Alex Jones Says:I'm not anti-marriage equality, it’s a plan to make us ‘asexual humanoids’

O RLY?

You can't make this stuff up.


nservative radio host Alex Jones tried to portray himself on Monday as being neutral on marriage equality, but accused the United Nations of trying to “sexualize children” via childrens’ books discussing same-sex parents.

“It’s nobody’s business to target children with Heather Has Two Mommies, or ‘You can’t say boy or girl to somebody who may not identify as that,'” Jones said in footage posted by Right Wing Watch. “That is space-cult, suicide cult exterminism craziness. The eugenics, trans-humanist cult wants to confuse the general species ahead of rendering us down and removing us. The plan is an asexual humanoid, even if they decide to keep us around, stated in hundreds of textbooks.”

Jones was referring to a 1989 book by Leslea Newman and Laura Cornell in which the protagonist, Heather, learns from her teacher that “the most important thing about a family is that all the people in it love one another.”

Before railing against the supposed plot, Jones argued that his real listeners — as opposed to “somebody with a script” — would recognize that he was not against same-sex couples because he was a libertarian. However, he then suggested disagreement with the Supreme Court decision legalizing their right to marry nationwide.


Bolding mine. Can you believe he actually put that in a sentence? I'm starting to think poor Alex has had the tin foil hat screwed on so tight over the years, it's giving him dementia.

This is why Alex cannot be taken seriously, among other things, is that he's just as a crazy as those he claims to be against.

Alex also does it for the money and you can't claim that isn't true anymore. I can't even read info wars without wanting to vomit at the obvious doom porn and sensationalist diatribes that he and his contributors write.

generally speaking he stopped jumping sharks years ago and is now jumping megalodons

But playing devil's advocate is one of the fetishes i like to be open about so eh, here goes:


It’s nobody’s business to target children with Heather Has Two Mommies, or ‘You can’t say boy or girl to somebody who may not identify as that,'” Jones said in footage posted by Right Wing Watch.


Doesn't that actually make sense? why put children in a position to possibly doubt something they haven't even discovered about themselves yet?
No matter if you think homosexuality is natural or not, i think we can agree that it's unnecessary to have those sort of doubts.
Heterosexuality IS the norm, in that 98% of the world population is heterosexual.
do we HAVE to cater to every single variation of humankind possible just to be PC?
i would say when you haven't event started understanding yourself, homosexuality could very well be a choice.
Only with age and experience can you truly say you were born that way.
most kids are stupid, you can get one to scream it's a communist if there is candy to be had or a new toy.

Ok, the medication wore off.

I listen to his pod cast every now and then because we'll I'm living in another country where I don't speak tge language very well.

So every so often I want to listen to english... Also he cracks me up, every so often he releases a gem of a story.

But he is and most likely always will be a clown.

(though good on him for putting his weight loss out there for all to see)

Exposing children to different view points and teaching them acceptance, is actually how you remove prejudice and bigotry from the world.

I've never read the book, but I imagine all it does is try to show how a family with same sex parents are just as healthy and operational as one with different sex parents.

If that's the lesson to be learnt from the book, then it's a good one. And if people misinterpret that lesson, like Alex has so wonderfully done here, that's not their fault is it?

My children live in a same sex couple household. They knew about gay people from a very very young age. I cannot see where having two Dad's has at all effected their sexual orientation or identity. Other than being mercilessly bullied by ignorant for years about it.

But on a more serious note, i agree with teaching children about diversity and acceptance, but it feels more like parents need to be educated about it, since then they are the ones filling up their children with discriminatory nonsense.
I was born in 1985, so that gives you an idea of when i was growing up.
Really not a very accepting time, we didn't talk about this stuff at all at school but my parents raised me with a "live and let live" sort of approach so when it recently came to same sex marriage the only answer i could give is "doesn't impact me, so let them have it"
in my experience children are tolerant, even curious of what they don't know, or what is different.
the hate is instilled from the parents.
Teaching these things at school might just make them question themselves in a way they don't need to just yet.
But eh, maybe my mentality is as old as i am.

You really have to be subconsciously doubting of your own sexual orientation to feel threatened by the sexual orientation of others.

What I'm saying is Alex Jones isn't only crazy but also a closeted homo like everyone being mad at the unavoidable reality that homosexuality always existed and will always exist.

Teaching these things at school is the only way to give them a chance to escape the brainwashing from their parents.

Like teaching children in school the Earth is older than 6000 years is the only way some kids will ever have the chance to integrate and accept that concept before it's too late.

You say that like it's really hard to decide if you are attracted by the same sex or not?

For as long as I remember I knew about homosexuality since my uncle was living with his friend and the whole family was OK with that, and that never ever changed how I felt when hormones started to flow in me and made me attracted to the opposite sex.


Again, it's a completely irrational fear to claim that informing children about the social reality of homosexuality has a chance of "turning" them gays.

That's ridiculous and exactly the kind of misinformation and preconception that the homosexual community must face every day.

That's exactly the kind of lies that must be fought fiercely.

Homosexuality is as much a "choice" as your personal "choice" of being attracted to the opposite sex.

Saying it's a choice (even at a young age) is utter nonsense.

Bahahaha, the right wing, left wing and plain nutters are all getting so much mileage and losing so much credibility over this Gay Marriage thing.

I mean, I'm gay and I've not given it a second thought when I am not here on ATS and back in the real world. One day I might get to propose to the man of my dreams and ask him to marry me, Maybe I won't. The point is that now I have the option and I am free to have a day where we dress up, someone wears a silly hat and we get to make a promise that we may or may not keep with one another. Just like straight people do. Shouldn't it have always been this way?

Ummm, who said any bullying was involved???????

My partners nephew actually begs us to come and live with us when we visit him. He thinks it is great that we are 2 guys in love and follows us around like a shadow. He even gave us nicknames - I'm Uncle Funny M.... and my partner is Uncle cool M....

Children understand sexuality far easier than adults do. He was told by his mother that we are gay and he asked little questions like will they have babies, will they get married and do they love each other like you and Dad do. Then he thought about it and decided he was okay with it.

I ask you this;

What is better, a kid with two loving parents of the same gender, or a kid with heterosexual drug addict parents that ignore and abuse their child, raising it in an environment of chaos, hunger and misery?

Don't get me wrong I love my uncle and his partner and would support their right to have children, but this argument here is a bit fallacious so I wouldn't use it :p

The question is more this: "is there really any difference if both your parents wanted you, love you, and oh by the way they happen to be of the same sex?"

The answer is no. Some people can try to explain why they feel it's different but to be honest it's usually more an opinion than a fact.

I get where you come from and agree with your alternative argument, but honest to God truth, at the bottom of the hill, i.e. less than a mile away where i live is an area that I refer to as 'Nappy Valley' Every second house is the sort you see in horror stories with the unkempt gardens, the abandoned pushers and broken children's toys everywhere our front, broken windows in the house and the filthiest old banger of a car in the driveway. There are half naked unclean and neglected looking kids running around while overweight mothers sit on their front porches smoking cigarettes chugging back on those god awful premix canned alcoholic drinks. If you look at them or their kids, you get a feral 'What are you staring at?' response from them.

I really did mean what is better, living like that or with parents like potentially us who would feed them, teach them basic hygiene, manners and decorum and get them a good education. I often wish I could go and take some of those kids from their parents and give them a better life, because I often see them getting yelled at, slapped and hit, dragged around by the arms and crying.

Unfortunately I think poverty has little to do with sexual orientation. I get it it's almost impossible for a same sex couple to accidentally have kids, so it's not likely for them to be poor and uneducated and to also have children they did not want.

But it cannot be used as an argument in favor of same sex marriage. Just a problem of logical reasoning.

The problem you are describing is socio-economical and must be dealt as such, so if you don't want people to use that argument against you as a fallacy (which it is), don't use it

Thanks for the morning laugh, Tenth.
Jones seems to be reaching to keep his far right conspiracy audience but eventually he's just going to have to dive right into the same pool of crazy as David Icke to find new material.
