Alexander Emerick “Alex” Jones (born February 11, 1974, age 48) is an American paleoconservative/libertarian radio host, documentary filmmaker, video blogger and podcaster. His show, The Alex Jones Show, is a part of his larger projects, Infowars and Prison Planet, which usually deal with governmental Nanny state failures, the existence of a coming police state, constitutionalism and government conspiracies. He is outspokenly pro-life and has gone to many anti-Planned Parenthood protests.
He has also appeared several times as a guest on Coast to Coast AM.
On August 6, 2018, Jones was "unpersoned" when the monopoly controlled tech companies colluded to delete all of his content and ban him from their platforms. Commentator Mark Dice referred to it as "the digital equivalent of book burning." The move was widely interpreted by First Amendment activists as a threat by liberal censors against the free exchange of ideas among conservatives.
Jones is a strong advocate of the Second Amendment and vigorously opposes all forms of gun control. He was a supporter of Ron Paul's presidential campaign and has also been an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, despite criticizing his decision to launch missiles at a Syrian government airfield. He has also said he does not believe in evolution, rather, that humans are an "engineered" species.
Megyn Kelly attempted to deface Jones in a heavily edited interview with her NBC show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, but this backfired, putting Kelly's career in jeopardy as a result. According to Jones, Kelly lied to Alex about what the interview would be about; figuring that Kelly and NBC would turn the interview into a selectively-edited hit piece, Jones made sure to record the entire interview himself so he would have proof of Kelly's and NBC's duplicity.
Jones is widely known as a conspiracy theorist. He has made many documentary films shedding light on the government's corrupt and Satanic behavior, as well as their attempts to infringe on civil rights.
He claimed the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, calling it synthetic, completely fake with actors, and manufactured, during a 2014 broadcast. Jones also produced two videos claiming the shooting was a false flag and a "fraud" and hosted articles about it on Infowars. This resulted in Jones' banning from Facebook and YouTube. Families of the victims have been allegedly subjected to online abuse and death threats from followers of Jones as a result. In response, the town committee stated that they were considering a written appeal to President Trump, asking him to speak out against the conspiracy theorists. Because of the alleged threats and harassment, the families of the massacre filed suit against Jones in 2018. On November 15, 2021, a Connecticut Judge ruled that Jones was guilty by default after he refused to hand over evidence ordered by the courts. Jones later retracted many of his claims when questioned by one family's lawyer, stating that he does believe it happened, while still maintaining his questioning of the official narrative.
He is a 9/11 truther, believing that 9/11 was pulled off by traitors of the U.S. Government (New World Order members) and various other politicians, as well as high-ranking military officials from several other countries. Jones believes that there was something more than the planes crashing into the buildings that led to the Twin Towers eventually being destroyed. He also believes that Osama bin Laden was killed ten years before his official death in 2011.
Jones has declared himself a supporter of Israel, but has also been accused of making statements some deem antisemitic. During the 2017 Antifa/alt-right riots in Charlottesville, he claimed there were Jews posing as Ku Klux Klan followers in the rally:
|“||I mean, quite frankly, I've been to these events, a lot of the KKK guys with their hats off look like they’re from the cast of Seinfeld.||”|
In the same year, he also accused "the Jewish mafia" of supporting efforts to "derail the Trump presidency".
|“||[Pedophilia] also includes murdering [children] so that they can have their bone marrow harvested, as well as body parts. ... We actually believe there is a colony on Mars, that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space ... to be slaves on the Mars colony.||”|
Jones neither agreed nor disagreed with his claims, but he pointed out the quantity of mechanical wreckage on Mars, said to have come from deactivated space probes. He then said,
|“||Well, I don't know about Mars bases, but I know that [NASA have] created massive, thousands of different types of chimeras, that are alien life forms on this Earth.||”|
In response, NASA issued a statement saying that "There are no humans on Mars".
Malkin DNC Incident
On August 26, 2008, at the DNC Convention in Denver, Jones and dozens of his followers surrounded conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, and aggressively mobbed her. Jones accused her of being a part of the New World Order and wanting to "put Americans in death camps" due to her 2004 book In Defense of Internment: The Case for 'Racial Profiling' in World War II and the War on Terror. As she attempted to get to a position of safety, Jones was heard shouting "Get Michelle Malkin! Don't let her leave!" "Where is that monster!?!" She was repeatedly chased by the mob, and Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit noted that death threats were issued at her during the course of these events Malkin subsequently referred to Jones' mob as "opportunists" and said that "people like Alex Jones, of course, are not at all interested in good faith intellectual debates".
Malkin seems to have forgiven Jones since, defending him on Twitter after his censorship, along with Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, and Gavin McInnes. Jones and Malkin both ally themselves closely with Nicholas J. Fuentes.
