››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones, who is being courted by Donald Trump's presidential campaign, is smearing Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as "a dangerous, evil," man comparable to Hitler and Lenin, and falsely claiming he wants to put people in "forced relocation" camps. Jones has also launched unhinged attacks against "stupid" and "self-propelled trash" Sanders supporters, suggesting they need to have their "jaws broken" and their "moron heads" slapped.

Trump-Boosting Alex Jones Is America's Leading Conspiracy Theorist

Jones Believes The Government Was Behind 9-11 And Other Catastrophes. Jones is the host of The Alex Jones Show and proprietor of the conspiracy website Infowars.com. He believes the government was behind the 9/11 attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, and the mass shootings in San Bernardino, Aurora, Newtown, and Tucson (among others). Jones ultimately believes that a cabal of secretive global elites is working behind the scenes to, in the words of one of his films, "exterminate 80% of the world's population, while enabling the 'elites' to live forever with the aid of advanced technology."

Trump Has Appeared On Jones' Program And His Campaign Is Courting Him And His Audience. Jones has repeatedly promoted Donald Trump's presidential campaign, stating that "we have to defend him because the ideas he's putting out in general are very good." A reporter for Jones' Infowars joined Trump adviser Stephen Miller in trying to get out the vote for Trump before the New Hampshire primary. Trump, who appeared on Jones' program and praised the host as having an "amazing" reputation, is the only current presidential candidate who engages with Jones and his fringe ideology.

Following Criticism, Jones Says He Was Just Speaking "Figuratively" When He Said It'd Be Great To See "Jaws Broken."

Jones To Sanders Supporters: "I Will Slap You Upside Your Moron Heads Until You Wake Up." During a screed about the purported ignorance of "idiots" who support Sanders supporters, Jones said, "I will slap you upside your moron heads until you wake up to this. You will wake up about communism, you will grow up, you will find out why Bill Gates and Bernie Sanders support it, and Warren Buffet, and every other piece of trash, globalist parasite, trillionaire raping of the world."
