While defending himself for calling Sandy Hook a false flag operation, Alex Jones compares himself to Woodward and Bernstein.

If you have finished laughing we can proceed with the post.

Courtesy of CBS News:

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones argued he was acting as a journalist, comparing himself to the Washington Post reporters who uncovered the Watergate scandal, when he questioned the official narrative of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting on his talk show. In written arguments filed Friday, the right-wing radio host moved to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed by the families of some of the 26 people killed in the Connecticut shooting. Jones acknowledged that he had called the shooting a hoax, but said he now believes it happened.

“Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein relied on allegations from ‘Deep Throat’ to link the Nixon Administration to the Watergate break-in,” his lawyers wrote in filing for a dismissal. “Such journalism, questioning official narratives, would be chilled if reporters were subject to liability if they turned out to be wrong.”

Yeah, here’s the thing. Woodward and Bernstein were taking tips from a Nixon insider who fed them information that they then verified through investigative journalism. 

Jones just listens to nuts on the internet and screams the conspiracy theories they describe to him through a bullhorn. 

Not.the.same.

Which is essentially what the attorney for the families said to him as well:

“The First Amendment simply does not protect false statements about the parents of one of the worst tragedies in our nation’s history,” said Bill Bloss, an attorney who represents the families. “Any effort by any of the defendants to avoid responsibility for the harm that they have inflicted will be unsuccessful.”

By the way, serious journalist and first amendment champion Alex Jones also said this recently on the air.

That’s the thing, is like, once it’s [special counsel Robert] Mueller, everyone’s so scared of Mueller, they’d let Mueller rape kids in front of people, which he did. I mean, Mueller covered up for a decade for [Jeffrey] Epstein kidnapping kids, flying them on sex planes, some kids as young as seven years old reportedly, with big perverts raping them to frame people. I mean, Mueller is a monster, man. God, imagine — he’s even above the pedophiles, though. The word is he doesn’t have sex with kids, he just controls it all. Can you imagine being a monster like that? God.

People say, “Well, God, aren’t you scared of him?” I’m scared of not manning up. I’m constantly in fear that I’m not being a real man, and I’m not doing what it takes, and I’m not telling the truth. And so, call it whatever you want, I look at that guy, and he’s a sack of crap. That’s a demon I will take down, or I’ll die trying. So that’s it. It’s going to happen, we’re going to walk out in the square, politically, at high noon, and he’s going to find out whether he makes a move man, make the move first, and then it’s going to happen. It’s not a joke. It’s not a game. It’s the real world. Politically. You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying, bitch. Get ready. We’re going to bang heads. We’re going to bang heads.

Oh yeah, you can almost FEEL the Pulitzer Prize folks getting ready to hand him the award, can’t you?

    GOP State Lawmaker Jason Spencer Resigns After Bonkers ‘Who Is America?’ Appearance
    Spencer exposed his bare buttocks and yelled a variety of racial epithets on Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime program.

    Spencer, who’d faced mounting pressure to resignfollowing the airing of the Showtime program, said he would vacate his seat on July 31, according to a letter submitted to Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, reported CNN and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Ralston said in an earlier statement that Spencer had “disgraced himself and should resign immediately. Georgia is better than this.”

    Spencer, however, initially refused to resign. He apologized for the “ridiculously ugly episode,” but defended himself by saying that Sacha Baron Cohen, the star and creator of “Who Is America?,” had taken “advantage of my paralyzing fear that my family would be attacked.”

    …As the Journal-Constitution noted, Spencer had a financial incentive to want to remain in his seat. Had he lingered till January, he would have amassed an additional $7,000 in salary and, having logged eight years of service, would have become eligible for taxpayer-subsidized health insurance for life.

    From Nazis To Incels: How One Tech Company Helps Hate Groups Thrive
    Cloudflare refuses to regulate the sadistic content it optimizes and protects online.

    By all standards, the forum Incels.me is a hate group. Littered through well over 1 million messages is a cascade of posts calling for women to be raped, decapitated, stabbed, starved, poisoned, skinned, cannibalized, blinded, mutilated, sodomized, tortured, beaten, burned, enslaved and otherwise brutally killed, simply because they are women. (Unedited excerpts from some of these messages appear below. Readers may find them disturbing.)

    Many of Incels.me’s 6,800 members ― sexually frustrated men who identify as involuntarily celibate (incel) ― are strikingly candid about their violent misogyny. Posts such as “I wanna rape her then behead her,” “We have to strike back at all these whores,” “I have groped girls against their will, you should try it” and “I want to kill [women] so fucking bad. I want to take their lives. I want them to fucking suffer” are standard fare on the rapidly growing website.

    Its sister site, Incelocalypse, is a message board for incels who want to make women and children their “rape-slaves.” As HuffPost uncovered in May, it was created by Nathan Larson, a congressional candidate in Virginia who is an openly pro-rape pedophile. The page has been dumped and temporarily forced offline by multiple web domain registrars (most recently Russia’s RU Center), but it resurfaces each time. Its members have repeatedly encouraged each other to commit crimes including kidnapping, rape, incest and homicide.

    One man on the Incelocalypse forum attempted to commission a guide on “how to rape” for $100 last month, noting “the guide should explain how to lure a victim, kill it, what to do with the corpse, and anything else that you think is important.” Another said he would rape female toddlers because “they will all become worthless sluts.”

    Both websites were created within the past year. And both have thrived in an era in which attention has been trained not just on forums for sadistic misogynists, but also on the enabling infrastructure of the internet that sustains them. So how have they survived while brazenly endorsing violence against women? They use Cloudflare.

      ‘From Nazis To Incels And Pedophiles “Inciting Violence vs Freedom of Speech.” ” “Cloudflare was acting like the muscle guarding the podium at a Nazi rally.””

      You may not have heard of Cloudflare. The massive but little-known internet security company has developed a reputation for keeping controversial websites online. It has attracted clients including fascists, hackers, terrorists, incels and pedophiles, and it has sparked debate about web companies’ extralegal role in regulating the online hate speech they optimize and amplify.”
      “The “Unite the Right” rally was organized in part by The Daily Stormer, a Cloudflare-protected neo-Nazi website that encouraged attendees to be violent. After Heyer’s death, the site called her a fat “slut” and urged its readers to crash her funeral.”

      “Cloudflare, however, still serves dozens of other hate groups, including Stormfront.org, another major neo-Nazi site that was established by a Ku Klux Klan leader. As the Southern Poverty Law Center points out, far-right Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik (now known as Fjotolf Hansen) spent time on Stormfront before killing 77 people in 2011. Cloudflare has also been accused of providing cybersecurity services to terrorist websites.

      Free Speech vs. Violent Hate Speech

      Founded in 2009 to “power and protect the entire internet,” Cloudflare now handles nearly 10 percent of all internet requests for more than 2.5 billion people worldwide” “The notion that a website “is nothing but speech,” as Prince suggested, seems almost quaint today. Online writings about harming people aren’t always jokes or fantasies, and countless individuals ― including incels ― have been radicalized in online groups to commit acts of mass violence. ”
      “Cloudflare does not prohibit any kind of abusive behavior or incitement to violence. Instead, it broadly requires clients to use their websites “in compliance with any and all applicable laws and regulations,” and reserves the right to suspend or terminate its services without notice or reason.

      As such, comments including “All the time, I think of new schemes by which incels might kidnap and rape femoids [women],” “I’ve gone to sleep every night fantasizing about torturing women,” “We need to shatter feminists’ sense of security and terrorize the crap out of them,” “I hope the cunt [his mother] gets gang raped and her body chopped up and left on the side of the road like a piece of shit,” “I’m obsessed with murdering some of them [women he knows],” and other alarming posts ― some which are too gruesome to republish here ― are rampant on Incels.me and remain posted there today without consequence.” $O

Author Andrew Solomon and Director Rachel Dretzin talk about their new feature documentary “Far From the Tree” based on Solomon’s book.’
    “To what extent should parents be held responsible for who their children grow up to be? That’s the question raised by the new documentary Far From the Tree, which explores the lives of children who are somehow radically different from their parents.”
    “aims to understand how society decides which hereditary traits and conditions are considered illnesses and which are considered identities. ”

    “A person who is gaslighting an individual or group that they have chosen to target does so by getting them to doubt their own memory, perception, and reality. Through persistent lying, misdirection, and contradiction, the gaslighter attempts to delegitimize the victim’s beliefs by confusing and destabilizing them.”

    ‘“We are unable to properly grieve for our baby or move on with our lives because you, arguably the most powerful man on the planet, have deemed that the attacks on us are immaterial, that providing assistance in removing threats is too cumbersome, and that our lives are less important than providing a safe haven for hate,” ‘

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jul/25/mark-zuckerberg-facebook-sandy-hook-parents-open-letter

    “Almost immediately after the massacre of 20 little children, all under the age of seven, and six elementary school teachers and staff, the attacks on us began. Conspiracy groups and anti-government provocateurs began making claims on Facebook that the massacre was a hoax, that the murdered were so-called “crisis actors” and that their audience should rise up to “find out the truth” about our families. These claims and calls to action spread across Facebook like wildfire and, despite our pleas, were protected by Facebook.

    While terms you use, like “fake news” or “fringe conspiracy groups”, sound relatively innocuous, let me provide you with some insight into the effects of allowing your platform to continue to be used as an instrument to disseminate hate. We have endured online, telephone, and in-person harassment, abuse, and death threats.

      FB”is using a range of techniques including artificial intelligence to counter Russian operatives or others who use deceptive tactics and false information to manipulate public opinion.”
      “the company reiterated on Tuesday that it will not take down postings simply because they are false. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg last week drew fire for citing Holocaust denials as an example of false statements that would not be removed if they were sincerely voiced.” “The note by Alex Stamos, written in March after he said he was going to leave the company, urged colleagues to heed feedback about “creepy” features, collect less data and “deprioritize short-term growth and revenue” to restore trust. He also urged the company’s leaders to “pick sides when there are clear moral or humanitarian issues.”

      Stamos posted the note on an internal Facebook site but Reuters confirmed its authenticity. It was first disclosed by Buzzfeed News.””Lyons said the company was making progress in smoothing its process for fact-checkers assigned to label false information. Once an article is labeled false, users are warned before they share it and subsequent distribution drops 80 percent, Lyons said.

      Posts from sites that often distribute false information are ranked lower in the calculations that determine what each user sees but are not entirely removed from view.

      Gleicher said those seeking to deliberately promote misinformation often use fake accounts to amplify their content or run afoul of community standards, both of which are grounds for removing posts or entire pages.

      He said the company would use a type of artificial intelligence known as machine learning as part of its efforts to root out abuses.”

    Alex Jones is truly insane. But he’s also dangerous because he has lots of people listening to him and lapping every crazy word up. May a bolt of lightening leap from the sky and attack him for comparing himself to Woodward and Bernstein who had their finest moments with the Watergate investigation.
