Default Alex Jones Takes His Show to the Capitol, Even Tussling With a Senator

Poor old Senator Rubio. Trying to be nice in the face of craziness.
watch video here: https://nyti.ms/2CnmpDL



The internet’s most infamous right-wing conspiracy theorist was doing his best robot through the hallway of a staid Senate office building.

“Beep beep beep beep — I am a Russian bot,” the provocateur, Alex Jones, mimed on Wednesday, his arms outstretched, his body spinning in circles. “Beep beep. I am a Russian bot in the Capitol.”

Dozens of protesters roamed Capitol Hill on Wednesday to disrupt the second day of confirmation hearings for Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

But Mr. Jones was on hand to cast a shadow over a different show — a pair of marquee congressional hearings scrutinizing the influence of two of the nation’s largest technology companies, Facebook and Twitter.

Alex Jones showed up to lurk in the hallway in protest of Left wing social media discrimination but didn't testify, didn't disrupt the hearing, or do anything particularly outlandish but he is the focus of the story not the ongoing purge of Conservative content by giant social media corporations.

Oh don't worry the leaders of these social media corporations know what's best for us, that's why it's OK for them to promote free and open social media platforms while the practice censorship guided by their political beliefs.

Generally speaking, those of us on the Conservative side tend to shy away from such useless acts of violence.

To associate Alex Jones with conservationism is an embarrassment to conservatives everywhere. He is stupid conspiracy peddling tard that the left wing media likes to use to make right wingers look idiotic. Every self respecting conservative should distance themselves from that man. It wouldn't surprise me if Jones is left winger parodying a conservative IE a poe.
