In an ideal world, I’d never have to write an article about InfoWars founder, con artist, lowlife, and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Possibly one of the most detestable human beings I’ve ever seen, Jones has made himself a fairly rich man by pushing some of the most outrageous and disgusting conspiracies you’ll find anywhere. A scumbag who claimed Sandy Hook was a hoax, Jones has proven time and time again that there’s no level to which he will not stoop to push his insane brand of hate, fear, and paranoia.
On Friday, Jones further proved what a revolting human being he is by not only claiming he has “proof” Michelle Obama has a penis, but that she also might have murdered Joan Rivers.
Here’s part of Jones’ outrageous rant, as transcribed by Media Matters:
This is video shot by one of their fans where [Michelle Obama] looks like she’s either got a rubber snake in her pants or she is — could be a major porn star in Hollywood. And I’m not putting trannies down. So here’s the deal. Joan Rivers said this and died, and none of the media will even cover that she had dinner with the Obamas. She was friends with them, and she was all for it, saying it’s great that Obama’s gay and that he’s got a tranny wife. And it’s a big joke on America. And then she died, but they don’t ever show in the reports that I’m saying Joan Rivers said it. I was never sure. It was kind of a joke to me. I never created it. But now, there’s footage they’re trying to pull off the internet where, I guess, she didn’t tuck it between her legs or whatever, like right out of The Silence of the Lambs.
Look, see it for yourself. Here’s the footage. It’s going to go to number one on YouTube. If they try to take it down, you know it’s the end of free speech, because I’m covering what people are already covering, and here comes Michelle Obama walking like a man, looking like a linebacker, way bigger than Obama, big hands, big head, and man, I guess she’s a devil then. Maybe it’s a forked tail that’s six inches long. That’s it. Michelle Obama is a devil. I’ve already made that joke about Obama, but maybe it isn’t, maybe it’s a little forked tail. You decide, what is this hanging between her legs jiggling and flopping around? Here it is. She’s adjusting it. I mean I’ve seen men my whole life, myself, adjust their packages.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to say to that — it’s utter insanity. It would be a complete waste of time to break down what he said, because those words are nothing more than the rantings of a sick person who desperately needs help, and lots of it.
It’s terrifying to think about the reality that millions of people actually view Jones as a credible source of information. This is someone who’s built a net worth of roughly $10 million by pushing unhinged conspiracy theories and scamming people into buying his ridiculous (and overpriced) products such as “Super Male Vitality” for $69.95 or “Biome Defense 50” for $99.95.
He’s a con artist.
Sadly, this is not the first time Jones has accused Michelle Obama of being a man, nor is this even close to the most insane thing he’s ever said. Just before last year’s election, Jones accused Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton of literally being demons:
I’m never a lesser of two evils person, but with Hillary, there’s not even the same universe. She is an abject, psychopathic, demon from Hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet. I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out. Folks let me just tell you something, and if media wants to go with this, that’s fine. There are dozens of videos and photos of Obama having flies land on him, indoors, at all times of year, and he’ll be next to a hundred people and no one has flies on them. Hillary, reportedly, I mean, I was told by people around her that they think she’s demon-possessed, okay? I’m just going to go ahead and say it, okay?
They said that they’re scared. That’s why when I see her when kids are by her, I actually get scared myself, with a child — with that big rubber face and that — I mean this woman is dangerous, ladies and gentleman. I’m telling you, she is a demon. This is Biblical. She’s going to launch a nuclear war. The Russians are scared of her.
Imagine how bad she smells, man? I’m told her and Obama, just stink, stink, stink, stink. You can’t wash that evil off, man. Told there’s a rotten smell around Hillary. I’m not kidding, people say, they say — folks, I’ve been told this by high up folks. They say listen, Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur. I never said this because the media will go crazy with it, but I’ve talked to people that are in protective details, they’re scared of her. And they say listen, she’s a frickin’ demon and she stinks and so does Obama. I go, like what? Sulfur. They smell like Hell.
Keep in mind, Jones is someone whom Donald Trump has praised for having an “amazing” reputation, and InfoWars is a site the “president’s” sons have used as a “credible” source of information.
Not all that long ago people like Jones were outcasts, shunned to the far edges of society, mocked (and rightfully so) for being crazy.
That’s no longer the case.
As conservatives continue to shift further and further to the right, alt-right conspiracy sites like InfoWars, Breitbart, and WND.com have become “mainstream” sources of information for millions of Republican voters.
It really is a dark time in this country when someone like Alex Jones can accuse the former First Lady of not only being a man, but of possibly murdering someone, and it’s really not even considered a big deal that these words came from a person who the current “president” has praised for having an “amazing reputation.”
