Here Come The Nutbars

InfoWars nutbar Alex Jones has endorsed Pierre Poilievre. Emily Leedham writes:

Pierre Poilievre has earned a new admirer — conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Jones, who regularly promotes conspiracy theories and hateful rhetoric through his website InfoWars, took time during a recent broadcast to heap praise on Canada’s newly elected Conservative leader.

During an interview with John Birch Society Program Director Robert Owens, Jones identified Poilievre as one of the leaders of a “rising” global far-right movement that is challenging the “New World Order.”

According to Jones, those far-right leaders include Canada’s new Conservative leader as well as Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Italian President Georgia Meloni.

“As negative as things are, we got Bolsonaro, we got Georgia Meloni in Italy, we got the new Canadian leader who’s set to beat Trudeau — who is totally anti-New World Order,” Jones said on his September 30 broadcast.

“You look all over the world, we are rising right now.”

Just what the world needs. Ask the Sandy Hook parents of the kids who were gunned down there. They are still chasing Jones to pay up on the judgment they were awarded for the lies he told about what happened there. 

Caveat emptor.

Move over Bill Murray, we are all living in Groundhog Day.

I googled your opening

to see if the MSM covered it.

and got a bunch of two-year-old hits ... so ...

Alex Jones has endorsed Pierre Poilievre AGAIN!

Apparently, this is a two year old story, PoV. But this is the first I've heard of it.

If I were a liberal election advertising team I’d make sure that information was in one of them, with photos and audio.

Some important stories do not see the light of the day!
Some years ago the struggling Nanaimo Conference Centre hosted the Council of Canadians for a two day conference and discussion groups.
Tho the centre was booked to capacity for the first time the occasion was not reported in the local media , nothing nada!!

Really Owen, you do not monitor Alex Jones every day? I am shocked and appalled! We depend on you. The CBC is okay but very limited. Oh well.

Bolsonaro is gone but Alex is probably a new fan of Javier Milei of Argentina. Milei seems to be wreaking Argentina at an amazing pace. Meloni does not seem anywhere near as bad as I thought she would be.

Back in the early 1900's I believe the betting in the UK was about even on whether Canada or Argentina was the rising star of the 20th C. People like Mackenzie-King and Pearson were not wildly exciting but there is something to be said for boring competence

Owen Gray said...

Something tells me that Mr. Jones will be showing up in the next election, Graham.

Owen Gray said...

It is more than just a little surprising that this story is showing up now, TB.

Owen Gray said...

I agree, jrk. These days we could use a little more competence.
