Alex Jones: I’m not anti-marriage equality, but it’s a plan to make us ‘asexual humanoids’
Conservative radio host Alex Jones tried to portray himself on Monday as being neutral on marriage equality, but accused the United Nations of trying to “sexualize children” via childrens’ books discussing same-sex parents.
“It’s nobody’s business to target children with Heather Has Two Mommies, or ‘You can’t say boy or girl to somebody who may not identify as that,'” Jones said in footage posted by Right Wing Watch. “That is space-cult, suicide cult exterminism craziness. The eugenics, trans-humanist cult wants to confuse the general species ahead of rendering us down and removing us. The plan is an asexual humanoid, even if they decide to keep us around, stated in hundreds of textbooks.”
Jones was referring to a 1989 book by Leslea Newman and Laura Cornell in which the protagonist, Heather, learns from her teacher that “the most important thing about a family is that all the people in it love one another.”
Before railing against the supposed plot, Jones argued that his real listeners — as opposed to “somebody with a script” — would recognize that he was not against same-sex couples because he was a libertarian. However, he then suggested disagreement with the Supreme Court decision legalizing their right to marry nationwide.
“For the first 18 years, I didn’t even cover this,” Jones said. “I don’t get into what you do in your bedroom, OK? I am not in peoples’ bedrooms, I am not a Pharisee, I am not a hypocrite. My world does not revolve around sex, either, and so I’m sick of it. It’s a football issue, it’s not a federal issue. It’s a distraction to be passed back and forth.”
