Famed radio talk show host Alex Jones on Wednesday was ordered by a Connecticut jury to pay an astronomical $965 million in damages to Sandy Hook families and an FBI agent for calling the mass shooting a "hoax" a decade ago.
Just as in the first trial, the judge sidestepped the First Amendment and declared Jones guilty before the jury trial by claiming he failed to comply with discovery. The jury was only allowed to decide how much damages Jones owes, not whether his speech was protected by the First Amendment.
It's important to note that these lawsuits were not filed in 2012, 2013, or 2014, but in 2018 -- because special interest groups saw this as an opportunity to take down Jones for helping Trump win the presidency in 2016.
If Hillary Clinton had won, none of this would be happening.
From RT, "Alex Jones ordered to pay nearly $1 billion":
Controversial radio host Alex Jones has been ordered by a Connecticut jury to pay $965 million in damages to the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims for suggesting that the December 2012 massacre was staged.
Jones, founder of Infowars, accused Parker of being a crisis actor after he was shown on video briefly smiling at a press conference before speaking about the death of his 6-year-old daughter. He and other family members of the deceased children testified that they had been harassed and threatened by Infowars listeners because of the claims that Jones made. For instance, Mark and Jackie Barden said people urinated on their son’s grave and threatened to dig it up to prove that he wasn’t killed.
Jones said on his radio show Wednesday that he will appeal the verdict and that his company’s bankruptcy filing will protect Infowars while the case is still pending. He has portrayed the lawsuits against him as an attack on the constitutional right to free speech.Jones reacted to the verdict live on air:
Former Biden press secretary Jen Psaki celebrated the verdict on Twitter, claiming "the end of infowars would be a public service."
In contrast, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene boldly stood up in Jones' defense.
Jones received a huge amount of support on social media.
M.I.A., a famous British musician, also came to Jones' defense.
If Jones were to pay these judgements in full, he'd be on the hook for over $1 billion already and still has one more Sandy Hook trial to go in Austin. He's not going to pay out anywhere near that because he doesn't have the money and his company, Free Speech Systems, has already filed for bankruptcy.
Victim's rights attorney Lisa Bloom told Newsweek that she was "delighted" about the "enormous verdict against Alex Jones," while cautioning that collecting the money from him could be "very difficult."Jones is taking the punches as best as he can. As long as he keeps fighting, he will be able to survive and keep giving the globalists hell.
