Putting the New World Order in front of the cart

Everyone knows about the horrible massacre at VA Tech that happened yesterday. Before the dead bodies were even counted the pro and anti gun folks were ready to go into action. I'm sure the Christian Right is having a look in the murderer's house for Marylin Manson records and gay porn and Joe Lieberman will propose banning video games. All of these people will get duly criticized as this endless media coverage plays out over the next month or so.

One person we probably won't be hearing about is Alex Jones, the conspiracy-mongering opportunist. By early afternoon he concluded this was a government black-op--a "Columbine-style set-up" to push gun control and move towards the New World Order.
Early details about the horrific school shooting at Virginia Tech strongly indicate that these events represent a Columbine-style black-op that will be exploited in the coming days to push for mass gun control and further turning our schools into prisons.
No evidence is presented. Every thing is like this with Jones. He starts at a conclusion and works his way backwards.

What's the big deal, right? This man is a fringe conspiracy theorist and is ignored by the media. Yes, but his ever-increasing conspiracy empire bothers me as it seems to keep pulling more liberals and celebrities into its fold. This guy is the main man for the so-called 9/11 truth movement. I keep encountering liberals who think 9/11 was an inside job and tout Alex Jones as some sort of muckraker (I wonder what they think about his theory that Global Warming is a plot from the global bankers and NWO overlords).

Many fellow liberals feel this way. Get a few beers in them and they start talking about the 9/11 inside job. "There wasn't a plane crash in Pennsylvania." What?!

Many otherwise completely smart and rational people have fallen for this garbage, putting their distrust and hatred for this administration into a convenient narrative and not thinking too hard about the facts.

Maybe a few who read this will take another look at the paper thin claims of Alex Jones after his bullshit claims made today to exploit a tragedy and start thinking about real solutions to problems that actually exist.
