InfoWars host Alex Jones is already blaming a federal government conspiracy and “false flag” operation for the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.
“The attacks in Orlando were a false flag terror attack,” Jones said in a video released Sunday. He proceeded to explain how “our government and the governments of Europe allowed these huge hoards of radical jihadis in,” by flying them into the country and intentionally failing to check their passports or vet them in any way.
“Our governments are bringing these people in and they’re allowing them to operate openly in our society, so they can attack us” as part of a plot to take our freedoms away, he said.
Jones blamed President Obama and German Prime Minister Angela Merkel of directly importing and encouraging terror within their borders, “so they can then say, ‘Oh, we’ve got to pass laws and hate laws, banning your speech, because you’re making the Muslims angry,’” Jones said. “Or, ‘Oh my gosh, we’ve got to pass other hate laws to deal with right-wingers and stuff, and we need your guns, of course, so you can’t protect yourself.’”
In a separate video released on Sunday related to the Orlando shooting, Jones said that the attack that left 50 dead was “phase one” of a coordinated assault.
Jones, the conspiracy mongering radio shock jock, notoriously blamed described the 2012 massacre at a Newtown, Conn. elementary school as a hoax and said that the San Bernardino attacks were also a “false flag,” or an event staged by the government in order to steal people’s rights.
