Alex Jones is Excited by Trump’s Retreat From Our Fact-Based Reality

Trump’s complete surrender to the fantasy world of paranoia and conspiracy theories has Alex Jones very excited. Yes, Alex Jones is excited by Trump’s retreat from our fact-based reality into a Breitbart-based reality. It hardly needs be said the two have nothing to do with one another.

As CNN’s Brian Stelter put it, the addition of Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon as chief executive of the Trump campaign means “nothing is off limits now,” and “we’re going to see the most fringy ideas, the most right-wing ideas bubble up to the surface.”

And you thought it was bad before.

According to Jones, the addition of Bannon means a “globalist’s nightmare” because of Bannon’s focus on “a globalist New World Order takeover program.” This is Bannon’s milieu, a place so out there that even Tolkien’s elves and orcs wouldn’t feel at home. Because as Jones says,

“Just because the old mainstream media calls us conspiracy theorist when we cover facts, doesn’t mean we should then bow down to them.”

Oh dear.

Take a listen courtesy of Media Matters for America:

We also have, obviously, massive news dealing with the Trump campaign, with the chairman and head of Breitbart, Stephen Bannon, who is a patriot and who is an anti-globalist, taking over as the CEO/chairman of the entire campaign.
 
Paul Manafort, who has also been doing a great job, is going to be staying on in the position he’s at right now. This is just an expansion of the campaign in Bannon’s own words and in Manafort’s own words. And I talked to Roger Stone, he concurs with that and said that he was also part of the research and trying to bring the head of Breitbart, who also heads up the institute dealing with government corruption, fighting government corruption. He’s the co-founder and executive chairman of Government Accountability Institute and the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC.
 
You’ve noticed since he’s been running Breitbart it’s gotten more hardcore, more pro-Second Amendment — not that it was ever bad, and really tells it like it is about the true nature of what’s happening, that this is a globalist New World Order takeover program.
 
I mean, we have the emails from the U.N., we have the emails from the normal cast of characters like George Soros. We know what’s going on, and just because the old mainstream media calls us conspiracy theorist when we cover facts, doesn’t mean we should then bow down to them.
 
And that’s why they’re calling him a street fighter, a brawler. The media is scared of this move because Manafort’s pretty hardcore but not compared to Trump.
 
Obviously you get Stephen Bannon and these other folks who have joined the campaign in there, this is really creating a globalist nightmare.

“Just because the old mainstream media calls us conspiracy theorist when we cover facts, doesn’t mean we should then bow down to them.”

Well…it’s not just the mainstream media, buddy. It’s most people. My third grader was into stories about the Illuminati. By the time fifth grade was over he knew better. Now you’d blame public schooling for that. I thank public schooling for that.

Bretibart is nothing these days but a Trump fansite, or as former editor-at-large Ben Shapiro wrote in The Daily Wire, “[Bannon] has sold out Andrew’s mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump; he has shaped the company into Trump’s personal Pravda.”

“With Bannon embracing Trump…Breitbart has become the alt-right go-to website…pushing white ethno-nationalism as a legitimate response to political correctness, and the comment section turning into a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers.”

Well…Hitler and the Nazi’s preferred pseudo-science to the real thing too. So did Stalin. Millions died in each case. Millions will lose their jobs at least in a Trump administration as a result of clinging to fantasy over fact. Seems dictators can’t stomach the world-as-it-is and need a fake version more congenial to their wants and desires.

Cults of personality don’t stand up to close inspection.

Bannon, like Jones, hasn’t had one foot in the pool of our shared reality in a long time. Neither, apparently, has Trump. It’s the stuff of fiction to see something like the Trump campaign, and I hope you are keeping your diaries updated, because if we’re lucky, we’ll never see anything like it again.

The Trump campaign is a bad acid trip, which unfortunately, we’ve been pulled into by some Alice Through the Looking Glass effect. Seriously, ladies and gentlemen, it doesn’t get any more bizarre up than this.
