During an interview with Andrew Callaghan of Channel 5 (a YouTube web show), InfoWars host Alex Jones had a full-scale meltdown and stormed out.
The interview began when Callaghan asked Jones if he felt responsible for what happened to the families of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012, to which Jones replied:
When Callaghan tried to clarify the question, Jones began ranting:
Once more, when Callaghan attempted to interject, Jones continued his bizarre rant:
“Do I feel responsible that someone played shit about video games on a bunch of drugs, went and killed a bunch of kids and then the internet questioned it? And I covered that. No, I don’t feel responsible and I don’t apologize anymore. I’m done. I don’t apologize. I killed the kids.”
Callaghan challenged Jones:
But Jones was having none of it:
“No, I did. Everybody said no — no. I killed them. I killed them. I already admitted it. I did it. I killed them. I’m the bad guy. I’m the devil — get rid of the First Amendment. Can we move on to other topics?
“I killed them. First Amendment killed them. Second. Get rid of the Second Amendment. Get rid of the First Amendment. They’re bad. They killed the kids too. George Washington killed them. Jesus killed them. The whole — we should rename the whole planet Sandy Hook!”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Jones then added this sickening coda:
“It should be holidays. We should bow five times a day to New Haven, Connecticut for the kids that died. Every American is to blame — every gun owner’s to blame. I’m to blame. We are all guilty to Bloomberg and Soros. Turn our guns in, turn our guns in. I know I get it. I killed them. I killed them. I killed them. I know — I killed them. So I’m done talking about it. Okay. I killed them. Okay, go ahead.”
When an InfoWars employee suggested that Jones stop talking and walk away, the host had this retort:
Jones was recently ordered by a Texas jury $49.3 million in damages to the parents of a child murdered at Sandy Hook after he claimed the entire massacre — which left 20 children aged six and seven — dead, along with six staff members of the school.
