How Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson Blasted Alex Jones Into the Mainstream
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."
Twenty years ago, that a shadowy cabal had been at work since the end of WWII silently directing the merger of nation-states into a single global technocracy was the stuff of fantastical conspiracy theory – the king daddy of tin-foil hat political schizophrenia.
The "New World Order" narrative was off the proverbial map, on the fringe of the fringe of political thought – until Alex Jones and his ideological kin hit the scene.
I discovered Alex Jones in 2011 when he was still an obscure "conspiracy theorist" relegated to the corners of the broadcast world with other figures like George Noory – before Sandy Hook, before the CNN jihad against him.
InfoWars' (Jones' media enterprise) mantra is "tomorrow's news today," which has very frequently proven to be more than just a catchy slogan.
Even some of his most outlandish conspiracy theories prove over time not just to be true but worse, in reality, than he originally conveyed.
Take the seemingly farcical matter of the gay frogs. Jones was ridiculed relentlessly for his admittedly ridiculous performance art when he dressed up in a furry costume as a homosexual frog and hopped around the studio ribbiting about a pesticide called atrazine.
His detractors still bring up the gay frogs things as a means to discredit him.
But, it turns out, Jones was totally right about the gay frogs.
"Atrazine is the most commonly detected pesticide contaminant of ground, surface, and drinking water. Atrazine is also a potent endocrine disruptor that is active at low, ecologically relevant concentrations. Previous studies showed that atrazine adversely affects amphibian larval development. The present study demonstrates the reproductive consequences of atrazine exposure in adult amphibians. Atrazine-exposed males were both demasculinized (chemically castrated) and completely feminized as adults. Ten percent of the exposed genetic males developed into functional females that copulated with unexposed males and produced viable eggs. Atrazine-exposed males suffered from depressed testosterone, decreased breeding gland size, demasculinized/feminized laryngeal development, suppressed mating behavior, reduced spermatogenesis, and decreased fertility."
Atrazine does feminize frogs and turns them gay. It very likely produces similar results in humans, although it may require higher concentrations to do so. And it's everywhere – although you may have never heard about it because the Public health™ authorities don't mind chemically castrating humans at all. Endocrine mimickers in the food and water are likely major drivers of transgenderism – perhaps even more influential than the TikTok social grooming element.
Or consider the transcript from a prescient July 6, 2010 InfoWars broadcast – a full ten years before the COVID pandemic:
"I don’t want you to sit here and hear me make these claims [about quarantines, limited movement, forced vaccines, GMO food, biometrics ID cards] …they’re producing these policy papers so fast that you could never read them all…
You’re not going to be able to go to the ball games anymore. You’re not going to be able to just go out and get drunk with your friends. You’re not going to be able to just go out and enjoy yourself… The only chance we’ve got of beating this scientific dictatorship… is for the rank and file of this planet to realize that you have a choice to make on what your destiny’s gonna be."
The examples of Jones's Nostradomus-tier foresight on critical political and cultural issues are legion, but I won't belabor the point for the sake of brevity.
I am no longer plagued by that well-conditioned sense of embarrassment at listening to Alex Jones and entertaining seriously his outlandish predictions. In the past, even when I felt intellectually confident that Alex Jones was exponentially more reliable than any MSNBC anchor or New York Times reporter, I still felt that tinge of embarrassment/shame at entertaining "conspiracy theories," followed by embarrassment about my embarrassment.
In 2018, the corporate state brought down the hammer, banning Jones from literally every social media platform virtually overnight. With the possible exception of neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin of Daily Stormer, no other figure has been more heavily censored in the United States than Alex Jones.
The clearly orchestrated perma-banning campaign would have been the death knell for most broadcasters – except that, in Jones's case, influential forces had begun to notice his value to the cause of human liberty and re-injected him into the public consciousness.
Jones's most infamous benefactors are none other than Tucker Carlson, who happens to host the highest-rated show on cable news, and Joe Rogan, host of the most-watched podcast in internet history.
Corporate media has taken notice and gone on the offense.
But it's too late. The InfoWars ideology – which essentially boils down to waging an information war against the transnational, transhuman globalist elite – is now mainstream. The genie's out of the bottle. Jones's formerly closeted viewers are more and more desensitized to the reflexive shame at listening to an unhinged "conspiracy theorist."
