Alex Jones Goes Unto Piers Morgan’s Show with All Guns Blazing: Mad Rants and Nonsense

Alex Jones, who hosts the “Alex Jones Show,” was invited to appear on and be interviewed at Piers Morgan’s show. This was after Jones was arrested at an airport for refusing to take off his shoes at a TSA checkpoint, and long after Jones had tried to have Morgan deported for his gun control advocacy.

The debate, or interview, or whatever it was, came across rather as a belligerent rant on Jones’ part. His basic position was summed up in this statement:

“The second amendment isn’t there for duck hunting. Its there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs.”

Nevertheless, he didn’t really get going until a moment later when an amazingly diverse set of topics were fused into one dynamo:

“”Britain took the guns 15, 16 years ago. Tripling of your overall violent crime. True, we have a higher gun violence level, but overall, muggings, stabbing, deaths — those men raped that woman to India to death with an iron rod 4 feet long. You can’t ban the iron rods. The guns, the iron rods, Piers, didn’t do it, the tyrants did it. Hitler took the guns Stalin took the guns, Mao took the guns, Fidel Castro took the guns, Hugo Chavez took the guns, and I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there in the street begging for them to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?

Jones wasn’t polite, of course, with his constant interruptions and his ignoring of the Morgan’s questions. At a couple points, his belligerence got silly:

“”Why don’t you come to America? I take you out shooting, you can be American, and join the republic.”

“You finished?” asked Morgan.

“Yes, I am finished,” he said before jumping out into another rant in which Piers Morgan barely got a word in edgewise.

Upon being asked how many gun related homicides there were in England last year, Alex Jones attacked him directly, calling him a “hatchet man of the new world order” and challenged him to box: “I’ll wear red, white, and blue, and you’ll wear your Jolly Roger.”

“He was the best advertisement for gun control you wish for” Morgan told Politico this morning. “This kind of vitriol, hatred, and zealotry is really scary. I didn’t feel threatened by him, but I’m concerned that someone like him has that level of influence. There’s got to be a level of discourse rise above that happened last night. It was undignified, unedifying.”

What all the madness comes down to, really, is a very fundamentalist instinct: don’t shift your foundations. Just as the Bible is the “infallible word of God,” to many Christians, so is the Constitution and the Bill of Rights a third Testament, sacred literature not to be tampered with. “The second amendment is sacrosanct… because there’s criminals, I don’t lost my rights,” said Jones during the show. And if the scenes in Orwell’s Animal Farm where the Animals Seven Commandments was slowly watered down and changed around has any meaning for us, it isn’t completely madness what mad Jones is saying, but the conservative instinct itself.

    Alex Jones is an ignorant American thug. It would be nice if American’s like Mr. Jones would actually have the proper command of the English language. In other words, before you get up on your soapbox and begin preaching to the American masses…Learn to speak English. In addition, yelling, screaming, rant and raving is not the way to communicate—people just stop listening. It is obvious that Mr. Jones, does not know the meaning of manners, albeit proper manners…Mr. Jones was a guest on Mr. Morgan’s show and he, Mr. Jones hijacked the show. Thug. Mr. Jones, let people get a word in edge-wise…that is called engaging in conversation. Then, maybe you would not come off as a total buffoon.

    I agree with Bloodwine. Mr. Jones did make an absolute fool of himself. He would never answer a direct question and I do believe he likes the sound of his own voice. I thank God that I am not an American as I would be totally embarassed by this individual. He doesn’t listen and as a result, he showed his stupidity. If he had listened to Piers in the first place, he would know that he wants the American government to do away with “assault type weapons”. He said that Hitler and Mao had guns – well yes, that was in a war situation.

    I believe that this man is an ignoramus. I have never heard of him before but that is because I am a Canadian, but from what I heard on the Piers Morgan show, I know I am not missing anything.

    I would like to know what his opinion would be if his family, his wife, his children were shot and killed – would his opinion of having an assault weapon be the same! I don’t even know if the man has family and if he does, I pity them all with having to live with someone who can’t speak and discuss, in normal tones, why he wants Piers deported.

    I am certain that the majority of Americans do not agree with him.

    Knowing that he has 50 weapons worries me because he acts like a “Hitler” and we know what happened there.

    He certainly doesn’t want to hear why this type of gun should not be allowed.

    Americans need to speak out against this type of weapon. The true meaning of the second amendment needs to be stated clearly and that no one is trying to take away an individual’s right to have a firearm – not an assault automatic weapon!
