Jason Bermas’ Fabled Enemies

“Seven years after 9/11, the supposed mastermind behind the attacks is still at large, and the nation is entrenched in multiple wars in the Middle East.

Is Bin Laden the evil behind the attack or a mere front man in a larger picture, a Bogeyman?
We are told we are fighting a War on Terror, and that the Terrorists hate us for our freedom. If that is the case, why do our leaders take more and more of those freedoms away every day?
10 part documentary by Jason Bermas and Alex Jones release date September 1st, 2008.

Friday, September 5, 2008

I am happy to report that Fabled Enemies, went from number 2 on September 1st to number 1 on September 2nd. Of course it was mysteriously gone from the top 100 all together by the 3rd, and comments and views seemed to freeze.

Reached No.1 in the World on Google, then mysteriously disappeared on the third day..

    Just look at the amount of advertising on Alex Jone’s website. He’s generating huge amounts of hits and making lots of money out of his conspiracy theory peddling. He even has conspiracy theories about his own conspiracy theories. The guy is a genius, he peddles his garbage and the conspiracy nuts just lap it up. They can’t get enough of it.

    Be wary of anyone who harps on about the apparant problems that ail this world while doing nothing to suggest / promote solutions.

    Jone’s is a snake oil salesman. Diligently question everything he says.

  2. Ed says:

    Buzz, I’d be very interested to hear your considered analysis of Mr. Jones’ research.

    I warn you, this may require hours of reading.

    One thing it won’t require, however, is feverent ratification of his sources or an involved deconstruction of his discourse as – like a good journalist should – he generally lets his sources speak for themselves. In my opinion.

  3. buzz aldrin says:

    You’re referring to Jones a ‘good journalist’? on what criteria?

    Do ‘good journalists’ stand outside Bildeburg conferences shouting at people in limousines through a megaphone “We are not your slaves”.

    Regardless of the apparant importance of his discoveries. Jones’s cause is not the seeking of truth however. Jones’s cause is the furtherment of Alex Jones’s ego – under the pretense of seeking the truth.

    One can’t deny that he has uncovered some intriguing information. But he isn’t a constructive force for good in this world. I question his motives. Jones’s fervent, self-righteous delivery is reminiscent of Hitler. It chills my bones.

  4. Ed says:

    “Regardless of the apparant importance of his discoveries”; “One can’t deny that he has uncovered some intriguing information”.

    OK, Buzz. I’d construct your arguments with a little more fore-thought. At the moment you seem to be hopping backwards and forwards a bit.

    As regards Mr. Jones’ ego, I think it’s outside of the remit of considering whether or not his information is sound.

    Alex Jone’s credibility is built and sustained on the quality of his information. Without it, his ego is in a very precarious position indeed.

    Ignore the ego, it’s a vehicle: communicate the facts that are arriving in it.

  5. buzz aldrin says:

    Cheap tactics. Attacking my flaky sentence construction so as to dismiss my contribution out of hand.

    Taken out of context those sentences may appear contradictory to you. But, in context they are not mutually exclusive.

    Since when has it been unnacceptable to concede that someone has achieved a handful of interesting discoveries whilst, at the same time questioning the veracity of their message as a whole?

    You have to read between the lines. You can’t ‘ignore the ego’. You have to read between the lines. Jone’s egoistic motivation underscores his message. If you ignore the underlying motivation you run the risk of accepting what he says uncritically. That’s what he wants and that’s dangerous. Question everthing especially people like Jones.

    What he’s selling represents a narrow and distorted view of reality.

    I concede that he has uncovered some interesting nuggets of information, he presents these nuggets along with a lot of fervent, ranting, paranoid rubbish.

    I’m not against jones per se.
    I’m open minded. I call it as I see it.

    Interesting newsweek article suggesting the attraction of so many of the ‘radical films’ available on the internet today:

    Alex Jones …… He certainly is a character. I listened to him interveiw Peter Joseph the Zeitgeist producer about his new movie Zeitgeist Addendum, Alex acted like a school child and really put me off him, he buys and sells gold and sells a whole shit load of fear to go with it, Im not sure what his agenda really is. Never the less he has uncovered alot of sinister activity and has great passion. Hope you get up and running again soon, Im checking back for new vids every day !

  8. Ed says:

    Thanks J. Back up and running right now.

    My point is, it’s easy to shoot the messenger and is a common tactic of those who do not want to hear the message or wish it to be heard. It is not so easy to shoot down the information. And this is something Jones has always been clear on: you can look up the information yourself from highly credible sources. This is all that matters. Mr. Jones is human, like the rest of us. Information, however, doesn’t have a personality to be attacked, it’ll never suffer from name-calling: it’ll just remain there for as long as it can’t be hidden until you have the guts to look at it for what it is.

  9. buzz aldrin says:

    I agree with you ed, information, i.e. raw data is unbiased. Admit it. Jone’s output is far from unbiased, he gives it a sensationalist, paranoid spin. He sells intrigue and fear, and his accolytes are lapping it up.

  10. Ed says:

    Carousel argument. Mainstream media equally guilty of this to their own ends (or those who are bidding high enough).

    I addressed this issue from the beginning. My point remains the same. If you want the last word, be my guest.

  11. Buzz Aldrin says:

    No worries Ed.
    You can have the last word.

    Whoops!
    Looks like I accidentally had the last word.
    Unless, of course, you wish to respond . . .
