We continue our serialisation of the 2016 article, The Strange Relationship of Infowars Alex Jones, Donald Trump and Roger Stone……
Jones reels in many an aggrieved listener and viewer with his anti-big government, anti-corporate, anti-system diatribes, however his favorite conspiracies often serve as a foil for legitimate concerns. Take for example, a favorite topic of Alex Jones, the Chemtrail conspiracy, whereby governments are said to be poisoning humanity and the planet via chemicals added to the fuel of military and passenger jets. which are then dispersed via vapor trail plumes from the engines.
Never mind that this would be a singularly ineffective way to dose a given area in poison, and more to the point, the presence of persistent jet exhausts or contrails in the atmosphere is wholly supported by good science, without the need for an all-pervading deadly conspiracy to explain their presence.
Those who Jones encourages to engage their time investigating this supposed conspiracy, may otherwise find themselves part of the movement against the more pressing (and demonstrably real) problem of air pollution caused by jet engines and automobile usage.
Instead, Jones leads nonthinkers down a garden path, where our leaders are supposedly engaged in a plot to poison a planet, and eco-system, that also sustains themselves and their own families.
One of Jones’ ways of accounting for this anomaly, is that many of our leaders are in communication with ‘alien intelligence’ and are planning to leave this planet, to live “off world” in a trans-humanist paradise once they have merged with machines.
Well, I suppose it’s obvious, isn’t it?
Another benefit for Jones of conspiracies such as chemtrails, is that it gives him a chance to give his range of health products a push, on the basis that the government is trying to poison you, and you need to take action to protect yourself. Just like a snake oil salesman, Jones introduces a problem that doesn’t exist, and then provides miracle cures for all ills.
As for climate change, apparently it doesn’t exist, and it is all a conspiracy to tax one of the basic building blocks of life, carbon. Trump agrees with Jones that global warming doesn’t exist.
It helps Trump conveniently play to big oil interests, whilst at the same time applying to have a sea wall built next to one of his golf courses in Ireland, to mitigate the risk of flooding caused by rising sea levels, which is being caused by climate change.
So, in the world of Donald Trump, climate change does and doesn’t exist at the same time.
It’s a bit like Schrödinger’s cat, which can be alive and dead at the same time, except it’s not a cat in a box with a poison pellet that can activate at any point, its Donald Trump’s mind, which can spew any information at any random moment, and the contents of any statement can be in complete contradiction to any previous or future statement.
There are a lot of things we don’t know about Donald Trump. What we do know of course, is that if there is a sea wall, it will be a big, beautiful sea wall.
