A few years ago Charlie Sheen, Hollywood golden boy and ex-hubby of big-boobed-mentalist Denise Richards, came out of the closet…as a conspiracy theorist (wait, didn’t I write this article already a couple of posts down?) Anyway, Sheen fessed up to being a ‘9/11 truther’ on the right-wing evangelist hub, The Alex Jones Show, shocking the main-stream media, and thrusting Mr Jones into the lime-light giving him the chance to deafen the poor audiences with a two minute rant.
Now, this is ok with me. Charlie Sheen seems like a decent chap, and, although I often disagree with his right-wing-Christian-isolationist-propeganda, Alex Jones is an entertaining career-conspiracy theorist, and often brings up some interesting points about crooked people in positions of power. I don’t even mind the, frankly, gut-churning cheesy rants and crazy faces he pulls on a weekly basis:
Today, however, my patience with Mr Jones, and his blatent self-promoting, profiteering hokem, finally expired. On Sunday, I was told that Jones had a revalation that was so important that ‘”If I disapear, I have made arrangements that this information gets out“. A dramatic statement by any measure. So earlier, I was lurking my usual online haunts, and a friend reminded me of Jones’ claim. I rushed to infowars.com, and was hit with a sudden rush of excitment, had this really happened?:
‘Reported by Charlie Sheen
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with our 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, while he was out promoting his health care reform initiative. I requested 30 minutes given the scope and detail of my inquiry; they said I could have 20. Twenty minutes, 1200 seconds, not a lot of time to question the President about one of the most important events in our nation’s history. The following is a transcript of our remarkable discussion.’
What follows is a transcript, written by Sheen, of the discussion with President Obama. Now, regardless of your opinions on the 9/11 truth movement, and conspiracy theory in general, it’s kind of impressive that Sheen managed to get close enough to the most powerful man in the world for more than a handshake. The conversation transcript contains a lot of the usual blow-by-blow evidence we’ve all heard time and time again, but there’s a bigger problem...it’s a total hoax!
You’d be forgiven for not realising this, as there was NO disclaimer on the infowars version of the article, and to top it off, if you did question the validity of it, your comment would be CENSORED by the ‘Jones Web Gestapo’…hmm, now where have I heard some Texan idiot ranting about this kind of behaviour before?
The guys at AboveTopSecret, much to Jones’ detriment I imagine, have the original for all to see here
But what really makes my blood boil here isn’t the fake interview, it’s the advertising! That’s right folks, littered throughout the ‘interview’ and related posts on his sites, Jones has added banner-ads to his upcoming Obama-basher, ‘Fall of the Republic‘.
It’s one thing to censor your fans, but to treat them like idiots as well is going too far in my books. This is nothing but a publicity stunt to sell more DVDs and website subscriptions. Shame on you Alex jones, at least some of your brain-washed cult have seen the light:
jones just lost a listener. this behavior is extremely shady. three comments have been censored. this interview did not happen. it is a literary device. i don’t know what is up with jones putting this up like it is real. there’s going to be alot of angry prison planet readers in about a half hour. they just made a bunch of fools of us all. thanks alex.’
The day a fictional story is hyped as the “biggest development in the truth movement” is the day I cancel my membership to Prison Planet (immediately). Goodbye AJ.’
What the hell? Not only was this ridiculously disappointing but now most of the people here didn’t bother reading the author’s note, which was conveniently left at the bottom!’
Jones has claimed on todays Alex Jones Show, that he was merely creating his own ‘Psyop-style’ operation to create more awareness of his website and DVDs the 9/11 truth movement, and that we in the ‘alternative media’ are bastards for twigging onto his blatent profiteering ‘jealous of his connections to Charlie Sheen’.
No Alex, we just don’t like seeing people that you have shouted into submission over the last few years, being played like fools; and then watch you act like a little baby by altering both of your sites AFTER THE FACT, censor your fans comments that PAY to hear you bleat through a bloody bull-horn and advertise fear-inducing products like ‘E-Foods’…now take your bull-horn and shove it up your ass!
