I have no doubt you all know who Alex Jones is and are familiar with his Infowars media network. Infowars is undoubtedly the most successful and therefore dominant Alternative News network today. In fact, Infowars is becoming almost borderline mainstream news not too dissimilar to Fox News.
If you’ve been following Infowars for a long time like myself you may have also noticed the sudden shift in productions quality, staffing and unfortunately alongside these things, the narrative. There is much to discuss on the subject of Infowars, however, this article is not the place for it, we are specifically talking about Alex Jones and Pizzagate.
Alex Jones Questions Pizzagate
There is no doubt that when the controversial #Pizzagate conspiracy first arose from the depths of Reddit, Alex Jones was pushing that it was ‘Real’ and ‘should be investigated’.
The following video clarifies this quite distinctly.
Alex Jones Apologises For Talking About Pizzagate
A few months later and Alex has done a full switch back on his original stance and apologises to James Alefantis. Although if you were to believe the Mainstream media you’d believe Alex was totally dismissing the Pizzagate conspiracy, this is not the case. Here is Alex discussing his change of stance on Pizzagate:
It’s clear that Jones has been forced to retract his statements about James Alefantis and not because as Jones would like us to believe, that he ‘realised Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong were all a distraction’, no, the reason is because Alex Jones and his Infowars network was under threat, we have to remember Alefantis has been described as one of the most powerful people in Washington.
One has to wonder how the owner of a Pizza joint can rise to be such an influential figure in a place like Washington, but that is an entirely separate discussion.
We’ve made it quite clear over the last couple years that we believe Infowars is now and has been for some time ‘Controlled Opposition’, this switch on his stance on Pizzagate only strengthens this theory.
The biggest ‘red flag’ in all of this is the level of intervention taken place, if you remember back at the beginning of the year following Ben Swann’s coverage on Pizzagate we saw his entire career destroyed within days, his social media presence closed, his ‘Reality Check’ program redacted and ended, he has now returned to being your standard news anchor reporting on stolen kittens and runaway brides on CBS46.
Now with Alex Jones making a public statement apologising about Pizzagate and all that he has said, even laying into many of his own audience calling them sheep and trolls, all this says one thing and that is that the theories and names mentioned were exceptionally close to the mark, maybe not 100% accurate, but closest enough for many people to become a little restless.
What better way to dismiss a conspiracy once and for all than by getting the Worlds most well known and successful conspiracy theorist ‘Alex Jones’ to apologise and all but dismiss Pizzagate.
Mainstream Media have predictably jumped straight on it, with many applauding even Alex for swallowing his pride and knowing ‘when to do the right thing’; which is of course in their opinion, apologise and see the light that Pizzagate is just fantastical conspiratorial nonsense entirely fabricated by mentally unstable minds somewhere in the dark dungeons of Reddit and 4Chan.
Then just to really confuse everyone, just days after his apology Alex tweeted the following:

As I said before, Alex doesn’t entirely dismiss Pizzagate, but he didn’t need to. All he had to do was backtrack on certain key aspects, for example, the ‘Comet Ping Pong’ link and most importantly the Alefantis connection. Anything else he states is irrelevant, all the mainstream press have headlined that Alex Jones admits he was wrong on Pizzagate which satisfies the majority population.
It is worth mentioning though that his audience don’t seem best pleased with any of this, just a quick scan through his Youtube and Twitter comments and you’ll see many are left wondering what on earth Alex is playing at:
Whether Jones knows it or not, he is most definitely ‘Controlled Opposition’.
