I’m not so sure this episode gets all that deep…and for sure, a number of commenters took issue with this episode…and not over trivial things. I would agree, this is not a hard hitting interview…It does not focus on various issues, which concern a lot of us…issues which a lot of us really wish we would see more informed discussion about.
This interview with Reza Aslan, mainly sticks with all the points which I think most of us can already agree upon…as in, they are obvious to any thinking, rational human being, who possesses some degree of social experience. There weren’t any really hard or inconvenient questions asked here.
…And the comments about atheists [or “the new atheists”]…while I appreciated them on some level, I do think it was unfair to equate “the new atheists” with merely tearing down what others have built.
I think, this episode may still be worth listening too.

The “Pedo-Run Government”…
…which is throwing pedophiles into prison, left and right…and perpetually inventing new excuses to imprison, cripple and demonize pedophiles…?…
I almost fell over, when I heard Alex mention gay sex [prostitutes]…because it seems, since he came online, he wont mention gays and lesbians in any way that directly disparages them…But if you knew him from his short wave radio days, you know he absolutely would not allow an episode to pass, without attacking gays and lesbians…usually, numerous times, in every single episode.
If Alex Jones were behaving today as he did during his short wave radio days…”Infowars” would be identified as a hate group.
This says an awful lot about his true resolve.
One thing to remember about Alex Jones, is that he attaches himself to whatever social issue [or phobia] is most easy to exploit in the moment, and distances himself from any issue that will gain him to much trouble…Which is why he just talks about the fringe government conspiracies, today.
One of the things Alex Jones built his reputation, persona, business [or whatever it happens to be] upon…is the intolerance and smearing of sexual minorities…including mainstream gays and lesbians.
Today…if you only know this guy from his YouTube videos, you would be hard pressed to know anything about that.
Alex tries to put himself over as a decent, on the level person…when he is not.
He will say anything, or refrain from saying something, depending on whether he thinks he can get away with it.
…And that, my friends, is not integrity.
