Alex Jones, 2013: “I Clearly Believe, From The Evidence, Children Were Really Killed In Sandy Hook, And It’s A Real Tragedy.”

NBC and Megan Kelly are in foaming hot water over Kelly’s upcoming interview with anti-globalist, populist talk show host Alex Jones. Jones pre-empted Kelly’s piece by publishing his own recording of the interview, here. A close friend of mine knows the father of one of the children killed at Sandy Hook, and told me he met the boy once. Another friend of mine has posted on FB that he knows another family who lost a child, but didn’t respond to a request I sent that he put me in touch with the family. It is understandable that grieving parents are simply unable to summon the strength to “prove” that their children have been killed, so the situation persists: People on the internet persist in spreading “conspiracy” theories that run the gamut, all the way out to saying no children were killed, and that the entire event was staged as a false flag to condition to public to surrender the right to bear arms.

Story on Sandy Hook families outrage over Megan Kelly’s Alex Jones interview here. 

Mainstream media outlets continue to report that Alex Jones thinks Sandy Hook “was a hoax,” and that no children were killed. This, a simple internet search reveals, is not true.

Jones, apparently, interviewed people on all sides of the conspiracy spectrum. In 2013, in the video posted below, he said:

“I clearly believe from the evidence, children were really killed in Sandy Hook, and it’s a real tragedy. But the fact that they’re having people script things and that answers are being scripted is incontrovertible. We’ll get to some of that evidence right now..”

The issues raised by Jones in the video below broach the way bigger, messier issue of primarily CNN having been caught staging, faking, and manipulating news, including pretending to be places they were not. That’s the conversation America is getting ready to have now, thanks to Alex Jones/Megyn Kelly hysteria.

My heart aches for the families, and my primary intention with this post is to prove:

A: Alex Jones believes children were killed at Sandy Hook and B: Alex Jones believes CNN is a deep state organ that literally fakes news. These questions should not be conflated to the point where the entire discussion is rendered “toxic,” “hateful,” and taboo. Instead, let’s get everything up to the surface, out in the open.

UPDATE: In 2014, Alex Jones seemed to contradict or expand on the 2013 quote above (which is normal, to alternate position, as new information comes in.) Were no homicides registered in Sandy Hook in 2012? Really?

Camille Paglia, In Searing Interview, Eviscerates Elite Democrats, Praises Trump As A “Builder,” Says Sex Change is ‘Impossible’ and Calls Global Warming “A Sentimental Myth Unsupported By Evidence.”

And–she is a lifelong registered Democrat. I interviewed Paglia in 1990, in a two part interview in SPIN Magazine, and remain an admirer of her wild, caustic mind, passion for history, and serious sense of humor.

To wit:

“Of course this rousing speech (with its can-do World War Two spirit) got scant coverage in the mainstream media. Drunk with words, spin, and snark, middle-class journalists can’t be bothered to notice the complex physical constructions that make modern civilization possible. The laborers who build and maintain these marvels are recognized only if they can be shoehorned into victim status. But if they dare to think for themselves and vote differently from their liberal overlords, they are branded as rubes and pariahs.

In summary: to have any hope of retaking the White House, Democrats must get off their high horse, lose the rabid rhetoric, and reorient themselves toward practical reality and the free country they are damned lucky to live in.”

 

“There seems to be a huge conceptual gap between Trump and his most implacable critics on the left. Many highly educated, upper-middle-class Democrats regard themselves as exemplars of “compassion” (which they have elevated into a supreme political principle) and yet they routinely assail Trump voters as ignorant, callous hate-mongers. These elite Democrats occupy an amorphous meta-realm of subjective emotion, theoretical abstractions, and refined language. But Trump is by trade a builder who deals in the tangible, obdurate, objective world of physical materials, geometry, and construction projects, where communication often reverts to the brusque, coarse, high-impact level of pre-modern working-class life, whose daily locus was the barnyard. It’s no accident that bourgeois Victorians of the industrial era tried to purge “barnyard language” out of English.”

What They Said: Alfieri

He dies in her arms, and Beatrice covers him with her body.

Alfieri, who is in the crowd, turns out to the audience. The lights have gone down, leaving him in a glow, while behind him the dull prayers of the people and the keening of the women continue.

 

Alfieri: Most of the time now we settle for half and I like it better. But the truth is holy, and even as I know how wrong he was, and his death useless, I tremble, for I confess that something perversely pure calls to me from his memory – not purely good, but himself purely, for he allowed himself to be wholly known and for that I think I will love him more than all my sensible clients. And yet, it is better to settle for half, it must be! And so I mourn him – I admit it – with a certain . . . alarm.

 

Curtain.
