Jury shown video of Alex Jones mocking Sandy Hook parents

The second defamation trial of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is underway in Connecticut as he faces the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that he claimed was a hoax in broadcasts to his millions of viewers.

Last week the court heard three days of testimony from Brittany Paz, an appointed representative of Infowars, Jones’s media company, about its operations — although much of her testimony was evasive. The jury was shown how Jones’s audience grew exponentially following the tragedy and company revenues increased dramatically.

Multiple videos have been shown of Jones’s egregious claims about the shooting, including when he mocked the parents of victims as “crisis actors” and displayed completely false information about the events of the day.

Last month he was ordered to pay nearly $50m to the parents of one of the slain children by a Texas jury following a similar lawsuit. Now, jurors will decide how much he should pay relatives of eight victims and the FBI agent who responded to the scene of the 2012 massacre.

Judge Bellis hears an argument from the plaintiffs’ attorney Alinor Sterling motioning to enforce a limit on questioning her clients’ “supposed political motives” — that this was part of a political vendetta against Jones.

“The arguments regarding the plaintiffs’ supposed political biases are clickbait for Infowars,” says Ms Sterling, adding that the lawsuit is being used to harass the plaintiffs.

Judge Bellis is going to let Jones’s lawyer Norm Pattis cross-examine witnesses on the subject of “exaggerating” their injury for political gain or as part of an anti-gun agenda.

Jones addresses press again before driving off

Alex Jones addresses the press again, saying: “I don’t want to be the Sandy Hook man. It was a small part of what we said and did.”

He admits he “followed 4chan,” other stuff that “turned out to be wrong,” but names the Jussie Smollett case and Iraq WMDs as other stuff he thought was fake.

Jones claims the trial is “all a larger plan” to shut down the free press, and that the lawyers are going to use this model against other people.

Returning to the events at Sandy Hook in 2012, he says “nobody knows” the shooter Adam Lanza’s name, adding: “I am not Adam Lanza. I did not kill the children.”

“They really want to take me out because I’ve been exposing the Great Reset,” says Jones.

Asked if this is a kangaroo court, he responds: “Buddy, it’s all kangaroos and railroads, you’re damn right.”
