    With all the politically and profit motivated fake victim reports these days I like to see real proof, and their word is not proof.

    I never heard of Alex Jones until years after Sandyhook. I do remember watching the news in the days after the shooting and being grossed out at how some of the parents were actually using the deaths of their own children for political ideology advancement. They defiantly seemed like the types to make allegations up.
    Yeah blame the parents...Way too think it thru....Never heard of Jones???...Yet you rush to defend him...

    I think you're wrong on this one Mr. Saladin. I believe nota bene is trying to say that his mental illness may be the primary factor behind his statements. I don't she's absolving him of being a liar, as there are instances where one can say he has lied. However, mental illness may make the statements he makes exponentially worse than whatever lies you think he has said.

    Of course, that statement isn't based on any existing diagnosis of Jones' mental health. It also ignores the planning involved in his shows, as he has to research this information, and then come up with whatever he feels is an appropriate theory for the 'facts' he uses to make up his arguments. 'Facts' which his followers then read up on, and repost all over the web - even here on our very own Debate Politics.

    Repostings which usually come with easily searchable links which they not only agree with, but that they also want others to believe in. Hell, if you typed up 'infowars' on the search function you'd find a lot of conservatives nota often agrees with. You might even find me making fun of the guy and his supporters cause they want to pick and choose when that broken clock is right.

    So what is my conclusion? It's that you're wrong. This should be about the insulting way he has treated those parents. There is simply no other person on television who meets the level of craziness Alex Jones sells, and many people on both sides - but mostly the right - think possitively of the guy. There are idiots on the left who probably agree with his views on vaccines, but overall the man is a product of right wing myths and nuttiness.

    I disagree.....Jones knows "exactly" what he is doing...He is in to make money....He is a deranged scum bag but not somebody to be pitied...By any means....The Parents know this and so do their lawyers

    Oh I don't doubt that he is a scumbag, Mr. Saladin...

    But scumbags can have mental health issues. I think that's the salient point here. I agree, he should be taken to court for outright repeating a statement he couldn't possibly think isn't made up - but that doesn't mean he can't have bipolar disorder.

    Mental health is of course irrelevant here as he has demonstrated an ability to literally give sermons full declarations of telling the truth but really repeating a series of absolute lies whenever countered on by the people involved. He can tell right from wrong. It's his whole shtick.

    I think it's far more important to look at just who listens to a man we all accept to be crazy.

    Families of Sandy Hook shooting victims win legal victory in lawsuit against InfoWars, Alex Jones

    Six families of victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School won a legal victory Friday in their fight against controversial radio and internet personality Alex Jones.

    A judge in Connecticut has granted the families’ discovery requests, allowing them access to, among other things, InfoWars’ internal marketing and financial documents. The judge has scheduled a hearing next week to decide whether to allow the plaintiffs’ attorneys to depose Jones.
    Good. I hope they take him to the cleaners. What a piece of **** he is.

    His lawyers have had to admit in his custody battle he only does a character and if you analyze all of what he says and does, it has quite a bit to do with steering people towards his online store.

    “the frickin frogs gay” thing actually segwayed into water filters.

    He’s not a liar or disturbed necessarily, he just found an audience of gullible idiots to sell stuff to using some of the most extreme methods of marketing ever devised.
