[It all goes down at the 47:00 mark]
Alex Jones is in the middle of a custody battle with his ex-wife over their three children. At some point when he wasn’t in court, he managed to record a one hour and six minute video a video for InfoWars that he posted over the weekend that went all over the place. The headline for the video is “BREAKING: ALEX JONES EXPOSES SANDY HOOK VAMPIRES. After 15 minutes of intro, Jones discusses his critics who accuse him of believing that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. Jones says that these claims against him are baseless, although he does say that he doesn’t know they truth about Sandy Hook. That’s pretty much all he says about that subject. Anyway, after about 45 minutes (out of and hour and six minutes), things start getting weird.
Jones somehow ends up giving a a rambling speech about the development of man in different eras. It starts out explaining how people hit times in their lives when they’re at their physical and mental peaks. I wasn’t able to follow all of it (I guess I’m not old enough yet), but thankfully the Austin American-Statesman kept track with a play-by-play. The weirdness hits the hardest exactly 47 minutes into the video above when he talks about his own development and what he was doing when he was 16, the age that he says humans are supposed to start having children.
When I was 16, I didn’t want to party any more. I didn’t want to play games any more.
I grew up. I’d already been in the fights, all the big rituals. I’d already had probably – I hate to brag, but I’m not bragging, it’s actually shameful – probably 150 women, or more, that’s conservative. I’d already had over 150 women, I’d already been in fights with full-grown men. I was already dating college girls by the time I was 15-years-old. I was already a man at 16.
Umm … mazel tov? Not really sure how supposedly getting into brawls with older men and sleeping with dozens of women makes someone more of a man, but way to go, Alex!
I wonder what the judge in his court case will think about this video. As an attorney, if Jones were my client I’d probably advise him to keep this talk to a minimum. Of course, maybe this is supposed to be proof that Jones knows how to best raise his children? The kids are currently 9, 12, and 14. I wonder what advice Jones will have for them in a few years.
