Alex Jones’ news site covers Jack Swagger racist character

by Paul Joseph Watson @

World Wrestling Entertainment has jumped on the bandwagon of demonizing Tea Party Americans as racists by creating a xenophobic character who espouses anti-immigrant rhetoric, as WWE commentators quip that he receives “fan mail” from Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

Jack Swagger and his manager Zeb Colter appeared on Monday Night Raw last night and were booed by the audience as they talked about the constitution, the bill of rights and illegal immigration while standing in front of a ‘don’t tread on me’ flag.

The WWE is playing the race card for the purpose of a gimmick as Swagger prepares to fight Mexican wrestler Alberto Del Rio for the world heavyweight title at Wrestlemania.

During Swagger’s match, commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler joked that Swagger and Colter had received “fan mail” from conservative radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Alex Jones.

Twitter users reacted with outrage, slamming the WWE for “crapping all over the Tea Party” by “promoting a Racist, immigrant hating Tea Party character vs a Mexican wrestler.”

“What the fuck are you doing with this Zeb Colter guy? A heel with a Tea Party stereotype angle? Do you still want my money?” asked Mark Scudder.

This is part of the divide and conquer tactic of cultural subversion to manufacture racial division and to characterize the Tea Party, conservatives, libertarians, opponents of uncontrolled illegal immigration and constitutionalists as racist, extremist radicals who should be pushed to the fringes of the political discourse.

Now the demonization runs so deep that it’s even being bolstered by WWE wrestling.

The fact that WWE is owned by Vince and Linda McMahon, who are part of the Republican establishment, also tells us a lot about how grass roots conservatives and libertarians are viewed by those near the top of the power structure.

Why are we getting so wound up about a wrestling gimmick? WWE programming reaches 14 million Americans every week – and millions more worldwide. To put it in context – that’s more than 10 times the amount of viewers who watch America’s top rated news show, The O’Reilly Factor.

This follows the relentless campaign on behalf of the federal government, via the MIAC report, via the Department of Homeland Security and others to portray Americans who oppose big government as domestic extremists and even terrorists.

    Stupid sensitive idiots on twitter.

    Well other then the fact that this is the same gimmick that Dutch errr Zeb had back in the 90s predating the Tea Party thing…..

  3. Shane says:

    Alex Jones is a complete moron.

  4. dave says:

    I read the article but all I heard was “wah wah wah”

    Use your convictions, ideals and unity to feel strong, don’t seek strength through fear or approval of others.

    And the bottom line is a character on WWE TV isn’t going to hinder, or help, the Tea Party at all. Just an easy chance at some attention by condemning it publicly.

  6. Joey says:

    Life imitating art imitating life twitter

  8. Had they been slamming the other side, somebody would have been pissed too. This is the point! He is a bad guy, a heel. Swagger/Zeb are doing their job regardless of what idiots on the internet may think.

  9. Kerry says:

    I actually LIKE what Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger are doing.

  10. -J- says:

    and THIS is the reaction wwe was hoping for…mission accomplished.

  11. jj fact says:

    I liked the cold war era better. It made more sense and produced better heels. None of these pretty boys are truly heels they are just dbags.

  12. Ostego says:

    So typical of a TeaBagger. They fight their rear ends off to protect their 1st amendment rights, but as soon as someone says something about them, they are okay with taking someone else’s away.

  13. david says:

    Crazy how much heat Swagger is getting already and everything they say is true. It’s just a little over the top.

  14. T says:

    Too easy when you go after the low hanging fruit.
