Just when we think Alex Jones has dived as deep as he can into the black pool of batshit crazy, he proves us wrong. Lately, Jones has been flogging his nutty theories about Prince and lying through his teeth about Hillary Clinton. But on his Monday show, Jones went back to a favorite conspiracy theory, that Michelle Obama actually used to be a man until gender reassignment. This time, though, he’s added a bizarre twist.
According to Jones, comedienne Joan Rivers was murdered by the Obamas for joking about the First Lady being transsexual.
Don’t forget, the famous comedienne Joan Rivers said, ‘Of course everyone knows she’s a tranny.’ She’s dead serious, ‘She’s a man.’ Deader than a doornail in a routine operation where basically she had fire poured down her throat and was a fire-breathing goblin. Dead on arrival. Shoot your mouth off, honey, you will die.
I’m sorry, what? “Fire-breathing goblin?” Come again? Joan Rivers died from complications of an endoscopy, specifically anoxic encephalopathy. I realize those words are way too big for Jones but all it means is that Rivers died from a lack of oxygen to her brain which, in turn, caused a cardiac arrest. Odd how the lack of oxygen to Alex Jones’ brain hasn’t caused the same complication in him.
While it is true that Rivers joked about Mrs. Obama being transgender, it was just that: a joke. Rivers knew it and so did Michelle Obama. In fact, the Obamas sent a handwritten note to Joan’s daughter, Melissa Rivers:
I received a letter from the White House. From President Obama. Someone who was often a target of her jokes — as well as Mrs. Obama — I received a handwritten note that said, ‘Not only did she make us laugh, she made us think.’
Hardly the actions of someone who ordered a murder. But, if you’re Alex Jones, it makes no difference. Because there are videos on YouTube with “millions of views” that “prove” what Rivers joked about is actually true. Nice invocation of the Appeal to Popularity logical fallacy, there, Jonesy. However, just because something is believed to be true by a large number of
troglodytes people, does not make it so. May I refer you to the theory of spontaneous generation or the heliocentric solar system? Exactly.
Jones went on to say that Malia and Sasha don’t look like their mother, which is absurd. He also asserted that President Obama was sworn in on the Quran, a lie that has been debunked many, many times. Jones says he “used to laugh at this stuff.” Really? Was that before or after he started bilking gullible paranoids out of their money? Jones topped his rant off with this:
I think it’s all an arranged marriage, it’s all completely fake and it’s this big sick joke because he’s obsessed with transgender, just like some weird cult or something. I think Michelle Obama is a man. I really do. I really do. I believe it.
You know what I really believe? That Barack and Michelle Obama have been assaulted by stupid, racist bullshit like this for 8 years — yes, because it started before he was even elected — and have borne it all with dignity and grace. They never strike back, never belittle those who belittle them. In fact, they personify that line from the Lord’s Prayer: “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” I’m sure they forgive Alex Jones. Which makes them better than I. Forgiving anyone who is so hateful and paranoid just isn’t in me. Then again, I am not Christian like the Obamas.
These two “theories” — that Michelle Obama is transgender and Joan Rivers was murdered by the Obamas because she joked about it — are simply ridiculous. That Alex Jones believes them points to the kind of treatment he deserves. I vote for laughter and derision, who’s with me?
