horrifying. this is an old rerun, but it's scarier the second time, after the capital riot and the election hoax. the pathway from sandy hook to the capital riot is so clear, and re-hearing the rhetoric from AJ talking about sandy hook is so chilling now that his use of language has become ubiquitous. if we had punished AJ for the first slander/libel offense, could we have avoided this entire misinformation disaster? Really makes you question the boundaries of the first amendment.... maybe he really is Satan incarnate.
Lenny is amazing
Just watched a great documentary a while back, that delves into Putin, Trump, both of their histories, and how Russia used the growing political divide to their advantage. It's called Active Measures, and I highly recommend everyone watch it.
It just shows you how easy it is for another country to use misinformation to cause destruction and discontent, making people feel less confident in our political system.
No doubt, I think there's plenty that needs to change, such as Citizens United, but I don't think any American really wants to see the downfall of the country. But it also shows how easy some people are to brainwash, especially those who are already open believers of other conspiracies.
these conspiracy MAGA people are so infuriatingly, aggressively stupid. How somebody could defend them or delude themselves to think these people can be reasoned or discussed with is completely beyond me. That level of vile ignorance is definitely a choice. Whoever owns the means to listen to Alex Jones also owns the means to educate themselves about it.
Alex Jones and his followers are ignorant and downright uneducated foul people.
Wow. Great episode. I can not think of a worst nightmare after losing a child to mass-shooting. horrified.
Can't imagine what these parents went through. Horrifying..
fascinating and deeply troubling stories...
This was terrific reporting and should have been done long ago. I know many cult members will just think the people in this piece were lying about Jones but telling the truth is always right. exposing liars is always right. I wonder if others in msm are afraid to expose people like Jones because of their followers. this explains why qanon decided being anonymous is the best way to be a liar
Wow. People are just awful. Ignorant and awful. That woman who called in? What a foul creature. scum.
One of the most disturbing stories I have heard. What kind of human being would take another stab at the the heart of the parents who have lost their children? I am wondering how he would take it if something similar happened to him.
Best episode in ages.
best episode in a while
anyone who questions why certain people are de-platformed are clearly making an argument out of ignorance.
