Pro-Gun Advocate Alex Jones Goes Crazy on Piers Morgan’s Show (Video)
Absolute mayhem may be the best way to describe radio host Alex Jones’ Monday-night appearance on CNN’s Morgan Tonight. Jones had been invited to appear on the talk shot to discuss his role in creating an online petition to deport Morgan, as well as his extreme gun activist positions. What occurred, however, was nothing short of insanity.
Jones came to the show armed with a host of statistics—none of which he ever actually explained—as he quickly moved on to attacks against Morgan, the federal government, pharmaceutical companies and administrations worldwide. Among other rants, Jones claimed the Iranian student who the media recently reported was gang-raped could have protected herself if she had a gun; that megabanks control the planet and are conspiring to take guns away from citizens; and blamed many of the recent mass shootings on drugs such as Prozac.
The number one cause of death in America is suicide,” Jones shouted, “because they give people suicide mass murder pills!”
As if he were calling for revolution, Jones proclaimed Americans will rise against those who try and regulate firearms.
I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!” Jones declared. “Doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street, begging for ‘em to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand? That’s why you’re going to fail, and the establishment knows, no matter how much propaganda, the republic will rise again!”
Jones seemed particularly fired up at Morgan, who barely got a word in edgewise and certainly never had an opportunity to begin any actual debate against Jones. At one point, he challenged Morgan to a boxing match before accusing him of being a “hatchet man of the New World Order.”
I’ll wear red, white and blue and you can wear your Jolly Roger,” Jones said.
If Jones were trying to make any valid points, such as his theory of government involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, his message was lost amidst his nonsensical rants. When Morgan pointedly asked him how many murders were committed in Britain last year, Jones actually replied, “How many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin.”
Certainly anyone tuning in to the program late could easily have assumed Morgan was interviewing an escapee from the local loony bin. Although Jones could have made a legitimate argument with statements such as, “Hitler took the guns, Stalin took the guns, Mao took the guns, Fidel Castro took the guns, Hugo Chavez took the guns,” his message was lost in the madness.
