|At least Alex Jones' conspiracy theories are entertaining|
The most novel theory is that Obama is recruiting these kids as child soldiers who will take our guns and freedom away.
The guy who gives us this is Alex Jones, somebody I'm usually loathe to give attention to.
He's usually given to telling us that the government is causing weather disasters to control us. and that awful things like the 9/11 attacks and the Boston Marathon bombing were "false flag" operations conducted by the U.S government to take our rights away, or something.
But his latest theory is so over the top I couldn't resist repeating it, just for laughs and giggles.
According to Jones, his buddy William Gheen, Obama is recruiting all these kids from Central America and when they get here, he gives them Obamacare and Obamaphones, whatever those are.
That ingratiates them to Obama, and lets him build up a secret child army, like some tin pot African dictator. This army of vicious children will take all our guns and freedoms away.
Of course, I doubt even Jones believes this wacko theory, or many of the others on his scary Web site, infowars.com
As Salon noted not long ago, Jones peddles these ideas to a gullible audience and makes bundles of money from the enterprise. He's a conspiracy entrepreneur
The only really scary part for me, is how many people read and watch Jones just to laugh at the conspiracies, and home many people actually believe every word Jones says?
