Alex Jones, the head of Info Wars and avowed conspiracy theorist, had a few choice words for Jennifer Lopez after her moving Grammy Awards speech urging people to use their voice for good. Jones replied to Lopez’s statement in a violent manner by suggesting that the entertainer go to war-torn Somalia so that she could be gang-raped.
Jones, who hosts The Alex Jones Show, took some time to respond to a Lopez’s plea during a Grammys speech that felt timely given the current political climate. Jones, a strong critic of liberals, ripped into Lopez and made the head-turning comment.
Media Matters posted a transcription and video of the quip:
ALEX JONES (HOST): Get into some of the people freaking out and flipping out at the Grammys. Here it is.
JENNIFER LOPEZ (VIDEO): This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair.
JONES: Stop, stop, stop. Back it up, back it up. Who is this? Who is this tart? I forget who she is. J-Lo. So again, giant corporate people making hundreds of millions of dollars, up there with their perfect manicured everything. All the leftists from these big foundations, where 1 or 2 percent of the money goes to the Africans.
And they hoard the money for themselves, like you know, the Clintons and Oprah, and all the rest of it. And she’s up there, “Oh and we just gotta do something, it’s we’re so oppressed, it’s all so horrible, what will“– Yes, let’s critique this — “it’s so terrible, what are we, it’s so [unintelligible] and Trump wants to build factories for poor people.”
He doesn’t want to bring people in from Somalia where women are sold on slave box. Why don’t you go to Somalia for five minutes, lady, you’ll be gang raped so fast it’ll make your head spin.
If you must, Media Matters captured and uploaded a video of Jones’ comment that can be viewed in the clip below.
