In the dark, mysterious world of right-wing conspiracy nuts, the Illuminati is the ultimate Them — an amorphous group, never really identified, that runs the world from the shadows under the control of Lucifer himself. And it usually includes pretty much all rich, powerful people. But not Donald Trump, for some unspecified reason. Well now Alex Jones has proof that Trump is not part of the Illuminati:
On Infowars radio today, Jones told listeners that the supposed globalist regime running the world are supportive of abortion rights because “it’s their whole cult, it’s their whole system.” Trump showing support for March for Life attendees, Jones derived, erases all doubt that Trump is a member of the Illuminati, a supposed secret society that colludes to run the world.
“When you go after that like he’s doing, there is no way he’s with the Illuminati. There’s no way he’s with this system. There is no way, no way, and he’d be doing this. Zero. Zero,” Jones said.Jones went on to explain that both he and “the churches” already had a gut feeling that Trump was not part of the secret cabal ruling the world, before incorrectly retelling the biblical tale of King David.
“And of course my gut tells me that, too. And the churches, their gut tells them that. The real churches,” Jones said. “That’s why they, ‘Oh, he likes hot women when he’s’—most of that’s made up. Whatever. King David has his best friend killed so he can have his wife. He repented of it later. He did it out of the flesh. He wasn’t inherently evil.”
I’ve always found it quite weird that Jones would embrace Trump, who is precisely the sort of person he has always railed against. He’s rich, influential, loves government intrusions into our lives, has business interests all over the world (thus making him an evil “globalist” in Jones’ parlance). But for some reason, Jones takes his pseudo-populist rhetoric seriously, or at least pretends to. The only explanation I can think of is that Jones, like Trump, is simply a con man who knows how to get attention, which brings more money.
