Edit: Nevermind, there's the video.

I heard the guy's a local actor?

That explains why most of the videos of this on YouTube are on right-wing channels and carry headlines like, "Alt-Left Attacks Alex Jones in Seattle!" and "Alex Jones Attacked With Boiling Coffee On The Streets Of Seattle" and "Literal Goblin Creature Pours Coffee On Alex Jones."

I just edited my original post to remove the video. I don't want to give any more traffic to these sham YouTube channels.

I don't know. I don't believe that guy was hired by Alex Jones. Some musician friends of mine actually know him, and they're insisting he's a genuine lefty.

It's still funny to accuse Alex Jones of staging a false flag operation though!

I've watched his show, every 15 minutes he hawks bullshit.  In between, about 90% of the time he's either a) Lying or b) Wildly speculating.....

Don't forget that even if there is some sort of basis of his speculation, it is often presented as if somebody with secret knowledge told him just like Trump claimed during the election to know cops with all the magical answers to problems.

That too.  With regard to 'boiling hot coffee,'  This is Seattle.  Seattle people have good coffee.  They don't drink 'boiling hot coffee' from McDonalds.....

Alex Jones buddy and InfoWars contributor Paul Joseph Watson has had all his videos demonetized by YouTube.
Promptly quits YouTube.
I guess he was only in it for the money anyways then....

BTW, the name seems to be a bit of a misnomer; I didn't see any violence in the video.

The headline says all I could say

https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2017/08/23/joe-arpaio-thanks-conspiracy-theorist-alex-jones-getting-his-story-donald-trump-who-reportedly/217740

Joe Arpaio thanks conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for getting his story to Donald Trump, who is reportedly poised to pardon the former sheriff

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio appeared on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show to thank Jones, his staff, and Roger Stone for influencing President Donald Trump into potentially issuing Arpaio a pardon following his recent criminal conviction.

A U.S. District Court judge convicted Arpaio of criminal contempt of court in July. He faces up to six months in jail for his refusal to comply with a court order that said he could no longer direct the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office to engage in racially discriminatory practices against Latinos. Arpaio was defeated in his re-election bid for a seventh term in November.

CNN.com reported today that “the White House has prepared the paperwork for President Trump to pardon former sheriff Joe Arpaio when he makes the final decision to do so.” During an August 22 rally in Arpaio’s home state of Arizona, Trump suggested a pardon was imminent, telling the crowd, "I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine. Okay? But I won’t do it tonight because I don’t want to cause any controversy. Is that okay? All right? But Sheriff Joe can feel good."

So Joe has his pardon but still a conviction on his record correct?

Quote
Does a presidential pardon expunge or erase the conviction for which the pardon was granted?

No.  Expungement is a judicial remedy that is rarely granted by the court and cannot be granted within the Department of Justice or by the President.

That seems to be correct.

I predict in 500 years there will be a new word in the English language, "libtriger".  I also predict it will eventually come to mean something along the lines of "having sensible and normal reaction to an awful situation".

Or maybe "esjadubyootrig".
