Newsweek is reporting that far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones of Infowars is inciting his listeners to murder “Leftists”.

“On June 23, he accused “the left” of starting civil war and offered to personally execute convicted traitors because, he said, “I’m not going to sit here and just call for stuff without actually being part of it.” In the same broadcast he said, “I don’t need some coming-of-age deal to kill a bunch of liberals,” but “we have to start getting ready for insurrection and civil war because they’re really pushing it.”

“On June 15, he warned “you kick off Civil War 2, baby, you’ll think Lexington and Concord was a cakewalk.” The day before, he implicated himself and his listeners: “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, you fools.… But I can shoot bull’s-eye at 400 yards, dumbass. I mean, they have no idea who they’re messing with.”

“In a May 13 broadcast, he warned that “leftists want a war,” so “cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war.”

Mr. Jones is far from the only right wing ideologue pushing for the mass murder of “Leftists”.

What makes the Infowars founder different is that he and the President of the United States have a personal relationship. Following his surprise victory, Mr. Trump reportedly thanked Mr. Jones and Infowars for their support. It has been reported that Mr. Jones and President Donald Trump have spoken since then.
