This is 100% real. Alex Jones, who is known for spreading conspiracy theories without any supporting evidence (Pizzagate, anyone?), dressed up as a “gay frog” on his show.
Jones’ new persona, which was described on his Infowars site as him “coming out” as a gay frog, is meant to push yet another conspiracy theory that made him famous. According to Forbes, Jones’ theory posits that the government is using chemicals to turn people and frogs gay.
What do frogs and people have in common besides occasionally wearing top hats? As Jones has claimed, both are supposedly the victims of so-called “estrogen mimickers” being placed in juice boxes, water bottles, and tap water to “feminize” people. Writing for Salon, Alex Seitz-Wald quoted Jones as saying, “The reason there are so many gay people now is because it’s a chemical warfare operation. I have the government documents where they said they’re going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so people don’t have children.” Jones has described tap water as a “gay bomb” and has said “I don’t like ’em putting chemicals in the water that TURN THE FREAKIN’ FROGS GAY! Do you understand that? I’m sick of being social engineered, it’s not funny!”

“Look at me, I’m a gay frog! I’m so cool,” Jones said as he literally hopped into his position on the stage. “I’ll never have children and I’m sterilized, but the media says I’m totally cool. I’m a gay frog!“
Jones specifically points out a chemical called “Atrazine.”
“Thanks to Atrazine, there will be no more frogs, but we’re gay, so it’s cool,” Jones added.
This is a stunt unlike anything like we’ve seen from Jones, which may mean he’s even more desperate for views after his accounts were banned from most social media platforms. It may also just be the next evolution of Jones’ career, since he has admitted that his show is based on entertainment as opposed to solid facts. In fact, his lawyer actually called Jones a “performance artist.”
If this is performance art, it’s some of the worst I’ve ever seen… and that’s really saying something.
So, if you know anyone who needs to get away from controversial political discussions and bad news, feel free to show them Alex Jones dressed as a frog and jumping around. It’s actually pretty funny.
