Alex Jones July 4th message appears to take the film 'Independence Day' as a documentary: 'Cyborg slaves of Satan'
A decades-old tradition for the July 4th holiday is watching the film "Independence Day," where Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum help save the world against an alien invasion across the globe. The powerful speech from Bill Pullman proclaims the Earth was joining together as one to fight against the monstrous UFOs that had already blown up the White House.
"We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore," said Pullman as the president. "We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution — but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!"
But in his own Independence Day speech, fringe firebrand Alex Jones appeared to take the film as a documentary.
"I declare a Declaration of Independence against the alien force," Jones explained. According to him, the aliens are "attempting to exterminate the majority of us, and force the minority to merge with AI computers and become cyborg slaves of Satan."
It's unclear where Jones got this information as it hasn't appeared on the QAnon message boards yet nor has anyone posted photos online of UFOs or alien invasions.
An actual documentary done by CNN on Alex Jones cited some of those he grew up with. One of his childhood friends recalled Jones being obsessed with Satan, and at times, he claimed, seemed like he was possessed.
"He would talk in tongues a lot and get into these trances," said Bo Durham, who grew up with Jones outside of Dallas, Texas. Jones was later forced to move from the city after he nearly killed another student, the documentary said.
Football coach and teacher Randy Talley described unusual actions of Jones as a desperate need for attention.
"I don't believe in witchcraft or hocus pocus or anything like that. But he could turn his tongue black and mouth black and he would stick his tongue out and shake his head as though he were possessed," Talley said.

The research team KFile at CNN discovered a clip from the podcast by Kristina Karamo, the Donald Trump-backed secretary of state candidate in Michigan.
"Abortion is really nothing new. The child sacrifice is a very satanic practice, and that's precisely what abortion is. And we need to see it as such," Karamo said in Oct. 2020 episode called "It's Solid Food."
"When people in other cultures, when they engage in child sacrifice, they didn't just sacrifice the child for the sake of bloodshed," Karamo said. "They sacrificed the child cuz they were hoping to get prosperity and that's precisely why people have abortion now. 'Because I'm not ready. I don't wanna have a baby. I don't feel like it. I don't have time. I wanna make more money. I want my freedom.' So you're sacrificing that child hoping to get something out of their death, which is your freedom, your happiness, your prosperity."
Karamo is a community college professor and a devout Christian who serves on the "Right to Life" board.
She went on to explain that hundreds of years ago, people were doing human sacrifices to their gods but really they were demons. To make matters worse, demon possession is not only real, but it's a sexually transmitted disease. According to a later episode, Karamo explained that people can have these "intimate relationships," and the demon can be released from the infected person and then be transferred into the body of the other person. It's unclear if someone can be protected from the transmission of demon possession by a condom.
"If a person has demonic possession — I know it's gonna sound really crazy to me saying that for some people, thinking like what?!" Karamo said in a Sept. 2020 podcast. "But having intimate relationships with people who are demonically possessed or oppressed — I strongly believe that a person opens themselves up to possession. Demonic possession is real."
‘Composed’ children helped one another as panicked adults fled Highland Park gunman: ‘They knew what to do’
Kristen Carlson and her family were late to the Highland Park parade on Independence Day. Once they got to the parade a mass of people started racing toward them, screaming that shots had been fired.
"I'm in my mother's house in Highland Park, in the 200 block of Highland, and I think the shooting was around in the 600 block, so it's just a few blocks away and we're sheltering in place in my mom's house," said Carlson.
"It didn't register to me that they were shots," she sobbed. "But then people started running. All these people were running at us and they were screaming that there's a shooter and to run, and then the sirens were so loud and people running, coming running at us and then we were running, and then there were some people who weren't necessarily from the immediate area and we gave them shelter in the backyard. Eventually, everyone got home. They were picked up."
She explained that she has two older kids who were helping young children reunite with families when they got lost.
"People just ran and they just left their stuff and people were running," she continued. "It was terrifying. You could see the terror on their faces. I know I helped a little boy, Andrew, I helped him get back with his family, and there was another little boy who maybe was 7 and he was by himself, and another little boy of about the same age came over to him and said what's your name? And he said, 'my name is Blake.' And that little boy said, 'Blake, run. Come with me.' The little boy's family took Blake and they ran. They were running and the mom was panicked and looking for him, she didn't know where he was and I don't know where he ended up."
Carlson said she knows the family and that they're taking care of him until he can find his family.
"It struck me that these kids were little like between 7 and 10," she explained. "They were scared. They had terrified looks on their faces but they were so composed because they've been through active shooter drills and they knew what to do. They knew what to do because of moments like now."
