  •  I think that was the point - that bringing him (19+ / 0-)

    out of the shadows would show how absurd he is. In the shadows, it is easier to buy into the conspiracies, but when the spot-light is on for a wider audience, you just look like a frothing at the mouth imbecile. Now, if they were to give him a show, that would be different, but to let him make a fool of himself to discredit himself, I am good with it.

      I hadn't realized/had forgotten that Alex Jones was calling for Piers Morgan to be deported. That brings some more relevance to this whole episode. And you're right, the more I watched, the more I sensed that Jones could have just bloviated nonstop. His lung capacity is impressive, so he's got that going for him I guess. I've heard of him and seen a couple of his freakish Infowars, delivering maniacal rants. It's really unique to see him being challenged like that against another person. Morgan was classy during the entire time. I don't know how much of an impact showcasing a genuine nutcase will have. It ends on a totally cynical tone, but it doesn't raise my confidence a leading spokesmen for RKBA either. I guess it just shows that some people can't be debated with, and they are menaces.

        was one of the central proponents of 9?11 Truthers.
        Total whackjob. Of course he's a gunloon, that sort of goes with the territory.
        ".. detained, arrested, and then released by the TSA" Uh huh. Arrested. Court date? Or did they magically disappear the citation?
        He's so lucky he's not brown.

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      to hang himself.  Perfect.

      I think he's the world's biggest coward. I don't know how Piers stood it.
