Over on the Black Pill, Brother Leeduva writes that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is in the midst of an entertaining custody battle. A bit of casual digging reveals the details, and it’s even better than I expected.
As the Austin American-Statesman reports, Jones has somehow managed to gain custody of his children after past divorce hearings. Naturally, Jones’ wife doesn’t find this convenient or profitable. So, she’s filing motions and pleadings in the Texas divorce courts to kidnap the children away from him, and pad her pockets at the same time.
Her legal strategy seems to be an attempt to paint Jones as unhinged, which has forced him, through his legal team, to confess the obvious.
At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.”
“He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”
Alex Jones is, of course, an entertainer. He makes his living as a showman in the modern socio-political carnival, titillating the masses with horrorshow stories about wild conspiracies. Brother Boxer finds it difficult to listen to him, because Jones’ act is thoroughly histrionic, and his arguments full of looney appeals to emotion. Be that as it may, I trust he must have some appeal, as the fans I am acquainted with seem to love him.
Jones also has a significant audience. Roger Stone, a bigwig in the Trump campaign, cited Jones as “having more viewers than CNN or Fox News.” This is (for better and for worse) probably true.
With such pull, Jones could be a powerful force against the feminist excesses that exist in the divorce court system. Now that Jones is personally suffering from the excesses of the dictates of the family courts, one would expect that he would start talking about how men are routinely railroaded in such venues.
Why isn’t Jones filling the airwaves and his youtube channels full of antifeminist ranting? Why is he not investigating the family-destroying divorce courts?
It clearly isn’t because he has some ethical qualms about exposing the family law racket. This is a man who helped fabricate nonsensical stories about Satanic sex cults, rather than do a minimal bit of research on Hillary Clinton (an idiot who spouts so many bad ideas that taking her down would be a fish-barrell scenario). He’s no stranger to taking on all comers, and as The Man in The Orbital Castle reports, Jones admits that he plays fast and loose with the stories he tells.
The sad fact is that Alex Jones is a male feminist. He won’t buck the divorce racket, because he is beholden to the very system he pretends to rail against. Jones is proving himself, even now, to be the ultimate conformist. Even the threat of losing contact with his own children isn’t enough to compel him to lead some demonstrations against the divorce vultures.
Alex Jones has every opportunity to do something meaningful for America’s families and children — and yet he’s not doing it. I find this very interesting, and you should, too.
