Hi all. This news is 4 days old. I hope this still counts as news, because I only recently learned about it. Now I feel outraged.

AJ has always been crazy … but now it officially isn't funny anymore. I usually try to avoid moral outrage (Nobody likes a stuffy fruitcake who feels morally outraged 24/7.) but this made me feel morally outraged.

This contains swears, but swears are needed in this case.

InfoWars now thinks that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a "bloodsucking parasite". Why? Well … she think that poor Americans deserve decent healthcare. Yikes.

InfoWars is also playing the Venezuela card again. When will this Venezuela garbage die already? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does not want to copy the Venezuelan system. She wants America to be more like Canada, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Norway and Finland. All of those countries have a higher average life expectancy than the US, despite the horrible winters in these countries. Why? They have better healthcare systems than America.

In order to ensure the viral spread of hyperlinks to their invective, thus providing plenty of views for the associated advertising, the revenue from which will allow them to swell their bank accounts, massage their egos, and continue their nonsense indefinitely. Whether you agree with the opinions expressed or not, or whether AJ and his crew even truly believe them, is, as they well know, entirely immaterial, as either case may provoke the necessary "moral outrage" to motivate becoming a vector for the viral content and thus furthering their selfish interests.

In this case, it would appear that they have achieved their primary objective most effectively. Hook, line and sinker! :wink:

To each their own, but why does anyone listen to Infowars? I don't. I've heard it said that a measurable percentage of the listenership of Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin are liberals who can't stand that ilk. I don't get that.

Why do something listen or or watch something that incenses you?

As Kyle Kulinski pointed out, many InfoWars fans have committed murder in the past.

I don't understand what you mean.

I'm just wondering why, in general, some people watch, read , view, listen to someone who they strongly disagree with and who irritates them.

I get what you are saying. You are trying to put me on the same level as whiny SJWs like Anita S. I'm too lazy to spell her last name at the moment.

I think that we need to keep an eye on AJ because he (unlike the video game industry) is actually linked to several murders.

The "If you don't like it then don't watch it." argument becomes invalid when someone could actually incite murder.

The folks at InfoWars said "The bloodsucking parasites need to be eradicated." It was more than just an offensive joke. It was a dead serious call to action.

Ok. I'm glad you're on the case. I don't give Infowars the time of day.

I can understand based on your explanation then, why you'd monitor Infowars. I was just saying that I just can't understand why some people who are angered in general by someone would continue to purposely continue being angered. I know people do that and get a kick out of being angry. I had a sister-in-law that was that way. That's why I started my post with "To each their own." It's not for me (seeking out something that I know will anger me). That's all.

AJ also has the ability to influence President Donald Trump. Seriously.

She is promoting parasitism. That is essentially what communism/socialism/democrats are. Can't have it. If people have the right to jump from cliffs, drink, eat, and smoke themselves to death. Then free health care is impossible to sustain. We will lose one to gain the other I prefer freedom to make my own smart choices not have them made for me. And let others be free to pay for stupidity without the rest of us bailing them out with free healthcare.

You know that many people on the autistic spectrum need government handouts to live right?

Are you seriously implying that communists and Democrats are the same thing?

And yet universal health care is working just fine in every country that has it.

Your preferences don't matter when human lives are on the line.

If your "freedom" will let innocent people die, then I don't want it.

You are also assuming that all illness comes from stupidity. In reality, some people get cancer for seemingly no reason. It's largely random.

This makes me so glad I live in Canada. AJ probably doesn't believe our country even exists. :P

Or maybe he does and wants to destroy it for having "free" healthcare, and murder anyone in it it whom he deems unworthy i.e. doesn't agree with his opinions and beliefs. :(

I don't know, but what I *do* know is that he makes Hitler look like a nice guy.

Then surely employers should have to stop thinking of business as a get-rich-quick scheme by working as few employees for as long as they can, and with as little pay and benefits they can get away with. In fact, why can't we ensure employment to all able bodied citizens? Maybe even pass a law where employees can seize ownership from employers if wages are too low and benefits are lacking or are nonexistent.

Whoa there. Let's not let this thread spiral into extremism. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Is AJ a bad person? Yes. Is he as bad as Hitler? Not really. He and Hitler are both conspiracy nuts who like to describe their enemies as "parasites", but AJ hasn't gone nearly as far as Hitler.

I also doubt that he would ever approve of a war against Canada, given that he opposed the "War on Terror" during the Bush Administration. AJ isn't wrong about everything. He's just wrong about most things.

As bad as AJ is, there are still plenty of Republicans that are even worse than he is. AJ has been tied to various murders, but some other Republicans have supported pointless wars. Supporting a pointless war is just as bad as inciting murder, as long as we believe that all innocent human lives have the same value.
