Environmentalism Kills Children! (And other nonsense)

Several weeks ago, Jones cited an article entitled "Carbon Calculator Teaches Kids When to Die", and said that some children have already committed suicide to avoid harming the environment.

There are a couple of big problems with this.

1. The calculator is actually a game-style computer program called Planet Slayer, and it doesn't tell kids anything about death. It just tells them if they have already used up their "lifetime share of the planet", based on how they answer a series of questions. If the child has used up his "share", he's told to answer the questions differently - not end his life. Sheesh. No game that I know of tells kids to off themselves, fer crying out loud. I've told you a million times not to exaggerate, Mr. Jones.

2. People rarely - and I mean pretty much never - commit suicide because of science, excluding medical problems or troubling medical diagnoses. There have been suicides or threats of suicide over 2012, the Large Hadron Collider, the Hale-Bopp UFO, and other alarmist and misinformed stories that don't involve any real science. But suicide because of the environment? News to me. I can't find a single documented case of this. When kids kill themselves, depression and bullying and loss of a loved one seem to be the most common causes. "A computer game told me to kill myself" wouldn't make the list.

"Hitler was on the MI5 Payroll"

Jones declared this earlier in the week, apparently not realizing that Mussolini - not Hitler - was recently exposed as being on the MI5 payroll early in his career. Wrong country, wrong dictator.

Satanic Panic is Alive and Well...

on The Alex Jones Show.

During his latest interview with David "Turd in the Punchbowl" Icke, Jones declared, "We know that Satanists sacrifice people. They get caught doing it all the time."
He said that France's Minister of Culture, Frederic Mitterand, bragged in a book that he "goes to slave camps and rapes little boys". Mitterand even refers to this practice as a "ritual".
This is pure bullshit. The book Jones refers to (though he clearly hasn't read it) is Mitterand's 2005 autobiographical novel, The Bad Life, in which he describes visiting young male prostitutes (young men, not children) in Thailand. No "slave camps". No "rape". No "little boys". However, Mitterand did push the envelope by describing his reaction to the sex trade in Bangkok thusly: "All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market, excite me enormously".
Icke stated, "Roman Polanski is a practicing Satanist." He said Sharon Tate's murder was directly connected to Satanism. He went on to explain one of his central conspiracy theories, that the elite routinely rape and sacrifice prepubescent children to obtain their energy (and blood, since they are blood-drinking, shapeshifting Reptiles from another dimension). All of this is, again, pure bullshit. The Manson Family did not practice Satanism. Charles Manson talked about the Devil, but he also talked about and likened himself to Christ on many occasions.
There are zero indications that Roman Polanski has anything to do with Satanism, either. Is he a perv? Yes. Is he kinda creepy? Yes. There's ample evidence of both of those things. But a Satanist? Don't think so. Pure speculation. Directing a horror movie does not a Satanist make.

Jones listed the cultures that have practiced ritual human sacrifice: Mesoamericans, Africans, Aztecs, Asians, Babylonians, Romans, Greeks, Middle Eastern tribes. He said that all had high priests who worshipped the same snake god and followed the same "secret mathematics religion", and all sacrificed healthy people of all ages and both sexes. Most tortured their victims. Most used hallucinogens (as does Icke himself, but Icke stayed mum at this point in the broadcast). Note, please, that Jones didn't mention Celtic or Nordic sacrifice.
Again, pure bullshit. There is no "secret mathematics religion", and the cultures mentioned had an array of gods (not just a single "snake god", though a few did incorporate snakes or serpents into their cosmology and/or mythology at one time or another - as does Christianity, which Jones favors, and the chemognostic New Age "shamanism" that Icke appreciates).

Jones went on to say that Tony Blair likes to be possessed by the spirit of "white light", and that homosexual orgies take place during Skull & Bones initiation ceremonies. As Blair is now Catholic, I don't know why his alleged ecstatic states would have anything to do with Satanism. And though there is reportedly some True Confession aspect to Skull & Bones inititation ceremonies, no one has revealed gay orgies (or any kind of orgies, for that matter).
