Breaking News: Stinking Pigs can be sued (x post)

X posted from GCRA. Dunno, might not be acceptable to RKBA forum purpose, c'est l'vie.

Three parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 filed a defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist who has long claimed the shooting was “completely fake” and a “giant hoax” perpetrated by opponents of the Second Amendment.

Soon after they buried their children, many Sandy Hook parents started to come under fierce attack by conspiracy theorists who have said they are actors in an elaborate scheme to enact stricter gun control laws. The fringe theories still thrive in small forums online but have reached a far greater audience through Mr. Jones, the most vocal propagator {aka stinking pig}.

The suits focus on comments made by Mr. Jones in the past year. In a segment on his radio show called “Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed,” which aired April 2017, Mr. Jones highlighted an interview that Ms. De La Rosa did with CNN after the shooting. While they are standing outside a downtown Newtown building, Mr. Cooper turns his head to face her. During that quick head movement, Mr. Cooper’s nose seems to disappear — evidence, Mr. Jones said, that the interview with Ms. De La Rosa was conducted in a studio. In reality, the glitch is known as a compression artifact, a distortion that is common in video encoding.

A few months later, Mr. Jones was profiled on NBC’s “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,” which brought up his past comments about Sandy Hook. Ms. Kelly also interviewed Mr. Heslin, who recalled seeing his dead son. “I held my son with a bullet hole through his head,”.
But a week later in an Infowars video, Owen Shroyer, who works for the site, argued that it was “not possible” that Mr. Heslin held his dead son because the medical examiner said he showed photographs to the parents to identify their children.
“Will there be a clarification from Heslin or Megyn Kelly?” Mr. Shroyer said. “I wouldn’t hold your breath.”
the next month, Mr. Jones replayed part of that Infowars video on his show. “The stuff I found was they never let them see their bodies,” Mr. Jones said. “That’s kind of what’s weird about this. But maybe they did.”

In a rambling 10-minute response.. , Mr. Jones {oinked} that his lawyers were very confident that the lawsuits were frivolous because his {pig sloppy} efforts to discuss both sides of the issue were misunderstood and misrepresented by major media outlets.

Hahaha. Stinking pig say he's getting a taste of his own medicine. Observe, a worried pig:
PS: most pigs are pleasant & relatively smart animals too, smarter than dogs. Jones an exception:

Didn't think I would offend anyone, didn't think for a moment anyone would step up to defend Jones.
Under more civil circumstances I might apologize, but not on this one.

3. I have never defended Jones and never will.

I was commenting on that wasteland know as Castle Bansalot. You just came here to stir shit.

You are seldom civil so an apology never crossed my mind.

4. I'm whistling thru a ghost town

hack: You just came here to stir shit.

No, thought it would be of interest to pro gun as well as gun control side, thus the x post.
I repeat, didn't think anyone would provide a counterargument to an OP bashing alex jones.
As far as stirring up sh**, you posted this to me:

Whilst your nick is Castle Gunsalot. Your go.
As far 'wasteland' I just checked & RKBA has only a couple >> xxxxx (----Scratched ---)
(on edit: since friday apr 20, to tues 24th, only the 4 on my OP here, have been posted to RBKA).
GCRA has about 10 in the past 2 days.
Maybe Gunsalot should be called Ghost town now.

hack: You are seldom civil so an apology never crossed my mind.

I am almost always civil. It's rare that I am not. Snarky sometimes I suppose.
You apparently conflate polite groveling & being nice & friendly, with civility.
It's our responsibility to be civil to each other.
There is no responsibility to necessarily 'like' someone, or be friends.
Counter punching, within reason, is a normal reaction.
Trump often does not counter punch within reason.

5. Ok

I am not sure exactly what Jones has to do with this forum. He is a certified CT nut that is so far out of the gun owing mainstream that he is beyond irrelevant.

This morning I saw a unicorn on my front lawn nibbling on my rose bushes. It was beautiful.

7. "I am almost always civil. It's rare that I am not."

If so. why post a delusional moron like "AJ"? About a speech issue?
You got 4 comments where you originally posted it...NONE of which are about RKBR...
I'm not sure why you posted a 1A deal and related civil action in a 2A entity.

I'm sure you'll have an abundance of C&P....to equate it...

From my OP: filed a defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist who has long claimed the shooting was “completely fake” and a “giant hoax” perpetrated by opponents of the Second Amendment.
Soon after they buried their children, many Sandy Hook parents started to come under fierce attack by conspiracy theorists who have said they are actors in an elaborate scheme to enact stricter gun control laws.


Anything else you wanna talk about?
