AUSTIN, Tex. (Heartland Newsfeed) — Did you think Rand Paul had a rough neighbor? Alex Jones states in a recent broadcast of his nationally-syndicated radio program that he’s thinking a lot lately about slaughtering and eating his neighbors.
Jones, who’s not a newcomer to controversy, shocked the Internet with another rant of derangement Friday. He states that he would eat his neighbors if he ever ran out of food. However, Jones also presented a message for what who he calls the “tainted globalist establishment.”
During this rant, the talk radio host states that society goes fully into an apocalypse similar to “Mad Max”, he’s prepared to eat his neighbors:
I’ll admit it. I will eat my neighbors. I’m not letting my kids die. I’m just going to be honest. My superpower is being honest. I’ve extrapolated this out and I won’t have to for a few years because I’ve got food and stuff.
Jones proceeds to graphically describe the scenario:
But I’m literally looking at my neighbors now and going, ‘Am I ready to hang them up and gut ’em and skin ’em and chop ’em up?’ You know what, I’m ready. My daughters aren’t starving to death. I’ll eat my neighbors.
Alex Jones: ‘I’ll eat your ass’
And you thought Rand Paul’s neighbor was unhinged? This takes that to a much higher threshold. Jones continues:
See, my superpower is being honest. I’ll eat your ass. I will. I’m combat model, optimum self-sufficiency, probably the leader. The point is, have you thought about that yet? Because I’m somebody that thought I could fix this and I’m starting to think about having to eat my neighbors.
Jones also delivered a message for the globalist elite, the catch-all term he and his audience actively fight against. In a statement of defiance, Jones delivers the following message to the tainted globalist establishment:
You think I like sizing up my neighbor? How I’m going to haul him up by a chain and chop his ass up? I’ll do it! My children aren’t going hungry. I will eat your ass! And that’s what I want the globalists to know: I will eat your ass first.
It’s not currently know whether the rant was to be taken seriously or construed as satire. It would be a bit shocking if his current neighbors weren’t already seeking another place to live.
Some people are taking it seriously
While some people were laughing at the unfortunate phrasing and references to cannibalism, some people are taking it seriously.
“Alex Jones is talking about eating his neighbors and he isn’t the only one thinking this way,” states Caroline Orr, a National Observer reporter on social media.
“Some far-right extremists see this pandemic as their opportunity to accelerate the destruction of our society,” Orr adds. “[And] if you’re not on their side, their plans for you are not good.”
Alex Jones’ ex-wife expresses concerns
Jones’ ex-wife Kelly Jones states that she’s afraid he will actually feed the human flesh of his neighbors to their three kids if society collapses. Should nothing change regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, there is the potential for society collapsing to anarchy due to critical food shortages. From her Twitter:
A lawyer for Alex Jones made a statement during divorce proceedings and in family court that the on-air Jones is a “performance artist” who is “playing a character.”
How it could be construed as satire
However, this recent rant to go viral could very well be considered satirical. It apparently references the manner of Jonathan Swift. Swift was the instigator of a scandal stemming from a 1729 “modest proposal,” which called for poor Irish families to sell their infant children for aristocrats to eat.
Moreover, Swift’s aim was to induce the reader to detest the speaker and take pity of the Irish plight.
Regardless, it doesn’t make Jones any less detestable.
