Part 2: Know these things about Alex Jones

Now I get personal. For some months, I guest hosted for an hour a week on Infowars.
This was the deal: there was no deal. I could talk about anything I wanted to, for an hour. By myself. I didn’t need to clear the subject beforehand or even mention what I was going to talk about.
We’re talking about a major show here. Lots and lots of listeners.
If I happened to present an issue that was at odds with the way Alex presented it—no problem. Never heard a thing from him or the show’s producers.
About 3 years ago, I had a major problem with censorship. I’m leaving that vague on purpose. It was a persistent problem. When Alex heard about it, he helped me solve it. I didn’t ask for help. He gave it. His help made all the difference. You don’t find that every day.
I finally stopped doing the weekly guest hosting on Infowars because I needed to devote all my time and energy to writing. That was the only reason. The producers and staff at Infowars were terrific pros and very helpful. They made those weekly shots a piece of cake for me. I had a chance to present key issues from my work, past and present, to a completely new audience. It was sensational.
OK, enough of the personal experience for the moment; I’ll get back to that further down in the article. Let me move on to the issue of Alex’s critics and the whole psychology of that situation. Basically, people who whine and moan and accuse and launch really nasty stuff are suffering from “the demand for perfection.”
They demand it from people they consider stars. They never fucking find it, of course, and this puts them into a tizzy. They don’t know what to do. They have a very short-sighted picture of human beings. It’s based on some weird combination of awe and anger.
