Here Are Some Things Donald Trump’s New BFF Alex Jones Believes
Yesterday, Donald Trump stopped by Alex Jones’ “Infowars” internet TV show to discuss his campaign, his weird and utterly made-up thing about Muslims in New Jersey cheering on 9/11, and how the country will be doomed if he is not elected president. The two then exchanged compliments, with Trump saying that Jones has an “amazing reputation.”
If you don’t know why this is straight up bonkers, then you probably don’t know who Alex Jones is –and for that, I would say you are lucky. See, Alex Jones is basically the king of tin-foil hat-wearing, super crazy conspiracy theorists.
In fact, following Trump’s appearance, when news broke about the horrifying mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, Jones was quick to suggest that it was a staged attack “geared to elicit widespread public outrage” An article on his website Infowars claims that “several days before the shooting there was an active shooter drill held in neighboring Victorville, California,” and, “the shooting occurred hours after House Republicans blocked debate on a bill to prevent people on the government’s no-fly list from exercising their Second Amendment right.”
Jones has long been arguably the most well-known promoter of all the usual conspiracy theorist claptrap on the internet. He believes 9/11 was an inside job, that the Illuminati are controlling everything, along with the Rothschilds, Satanists, and the Bilderburg Group. Oh, not to mention all that New World Order crap — which of course will be headed up by the Antichrist.
Here are some of the other fun things he believes!
1. The Government can make tornadoes and use them against us.
For serious, Alex Jones believes the government “can create and steer groups of tornadoes.” To what end? I have no idea, but he’s positive they can do it.
2. The Government is using “chemical warfare” to turn people gay.
“The reason there are so many gay people now is because it’s a chemical warfare operation. I have the government documents where they said they’re going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so people don’t have children.”
Apparently, they are doing this by putting “estrogen mimickers” in the plastic lining of juice boxes.
3. Gay people are kidnapping children to turn them gay.
In October of 2011, Jones explained that he believes that, like, gay people hold events and then steal everyone’s kids or something?
“It’s not that – I don’t even dislike gay people or hate them. It’s that I’ve been to these events and a lot of times it’s the specialized homosexuals who are collecting everybody’s kids that run them, so then it’s like they’re persecuting us and I’m tired of it.”
I don’t even know what this means. Jones also believes that lesbian judges are stealing children for the same purpose, and says that he’s seen “female judges with butch haircuts who usually have a whole string of kids they’ve taken from people themselves.”
4. Katy Perry has sold her soul to Satan.
Jones claims the pop star purposely Illuminati-ed the Superbowl with Illuminati triangles or something, because she is in cahoots with Lucifer.
5. The Government is trying to poison us with fluoride.
Hot tip: If you are ever talking to anyone who starts going on about fluoride, move away from them as quickly as possible. They tend to yell a lot and it’s uncomfortable.
6. Hunter S. Thompson was murdered because of “what he knew” about 9/11.
Apparently, Hunter S. Thompson was about to totally prove that 9/11 was an inside job, but then the government killed him and made it look like a suicide.
7. The shooting at a Charleston Church was a “false flag” to start a race war.
“Look at the priming, look at the preparations…. You can see all of the preparation building towards this, this is the big move, it’s a race war to bring in total chaos and then total federalization with this evil Justice Department, they even got rid of the other attorney general who had baggage, they put the new one in for the political persecutions of conservatives and Christians. They’re dropping the hammer.”
Also a false flag, according to Jones? The Boston Marathon bombings, the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary and in Aurora, Colorado, and pretty much everything else ever.
8. Whatever it is people believe about FEMA camps.
From what I gather, Alex Jones and his ilk think that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is, like, putting together concentration camps of some kind to put people in. Probably because they know too much about the Illuminati and the New World Order, or something.
So yeah, that’s Alex Jones — Trump’s buddy and a guy with an “amazing reputation.” Sure.
