Alex Jones, known for being the mind behind Infowars.com and helping catapult Donald Trump to the presidency, is in a custody battle with his ex-wife, Kelly. The two will be hammering it out over the next two weeks in an Austin, Texas court. Kelly’s weapon of choice its Alex’s show on Infowars.
Jones is almost always known first and foremost for being a conspiracy theorist. His behavior over the years has been wild. A quick YouTube search of crazy Jones moments will enlighten you if you aren’t already aware. He’s a bit of an exaggerator. A little bit off the cuff. A little… well, crazy. His ex-wife says this is a reason he shouldn’t have custody. His lawyer says its an act.
Kelly Jones spoke in a recent pretrial hearing, saying that her ex-husband is “not a stable person”.
“I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress… He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped… He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”
The radio host’s lawyer, Randall Wilhite, is arguing against using Jones’ on-air persona as evidence the he is an unfit parent. “He’s playing a character”, said Wilhite. “He is a performance artist.”
How Will This Effect Infowars?
The mainstream media, in all of their lost glory, are focusing the story not on Jones’ children, but on the quote of Jones being a “performance artist.” Liberals are licking their chops. To them, this proves that Jones doesn’t believe a word of what he says. That’s hardly the case.
Jones does go over the top. Some of his theories about the new world order are very hard to believe. Sometimes just the noises he makes while on air give a casual listener pause. This doesn’t mean that Alex Jones is fake, or that what he talks about or what is published on Infowars.com is necessarily untrue.
Luckily, the judge in this case, Orlinda Naranjo, is insisting that this isn’t about Infowars. This is about the children.
“This case is not about Infowars, and I don’t want it to be about Infowars.”
