Conspiracist Alex Jones: ‘Whites are the New Al Qaeda’

By Leah Nelson on August 31, 2011 - 2:27 pm, Posted in Conspiracies, Extremist Propaganda, White Nationalism

Antigovernment conspiracy theorist Alex Jones seems finally to have crossed the Rubicon of race. Earlier this month, the man who may have done more than any other to popularize “truther” theories about government complicity in 9/11 declared that the U.S. government believes that “whites are the new Al Qaeda.”

The source of Jones’ race paranoia is the Department of Homeland Security’s year-old “If you see something, say something” terrorism awareness campaign. According to DHS’ website, the program is meant to encourage people to consider “behavior, rather than appearance” when considering whether to report apparently “suspicious activity” to authorities. “Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious,” it says. To drive that point home, DHS produced a series of public service announcements such as a 10-minute video released in July featuring mostly white “terrorists,” while the actors portraying citizens who report their suspicious activities are all minorities.

Jones sees this heavy-handedness as evidence of a racist conspiracy to demonize white people. “Far from representing some superficial nod to political correctness, this is in fact a deliberate effort by the feds to characterize predominantly white, middle class, politically engaged Americans as domestic extremists. It’s all part of the agenda to frame dissent against big government as dangerous radicalism,” reads a widely reposted July 18 article on his website, Infowars.

He was still railing on a month later. “Did I not tell you they were gonna switch it from Al Qaeda to the Tea Party? And now you’re seeing it, I told you. … They’re gonna rebrand the war on terror on the constitutionalists,” Jones fulminated on his Aug. 18 radio show. “I’m asking listeners out there…. What do you think of the rebranding that the terrorists aren’t Al Qaeda anymore? It’s that veteran, it’s that gun owner, it’s that farmer … it’s that white person. Whites are the new Al Qaeda.”

“I told you this was coming, I saw it in the memos that were leaked to us,” he claimed. “Now they’re going public, ‘cause they’re getting ready to start the provocateured events and the purely staged events. They’re gonna find mentally ill ex-prisoner white people that they’re gonna recruit in and lead to try to get them to blow up a school bus or something, or to bomb a federal building. And if they can find idiots, they’ll do it that way.”

It is not entirely shocking, given the internal logic of Jones’ antigovernment beliefs, that he appears to be embracing a form of paranoid white nationalism. He has for years flogged racially charged conspiracy theories such as the “Plan de Aztlan,” a supposed plot by Mexico to “reconquer” the American Southwest, and the “Plan de San Diego,” an alleged scheme by undocumented Mexican immigrants to murder all whites over 16. That’s not to mention federal agencies like FEMA, which, Jones has long believed, is plotting to intern dissidents in “death camps.”

Now, veering into racial territory, Jones may have brought a few fellow travelers with him. Last week, William Gheen, head of the nativist extremist group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), made a spectacle of himself by claiming that DHS is preparing for a “conflict” with “white America” — words remarkably similar to those from the Jones camp. Gheen added that “extra-political,” “illegal,” and “violent” methods, or perhaps even a military coup, could be the only way to save the country from the man he characterized as “Dictator Barack Obama.”

Gheen was almost immediately criticized severely for what sounded to many like a call for violence, and responded to his critics in a furious “clarification.”

“Yes, I did mention that the Obama administration, in my opinion, is telegraphing a conflict with white America or white Americans. I say this in response to the recent Homeland Security video being played across the nation titled, ‘See Something, Say Something,’ where almost all of the suspected terrorists are white and all of the people calling the police are minorities,” he fumed. “This video, combined with earlier leaked documents showing Homeland Security demonizing the Tea Party, veterans, ham radio operators, and people that like ’80s movies as potential domestic terrorists, shows a clear pattern of our own government demonizing tens of millions of our own citizens!”

    I just came across this website since I read a comment posted on the Loonwatch website which mainly deals with islamophobia. And ran into this

    All I can say is, the muslims are far more likely to agree with Alex Jones than SPLC. As for the foolish individuals claiming islam this and that, they’ll come to know that Alex Jones rebukes the Tea Party which has been taken over by corporatists that are highly islamophobic instead of government phobic.

    The claim of Alex Jones being concerned about racial bias or rather government pushing the idea of what to expect, is no different than 200 years of arabs and muslims being put in the guise of the evil man in western media. The muslims know what it’s like to be pariahs of a community thanks to governments falsely attributing terror charges against those seeming to be muslims, when instead we all know that it was the government and corporations that benefited from those many acts of murder and destruction, as well as had the ability and motives to do so.

    If a black individual is not a racist himself, they are more likely to support Alex Jones than Obama.

  • juan petro

    I am not certain if Alex is a white Nationalist. I have listened to his show and have yet to hear him say overtly racist things, so it is possible he is a closested racist but lots of times he goes up to that line which makes you stand up in your chair and wonder if he is.

    Jones does have some points, FEMA still has failed to explain its centres that store hundreds of thousands of coffin like structures that were profiled on Jesse Venture Conspiracy theory.

    I don’t believe mexicans have a secret plan to kill all whites. But it is possible that some Mexicans want to take back the southwest just like some southerns want to take over the north but those groups are too small to take seriously.

    If Jones really does believe all the things he says that terrorism is created by the government to take away the right of regular (non arab) Americans, then his conclusion on demonizing white Americans in the movie – while a clear exaggeration- is somewhat properly drawn even if a person was not racist. But I agree with splc that it is going very close to the line of race baiting.

  • A.D.M.

    Phillip, you make me LOL with your comment.Hatred (or hate) is a deep and emotional extreme dislike, directed against a certain object or class of objects. The objects of such hatred can vary widely, from inanimate objects to animals, oneself or other people, entire groups of people, people in general, existence, or the whole world. Though not necessarily, hatred is often associated with feelings of anger and disposition towards hostility against the objects of hatred. Hatred can become very driven. Actions after a lingering thought are not uncommon upon people or oneself. Hatred can result in extreme behavior such as violence, murder and war.

    One can make an observation without being hateful. As for what the SPLC does, if you have no idea, then it’s pointless for me to explain.

  • Lex

    I dont think Jones is racist at all , he is simple the ultimate conspiracy nut, he´s in constant fear and belives every nonsense conspiracy theory he comes cross

  • phillip

    It is hard to take any person with a grain of salt with a “hate agenda”.

    Define hate.

    Is an observation the same as a hateful act?

    Who decides if somebody hates?

    Is the SPLC, or individuals within it, capable be defined as hateful?

    If there are forms of hate you do not cover, explain why.

    At what point does the hunt for hate become a hateful thing within itself?

    If there are people who hate the SPLC, shouldn’t they be counted and a statistic given on this website, e.g. “the number of people who HATE the SPLC now stands at …” That way the SPLC can do something about the hate. Pass a law: “You have no right to hate the SPLC” or something like that.

    What good does the SPLC do?

  • skinnyminny

    Hey F-Islam,
    Yeah, try going to Pakistan and say this!

    And as far as Jones having far more followers, well, that just goes to show that a lot of people in this country really do have issues. Why wouldn’t you want to read the neatly written paragraphs? Is it that your brain is not wired to do this (just repeating what some people in the media says about the brain being wired to do or not do certain things).

    Here’s a good quote that I like to share with people,

    Watch your thoughts, they become your words;
    watch your words, they become your actions;
    watch your actions, they become your habits;
    watch your habits, they become your character;
    watch your character for it becomes your destiny.

  • skinnyminny

    Dick Lancaster,
    where have you been Boo?

    Oh, I am laughing that you say the SPLC is obsessed with Tim McVeigh and US military, and that OK city points to radical islam, you’re kidding right? Yes, I am laughing, you make me laugh. Welcome back!

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Dick, did you actually READ the DHS report, which was compiled under the Bush administration, or are you just repeating what dozens of right-wing pundits claimed about the report? Also, the SPLC has highlighted Islamic terrorists(who are right-wing by definition), numerous times. You’ve been on here long enough to know that.

    Oh and to the user “F-Islam”, thanks for hilariously representing the typical Jones cultist.

  • F-Islam

    Alex Jones has far more followers/donations than this crappy organization, so people are clearly voting with their feet and wallets on this issue….. and honestly SPLC needs to put a limit on how many words these posts contain, i want to read what other people have to say but DAMN not 30 different 5-paragraph essays

  • TC

    Ooh yeah, whites are so downtrodden these days. When will a white male ever get a shred of luck? One day a white man will become President or become CEO of a major financial institution or receive the benefit of the doubt in a legal case. Our time will come!!!

  • Dick Lancaster

    I don’t know who Alex Jones is but the DHS did produce a report in April, 2009 labeling right wing lone wolf extremists as “the most dangerous terrorist threat” to America. That report relied extensively on the SPLC’s obsession with Tim McVeigh and the US military.

    A detailed study of the OK City bombing makes it clear that outside help was required to pull off that attack and all the evidence points to Islamic radicals.

    Hear no evil, see no evil is the guiding tenent of the SPLC’s view of Islamic murderers.

  • skinnyminny

    Why should we ignore this ‘crazy’ man? For the last decade, that’s exactly what we tried to do, is ignore people like this, and look where it has gotten us!

    These people should not be ignored, they are threat to our democracy, our country. Therefore, they should be watched and locked up if necessary. This has nothing to do with free speech, this has to do with the stability of our country.

    As far as Jones, didn’t he used to be a CIA agent? If so, this is even more of a reason to watch these folks. These are the type of people that are running for elections, or have been elected or appointed to different areas of our government.

  • WMDKitty

    So… am I the only one laughing at the person/people defending Mr. Jones?

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Last post…I’m only doing this because I predict that I’m going to get inundated with more Jones cultists for daring to question their glorious leader.

    If you are pissed off about what I have said about his holiness, Alex Jones, ask yourself these questions before calling me an ignorant sheep and/or accusing me of working for the CIA/Mossad/Skull and Bones.

    1. Jones has alleged in the past that many different groups are trying to create a one-world government. These theories have varied, as can be seen here: http://conspiracies.skepticpro.....on/page/4/

    QUESTION: Who exactly is trying to create this government, and above all- WHY?! Claims that shadowy groups are trying to bring about a world-wide government pre-date Jones by several decades. Virtually all those who made these claims, like Jones, claimed that one-world government was just around the corner. Yet here were are in 2011 and we’ve got various power blocs competing as they did in the past.

    So to repeat:

    1. WHO is creating a one-world government, and WHY?
    2. What possible advantages could there be from a one-world government?

    Next QUESTION: Why would the US government want to implement martial law? Countries typically do this during emergencies and when there is a breakdown of order. A government does not just enact martial law for no reason, as this makes its rule more vulnerable.

    Again, I repeat the question because experience has taught me that Jones fans don’t read anything that goes against his claims very carefully:

    Q: WHY would the US government want to implement martial law without ample reason?

    Next, let’s talk about Jones results. Jones claims he is exposing the truth. If so, how many indictments have been made due to Jones’ research? Oh naturally Jones can claim that the system is corrupt, and thus he can “prove” someone is guilty of murder or whatever, but they won’t be prosecuted or even investigated. Don’t you think that is a little convenient?

    So the QUESTION is: What results has Jones achieved? Have any of the “evildoers” he “exposes” been punished? Have any laws he rails against been repealed specifically due to his activism?

    Ok last question: Jones and people like him often claim that their targets “admit” to their schemes publicly sometimes. A good example of this is George Bush Sr. invoking the term “New World Order.” QUESTION: Are the conspirators covering up their secret, or are they openly declaring it for some unknown reason?

  • Charles Dan Austin

    The only way to deal with Alex and people like him is to not pay any attention to them to start with. The man obviously has no education and shouldn’t be given the time of day.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “I was not very worried about the alarm and after the deadline, when nothing came true, that Jones guy said that he had saved those 200million lives, because he made the governments plan public before it could be executed.”

    Jones can rely on the same techniques as fortune tellers, mediums, faith healers, and other con-men. Let’s take the example of a faith-healer or similar quack. Studies show that diseases and various conditions tend to ebb and flow, meaning that they grow in severity, but they can also appear to get better temporarily. So we get the following scenario:

    1. Quack gives treatment, patient recovers completely- THE TREATMENT WORKS!
    2. Quack gives treatment, nothing happens. Quack claims that treatment has “stabilized” the condition, preventing it from getting worse.
    3. Quack gives treatment, nothing happens and it gets worse(or short recovery before getting worse)- the treatment was applied too late!!

    In other words, the Quack/faith healer ALWAYS “wins.”

    Jones, and others like him, can use the same technique. For example, people often ask why doesn’t the all-powerful NWO just bump him off. It’s a good question, but Jones most likely knows that even if he dies of 100% natural causes, his believers will suspect foul play anyway.

    Jones can take any “warning sign” of impending martial law, and when said martial law, curfews, and round-ups don’t actually materialize, he can claim it’s because he blew the lid on the whole thing.

    Jones also “stacks” his conspiracy theories, meaning that he’ll use conspiracy theories as evidence for other conspiracy theories: e.g. It’s easy to believe that 9-11 was an inside job, after all, our government was responsible for the Pearl Harbor attack. This means that in order to debunk one theory, you have to dive into a bunch of others.

    Jones doesn’t give a damn about “freedom” or “liberty”. He is a businessman who understands that fear sells. He also understands that people want human faces on their social problems. In reality, the actors within the system are partially driven by conditions outside of their control. Jones gives the people villains with names. He gives them a motive like in the movies- power. He tells them what they are capable of, such as murdering 3,000 Americans, and what they are not capable of, such as killing one loudmouth who continually “exposes” all their plots every day for 15 years. The monster you know is more comforting than the one you don’t know.

    Anyway, here’s an excellent source exposing Jones’ lies, logical fallacies, and sloppy “journalism.”

    Enjoy.

    “You are fools for thinking Alex Jones is a fraud. I have personally researched everything that he has posted online. ”

    Why is it so many conspiracy enthusiasts always claim to have “personally researched” stuff, as though we’re supposed to imagine them working in lab-coats as opposed to what they are actually doing- watching other conspiracy Youtube videos.

    “To the best of my knowledge, it is all correct and reliable information.”

    If you go by the sources St. Jones approves, no doubt.

    ” Stop believing the lies and help remove the corrupt bankers,politicians and judges that have destroyed my beloved republic. ”

    Please tell us when your “beloved republic” existed. Pick a year please.

    @CM- It’s a good thing you put in that irony warning. I was about to drop the hammer.

  • Katia

    Well, while the SPLC is “Keeping an Eye on the Radical Right” who’s watching the “Radical Left” ??? Hmmm???
    Anyhow, you’re all crazy!
    Just don’t forget to watch the other hand, as the saying goes.

  • CM

    Why shouldn’t white people be demonized as violent and dangerous? After all, they gave us gladiator contests, the Inquisition, the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, the U.S. Civil War, Wounded Knee, the Amritsar Massacre, the Holocaust, the Gulags, Hiroshima/Nagasaki, Waco and Oklahoma City. And that’s just a small sampling. So yes, absolutely, keep a close eye on them and definitely report their activities to the authorities, even if those authorities are mostly white people themselves. (Belated irony warning for anyone who needs it.)

  • DutchPointer

    The ever repeated error anti-government conspiracists make is that they don’t have the slightest idea how limited government’s power is by the laws and manners of democracy and justice. Of all the powers, the power of the educated and informed voting people is the most mighty one. Democracy, education and information are the pillars of the constitutional state.
    Speaking about the pope Stalin asked: “where are is armies?”
    Speaking about conspiracies I have to ask: “where are the voters?”

  • tyrone mixon

    Ruslan Amirkhanov summed it up very well. I was an everyday Jones listener for about a year and I’m Black.

    Alex Jones does nothing but throw things against the wall and see what sticks. Though he is well versed in history and most aren’t, so of course they’ll believe what he says. People wanna follow someone and especially who pinpoint the source of their miseries. Jones is nothing but a self important blow hard who misses not one opportunity to toot his own horn under the guise of humility. He has been saying the same thing for years and hardly any of it happening. That’s why I stop listening, everyday was a crisis and if we didn’t warn everybody we know then hell would freeze over and the planet will crack open and swallow us. I mean every single day was nothing but RED ALERT RED ALERT!!! And the way he treats his callers, it amazes to me that anybody calls in to that show. His ego is very fragile, don’t believe it? Call his show and disagree with him. He will fall apart and go on and on about what the person who disagreed just said. You could have listened to his show in 2001, then not listened until the today and would not have missed one thing.

  • DutchPointer

    Isn’t that guy Alex Jones, isn’t that the same guy who fore-said that in the first year of President Obama his administration should have killed 200millions of the American people before the half of October.

    Yeah, it did not happen, but there were 200 concentration-camps (really with photos!) and complete destruction-industries and the job should have been done by an army of more than a million foreigners, already within the USA during Bush’ second term.
    I was not very worried about the alarm and after the deadline, when nothing came true, that Jones guy said that he had saved those 200million lives, because he made the governments plan public before it could be executed.
    Do you understand that it makes me angry?
    Yes, that patient should have been nursed with love and compassion and, of course a lot of medicines, to keep him satisfied. What are you Americans? No compassion with the brain-sick individuals?

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “Rusian:
    Are you making money off this in some way, or just ignorant?”

    Typical conspiracy theorist- anyone who challenges the conspiracy theory might be in on it.

    “The increasing stages of martial law are quite evident:
    -New Orleans Katrina gun round-ups (when citizens needed guns for self-defense the most) and mass illegal detentions of our own refugees”

    This is not martial law. Martial law means the military rule. Katrina was also an emergency situation.

    “-Republican/Democrat Conventions “Free Speech” zones
    -Pittsburg round-ups with police-violent mass arrests of innocent bystander citizens”

    This is not martial law. You need a dictionary.

    “-violent raids of perfectly legal Raw Milk cooperatives by FDA
    -arbitrary raid of Gibson Guitars despite their use of certified forest products”

    Raids by the military?

    “This growing list does not include the continued police-state tactics used in the so-called “drug war” for many years. This is unconstitutional violence against American citizens of all colors – poor and middle class – but mainly minorities!”

    I agree that the war on drugs tramples all over peoples’ rights. It’s still not martial law.

    “Alex Jones has strongly defended the rights of minorities and championed their causes. He is not a racist.”

    Why are so many of his fans hardcore racists, and why is he a friend of the racist politician Ron Paul?

    “Alex Jones works hard on a lot of important issues. It may be time for him to step back and take a breather.”

    Alex Jones makes up fantasies to sell to gullible people who don’t want to take the time to learn how the world works. He prevents change, he doesn’t drive it.

    I absolutely think he is, he whips radical white supremacists into a frenzy with his style of paranoid hogwash…the Arizona Minutemen that murdered Brisenia and Raul Flores were influenced by Alex Jones delusional rantings..so his is not harmless psychobabble it pushes the feeble minded into acts of atrocity…disgusting, He has blood on his hands…..

  • Rob Levy

    Jones seems to be as much a self publicist out to sell product as he is a nut.His conspiracies are almost funny at times,though one must be careful as they are also quite dangerous…and he ends up highlighting organisations and events that are almost irrelevant at the expense of locating where power really lies i e Jones is obsessed with Bohemian Grove “Satanists “Also his theories are poor from the point of view of producing hard evidence,as not a shred of proof is required as Jones will always point to a cover up by “them”..Jones reached a low in my opinion when he pedalled that standard U S right wing nonesense that socialism and fascism are the same thing..really Alex I live in the UK and funnily enough we have had a publicly funded universal healthcare system for years and yet no storm trooper has ever come to kick my – butt,despite my obvious Jewish ancestry.I doubt that Jones has ever read the serious authors on Nazism…Ian Kershaw or Daniel Goldhagen,if he had then he wouldn’t talk such rubbish.

  • legalhound

    The dog whistle key word here was politically engaged, which stands for the Tea Party and they don’t seem to understand the definition of peaceful discourse. Bringing guns with you to a political event is not peaceful, the gun is meant to intimidate so it is a direct threat to whichever politician is speaking-therefore it would be criminal activity – potentially a terrorist act…as the intent is to intimidate. All of the racist and nativist groups also fall into this category the moment they start doing stupid stuff (like the Klan burning a cross) on public property. The goal is to frighten as many people as possible so the thugs can have their way.
    The conspiracy theories are going to get really thick because those of us who are Independents have repudiated the Tea Party and have expressed our disgust with their actions in a very loud chorus. They have lost support and a dying animal makes lots of noise and lashes out blindly-which at times can make them dangerous. Just know that the Tea Party which all of these fringe groups have been using to recruit from is now falling apart because the crazy right wing ideas and rhetoric turns Independent voters off and politics has now become a fact of whoever gets the Independents wins.

    The SPLC is doing a fair job educating police about race issues, but what about the constitutional rights of all citizens? Leaving that all to the ACLU?

    Alex Jones has strongly defended the rights of minorities and championed their causes. He is not a racist.

    SPLC needs to take these factors into account before demonizing those who are merely reacting to the above facts. I’m not saying that racial references like, “Whites are the new Al-Queda”, are okay here, but that the video Alex was reacting to probably could have been more racially balanced.

    Alex Jones works hard on a lot of important issues. It may be time for him to step back and take a breather.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    One more thing…since Alex Jones’ appearance on the net, he has been ranting about martial law being just around the corner…for 15 years. What’s this about his 85% correct record again? What’s taking the martial law so damned long?

    Jones’ cultist followers think they are more enlightened, but in fact they are far more gullible and sheepish than most people.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    “Lets see… Alex was right about 9/11 predicting it before hand.”

    Let’s see some proof.

    ” He was right about Gulf of Tonkin being staged.”

    The Gulf of Tonkin incident was not “staged”. A sonor operator thought he heard torpedoes coming toward the Maddox. Why was he so sure? Because the Maddox HAD been fired on with torpedoes the day before. Robert MacNamera admitted this, before Jones was on the air.

    ” He was right about buying gold when it was $300/OZ, now its over 1800.”

    Alex Jones was the only one who predicted gold would go up, right. It is in Jones’ interest to push gold, so he can dump it as soon as it peaks.

    ” He was right about Obama backtracking on his campaign promises and increasing the military presence in the Middle East.”

    A LOT of people predicted Obama would reneg on his promises. Even more people pointed out that Obama never made many promises, such as pulling out of the Middle East.

    ” He was right about the purposeful outsourcing of American jobs.”

    This had already begun long before Alex Jones was on the air. Jones could have easily read some business publications and learned that this would be a trend.

    ” He was right about the Patriot Act being used against Americans.”

    Right, because only Alex Jones suggested that would happen.

    ” He was right about every major act of domestic terrorism in the last 20 years being carried out by the federal government.”

    Nope. Wrong on all counts. You really think we’re stupid enough not to notice you sneaking that in? A better question is, “Does Alex Jones believe that any terrorist attack was carried out by terrorists.”

    ” He was right about the Bilderberg group. ”

    Could you be more specific?

    “He is right over 85% of the time!”

    In Fantasy Land, perhaps. In the real world no. Alex Jones is a savvy businessman/cult leader.

    “…conversation instead of covering his record of accuracy and the governmental crimes he has helped expose. ”

    If Alex Jones is successfully “exposing” all these crimes, then why…

    1. ..have no indictments been handed down for the crimes he has exposed? Oh right, because the conspiracy covers everything up, including in the courts.

    2. …hasn’t Alex Jones been called as an expert witness on any of this stuff?

    3. ….hasn’t Alex Jones been killed, or had an unfortunate “accident”? A government as powerful as the one he preaches about should be able to bump him off and make it seem like an accident without any problems.

  • INFOCON

    Lets see… Alex was right about 9/11 predicting it before hand. He was right about Gulf of Tonkin being staged. He was right about buying gold when it was $300/OZ, now its over 1800. He was right about Obama backtracking on his campaign promises and increasing the military presence in the Middle East. He was right about the purposeful outsourcing of American jobs. He was right about the Patriot Act being used against Americans. He was right about every major act of domestic terrorism in the last 20 years being carried out by the federal government. He was right about the Bilderberg group. He is right over 85% of the time! Yet articles like these try to demonize him and single out devisive issues in order to compartmentalize the conversation instead of covering his record of accuracy and the governmental crimes he has helped expose. Alex Jones isn’t the enemy. Debunked disinformation fringe blogs like this one are.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Demilynn, he’s not being accused of demonizing whites, he being accused, quite justifiably, of claiming that whites are persecuted. Also, could you possibly explain how “Obama’s rhetoric” is fueling the racist movement in the country. Obama didn’t have to say anything to be hated by those types.

    Besides, Obama’s actual rhetoric equates to doing whatever the Republicans tell him to.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Definitely a dog whistle. If we were dogs, that would sound like an air-raid siren.

  • Demilynn

    He IS white. So he’s not trying to demonize whites. He’s putting the Tea Party Michelle Bachmann supporters on blast. There is a racist element in our country that has been emboldened by the rhetoric the Obama administration has frothed up. It’s obvious, no matter how loudly you attempt to lie to the contrary. The KKK now has a voice. Thanks the the Koch Brother funded, billion dollar think tank fueled Tea Party.

  • Gregory

    Jones has a history of dog whistle politics, pandering to his predominately white audience. Which is ironic, since Al Qaeda is roughly translated from Arabic to mean “The Base”.

    I don’t think Jones was trying to race bait. As crazy as he is, I think the point he was making is that everyone is a potential terrorist.

    Profiling is happening on all races. Most domestic terrorists are white and foreign terrorists are Arab. We have a constitution. The Lone Wolf provision of the Patriot Act threatens the liberties of all classes of people.
    NO profiling period!!!

    Still Jones went to far.
