Alex Jones: Oklahoma Tornado Was An Inside Job

Alex Jones

Via Media Matters.

Conspiracy talk show host Alex Jones is best known for promoting the theory that the 9/11 attacks were really a “false flag” operation by the U.S. government. He said the same thing about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre and the recent Boston bombings. Now he is making the claim that the Oklahoma tornado was a secret government plot.

Jones, a longtime proponent of the idea that the U.S. government can manipulate and even produce weather systems like tornadoes and hurricanes, went on to say that if people saw helicopters or small aircraft in the area, then “you better bet your bottom dollar they did this.”

“But, who knows if they did?” he asked. “You know, that’s the thing. We don’t know.”

Jones is being increasingly treated as a serious voice within the right-wing GOP. Republicans in the House, including Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), actually held a hearing last month to discuss Jones’ theory that that President Obama is trying to buy up all the bullets in the country.

UPDATE: Maddow: Will ‘weather weapon’ talk finally drive GOP away from Alex Jones? In an audio clip, Jones suggests the government is causing tornadoes to convince Americans about climate change:

“Tornadoes are way down. Of course, they lie that they’re way up to get carbon taxes, but I don’t know if this was a weather weapon or not. They can, with the right weather conditions, they can create and steer groups of tornadoes.”

      I love that video. It proves that atheists are nice people with cute children.

      I bet you Blitzer wouldn’t have done that interview if he had known though.

        I’m guessing Wolf Blitzer doesn’t spend much time in conversation with regular people.

          Well Glenn sure covered his bases in that presentation. It was sort of like “love the sinner, hate the sin” for atheists; “I like them, I really do!” – key word being them, (non-christians).

          For the unheard of price of just $99 a year, YOU TOO can have the Glenn Beck news channel!

          Think I’d just as soon give the money to Charles Manson. Did you notice the scull and crossbones on his studio floor?

            I’m still trying to get over the fact that CNN put him on TV.

            Never heard of him before you mentioned him.

            The only thing I can figure is that CNN wanted some of that cash FOX was getting. Very disgusting decision, especially considering he was even too much of a clown for FOX.

    Con-trails keep us from cooking! 9-11 made that perfectly clear.

    Oh there was a helicopter or two but that was nothing compared to the DC-10s filled with pallets of hundred dollar bills – like the ones they send to Iraq and Wall Street.

    I’m waiting for Pat Robertson’s take on the tornados.
