Burr is known for being cynical, but until now we had no idea how well-read he was on political conspiracy theories. He may not dedicate a lot of his live shows to talking politics, but that doesn’t mean he has no opinions on the subject. He came out recently on Conan O’Brien ranting about Hillary Clinton attending Bilderberg meetings where she probably “hook up with a guy with a goat head.” In earliers interviews and on his own podcasts, Bill Burr declares himself to be a great fan of Conspiracy videos on Youtube, and information on Wikipedia. In a 10 minute video from 2009 where he is interviewed by Jason Bermas (film maker and ex Infowars.com journalist) he tells us that he meet with John Perkins, author of the Confessions of a Economic Hitman, he watched Aaron Russo’s From Freedom to Fascism and confesses that he even started to watch Alex Jones’ Obama Deception too. At one point he says “After a while I had to tap out. You know. Cause it’s so depressing.” “You know, I would just be waking up in the middle of the night going ‘alright what if I ran up into the mountains and I learned how to start a fire without a match.”
While being interviewed by CNN, Bill Burr freely opined on why he likes Ron Paul, why being cynical is not a bad thing, how he was tempted to buy a gun to fortify his one-bedroom apartment and why we’re all doomed. He makes a lot of sense.
