Alex Jones Custody Defense: On-Air Personality Merely an Artifice

Alt-right provocateur Alex Jones will reportedly attempt to prove that his bombastic, caustic on-air personality is simply "performance art", as the Infowars host tries to keep custody of his three children. "He is a performance artist".

The Jones' 14-year-old son and two daughters, ages 9 and 12, have lived with their father since his 2015 divorce, according to the Statesman. "The children are there, watching him broadcast", she added. Erica Lafferty lost her mother in that shooting and has called on Trump to disavow Jones for his conspiracy theories, but Trump has never responded.

Similar issues were brought up by both sides during jury selection Monday, according to BuzzFeed News' Charlie Warzel, who was tweeting from the courtroom.

Jones and his ex-wife, Kelly, are involved in a child custody case, and as the Austin American Statesman writes, a jury will have to determine if Jones's persona is fake or real-and if that should have a bearing on whether he gets custody of his children.

Jones interviewed Donald Trump when he was a candidate for president, in December 2015.




And he acknowledged the threat against Schiff a few days after it first aired, calling it "clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art". Not surprisingly, she and her attorney are pointing to Alex Jones' InfoWars content as proof of his unsuitability as a parent.

Jones also lashed out at Jennifer Lopez for her post-election lament about Trump during the Grammys in February. He most recently apologized for promoting a conspiracy theory dubbed "Pizzagate" about a Washington, D.C., pizzeria being used as a front for a child sex-trafficking ring.

So, when a major presidential candidate and eventual president tells the world that a "journalist" has an unbelievable reputation, people will believe what that person has to say, even if its all built on a foundation of lies. "You get in my face with that, I'll beat your g****n ass, you son of a b***h". He said the Sandy Hook attack, in which a gunman took the lives of 20 children and six adults, was staged to gain support for gun control.

Jones has always been criticized for both the coarse language and conspiracy theories that have been a staple of his show for years. He said he expected Obama to stage a coup or declare martial law in order to prevent Trump from taking office, and he has pleaded with Hillary Clinton not to kill him.
