Sandy Hook attack was 100% real says Alex Jones
After speaking with his lawyer, Alex Jones now says that he understands that it was irresponsible for him to say that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax. He now believes it was 100% real.
Jones told a Texas courtroom that he knows the parents of six-year-old Alex Johnson are indeed suffering.
“Especially since I’ve met the parents,” Jones said at his trial for defamation in which he found himself having to pay reparations for his statements that Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis have mislead Heslin into believing threats tweeted by Jones were real. The Twitter account called F—— Heslin, a nickname associated with Jesse Lewis, whose life was taken in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Hezelin and Lewis want Jones to be held accountable for his false statements about the attack. They are asking for at least $150 million.
“I think it’s appropriate for what you decide to do,” Jones commented.
Court adjourns day after testimony of star witness
Jones is the only person testifying. His attorney asked him if he now understands it was irresponsible to push the false claims that the massacre never happened and no one died.
Jones says that he does, but adds, “The media won’t let me take it back.”
He was criticized for talking about the Sandy Hook shooting too often.
Jones raised his hand for mass tragedies, such as the Oklahoma City Bombing and Parkland Shooting. Even when faced with Mark Bankston’s tough cross examination, Jones denies everything.
Bankston surfaced a video clip of someone on Infowars, not Jones, suggesting that the trial was rigged. He also shared a photo of the outspoken judge on fire and another instance in which Jones acted as if the jury responsible for sentencing him isn’t from planet Earth.
Jones said he “does not use email,” then was shown a message that came from his email address. He replied, “I must have dictated that.”
Bankston told Jones that his attorneys had mistakenly sent him the last two years of texts from Jones’ phone.
Jones also submitted an email that Infowars Business Officer wrote to him saying they made $800,000 in gross sales on the day, which would total up to nearly $300 million over a year.
Journalists Mike Heslin and Alton L. Lewis testified that Jones and his sites’ false hoaxes cost them and their families so much harassment, death threats, and online abuse that it has made their lives a “living hell.”
