Right-wing conspiracy theorist and anti-vaccine crusader Alex Jones went on a ballistic tirade against Bill Gates and Doctor Anthony Fauci while ingesting prescription drugs that are unapproved for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19.
“You know what this is? This is ivermectin for humans. It won a Nobel Prize as an antiviral,” Jones incorrectly stated on Friday’s edition of his InfoWars propaganda spectacle.
Ivermectin did win a Nobel Prize in 2015, but not for being an antiviral. Rather, the drug was found to be a successful treatment for malaria, which is a parasite.
“And this is inhalable – oh these are the tablets – steroids,” he continued, referring to a box of methylprednisolone, the generic version of Medrol, a corticosteroid used to treat conditions such as allergies, arthritis, and cancer.
“So lemme show ya. I was gonna do this anyways earlier. See this? See this Fauci? You see this Bill Gates? I’m going to kill those prions, you bastard murderers, you’re going to hit me with a bioweapon? You monster. You want to suppress me? You want to kill me? You son of a b*tch! You g*ddamn demon. You think I’m easy to kill? You think I’m going to roll over to your crap?” he asked an imaginary Fauci.
Jones swallowed a pill (or at least appeared to) and washed it down with something out of a glass green bottle.
“No! And Joe Rogan kicked your murdering ass, too. You’d love to bury him, too, you little monster maggot,” Jones said before taking a second pill (or at least appeared to) and subsequently comparing Fauci to Holocaust war criminals.
“He’s in this National Geographic piece about, ‘oh I don’t usually deal with my enemies right away, I get them later.’ Yeah, you creep up on them with a poison injection dressed up in a lab coat, you little Josef Mengele, Nuremberg Code-violating monster. Ya damn monster,” he thrashed.
Next, Jones completely lost control and began hollering about ivermectin’s irrelevant Nobel Prize – for which he cited the wrong year – and how smart podcaster Joe Rogan is for having taken it himself.
“See how our little cancer proteins like that,” he quipped after popping the third tablet (or at least appeared to).
“Nobel Prize-winning – for humans. Nobel Prize-winning for humans! Nobel Prize-winning for humans! Nobel Prize-winning for humans! Nobel Prize-winning for humans! What, 2005? Nobel Prize-winning for humans! Nobel Prize-winning for humans! OHHH, Joe Rogan, Joe Rogan, he wanted us to drink the horse paste. He’s stupid. I bet he got it from Alex Jones. They’re both so dumb. They’re both gonna be dead,'” Jones sneered mockingly of his critics.
“Yeah, that’s why Joe’s worth like $300 million, yeah, he’s real stupid,” Jones said.
“That’s why he lives in a $60 million house on the river. You leftists taking all the shots and dying are the dumb*sses,” Jones brayed. “He’s the one that headlines with Dave Chappelle, not you. You’re stupid. And I sure wish you’d wake up. But you sit there calling me stupid – an independent media person who built the biggest independent media operation in the world that changed the whole paradigm of my badass listeners – and you sit around and laugh at us?”
Jones then began screaming into the camera about how amazing ivermectin is and proclaimed that what Fauci really wants is to have planet Earth “for himself.” Again, it is not an antiviral, it did not win a Nobel Prize for being one, and it has not been proven to be either a safe or effective remedy against SARS-COV-2:
MEDICAL DOCTORS GAVE THAT TO ME! IT IS INCREDIBLE! IT HELPED MY FAMILY! IT HELPED ME! IT HELPED EVERYBODY! AND IT’S APPROVED FOR HUMANS FOR ALL SORTS OF VIRAL STUFF BUT THAT MURDERER FAUCI DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW CAUSE HE WANTS THE PLANET FOR HIMSELF AND HE WANTS YOU DEAD! WELL GUESS WHAT FAUCI, WE AIN’T ROLLING OVER AND DYING SO EASILY YOU LITTLE MURDERING…
The video abruptly ended there, but we can probably fill in the blanks.

Alex Jones reveals that he and his family have been taking ivermectin, and takes some live on air to prove it. Two things: 1. I’ve froze this frame-by-frame like the Zapruder film, and I think I’m seeing slight of hand. 2. His behavior after shouldn’t make anyone want to take it! pic.twitter.com/kIV8GUJGJ3
