Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who earlier this year led the push to have CNN host Piers Morgan deported, is now calling on singer Taylor Swift to stop endorsing Diet Coke.
Jones’ criticism, released on Friday, hinges on the soda containing the sweetener Aspartame, which some studies have linked to different kinds of cancer. The substance, he said, is the result of a 1960s Pentagon study that sought to produce genetically-engineered e-coli bacteria, meaning that soda drinkers were drinking “the feces” of the results.
“So in essence, Taylor Swift is telling us, she loves genetically-modified bacteria poop,” Jones said in response.
Aspartame was approved by the Food & Drug Administration, Jones said, because of the efforts of “globalist hatchet-man” and former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and appealed to the singer, saying he hoped her endorsement didn’t constitute a “dirty little secret.”
“Taylor, no amount of money in the world is worth hurting people,” he said. “We understand Donald Rumsfeld and the eugenecists love spiking our food and water supply with deadly chemicals to reduce our fertility and lower population. But you, I know, don’t want to be involved in this, and no amount of money is worth your soul.”
