Things are tough over at crackpot conspiracy site InfoWars — so tough that fruitcake in chief Alex Jones is using every possible gimmick in his limited arsenal to sell useless nutritional products to keep the lights on.
In what must go down as one of the most reprehensible posts the site has ever published, Jones uses a supposed viral video that proves Michelle Obama “is a man” to lure readers into buying “bone broth” supplements that give you the strength of a caveman. Here was the headline:
In the video segment, Jones reviews ludicrous footage of the former First Lady that he claims is going viral because it shows her to be “a tranny” (and of course, it doesn’t). Jones claims he wasn’t the “progenitor of the video”, and is simply “asking questions”, because “in America, it’s still OK to ask questions”. If you can stomach it, here’s the repulsively offensive “report” that Jones urges his viewers to save because of Deep State players/reptiles/aliens looking to censor it etc etc:
If you reached the end of the segment, you’ll notice that it skips quickly to an equally idiotic ad promoting Info Wars ‘Caveman’ supplement — a paleo diet concoction with “bone broth” and “seven primal superfoods” created by the geniuses at InfoWars that promises to make you as strong as a caveman (who according to Jones were as “strong as a modern Olympic athlete). Of course none of the InfoWars diet supplements are approved by the FDA or been submitted to scientific testing. But then he’s selling to morons who think there is a government conspiracy to cover up Michelle Obama’s true gender identity. The potent mixture of extreme racism, disgusting sexism and, to borrow the liberal term, toxic masculinity, Jones is keeping his idiotic site alive by hawking this crap to his followers who no doubt believe they’ll be able to run up hills and beat up liberals after ingesting the powdered drink that sells for $41.96.
It is worth remembering that InfoWars was once given press access to the White House because president Trump is apparently a fan of the site. Which says it all really.
