NATION-WORLD Infowars' Alex Jones blames Sandy Hook conspiracy claims on 'psychosis' Several families say that Jones' comments have subjected them to harassment and death threats by his followers. Author: Associated Press Published: 3:38 PM PDT March 30, 2019 Updated: 3:41 PM PDT March 30, 2019
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones blamed the various claims he's made over the years, including that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax, on "psychosis," according to a deposition the "Infowars" host has given as part of a Texas lawsuit.
Jones described his conspiracy thinking as a kind of mental disorder during the deposition taken earlier this month for the lawsuit filed against him by the family of a 6-year-old who was among the 20 children and six adults killed in the Newtown, Connecticut, attack, the Austin American-Statesman reported .
Jones said during the deposition that he "almost had like a form of psychosis back in the past where I basically thought everything was staged, even though I'm now learning a lot of times things aren't staged."
Jones blamed his mental state on "the trauma of the media and the corporations lying so much, then everything begins you don't trust anything anymore, kind of like a child whose parents lie to them over and over again, well, pretty soon they don't know what reality is."
The defamation lawsuit was filed in Travis County, Texas, where Jones' media company is based. In August, the judge presiding over the lawsuit denied Jones' request to dismiss the case .
Jones' attorneys have defended his speech in court as "rhetorical hyperbole," but denied it was defamation.
During the deposition, Jones continued to voice conspiratorial suspicions about the shooting.

Malkinâs book was disgusting, defending the crimes of the evil FDR.
Alex is a muffin top.
Thanks for finding that. I vaguely recalled JimRob posting something along these lines, but I wasn't sure.
CPUSA head Gus Hall, who for CIA director John Brennan bragged about voting for Pres, had posters put up all over NYC claiming John Lennon was killed by the CIA.
Interesting as John Lennon before the 1980 election had personally written RR saying he regretted not being able to vote for him as he was not a citizen and saying he had made the maximum personal contribution to his campaign. Amazing story, Lennon in his last years reversed his politics 180 degrees, regretted sending money to the IRA PROVOS and a host of other stupid and bad acts he had done. Reports are Yoko was not very happy about his change.
What else would one expect from Alex.
I dont think hes going to get a pass by claiming to be mentally ill
Actor David Wheeler exposed as Sandy Hook “crisis actor” (Slam Dunk Hoax)
Alex Jones was near to having the most popular App ever on the Apple store.
They cannot have a skeptic as Number 1, so they banned Alex.
Certainly Alex Jones is a psychotic devil, what other name does fake news call you when they fear you winning time and again.
The Nation of Communist China attacks infowars.
They do not attack Fox or CNN or FRepublic.
Dictator “President” Xi is a Winnie the Poo bear.
Alex is a psycholic devil.
All you can do is ban your opponent.
But the Battle for Liberty continues ...
Always believe whatever state-controlled media tells you.
It will serve you well.
When are mass shooting parents gonna start blaming Democrats for banning self defense for adults and children.
There were ZERO shootings in 100 years of 1800s school houses. Banning defense has killed your kids.
These folks are ignorant and dangerous.
Gun control kills.
The Alex Jone’s shows are real journalists in real time.
You apparently love your teleprompter reader, slick models.
You love readers. Infowars has live talkers.
You love fake people. Others love real people.
You banners fear excellence.
You cannot compete, so you whine, instead of improve.
Info Wars is the best show in town.
Psst ... that is why they are BANNED.
They compete in real time and destroy fake news.
It is very entertaining.
I remembered, but just not “when” (I had to search for it).
I was the first one, I think, to post an article from IW after that. There’s been at least one other since then, that I know of.
I would not go that far. I have always thought that Jones was at least a bit of an agent provocateur. There is PLENTY to question about Sandy Hook, regardless of what the usual official narrative defenders here and elsewhere say, and without AJ sounding like the obnoxious blowhard. I was smeared as an AQ/terrorist sympathizer for questioning Sandy Hook...here!! I simply brought up the “parent” caught laughing on CNN prior to his melodramatic press conference...or the medical examiner snickering (also a state police officer behind him) during a press conference describing alleged dead children...or the aerial footage of the fire station. Etc.
Oh well. There are gatekeepers everywhere. And they practice Alinsky tactics against those of us who genuinely want truth.
Since you didn’t answer the question, I assume you don’t know.
[ He has done great work against the Globalists. Sorry, the Sandy Hook parents don’t get to use their tragedy to take away Constitutional rights. ]
Sand Hook happened right after the Aurora Theater shooting and there was a hell of a lot of dubious crap swirling around James Holmes the shooter, stuff surrounding what he was involved in like his neuroscience stint that may have involved DARPA...
It was also at the height of Obama Using mass shootings as a excuse to “Have a discussion” and “Take action” against our 2nd Amendment rights.
I myself heard when sandy hook happened that, whoa!! what the the hell is going on here. I think Sandy Hook was an actual shooting, but i was on the fence for a few months after thinking... well maybe... I wouldn’t put it past gun grabber Barry.... maybe not... well maybe...
[ What is Sandy Hook truther stuff? Weve had discussions on this around here too. Some events are questionable. Sandy Hook is one of them. ]
Always remember that Sandy hook happened right after Obama won his second term after beating Milktoast Mitt.
A lot of people were VERY and JUSTIFIABLY paranoid that Lame Duck Term Obama wasn’t going to let a crisis go to waste to destroy the right of self defense against a state of tyranny.....by using an event or even STAGING an event to TAKE THE GUNS!
Exactly correct. He is basically Bat Sh-t crazy. He does great harm to logical discourse. He is to be ignored and oddly pitied.
My “complaint” is that many conservatives think that the left (or DS) is unwilling to deceive or kill to achieve goals.
Criminal and civil conspiracy statutes exist at the State and Federal level. They are only valid and meaningful if they do not challenge official narratives??
Garbage believed by losers.
LOL. I think you spewed the same garbage response the last time I participated in a thread on Sandy Hook.
I think it is time for your cranberry juice.
Says the sicko whose garbage is banned at FR.
