ABC's The View Inexplicably Hosts Fringe Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones

Blog ››› ››› TODD GREGORY

On his radio show last year, Alex Jones said this: "I have the government documents where they said they're going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so that people don't have children." He is probably the country's most prominent 9-11 Truther.

Today, The View gave this man a platform to promote his lunatic conspiracy theories on network television.

I understand that Jones' show happens to be the place where Charlie Sheen had a meltdown that resulted in the suspension of his sitcom, but it's simply inexcusable to allow Jones to spread his message.

As much as the View hosts tried to concentrate on the Sheen incident, Jones still managed to turn the conversation in a conspiratorial direction, with a mention of his conspiracy theory site InfoWars.com. "Charlie's tired of being held up like the devil," he said. "They got the TSA putting their hands down people's pants. InfoWars.com covers it all. We've got the banks bankrupting the U.S." Whoopi Goldberg responded by steering the discussion back to Sheen: "Wait, wait, wait. We're sticking with Charlie, because that's way too much for me."

At the end of his appearance, Jones again plugged his site: "Charlie, stay clean. We love you. And everybody else out there, stay clean. Don't use drugs. InfoWars.com. InfoWars.com."

There is no mistaking what Jones is doing here. He said on his radio show on Friday that "we'll be able to inject InfoWars.com into the discussion when I'm on those broadcasts, and the people will come here and find the larger picture. It's kind of the red pill."

The "larger picture" he's talking about includes the shocking truths that the government can control hurricanes and that "globalists" were involved in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.

Media outlets: Stop hosting Alex Jones. There is no way to justify allowing him to promote this garbage.

For instance:

  • Jones' main theory is that a "New World Order" of secretive, powerful elites are working behind the scenes to rule the world through an authoritarian government. Jones thinks the New World Order will exterminate 80 percent of the world's population.
  • Jones is perhaps the country's most prominent 9-11 truther and regularly states his position that the government was behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
  • Jones believes the government has set up a series of secret FEMA-run concentration camps.
