Alex Jones Admits "Performance Art" in Lawsuit

Infowars homepage

Alex Jones of InfoWars has developed an incredible following for his show and site, where he often promotes some of the most freakish and extreme conspiracy theories.

Wilhite said using InfoWars to judge Alex Jones would be like evaluating Jack Nicholson based on his interpretation of the Joker in Batman, the Statesman writes. Well, his lawyer is now arguing in court that Jones is simply "playing a character" just like "a performance artist".

Kelly Jones finalized the divorce in 2015 and the two have been fighting over custody of their 14-year-old son and 9- and 12-year-old daughters since then. "The children are there, watching him broadcast", she said. Erica Lafferty lost her mother in that shooting and has called on Trump to disavow Jones for his conspiracy theories, but Trump has never responded.

Meanwhile, lawyers for the warring Joneses began seating a jury in the Travis County courthouse for what's expected to be a contentious two-week hearing, court officials confirmed.

Kelly Jones, who is seeking sole or joint custody of their three children, said during the pretrial hearing that the on-air personality is the real Alex Jones, the American-Statesman reported.

Recently, Jones went into a homophobic rant against Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), a critic of Donald Trump.

Jones later described his anti-Schiff rant as "clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art".

"This case is not about Infowars, and I don't want it to be about Infowars", District Judge Orlinda Naranjo said to the legal team of the couple. Alex Jones was reacting to his claim that the congressman had linked him to alleged Russian hacking and involvement in last year's presidential election. He predicted that Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show would be a satanic ritual, and he accused her of being involved in child sex-trafficking rings run out of pizza parlors, an operation he claimed was headed by Hillary Clinton.

After the theory spread, a North Carolina man who said he listened to the "Alex Jones Show" came to investigate the conspiracy theory and fired a semiautomatic rifle inside the pizzeria. Mr.

"Sandy Hook is a completely fake, with actors, in my view, manufactured". In 2015, Trump told him, "Your reputation is unbelievable". Is it even possible for Alex Jones to find a jury box full of his peers? "I say every day we're going to destroy you with the truth".
