Lars Larson Interviewing Alex Jones? Strange Days Indeed
I don't usually listen to the radio in the evening but last night I flipped it on and heard the gruff familiar voice of Alex Jones, leading media presence for the 9/11 movement and founder of the Prison Planet website. The surprising thing was the other familiar voice - Lars Larson. Of course, Lars was being fairly dismissive of Alex and his spiel. The callers to Lars' show pointed out that Alex was talking like a lunatic, but the poor guy is just so wound up and frustrated that he can barely contain himself. He ended up begging the audience to check out his latest movie, "Terror Storm", for free on his website, and pleading with them to check into 9/11 and related issues.
Lars took a playful tack at one point asking how we could tell if Alex wasn't working for the government? This went on for a bit till Lars asked Alex if he had ever been visited by the Men in Black. That was standard - you had a controversial guest on so you ridicule him a little to keep your corporate credibility. I thought this drew one of the better and most heartfelt replies from Mr. Jones. He said that yes, the Men in Black do visit him but that most members of the government are patriots who agree with him and are secretly just as disgusted as he is by the criminal enterprise that is currently underway. I thought that set Lars back a little and it had the ring of truth to it.
They actually finished up in agreement on the immigration issue and the potential end of the sovereignty of the United States as a result of the lack of border enforcement. It is odd that an administration that talks so much about Homeland Security doesn't concentrate more on the borders. Of course, this group never really means what they're saying anyway, but it was a note of agreement between the radio host and his guest.
Hearing the interview, I felt a very unusual sensation. I actually felt grateful to and appreciative of Lars Larson. See, all the various "conspiracy theorists" want is a place at the table. At least, that's what they need most right now. They believe - and so do I - that if you really take the time to examine how America has changed and what it means, you will become aware of the dangerous times we are facing. Alex Jones is simply a man who believes his country is in grave danger and he's just trying to wake people up to it. In an age when mainstream media basically shuns anybody who has this sort of thing to say, I thought it was remarkably hip of Lars Larson to give Alex Jones a platform to voice his opinions.
I'm going to keep this in mind in a couple of months when Lars is back to his old ridiculous self - doing brave battle in the gravest threat our country has ever faced: The War on Christmas.
