Crazy is endemic among right-wing bloggers. As the public continues to reject their increasingly paranoid and disjointed message, they turn to the one audience that is surfeit with people that will hungrily devour every morsel of illogical babbling: conspiracy theorists. It is therefore understandable that as attention whores like Breitbart recognize that their egotistic agendas lose traction among reasonable people, they begin to pander to a sector of people who not only believe their rantings, but actively support it with paranoid ramblings of their own.
Case in point: Andrew Breitbart’s is the acorn from the Matt Drudge tree for it is common knowledge that Drudge is Breitbart’s mentor.
Drudge is now featuring articles by Alex Jones sycophant Paul Craig Roberts. Drudge has always been a darling of the conspiracy crowd, due to his willingness to publish anything and everything without an ounce of background research. Hence, paranoid articles about flouridated water or the united nations occasionally cropped up on the Drudge Report. So, it’s not entirely shocking that Drudge would reprint Paul Craig Roberts, but it’s notable as Drudge occupies a position of high respect in the conservative blogosphere. The long and short of this latest exhortation is that the US is only seven years away from the complete collapse of infrastructure, order and society– yes, the very same hackneyed premise of terrible B-Movies, survivalist wet dreams and badly-written fiction like the Turner Diaries. This meshes perfectly with Alex Jones’ newest marketing scheme of an “IMMINENT ROAD WARRIOR-LEVEL COLLAPSE” which true patriots can stave off by buying Alex Jones’ latest DVD.
The article in question is: The Year America Dissolved
Here are some bits and pieces of the lunacy rantings of the article:
It was 2017. Clans were governing America. Clans organized around families and individuals who possessed stocks of food, bullion, guns and ammunition.

The first clans organized around local police forces. The conservatives’ war on crime during the late 20th century and the Bush/Obama war on terror during the first decade of the 21st century had resulted in the police becoming militarized and unaccountable.
As society broke down, the police became warlords. The state police broke apart, and the officers were subsumed into the local forces of their communities. The newly formed tribes expanded to encompass the relatives and friends of the police.
But WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!
Goods reappeared in markets under the protection of local warlords. Transactions were conducted in barter and in gold, silver, and copper coins.
Under the article Alex Jones states a incomplete bio of crazy Paul Craig :
Paul Craig Roberts is an economist who served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration. He is published widely in the alternative media, including Infowars.com, and is a frequent guest on the Alex Jones Show. Dr. Roberts’ latest book is How the Economy Was Lost: The War of the Worlds.
Of course what Jones leaves out is Robert’s connections to white supremacy which has been proven with his strong ties to VDare.com, Jared Taylor and American Renaissance, Willis Carto.
So, when Breitbart’s rantings appear on well known racist media we can now understand where the connection is.
