Following the death of Charles Manson, Alex Jones’ Infowars program asserted on Monday that the serial killer’s “spirit” was still alive in social justice groups like Black Lives Matter and the antifascism group Antifa.
In a tweet on Monday, Jones encouraged viewers to tune in to a program titled, “The Spirit Of Charles Manson Is Alive In BLM and Antifa.”
“Charles Manson’s death provides an opportunity to reflect on current societal movements that share a similar spirit with Manson and his cult,” a description of the program explained. “Just like Manson, many groups are still trying to start a race war in America.”
“I think he tells us a lot about our current society,” guest host David Knight opined in a promo for the show. “I think we have his spirit living on in many cultural artifacts and movements.”
“Can we avoid a race war today?” he continued. “Because that’s what Charles Manson wanted to do. And we see that now with many elements in society. He’s really not that much different than George Soros, other than he got caught.

Wells Fargo has already hit stimulus cap as small businesses worry loans are running out: report

"Wells Fargo didn’t begin taking applications until Saturday and by Monday morning said it reached the $10 billion cap it had set for loans under the program," wrote Renae Merle. "Small businesses, which employ nearly half of the United States’ private-sector workers, say they are facing long waits and rejection as they scramble to secure loans through the fund, known as the Paycheck Protection Program. Many banks are accepting applications only from existing customers or businesses of a certain size."
Dominic Raab: Boris Johnson’s de facto deputy
When Boris Johnson announced he had tested positive for coronavirus, Downing Street said Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab would deputise if the British prime minister was incapacitated.
Few expected him to do so, as Johnson and his office repeatedly maintained the prime minister's symptoms were mild.
But after Johnson was taken to hospital on Sunday night, and transferred to intensive care just 24 hours later, Raab now looks set to be in charge for the foreseeable future.
Raab was one of the most prominent figures in Britain's protracted and divisive process to leave the European Union, serving as Brexit minister under former premier Theresa May.
