Alex Jones and his dangerous Infowars platform were permanently banned from Twitter yesterday, with Jones’ benign insults against CNN reporter Oliver Darcy finally doing the job that his xenophobic rhetoric and smear campaigns against the parents of murdered children should have a long time ago. Now, with literally no mainstream social media platforms with which to stream his lunacy, Jones should see his star slowly drift into irrelevancy in much the same manner as Milo Yiannopoulos’ did following his own ban. But, before we forget Jones entirely, let us just take one last peek at how things are going for him in the wake of his ban. Just fine, we imagine.


Oh. Oh wow.

In the above video, you’ll find Jones in a donkey mask, adopting the rasp of a cartoon demon as he enlightens us on “Operation 666,” which we’re sure is definitely a real thing. “On the sixth of August we banned Infowars on 27 platforms!” he screeches. “And now on September sixth we banned you from Twitter! And on October sixth, we will destroy your president and set fire to every major U.S. city and have our Communist forces launch their attack while Silicon Valley sits in their bunkers in the middle of the pacific ocean in New Zealand!”


So, you know, we have that to look forward to.

Wait, there’s more? There’s more.


In another clip captured by Twitter user @classiclib3ral, Jones pulls a fast one by revealing that he’s no donkey. Actually, he’s a lizard, or, as he puts it, “the soulless psychopath that will suck your soul to hell long before you ever realize our power!” Oh, okay.

In the guise of the demons his brittle brain has painstakingly conjured after swallowing one too many of his snake oil supplements, Jones declares war “on your genetics, your soul, and your family!”


The lunatic finishes up by urging you to “accept your death in HELL,” so, yeah, Alex Jones is doing just fine without Twitter.
