Within the wake of 2012’s Sandy Hook elementary college bloodbath that killed 20 kids and 6 adults, InfoWars host Alex Jones accused grieving mother and father of being “disaster actors.” This sample — based mostly upon Jones’ conspiracy theories that such tragedies are “false flag” operations geared toward taking down Second Modification rights — has (sadly) continued to current day. The latest Stoneman Douglas bloodbath was adopted by Jones feuding with teen survivor David Hogg (whereas additionally calling him a “disaster actor”), and this has resurrected the harassment towards Sandy Hook households, who are actually taking authorized motion.
The Huffington Submit studies that the mother and father of two Sandy Hook victims have sued Jones after enduring over 5 years of his lies and dying threats from his viewers members. Legal professional Mark Bankston has issued a press release on behalf of the mother and father:
“Even after these people needed to expertise this trauma, for the following 5 years they have been suffering from Alex Jones with vicious lies about them. And these lies have been meant to persuade his viewers that the Sandy Hook mother and father are frauds and have perpetrated a sinister lie on the American folks.”
Though Jones has been sued by a number of different folks — together with a person that InfoWars falsely blamed for the Parkland taking pictures and Chobani yogurt — through the years, till now, the Sandy Hook mother and father have solely sued NBC whereas making an attempt to cease the community from airing Jones’ 2017 Megyn Kelly interview.
Usually talking, such lawsuits result in awkward apologies by Jones on his present, nevertheless it’s tough to think about him backing down on the matter of Sandy Hook, by which he has fueled his notoriety and revenue stream, for years. Nonetheless, the mother and father of each Sandy Hook victims who’ve sued Jones are in search of over $1 million in damages, so which may simply be sufficient incentive for Jones to backtrack, lastly, on his largest (and arguably, his most harmful) lie. And since there’ll, inevitably, be future mass shootings, maybe this lawsuit can spare the households of future victims from the identical horrible therapy.
