Stupid people gonna stupid. What can you do really? If you choose to believe nonsense (or even at some point stop and think about how DRINKING FUCKING BLEACH could be bad), with all the information that's available today, you're beyond help. People are only becoming more and more intellectually lazy, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Quote:
BRIDGEPORT - Conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones sent child pornography to the lawyers for the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy, their lawyers said.

The law firm representing the families of the 2012 mass shooting, stated in court documents filed Monday they have contacted the FBI after discovering child porn in electronic files Jones recently turned over to the Sandy Hook families as a result of their lawsuit against him for calling the tragedy a hoax.

Jones publicly responded on a broadcast of his show that he is being framed by Chris Mattei, the lawyer for the Sandy Hook families and went on making what Mattei and his law firm, Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder claim are threats against them.

“You’re trying to set me up with child porn, I’ll get your ass,” Jones states on the broadcast. “One million dollars, you little gang members. One million dollars to put your head on a pike.” Jones then pounds a photograph of Mattei and goes into a rant at one point stating, “I’m gonna kill…”

Court documents stated that the Sandy Hook lawyers had begun reviewing the electronic files that Jones had turned over when they found child pornography in the files. They immediately contacted the FBI.

“The FBI advised counsel that its review located numerous additional illegal images, which had apparently been sent to InfoWars email addresses,” they stated.

There was story about this over the weekend where Jones claimed the FBI told him he'd been set up. Though I don't know why anyone would believe him at this point.

At what point in Alex Jones’ life would we say skepticism became the most reasonable reaction to all claims involving the words “FBI” and “set up?”

There's a really good episode of This American Life on Jones, which suggests that the point at which his claims should be viewed with suspicion happened...quite a while ago.

I wonder if we’ll get our first presidential pardon for child pornography out of this

Anyway, it's an interesting listen. First half is about one of the Sandy Hook dads who used to be an Alex Jones fan but now fashions himself as like, slayer of trolls. Second half is much better and is a deep-dive into Jones' origin story where he was a bully who got jumped in high school.

I agree that it's very enlightening as to how we have the Alex Jones we all know and love today.

Spoiler: show
He's always been a mentally disturbed asshole.

one of the comments was brilliant:

I have created a GoFundMe to help with Alex’s legal costs. We will gladly accept and payment in the form of either thoughts or prayers to help Alex through these troubling times.

5G fear seems like the latest woo to infest our nation.

It's been all over my FB and IG feeds.

I fucking hate these people.
