Note: Alex Jones has since pulled videos of his broadcast on the subject off of InfoWars and his YouTube page. Jones has a problem remaining open and honest about his past claims, apparently. Someone did save the video to re-post for posterity.
We’ve heard a lot of ridiculous things about where LGBT people come from and what they’re capable of (see the slideshow below), but Alex Jones’ claim that the government is creating gays with chemicals takes conspiracy theories to a new level.
The InfoWars radio host grabbed the spotlight in recent weeks after slamming CNN’s Piers Morgan for making comments against pro-gun advocates and he even went so far as to try to get him deported back to the UK. Now Jones is raising eyebrows again after a series of clips from several years ago began to recirculate on the Internet this week.
In the videos he claims the government is “encouraging homosexuality with chemicals so that people don’t have children” and that he has the documentation to prove it. Upon cutting open a juice box to show the plastic membrane supposedly filled with said chemicals he concludes, “After [little boys] are done drinking your juices, [they’re] ready to go out and have a baby… [they’re] ready to put together a garden of roses… [they’re] ready to go put lipstick on…”
Jones is also worried about MSG in Kettle Chips and fluoride in spring water.
In another clip he states that troublesome chemicals are seeping into water ways and even turning male frogs into female frogs. Research has shown that chemicals found in common weed killers have been proven to “feminize” male frogs, but it is not clear if the same effects could take place with humans.
While we’re still waiting for experts to come up with a definitive answer as to why people are gay or straight (and we may never know), we’ve never come across anyone — other than Jones — who thinks it is due to juice boxes. What do you think?
