The perpetually red-faced Alex Jones has never been known for his restraint or subtlety, but the InfoWars host has now gone Full Tomato in a rant about drag queens.
In response to the success of “Drag Queen Story Hour” in New York City and San Francisco (it’s exactly how it sounds), Jones accused the queens of dressing up like “space aliens” in “horrible demon, psychopath outfits that make Pennywise look beautiful.” Clearly, Jones has only seen one drag queen in his entire life — and it was Sharon Needles.
He then continued to accuse all drag queens of being pedophiles, as if reading fairy tales to children is now a form of sexual radicalization.
“They show up and they have their way with your children, in demon outfits,” he proclaimed. “I mean, if you’ve got men that look like 400-pound goblin demons with your children, there’s nothing you won’t put up with.” We apologize. Jones has seen one other drag queen in his life — and it was Ginger Minj.
He then made a curious (and speciesist) comment that seemed to imply humans are the only known species who occasionally look like aliens.
“There isn’t a species on the planet that would let something that looks like a space alien get up close to its kids,” Jones shouted in a near-supersonic screech.
Jones appeared to have overlooked the oft-forgotten star-nosed mole and blobfish, which both look like aliens and also theoretically raise children. Rude.
AND THAT’S NOT ALL. After his rant, Jones picked up a chair and prepared to hurl it at the camera before the screen went black.
To be fair, that’s the same response that most gay men had every time Derrick Barry survived another week on Season Eight of RuPaul’s Drag Race — but Jones should probably check his, uh, info next time he wants to come after our people.
