"The ten worst ways your children are being poisoned right now" by Mike Adams of Natural News... there are some valid points or semi-valid points here, but the whole thing is so cherry-picked, over the top and reactionary, it's just too easy to write off as paranoid crankism. Especially the bit about kids being taught (gasp) socialism and communism in schools. I wish!
But the whole tone of the piece is just so typical of what appears on Alex Jones' sites.... just too easy to write off.
Speaking of right-wing cranks--- Ron Paul is a perfect example of this and of course, he is strongly supported by and promoted by Alex Jones. Ron Paul of course has some good points about the American empire and being anti-war and the Federal Reserve, but gets lost in right-wing kookdom and paranoia. Let's not forget even Ron Paul made similar offensive remarks as wingnut Republicans about honest rape. He and Adams really exemplify the problem with Libertarianism. It sounds great in principle but in reality, it's a total fantasy to think everyone will act morally and decently and non-psychopathically in the absence of government oversight.
