Trump Fan Boy Alex Jones Freaks Out Over Jews Running An Evil Conspiracy (VIDEO)
Histrionics king and Donald Trump fan boy Alex Jones is at it again.
Does Alex Jones ever shut up?
This time he’s screeching about the “Jewish mafia.” As one of America’s most infamous conspiracy theorists, he’s been accused of promoting racial and anti-Semitic propaganda before. Now, on the latest edition of The Alex Jones Show, which aired earlier this week, he’s blaming America’s ills on the aforementioned “mafia.”
“They run Uber, they run the health care, they’re going to scam you, they’re going to hurt you,” he said, according to Media Matters.
Then he listed a number of prominent people with Jewish backgrounds that he believes are working with this mafia — Rahm Emanuel, Madeleine Albright, and George Soros. Jones accuses them of being part of a “global, corporate combine” allied with the Japanese, Communists, and other big, bad, naughty no-nos, at least according to Jones.
“I guess I better do some exposés on the Jewish mafia,” he said. Jones further went on to say Emanuel is “a guy foaming at the mouth with knives at Cabinet meetings, basically threatening the president, totally crazed. Who’s got his fingers in everything, screwing us over.”
But he’s not anti-Semitic. Just ask him
“I’m not against Jews.” He just doesn’t like the Jewish mafia, if such a thing even exists.
Jones is usually not known to be particularly anti-Semitic, but his going postal, freak-out behavior is part of his shtick. The batsh*t crazy conspiracy theorizing is what draws in the twit-brained conspiracy nuts.
As Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center notes
“Alex Jones is the primary producer of conspiracy theories in America today.”
And in case you don’t know this, the SPLC is the go-to place if you want to get the true story about conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, major homophobes and other lower life forms.
Jones has screeched about FEMA plots to imprison Americans in concentration camps. He claims every major terrorist attack that’s occurred in the U.S., including 9/11 are all “false flags” secretly plotted by the government so it can take away our civil liberties.
This nut has even claimed that the government was turning frogs gay by putting chemicals in the water. It’s anyone’s guess as to why the government would do something this stupid — but that’s Alex Jones for you. A nut in his own little nutshell.
These screwball assertions fuel Jones’s popularity.

And Trump himself has appeared on his show. You can’t tell me that Trump doesn’t know about the man’s reputation.
Donald Trump Jr. has even promoted Jones on Twitter:

But what’s really bad about this is that Trump is also using anti-Semitic language, notes Vox’s Yochi Dreazen.
“Trump [has alleged] that a global financial cabal is secretly working hand in hand with the media to destroy the United States,” Dreazen notes. “Trump is using barely coded words that directly echo one of the most ancient of all anti-Semitic libels.”
“I don’t write those words glibly, or casually. They’re not words I ever thought I’d need to write about the nominee of a major American political party. And it’s true that Trump’s allegation Thursday that a global financial cabal is secretly working hand in hand with the media to destroy the United States doesn’t include the word ‘Jew.’
“But here’s the thing: It doesn’t need to. Trump is using barely coded words that directly echo one of the most ancient of all anti-Semitic libels. Jews have long been accused of controlling the global financial system. Jews have long been accused of controlling the media. And Jews have long been accused of being disloyal citizens secretly working to maneuver governments to pursue disastrous policies solely for their own benefit. Trump has now chosen to combine all of those charges into a single paranoid and hate-filled rant.”
And hate-filled rants are a specialty for Trump and Jones. That’s pretty much all they ever do is yell out these rants.
Trump has attempted to give Jones credibility, which is something neither of these two deserves. It’s what makes them dangerous.
