Will Texe Marrs be the next to leave Jonestown?
Over the last two months, two prominent U.S. patriot voices have spoken out against popular radio show host Alex Jones over his alleged Zionist shilling and it leaves one wondering who will be next.
Reverend Ted Pike of the National Prayer Network is the latest voice to speak out against Alex Jones, his silence on the Jewish question, his vague and untimely criticism of Israel, and his defense of the terrible Flotilla incident.
Before Pike, it was Michael Rivero, webmaster of WhatReallyHappened.com, who could not stand the counter-intelligence put out by Jones and the GCN Network. Rivero has now left GCN and joined RBN with Jeff Rense, another patriot voice who worked in tandem with Alex Jones on the Genesis Communications Network.
There isn't much left of GCN. Jones seems to have segregated himself by not discussing the Jewish question and instead speaking vaguely of an all-encompassing, faceless conspiracy with no names and no real identity. Jones has his listeners believing that the allegedly "Germanic" Bilderbergers and Dick Cheney are running the New World Order conspiracy.
But there is one person left in the Jones camp: Texe Marrs, a Texan pastor and long-time friend of Alex Jones. Jones' earlier video presentations strongly resembled those of Marrs and Marrs is said to have wed Alex with his Jewish wife Violet (Kelly). Marrs and Jones both live in Austin, Texas.
Many in the patriot community, who have long known Alex to be a Zionist (now confirmed by old footage of Alex talking of his Zionism), have been questioning Marrs and why he hasn't disassociated from Jones. Marrs's informative radio shows and documentaries certainly do not refrain from exposing Israel, the Jewish religion, and the Zionist movement, so why is Marrs still hanging on?
Marrs came close at one point with the Jason Bermas incident last year n Bermas virtually exposed himself as a Zionist, and Texe Marrs publicly called him out on it. But Marrs went no further than that and to the source, which was really Alex Jones. Bermas was speaking as a co-host on the Alex Jones show at the time of the incident. Bermas basically called all critics of Israel the magical and all-too cliche smear "Anti-Semitic," and told an anti-Israel caller to kill himself by putting a toaster in the bathtub with him.
When will Marrs speak out? What is he waiting for?
Perhaps Pike, a Christian like Marrs, and his recent public outcry will pave the way for Marrs to realize that Jones has taken advantage of Marrs' loyalty and friendship for too long.
The Alex Jones ship continues to sink further and further. Jones has lost respect everywhere you look. He has a real lack of balanced guests on his show, his listeners are naive and anarchistic, and academic types laugh at him; however, Jones and GCN have a full slate of high-paying advertizers and the mainstream media and Hollywood seem to have an affinity for Jones. Don't count on the recent departures from GCN shutting down Jonestown.
