Alex Jones taunts Marco Rubio outside Senate hearing

WASHINGTON — Alex Jones accosted Foam Party Boy Sen. Marquito Rubio as he was being interviewed outside a Senate hearing examining the practices of Facebook and Twitter — with the senator at one point telling the conspiracy theorist he wouldn’t call the cops because “I can take care of you myself.”

“Is that a heckler at a press conference?” asked Reconquista Rubio, as Jones repeatedly interrupted a gaggle the Florida Republican was having with reporters during a break.

It only grew more heated from there.

“I just don’t know who you are, man,” Rubio said.

“Sure, sure, they demonize me in these hearings and then he plays dumb,” Jones replied, before plugging his notorious InfoWars website. “Marco Rubio, the snake; a little frat boy here.”

Rubio turned and faced Jones: “Who are you, man? Who is this guy? I swear to God I don’t know who you are, man.”

Jones then patted Rubio on the back, prompting a sharp response.

“Don’t touch me again,” the senator warned, while continuing his interview with TV reporters. “I’m asking you not to touch me again. I don’t know you, I don’t know who you are.”

Jones then interrupted again and asked if Rubio was going to have him arrested.

“You’re not going to get arrested, I can take care of you myself,” Rubio retorted.

Jones proceeded to call the Cuban-American politician “a little gangster thug.” (And a queer.)

Facing a sustained storm of criticism, Apple, Facebook and other tech giants recently reversed course and banned Jones from their websites and platforms over his baseless claims about the tragic slaughter of elementary school students in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.; the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Forida; and the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks.

He was also one of the driving figures behind the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, which alleged Bill and Hillary Clinton and their top aides were somehow connected to a non-existent :rolleyes: child exploitation ring run out of tunnels under a Washington, DC, pizza shop, which in reality has no basement.

Jones was forced to apologize after a man called Edgar Welch drove from North Carolina to the nation’s capital and shot up the pizza shop as he attempted to “self-investigate” the theory. Welch pleaded guilty to firearms charges and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Twitter is one of the few social media networks that has allowed Jones and his InfoWars website to keep publishing on its platform. However, that came after Twitter suspended Jones for seven days for violating its policies.

Jones, who claims he has been censored, said he was in Washington to “face his accusers” and demand that conservative and libertarian voices be heard.

President Trump accused the tech companies of filtering conservative news in favor of liberal publications.

WASHINGTON — Conservative provocateur Alex Jones stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday and held court outside a Senate hearing where tech executives from Facebook and Twitter were testifying.

Jones, who has been censored on social media, said he was in Washington to “face his accusers” and demand that conservative and libertarian voices be heard. He predicted action by President Trump and others within “two weeks” to crack down on tech giants for what he described as political persecution.

“Judgment day politically is here,” a red-faced and sweating Jones told reporters. “Attempts to intimidate the American people, attempts to silence us and bully me and others into submission in this globalist system are not going to work.”

Jones, who runs the InfoWars conspiracy website, had been sued by families of Sandy Hook victims for defamation over allegedly claiming the mass shooting was a fake.

Last month, Twitter banned Jones from the platform for seven days for violating its policies.

Jones says the mainstream media has taken his comments out of context and tech companies are colluding with Democrats to take down right-wing voices. He suggested an anti-trust crackdown on tech companies, increased regulations and charging companies with campaign finance violations because by shutting down competitors’ voices, they’ve given “billions of dollars in gifts to Democrats.”

“We have been getting information to the president, briefs on this. I told people a month ago he was going to take action. He started doing that,” Jones said of Trump.

Jones is allied with Roger Stone, a former Trump political confidante. Trump helped legitimatize Jones when he did an interview with the presidential hopeful in 2015.

Trump has accused the tech companies of filtering conservative news in favor of liberal publications and said the “serious situation … will be addressed!”

“The president needs to move forward with a push for a blue ribbon commission on defense of the First Amendment,” Jones said. “He needs to move now with executive orders exposing this new kind of campaign finance violation and in-kind gifts to the Democrats by big tech.”

Inside the hearing, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg were testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on what they are doing to prevent election meddling. Larry Page, CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, declined an invitation to come. Committee leaders left an empty seat at the witness table.

“I’m disappointed that Google decided against sending the right senior-level executive to participate,” Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said.
