Alex Jones’ Bizarre Rant on Transgender People


Alex Jones went on an absolutely deranged rant against transgender people on his radio show a few days ago. He went on and on about transgender people puking and shitting all over the walls of…hell, I don’t know where or what he’s talking about. It’s just unhinged:

JONES: They’re saying in high schools, in junior highs now, they’re going to have – men can decide to be in the women’s bathroom if they want. You’re like ‘well big deal, that’s their gender.’ It’s all about these fake rights that don’t exist versus my basic liberty being taken. It’s not that I’m against people that think they’re a woman or a man or whatever. I don’t even care. Give me a break. It’s not even on my radar screen. I could care less. I care about people.

[…]

I dealt at Access TV with a famous Austin transvestite, who died a few years ago, who they’re talking about building a statue to, going in the bathroom, men and women, and vomiting all over the walls when they would do whatever they were doing in there. I mean, I’m talking about several transvestites cramming their way into the men’s bathroom, the women’s bathroom. You’d go in there to comb your hair before you went on air, there they were. And they finally got thrown out of there because of it and said it was because of discrimination because they were transvestites. No. It was because whatever they were injecting in there made them throw up all over – I mean imagine every week throw up all over the walls. And then I had an office by this guy. The bad luck is I had an office where we would look down, turned out he lived around the block, and I would have to watch him every day in the cheerleader outfit, through my office window, on the air, doing deals and stuff in cars and stumbling around everywhere. And then I’m not a trendy because I don’t bow down. I had to go in there store, there was a grocery store next door… you know with crap dripping down his leg, stinking. And I’m supposed to just go ‘oh, you’re a trendy with rotten teeth hanging out of your head, and a weird bald head, you’re in a dress. Here, here, here, here, please, please more diarrhea running down your leg.

[…]

I don’t want my daughters growing up in a country where some transvestite comes walking into the thing hopped out of their brain on drugs vomiting and crapping all over the place.

I’d say your daughters are damaged enough being raised by a lunatic like you.

    Sounds like he doesn’t like junkies. Remind me again how this is related to Transgender people?

    Remind me again how [not liking junkies] is related to Transgender people?

    Easy! “It’s all Obama’s fault.”

    This is just so garbled up with the idea of “fake rights” that it almost sounds like Jones is complaining that junkies who are not really transgendered are putting on women’s clothing so they can get away with disgusting behavior — sort of like using crutches or a wheelchair when you don’t need them in order to commit crimes with impunity. People are just so soft-hearted, now they’ll give you a pass. Right.

    Or maybe he has some other point. Sounds to me like something from his past is still bugging him.

    I’ve noticed Alex Jones has been getting more mentions over here. I’m starting to wonder about his popularity. He certainly seems like the natural archetype for the wingnuts of today.

  5. regexp says

    Its clear he has never met a transgendered person in his life. He seems to be obsessed with transvestites and his bad experiences with druggies. Which in showbiz – is most of them.

  6. says

    The first person Alex refers to is probably “Leslie” who was a well known homeless transvestite regularly seen in the Austin entertainment district. Leslie was known to have mental issues and had drawn the ire of many local business owners where problems had occurred. None of these problems were because he dressed as a woman. In fact, he was mostly a welcome “attraction” and he took full advantage of his celebrity.

    Other than a smattering of followers, Alex Jones is considered a joke around Austin too.

    You’re like ‘well big deal, that’s their gender.’ It’s all about these fake rights that don’t exist versus my basic liberty being taken.

    I have to wonder what liberty he thinks he’s losing here specifically. Ah, what am I saying? This is Alex Jones we’re talking about here. It’s not fair to expect him to make sense.

    It’s not that I’m against people that think they’re a woman or a man or whatever. I don’t even care. Give me a break. It’s not even on my radar screen. I could care less. I care about people.

    It’s so far off his radar screen that he’s decided to rant about it.

    The statement “I care about people,” in context, seems like a suggestion that trans people don’t count.

    I occasionally start feeling bad about making fun of a guy who seems so much like a paranoid schizophrenic, but then I get a reminder of what an asshole he is that I just stop caring. Ironically, Jones has no issues with decrying schizophrenics as evil either: http://leavingalexjonestown.blogspot.com/2009/04/jones-vs-schizophrenia.html

    What I’m getting from this is if I meet someone who goes to church and takes heroin that would mean Christianity should be banned.

    Sounds like he had a relationship with a transvestite junkie that didn’t work out.

    The bad luck is I had an office where we would look down, turned out he lived around the block, and I would have to watch him every day in the cheerleader outfit, through my office window, on the air, doing deals and stuff in cars and stumbling around everywhere.

    …And day after day after day I had to stand at my window, just out of sight, staring down at him being so gross and rude and freakish. Sometimes, he’d be late, and I’d be forced to wait, wait, wait for him to appear. I almost lost my job because his inability to follow a schedule made me late for work! And I just know that he knew he was keeping me on the edge; my insides burning for his filth. Disgusting!

  11. says

    I HAD to watch him in his cheerleader outfit! EVERY DAY! For HOURS at a time! No choice!

    Jones does unwittingly raise an interesting point about the overlap we often see between marginalized communities, and the (going purely from anecdotal evidence and experience) tendency of people who are marginalized in one way to end up in the hard drugs culture or the underground sex industry, placing them even more firmly outside mainstream society, and at greater risk for, well, everything bad that happens in these social strata. I wonder what causes that? Surely it couldn’t have anything to do with people like Jones who care about people (You know, real people, the kind that don’t try to claim fake rights).

  12. DaveL says

    So… men who dress in women’s clothing shouldn’t be allowed to use the bathrooms allocated to either sex because they vomit and get diarrhea. Or something. I give up – I’m stumped.

  13. Artor says

    @BronzeDog #8
    I’ve been wondering about that as well. I’ve been aware of Jones for some time, but it seems like he’s being quoted a lot lately. Did he go off the deep end recently, or has he always been like this? If he was always a raving wingnut, what’s new? Why is he so much more public now than he was a few years ago? I’m curious, but I’m not actually sure I want to know.

    I couldn’t stand to read very far, but this particular nonsense jumped out at me also. He’s losing his liberty, as a cis man, to go into a public ladies bathroom and know that he is the only AMAB (assigned male at birth) person who is in there? WTF! That makes no sense. What the hell ‘lilberty’ is he talking about. The liberty to make all the rules about all the bathrooms?

    Presumably Alex has been using the men’s room all of these years and what happens in the women’s room has no effect on him personally.

    I’m a cis woman. The biggest public restroom annoyance I have is kids who crawl under the partitions into my stall (quite rare) and moms talking to their young kids about their toileting behavior (quite common). This latter noise source sometimes impinges on my ability to relax and defecate. And yet I cope. Trans people in the bathroom are not a worry. Come on in and be welcome.

    If we want to have a useful debate about bathroom etiquette, perhaps we could instead address the issue of whether it is ever acceptable to use the handicapped stall.

    What makes me laugh is that public bathrooms in Syria, a far more conservative country, are not sex segregated. You wait in a mixed-gender line, and when the next stall comes open, you go in, pull the curtain, and do your business. Even the head-to-toe-covered religious women are right there with you, and don’t appear to be overly bothered by it.

    Why is [Alex Jones] so much more public now than he was a few years ago? I’m curious, but I’m not actually sure I want to know.

    If I had to guess I’d say it’s because people like Limbaugh, O’Rielly and others of the old guard have become too boring and sane for the right- wing now.

  17. says

    I think Jones’ recent surge in media attention began when John King gave him airtime on CNN. Obstensibly, it was because King wanted to hear Jones explain why he’d called for King to be deported, but Jones went into an insane tirade about “murder pills” and “1776 rising again”. Since the, the medi has been giving him a lot more attention.

  18. Nemo says

    Yeah, I’ve kind of wondered if Ed just discovered Alex Jones recently. He’s a rich source of material, for sure.

  19. escuerd says

    d. c. wilson @22,

    I think that was Piers Morgan who had him on. I’d certainly read about Alex Jones before that, but that was the first time I heard or saw him. I don’t know why, but I was actually surprised that his mannerisms were every bit as insane as the content of what he says.

    I did notice a sharp uptick in people talking about him after the Boston bombing, and people noted that he immediately tweeted that it was a false flag operation. At the very least, it seems that more people are mocking him, which is good. I just hope it’s not a side effect of more people taking him seriously.

  20. says

    Escured:

    You’re right, it was Piers Morgan. My mistake.

    I doubt many people would have paid attention to his Boston Bombong tweets if it were for the notoriety the CNN appearance. After all he’d been screaming that 9/11 was an inside job for over a decade no one outside his insane circle of fans cared.

  21. Ichthyic says

    I think it’s malfunctioning, captain. Shall I fire my phaser at it?

    No, only James T Kirk himself could talk that thing down.

  22. busterggi says

    Alex should really write this stuff down – he could be the next William Burroughs.

  23. blf says

    [O]nly James T Kirk himself could talk that thing down.

    Or the guy in Dark Star talking the bomb in not explo—— Oh, ah, er, yeah, Captain Kirk! Calling Captain Kirk! To the Bridge, please…
