For years, bombastic far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones ranted to his millions of followers that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax, that children weren’t killed and that parents were crisis actors in an elaborate ruse to force gun control.

Under oath and facing a jury that could hit him with $150 million US or more in damages for his false claims, Jones said Wednesday he now realizes that was irresponsible and believes that what happened in the deadliest school shooting in American history was “100 per cent real.”

Jones’ public contrition came on the final day of testimony in a two-week defamation lawsuit against him and his Austin-based media company Free Speech Systems brought by Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the parents of a 6-year-old Jesse Lewis. Their son was a first grader who was among the 20 students and six teachers killed at the school in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, 2012.

“I unintentionally took part in things that did hurt these people’s feelings,” said Jones, who also acknowledged raising conspiracy claims about other mass tragedies, from the Oklahoma City and Boston Marathon bombings to the mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, Fla. “And I’m sorry for that.”

Alex Jones can be funny, althgough mostly as a meme. I’ve seen his “these people are freakin’ demons,” bit parodied all over the place.

And who could forget “they’re turning the frogs gay,” and “we’re breaking the conditioniiiiiiiing.” I’ve never actually seen the originals. At least not until now.

It’d be unfair to say that Alex Jones was QAnon before QAnon was Israeli’d into existence, but he’s always been one of these infotainment performers who pretended to be doing political content. Imagine having a career that spans two decades and somehow not arriving at “yeah these Schlomo’s are a real problem folx.”

I felt bad for the guy when he got oven’d off of basically everywhere, but wake me up when he does lampshadocaust fact-checking. Then I’ll consider him the Free Speech Warrior that he claims to be.

The parents testified Tuesday about a decade of trauma, inflicted first by the murder of their son and what followed: gunshots fired at a home, online and telephone threats, and harassment on the street by strangers, all fuelled by Jones and his conspiracy theory spread to his followers via his website Infowars.

“It seems so incredible to me that we have to do this — that we have to implore you, to punish you — to get you to stop lying,” Lewis told Jones.

Courts in Texas and Connecticut have already found Jones liable for defamation for his portrayal of the Sandy Hook massacre as a hoax involving actors aimed at increasing gun control.

Pretty amazing how all Jones’ bluster evaporates once he’s shoved into a courtroom and no longer allowed to lie. Suddenly he starts whining about how sorry he is that he defamed the parents as crisis actors. 

And that’s the entirety of the Alex Jones Experience. He’s pretty much unwatchable, but you’ll occasionally see him doing a fun bit where he refers to these hook nosed beady eyed globalists with dual citizenship to Israel as Inter-dimensional Demons. Or maybe he’s talking about these hand rubbing curly black haired pornographers as Literal Goblin Potbelly Vampires. Maybe he’d still have twatter and YouTube accounts if it wasn’t for the Intergalactic SkinChangers That The Ancients Warned Us About But Which Are Definitely Not Jews.

At least he can take a joke, but I honestly never got the appeal.

  1. For some time now I’ve seen Alex Jones for what he really is – a distraction for white people seeking to actually fight back against the GloboHomo establishment. I really don’t feel any sympathy for him regarding the outcome of his lawsuit – if he plays things smart, it’ll be his lawyer who will end up being on the hook for any damages. Jones only lost the suit through a blatant act of malpractice by his legal team, and he’d be a retard to not pursue it.
