Here is a funny story! Your editrix (me) used to teach political science at University of California Irvine. This particular course was on conspiracy theories, and I used lots of true examples of actual conspiracies that were true! In preparing a lecture on Reagan and Bush I promising the Iranians money and weapons if they would just be so kind as to hold onto Jimmy Carter’s hostages until after the election, I searched and searched the Internet for the source of a fact I remembered very clearly: that George Bush’s denial that he could have met with the Iranians in Paris because he had been at a conference that weekend was a bunk alibi; he hadn’t actually gone to the conference until the next day.
I finally found the source.
It was Alex Jones’s Infowars, and oh my God, I was so ashamed.
Which brings us to today. Just this morning, Alex Jones — a senior adviser to Republican nominee for President of the United States of the New World Order — said this on his radio show, as captured by MediaMatters and stolen by us. (You can still click through to see the video, and you should!)
ALEX JONES (HOST): I’m never a lesser of two evils person, but with Hillary, there’s not even the same universe. She is an abject, psychopathic, demon from Hell that as soon as she gets into power is going to try to destroy the planet.
So far, just a common metaphor, like Trump in his second debate saying Bernie Sanders had signed on with “the devil.” No big!
I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out. Folks let me just tell you something, and if media wants to go with this, that’s fine. There are dozens of videos and photos of Obama having flies land on him, indoors, at all times of year, and he’ll be next to a hundred people and no one has flies on them. Hillary, reportedly, I mean, I was told by people around her that they think she’s demon-possessed, okay? I’m just going to go ahead and say it, okay?
That is … less metaphorical!
They said that they’re scared. That’s why when I see her when kids are by her, I actually get scared myself, with a child — with that big rubber face and that — I mean this woman is dangerous, ladies and gentleman. I’m telling you, she is a demon. This is Biblical. She’s going to launch a nuclear war. The Russians are scared of her.
I don’t know, I kind of like that the Russians are scared of her?
Imagine how bad she smells, man?
Is it that old lady smell? I don’t care much for that mix of lavender and talc and rotting TB breath. Oh, it is not?
I’m told her and Obama, just stink, stink, stink, stink. You can’t wash that evil off, man. Told there’s a rotten smell around Hillary. I’m not kidding, people say, they say — folks, I’ve been told this by high up folks. They say listen, Obama and Hillary both smell like sulfur. I never said this because the media will go crazy with it, but I’ve talked to people that are in protective details, they’re scared of her. And they say listen, she’s a frickin’ demon and she stinks and so does Obama. I go, like what? Sulfur. They smell like Hell.
And there you have it, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are actual demons from Hell, which is why flies love Barack Obama and Hillary smells like really eggy farts.
It is just science, case closed.
