Alex Jones decided that the best way to go after Rachel Maddow for making a fool of him this week for his weather weapon conspiracy theory was to attack her for her sexuality and call her ugly.
As Karoli recently wrote about here, Rachel Maddow took wingnut Alex Jones to task for the long list of conspiracy theories that he's been peddling for years, the latest of which being that the United States supposedly used a "weather weapon" in Oklahoma.
So naturally, Jones decided to respond to Maddow in one of the ugliest ways imaginable -- by attacking her sexuality and her looks. Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes all the way to the bone, and as far as I'm concerned, Alex Jones really doesn't have any business saying anything about Rachel Maddow's looks.
Alex Jones responded to Rachel Maddow‘s skewering of his special tornado-weather-machine-conspiracy theory on his radio show Friday by saying she looks like a man.
After noting that the media was out to get him by hounding people he went to high school with, Jones said, “Or they could just do what Mr. Maddow does, I mean Janet Reno—Janet Napolitano! I get them all confused.” Jones pounded the desk in mock-frustration. “Pat from Saturday Night Live? No, no…Ron Maddow?”
“Nothing wrong with it, I mean, he’s a handsome guy.”

“I wonder if Mr. Maddow is gonna join the Boy Scouts as a troop leader,” Jones said, cracking himself up.
“I’m sorry, that’s not right,” he said. “I should criticize Rachel Maddow on lying to her audience.”
Jon Stewart was still on fire his second night back from vacation, despite having some trouble with his voice due to a cold and he laid into the right for their staunch opposition to any new regulations or form of gun control, even though we're constantly hearing them say that "everything should be on the table" to deal with the problem.

Rep. John Tierney (D-MA), the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's National Security Subcommittee, slammed Republicans on Thursday for conducting a hearing that he said was driven by Internet conspiracy theories suggesting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was buying a billion rounds of ammunition to use against the American people.
A reporter from Alex Jones' Infowars.com website found himself being being verbally destroyed by a resident on the streets of Boston over claims that the recent bombings had been the result of a so-called "false flag" operation carried out by the U.S. government.
Oklahoma Rep. Frank Lucas (R) recently told a conservative radio show that President Barack Obama's administration may be engaged in a "conspiracy" to purchase all available ammunition as a form of gun control.
Our friend and sometime contributor Leah Nelson has a post up over at the SPLC's Hatewatch site examining that fringe world between far right and far left -- dominated by the rightist element, in the person of Alex Jones and his proto-Patriot conspiracy shop. Read more...
