When it comes to Alex Jones, the revolting, Sandy Hook-denying founder of InfoWars, nothing he says shocks me anymore. Considering the type of tragedy-exploiting detestable bastard he is, and the fact the current “president” thinks he has an “amazing” reputation, I’ve made it a point to fight back against allowing his brand of utter insanity to become “normal.” Just because the crazies are taking over the right-wing media doesn’t mean those of us who aren’t stupid enough to fall for the preposterous lies these scumbags are pushing should sit by and let them destroy this country.
Without a doubt, when it comes to pushing some of the most outrageous conspiracies you’ll find anywhere, the scumbag I often refer to as the “Human Walrus” fabricates total nonsense a person would have to be legitimately insane to believe.
Such as when Jones said that people have told him, personally, that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are demons who smell like sulfur. Keep in mind, he wasn’t talking figuratively, as in they’re just bad people, Jones meant that Obama and Clinton were literally demons.
If you doubt me, just take a look.
Well, in proving that there’s not a heartbreaking tragedy Jones won’t exploit to push his special brand of hate that’s made him a millionaire, on Tuesday the Human Walrus pushed the idea that the reason Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (a Democrat) didn’t evacuate the city was to make Donald Trump look bad.
“Is he just completely negligent, insane, or is Sylvester Turner conscious of what he’s doing and they’re wanting to blame Trump so they want to make the disaster as bad as possible?,” Jones asked.
“Is it complete ineptitude, or is it part of a plan?” he added.
But wait – what about the “weather weapon” he thought Obama was using on Oklahoma back in 2013? What happened to that “government plan”? Couldn’t that have been utilized by Trump this time around to cause Harvey to be even more destructive?
Apparently Jones isn’t aware that Trump’s spent the better part of the last few days exploiting the storm, and the devastation that’s followed, to distract Americans from his shameful pardoning of a racist, his ban on transgender Americans serving in the military, and to try to make himself look good — including bragging about the size of the crowd that gathered to see him upon his visit to Corpus Christi, Texas.
What Jones also failed to mention (because he’s a worthless pile of crap) is that the Houston City Council chose not to order an evacuation over concerns that there might be a repeat this year of what happened in 2005 when 107 people died due to evacuation-related incidents — more than from the actual storm, itself.
It was absolute chaos.
Travel times that were normally only a couple of hours turned into 24-36 hour commutes. People were running out of gas, cars were catching on fire, and several people died of heat exhaustion stuck in the congestion of it all.
When it came to this storm, it’s likely Houston officials looked at making the “better” of two bad decisions. They ultimately decided that fewer lives would be at risk if they didn’t evacuate the country’s fourth largest city than if they did.
The harsh reality is there really was no “right answer.” It came down to choosing what city leaders felt would minimize the risk to human life, then doing their best to handle the aftermath of one of the worst storms in history the best they could.
Yet leave it to a creature like Alex Jones to take an incredibly hard decision made by Houston’s mayor and turn it into some petty, partisan conspiracy where he put forth the idea that Democrats would put lives at risk — just to make Trump look bad.
To even think that’s possible is absolutely sick.
Alex Jones is a reprehensible and deplorable parasite who I hesitate to even call “human” and anyone who trusts such a vile parasite should be absolutely ashamed of themselves — but sadly they’re probably not.

You could watch Jones’s comments below, but why bother? There’s got to be something more creative, educational or fulfilling you could do with your time rather than listen to him blather on with his insanity.
