Dude! She is a kid. You can't seriously think what AJ and InfoWars did here was okay?

She was greeted and then swore at and flipped off the reporter.

I understand why people don't want to talk to AJ because of fear of being taken out of context but that fear is unfounded, AJ puts up hours of footage and very rarely edits interviews.

Reporters have the right to ask protestors questions or even people walking near a protest to get their opinion. AJ is trying to engage with the protestors in good faith, you may diagree with some of his views but his reporter here was polite and appropriate.

Why are kids at protests anyway?

Because they will inherit the Earth after us if conservatives don't succeed in making it uninhabitable.

I love how all the Conspiracy Nutters are all bothered about a thing that's not even happening.

Par for the course I guess.

"If someone is at a protest, then I don't see why they can't be asked a question."

No one is saying that he doesn't have the right to ask her questions.  Calling Jones a bully and irresponsible asshole for trying to make her response go viral is not saying he doesn't have the right to ask questions.

Your concern trolling works better when you actually pay attention. It was more about his snowflake response. The alt-right would crumble without their victimhood status.

You have a tendency to leave out key bits of information in this thread. Like how she was greeted as a little boy. Given that she's obviously a girl, I think calling him a fucking idiot is pretty much right on the money. Flipping him off was just a bonus. AJ then whining about it would mostly just be hilarious if it wasn't for the fact that there are some ridiculous creatures out there who actually take him seriously.

Reporters have a right to go out on the street and try to strike up conversations with random people, and those people also have the right to tell the reporters to fuck off.  See how that works? It's a quite an elegant system.

And yes, our own president is known to take the rantings of professional frothy conspiracy mongers at face value. I remember thinking it outrageous when the Reagans retained a fortune teller as a personal advisor, but this is something else entirely.

Which came first... the crazy, or the drinking of lead?

Lead is fine. It's the fluoride you really have to watch.

As soon as I read this:
Quote
According to the CEH, which purchased the samples tested directly from the InfoWars online shop, “People who take the Myco-ZX product would ingest more than six times the daily limit for lead under California law.” Those taking Caveman True Paleo would ingest twice the Californian daily lead limit.

I saw this coming:
Quote
Since publication of the CEH study showing potentially dangerous levels of lead in two of the company’s supplements, it seems Infowars has taken the liberty of deleting the articles we linked to which showed Infowars had relied on CEH’s findings in the past as a basis for articles. (We’ve replaced those broken links with cached versions.)

Both links now redirect to an explanatory post on the nature of California’s Prop 65 warnings—with a considerable amount of (typo-riddled) text devoted to explaining the proposition’s harsh restrictions on lead contamination:

The Proposition 65 limit of 0.5 mcg / day for lead is far below the amount of lead found naturally in the ingredients and food around you that growns (sic) on clean, non-contaminated soils. Various countries and safety organizations have reviewed known studies and science to produce guidelines on the levels of heavy metals that can be consumed dailiy (sic) without causing harm that take that fact into account.

Alex Jones has predicted Hollywood coverup of pedophiles for years, as can be seen by the Kevin Spacey situation:
