FTFY - he doesn’t care who gives him money, so he followed the money and as we have discussed here many times over the years the big money is all on the extreme right (or in the USA just the right).

I don't know about that, I still see plenty of lunacy on the left.

Looks as if Alex Jones might be in deep doo doo over the Jan 6th insurrection:

As much as I deeply despise AJ, based strictly on what was reported in that article, I don't see any criminality on his part.

Prison guards at Auschwitz who didn't hit or kill anyone were still considered criminals.

people from Jones's crew reported from inside the Capitol.
Since Jan 6, Jones has done nothing on his show but claiming that he did nothing wrong.

I think there are plenty of things he can be charged with.

I wasn't aware he had people reporting for him from inside the capitol, and there may well be other facts that come to light. I'd like nothing more than to see him be a guest at a federal prison. Well, maybe I'd like him to have a roommate with initials DJT even more. After all, an orange jumpsuit would match nicely with the latter's skin tone.
