Alex Jones Records Paranoid Rant Before Leaving New York
Americans had plenty to say after viewing syndicated radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ manic display Monday on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.” And even after calling Morgan a “hatchet man of the New World Order,” proclaiming “1776 will commence again,” and challenging Morgan to a boxing match—among other absurdities—Jones had more to say.
Before leaving New York for Austin, Texas, Jones recorded a 12-minute paranoid rant asking his fans to pray for his safety, claiming he was being followed by undercover New York police detectives.
If something happens to us, we’re killed by crackheads, it was the NYPD or mafia they hired,” Jones said.
The insanity continued when Jones took to the airwaves Tuesday and not only praised his CNN appearance but also compared CNN’s offices to Hitler’s bunker.
When I was in CNN a decade ago, it was glistening. (Now) it looks like Hitler’s bunker… torn-up carpet, feces all over the wall and on the floor in the bathroom. It’s rotting.”
Folks, I’ve been in those exact rooms,” Jones said. “It literally looked like a gas station bathroom in the worst part of town. It was rotting and those people were in hell. It’s a skeleton of what it was, it’s a globalist operation and they’re nothing.”
Jones gave a much better critique of his own performance, however, further demonstrating how out-of-touch he is with reality.
I give myself about an A,” he said on his radio program,“ The Alex Jones Show.” “The consensus is in. I would say 95 percent of people thought I just told it like it was, slammed him in the face… I’m proud of the job I did.”
Following Morgan’s interview with Jones, the White House press office responded to questions regarding the online petition Jones initiated requesting Morgan’s deportation. The petition, which has been signed by more than 105,000 times, demands Morgan be deported for his “hostile attack against the US Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment.”
The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one,” the press office stated. “In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.”
Jones had his own response to the White House, via Twitter:
White House lies, claims first amendment applies to non-citizens like Piers 'turn your guns in' Morgan – http://t.co/J1XQKd8F

And the madness continues.
