It's really more the side of the aisle on which Alex Jones is seen as a legitimate source of news and actually has political sway. 

Is 3 people considered a “side of the aisle”?

Its an unrelated point. It’s pretty jarring to see political polarization in terrorist.

I've seen at least 30 people with InfoWars bumper stickers since Trump got elected.

In December 2015, Jones says he initially "formed a bond" with Donald Trump, after the presidential candidate appeared on The Alex Jones Show, with Trump stating "Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down."

The recent mass shootings are appalling. 

What I dont get is peoples reactions to these events, compared to their non reaction to the constant shootings in cities like Baltimore, Chicago, St Louis, etc. 

Why does the latter not garner the same reaction? IDGI

These suburban mass shootings seem more sensiless, while gang violence seems more ‘deserved’ I guess, idk. Also general murder rates are down while these shootings are happening more it seems. There are probably lots of political reasons too

Both are pretty horrible

That makes sense but  I guess I view both as sensiless.

There are lots of innocent victims who arent in gangs but are caught in the cross fire. And even then, a lot of people in gang culture are victims of said culture and predestined into the life.

Joe Biden just said Houston and Michigan. So this is a beyond stupid conversation.

You said yourself all pundits suck so I understand. Just know he is equally loathed by classical conservatives. His niche is more with the conspiracy theory crowd.

This is very good. We should make examples of these people. They should be executed within a year, not thirty years late (or never).

I'd entertain the idea of torture too.

People just panic buying...

That shit happens after every mass shooting, when the president hints at anything related to gun control.  Not a big deal at all

Watch his interview w/ Joe Rogan.  The guy is a certified psychopath.

I thought it was common knowledge that only window lickers listened to his show.

Un-ironically: Firing Squad is likely the most humane execution method.

Yes. People with money respond to what the president says by buying and selling stocks, because they understand that his words have power. Are you actually having trouble grasping this?

...which is why I said this country is fucked. Blaming video games and not guns is absolutely laughable and only a moron would make that claim.

Also, people wouldn’t buy stocks into guns if the President came out and said they’re going to do hardcore gun reform, what kind of sense would that make lol. More like a sigh of relief and business as usual.
