  • Alex Jones Celebrates Trump Victory By Telling George Will: “Blow What Little Is Left Of Your Brains Out”

    Jones Appears To Have Deleted The Video From His YouTube Account

    Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI


    Radio host Alex Jones, a top Donald Trump ally and leading conspiracy theorist, celebrated Trump’s likely clinching of the Republican nomination by calling on Trump critic George Will to kill himself.

    Jones is a conspiracy theorist who believes the government was behind the 9/11 attacks and other national tragedies including the Oklahoma City bombing and shootings in Aurora, CO, and Newtown, CT. Trump and his campaign have been courting Alex Jones and his audience. Trump appeared on Jones’ December 2 program and told Jones: “Your reputation's amazing. I will not let you down." Jones claimed he has private conversations with Trump and that the Republican front-runner "listens to what we say." Jones has also teamed up with Trump ally Roger Stone, who is a frequent guest on Jones’ program and is working with Jones for pro-Trump protests at the Republican National Convention. 

    In a rambling YouTube video posted on the night of Trump’s victory in the Indiana Republican primary (h/t Right Wing Watch's Brian Tashman), Jones proclaimed that Trump “is a symbol of nationalism, a symbol of Americana, and a symbol of rebellion against tyranny. And everything the political whores, the presstitutes could do, blew up in their stinking, traitorous faces.” The video appears to have since been removed from Jones' official YouTube account.

    Jones attacked media outlets like Fox News and CNN, claiming they feature “hot blondes crossing and uncrossing their legs, sexually titillating the teleprompter,” and said they have tried to throw the kitchen sink at Trump. 

    He also attacked Washington Post (which is “openly run by the CIA, look it up”) columnist George Will for his criticisms of Trump, calling Will “Ted Bundy” with a “cute little haircut … classic serial killer look.” Jones continued by claiming Will is a “constitutional rapist. This man is literally mounting America, raping it in the ass, and telling us how great he is.” He then directed Will to “look in the mirror, realize you’re a traitor, and do the right thing, and put a .357 Magnum to your head, and blow what little is left of your brains out all over yourself, OK? You traitor, you Benedict Arnold, you piece of filth.” 

    Jones warned his audience that the establishment may still try to “steal the election” from Trump, and said he’s going to be at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland with Roger Stone “to make sure the popular vote in this country counts."

    Jones later said Trump had picked up “our story” about Sen. Ted Cruz’s father supposedly being linked to John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Jones said that observers had “major, major, major freak-outs” at Trump over the Cruz story.

    The conspiracy theorist also responded to Fox News host Greg Gutfeld’s assertion that Trump is pivoting into an "Alex Jones" presidency with his conspiracy theories. Jones claimed that he has a better reach than Fox News and other media outlets, and “my sponsorship’s exploding, my listenership’s exploding.”

    Jones concluded by literally applauding Trump supporters, telling them: “Congratulations to all the Trump supporters that saw through the hype. Congratulations to people who stood up to the Democrat and Republican system. Congratulations to everybody that understands how epic a time we’re living in. Whether Trump’s real or not doesn’t matter -- this is all a massive test of the will of the people. So I want to salute you, and understand we’re on the path to victory. … You are the resistance.”

    Donald Trump friend and ally Roger Stone is leading protests at July’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland to stop the alleged stealing of the nomination from Trump. Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones is a scheduled rally speaker and has frequently promoted the protests, urging his followers to give the Stone rally “their time, their energy, and their money.”

    On March 29, police charged Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, with simple battery after an incident in which police say he grabbed former Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields, leaving bruises on her arm. Soon after the news broke, several conservative media figures hustled to downplay the charge and dismiss its significance.

  • Right-Wing Media Baselessly Accuse MoveOn.Org Of Inciting Violence At Trump Rally

    Right-wing media figures are blaming MoveOn.org for violence that occurred following Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's canceled rally in Chicago on March 11, likening the group to the Ku Klux Klan and accusing them of "creating this havoc and ... putting innocent people's lives in jeopardy." In fact, several media figures have slammed Trump for condoning "violence in rally after rally," and at the Chicago event MoveOn.org only helped provide logistical support for the protests, including printing signs and recruiting attendees.

  • Trump Ally Roger Stone Claims MSNBC Has Also Banned Him

    Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

    Donald Trump ally Roger Stone, who was recently banned from CNN for making crude attacks on its staff, is claiming that MSNBC has also banned him from its airwaves.

    Stone is a notorious "dirty trickster" who recently co-authored The Clintons' War on Women. The 2015 book is dedicated to -- and cites research from -- a Holocaust denier who blames a "Jewish plot" for the 9/11 attacks. Stone's history includes forming an anti-Hillary Clinton group named "C.U.N.T." during the 2008 election.

    Stone worked for Trump's presidential campaign last year and is now organizing against Clinton's campaign again. He is a frequent presence in the media because of his long ties to Trump; their friendship and professional relationship goes back decades.  

    As Media Matters documented, Stone has written disgusting tweets targeting figures at media organizations including CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. He's called various media personalities an "arrogant know-it-all negro," a "stupid negro," a "fat negro," a "professional negro," a "Mandingo," "quota hires," "senile," and "the muff-diver."  

    CNN banned Stone from appearing on its airwaves as a result of his tweets. Stone is also a regular guest on Fox News and Fox Business; Fox has not commented on whether it plans to continue hosting him despite his diatribes against certain Fox personalities.

    During a February 26 appearance on The Alex Jones Show, Stone claimed that "MSNBC, under pressure from Media Matters ... banned me." From his appearance:

    STONE: This gets even more comical. MSNBC, under pressure from Media Matters from America [sic], this group of twisted freaks who are Clinton apologists, who the Clintons can do no wrong, first they demand I be banned at CNN, where I was never admitted. Now MSNBC, where I have not appeared once this year, and appeared once last year, they've banned me. How do you ban someone who's never been admitted to begin with?

    ALEX JONES (HOST): So why are they announcing it? Just to set the precedent for banning people?

    STONE: Well because they know I have the goods on the Bushes and the Clintons.

    MSNBC declined to comment to Media Matters on the matter.

    Unlike other cable networks, MSNBC has not frequently hosted Stone in recent months. He last appeared on the network in September 2015, and he appeared on the network several times last year (not "once last year," as Stone claimed), according to an iQ media and Nexis search.

    Stone also defended Fox News' coverage of Trump, claiming that the network is "supportive" of Trump and is really "fair and balanced." Stone singled out Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity for giving Trump "his fair shake."

    In addition, Stone attacked CNN's ban by falsely claiming he's been on the network "exactly three times since August." In reality, Stone has been on CNN 22 times since the start of August 2015, according to Nexis. He appeared on CNN nine times from September 2015 through this week.  

    Stone is a regular guest on Jones' program. Jones is America's most prominent conspiracy theorist and has been supporting Trump's candidacy. Despite Jones' toxic history, the Trump campaign has been courting Jones and his audience.
