I bet he's not the real father. FALSE FLAG!

5 or 6 years ago, Glenn Beck admitted in an interview it was an act, all about business.
Besides Rush, do any of the  right wing media talking heads believe what they say?

I'm sure his listeners will be perfectly happy with this revelation.

/ actually not sarcastic, i'm sure there'll take it as "oh, he's just lying to the court, not to us" without stopping to think about what that implies

Yeah, no.  They don't get to spread stupidity and hate and then come back and say "that's all an act, baby".

Stephen Colbert was an act.  He explicitly designed his show to be a parody of the right wing media (which made the fact that some in the right wing did take it seriously all the more ludicrous).

Of course it's an act

They may not, but their fans most definitely do.

His attorney is claiming it is just an act, or could just be an act.  That is not to say it is an act, because Alex Jones could be that stupid.
 
2017-04-17 08:26:55 AM  
Any chance his kids are named: Peace, Love and Forgiveness?
 
2017-04-17 08:27:09 AM  
It doesn't matter if he's sincere or just playing a character. It doesn't matter if he believes or is just faking. The effect he has on society is exactly the same either way.
 
2017-04-17 08:28:49 AM  
Of course he said that.  That's exactly the kind of thing he'd have to say given the circumstances and the Zionist conspiracy to take over the world...
 
2017-04-17 08:29:38 AM  
He should still lose custody even if he only cosplays as a mass murderer

It still blows my mind that they let let him roast, nay, skewer, Dubya the way he did at the WH correspondents dinner.

But bless their tiny, knotted hearts that they did. Wonder what they expected.
 
2017-04-17 08:30:37 AM  
This nut case is going to endanger those children. One of these days he'll upset the wrong person and that lunatic is going to come a looking for him wither it's a pissed off liberal or a pissed off conservative who didn't like how he spun his latest shtick. That whole type of shtick wither its with the right wing or left wing should never be on the air in the first place but here we are today.

Meanwhile they buy the placebo pills he hocks and don't even think about it.

Says a lot, really, about America's drunken fascination with capitalism.

I see another farker  has already posted the Bill Hicks thing.

Mr Hicks: Your Honor, the man "Alex Jones" is just an act, a character I created in high school. He was my old D&D character.... I gave him a plain name because I rolled all natural threes with a constitution of 8.

Judge:So why did you let this charade go on for so long? You have your own children calling you 'Alex Jones'.

Hicks: C'mon your honor... Have you seen the people who listen to my show? Show me a guy that can keep from fleecing those assholes straight to a pauper's grave, and I'll show you the second coming of Jesus Christ.

You can lose custody of a tirade?

Wow, for the party of "family values," conservative pundits sure have a tough time keeping a marriage.

Yes, it then becomes classified as a non-domiciled diatribe.

I bet losing custody of his tirade is the high point of Alex's show.  That's when he's foaming at the mouth screaming into the microphone.

If you tuned in to that show and didn't "get it" right off, then you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

I doubt Rush believes what he says either, but if he does it's only because after spewing his vitriol for so song he started to live in his own reality.

The reason I question it because I seem to remember that after the Sandra Fluke backlash, Rush's ratings dropped.  Next thing you know, he's shilling for Putin.

I think if we live through this period of uncertainty, we're going to find out that people like Limbaugh and Jones were tools for Russian propaganda.  They don't care what damage they've done to their own country.  The only thing that matters to them is money.

Hannity is the only RWNJ who I think believes his own bullshiat.

Ann Coulter has never been out of character.  I don't care what she actually believes, she is an asshole 24/7.  People used to say (some of them here) that she was an actor, like Stephen Colbert, but Stephen Colbert had a body of pre-Colbert Report work and would give interviews out of character.  Also, he's funny.

If bigotry was really a deciding factor in child custody, Fark would corner the disenfranchised parent market.
