Opinion: Alex Jones is hit where it hurts…

Alex Jones & Infowars’ parent company must pay 14 family members of 8 Sandy Hook Elementary School victims, plus an FBI agent who responded to the scene of the 2012 massacre, which killed 20 first graders and 6 educators, a collective total of $965 MILLION” (Ali Velshi, 12.10.2022).

The Infowars and conspiracy news peddle Alex Jones has finally been fined in the Courts. After years of litigation and lack of accountability for his actions. In the Sandy Hook defamation case, Alex Jones is now owning $965 million or close to a billion dollars. That’s a huge debt to pay and he got to cough up money from now on.

He better hope his followers and that the Republican Party helps him out. His been a part of the rise of Trump and Trumpism. They have been connected and his one of them. Even accepted the gay-frogs and all other crazy stories that Jones has peddled over the years.

The conspiracies around Sandy Hook school-massacre has now backfired. Certainly, there is plenty of other stories and such, which could been seen in similar light. It isn’t like Sandy Hook is one off. No, it is just one of the most notorious ones of his. This is staple and part of his business model.

InfoWars now has to find either a 1 billion dollars or they have to get supporters to fund this. If not his going bankrupt and his media house is over. Alex Jones have created this all by himself and cannot blame others.

Today’s court verdict is important, because Jones got nowhere to hide now. Jones got to be responsible and be able to pay them. This judgement will follow him for the rest of his life. He will not able to run away from it.

We can expect that Jones will beg his audience for funds and buy his vitamins or special packages for dooms-day from the InfoWars merchandize store. Alex Jones now has to answer the families and the victims of Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones cannot just run away from the tab. InfoWars are surely in trouble and all his conspiracies can now be tested in the Courts. I am sure the lizard people will not respond, but others might. Especially, all of the people who has been scorned and mocked by him over the years.

This got to hurt and sting… he needs a new hustle and quickly. Especially, since he has to pay this vast verdict to the families. It got to be detrimental to his business and his livelihood. Peace.

InfoWars is sued for Copyright Infringement for using Pepe the Frog!

The infamous media-house, syndicated right-wing conspiracy wheeling machine of a so-called news-organization, called the InfoWars with Alex Jones as their head. He is now sued by the cartoonist behind Pepe the Frog. The one behind it is the artist Matt Furie, who has made a famous meme and also copyrighted the rights of usage of the Pepe the Frog. It is within that bound that the artist and his lawyers has sued Infowars.

InfoWars has made a poster with the frog together with Donald Trump, Milo Yiannopolous, Roger Stone and also Ann Coulter. With the slogan on “Make America Great Again”. The slogan of Trump during his campaign. That everyone knows and isn’t that strange for a right-wing page to sell posters with that, but what is special is that in the midst of this they have put Pepe the Frog in red. This poster was sold for $ 17.76 each, meaning that InfoWars are earning money on other people’s craft, because even other hatred groups have been using the frog, as they wanted to make it as sign of being deplorable’s.

Even the Alt-Right hate group write this on their page about the cartoon: “Pepe the Frog is a cartoon character that has become a popular Internet meme (often referred to as the “sad frog meme” by people unfamiliar with the name of the character). The character first appeared in 2005 in the on-line cartoon Boy’s Club” (Anti-Defamation League). So clearly, the hatred and the usage of it, has spiraled to a level where the groups who Furie doesn’t associate with are using his craft in their missions.

Therefore, because of that, even Alex Jones picked it up and started selling it on his online-shop, who sells anything to trade some ill-gotten gains to his media-house. So InfoWars is one of many, who has misused the cartoon in their propaganda and their internet trolling of people. They are now throwing shade on Furie, even Jones has said its fraudulent today on his show. That is because he cannot stomach to pay damages and stand for decision to trade posters with the cartoon on.

The ironic thing, is that no-one has asked permission or the usage of it, and these groups who hasn’t asked to use the cartoon. The publishing and the use of it in a form and messages that counters the artist believe, political stance or even decency. Anyone want to avoid that and Furie is right to fight for his craft, in court and in public. So his cartoon isn’t becoming racist, but a public joy and fun cartoon.

Instead, it is misused in the wrong narrative, we can hope the Court let the artist win the case and let InfoWars pay for damages, so Furie can continue to sue people misusing his cartoon without permission in the near future. So, that is can be associated with other people, than the ones who are White Supremacists and the racists of America.

It seems little and not so important, but the artist and his rights should be hold, he should get this and bag-it, just for the sense of his rights to decide where his craft goes and who can use it for profit. That is natural. That is ordinary.

InfoWars, like ADL, never asked and just using it in their favor. Not considering the implication of the creator or the ones who made the cartoon. That is something they should have and Furie has the right to sue them. So he can get his cartoon back and get it within the will of the creator. Who then decides who is allowed to trade and to publish the cartoon.

Pepe the Frog, might seem like just another meme, but this here is serious. Peace.
