Alex Jones Apologizes For Promoting ‘Pizzagate’

Fire up the troops and then pull the rug out from underneath them.

Isn’t that a strategy that controlled opposition would use to demoralize the troops?

That’s what alex Jones has just done.

Interestingly, leftist Raw Story reports that the 60 Minutes interview with Mike Cernovich on Sunday night (see my earlier post on Cernovich by scrolling down the homepage) included a segment where 60 Minutes tries to debunk #pizzagate.

First, the story.

WBUR

Longtime conspiracy theorist and propagator Alex Jones has apologized to the Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong and its owner James Alefantis for his show’s role in promoting the false “pizzagate” conspiracy theory involving a child sex-abuse ring.

Jones, the host of the radio and web show bearing his name and the owner of the website Infowars, said from a prepared statement that to his knowledge, “neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.”

He continued: “I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees. We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.”

Jones’ apology Friday came the same day a 28-year-old man pleaded guilty to charges related to a December incident when he brought an AR-15 rifle and other weapons into the restaurant and fired shots inside. Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury, N.C., said he drove from his home to the Washington restaurant to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory.

False rumors on the Internet included allegations that a child sex ring was operating out of the restaurant’s nonexistent basement and that it involved Hillary Clinton and her former campaign chairman John Podesta. Employees of Comet have received many threatening phone calls and have been the targets of online harassment and death threats.

The Daily Beast reported that Welch was a Facebook fan of Jones and Infowars, and Welch told The New York Times he had listened to Jones’ radio show.

Multiple times in the statement, Jones says that “many media outlets” were reporting on the theories; it could be seen as an attempt to minimize the role his show played in their promotion.

Despite Jones’ claim that the reason for the apology is because “we think it is the right thing to do,” it may have more to do with the perceived threat of legal action from Alefantis, who wrote to Jones in February asking for several retractions. The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi explains:

“Under Texas law, the Austin-based Jones had to retract or apologize for the stories by Friday — one full month after receiving Alefantis’s letter — to avoid exposing InfoWars to punitive damages in a libel suit.”

It’s rare for Jones to make a public apology. The Infowars website has a correction section. There are only two entries, of which the Comet apology is one.

Infowars describes the mission of Jones and the website as “seeking the truth and exposing the scientifically engineered lies of the globalists and their ultimate goal of enslaving humanity.”

NPR’s David Folkenflik noted other conspiracy theories Jones has discussed:

“Jones has claimed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were an inside job, that the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a hoax, and that President Obama would round up people into concentration camps.”

Jones was not the originator of “pizzagate,” however, which has spread on social media and on sites like Reddit.

Even after its wide debunking by most mainstream media outlets, “pizzagate” continues, as evidenced by the small group of protesters who gathered near the White House on Saturday:

The Hill’s Will Sommer reports that Jones’ apology isn’t enough to sway the hard-core believers:

Social psychology professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University told NPR’s Michel Martin that it’s hard to change someone’s belief once that person accepts a conspiracy theory. “We look for evidence that fits what we already know or what we already believe, and we try to avoid information or evidence that we either disagree with or that we know doesn’t fit with our perspective,” he said. “And if someone comes along and says, here’s the evidence, your natural tendency’s actually to rehearse arguments against that evidence.”

A lawsuit by Alefantis? That seems highly unlikely. It would expose things related to the John Podesta emails that Podesta would not want exposed.

Forget about the idea that #pizzagate has been debunked, as claimed in the article. For something to be debunked, there must be an investigation. There has been no investigation of the bizarre goings on at Comet pizza.

And why hasn’t Alefantis gone after David Seaman, the subject of an earlier post (scroll down on the homepage from this post). Seaman has brutally exposed the Podesta emails to a large audience of his followers.

If anything, Seaman has more street cred than Jones, who is widely seen as controlled opposition. Seaman suffers the same labeling, but his focus in life is almost solely on #pizzagate, unlike Jones who spreads himself across numerous issues.

U.S. Media Falls in Love With Unhinged British Witch Who Wants to Bomb Russia

AMERICA NOW HAS BRITAIN’S LOUISE MENSCH. TAKE HER BACK,PLEASE.

Add the name Louise Mensch to your list of nutty anti-Trump people.

She’s right up there with “He will not divide us” Shia Lebeouf. In the case of Mensch, who’s 45 years old, Donald Trump’s slogan America First is a Nazi slogan being pushed by Russia.

Louise would be just another deranged Trump hater except for her fame and connections.

Mensch is a former member of the British Parliament, a rising political star in Britain who resigned her position in 2012. Her explanation was that she wanted to move to New York to be with her husband and family.

She’s also the former publisher of the anti-Trump conservative news site Heat Street, which was funded by Rupert Murdoch. That site gave her a platform for her views, which float around from one thing to next, often very bizarre and most likely related to some sort of mental issues she’s having, possibly related to prior hard drug use. Wikipedia offers a look at her ups and downs, which are many.

Excerpt from Russia Insider

Editor’s Note: This is a comprehensive and delightful unpacking of former Tory MP and current psychopath Louise Mensch and her insatiable appetite for bombing Russia/blaming Putin for everything. We analyzed her famous tweets in an article that you can read here.

UPDATE: PLEASE READ OUR FOLLOW-UP REPORT: Lonely Women on Twitter Take Turns Sniffing Louise Mensch’s Underwear

For some time, certain critics have been suggesting that the mainstream press gives a little too much credence to dubious conspiracy theories about Russia, theories which many Democrats have embraced out of their desire to undermine Donald Trump. Liberal commentators like Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann are beginning to sound a bit like Glenn Beck during the peak of the chalkboard-years. Any claim about nefarious doings by Vladimir Putin—for instance, that Russia hacked Vermont’s electric grid, or that the Naked Capitalism blog is Russian state propaganda—is spread widely by pundits without particular regard for the actual substantiating evidence.

Of course, one may disagree with this. One may believe that the media’s treatment of the Russia-Trump nexus has been sober and reasonable. But a new data point suggests otherwise: the New York Times recently published a piece on Russian hacking by Louise Mensch. And a world where the Paper of Record publishes Mensch is not a world with a sane public conversation about Russia.

Mensch is a British former Conservative MP and chick-lit author who these days spends most of her time on Twitter issuing frenzied denunciations of imagined armies of online “Putinbots.” She is—and this is no overstatement—one of the least credible people on the internet.

Let’s be clear: with Mensch, we are not talking about someone who merely “takes a hard line” on the Russia question. Mensch is legitimately paranoid and deluded. She sincerely believes that Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Vladimir Putin, that Russia is secretly operating the public wifi networks in her neighborhood, and that the 15-year-old-girl whom Anthony Weiner sexted was in reality a hacker on the Kremlin payroll. (The Daily Mail, of all places, offered a thorough debunking.) When a journalist from the London Times visited Mensch, he found her manically babbling about a “giant web” of Russia connections invisible to anyone else, her ADHD having given her a “temporary superpower.” Mensch told the reporter that a mobile florist in her neighborhood could in fact be a Russian operation dispatched to intercept her communications, an assertion that sounded like a joke but appeared to be serious. Even ex-intelligence officer Malcolm Nance, a strong believer in the Trump-Putin connection and author of The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election, has said Mensch is “batshit crazy” and a “fruit loop.” Mensch’s children, too, seem to think she is off her gourd. As she confessed: “These days when anything goes wrong in our house, one of my kids will say: ‘Is it the Russians?’ It’s a standing joke. ‘Pizza went cold. Is it the Russians?’”

Mensch’s Russia commentary is not limited to speculations on the country’s secret misdeeds. Far more worryingly, she actively encourages the United States to start an armed conflict. In December, she tweeted: “What Russia has done to America is an act of war… I want precision bombing raids. Mass cyber war. Bank hacks… Vladimir Putin has committed an act of war… Obama must strike.” Mensch literally wants bombs to be dropped on the world’s second most heavily armed nuclear power, without any consideration for what this might mean. By publishing Mensch, then, the New York Times has established as a legitimate political commentator someone who thinks the florists on the Upper West Side are monitoring her internet, and is actively using Twitter to encourage the United States to start World War III.

Wow! Just wow!

Most of us here are aware of how nonsensical the Trump is a Russian puppet meme is. Keep an eye on Louise Mensch because her brand of fake news journalism is the kind that could get the world incinerated by a nuclear war.

Her Friday night appearance on the Bill Maher show offers an opportunity to see her defense of Islam in the wake of the London terror attack last week.

David Seaman Debunks the Debunking of #pizzagate

Youtube title: Alex Jones’ APOLOGY & Media’s Absurd Pro-Pedo Meltdown

I recollect our conversation about David Seaman a couple of weeks ago. Yes, there are questions about HIM, but when he does good work, I’m going to post it here.

Yesterday, there was a #pizzagate demonstration at the White House. We can’t let this monstrous conspiracy die. As long as Seaman keeps preaching that it’s real and needs to be investigated, I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

In the above video, Seaman talks about the (((media’s))) attacks on him, as well as the evidence that Comet Pizza is at the center of a horrific pedophile ring focused on drugging and raping young children.

Here are a couple of Tweets designed to help start an official investigation into #pizzagate.

There’s more. In 2013 NBC News reported that Hillary Clinton quashed an investigation into pedophile rings within the State Department.

Published on Mar 25, 2017

Flashback to June 11th, 2013 when NBC was reporting real news… Hillary Clinton was never a progressive liberal, she was never a feminist, she never cared about anyone but herself.

Stunning Evidence that the Left has Won It’s War on White Males

The source article for this post covers familiar statistical ground. On March 24, this Saboteur365 post went over the new analysis of rising American white mortality rates.

Here a mainstream conservative site presents those facts then brings up the issue of anti-white male racism. The fact that American Thinker is willing to speak to white genocide offers evidence that we are winning the war to wake people up. The left’s blatant hatred of whites makes it easier for even normally namby-pamby conservatives to write about white genocide. So does the rising mortality rate for whites.

Excerpt from American Thinker

For at least four decades, white males have been under continuous assault as bearers of “white privilege” and beneficiaries of sexism. Special preferences and privileges have been granted to other groups, but that is the least of it. More importantly, the very basis of the psychological self-worth of white males have been under attack. White males are frequently instructed by authority figures in education and the media that they are responsible for most of the evils of the modern world, that the achievements of Euro-American civilization are a net loss for humanity, stained by exploitation, racism, unfairness, and every other collective evil the progressive mind can manufacture.

Some white males are relatively unscathed by the psychological warfare, but others are more vulnerable. Those who have educational, financial, or employment achievements that have rewarded their efforts may be able to keep going as productive members of society, their self-esteem resting on tangible fruits of their work and social position. But other white males, especially those who work with their hands and have been seeing job opportunities contract or disappear, have been losing the basis for a robust sense of self-worth as their job opportunities disappear.

We now have statistical evidence that political correctness kills.

A friend comments:

This is terribly troubling. How all this has fallen outside the focus of our political debate is astonishing. This would seem to be at least as important as the issues of the day including which bathroom you can use, police abuse and who can be legally married to whom. It’s easy to understand why these people would resent the attention being paid to these issues and to the rights of the illegal immigrants.

Indeed.

Eight years of Obama in the White House pushed the white middle class and working class further down while glorifying Muslims, Chicanos, and other nonwhite illegal immigrants.

It’s not at all clear to this writer that such a broken system can ever be fixed without spilling the blood of the tyrants. Certainly, President Donald Trump should be given every chance, but in the meantime white men should be practicing their sabotage and other military skills. We still have the Second Amendment, which is more than European and Australian whites have.
