In the midst of a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, InfoWars host Alex Jones tweeted two close-up photos of a gun etched with epithets about “snowflakes,” “unicorns” and “libturds.” Jones sent the tweet out with heart emojis.

Of course, twitter sent Jones aflame, noting the inappropriateness of the tweet.
He tweeted an article about the shootings, promoting his web site, because that is what Jones does, monetize tragedy. Then he completed the day by making a false accusation about the shooter being Muslim.
That’s the conservative talk show host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for you. Promotes shooting liberals (I thought that the point in having guns was to be the “good guy with a gun” who would defend others. If you’re promoting hating and shooting someone for his political beliefs, doesn’t that make you the bad person who needs to be gone?). Jones promotes himself. He hates Muslims generally, and is factually wrong.
That is Alex Jones, who pollutes the public airwaves of this country daily. On the air when he isn’t speaking to Trump, that is.
