Sen. Rand Paul: A Fan of Conspiracy Wacko Alex Jones

Libertarian nut enjoys anti-government conspiracy theories

One of the amazing things about the rise of the far right (and not in a good way) has been the concomitant rise of conspiracy peddler Alex Jones, and today an elected United States Senator, Rand Paul, revealed that he’s a reader of the twisted dishonest rubbish Jones disseminates: Senator Rand Paul Touts False Claim From ‘9/11 Truth’ Conspiracy Site.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is no stranger to extreme positions or conspiratorial thinking. But Paul sunk to a new low last night, using his Senate Twitter account to promote a false report from one of the world’s most noxious conspiracy websites.
Paul appeared amused by an article on infowars.com suggesting the National Weather Service is stockpiling ammunition.

This story is false (a point that Business Insider, who also linked to the story, should correct). In reality, the ammunition was ordered by the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement, but a clerical error in the paperwork indicated otherwise. Worse, the article that Paul linked to was published on the homepage of what the Anti-Defamation League calls “The Conspiracy King.”

Rand’s father Ron Paul is a frequent guest on the Alex Jones show, so this really shouldn’t surprise anyone — but it’s seriously bad craziness just the same.
