmentalist screed, Alex Jones accepted the media's explanation at face value. So you see, when a right-wing extremist shoots people, he's only doing it on behalf of the government (or because he has been drugged and/or threatened by the government). His stated motives are not the real motives, and his intended goal is not his intended goal. But if a left-wing extremist shoots people, he really is doing exactly what he says he's doing.

- After Anders Breivik opened fire on schoolchildren and bombed a building in Norway last year, Jones suddenly realized that Infowars predicted the Norway attacks the day before they happened. He explained it all in these video messages.
Never mind that Infowars started out speculating that Middle Eastern terrorists could be responsible for the Norway attacks, or that within hours of the attacks, Kurt Nimmo concluded the whole thing was really a false flag NWO attack designed to crush the growing populist movement in Norway. Then Infowars decried the mainstream media's scapegoating of Middle Eastern terrorists. Pot, meet kettle.
Throughout all this nonsense, Infowars didn't say anything about Jones predicting the attacks. So did he actually call it, just like he "predicted" the Austin plane crash? No. What Jones griped about the day before the Norway attacks was the use of white terror suspects in DHS terrorism-awareness videos. These are the same hokey PSA videos I discussed earlier in the year. In his opinion, they're a huge part of the NWO effort to brand white populists like himself as The New Threat to Mankind. In my opinion, they're generic PSAs. The reason the vids don't feature Middle Eastern men acting suspiciously is because the DHS didn't want to come off as a bunch of racists.

The "patsy" Breivik confessed to his crimes and the motivations for them in such excruciating detail and with such obvious enthusiasm that the court actually ordered him to stop, realizing he was using his trial as a soapbox for a racist, pathologically anti-Communist credo. What an awful patsy. Aren't patsies supposed to sit down and shut up? And what awful globalist plotters - if they wanted Breivik's "false flag" crimes to be seen as a threat to society, then why didn't they let him natter on and on in court?

And now we have Holmes, another Manchurian Candidate (he was in a neuroscience program - isn't that enough evidence?). He was probably a Democrat. He was probably given powerful drugs, then taken to a private screening of the new Batman movie so that he would be programmed to "channel" the villain, Bane. That's the whole point of Hollywood comic book movies: Department of Defense programming.
Public officials are now trying to merge reality with Hollywood fiction by referring to Holmes as The Joker, sucking us all into the illusion that we live in Gotham with superheroes and supervillains. Never mind that it was Holmes himself who allegedly dyed his hair orange and told police, "I'm the Joker." Never mind that Jones himself once went on a Joker binge, painting his face to deliver weird rants and mass-producing Obama-as-Joker T-shirts and posters.
The point, as always, is gun control (the UN Arms Trade treaty Obama is set to sign) and social conditioning psy-ops (encouraging some of us to be violent and the rest of us to be fearful and subservient to authority). Like I said, Jones has it all figured out. He's practically psychic.

I know guys like Jones are allergic to things like "facts" and "evidence" but for everyone else it should be interesting to note that shootings like these lead to less gun control.

Sure everytime a shooting like this happens there are plenty of calls for stricter gun control but the trend amongst the public is actually in the opposite direction. As the graph in this article clearly shows, 20 years ago most people were FOR stricter gun control but following the shootings at Columbine support for gun control has been dropping and support for less gun control has been rising. Right now the majority wants less gun control. Really then if these were all "false flag" operations meant to disarm citizens it's failing spectacularly!

Seems true in this case, too. Many Americans are arguing that concealed carry laws could have prevented (or at least shortened) the Aurora massacre. I'm not sure if that's the case, since the dude was wearing body armor, but I can say that the incident doesn't do any favours for the gun control lobby. Now people who didn't think much about guns suddenly want them.
Australia did use the Port Arthur Massacre, which was smaller-scale than the Aurora shooting, to bring in tough gun laws. But they had already been on the verge of that due to gang violence and a few other mass shootings. The U.S. has never been, and is not currently, on the verge of banning guns.

Another post where someone frets taking away guns:
I'm rather disgusted by their notion, really. And also, the same author defended the shooting of trevor martin and the xenophobic Arizona immigration laws..yep.

S.M. Elliott said...

I would be embarrassed to make any assumptions about this case right now. No one knows anything about the guy, we didn't even know the victims' names until a few hours ago, and the details are about as clear as mud. Jump to conclusions much, people? Hey, maybe Jones is right about Hollywood brainwashing...we've all been watching so much CSI and X-Files that we think complex crimes can be resolved in fifteen minutes.

Eugene said...

I've heard a lot of people talking big about how this shooting would have been over real quick if they were there with their guns. Colour me skeptical but I imagine that someone returning fire from a dark cinema through a crowd of panicked people could possibly make things MUCH worse. But what do I know?

Roaring Mouse said...

Bravo--and thank you. Just one thing; was your reference to Aurora, Illinois intentional, as a reference to Wayne's World and slapdash broadcasters everywhere, or just an error in geography? Too bad, as it mars an otherwise enlightening piece.

S.M. Elliott said...

Accident, but at least an amusing one.

S.M. Elliott said...

Just glad I didn't type Aurora, Texas. This is all weird enough without bringing dead aliens into it.

FK said...

What do you make of Watson? I know you mention him briefly here but I think the man deserves a closer look. He delivers some border line dangerous articles yet his motivation seems cloudy

S.M. Elliott said...

His motivation is to keep his job. He's not a journalist, of course, and he's essentially unemployable outside the Alex Jonestown world. So he has to deliver top-quality paranoid drivel on a regular basis. Since there are no fact-checkers or editors aside from Jones himself, he can publish anything.

FK said...

he seems to be Alex's only source of 'news' at the moment. do you know how a pale, painfully English bedroom reporter came to be integral to infowars? it almost seems surreal.
