Errm, that looks like Alex Jones doing what he does best, spouting every kind of crack pot conspiracy theory he can lay his hands on in an effort to boost readership and/or DVD sales numbers , etc.

I don't think anyone takes anything he says at all seriously, at least not on purpose.

That said, that sculpture does look kind of freaky, many would be hard pressed to come up with something positive to say about it.
