Alex Jones

Far-right conspiracy theorist and Infowars founder Alex Jones has a long history of saying outrageous things in order to draw attention. And this week on his radio show — with the deadly coronavirus pandemic raising concerns about safety at food processing plants and integrity of the supply chain — Jones threatened to resort to cannibalism if faced with food shortages.

"I'll admit it: I will eat my neighbors," Jones told listeners. "I'm not letting my kids die."



Jones asserted that although he is stocking up on food as much as possible, he will resort to cannibalism if food shortages become a reality and he ever runs out of food. Jones told listeners, "I'm literally looking at my neighbors now going, 'I'm ready to hang them up and gut them and skin them and chop them up.' And you know what? I'm ready. My daughters are not starving to death. I'll eat my neighbors."

Jones added, "My children are not going hungry. I will eat your ass. And that's why I want the globalists to know: I will eat your ass first."

Twitter users have had a lot to say about Jones' rant. @SaveusfromGOP suggested that as an alternative to cannibalism, Jones "could grow a garden of vegetables" — and @arttavana commented, "Imagine just being this weirdo's neighbor."

@Jcartwit tweeted, "I gather he isn't the most popular guy in the neighborhood right now," while @rann5818 lamented, "There have got to be better ways to make a buck these days than this." And @JHilbert50 wrote, "I'm like seriously concerned for the people that watch this man."

Michael Flynn

Former Trump administration National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has made more than his fair share of disturbing, jaw-dropping remarks-- like telling the former guy he should impose martial law to hold a new election or suggesting a Myanmar-like coup at a QAnon conference in May. But he seemed to reach a new low when he joked about using a newly gifted assault rifle to carry out an assassination in the nation's capital.

"We were trying to come up with a rifle that we thought was appropriate for a general, so we went with an old-school Woodland camouflage...one of our top-quality guns," said Jason Parker, a gun company employee who gifted the weapon to Flynn.

Fox News host Sean Hannity disclosed during his radio show on Friday that he had made peace with a fellow right-wing radio host whose content mill had warned that Hannity's "feverish support of the vaccine" against the novel coronavirus betrayed his conservative audience.
