We conclude our serialisation of the 2016 article, The Strange Relationship of Infowars Alex Jones, Donald Trump, and Roger Stone with The Prophesy.
I’d been making several artworks and collages reflecting the evolution and conjunction of disinformation, conspiracy and right-wing politics.
The collage above “Triggering the Shooters” was made in late 2015.
The confluence of forces, seemed to me, to be heading in a very certain direction, whether that be by accident or design.
An earlier draught of the collage in an unfinished state from early 2015, (some four months before Trump announced his run for the presidency,) didn’t have Trump on it, it had Charles Manson, Jim Jones and Marshall Herff Applewhite Jr.
Marshall Herff Applewhite Jr. was the leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult who organised the mass suicide of 39 cult members, including himself.
The cult professed to believe they were departing for a intergalactic space ship flying in the shadow of the, then bright in the sky, Hale-Bopp comet in 1997.
For me, by May 2016, when I concluded writing The Strange Relationship of Infowars Alex Jones, Donald Trump and Roger Stone, I felt I could clearly see where things were heading.
Disinformation, brainwashing and cult like worship of a demagogue.
This wouldn’t end well, and this was my, at the time, final word on the matter:
Part 11 – Prophesy
With all this in mind perhaps there is a need to formulate a counter conspiracy theory to attack Alex Jones who has done his best to co-opt the counter culture movement today….
There is a shadowy group in existence that has a plan…….
They need a man to help them wrestle control from the coming pluralistic order, one who isn’t seen by the majority to be beholden to the elite interests and privilege of yesteryear. A man who will do what has to be done without worrying about being politically correct, or even for that matter, correct in any way at all. A man who has no problem in lying through his teeth and is so polished at lying he can get millions to not worry that all he is, in fact, is a liar through and through. A man who knows that after decades of being lied to, a large swathe of the U.S. electorate don’t believe anything they hear anymore anyway, so it matters not what the liar says as anything is more believable than someone in ‘insider’ politics who is supposed to be pretending to tell the truth.
A man who would willingly utilize the media platform of an individual who has been engaged in the dissemination of untruths on a massive scale which have served to obscure further the truth behind some of the most critical issues of our time.
Donald Trump, a man who would befriend Alex Jones and in the process Jones would throw under the bus all his previous moral platitudes in return for vain-glory and increased revenues.
Could Alex Jones Infowars be a tool that has been slowly paving the way for a time when it is necessary for dissent to be fomented, in order for a popular political uprising to deliver a less democratic form of power into the hands of some very unsavoury characters? With all the unsavory characters that seem to swirl around the infowars brand, could there be a plot akin to the failed 1934 fascist Business Plot coup attempt to overthrow the Roosevelt administration?
And if there is a fascist plot being hatched, will there be a Smedley Butler to save the day?
Alex Jones, a man who cries freedom of speech and then supports a presidential candidate who supports closing down parts of the internet to achieve his objectives. Alex Jones, a man who reported widely on and derided the CIA for their extraordinary rendition and torture program and now supports a presidential candidate who extolls the virtues of torture and thinks the U.S. needs to go even further in its use of it.
Alex Jones, a pied piper at the gates of hell, ready to lead the unwilling – who knows, perhaps even you – into the valley of darkness, into the abyss.
Authors note, September 29, 2021
And so it was, I seem to have predicted a situation not altogether unlike the events surrounding and leading up to the January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the Capitol in Washington, witch some uncanny accuracy.
Not only that, I identified the main players even in advance of Trump’s run for president.
I seem to have stumbled on the people, the plan and the methods of the plan for January 6, 2021, years in advance of the event.
If only alternet.org had published it when I sent it to them in June 2016.
Would it had made the world a different place?
I doubt it.
In the valley of the blind, the one eyed man is seen as insane.
