Alex Jones is currently fighting for custody of his three children, and his lawyer is arguing that the jury cannot judge him by his Infowars persona—a batshit crazy conspiracy theorist who’s called for the rape of political opponents and thinks Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are demons, reports Margaret Hartmann.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Jones’s attorney Randall Wilhite had this to say at a pretrial hearing: “He’s playing a character.” “He is a performance artist.”
According to his lawyer, “Alex Jones isn’t a conspiracy theorist who thinks ‘globalist’ elites staged the Boston Marathon bombing, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama reek of sulfur because they are demons — he just plays one one the radio,” explains Hartmann.
A Texas jury will have to decide, over the next two weeks, whether Jones is fit to be a parent. His ex-wife, Kelly Jones, says Jones behaves the same on and off the air and his hateful behavior is a big part of the reason why she’d like to have custody of their 14-year-old son and 12- and 9-year-old daughters who have lived with their father since Kelly and Alex divorced in 2015.
“He’s not a stable person,” Kelly argues. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped.”
