The Alex Jones thread: Because it's time
QAnon followers and other conservative influencers are calling Dr. Fauci a "deep state" plant:

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/rya...te-clinton

Quote:Right-wing influencers and QAnon supporters are waging an information war against Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and top-ranking member of the White House's Coronavirus Task Force. They are falsely claiming that Fauci is working with Hillary Clinton and the deep state to cause an economic collapse and discredit President Donald Trump.

Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory, a labyrinthine belief system that posits that President Trump is waging a secret war against a global criminal organization, have spent much of the COVID-19 outbreak struggling to fit the disease into their narratives. At first, they theorized the virus was a bioweapon created by former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates. Then, following remarks last month from radio host Rush Limbaugh, a sizable contingent suggested that the virus was actually a deep state hoax meant to damage Trump politically.

In recent days, their baseless speculations have settled on Fauci. QAnon-supporting radio host Bill Mitchell has been the biggest promoter of the latest theory. For weeks, Mitchell has been spinning a conspiracy theory that Fauci is a “Democrat plant" and nicknamed him “Dr. #FearPorn.” Mitchell’s first tweets about Fauci date back to March 3, when Fauci first suggested the closure of schools and businesses.

“Sorry President Trump, but replace this crackpot,” Mitchell tweeted. Several minutes later, Mitchell tweeted about Fauci again, “Have you ever seen the market drop 1000 points AFTER a 50 basis point Fed cut? That's #FearPorn. Thanks Dr. Anthony Fauci.”

Mitchell’s ire against Fauci has seemed to grow over time, as he insists the doctor is spreading fear about the outbreak to hurt the US economy. On March 8, Mitchell tweeted a link to a Fox News article about Fauci, writing, “AM I WRONG THINKING THIS FAUCI GUY IS A BIG DEMOCRAT SPREADING FEAR PORN?”

A week later, Mitchell shared a 2009 NIH interview with Fauci providing an update about the then-outbreak of H1N1 influenza. Mitchell insisted Fauci’s apparently calmer demeanor in the video — which was conducted during the Obama administration — was proof that the doctor was now sowing fear about the coronavirus to discredit Trump.

“You'll notice none of the over-the-top hyperbole - none of the panic inducing rhetoric. Watch for yourselves,” Mitchell tweeted.

....and it just keeps going from there.

Roy Moore has something to say:

https://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/roy-...-assemble/

Quote:Roy Moore, the failed Senate candidate and twice-removed former Alabama chief justice, is telling pastors that it is their “duty” to continue church assemblies in spite of public health officials’ social-distancing guideline, the Alabama Political Reporter noted Wednesday.

“I am writing a letter to pastors on the duty to continue church assemblies, even in the midst of these trying times,” Moore said. “Our faith requires it, our duty demands it, and no law or government can prohibit it.”

On Twitter and Facebook, Moore has declared, “When 10 people can’t assemble in church or business then healthy people are being quarantined, our Constitution & faith in God is under attack, & Tyranny triumphs when fear reigns.”

“Businesses are closed, our economy is destroyed and churches are closed by tyrants who pander fear in the place of faith in God and our U.S. Constitution,” Moore said in another tweet.

Roy Moore is just upset that his access to girls has been interrupted.

I'm waiting for one prominent Republican - just one - to point out on camera that human sacrifice is something idolators do.  Just one Republican to say in plain English that the economy is not his or her god.

We have actual Alex Jones news:

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/alex-jone...9dc19cadf0

Quote:Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist and repeated loser of court battles, was ordered Wednesday to pay more than $20,000 in attorney fees after losing another appeal in a defamation case related to the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He now owes nearly $150,000 in legal fees before he even faces a jury.

The Texas Court of Appeals sided with Sandy Hook father Neil Heslin, who for years has been attacked by conspiracy theorists who falsely claim the school shooting in which 20 children and six adults were killed never happened.

Heslin’s lawsuit accuses Jones and his website, Infowars, of defamation after Jones claimed the parents of the dead children were “crisis actors” who helped stage the shooting. Jones is now being sued by nine family members of people who died in the shooting. 

Jones’ most recent appeal to dismiss Heslin’s lawsuit was found to be “frivolous,” the court ruled Wednesday. Jones was ordered to pay $22,250 in attorney fees.

Jones was also ordered to pay approximately $25,000 in October after a court sanctioned him. And in December, he was ordered to pay $100,000 in legal fees after a Texas judge ruled his defense team “intentionally disregarded” an earlier order to produce witnesses.

Remember in that movie "Goldfinger" when James Bond explains to the eponymous villain that his evil plan will kill a shitload of people, and Goldfinger dismisses the casualties by saying that American motorists kill that many people in two years.

Maybe don't use Bond villain whataboutism, guys!!

I don't always keep tabs on QAnon stuff, but I guess they moved beyond the bleach-drinking cure and now think no one has the coronavirus?

Bill Mitchell has been wondering when his "diarrhea check" is coming in the mail if anyone can help out?

Or maybe he needs his diaper checked? I don't know. I don't want to know.

I don't know about diarrhea, but I see an asshole!

Thankfully, these guys will have their thought immortalized for when they try to backtrack in a few weeks/months. They will forever be known as the stupid garbage people they are. A nice big red "C" tattooed on their foreheads.

So...evil, pure and simple from the eighth dimension then.

More pants-shittery from Limbaugh:

https://www.mediaite.com/radio/limbaugh-...-bed-left/

Quote:Radio kingpin Rush Limbaugh claimed that the media — including The Drudge Report, whom he called out specifically — are exaggerating hospitalization numbers on his radio show Tuesday in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

“One of the things that interests me is the hospitalization numbers,” Limbaugh said. “Because if you look at Drudge, if you look at the drive-by media, you would believe there is not a single hospital bed in this country, right?”

“You have been led to believe that every hospital is overflowing,” the conservative radio host continued. “That dead bodies are in body bags and refrigerated trucks that are being parked off to landfills or whatever. I mean, some of the most incredible reporting I have seen, and it is in New York, it is in Washington D.C., Maryland, the Eastern Seaboard states. There’s just not a hospital bed around, the hospitals are overflowing. If you have to go to a hospital, you may as just well pack it in and die.”

Limbaugh went on to claim that Palm Beach County, where he resides, has only 57 people in the hospital due to the coronavirus. The radio host then began downplaying the outbreak in the state of New York touting it has “field hospitals being built in Central Park and the Mercy Ship that floated in there,” before adding that the media is “clearly trying to create the impression that we don’t have any hospitals.”

He concluded, “So much of this has been politicized, folks, that it’s just impossible anymore to actually find factual truth.”

Christ, if feels like I haven't seen or heard Drudge's name in twenty years. What did he do that pissed Limbaugh off? Outbid him on some piece of offshore real estate?

That's...that's literally the point of striking.
