Celente pinned the focus back where it belongs, on the “inept” government.
On Monday, Jones went into rant mode while debating gun control on Piers Morgan Tonight. He appeared on the show to explain a petition he started to have Morgan deported from the country. The petition, which received more than 105,000 signatures, took aim at Morgan's support for more gun control in America.
The establishment media, a frequent whipping post for Jones, couldn’t wait to dissect his conduct. A day after the debate, guests on Piers Morgan's show snickered and scoffed as they threatened Jones’ family – including his small children - and then called for Jones to be shot with an assault rifle.
And that was civil?
“These people are on TV knowing that there’s nuts out there,” Jones said, adding that anyone else making similar statements would be immediately arrested.
Celente, an author and the publisher of The Trends Journal, said Jones’ stance on gun control is correct.
“I am 100 percent behind Alex Jones and his stand against the government imposing any more legislation, rules or regulations to take our guns away from us,” said Celente during Jones' broadcast Thursday. “I am totally opposed to what they are doing and I totally support your belief and what you are doing to protect our rights.”
Politicians are doing nothing more than using the gun control issue for political capital, he said.
The nation’s politicians are “a bunch of inepts and incompetents that have failed at everything they do,” said Celente. “Now all of the sudden the fiscal cliff is out of the news and the official jerks who have been officially incapable of doing anything to solve the major problems are now grabbing on this gun control issue."
Attempting to confiscate guns would be as ineffective as prohibition or the ‘war on drugs’ and would only serve to put the nation further in debt and take away more rights from citizens, he said.
“They are the D.C. gang, the greatest rapists of human rights in the history of the United States,” said Celente. “They love to rape us.”
In the middle of the interview, breaking news came in about the shooting at Taft Union High School in Taft, Calif. which is southwest of Bakersfield. According to the Los Angeles Times, a 16-year-old boy is in critical but stable condition. A teacher is credited with preventing more injuries by "talking down" the shooter, a 16-year-old student.
The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14 was the catalyst for renewed talks about gun control.
“It’s time to arm these schools now,” said Jones.
Celente blamed the shooting on a “culture of cruelty,” and a population whose judgment is blurred by excessive use of psychotropic drugs.
“No one is talking about the psychotropic drugs,” said Celente. “This is not a gun control issue. This is a mind control issue.”
