Report: Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an Infowars fan; Alex Jones alleges conspiracy!/conorjrogers/status/326801949494226944

So the bombers were big Infowars fans, apparently. I hope this fucks with whatever batshit conspiracy theory Alex Jones has about it.

Alex Jones believes that the Boston Marathon bombing was a “false flag” operation conducted by the U.S. government and predicted by “Family Guy.”

Alex Jones is also a grade-A nutball.

Despite his grand delusions, there aren’t a whole lot of people who take Jones seriously (and those who take him seriously generally aren’t taken seriously themselves). According to an AP report, though, one of the conspiracy loons who did give Jones a chance was none other than accused Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev had more in common with @toure then he did with Right Wingers. #Truther

Color no one surprised:

Alex Jones waits not a second to inflame conspiracists about the Marathon bombing, and it turns out the bomber’s a Jones fan? Just too rich.

Least-surprising revelation so far in Boston case: Tamerlan Tsarnaev liked to listen to Alex Jones.

The Boston bomber was an Alex Jones loving, infowars reading conspiracy theorist. It’s almost like they’re dangerous crazy ppl or something!

Alex Jones said Tamerlan Tsarnaev listening to his show was a conspiracy? No shit he says the same thing to the toaster everyday.

Still, all this has got to make people wonder: what does Jones think about the revelation? Buzzfeed’s Rosie Gray took it upon herself to find out:

just spoke with Alex Jones regarding the fact that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a fan of his. coming soon….

— Rosie Gray (@RosieGray) April 23, 2013

Jones doesn’t want to make anything out of the Tsarnaev connection. Makes sense, since he’s always been the type to proceed with extreme caution:

Alex Jones: “He could be a listener. It could be true. I’ve talked to the family and most of them are listeners.”…

— Rosie Gray (@RosieGray) April 23, 2013

But he says he’s concerned about the Tsarnaev family:

Alex Jones says the Tsarnaev family are listeners. The aunt wonders what gave it away.

— Danielle(@DCPlod) April 23, 2013

“They think it’s a setup,” Jones said, adding that “the State Department openly funds radical Islam in Dagestan.” Alex Jones is batshit.

— Fati McGee (@fati_mcgee) April 23, 2013

OK, well, the first part of that is true. Some family members definitely think it’s a setup.

But it’s not just the family crying conspiracy. In addition to his assertion that the government orchestrated the bombing, Jones also insists that the government is responsible for linking him to Tamerlan:

“I’ve seen this before,” Jones said. “The federal government trying to connect me to tragedies. That’s the media and the government’s own conspiracy theories.”

It’s all part of a nefarious plot, you see. Open your eyes, America.

It’s funny because Alex Jones loves to exploit people’s connections with other things. –…

But why stop at the U.S. government? This could be much, much bigger!

@politicsoffearI bet $5 that @realalexjones says he is being set up by the globalists because he “knows too much”.

— Danny (@Dannypace) April 23, 2013

@anarchoantihero A cunning plot by the lizard people to discredit Alex Jones, no doubt.

— Paul Disturbance (@usernm) April 23, 2013

Oh man.

Tamerlan the Terrorist loved Alex Jones & InfoWars? Alex Jones is in on the “conspiracy”.

— Dr. Schadenfreude (@PoliticsOfFear) April 23, 2013

Alex Jones was the first to say “False Flag!” and it turns out the terrorist is a fan of his. Coincidence? I think not.

— Dr. Schadenfreude (@PoliticsOfFear) April 23, 2013

Minds? Blown. Like false flags in the wind.

Alex Jones is a false flag! “@mediaite: Report: Tamerlan Tsarnaev ‘Took An Interest’ In Alex Jones’ ‘Conspiracy Theory Website’ Infowars -”

— Bob Bonner (@RBonner_) April 23, 2013

Alex Jones: “So, if they’re false flags, but they think we’re right, then. . .we don’t exist?”

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) April 23, 2013

For the record, Infowars doesn’t like it when they’re portrayed as fringe:

This is what we get for questioning the mainstream narrative. We are the bad guys! We are terrorists! Gimme a break!…

— Infowars Magazine (@InfowarsMag) April 23, 2013

Terrorists? Not especially. Certifiably insane? You bet.

…claimed Tsarnaev’s throat wound was inflicted by the authorities, calling it “special throat surgery they did.”…

— T. Becket Adams (@BecketAdams) April 23, 2013

But hey, at least Alex is taking this all in stride:

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. #LameStreamMedia
