Alex Jones, the tremendous right-wing present host notorious for his conspiracy theories concerning the Sandy Hook Elementary Faculty shootings, Oklahoma Metropolis bombing, and 9/11, has not too long ago reached a brand new degree of viral fame. This time, though it can’t be harassed sufficient how damaging his extremist ideology is, we won’t assist however chuckle. Jones introduced a flock of llamas to his web site/present, InfoWars.
What’s up with Alex Jones and his llamas?
“Now that I’ve llamas, now that I’ve the key weapon…right here you go my sweetsie,” Jones says, after telling his viewers that he is aware of the reality about all the pieces, from fluoride to Jeffrey Epstein, and that his llamas have been the lacking key element to…perhaps persuading everybody that his conspiracy theories needs to be taken severely? We’re truthfully undecided. The clip that is going viral reveals Jones trying to present a giant llama named Polko a cookie; Polka initially needs nothing to do with Jones and the cookie and Jones has to coax him by telling him there’s “no fluoride” within the deal with.
“Alex Jones introduced in llamas. I can not resist the conspiracy theories,” one Twitter consumer wrote.
One other joked, “They all the time present you offended megaphone Alex Jones. They by no means present you llama caregiver Alex Jones.”
Perhaps the llamas actually do maintain all the facility. “I all the time knew that Llamas had psychic powers. It is their telekinesis that it’s important to look out for!!” One particular person wrote on Twitter.
Most definitely, the llamas have been a part of a publicity stunt to get individuals to start out speaking about Jones and InfoWars once more. Which, apparently, is working. If it’s important to make your present appear extra related by sprinkling your content material with just a few llamas, properly, that certain is a press release. “i am conscious that personally messaging everybody I do know the hyperlink to Alex Jone’s llamas is taking part in proper into his plan to make use of llamas to get everybody’s consideration but it surely’s too hilarious to not ship to individuals so i suppose properly performed alex jones properly performed,” one particular person thoughtfully tweeted.

Since Alex Jones and InfoWars are banned on Twitter and YouTube, it is onerous to know precisely what Alex Jones is considering. In March, Google lastly adopted swimsuit and banned the InfoWars app after Jones began spreading conspiracy theories about COVID-19. By the app, Jones was reportedly incomes $15 million in gross sales from various medication dietary supplements again in 2014. Most not too long ago, Jones was making an attempt to hawk dietary supplements with “nanosilver” which he claimed “protects” individuals from COVID-19 (there is no such thing as a such proof that it does).
The video that lastly led Google to banning InfoWars for good contained nonsensical conspiracy principle discuss New World Order (one other Jones main speaking level) and aliens. “Everyone dies below the New World Order besides perhaps one tenth of 1 % that consider they will merge with machines and have made offers with this interdimensional factor that gave all of them the know-how. You possibly can’t make a cope with these aliens that the Bible tells you about and ever get off the planet,” he mentioned.
Will the llamas assist Jones rebrand himself? Will the political extremist understand his true calling (turning into a llama caretaker) and abandon his mission at InfoWars? It is too quickly to inform, however something is feasible.
