 Alex Jones  :evil4: Is Getting Sued (Again)

Brennan Gilmore is a smart, articulate guy who wants Alex Jones shut up for good. He does not want his case settled. He wants Jones to have to practice ethical journalism or be discredited, or go to jail. Jones gets sued a lot, and his usual response is to settle and issue an apology, which goes largely unnoticed. Not this time.


The lawsuit against Alex Jones, explained

Why a Foreign Service officer is suing Alex Jones for defamation, explained in a podcast.
By Julie Bogenjulie.bogen@vox.com Mar 19, 2018, 6:10pm EDT


When Foreign Service officer Brennan Gilmore learned that there was going to be an alt-right protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, he decided to attend as a counterprotester. What he didn’t realize is that his now-infamous video of a car driving into the crowd of counterprotesters would capture an American tragedy — and set him up as a target for death threats, hate mail, and doxxing.

“I am the center of these conspiracy theories that I’m behind the attacks in Charlottesville,” Gilmore told Today, Explained host Sean Rameswaram. “The general outline of the conspiracy theory is there is a deep state that is trying to overthrow Donald Trump and I am an operative of it. Alex Jones and his conspiracy theory says I was paid $320,000 by George Soros to come to Charlottesville to orchestrate the event, and then to get on mainstream media and lie about what happened — which would undermine Trump’s administration.”

This, of course, is nonsense. There is no deep state, no attempt to overthrow the president, and no ill intent on the part of Gilmore. So Gilmore is fighting back and suing Alex Jones and others for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Learn how this could bring scrutiny to Jones’s notorious persona, and why conspiracy theories are so uniquely difficult to fight, on the latest episode of Today, Explained.

Go to Vox for the audio link. Gilmore is also on NPR today.

I do NOT agree with Vox that "there is no Deep State" I do think Alex Jones is a lying sack of s h i t.




  Same here.

Alex Jones actually harmed the 9/11 truth movement by screaming "inside job", with wide eyes, day after day, instead of discussing the science that would expose the government bullshit story. I think Alex Jones was put there to get out in front of the 9/11 Architects and Engineers truth movement in order to tarnish its reputation so they would be branded as tin foil conspiracy theorists.

Unfortunately for Amercian freedom, it worked. We were headed downhill before 9/11, but AFTER 9/11 our downward path turned into an alpine slope!  :P  :(
