Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is pretty popular with conservative voters, in part because of his anti-government rants, his pro-gun stance that goes so far as to accuse school shooting victims of being ‘crisis actors,’ and of course, his pro-Trump fanaticism. However, he frequently goes on rants so bizarre that even the average conspiracy theorist would probably reject them.
Oh, there are stories abound about Jones’ most extreme notions, like when he credited Ron Paul with saving men’s genitals from frying, and when he claimed President Joe Biden was using secret ‘weather weapons’ to cause hurricanes, among others.
It’s when Jones gets going about aliens, though, that everything really goes off the rails. It seems that he believes they’re arriving on Earth to kill off most humans and merge the rest with artificial intelligence, in order to make half-human half-computer worshippers of Satan.

“I declare this July 4th, 2022, to be a declaration of independence against the alien force on this planet today waging war against humans and our biology, and our very future, that is attempting to exterminate the majority of us, and force the minority that’s left to merge with AI computers and become cyborg slaves of Satan.”
Well, it’s hardly the only time that Alex Jones has brought aliens into his rants — for instance, he once appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, where Rogan encouragingly assured Jones, “I believe you,” while Jones explained that aliens ‘seduced’ Germans with psychic connections, apparently resulting (according to Jones) in the Nazi regime.
