This is a little bit creepy. Alex Jones, not shouting (though you can hear the damage to his vocal cords from prior damage in the gravelly voice) being remarkably rational about Chinese Wuhan Covid lockdowns. In the last minute he gets a bit more emotive / loud, but not full on.
Some of his “points” are a little bit “conspiracy theory”. OTOH, when you look up the “crazy quotes” you find out they are what was said. When you look up the relationships and the actions, they are as stated.
So “conspiracy theory” or just a simple “cooperation”, also known as conspiracy?
I hate to admit it, but he’s starting to make sense to me… Maybe I’ve been in lock-down too long ;-)
It is true that Los Angeles wants 10 million people to just stay in their homes for a few (6?) weeks.
It is true that New Mexico is telling grocery stores they must close for a few (2? 3?) weeks.
It is true that the PCR test has the sensitivity set so high you are finding lots of false positives AND folks who recovered from the disease with nearly no, or absolutely no, symptoms. Leading to excessive “cases” reported.
It is true that the death and serious complication rate is falling below that of the normal seasonal flu and that our treatments are now quite good.
It is true that The Media are lying to us about all of this, demonstrably so. Big Tech especially are censoring folks with M.D. after their name – exactly the professional opinions that ought to be heard – whenever that opinion opposes The Narrative. My “truth” filter looks for around a 90 / 10 split. If about 10% of the folks are saying FOO and 90% are saying BAR, then you can likely accept BAR as true while the 10% are flakes or just wrong [most of the time…] BUT, when it’s 100% one way? Something is wrong in the data… the suppression of contrary voices is shouting that something is wrong in the data.
It is also true that an increasing number of folks are just saying “Up Yours!” to the oppression. IF it continues, Biden is going to “own it”. Now couple that with 80 Million who think Biden is Usurper Joe and a Globalist Puppet? Not good folks. Not good. Add to that 80 million all those from the middle tired of functional “house arrest” and even the Bernie Bros who hate Biden & The Cronies, you start to get into the 100 M to 200 M range. A majority of adults.
Is Alex Jones right on this? I don’t know. I watch him sometimes mostly as entertainment / diversion. I tend to be more a Tim Pool kind of guy. Slightly left but mostly center of the bird. (Get out of foreign wars, I don’t care what drugs you like, who you love is up to you – just don’t shove it in my face, etc. but leave room for Traditional Folks to also have freedoms, as on some things I am traditional.) So I expect more hard evidence to back up positions and I expect assertions to be demonstrable with good evidence. I “taste broadly” but only swallow after the lab report comes back…
Still, a pattern is itself evidence. And we’ve got one heck of a solid pattern forming up. You run a “table top” on global disease and economic collapse, then we get an over-hyped “global disease” and calls for a “economic Great Reset” from the same folks? What?… And we’ve got video of them doing it all…
Maybe my Scotch budget is too small…
I need more anesthesia to swallow this stuff.
