Alex Jones: I’ll Eat My Neighbors to Survive COVID-19
At one time, Alex Jones was one of the most prominent Conservative commentators in the United States. He was important enough to rate a 2015 interview with Donald Trump, who at the time, was running for the Republican nomination.
Jones’ star has fallen significantly since than as multiple platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, have removed him and his show, Inforwars, from their platforms. That doesn’t mean the host isn’t still making outrageous claims on his program. During a recent broadcast, Jones said he would eat his neighbors if that’s what it took to survive the current pandemic.
“I’ll admit it,” he began. “I will eat my neighbors. I’m not letting my kids die. I’m just going to be honest.”
“I have extrapolated this out. I won’t have to for a few years, because I have food and stuff. But I’m literally looking at my neighbors now, going, ‘Am I ready to hang them up and gut them and skin them and chop them up?’ And you know what, I’m ready. My daughters aren’t starving to death. I’ll eat my neighbors. … I’ll eat your ass, I will.“
The bombastic host concluded his rant, “I’m combat model. Optimum self-efficiency. Probably the leader,” Jones added on his radio broadcast. “My point is, have you thought about this yet? Because I’m somebody that thought I could fix this, and I’m starting to think about having to eat my neighbors. You think I like sizing up my neighbor, how I’m gonna haul him up by a chain? Chop his ass up? I’ll do it. My children aren’t going hungry.”
