MSNBC's Chris Matthews narrates a documentary that is supposed to air on June 16th in which Alex Jones is portrayed as a face of the Tea Party movement. Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media has been taking a closer look at Jones over the last several months and comes to some interesting conclusions about the Jones agenda.
Radio host Alex Jones, who believes that 9/11 was a U.S. government plot and “inside job” conspiracy, is featured in Chris Matthews’ Wednesday documentary on MSNBC as a leader of the “New Right” and the Tea Party movement. But Jones has absolutely nothing to do with the conservative or Tea Party movements.Kincaid goes on to talk about Jones' ties to the extreme leftwing group, LaRouche PAC:
In the advance promotional advertisements for the program, Jones is shown saying that the U.S. has entered the phase of “deep tyranny.” The promos make Jones appear to be the undisputed leader of the “New Right” and the Tea Party movement.
But in fact, a video shows Jones disrupting a Tea Party rally in Texas by shouting at organizers and speakers with a bullhorn. This performance woke up many Tea Party members to the real Jones agenda and he has been anathema to them ever since.
Matthews and his “sources” in the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Media Matters group should understand that, rather than being any kind of right-wing political figure, Jones works openly and closely with such “progressive” figures as Webster Tarpley, a former high-level associate of political opportunist and extremist Lyndon LaRouche, one of the first fringe political figures to question whether Muslims were behind the 9/11 attacks. Tarpley wrote 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in the USA, blaming the U.S. for the attacks.Interestingly, Kincaid points to Fox's Andrew Napolitano and Senate candidate Rand Paul (R-KY) as individuals who may have been duped by Jones. Napolitano is a reqular on Glenn Beck's television show and he also appears with some regularity on Jones' radio show. According to Kincaid, Napolitano thinks quite highly of Jones.
