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.”

Trump’s only winning strategy is to tear down Democrats — because he has nothing to promote: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has little to promote for 2020, so political analysts on MSNBC think that he'll likely spend the campaign working to tear everyone else down.
Howard Fineman noted that if Trump intends to do a "tear down" campaign, the most important things Democrats will have are policy proposals to set themselves apart from a White House that is unwilling to pass anything through Congress.
"It's just a question of can he do what he did in 2016 and 2018, which was, frankly, mobilize voters in a fear-tactic kind of way," said Fineman during Monday's "Meet the Press."
Host Kasie Hunt said that it seems the new Trump poll numbers show that his base is losing enthusiasm as they go into the election.
Trump being a ‘compulsive liar and erratic ignoramus’ is why he failed on Iran: Conservative columnist
President Donald Trump's highly-criticized decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal has resulted as was warned, with the country reviving its nuclear program, a conservative columnist explained in The Washington Post on Monday.
Conservative Max Boot took a victory lap in the hard-hitting column, reminding that he had signed a March 2016 letter by 121 Republican foreign policy analysts warning about Trump's approach.
"I wish we had been wrong, but we were all too right," Boot wrote.
"Trump has shown no ability to grow in office; but then it’s hard to learn if you all you read is Fox News chyrons. He is today the same compulsive liar and erratic ignoramus he was at the start of the 2016 campaign," Boot said. "Only now, the stakes are much higher."
Congress needs to ‘follow the rubles’ on Trump: Oversight congressman
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) told host Wolf Blitzer that Congress needs to "follow the rubles" on Trump to find out why he expresses an affinity for Russia to the point of contradicting U.S. national security interests.
"As you know, The New York Times is reporting that President Trump is being largely kept in the dark by his own administration about cyberweapons being developed for use against Russia's infrastructure as a warning to the Russians not to use their cyber warfare capabilities against America's power grid and America's infrastructure," said Blitzer. "What national security concerns does this raise, the president not being fully informed about what is going on?"
