That's not exactly an endorsement of his claims.

Essentially, his defense in the custody proceedings is "I was only kidding about all that".

I'm quite happy to admit that I'm wrong, if that turns out to be the case. However, it still isn't clear from the article you link to whether it is just his character that is performance art, or the content. After all, he's not the only one on Infowars: there are plenty of other "reporters" broadcasting the same stories. As far as I know, none of them have admitted to being actors.

So it's possible that he DIDN'T have sex with at least 150 women and beat up numerous grown men by the age of 16? Who'd have thought?

For me, one of the most repulsive displays during the custody battle was seeing him call on the media to respect his family during the trial. While I agree that his kids should be off limits to the media, the hypocricy of appealing for his family's privacy after he's **** on the graves of all those kids who died at Sandy Hook made me want to vomit, preferably in HIS mouth.

Colbert has been having a lot of fun with Alex Jones lately. Imitating him, and playing his clips. Based on the clips, I totally believe he is playing a character, they're just too over the top.

Colbert imitating Alex Jones must be like Lindsey Graham imitating Freddie Mercury.

This just in: Alex Jones Voted For Obama!

Quote:
Former Infowars employees suggested that Jones’ secret fear was that his opposition would someday run out — especially if Obama lost re-election. One recalled Jones pacing back and forth on Election Day in 2012, nervous over the prospect of losing the polarizing president that had helped usher in ratings gold.

“He just kept saying, ‘Oh my God, if Obama loses, we're out of business,’” the employee said. “One of the guys in there asked, ‘You didn't vote for Obama, did you?’ And Alex said nothing. Just a grimace. I don't know what it meant.” A member of Jones’ staff during the 2012 election speculated that he would do anything for the sake of his show. “I personally think he voted for Obama to keep ratings going,” another former employee said. A third employee recalled Jones dropping hints that he was planning to cast his vote for Obama.

It's been admitted, people!

Interestingly, (and possibly to argue against my own, earlier point), it looks like he believes that voting does actually have an effect, and that the results are not pre-planned. I thought the Evil They controlled the elections, and that, despite the secrecy and the murderous efforts to preserve said secrecy, Jonesy had access to these secret scripts?

Alex Jones Retracts Chobani Claims to Resolve Lawsuit

Quote:
In a statement at the end of one of his broadcasts, Mr. Jones said: “During the week of April 10, 2017, certain statements were made on the InfoWars Twitter feed and YouTube channel regarding Chobani L.L.C. that I now understand to be wrong.
“The tweets and video have now been retracted and will not be reposted. On behalf of InfoWars, I regret that we mischaracterized Chobani, its employees and the people of Twin Falls, Idaho, the way we did.”
...
The reports — published on April 11 on InfoWars.com, Mr. Jones’s website, and on the Alex Jones Channel on YouTube — said the factory in Idaho, which employs refugees, was connected to the 2016 sexual assault of a child and a rise in tuberculosis cases. The reports were promoted on Twitter under the headline “Idaho Yogurt Maker Caught Importing Migrant Rapists” and were spread widely online.

Holy ****, that's twice in less than a year that he's backed off some CT BS. Has he finally hit the level of fame where he's no longer capable of saying whatever he wants, because he might actually attract enough attention to be held accountable?

Maybe he is seeing a once in a lifetime opportunity for him: "coming across as less loony than the sitting US president".

Although there is still a lot of pro Trump stuff on infowars,Jones himself has stopped the non stop worship of Trump. He is smart enough to see where this is going.

Oh this is great during the early 9/11 Thermite theories Jones was being supported by Russian and Iranian trolls.

Did Trump take a page out of Jones's playbook?

Jones has been on PUtin's payroll as a "correspondent" for Russia Today for some time.

2005-2008, Russian, Venezuelan, and Iranian Trolls, real people push Alex Jones and Steven E. Jones Thermite CD Bull on line.

2009-2015, thousands of People loose their Job as Bots take over and reduce cost of trolling for state actors Russa, Venezuela, and Iran.

2016 bots elect Trump president with fake News stories from Russian Propoganda site.

2017-2018 bots take over people terminated by brain sucking aliens, Donald Trump saves us all, no brain to suck aliens starve!

Please donate to the save a troll fund the unemployed Trolls need your help they have children to feed just like you do.

I need a cute gif, and a parody website now, every early debunker on the old Jerf 9/11 forum figured that out a long time ago I think.

Conspiracy theories are not just crazy people the are a Propoganda tool, used to divid Democracy, to weaken and disrupt it.

Good work Comrade Alex.

I was just wondering if Jones could have been behind the harrasment and physical attacks against me when I was seeking dust samples for Dr. Greening?

Jones has an encounter with an odd-looking fellow who pours some coffee on him. Denounces him as a literal goblin. Apparently that fellow is now owning it and making a thing of it.
The police have trolled Jones on twitter.
