Alex Jones: 'My Gut Tells Me' Antonin Scalia Was Murdered

Alex Jones took to Facebook to ask his rubes, "Was Antonin Scalia murdered?"
Alex Jones: 'My Gut Tells Me' Antonin Scalia Was Murdered

After the news broke that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away, I tweeted this at around 4:00 PM PST.

I was kinda being facetious about this because Scalia was 79 years old and we had Republicans confirming his death by natural causes, but I wouldn't put it past Jones to go there and he did.

On Saturday Night, Alex Jones, conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, went on Facebook to give an emergency transmission to his believers.

Jones: My friends, it's Saturday night, this is an emergency transmission.

Breaking: Justice Scalia Murdered?

Posted by Alex Jones on Saturday, February 13, 2016

Jones: The question is, was Antonin Scalia murdered? And the answer to that is, has the Bill of Rights and Constitution been murdered? Has it been reported that members of the Supreme Court have been blackmailed? Yes it has.

When they kill somebody they say, "it appears to be natural causes, nothing to see."

And I wish it was natural cause, but man, my gut tells me no. And if this is an assassination, this signifies that they are dropping the hammer.

He even brought up a conspiracy about Andrew Breitbart's death.

(Sorry, I couldn't transcribe anymore.)

One thing is certain, Alex Jones is certifiable.
