With Jones it is hard to tell whether he is advertising for a hit, or it is just wishful thinking to bring his whackjob audience to civil war.
One problem with Jones’ fantasy…If you kill Trump you have to kill all the Republican co-conspirators in Congress.
That ain’t going to happen short of a full coup, and that ain’t gonna happen short of the Military fully buying in. So…Short of some Lone Wolf whackjob doing the dirty deed, the Chumph will be removed by Impeachment either in the next few months, or in 2018 should the Democrats get the numbers.
Right-wing radio personality Alex Jones said Friday that the so-called Deep State is planning to assassinate President Donald Trump.
He and others on the far right have been accusing career government employees in the Deep State, particularily those who work in national security, of conspiring against Trump and his agenda. Far-right internet personality Mike Cernovich joined Jones Friday in predicting a coup against Trump in the next couple of months.
“They’re saying, ‘A month or two we’re going to kill the president, month or two we’re going to remove him,’” Jones said. “This is so sinister.”
Jones has a substantial following, with 4.8 million unique visits to his Infowars.com between June 5 and July 4, according to Quantcast. On Friday, he followed up with a call to arms, saying the Deep State is planning to kill Trump supporters as well as the president.
“If they ban us from YouTube, that’s when Trump will be killed, there’s no question about it,” Cernovich said. “They’re going to kill us, they’re going to kill him, they’re going to kill everybody.”
In recent months, the Infowars host and other conspiratorial right-wingers have been predicting a second civil war between conservatives and liberals. Jones and Cernovich alleged they were being censored by YouTube and Google and talked about planning protests against tech giants, including one at Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s house.
“Folks, they are going to blow the president’s head off, they are going to bomb him,” Jones said. “They are getting ready.”
Trump appeared on Jones’s show during the campaign, and longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone is a frequent guest on the program. “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down,” Trump told Jones.
Cernovich and Jones both promoted the so-called Pizzagate conspiracy theory, a false allegation that Hillary Clinton was involved in a child-sex-abuse ring. Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. has praised Cernovich, saying a he should win a Pulitizer for accusing Susan Rice of “unmasking” Trump associates. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster reportedly determined that Rice did nothing improper in regard to the allegation.
More recently, the far right has focused on McMaster, alleging he is a leader of the Deep State that is trying to undermine Trump (though without any solid evidence).
“No one voted for H.L McMaster- he is a neocon quisling, helping [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller line up @realDonaldTrump for the take-down,” Stone tweeted Friday.
