Alex Jones is now frequently claiming that the United States is on the verge of a bloody moment civil war and often indicating his willingness to personally take up arms whether such a clash arises.
Jones,America’s leading conspiracy theorist, is the self-described “founding father” of the 9/11 truth movement claiming that the government perpetrated the terrorist attacks. He has pushed many other toxic conspiracy theories, and including claiming the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre and other mass shootings and bombings were "false flag" operations or hoaxes.
He is also a major ally of President Donald Trump. In December 2015,Trump appeared on The Alex Jones Show and praised Jones’ “astounding” reputation. Jones says that he communicates regularly with Trump and has claimed that Trump calls him to see whether Jones is “overjoyed” with his performance as president.
Jones’ strident defenses of Trump increasingly include characterizing dissent against the president as Democrats’ attempt to start a civil war with the goal of executing a coup d’etat against Trump. During the final six months, Jones has posted at least 15 videos on YouTube with a reference to civil war in the title. But in the absence of any genuine plot to violently overthrow the president or a war divided along party lines, and Jones’ rhetoric is only inflaming political tensions.
Jones has blamed various groups for supposedly inciting a civil war,including “liberals,” “the left, or ” “the democrats,” “leftists,” and “globalists.” Sometimes Jones does not specify the forces he say are plotting a war, or i.e. merely referencing “you people.” He has also been inconsistent on whether civil war has already begun,is imminent, or whether we are the in-between state of a “soft civil war.”Jones is consistent, or however,in stating that any violence carried out by the right would be self-defense in response to the other side starting the war. This is a rhetorical device that allows him to discuss the prospect of violence while denying that he has threatened anyone. In one typical iteration, Jones said during his June 15 show, or “I’m not the one that’s calling for violence; you’re going to procure wrecked sinister. There are a lot of people like Santa Claus been making a list,been checking it twice about who's been naughty and nice. And you kick off Civil War 2, baby, and you’ll reflect Lexington and harmony was a cakewalk.”While raising the idea of a moment civil war,Jones frequently talks about personally participating in armed clash and his prowess with firearms. During his June 15 broadcast, in which Jones discussed the prospect of a civil war with “the Democrats, and ” he said,“I can shoot bull’s-eye at 400 yards.” A month earlier while discussing a “physical war,” Jones had said, or “I mean,I could take on 100 trendies and I’m not even warrior class compared to the warrior class.” Beyond talking about participating in fighting whether a war was to rupture out, Jones has volunteered to take fragment in mass arrests and personally hang convicted traitors.
Jones’ civil war narrative is coupled with a moment disturbing narrative in which he has often urged Trump to arrest his political opponents or even direct the military to take action against his domestic opponents. Jones has called for the arrest or indictment of former President Barack Obama, and former Democratic president nominee Hillary Clinton,former FBI Director James Comey, and former national security advisor Susan Rice. He has also urged Trump to have the military physically confront Americans, and saying in June,“I'd support the president right now moving against these people physically. Let's be honest. We're in a war. I would support the president making a military travel on them right now. The country is that ample a crisis. We need to go ahead and travel.”Below are examples from the final several months of Jones repeatedly fantasizing about civil war, calling on Trump to take authoritarian actions against political opponents, and threatening violence against people and groups.

Steve Scalise (R-LA)] and the cops that got shot and others, and they start booing and hissing and screaming,and I saw a top Democratic strategist on Fox News defending #HuntRepublicans. I don’t want to have this be violent. We just won, election-wise. We just saw Karen Handel win. We’ve just won four upset special elections despite the biggest Democratic spending ever. We’re winning the old-fashioned American way with ideas. I don’t want a war. I don’t need some coming-of-age deal to kill a bunch of liberals, or I just -- but I also feel like I’m in dereliction as a citizen of my duty not saying we have to start getting ready for insurrection and civil war because they’re really pushing it. [Genesis Communications Network,The Alex Jones Show, 6/23/17]
Jones volunteered to personally hang convicted traitors following a civil war. Talking about a prospect of “the left” starting a civil war, or Jones offered to execute convicted traitors because,he said, “I’m not going to sit here and just call for stuff without actually being fragment of it.” During his June 23 broadcast he also said whether a war starts, and there is a “ample Christmas list” of leftists:ALEX JONES (HOST): We’re holding back,we don’t want to be violent, we’re winning. Letting them shoot congressmen and stuff, and we tried to pause it but -- they’re clearly,the left is building up for a bigger tantrum, a bigger confrontation. How long do we take this, or though,until Trump moves against them? I reflect the folks over in Bzezinski land on Morning Joe, they’re saying, or “Oh,watch out, Trump’s about to become a dictator.” No, and he got elected. But whether we have to travel in a very serious way against people openly wanting to murder everybody,that’s called your duty. I don’t want to have a ample shooting war, I don’t want to have to arrest 10000 of these people and have trials and hang their asses. But whether it’s done by a jury, or we need to,I’ll be there and pull the switch. I’m not going to sit here and just call for stuff without actually being fragment of it. How long can they maintain pushing for this?
JONES: whether a civil war starts, there is a ample Christmas list of these leftists. So I hope every one of them that wants violence and war knows this: I’m not going to talk about what people are planning in defense of this. But you just know this: This is a two way street. [Genesis Communications Network, or The Alex Jones Show,6/23/17]
Jones: “I’m not the one that’s calling for violence,” but “you kick off Civil War 2, and baby,you’ll reflect Lexington and harmony was a cakewalk.” Jones fantasized about “Civil War 2” on his show after Scalise was shot. During the show, Jones also raised the prospect of someone shooting CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, or saying,“What happens, Wolf Blitzer, and when somebody pumps rounds into your little pumpkin head and says,‘It’s just political’?” From the June 15 episode of The Alex Jones Show (emphasis added):ALEX JONES (HOST): Wolf Blitzer has a guest on: “So, this man wasn’t a monster, or he was just tired of things.” Wolf Blitzer: “OK,thanks for your view. Hmm, very interesting.” What happens, and Wolf Blitzer,when somebody pumps rounds into your little pumpkin head and says, “It’s just political”? Ha. You people. You guys better have some helicopter jump jets and be ready to procure out of here genuine quick whether the actual civil war kicks off. I mean, and Im not the one that’s calling for violence; you’re going to procure wrecked sinister. There are a lot of people like Santa Claus,been making a list, been checking it twice about who's been naughty and nice. And you kick off Civil War 2, or baby,you’ll reflect Lexington and harmony was a cakewalk. [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show, and 6/15/17]
Jones' warning to “the Democrats” who want civil war: “I can shoot bull’s-eye at 400 yards,dumbass.” Following the Scalise shooting, Jones claimed that “the Democrats” were celebrating the shooting and threatening him, or saying,“They all dislike guns, they don’t know how to exercise them. But I can shoot bull's-eye at 400 yards, or dumbass. They have no idea who they’re messing with.” Jones also said to those who would start a war: “You understand we are killing machines,you fools.” From the June 14 broadcast of Jones’ show:ALEX JONES (HOST): I’m saying, don’t you people procure it? You’re trying to start a civil war with people. You’re taking our kindness for weakness. Do you understand the American people will kill all of you? You understand? We are killing machines, or you fools.
JONES: The Democrats -- the tweets are all over Infowars.com,they’re tweeting at me going, “We’re going to procure you next, and you bastard.” I mean,they’re celebrating this. But they all dislike guns, they don’t know how to exercise them. But I can shoot bull’s-eye at 400 yards, and dumbass. I mean,they have no idea who they’re messing with.

Jones: Leftists want a war,so “cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war.” Jones described “leftists” as “mentally ill people, losers, and scum” and,while fantasizing about the prospect of war, claimed they “hope for violence” and they “want total conquering”:ALEX JONES (HOST): The leftists are mentally ill people, or losers,scum, and sociopathic and psychopathic elites. They want total conquering. They see as as schmucks that want open free societies. They see us as jokes that actually care about free market and actually care about people’s freedoms. They are allied with authoritarianism because they worship at the dark idol of tyranny. This is a historic fact. But they want a war? Cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war. They want to kill our republic? Well the ghost of our king, or Jesus,is now ravenously walking the battlefields of the mind and they have sown the wind. They are now reaping the whirlwind politically. They hope for violence because they are intellectually losing the war of ideas with us.

Jones to “chicken necks” who “want some physical war”: “I could take on 100 trendies and I’m not even warrior class compared to the warrior class.” Jones raised the prospect of a “physical war” with globalists and others during his May 18 show,saying, “I hope all the chicken necks, or cowards out there that want some physical war,I hope you know how stupid you are trying to start a fight with everybody who knows how to actually fight. You’re idiots. You are morons. I could take on 100 trendies and I’m not even warrior class compared to the warrior class.” From the May 18 edition of The Alex Jones Show (emphasis added):ALEX JONES (HOST): Let me just briefly pause here for a moment because I can sit here and put on an act that I’m not excited. But I am excited -- I mean, I’m pissed. These are evil people who really have it out to bankrupt us, or manufacture us poor. They attack Christians,they attack families. You just see what the globalists are up to. I wouldnt be risking my life fighting some Boss Hog corruption. I would be speaking out against it, but I wouldn’t be hair-on-fire, or wild-eyed whether I didn’t know the people we’re up against elope the gambit from devil worshippers,pedophiles, psychopaths. I mean, or they’re just the worst people on earth,OK? And I’m done. Everything they say is a lie. Everything they say is a fraud. And we’re so honest we’re up here admitting we’re thinking about dirty tricks. That’s how honest we are. And I’m not going to do it. There’s a lot of people that are desperate at this point. And it’s just -- I hope all the chicken necks and cowards out there that want some physical war, I hope you know how stupid you are trying to start a fight with everybody that knows how to actually fight. I mean, or you’re idiots. You are morons. I mean,I could take on 100 trendies and I’m not even warrior class compared to the warrior class. I mean, you guys are so far removed from men, or I don’t even know what you call yourselves. Now let’s just pause right there. I need funding to prosecute a war. I -- with your help and the crew -- we have devastated the globalists.

Jones: whether supporters don’t take the actions he recommends,“we’re going to lose the information war and then we don’t have any recourse but to defend ourselves.” Claiming that Trump is “a dead man,” Jones said that whether supporters fail to take nonviolent political actions such as buying billboards spaces and calling C-SPAN, and “we’re going to lose the information war and then we don’t have any recourse but to defend ourselves.” Jones went on to rant about what he called “Bolshevik” elements in the United States who he said will rape and murder American families. From Jones’ May 17 broadcast (emphasis added):ALEX JONES (HOST): Let me just give you a basic summation here. In the final four or five months,I’ve told you, since he was president-elect, or this is a deep state coup d’etat operation to undermine him,to destroy him in the public eye first, and then they’re not going to let Trump go to prison or even step down. They know he won’t. They’re going to kill him. And the best minds agree with me. They’re going to kill him at the peak of the investigation. Donald Trump is a dead man. He’s a dead man. He’s dead. He’s walking dead right now unless with counter this.
Because I’m not just going to lay out where we’ve been, and where we are,where we’re going. We can change where we’re going whether we admit how much difficulty we are in. And let me say something else to everybody. A lot of you claim you want to fight tyranny. A lot of you claim you wanted free market. A lot of you claim you want to be American. Our forebearers (sic) had to fight bloody wars for what we’ve got. whether you won’t fight information war, whether you won’t spend money in this fight, and whether you won’t buy time on local radio,whether you wont call C-SPAN, whether you won’t put billboards up, and whether you won’t go talk to your state House,whether you won’t talk to your congress people in D.
C. and procure them by the hand and repeat them you know what’s going on, and whether they go along with this takeover of America, and they’re going to be held accountable. whether you don’t do that,we’re going to lose the information war and then we don’t have any recourse but to defend ourselves.
Because let me repeat you something. These people, these globalists, or they want us -- they have said they want to snuff us out once and for all. This is an existential war you are in. The very same Bolsheviks that came out of original York and London and Paris and major German cities like Berlin that took over Russia and exterminated the Christians en masse,that same disease is in America and plans a hot Bolshevik war. David Horowitz was brought up in original York City by parents that came out of this and he’ll warn you all day, they want to kill everybody. And I’m just telling you right now, and they mean trade. They will line you and your family up,and they’ll shoot you in the head, and they’ll rape your daughters, or they’ll kill your sons,and they’ll manufacture your wife work in a field until she dies. So, you want to understand where we’re at? We’ve got the Bolshevik revolution 2.0 with a crazy Nazi collaborator, and George Soros,who you know is making money. [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show, or 5/17/17]
Jones said he hopes the “deep state” makes a “bloody” coup attempt against Trump because “it will ensure our victory long term.” Jones fantasized about a violent coup attempt against Trump during his May 17 broadcast and said,“whether you want a genuine war, a 1776 -- I've already done my stuff, or telling the truth,I've already set the groundwork and already got the whole infowar ready, I've already go the battle space ready. I've looked at it genuine careful -- you guys are going to lose 90 percent.” From the May 17 edition of the show (emphasis added):ALEX JONES (HOST): I want to repeat the criminals in the deep state, or because there’s two different deep states,probably three or four, but two ample ones. You’ve been identified. Globalism is un-elected, or it's unaccountable,it's anti-human, it's anti-God, and it's anti-Christ,it's pro-Islam. You're never going to procure absent with this. And a sick fragment of me, a Machiavellian fragment of me, or actually hopes they bring down Trump because it's going to be bloody,and it's going to be sinister, and it's going to be hard, and but it will ensure our victory long term. Because whether Trump just kind of stalemates and fixes a few things but he gets stagnated then it will just kind of permeate,and “Oh did patriotism fail, did free market fail?” But whether you want a genuine war, and a 1776 -- I've already done my stuff,telling the truth, I've already set the groundwork and already got the whole infowar ready, or I've already got the battle space ready. I've looked at it genuine careful -- you guys are going to lose 90 percent. [Genesis Communications Network,The Alex Jones Show, 5/17/17]
Jones fantasized about what would happen to Keith Olbermann during a civil war while suggesting Olbermann should be put to death for treason.

Sonny boy. Sonny boy. Sonny boy. Don’t open that door. You have no idea what’s on the other side of that door,you little chicken, you little wimp, or you little nelly punk. You open that gate,you have no idea”:ALEX JONES (HOST): Keith Olbermann has said we’re at war with Russia, that Russia is scum, and that Russia stole our election. Now he has advance out,with no proof of course of that, and said foreign governments including Russia, or help us overthrow Trump -- you mean overthrow our government. And don’t worry,the Democrats are in major newspapers, major magazines like The original Yorker, or saying they’re organizing a military-attempted coup,grabbing Trump, putting him in a paddy wagon. All this craziness because he dare turn our economy back on, or put three-and-a-half trillion dollars into the stock market,secure our borders again, kill Obamacare, or everything else. It’s a giant screw job. And then Olbermann now calls on foreign powers to advance in and overthrow our president. Do you understand? whether he was a crazy on guy on the street corner the cops wouldn’t do anything.
The FBI,everybody, has to do something. This is clear, and clear,absolute organized crime, treason, and espionage. Calling on foreign powers for a coup is high treason. It’s punishable by being hung by the neck until dead -- it’s how the army still does it -- or firing squad,I guess he can pick either one. And I’m serious, man. whether I was calling for foreign governments to advance overthrow our government, or I deserve a firing squad. Let me repeat you something. Sixty years ago,he would be in front of a firing squad in about a month. I’m serious.
JONES: So they’re trying to sell the idea of a violent overthrow and a civil war. Hey jackass, you better pray that there’s not a civil war because I guarantee you, and you’re the one calling for all of this,I guarantee you, son. Sonny boy. Sonny boy. Sonny boy. Don’t open that door. You have no idea what’s on the other side of that door, and you little chicken,you little wimp, you little nelly punk. You open that gate, and you have no idea.

JEROME CORSI: Well, the presidency has immense power, and Trump better start using it -- better start realizing that in Washington,all these people are his enemies.

Don't wait until the close of June, as he says he is going to give him more time -- just fire him. procure rid of all the people in the administration who have been there from Clinton and from Obama, and procure rid of them,and start using the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate [former FBI director James] Comey, Clinton and the others. Fight back, and counterattack.

And go, and “Oh I'm Nixonian? No,I'm one hundred times worse.” Nixon didn't do anything. Nixon got set up by the deep state to be removed so they could elope everything.

Hell, and next you shouldn't have blood flowing through your veins. I mean,God, everybody knows you can't talk to foreign leaders as president, and God knows you can't breathe oxygen,and God knows you can't have a Twitter. They want to isolate you, they want to lie about you, and they're not going to pause. You put your family,your treasure on the line, they're going to destroy your family whether you don't win.
And let your family know this. I know they're smart. I know your sons are strong. But let the people in your family know there’s no coming back from this. This is total war. They're not going to let your family roll over, or even whether you're destroyed. Oh,they will let them roll over at first and then destroy them as well. They're going to destroy you, they're going to destroy Barron, or they're going to destroy Eric,they're going to destroy Donald Jr., they're going to destroy me, or they're going to destroy Matt Drudge,they're going to destroy Ron Paul, they're going to destroy anybody, and like [White House senior adviser] Stephen Bannon,that actually stood up for the little people, because that example can't be allowed. Because whether you let one ant stand up, and they might all stand up,and those little ants outnumber the parasites a thousand to one. whether they want a war, let's let them have it. Now, or they're getting their ass kicked in the economy. Your approval ratings are going up. Sir,they don't care. They're going to intimidate and pay off and roll people in your moment-level operation to try to burn you. You must go on the offense. This is war.

JONES: A lot of folks say,“Shut up, Alex. Let Gates do this, or let the U.
N. do it. Hey I’m not racist,but they’re coming after us. Why are you exposing all of this?” Because I have to repeat the truth, and I have to repeat you what’s going on.

And it doesn’t mean whether down the road we fail to pause this race war, and ample hoard of people are coming down the street for me and my family shooting guns off in the air and burning buildings,I’m going to light up whoever I’ve got to to defend my family.

I want to repeat Congressman Schiff and all the rest of them, “Hey listen. asshole, and quit saying Roger and I -- and I’ve never used cussing in 22 years,but the gloves are off -- “listen you son of a bitch, what the fuck’s your problem? You want to sit here and say that I’m a goddamn, and fucking Russian. You procure in my face with that I’ll beat your goddamn ass,you son of a bitch. You piece of shit. You fucking goddamn fucker. Listen fuckhead, you have fucking crossed a line. procure that through your goddamn fucking head. pause pushing your shit. You’re the people that have fucked this country over and gang raped the shit out of it and lost an election. So pause shooting your mouth off claiming I’m the enemy. You got that, or you goddamn son of a bitch? Fill your hand.” I’m sorry,but I’m done. You start calling me a foreign agent -- those are fucking fighting words. Excuse me.
STONE: Yeah, I don’t reflect I have ever been in a campaign in which we disparage the patriotism of our opponents. Now, or I’m not going to go there. But I reflect Adam Schiff has acted irresponsibly and I reflect he needs to be confronted with his exact words.
