Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones asserted on Monday that President Barack Obama had inspired black men to commit violent acts throughout the country, and that they had given a “green light” to kidnap the girlfriend of one of his friends.
During Sunday appearance on Fox News, economist Ben Stein had accused Obama of being “the most racist president there has ever been in America.”
“He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans,” Stein told Fox News host Shannon Bream. “The idea that the Republicans are making life difficult for black people is just nonsense, just absolute nonsense.”
Jones began his Monday radio broadcast by explaining why he thought the conservative economist had been right about Obama.
“All the bad things that our Founding Fathers did was done in their time,” Jones opined. “When in Africa and in Asia and in the Middle East, no one was saying slavery is wrong. Everybody had slaves.”
“So when we see the controlled corporate media point its finger at our Founders and at America, and say that we are the fount of racism, that is being done by people that want to promote it, and want to push it as a political diversion from all of the real discrimination that’s going on.”
Jones said that he was “sick” of the president and the Democratic Party “demonizing” the Founding Fathers by pointing out that they owned slaves.
In the process of detailing why Stein had been right about the president, Jones recalled that he had recently eaten in an upscale restaurant in a “gentrified area,” where someone “tried to mug us.”
“And it was a black guy doing it to us,” he noted. “And one of my crew members went out Saturday, and almost got mugged downtown. People pulled out knives. ‘We’re going to kill you whitey.'”
“They’ve so energized some black folks with hatred, they believe it’s okay to go out and attack whites,” Jones continued. “Just go out, you will deal with black Ku Klux Klan people basically.”
According to Jones, “groups of black youths” were roving downtown Austin to “beat up whites.”
“Six black males” beat up a man and sexually assaulted his girlfriend last week, Jones said.
In fact, the victims in that case said that only two men were physically attacking them, and at least one of the suspects was Hispanic.
“White houses, white businesses [are] being attacked,” the conspiracy theorist continued. “It’s like the Klan running around, who was racially motivated, randomly targeting black people to physically attack.”
Jones said that it has also happened to one of his friends on Friday night.
“Six black males come over two him, pull a knife out and basically say, give us your woman — she is an attractive lady, his girlfriend — or we’re going to stab you,” Jones declared. “And began punching him, and he has bruises on him, and then he just said, ‘Yes, you’re right, you win, you’re wonderful.’ And they didn’t stab him to death.”
“It’s racial! It’s racial!” he exclaimed, pointing to the clip of Ben Stein calling Obama the “most racist president.”
“I know this, he sure promotes it!” Jones said of Obama. “And there’s sure been this green light put out that being white is inherently evil. Or even Hispanic.”
