David Duke vs Alex Jones

This was too big of a battle to ignore.
http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VuXNMkBJbNg
In the first half hour I noticed Duke lie about the federal reserve and such, and promote sustenance and lie about US birth rates: http://www.forbes.com/sites/neilhowe...e-falls-again/
What can you the audience at home say about this clash of cooks

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much time on his hands.

I think I suggested discovering porn sites in another thread.

So much less damaging to impressionable minds than nazis arguing.

Freezing tomatoes works fine. First blanch and peel, then store in freezer bags. Makes great chili

This is great! Alex Jones claims they wanted him to be a co-host on the Howard Stern show, he was too principled to accept.

I clicked through randomly to 1:09:00 ish, Alex is trying to sell me something that will "supercharge my prostrate, all my glands and stuff" It's terrifying

No that's my spell check I guess.

I really need to call into that show again... claim I disagree so I get to the front of the line! I'll ask "Alex, I see you're selling colon cleansing products on your website... then... why are you still so full of ****?"

I seriously doubt anyone else actually watched it.

Or a fight to the death. That way, at least one of them would be dead, and if the world was really lucky, they'd both inflict mortal wounds on each other.

We don't want them to die... they become caricatures of themselves over time, like Ken Ham and Kent Hovind. It's great... it's like.... Trump winning the nomination. This is a good thing.

Ya know, I intially agreed with you, but now am so convinced that Trump is a loon from hell that I don't want him to get within a 100 miles of the presidency.

Are you insinuating that Duke and Jones are operating at a level of intelligence and maturity above that of a 9 year old?

So is he actually plagiarising someone else's blog and posting it here as his own 'debunking?

(I'm at work and don't really have time to read the whole lot, but if so, that's pretty low.)

But probably explains why the bit I read is in actual English.
