Good.

Good for them.

He'll just say that he was only joking.  That's their strategy now.  That's always their strategy when they run into adult repercussions.

Much like when idiots "joke" about a bomb at the airport or a fire in a movie theater, the penalties aren't usually any less sincere.

"Alex Jones, we sentence you to 10 years in prison."

"That's unfair!"

"Just joking. Make it 15."
 
2019-02-14 08:33:01 AM  
Good.  For this and for many other things he's said/advocated for, he deserves to be stripped of every shred of human dignity.

It's just satire! It's entertainment!

Then next week to his viewers/listeners, they made me say those things, this is all real.

I love conspiracy theories.  I love theater.  But there are lines you don't cross. He is an evil person for pushing this especially long after his followers sent death threats to parents of those kids.

There is not punishment enough for his role in that.

Here's hoping Alex Jones is left without a dime to his lousy name. He's a lowlife piece of garbage.

If I remember correctly, his "joking" led to some verifiable harassment to the parents from his cult followers, so I'm thinking the joking angle ain't gonna slide.  Same as when his wife took him to the cleaners in their divorce even though he said his show was an act.
 
2019-02-14 08:34:21 AM  
But where will I find racist, conspiracy theory laden infomercials if his channel shuts down?
 
2019-02-14 08:34:21 AM  
I hope those people end up owning Alex Jones' farking house.
 
2019-02-14 08:34:26 AM  
My daughter was young when Sandy Hook happened.  It broke my heart thinking of what the parents and kids went through.  One anniversary years later I read the Wiki page and still teared up.

Alex Jones can go fark himself, and so can anyone who peddled this BS.

It's just a hop to the left then a sashay to the right?
 
2019-02-14 08:35:15 AM  
People who believe Sandy Hook was a false flag aren't going to believe Alex Jones if he suddenly starts being honest. Instead, they will ignore his recorded statements. If that's not allowed, then they will rationalize those statements as caused by his being under duress and held captive by "the man". Of course people say whatever needs said to get out of a jam; Jones was trying to protect InfoWars, so it's reasonable that he would lie under deposition. He's playing you fools.

// Our country's inhabitants are broken
/// Sorry, kids. Do better than we have.

Sounds like it. He's dropping any pretense that he actually believed what he said. Sounds like they're going with the "stoopid libs can't take a joke" defense.

Which means, by definition, he's claiming no sane and reasonable person could believe he was actually serious.  He may have a point.  Though I do wonder, if he still has listeners, how they would feel about that.

Totally unfair, right-wingers are never supposed to have to prove their claims. Otherwise "trickle down" would have been dead decades ago.
 
2019-02-14 08:39:15 AM  
This is beautiful. But i wonder how long it will take my dad to pull the infowars bumper stickers off his truck.

He's a huge believer in the new world order crap, but even he stopped short of going along with the crisis actors story.

I keep wanting to believe there's still some shame left in the man, but again and again he proves me wrong.

And in true form, there's probably audio of him saying "I'm serious, man - false flags and crisis actors all the way down!"

But he'll still claim it was a joke, and that the First Amendment protects his right to incite his followers to violence against private citizens.

// I actually do wonder if there'll be a judgement as to whether the parents are private citizens or not
// they didn't ask for fame or notoriety, but once they went on TV and became moderately known (enough that the sack of moldy wheezing assholes that is Alex Jones would know of them), isn't there a higher "actual malice" standard to meet before the courts make him pay up?

My niece barely escaped a bullet at Sandy Hook. I want very bad things to happen to him. It will make no effective difference. Other creeps will push forward to take his place, and the sub-90 IQ crowd will eagerly slurp up whatever they squirt out. The stupidity of the human race will remain rock-steady.

Getting his ass handed to him in court is Ezra Levants only talent.
 
2019-02-14 08:43:59 AM  
Wow. Can you sue the pope when a christian does something bad? Why does Jones get sued for something someone else did? If some nut harassed these people, go after the guy who did the harassing. Jones is an asshole, but he shouldn't be blamed for things other people have done. If he specifically called for people to harass these people, then maybe you could say he caused it, but just having delusional rants should not be enough to claim that.

no, he deserves to be publicly executed.

Looks like he's trying the "I believe it happened, I simply entertained the discussion in accordance with my 1A rights" tactic.

Hope it goes poorly for him.

I am of the opinion that he doesn't believe any of what he says and is really just a showman, feeding the crazy what they want to hear and profiting from it.

Mind you, It doesn't make him any less of a shiathead in my eyes.

Yep, they, the sacred few, are entrusted with the Truth!  Anything is completely acceptable in order to overcome the deluded non-believers, lies, violence, theft, removal of rights, etc..  Also, those Muslims are totally untrustworthy, they're allowed to lie to spread the religion, don't believe a word they say!  They just want Sharia law, not the constitution and our laws!

That's not what he is claiming now:

He has cited First Amendment rights and says he believes the shooting happened.

Here in the US, slander/libel is a VERY high bar to clear in court.

Despite all the tremendous damage done, I think the "nutjob is gonna nutjob" defense will likely work.
 
2019-02-14 08:48:04 AM  
Jones has defended the discussions on his show. He has cited First Amendment rights and says he believes the shooting happened.

I don't think "I knew I was lying" is going to help his case as much as he seems to think it will.
