The Alex Jones Child Porn “Scandal”

Jones4

It was suddenly everywhere, when submitting information to the prosecution Alex Jone’s files contained child porn. He’d sent them the worst kind of filth. Social media, the scared old lady of the Internet, was ablaze with people dropping pearls of wisdom such as “I can believe it” and “Of course”. Because it’s just further evidence that Jones is somehow worse than Hitler.

The Tweet from Hayden. Eloquent as always.

Thing is, we smelled a rat straight away. I’m sure we weren’t the only ones but Hayden linked to the story on Twitter and garnered a response from friend of TW @dronetek Who echoed the beliefs of more than a few people. He posted “WE all know this is a set up, right?”

Thing is, we don’t think it’s a “set up” or at least that isn’t the assumption we leapt to. We leaned more towards the “this was a fuck up” scenario and we’ll stay there until we see anything indicating otherwise. In response to Dronetek Hayden posted the following:

From what I can tell it’s most likely just shit that’s been emailed to infowars rather than solicited and simply wasn’t picked up (can you imagine their volume of mail?). I’m not going to jump to “set up” until “fuck up” can be ruled out. Do I think Jones collects that stuff? Nah

And that’s where we stand. We can only imagine the amount of hate mail and madness that must pour into the Infowars mail box on a daily basis. Among them are going to be e-mails from very bad players and that’s what we think this is.

Do we think it should have been checked and vetted before being sent into the courts? Probably, but that would most likely be a herculean task for the small team. They simply complied with the court order and dumped the data as requested. Fuck up, not set up.

This hasn’t stopped the MSM posting click bait titles almost constantly since this happened and it obviously hasn’t stopped people agreeing with the titles, it’s not like you have to actually read an article to formulate an opinion anyway, right?

You might not like Alex Jones or what he does. Most of us here on TW aren’t fans but we do find his shows amusing for the most part. Some people find them offensive and, as we know, if people’s feelings are hurt these days (including offense by proxy) then the person responsible should be crucified at the alter of the people’s court. Oh, and lose their job, home, family etc.

Be honest, no matter what you thought of Alex Jones did you really ever have him pegged as a paedophile? No, us neither. And this story adds no weight whatsoever to such an idea. Unless you really want it to, that is. And many people clearly do.
