Alex Jones hosted anti-choice activist Clenard Childress on his “Infowars” program yesterday to discuss the Charleston church shooting, which the two agreed was a government “set-up” intended to foment racial violence, which would then justify the implementation of martial law.
Childress suspected that the shooter was “on a drug” and “given instructions” to massacre the church members in order to “cause a race war” in South Carolina.
“He wasn’t just trying to kill black people, he wanted to stir folks up, or whoever advised him,” Jones said, adding that the “this guy with a chili bowl hair cut guy” looks “mentally disabled” and probably not capable of planning such an event alone.
“We’re being set up,” Childress said.
“This is all a set-up.” Jones agreed: “Oh it is. Look at the priming, look at the preparations…. You can see all of the preparation building towards this, this is the big move, it’s a race war to bring in total chaos and then total federalization with this evil Justice Department, they even got rid of the other attorney general who had baggage, they put the new one in for the political persecutions of conservatives and Christians. They’re dropping the hammer.”
Childress added that the race war is all designed to give the government an excuse to “bring in martial law very quickly.”
In response to the Charleston A.M.E. church shooting last night, “InfoWars” host Alex Jones said today that he has heard from “every historical analyst, financial analyst, cultural analyst” that that a race war is coming to the U.S. this summer. He also learned from Matt Drudge, the conservative pundit, that “we could see the fall of America is coming.”
Jones argued that “America is being set up for a fall, and out of that the new socialist nightmare” will emerge.
According to Jones, George Soros is the nefarious force behind the Black Lives Matter campaign, which he said Soros will use to stir up racial hatred and engineer a “cultural crisis,” just as he allegedly did in Ukraine. Once the race war materializes, Jones continued, then the federal government will intervene and set up a tyrannical state.
Fellow “InfoWars” host David Knight said that the Charleston shooting “could be used as a false flag,” linking it to a 1993 attack on a white church in South Africa, which he also suspected was a false flag attack staged by white people who opposed the end of apartheid to stoke racial tensions.
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
This week, we learn that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are in cahoots with radical Islam, Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition is a hoax, Ferguson has unleashed a wave of criminals, and gays continue to destroy the nation.
Obama’s Muslim Plot
Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly explained in an interview with WorldNetDaily this week that President Obama is planning for the U.S. to take in Muslim refugees from war-torn nations such a Syria as part of his plan to wage “war on America,” knowing full well that Syrian refugees seek to “take over the world and establish their caliphate.”
“I don’t think he should let any Muslims in this country,” Schlafly said. “There is no reason why they should come in.” By permitting Muslim refugees to enter the U.S., Schlafly argued, “Obama is trying to absolutely change America by bringing in people who have no sympathy with what Americans believe.”
On her Eagle Forum blog, Schlafly also praised Ann Coulter’s new anti-immigrant screed “Adios America,” thanking Coulter for “alerting Americas to how Obama and the Democrats are destroying the land we love” by “diluting our population” with individuals “who commit all sorts of unspeakable crimes, in particular crimes against very young women and girls.”
Michael Savage joined in on the conspiracy theory, calling Obama a “con man shyster” who is attempting to destroy America by “injecting, like a virus, Muslims from Syria into all-white communities in America.” Obama, according to Savage, has also taken “infected children from Honduras and put them in every school district he could.”
Plenty of right-wing activists are upset about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition. But some have looked beyond the headlines to reveal the true conspiracy that’s afoot.
Alex Jones, host of “InfoWars”, hypothesized that Jenner’s announcement was actually just a plot to distract Americans from Obama’s mischievous, scheming ways. Jones declared that he does not “like being force-fed constantly this weird, one agenda. The obsession, it’s got to be from like five, six years, because I cover media, with the trannies and transvestites.”
“What’s behind the agenda?” Jones asked, revealing that the true agenda of the media is to not only distract us from Obama’s civil war but to “make the coolest thing to be” a “tranny or a transvestite” and glorify a “creepy old guy.”
Jones is not alone in his suspicions, as Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media wondered in Barbwire if Jenner’s transition was just “a hoax” to promote her upcoming TV show. Kincaid argued that the greatest threat is to children, criticizing Jenner’s supporters for sending an “extremely damaging” message. Kincaid made sure to warn us that “the nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.”
While it may seem like Jenner is simply showing the world her authentic self, Kincaid urged us to question, “Where is the evidence that this is anything but a hoax?”
Hillary Clinton And Her Radical Muslim Cronies
The right loves to hate Hillary Clinton, and the latest conspiracy theories paint Clinton as a supporter and friend of “murderous Islamic thugs.” Rick Wiles, host of “Trunews,” spoke to Christopher Farrell of Judicial Watch Tuesday about his group’s claim that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was “arming Al Qaeda” and coordinating arms shipments to Islamic terrorists in Syria. While this connection may force some to then question why Islamic terrorists attacked the Benghazi compound in 2012, this question did not concern Wiles and Farrell.
Wiles compared the end of Gary Hart’s presidential campaign due to a photograph surfacing “of him with a pretty blonde sitting on his lap” to the apparent “murderous Islamic thugs sitting on the lap of Hillary Clinton.”
While a Republican-led investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence found Judicial Watch’s allegations about arm ships to Syria to be as credible as Hillary playing Santa with Islamic terrorists, Farrell and Wiles are not the only ones to remain unconvinced. David Horowitz, a far-right conservative activist, alleged in an interview with Newsmax TV on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, leaked information to the militants who killed four American diplomats in Benghazi. Clinton “got four people killed in Benghazi,” Horowitz argued. “She, you know, disclosed her private emails to Huma Abedin, a Muslim Brotherhood operative that showed where Ambassador Stephens was all the time, making him a perfect target.”
‘The Ferguson Effect”
Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal last Friday titled “The New Nationwide Crime Wave” and the effect has been a week of media outlets sounding the alarm. Apparently, the civil unrest that began after the killing of Michael Brown has flooded the country, inspiring widespread crime.
What this theory lacks in nuance it makes up for in cherry-picked statistics that create a misleading image of increased violence and death. Switching between comparing shootings, violent felonies, and gun-related homicides, Mac Donald argued that the U.S. is “in the grips of a hysteria against cops” and that “cops have gotten the message that they should back off policing,” causing the flood gates to open and crime to wash over the nation.
This tsunami of crime, claimed Mac Donald, is the fault of the “mainstream media, the university presidents talking about assaults on blacks and of course the president and former attorney general.”
Anti-Gay Conspiracy Of The Week
This week in anti-gay conspiracies, gay men are exporting sodomy “to the entire universe” and the prospect of gay marriage will destroy America and cause millions to flee and/or demand secession.
Mike Heath, former head of the Maine Family Policy Council and current blogger on BarbWire, warned that the “[gay] virus is spreading rapidly. It won’t be enough to pervert the whole world with this evil anti-family worldview. Since the developed governments of the world aspire to colonizing planets we have to prepare for the export of sodomy to other worlds—to the entire universe!” Referencing the Apostle Paul, Heath pointed out that “you can tell when a nation has become a walking corpse when it has endorsed perverted sex.”
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, in an interview with CNS News, had a similarly dire warning, claiming that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would “literally cause the destruction of our country.” The court is “toying with something that’s like dynamite and will destroy our country,” he said.
If, however, by some stroke of luck America does not blow up following a ruling in favor of marriage equality, WorldNetDaily founder and editor Joseph Farah promises that it would be met by secession and mass emigration. Farah wrote that “we need a Promised Land. We need and Exodus strategy.” He asked if there are “any governors or legislatures out there among the 50 states willing to secede to offer a refuge for the God-fearing?” If governors cannot promise Farah this, he promised us there would be a “pilgrimage by millions of Americans” fleeing marriage equality.
CNS News posted an audio clip of part of the interview:

During a rant yesterday about how President Obama “could cause a civil war” by supposedly trying to “restrict the Second Amendment,” “InfoWars” host Alex Jones abruptly switched topics by talking about Caitlyn Jenner’s interview with Vanity Fair. But apparently, the two aren’t so disconnected, as Jones explained that Jenner’s announcement is actually a plot to distract Americans from Obama’s evil schemes.
“I don’t like being force-fed constantly this weird, one agenda,” Jones said. “The obsession, it’s got to be from like five, six years, because I cover media, with trannies and transvestites. Just constantly force-feeding it, shoving it down my throat, pun intended, as if it is the only thing in the universe, the only thing in the world. What’s behind the agenda?”
Jones said the sinister agenda is to make “the coolest thing to be is a tranny or a transvestite” and glorify a “creepy old guy.”
Alex Newman, a far-right journalist and educator, appeared on Alex Jones’ show “InfoWars” last week to speak about his new book, “Crimes of the Educators.” According to Newman, “every tyrant in all of history has understood that to control and to enslave a nation you need to control the education system.” In the United States, he said, “John Dewey was the key figure” in laying the groundwork for tyranny.
Newman told Jones that the public school system is “mass-producing illiterates and collectivists” because “if you don’t have a dumbed down population, if you don’t have a population that’s sufficiently indoctrinated in this process, it’ll never fly.” That is why, Newman claimed, public education “is really at the heart of this globalist effort, really, just to be blunt about it, to enslave the world.”
Jones agreed, claiming that “top globalists” shaping the New World Order admitted to him, “off the record obviously,” that they do indeed control the public schools and are turning young people into their minions.
Newman continued by telling a hopeful story about when he “went to the Global Home Education Conference in Berlin in 2012 and there was a lot of Russians there. And they told me that homeschooling is totally free and wide open in Russia and that was amazing for me.”
While Newman claimed he “wouldn’t trust [Russian President Vladimir] Putin as far as [he] could throw him,” he agreed with Jones’ opinion of Putin that “you got to judge a tree by its fruits, and he’s promoting homeschool. He’s promoting masculine men and ‘men should be tough’ and, like, John Wayne. It’s the opposite of us, you know. It’s ‘men are good role models’ and ‘fathers are good.’”
Newman, agreeing with Jones that “when we see Russia going in the opposite of where we’re going we know we’re in trouble,” concluded, “yeah, and in the United States we’re moving towards crushing homeschooling. The government is becoming extremely hostile and the talking heads on MSNBC telling us that ‘the children belong to the community,’ and Hillary Clinton with her ‘village to raise a child.’ Homeschooling is one of the best options that parents could possibly seize upon right now. You need to get your kids out of the government school. You need to teach them to read using phonics. You need to teach them real history. You need to teach them the facts. And that is how we’re going to stop this criminal enterprise.”
“If Operation Jade Helm were being conducted under a President Paul or President Cruz or President Walker, three of the conservative frontrunners I guess we could say, we might be watching to see what’s happening, but we wouldn’t have the same inability to accept what the administration is saying,” he said. “This administration has not earned our trust. They have lied repeatedly. So even if what they’re saying happens to be true, who’s to know?”
Jones — who was instrumental in pushing the Jade Helm conspiracy theory before it broke into the Republican mainstream — heartily agreed, saying, “The president is acting as a dictator more and more, Congress is letting him do it, and it might be too little too late, who knows what power grab he may pull. This shows a little of that old American instinct, like Ronald Reagan said, to ‘trust but verify.’”
Jones told Pratt that “everybody knows” that the Obama administration is “training the military to take on vets and gun owners, and saying we’re the threat, not Al Qaeda or ISIS,” to which Pratt added that the administration is trying to fire military officers who believe in the Constitution.
In an interview with Alex Jones yesterday, in which he warned that America has descended into a race war in which President Obama will begin arming the Crips and the Bloods, Michael Savage cited the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, as proof that radical Islamists have “penetrated” and “infiltrated” the Obama administration.
“We know that the president’s middle name is not ‘Jesus.’ We know that the military has been told to stand down. We know that the police has been told to stand down. We know that there is only one scared religion in America and it’s the founding religion, it’s the invasive religion,” Savage said. “Someone in that team, in the White House, is playing for the other side, they’re not on our side.”
Savage said that Obama “has been at war with America” since he graduated from college “and discovered his Afro roots,” when he “found out that by acting like a black radical, everyone kissed his feet and look where he is today. So why should he stop now? He wasn’t a radicalized young man but he found out that the white people fell on his feet the minute he acted out the Black Panther game. ”
Yesterday on “InfoWars,” Alex Jones invited conservative talk show host Michael Savage to discuss his new novel “Countdown to Mecca,” but not before Jones asked Savage about President Obama’s plot to destroy America.
“What’s the score right now: patriots vs. the French Revolution crazies?” Jones asked. Savage had bad news to report: “The guillotines are ready, the guillotines are ready and they are greasing the blades. How much more successful can they be? Internment camps? I mean, what is next with this group of maniacs?”
Savage told Jones that the Obama administration is trying to purge the military of leaders “who could have led a movement against an illegitimate government” in order to weaken resistance to his socialist plans. “One general after the other was purged like Stalin purged them, only instead of shooting them first they smeared the generals,” he said.
The two agreed that Obama is now degrading the police by stoking a race war in which he will “deputize” gang members affiliated with the Crips and the Bloods. Savage told Jones:
Remember my last book, ‘Stop the Coming Civil War’? Guess what, it started. Has there been a civil war? Yea, it’s a slow burning civil war. What do you think we are looking at here? It’s a race war. These are their shock troops, they don’t have the brown shirts yet, they don’t have the armbands, but soon Obama could deputize them. Isn’t that a natural army for him? Take the Crips and the Bloods, give them a green uniform and give them a weapon and they’ll keep order in the streets. Won’t they?
Later in the program, Savage said that Obama has “got the gangs on the streets on his side” and “he’s got them armed.”
“You’re going to see more race war right up until the Labor Day of 2016 for an obvious reason,” he said, alluding to the next election. He claimed that Obama won’t declare martial law or force people into internment camps just yet because “they’re going to take the street garbage and they’re going to take the illegal immigrants and they’re going to warp the entire election.”
“He’s performing along the lines of any other petty dictator,” Savage said. “He is Al Sharpton with a smoother act.”
Yesterday, “InfoWars” host Alex Jones marked the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing the only way he knows how: by insisting that the attack, which left 168 people dead, was a government “false flag” operation aimed at discrediting conservative talk radio and “the liberty movement.”
Jones called the Oklahoma City tragedy a Nazi-inspired “open-and-shut” false flag that was used to paint all conservatives as terrorists.
In a special segment marking the anniversary of the Bundy standoff, which centered around the rancher’s refusal to recognize court rulings which ordered him to pay grazing fees, Jones claimed that federal forces were ready to “massacre” the activists at the ranch but didn’t because “if they would have massacred the people out there, it would have caused a revolution from our angle, no amount of false flags would have won.”
Blaming the murder of two police officers by a couple who had spent time at the Bundy ranch on a government “falseflag” operation, Jones claimed that the government backed down in Nevada because they want to provoke a civil war by staging a false flag attack on a daycare center and blaming it on right-wing extremists.
“It came that moment of chicken, they backed down and it freaked the gangsters out like Harry Reid,” Jones said. “And they didn’t understand, when they blow up federal buildings and blame it on us or shoot a few cops and blame it on some loons that are upset with super hero stuff and into nihilism, we’re not going to buy you blaming us. We’re not here to be enslaved, we’re not here to be cannon fodder in your war, we don't want a physical war, but push comes to shove, it’s over.
“And if they would have massacred the people out there, it would have caused a revolution from our angle, no amount of false flags would have won. That’s why they don’t want to have the revolution there and backed off. They want to have false flags to say we launched the revolution by blowing up daycare centers — guaranteed they’ll pick a place with kids, theme park, you name it — they’re going to blame us.”
When Rick Santorum joined other GOP presidential hopefuls for a “national security” summit hosted by right-wing conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney last weekend, it shouldn’t have been a surprise that they would encounter fringe conspiracy theorists in the audience, including one activist who asked Santorum a winding question about immigration, an imminent communist takeover and President Obama’s plot to nuke Charleston, South Carolina.
As we reported on Monday, Santorum responded to the activist’s accusation not by rebutting her conspiracy theory but by taking offense to her claim that Santorum, a former U.S. senator, had some responsibility for the congressional GOP leadership’s response to Obama’s immigration actions. He went on to label the president a “tyrant.”
The story of Obama’s purported plot to detonate a nuclear bomb in Charleston, which the questioner said occurred just “a few months ago,” has been circulating in far-right outlets for several years.
Garrow pointed to a spike in dolphin deaths, which were likely caused by the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill, as proof that three U.S. military officials thwarted Obama’s plot by detonating a nuclear bomb in the ocean, keeping Charleston safe from attack.
He told Jones that these three patriots, along with God, stopped Obama by safely detonating one of the devices off of the Carolina coast. Garrow’s bizarre claims must have struck a chord, as he appeared last year alongside then-Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., and aspiring anti-Obama coup leader Paul Vallely at a Michigan “Freedom Summit.”
Now that gay people and the Muslim Brotherhood have taken over the government, conservative pundits have a lot of thoughts that they want to share — scary thoughts about anti-Christian persecution and a (non-existent) Egyptian court case that may throw two American leaders behind bars.
Jones was, of course, in complete agreement, telling Gilbert, “That’s what I’ve found when I’ve been around socialists and communists at events over the decades.”
“I’ve been around a lot of them at all sorts of behind-the scenes Democratic conventions,” he said. “They’re really like criminal, bank robber types, like felon types I’ve been around before that are really creepy and have bad will towards people. And behind the scenes they’ll go, ‘Listen, when we take over we’re going to kill everybody. We want blood.’”
“They really are demonic villains, but on the surface, it’s like ‘I’m liberal.’ They are just so sick.”
It’s no secret that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is a hugefan of Sen. Rand Paul, and he is positively giddy about the prospect of the Kentucky Republican running for president.
On Monday, the “InfoWars” host urged his followers not to back a third-party candidate but to “take over one of the two big parties” and rally around people like Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who are disliked by the “power structure.”
Jones told his viewers that Paul is the real deal, and if he appears to have moderated his views or distanced himself from his father’s extreme positions over the last few years, it is only because he is “playing politics” with the elitists in the media and government who are intent on destroying him.
I’ve known Rand Paul since 1995. He’s been at Austin [home of InfoWars], we’ve interviewed him. I am one of the first people to ever get him on air, probably the first. I know Rand Paul and I know he’s for real. That’s why even though he has played politics with them and come out and said some things that they want to hear, the Atlantic Monthly and others are saying 'don’t believe him, he’s nuts like his father,' because yeah, he is a constitutionalist patriot like his father and they know that. He’s playing politics with them, like Clinton played politics in saying he didn’t want your guns or Obama did. Well, he’s doing that on the opposite end, and they know it and they don’t like it and they’re coming after him. Rand Paul is awesome.
After spending a week denouncing non-existent “no-go zones,” it was no surprise that conservatives steered their anti-Islam anger into attacks on President Obama, especially after his State of the Union address.
The congressman told the “InfoWars” host that abortions after 20 weeks are “partial birth abortions,” which is actually a specific procedure banned by a 2003 law, and called on Republicans to rally around the bill.
Alex Jones was positively thrilled: “If we get rid of this abortion industry, I think the curse that is on this country, and who can deny that we are under a curse, will be lifted. Who can kill 55 million babies and get away with it? It’s just unbelievable.”
