InfoWars host and primordial ooze in a polo shirt Alex Jones has been profiting from the harassment and intimidation of the grieving parents of murdered kindergarteners for a full decade. Thankfully, he learned on Thursday that even if your blood money looks green, it still comes with some serious karmic consequences and some epic payback. Literally.
Jones has been ordered to pay nearly $1 billion to the fifteen plaintiffs who could be audibly heard sniffling and sobbing as the court clerk read out each individual ruling from the jury. The barely human fecal impaction reacted in real-time during his streaming hatefest and mocked the verdict, invoking the shootings in Uvalde and Parkland during a rant that’s not going to do anyone any good to post.
While most regular people were rejoicing on social media at Jones’s expense — yes, we’re allowed to enjoy the schadenfreude when we’ve watched those families suffer through unimaginable constant retraumatization — there were those that think Jones wasn’t given a fair verdict. And those people are the absolute worst kind of subhuman bottom-feeders, starting with actual Congressional Republicans.
No matter what you think of Alex Jones all he did was speak words.
He was not the one who pulled the trigger.
Were his words wrong and did he apologize? Yes.
That’s what freedom of speech is. Freedom to speak words.
Political persecution must end.https://t.co/3X81xOCS9j

Yes, the about-to-be-censured-AGAIN Marjorie Taylor Greene had to do one of her usual negative attention-whoring garbage takes on something that has nothing to do with her, because without any committee assignments, she has nothing to do at all. Yes, the mother of three teenagers (two of them girls) who claims to advocate “for children” with her dumb bills that will never get passed while she hangs out with the target of an FBI sex trafficking investigation. Yes, the same exact person who went after David Hogg. That one.
An old tweet from opportunistic MAGAt J.D. “Hillbilly Effigy” Vance also recently resurfaced and HOO BOY does JD have some ‘splainin’ to do. Although it would probably just be more hooey from the Ohio Liar who quietly handed his ass over to Tim Ryan before leaving their debate the other night.

I’m sure there are more of them posting pro-Jones stuff while he hawks his worthless “supplements” and cries about being poor on his multi-million-dollar grift-a-thon, but I don’t need to help them. The best thing to do now is to just donate to Democrats who back stricter gun reform and vote out the hateful death merchants on the right who go to bed every night on a bed stuffed with Russian-fueled NRA cash.
The damage Alex Jones has done to the lives of these families is horrific—nearly a billion dollars doesn’t solve their pain-but also true that the end of infowars would be a public service
