July 4 Civil War

Post by Pyrrho » Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:08 pm

Alex Jones said so, so it must be true.

On Twitter...2nd Civil War Letters are a thing.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Or, rather, was unable to do so due lack of sufficient documentation.

I think what happened was that Alex Jones just misunderstood. His local movieplex was just going to do a special showing of the latest installment of the Captain America series for July 4 and the theater owner was a Democrat.

That would imply that Alex jones:
- has some connection to reality
- made an honest mistake

But it’s 8 AM here on the West Coast and the only Civil War I see is on Netflix. That means it’s 11 back East. Time’s a wasting people, if they are kicking this off today

Maybe it's the civil war Venture Bros. referenced, the "invisible civil war"

I thought I heard shooting outside and felt my building shake but it turns out just to be roofers putting in some overtime at my apartment complex.

too bad

Alex Jones is a supplement huckster that doesn't care about being wrong all the time. He appreciates the attention though.

He thrives on being a broken clock.

Everyone knows that The Prophecy states "And lo when the Eagle shall turn upon himself and devour his own liver it will be at the place where Kit Carson is honored though he never set foot upon its ground"

which is CLEARLY stating that the next civil war would start in Carson City. Duh

THough its already noon here and all I see are the roofers having lunch and people from my complext setting up a community potluck and the swimming pool too jam packed with kids for me to get in a swim. So I think the prophecy may be wrong

His mistake was attaching a specific date to his prediction. Everyone knows that's a bad idea.
