    The performance artist offers more insight into his fertile imagination:

    InfoWars’ Alex Jones: I Had ‘Form of Psychosis’ While Pushing Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theories

    It actually gets better:

    Jones blamed his mental state on the “trauma of the media and the corporations lying so much,” saying that he couldn’t “trust anything anymore,” and he didn’t really know what reality was.He also admitted to the lawyer of one of the suing parents that he was susceptible to “mass group think.”


    Psychosis. Mental state. Mass group think. Indeed.

    Nothing quite shouts personal responsibility like blaming one’s actions on corporations and the media. Jones is simply trying to limit his liability in the lawsuit against him. He will be back gassing on about Martian slave camps by the end of the day.

    At the heart of what he said lies a pretty deep paranoia.

    Group think and paranoia, that's not a good combo.

    You mean like blaming all societies woes on an imaginary "PC Police" and "Regressives"?

    I am not so sure it’s even about that. I think he is a common grifter and will say whatever it takes get his acolytes to open their wallets and hearts. In that order.

    That too, but look at what he has helped create: This entirely alternate, closed circuit universe in which inhabitants only trust what they observe within that universe.

    To be fair, the press and corporations are kind enough to give them enough grist to keep that universe alive and thriving. A handy kernel of truth to keep the wheel turning.

    But holy crap, this guy is used as a "news source".

    alex jones was the first person trump thanked after the 'election' for his support & receiving the support of his fans.

    think about that.

    Again, Stormy, what he says is no crazier than what you come on here every day and say.

    Exactly. He is simply telling the court what he believes that HIS FOLLOWERS must have going on in THEIR heads to reach the point at which his bullshit becomes their reality.

    He knows that people like Dale Smith and MindWars have a deep distrust of all of our institutions and that they have no idea what is fact and what is fiction. He uses that knowledge.

    And now he’s pretending to be one of his own victims.

    Fun, fun, fun.
