What do you expect from the Huffington Post? Like the L.A. Times, The N.Y. Times, and the Washington Post, they have an agenda.

Even for HuffPo, that's way out there - that guy must be smoking crack. His general stars don't earn him a pass.

HuffPo doesn't even bother to hide it, though. They're better than Slate or Salon... but that's about the best you can say about them. All the sanctimonious virtue signaling of the New York Times, all the actual content of Buzzfeed, all the editorializing of the Reddit sewers.

The writer is a legend in his own mind. Google him.
Oh, my. This is from the Wikipedia page about him (emphasis added):
John B. Alexander (born 1937) is a retired U.S. Army infantry officer and colonel and a leading advocate for the development of non-lethal weapons and of military applications of the paranormal. He has written and lectured on the reality of UFOs. He characterizes his career as having "evolved from hard-core mercenary to thanatologist". Alexander figures prominently in journalist Jon Ronson's book The Men Who Stare At Goats (2004), and its related Channel 4 documentaries, which examine the subject of New Age ideas influencing the U.S. military.

Let's see...exploiting the deaths of innocents, willing to gag opponents who disagree, cold-bloodedly callous about their opposition - seems to me he could do a better comparison between ISIS and the Democratic Party.
The comments are way better than the article. I just wish I had it in print so I could make use of it :Flush:

This is the most fallacious piece of tripe I've ever read. And if he's being honest, He could replace the NRA with Every Town for Gun Safety and come up with the same correlation. Of course, honesty and HuffPo are far removed from each other.

I know a lot of people that have been making that connection for a long time. Downright scary. (the people, not the NRA)

Journalism is simply a vehicle for people to have their ideas, thoughts, beliefs and attitudes published and read by others.

It doesn't matter if they are good ideas, bad ideas, factual, lies, well thought out, knee jerk reactions, etc. etc. etc.

HMMMM Sounds a lot like this forum doesn't it?

He can think of himself as he wishes. In real life, he's just a small turd laying in a huge yard.

It must be true if HuffPo wrote it:aargh4: Unfortunately, many of their "true believers" will actually swallow this line of crap.

The comments are telling.

His Bio:

On this path there have been many adventures. Assigned in Thailand he met with Buddhist mystics. In Vietnam, while commanding a Special Forces (Green Beret) A-Team, he had a monastery inside his camp in the Mekong Delta. In 1972 he was one of the first people to explore the unique underwater artifacts that have become known as the Bimini Wall. Many believe this to be remnants of Atlantis. In Hawaii he was the state representative for Silva Mind Control and learned Aikido from the Japanese masters. With Ted Rockwell, (Admiral Rickover's technical director for creating the nuclear Navy) he researched interspecies communications, including diving with dolphins in the wild (when that was still legal).

While in the military he formed an ad hoc interagency group to study aerial phenomena (UFOs). This is a little known aspect of his work as the group insured no paper trail existed that could be traced by outsiders. Col. Alexander briefed many senior officials on this topic. Until recently he worked part-time for the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), a private research organization dedicated to exploring the UFO topic. His book, UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities will be released by St. Martin’s Press, February 2011
Imagine that.

Sounds like a real winner.

Sounds to me like he started smoking dope early in his career and then went on to the harder stuff!!

At least our nation's journalists are fair and balanced.

ISIS And The NRA: Similarities Abound
This guy has a P.H.D. probably in sociology or something equally worthless in the real world. Just another educated fool with an opinion. The good news about option columnists like this guy is that uninformed low information people he would like to reach never read this junk much less any real news. Unless it gets picked up by the AP and makes its way to social media, only educated people that can sort out garbage like this ever read it.

In many ways, this jerk is actually helping the NRA and anyone that can distinguish trash from fact.

His article as ridiculous as it is, may be justifiable to him. However, any astrologist could come up with just as many augmentable parallels. If it smells like crap, but looks like journalism, it's crap.
