    1 thought on “The Elephant in the Room

    1. Sandy Hook is a synthetic, completely fake, with actors, in my view manufactured I couldn t believe it at first I knew they had actors there, clearly, but I thought they killed some real kids Alex Jones, January 2015 Alex Jones is basically the most irresponsible man I have ever met He uses his powers to inflame paranoia He boldly makes stuff up to suit his weird agenda Alex eschews facts and reason Jon Ronson, September 2016And Donald Trump, a creature who is dangerously close to becoming the [...]

    2. In The Elephant in the Room, Jon Ronson takes a look at the alt right, a formerly fringe group that has risen to take control of the Republican Party at the same time that Donald Trump has ascended to be its candidate Unfortunately, Ronson s piece is a rushed collection of obvious observations on American politics that s solely out there to capitalise on the election Ronson s in to the alt right is Alex Jones, the human turd who runs the conspiracy drivel show InfoWars among other deplorable out [...]

    3. It s almost like the far right inhabit a parallel dimension with its own institutions, its own history and its own I hesitate to use the term knowledge It s a place where truth is overrated, where empirical evidence means nothing, where global warming isn t happening, where governments stage school shootings to take citizens guns away, where trickle down economics actually works and where, implausibly, white males are a disenfranchised group under attack This is what makes Donald Trump so shocki [...]

    4. I will read and enjoy basically anything Jon Ronson puts out, and this was a really good glimpse into how exactly Trump managed to get anywhere close to where he is right now.

    5. A very short piece like a chapter in his books than a book in itself about the influence of the alt right on Trump s presidential campaign.Having previously come into contact with Alex Jones, the alt right conspiracy theorist and talk show host, while writing a 2000 book, Ronson realised that he had a way into the mindset of those involved in the Trump campaign and having secured access to Jones, he also managed to gain access to Roger Stone, a close confidant of the presidential nominee, while [...]

    6. Now it all seems like a dream within a dream, the presidential race of 2016 Unfortunately, we are still stuck in that inner dream, will be for the next four years This longform piece of journalism by the king of weird liberal journalism isn t really about Trump It s about Alex Jones, the demented soul behind Info Wars, a psychotic fringe media website that peddled a lot of the fake news and conspiracy theories that helped win Trump his new fuhrership And like most of Jon Ronson s work, it s jus [...]

    7. A very quick read, almost a longform magazine piece The Elephant in the Room is Jon Ronson exploring the culture of the alt right and the rise of Trump through professional radio conspiracy salesman Alex Jones Ronson met Jones back in the 90 s when Ronson was researching his book Them Adventures with Extremists and he invited the young Alex Jones to help him sneak into Bohemian Grove to watch CEO s and politicians take plave in an owl ritual involving burning a human effigy Ronson re connects wi [...]

    8. Alex is basically the most irresponsible man I have ever met He uses his powers to inflame paranoia He boldly makes stuff up to suit his weird agenda Alex eschews facts and reason and he definitely should not have political sway Kindle Locations 42 44 This book is mainly about crazy man Alex Jones, and maybe his influence on Trump But really it is all about Trump It is always about Trump That is the sad thing living in the world now, everything is about Trump whether you want it to be or not.I c [...]

    9. Too journalistic At best, it is good for a little entertainment however, by exaggerating, showing off and reflecting on only a small part of reality, it is impossible to picture the whole reality In other words, by the same level of analytical depth and maneuvering on selected events, it is easy to refute any political figure or idea.To be influential, the author puts too much focus on anger, violence and racism to denounce Trump s campaigns At some point, he even criticizes a bunch of journali [...]

    10. I read this for a few reasons 1 I had already bought it on Kindle, so it s not like donating it or giving it away was an option , so even after reading So You ve Been Publicly Shamed which was okay, but I wanted it to be better and The Psychopath Test which was not good at all and deciding I wasn t a Ronson fan, I figured I might as well read it.2 It s only 44 pages.3 And I m behind on my Reading Challenge.4 It s only going to get less timely.None of those reasons being Because I thought I would [...]

    11. What if Alex Jones and his audience were in the White House What if Roger Stone types were there too That s the scary conclusion to Ronson s latest, The Elephant in the Room And that s a horrible thought.Let s stop short of fearing an American Hitler is here in the form of Trump Ronson makes it clear, that is not what we re facing with a Trump presidency But if Trump were to fill his cabinet with Jones types, well, it s a scary thought indeed Imagine policy built on misinformation, propaganda, a [...]

    12. Ronson at it againLove Robson s writing and was excited to see what he would do with a smaller format I wasn t disappointed Once again, he manages to paint a balanced picture without compromising his tone or perspective.

    13. Vou recomendar esse Kindle Single s o s umas 50 p ginas pra todo mundo interessado em ler um pouquinho sobre as figuras mais bizarras que cercam ajudaram a eleger o Drumpf Muito medo.

    14. But the alt right s appeal remains marginal because the huge majority of young Americans like multiculturism They aren t paranoid or hateful about other races Those ideas are ridiculous to them The alt right s small gains in popularity will not be enough to win Trump the election This is not Germany in the 1930.Hm So obivously this was written before the election, which I didn t realize until this exact paragraph very close towards the end of the book I guess this is what happens when you buy bo [...]

    15. The 45th POTUS has said and done so many despicable things over the past year that it can be difficult to keep it all in your head When I was reading It Can t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis a few weeks ago, it occurred to be that the only tactic that Buzz Windrip the fictional dictator of the United States employed in the novel that the Trump campaign had not replicated in real life was the creation of a personal army Then, reading The Elephant in the Room , I was reminded of the Republican campa [...]

    16. 3.5 Stars This was written and published before the election, and it s absolutely terrifying to read now that we re living through a Trump presidency.

    17. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is utterly confused as to how Trump could possibly be President of the US It shows some of the sick people Trump gets his information from Alex Jones from Infowars and Roger Stone One claimed that Sandy Hook was a fake propaganda event with actors and invented children The other used to be a lobbyist for Trumps casinos and war criminals Great influences Trump.

    18. Ronson s covering of a fringe movement around Trump who is now president elect The kind of paranoid extremists he used to lampoon are now at the center of power Get your vomit bag out we are in for serious turbulence.

    19. I read this because I m going through JR s entire back catalogue but the election of that pumpernickel turdbag and the shrieking buttholes who helped is still pretty raw for me and took away most of the fun I know Jon Ronson s thing is a gentle study of the human condition but his genuine affection for Alex Jones grated, if only because I envied his ability to separate the man himself from the myth and mania I would have definitely used my interviewing opportunity to throw a bucket of bull sperm [...]

    20. This is my third book of Non Fiction November, though this was admittedly only around 50 pages The Elephant in the Room describes Jon Ronson s experience of the Trump campaign and his view of the relationship between Donald Trump and Alex Jones.Being from the UK, I wasn t really aware of Alex Jones pre election so this was an interesting read However, this was hindered by the shortness of the book because I feel that Ronson couldn t go into too much depth.Overall I would recommend this book and [...]

    21. Ronson in high form, with all the quirky observations, awkward interactions, and revealed strangeness one has come to expect from him This brief window into the height of the Trump campaign feels voyeuristic, and with hindsight and the election over it inspires all the queasiness of watching a car accident and knowing that the passengers will not walk away alright.

    22. This, like many of Jon Ronson s other works, is well written, clever, and humorous It s a short book and still carries with it the cautious optimism that preceded Trump s presidency I m hoping that Ronson is working on a longer version that continues to explore the alt right s disturbing inner workings.

    23. Excellent, but short I would love if Ronson wrote an entire book about the alt right, as they seem to become relevant or at least, loud these days It s quite terrifying to read a book that is so spot on I couldn t believe it was published before the results of the election Scary.

    24. Ronson s gleeful wit burns as bright as ever A short but very satisfying read It demands a sequel Ronson s great talent is his fairness and his incredible eye for comic and tragic detail often in one single detail.

    25. En single, der giver et godt og underholdende indblik i infowars folkene, der omgiver Trump Den er skrevet som jeg forms reportage med udgangspunkt i Jon Ronsons eget venskab ish med Alex Jones, og som altid skriver Ronson letl seligt og morsomt Man skal dog ikke forvente den store objektivitet Det er en klar fortale for Hillary Men det er trods alt sv rt at bebrejde ham.

    26. The idea of Donald Trump and Alex Jones and Roger Stone and Stephen Bannon having power over us that is terrifying.well, terrified we are
