[edit] UFOs & Aliens

He says he believes that the Illuminati contacts Aliens through DMT. Is that enough to put him in UFOlogy— Unsigned, by: Jakester499 / talk / contribs

[edit] In a nutshell

I included these videos. It's hard to understand the crazy of Alex Jones without watching some of his videos. I think that these three perfectly summarize Jones, without giving him any traffic.

I frankly don't see why they shouldn't be included in the rest of the article. They're a bit light-hearted and they continue the trend of peppering each section with hilarious insanity. FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 03:45, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, videos do good justice.—127.0.0.1 (talk) 04:09, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Naah guys, let's not stick in embedded meme vids. C'mon team. We can include them in any way that isn't embedded though. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 04:18, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
1 meme video for 2 serious ones should be fine. The whole article is 25% "Jones is stupid" jokes anyway. :P FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 04:20, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

You don't wanna see me kissing fuzzies, ingratiating fuzzies, in bed with a fuzzy. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:32, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I added 3 vids back in. I moved the Goblins one to the end. αδελφός ΓυζζγςατΡοτατο (talk/stalk) 17:14, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, seems fine actually. Th hug.gif Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:17, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
I feel ashamed I ever subscribed to his youtube channel --86.20.195.10 (talk) 11:00, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Atleast you didn't use to send the guy money, like me. Facepalm.png Oh well — my truther-to-skeptic deconversion story is atleast pretty spicy. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:40, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
OK, you've been deconverted, but have you been to a devivalWikipedia's W.svg 😉? I have! Bongolian (talk) 01:56, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Wow, how was it? Never knew that much about the Church of the SubGenius, myself (but I'd love to know more). Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:03, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Way back when, I went to a lot of San Francisco underground scene events. A lot of these events had people who were SubGenii, including a couple of old timers, namely Puzzling Evidence (amateur videographer) and Dr. Hal / Dr. Howland Owl. These two also did a late night radio show, also called Puzzling Evidence. Anyway from what I can remember, the Devival featured SubGenius rants interspersed with the odd & sometimes risque entertainment, and impromptu pot smoking in the lobby. I think Ivan Stang showed up but he didn't say much. One of the more memorable statements was to the effect that if anyone ever got to the point of actually believing the SubGenius schtick, that the Church would deprogram you itself. — Unsigned, by: Bongolian / talk / contribs
I've been a card carrying SubG since the nineties or so. There were a couple of Devivals in Baltimore in 2007-2008; at them, I finally got to meet Rev. Stang and Rev. Susie the Floozy, among others, in person, after many years of enjoying their various media. Nice people and a great time. For a newcomer I recommend checking out their various books, and the archives of Hour of Slack here, and here. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 02:52, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Child custody

Jones is currently involved in a child custody case with his ex-wife, Kelly. Alex's lawyer claims that he's just a performance artist and shouldn't be judged by his on-air persona. Kelly claimed that Alex is unstable, and that "I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress." (i.e., Rep. Adam Schiff)

The judge has approved at least some Infowars material as evidence for the case, including a clip that showed Alex grooming his son to be his successor on the show. [1] Bongolian (talk) 18:37, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Apparently Alex Jones is involved in another lawsuit with Chobani Yogurt over a false allegations of rape: *https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/nation-now/2017/04/25/chobani-sues-infowars-alex-jones-over-migrant-rapists-tuberculosis-claims/100875706/

Update:
Now apparently news outlets are saying that Alex Jones may have been in a sex scandal with 150 women. This is a case where We need a certain threshold acceptable in court where 150 women can confirm that this scandal is true. — Unsigned, by: 130.86.96.188 / talk / contribs

We'll see how this all plays out. Could someone check Roger Stone's twitter and see if he's defending Alex? Not that correlation implies causation, of course — I'm just reminded of how Stone has a history of rushing to defend people who turn out to be guilty. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:02, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Alex Jones was not the only person writing Chobani's Allegations. https://mediamatters.org/blog/2017/04/26/it-wasnt-just-alex-jones-smears-against-chobani-were-also-driven-fake-news-and-alt-right/216175

Wow at what point does the Chobani issue becomes its own rational wiki page. 130.86.96.188 (talk) 16:24, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Alex Jones issues a retraction of the Chobani lawsuit.

[edit] Real Alex Jones Quote

[My kids] are very proud of the comedy memes that I appear in; online I'm a #1 meme.

Is it time for a meme section? FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 02:14, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

I'm actually starting to think we should have a separate fun page on the guy. For his memes. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:03, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Agreed.—127.0.0.1 (talk) 19:05, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
