That's what i've been saying - especially the 2012 appearance.

I just shared this link, but watch 30 seconds. Billy is having a discussion about free speech and how Rush Limbaugh sucks, but he's entitled to his perspective. Alex jumps in with Gloria Steinem's relationship to the CIA then see how deftly Billy deflects the craziness and brings the conversation back. I found this interview fascinating

It's also ironic how full of SJWs a place like Netphoria is.
I don’t think you understand what an “SJW” is.

This is really his fucking excuse for Trump? Trump IS the establishment. Man, Billy is a moron. Honestly, with the Alex Jones and shapeshifters, I really must come to the conclusion that Billy is not all that well in the head. I can't believe the guy behind these albums that I love is able to defend someone like Trump. Then again, Trump and Billy are both egomaniacal assholes, so Billy liking him kinda makes sense. These whackos love to stick together.

You're missing the point. You're really worked up over Trump. The anti-establishment statement is his reason for not voting and not being a Trump supporter. He's trying to say he doesn't support any mainstream candidate because he is suspicious of the system. It leans more conspiracy theory than Trump supporter, which is why he's friends with Jones. Not because of the Trump thing

the issue with unironically using the term social justice warrior (which is exactly what I called him an idiot for) is hardly the acronym, but thanks for playing.

can't reddit send us better trolls? I'd settle for some that aren't 15, too.

I'm not sure what all the outrage is about. If you guys watched any of the Info Wars appearances, Billy is actually well measured and sensible. Sure, you guys might not agree with some of his points, but you guys are blowing it completely out of proportion. Social Justice Warriors are a growing phenomenon and people are losing their careers from simply saying the wrong thing.

Billy speaking out and appearing on The Alex Jones show is one of the more noble things he's done over the years as far as I'm concerned.... Yes, Alex can definitely be ridiculous at times, but he covers a lot more truth than you'd ever see on CNN and he's entertaining as hell. When he's going on tirades calling Hillary Clinton a demon, it is just humor, it is just performance art... That's not to say that his underlying messages are fake.

It's because Billy wants to be called "William-Patrick" in the press now... This guy just couldn't bring himself to do it as it is ridiculously pretentious. So he just opted to go with "Mr. Corgan".

What our good friends at Hipsters United thought about Billy's first appearance on Alex Jones.

whining about "SJWs" and people getting in trouble for "saying the wrong thing," is just code for "I don't want to have to be sensitive to the pain of minorities" and it comes down to a basic lack of empathy
