It's about time this crazy conspiracy theorist, right wing troll buddy of Trump was wiped out financially, not only for what he's said about the Sandy Hook tragedy but for his lies about the Parkman High School massacre.
Parents of two children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School attacks filed defamation lawsuits on Monday against right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones, who has questioned the authenticity of the 2012 shooting that left 26 dead, including 20 children.Leonard Pozner and his former wife, Veronique De La Rosa, parents of Noah Pozner, and Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse Lewis, are seeking more than $1 million in damages in separate lawsuits.
The two defamation cases were filed in Austin, Texas, where Jones lives and has espoused claims that the massacre was "a giant hoax" and "that the whole thing was fake" — staged by the federal government, which hired professional actors for the purposes of undermining Second Amendment rights.
"This conspiracy theory, which has been pushed by InfoWars and Mr. Jones since the day of the shooting, alleges that the Sandy Hook massacre did not happen, or that it was staged by the government and concealed using actors, and that the parents of the victims are participants in a horrifying cover-up," the plaintiffs said in their suits.
