'Radio guy' Alex Jones channels Chavez and rattles Obama

Infowars’ Alex Jones has gotten under Barack Obama's skin. Literally. Jones, the wildly controversial provocateur, had Obama sniffing his own hand during a North Carolina stump speech for Hillary Clinton. Even by the left's standards, that's a creepy thing to do.

It all started on Monday’s broadcast of the Alex Jones Show. The host claimed people in protective detail around Clinton and Obama told him the two high-profile politicians smelled like sulfur. The anonymous sources also used the word "demons" to describe the pair.

Jones' rant prompted a public mockery from Obama during a Greensboro, North Carolina rally the next evening which turned the demon and sulfur references into national headlines. Obama had Hillary supporters laughing with him as he smelled his hand.

Obama mocking his opponents is serious business. Alinsky wrote that it was the radical's most "potent weapon." In this case, however, Obama ended up giving free publicity to a man who has been called every name in the leftist repertoire from "the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America" to bats**t crazy.” Why bother with the outrageous Jones?

Apparently, Donald Trump has Obama so riled up Jones' comments provided the opportunity to remind rally goers the Republican candidate was interviewed by Jones on his show. Following that remark, Obama morphed into his street cadence and said something a little more sinister: 

"Come on, people...democracy does not work if you say stuff like that and apparently there are people who believe that stuff...you can't have leaders who are promoting that because we get so divided." 

What’s Obama’s beef with the demon-sulfur reference?

Obama's now deceased pal Venezuelan socialist president Hugo Chavez believed "stuff like that." Promoting Noam Chomsky's book to the United Nations General Assembly in 2006, Chavez, referring to George W Bush's speech from the day before, said the podium where he was "now standing smelled like sulfur." 

Chavez then announced to the assembly:

The devil came here yesterday, yesterday the devil came here right here, right here and it smells like sulfur still today, yesterday from this roster, the President of the United States, the gentleman who I refer to as the devil.

It’s doubtful then Senator Obama, a man with a communist mentor in Frank Marshall Davis and who wrote in his autobiography he attended socialist meetings while in college, was not aware of Chavez’s devil speech to the UN. So how come Hugo Chavez's ‘divisive’ devil talk did not stop Obama from warming up to the socialist Venezuelan president in 2009 at the Summit of the Americas? He and Chavez looked all chummy as the president accepted an anti-American, Marxist-Leninist book from the leader.

Of course, Obama has no problem with a corrupt, ruthless, socialist dictator calling a Republican U.S. President a sulfur-reeking devil. But how dare a right-wing radio guy hijack Chavez’s imagery and aim it at Clinton and Obama. As a result, Obama couldn’t resist the impulse to speak about this on the national stage. Unfortunately, Obama’s macabre grinning, stuttering, laughter and snarling gave Jones’ assertions about him a smidgeon of credibility.

Jones may be too out there for some people, but in this weirdest of election seasons he deserves an honorable mention for messing with Obama’s head.
