Alex Jones: Trump-U Judge Is a ‘Hispanic Grand Dragon’ Who Operates Like the KKK

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones went to bat for Donald Trump over the weekend, saying that the judge overseeing the Trump University lawsuit is practically the Mexican version of a Ku Klux Klan grandmaster.

The mogul set off a new controversy by repeatedly slamming Judge Gonzalo Curiel and saying that his Mexican heritage is a clear sign of a “conflict of interest” against Trump’s rhetoric.

Jones brought up the subject with Roger Stone, and he opined that Trump should turn up the heat because Curiel has promoted “race-based brainwashing” for decades.

Jones said in part:

The guy is worse than what Trump’s saying. And that’s the problem, Trump will just throw something out that’s true, but then I guess with the soundbites not get into the whole background of it. So, we’re going to talk about this judge a little bit right now, but I’ll tell you it’s a fair headline to say that this judge is the equivalent of a Hispanic grand dragon.

When Stone got a chance to weigh in, he defended the merits of Trump University and slammed Curiel as a “Mexican radical” who contributed to Hillary Clinton.

One of the most prominent justifications Trump supporters have used for the Curiel bashing is due to a supposed affiliation with the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), a pro-immigration group. Curiel is actually a member of La Raza Lawyers of California, a fairly-standard judicial collective with no known affiliation to NCLR, and the judge is known to have required protection once after presiding over a case against Mexican drug cartels.
