Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Reveres Trump Like Hitler — Trashes Statue Of Liberty

A new profile of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones warns that he reveres President Trump like Hitler — and Jones admits he considers the Statue of Liberty a “symbol of propaganda.”

“When Jones talks about the president, it sounds as if he were talking about some Hitler-like Führer,” Der Spiegel reports. “He refers to the first few weeks of the Trump presidency as a ‘total victory.’”

In his interview with Der Spiegel, Jones said that he was in regular contact with Trump and “feeds him ideas.”

“Trump and I have talked several times since the election,” Jones said, “about freedom and our common goal to destroy our enemies.”

Together with right-wing nationalist websites like Breitbart News, Gateway Pundit and LifeZette, which also have good access to the White House, Jones sees himself as part of a right-wing front that aims to break the power of the traditional media.

Jones also trashed the Statue of Liberty.

“We should stop worshipping it and bending down to every Third World population that shows up with TB and leprosy,” he told the German news outlet.
