According to his attorney, Randall Wilhite, Jones adopts an artificial onscreen persona to engage with his audience, and therefore, judging him by that persona is unfair. Judging Jones based on his broadcasts, Wilhite said, would be like judging Jack Nicholson from his portrayal of the Joker. The judge said she would not allow one video in which JONES and controversial political operative ROGER STONE ranted against SCHIFF and JONES used a line from "TRUE GRIT" that warned a man he was about to be shot and killed, but she did allow another pair of clips to be used at trial. "He is a performance artist". Jones and his ex-wife are fighting over custody of their three kids, who have lived with him since 2015, and jury selection begins on Monday.
The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://atxne.ws/2pGyXLz ) that Kelly Jones described her ex-husband at a recent pretrial hearing in Austin as "not a stable person". "He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin's neck". Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and says he wants Jennifer Lopez to get raped.
"He broadcasts from home", she continued. "The children are there, watching him broadcast", she said.
And so, a Travis County jury will soon be chosen to determine "whether there is a difference between the public and private Alex Jones" as part of this custody case, which is simply mind boggling.
In a court of law an attorney for fake news purveyor and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones says his client is merely "playing a character". He has claimed in the past that the Sandy Hook shooting was a "false-flag", September 11 was an "inside job" done by the government, and he has previously promoted the "Pizzagate" conspiracy with vigor, recently having to apologize on air for some of his actions related to it. Some of the chief villains in Jones's world are Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and philanthropist George Soros.
The former couple has a 14-year-old son and two daughters, ages 9 and 12.
"This case is not about Infowars, and I don't want it to be about Infowars", Naranjo warned the attorneys. "I love you so much, and I didn't mean to get you up here, sweetheart, and tell people how much I love you, but you're so handsome, and you're a good little knight who's going to grow up, I know, to be a great fighter against the enemy".
