I know that as soon as anyone sees the subject line they will roll their eyes and rightfully so. I used to occasionally watch his YouTube videos about 10 years ago and thought there could be some truth in some of his theories. I, like most people who watch his videos for very long, quit watching after realizing that he is nuts. I stumbled across some of his videos at some point about 6 months ago and boy if I thought he was nuts in 2006/2007 he is REALLY off the deep end now. It's like watching a parody of a conspiracy theorist. He's selling these weird male vitality supplements, prepper supplies, and other snake oils. I also noticed that he now goes on and on about being a Christian. This really took me by surprise due to the fact that he never talked about his religion in the past. I don't know how he isn't called out for thinking/saying that nearly every major shooting in the US is a hoax, 9/11 was a false flag operation, FEMA is building concentration camps, etc. while at the same time professing beliefs for religion which seems to me like it would be an obvious, easy target for skepticism.
My question to people on this board who are familiar with his videos is, do you think Alex Jones sincerely believes what he is saying or is he purely an entertainer who knows that what he is saying is bullshit? To add a fittingly conspiratorial aspect to that question, do you think he's a plant to make anyone who believes in conspiracies of some sort look stupid? I know that's far fetched but it's all in fun.
I've also noticed that shootings that take place in the US and are perpetrated by white people are all hoaxes staged so that the government can take our guns. If it happens overseas and it is a Muslim, the shootings are real. Muslims attacking inside the US is a toss up because while he would really like to take the opportunity to bash Muslims, he has to remind folks that it's just the government trying to take away the 2nd amendment.
