Conservative radio host Alex Jones claimed to have inside knowledge of what really goes on behind the scenes at “Democratic conventions” in a recent interview, Right Wing Watch reported.
“They’re really like criminal, bank robber types, like felon types I’ve been around before that are really creepy and have bad will towards people,” Jones told filmmaker Joel Gilbert. “And behind the scenes they’ll go, ‘Listen, when we take over we’re going to kill everybody. We want blood.”
Gilbert, who claimed in his previous work that President Barack Obama was actually the son of an American Communist, was on the show to promote his latest film, which compares Obama to the Wizard of Oz.
“He was a charlatan from the get-go. And his intentions were never good,” Gilbert argued. “When Dorothy gets to the Emerald City, the Wizard of Oz sends her to the witch’s castle. She’s taken prisoner in the dungeon. And that’s what’s happened in all the progressive cities throughout America that I travel to in the film.”
Gilbert listed Chicago, Denver, Detroit and Newark as “dungeons of progressivism” he visited during the course of his filming. He also claimed that these cities suffered from “50 percent unemployment,” a vast exaggeration.
According to federal data, Detroit is the only city even breaking a 10 percent unemployment rate as of December 2014, with 12.2 percent of residents without a job, exceeding Chicago (6.2 percent), Denver (4.2 percent) and Newark (9.4 percent).
