11 years ago today, 20-year old Adam Lanza walked into the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut and shot and killed 26 people, 20 of whom were children between the ages of 6 and 7.
Alex Jones, a popular radio host who has earned hundreds of millions of dollars spouting multiple conspiracy theories regarding the “stolen election”, the “fake moon landings”, and our “government’s involvement in 9/11” among others, began claiming on his show the attack on the school was a hoax, staged by actors, and that no one was really killed. or injured.
Parents of the slain children sued Jones and were ultimately awarded close to $1.5 billion, which they will never recover because Jones filed for bankruptcy shortly after the verdict.
Alex Jones was banned from Twitter for his behavior….until this past Monday when Elon Musk let him back on where Jones can once again spread his lies.
Musk’s company, now called “X”, has suffered severer financial losses lately from fleeing advertisers because of an anti-semitic remark he made a few weeks ago.
Apparently Musk thinks having a deranged psychopath back on his platform will help make up his shortfall.
