The best way to deal with appalling show-offs is usually to starve them off the attention they so badly crave, but sometimes we're confronted with bullshit and nonsense on such a nuclear scale that we can't be quiet.
So, InfoWars host Alex Jones, who currently owes $1.5 billion to the families of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school mass shooting for the years he spent spreading lies about the tragedy, is back at his schtick again, this time claiming that bands are required to "reject Jesus Christ" and "pledge to Lucifer" in order to secure record deals.
Apparently this applies to anyone offered a national television show also.
I mean, where do you start?
"Before you’re offered a national TV show, before you’re offered a major record deal, they get you in a room and they say, ‘Listen, we want you to reject Jesus Christ and pledge yourself to Lucifer'," Jones maintains.
"You’re sitting there in the meeting in a high rise building around an office table, and you’re like, ‘Are you kidding?’ And they’re like, ‘No, we’re very serious.’ I tell viewers that story, you know, 20 years ago, and they go, ‘No, that’s insane.’ No, that really happened.”
Jones says he has conducted “off the record conversation” with record label bosses who, he says, admitted that his theory is true.
As yet, no major record label executive has yet to break ranks to back up Jones' wild claims. However, in a tongue-in-cheek post on Twitter, former R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills retweeted a report of Jones' claim with the words "Can confirm."
Can confirm. https://t.co/4lSlINgEsqFebruary 27, 2023
