The Underground Bunker hopes you are about to enjoy a wonderful holiday weekend, and we offer you this treat as you prepare for family, food, and fun. (We’ll assume that our non-U.S. readers know that this is a big four-day weekend here.)
We couldn’t think of a better way to send you on your holiday than with a video that came to our attention last night. It’s from last week’s brutal display of police misconduct when some peaceful protesters found themselves on the receiving end of shocking government atrocities in the city of Dallas.
Wait, you didn’t hear about that?
Well, that’s no surprise, because the New World Order didn’t want you to know that crusading hero and radio host Alex Jones was the victim of shocking police barbarity, and it was all caught on tape.
Jones, the Austin-based radio maverick, had staged a rally in Dallas last Friday as nearby, a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination was being held by city officials. With a gaggle of his followers at his side, Jones bravely led a march to protest the government’s many lies and obfuscations about Kennedy’s death, when they were met by sheriff’s deputies who had the temerity to trample on Jones’s free speech rights.
As can be seen in videos of the event, Jones was the victim of what can only be described as robust pawing by several deputies who decided that Jones and his followers needed to be herded in a different direction.
Jones could hardly believe that the forces of tyranny had exposed their true agenda in such a naked show of aggression.
And while pro-government patsies like Mediaite and Wonkette poked fun at Jones, implying that being pushed by cops (who didn’t end up arresting anyone) didn’t exactly put the march on a par with Selma, Jones and his fans were clearly shocked by the misuse of force, and let the deputies hear about it.
In this video, skip to the 5-minute mark to hear Jones give this fiery speech to some officers, who frankly look a little bewildered: “This is unbelievable! These cops want to physically attack us. They hate Americans. They hate anybody who doesn’t work for their criminal mafia government. They absolutely think they’re tough…When the revolution comes, man, you’re in deep crap.”
Whew. What a day for liberty.
Anyway, here’s the surprising coda to that remarkable day: One of the freedom fighters among Jones’s admirers turned out to be a very surprising figure. It was Vivian Kubrick, daughter of the late great filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick, and Jones appeared to be absolutely starstruck that she showed up among his fans.
In this video posted yesterday, Jones and Kubrick engage in a gushing tribute to both her father’s films and the coming tyrannical apocalypse being unleashed by the Muslim pretender in the White House.
Not once in the 25-minute paranoiac lovefest between the two, however, is Vivian’s dedication to Scientology ever brought up, nor does either of them mention that her commitment to L. Ron Hubbard’s wacky church caused her to cut off all ties with her famous father in 1999, as he was editing his final film, Eyes Wide Shut. (He died that March, four months before the film opened in July.)
In fact, some knowledgeable folks have theorized that some of the pain that runs through Eyes Wide Shut was inspired by Kubrick’s feelings of loss after Vivian “disconnected” from her family in typical Scientology style.
Vivian reportedly showed up at her father’s funeral with a Scientology handler. Her separation from the family only deepened after that, and when her sister Anya died of cancer in 2009, Vivian didn’t show up at the funeral, even though she and her sister had been inseparable as children.
Vivian’s disconnection was keenly felt by her famous father, who had been treating her like a protege. She filmed a documentary about the making of her father’s horror classic, The Shining, while she was only 17, and composed the score for Full Metal Jacket at 24. But she turned down his offer to help with Eyes Wide Shut as she dedicated herself to Scientology.
“Stanley asked Vivian to compose the score, but at the last moment she said she wouldn’t,” Kubrick’s widow Christiane told the Guardian in 2009. “They had a huge fight. He was very unhappy. He wrote her a 40-page letter trying to win her back. He begged her endlessly to come home from California. I’m glad he didn’t live to see what happened.”
Is Alex Jones completely unaware of that history? That appears to be the case, as he tries repeatedly to drop in references to Stanley’s movies as he strokes Vivian during the video, egging on her anti-government spiel.
As for a Scientologist showing up among Jones’s followers, we’ve noticed that some Hubbardites tend to be susceptible to the wing-nut end of the political spectrum. But on the other hand, Scientology poster boy Tom Cruise generally gives to Democratic causes. Scientology itself doesn’t have an overt right or left lean, but if we had to generalize, we’d say most of its members congregate to the right side of the aisle.
Anyway, we’d love to hear more from Vivian about her political views, and we wonder what Jones thinks of Scientology. Perhaps after stuffing ourselves this holiday, we’ll get after it.
