The lunatics Jared MIler and Amanda Miller were gun enthusiasts. They bragged they were part of something called Patriot Nation. They were also fans of the Alex Jones radio show. The Millers seemed to really take to Jones message of tyranny running wild in the United States. They were recently at the Bundy Ranch until they were asked to leave because some of the militia and others who consider themselves freedom fighters were made uncomfortable by the Millers violent ideas. They have also been all over youtube talking about their fears that the us government and the police were trying to take guns.
Oh and one more thing they were crazy!
Once again crazy people with guns committing horrible acts.
And once again a person who makes their living whipping these lunatics into a frenzy decides to not stand up and make clear that they don’t condone violence and instead double down on the same vitriol that gets the crazy people riled up and ready to shoot.
I am not saying that Alex Jones is responsible for this any more than the makers of video games or the makers of guns are responsible but I am saying that Alex Jones should at least be aware that there are crazy people out there that take his words to heart. His words on the day after the shooting could have included a message to his audience that violence isn’t the answer but instead on the day after the shooting his show included discussions on how this whole shooting was probably just a staged fake murder with the sole purpose being to make big fans of his look bad and as part of a big fan of shadowy globalist trying to take all of our guns away. In other words what he took away from his fans committing a horrible violent act was that he needed to double down on the same talk that incites lunacy. He decided why not fire up the next lunatic by scaring them with a story that finds a way to both absolve him of any blame and get the word out that if your a lunatic and you want to shoot someone based on the made up paranoid Bull spewed on his airwaves its fine with him.
Its sad, really really sad
