“Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones wants a Texas judge to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed against him by families of some of the children killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. A hearing Wednesday in Austin is the first of two this week involving the Infowars host.

Jones was sued after repeatedly claiming on his Austin-based show that the Connecticut shooting was a hoax.

The shooting killed 20 children and six adults, and it left a lasting mark on the way America thinks about school safety. It helped usher in an era of “active shooter drills” and difficult conversations about safety for even the youngest kids.

Jones now admits the shooting occurred, but says his claims were free speech.

A similar lawsuit was filed in Connecticut. He’s also being sued by a man falsely identified on the Infowars website as the gunman who killed 17 people at a Florida high school in February.

Jones’ profile has spread from the far-right fringe in recent years. While running for president in 2015, Donald Trump told Jones his reputation was “amazing.”

Recently, Jones made a baseless claim that Democrats would launch a civil war on July 4. That inspired a viral #SecondCivilWarLetters social media movement of users mocking the idea.”

The only way to stop this sicko is to hit him where it hurt and that his pocket. Jones was crying about how his life is going to be ruin by this lawsuit.

Jay Boogie says:

I love the internet because a lot of the news reporters on TV do not publish certain stories and the internet does then you have individuals like this throwing hints to his fans and other sick individuals so they can act out against individuals with violence even murder this is no way protected under the Constitution because this is hatred 100% and he's trying to incite violence.

Trevor H. says:

What Jones is saying is still protected by the first amendment, so long as the threat of violence is not "imminent". Essentially, the victim has to be within beating/killing range while jones is telling his idiot followers to hurt or kill them. It's a stupid policy of the highest court in the land, but it's the "law", so to speak. Americans should lobby to get the Supreme court to go back to the "clear and present danger" doctrine, which does not require the threat of violence to be imminent. Were this the case, this broadcast of his would not have been protected speech, nor would any of his broadcasts that resulted in his lunatic followers physically harassing the families of Sandy Hook victims.

Leeanne Bishop says:

There got to be laws against this kind of harassing bullshit do something about him he is physco

Leeanne Bishop says:
