Alex Jones is a popular radio show host who, by his own admission, "had some family that, what, did stuff for the CIA".[1] He reached wider recognition with his documentary: Dark Secrets Inside Bohemian Grove in 2000.[2][3]

Criticism

Joël van der Reijden writes that "Alex Jones is a Christian conservative activist/operative who refuses to talk about groups as Le Cercle, the American Security Council, the John Birch Society, the Heritage Foundation and the Council for National Policy. I actually experienced this personally."[4] He observes:

"I was a very confused young man after watching some of Alex Jones' documentaries. It's not even that a naive social democrat from western Europe can learn a few lessons from strict constitutionalists as Alex Jones, but what the heck was this all about? The opinions are so extreme. While undoubtedly elites have entertained the idea of culling the Third World masses if the population situation gets too dire - at least one Rockefeller-funded scientist has proposed it [6] - Jones is blowing isolated facts completely out of proportion. He could have easily made many of the same arguments, if he voiced his concerns in a more measured manner."

The Washington Post reported in April 2017 that Jones had been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.[5]

Background

Alex Jones was born to a David Ross Jones and Carol Gretchen Jones (nee Hamman), both believed to be members of the CIA. As a teenager, he read Gary Allen's None Dare Call It Conspiracy which he calls "the easiest-to-read primer on The New World Order".[6] Alex Jones admitted on his radio show on Jun 10, 2014 that his father and other family members worked for the CIA during the 1980s.[7] [8]

Infowars

Jones founded Infowars in 1999. The work atmosphere there has been described by some who left as: "racially and sexually discriminatory".[9] Aaron and Melissa Dykes, who created Truthstream Media afterwards, were the target of an organized harassment campaign when they left Infowars.[10]

Enemy Images

Alex Jones makes copious use of both exaggeration and enemy images, including in titles of his video output, such as "Bilderberg 2015: The True Monsters Revealed".[11] Jones website claims that "Every new terrorist attack is part of an elite conspiracy" and that "The liberal Eastern Establishment is behind every conspiracy since the birth of Adam and Eve".[4] Ryan Dawson has captured Alex Jones' contradictions and the interchangeability of his statements with a video-cut of Jones' broadcasts from 2010 and 2015.[12]

The BBC reports that Jones once heckled a Bilderberg meeting through a megaphone: "We know you are ruthless. We know you are evil. We respect your dark power."[13]
