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.

Sure, but what seems "off" to me is how very efficient that one pasty kid was, despite only having a few minutes before he offed himself, and emergency services were in the building to help victims within 19 minutes... whereas the two kids at Columbine were far less efficient overall, despite having far more time, and emergency services not being allowed in the building for 3 hours. The discrepancies deserved inspection that was never allowed, mostly because of all the surrounding nonsense.
I’ve always wondered about the lack of blood and chaos inside the Sandy Hook school. Compare the photos after the French news paper shooting (or any shooting) with the few of Sandy Hook.
The French paper shooting there is blood EVERYWHERE with drag marks down the hall, etc. And tables overturned and paper strewn all over.
At Sandy Hook there are some small dark splotches on the carpet with an arrow pointing at them saying “blood stains”. One room showed an overturned chair next to two others at the table, and neat stacks of crap along the one wall.
The parking lot is odd as well. An overhead shot shows almost every car parked is facing one direction - like the lot was empty, and they started driving cars in and not worrying about following the driving lanes.
No easy answer about what happened to all of those children though. So it probably did happen. I guess. Just lots of stuff that is really odd about it.
[ 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?? ]
They left would kill their own grandmothers to get power....
I have no doubt there have been democrats who have actually done in granny to get ahead or cover up their own past... all in the name of getting power.
Malkinâs book was disgusting, defending the crimes of the evil FDR.
Even if it was Hillary Clinton that Jones was attacking in the video, it doesn’t change the fact that he went after a much smaller woman. I had no real opinion about him prior to seeing that video. Men that attack women are some of lowest scum on the earth.
I get it. You stand with brave men who attack women.
Back to the Alinsky tactics. You can’t debate so you sling it.
What is banned?
We can’t establish any facts when the legislature seals records to prevent independent investigation.
Your coy act is stale. You know very well what is banned at FR.
Post one of your sicko club’s sadistic “Fake Kids, Actor Parents” conspiracy fantasies as its own post at FR. See how long it and you last.
Now go away. Scuttle back into a crevice somewhere so you can trade in your perverse fantasies with your own kind.
I’m betting on marijuana.
Alex Jones was selling ads. This kind of wacky shizzle sells ads. It’s a business.
It’s just a BAD business.
The hulking obese Jones reached deep into his bravery reservoir to attempt to physically intimidate 90-lb Michelle Malkin.
In order for the shooting to have been staged, the entire county would have to be nothing but actors. People knew people who had kids in that school. You couldn’t insert an entire cast into a school without anyone noticing. Everyone in that school knew each other.
I’ve been on campus during a shooting. You cannot fabricate it.
Alex Jones is evil.
News footage is banned? LOL!
You must be really chafed that FR has become so much more skeptical about official narratives in the age of Trump. Aw.
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32 NKJV
He couldn't even stand his ground on the first amendment in this Sandy Hook controversy. He turtled and came up with this absurd defense. What a warrior.
How many times are you going to post this shit?
Go watch CNN where you belong.
