'It's like 1984': US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones in bizarre rant against Bilderberg Group on BBC1's Andrew Neil show
US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones lost his temper in spectacular style on live television on Saturday, accusing the Bilderberg Group of being “heavily involved in the EU plan”, which he described as a “Nazi plan” and shouting “Freedom will not stop” repeatedly to bemused guests.
Jones had been invited to appear on BBC1’s Sunday Politics show alongside Times columnist David Aaronovitch to discuss the Bilderberg Conference which took place this weekend. During his outburst, Jones said that some of his reporters had been turned away, “but they didn’t turn me back and I was told this because they don’t wanna make a stink.”
Despite presenter Andrew Neil’s best attempts at preventing Jones from talking over Aaronovitch with: “You are not going to dominate this, he gets to speak too - it’s not your own radio show”, and “Could you let him finish”, Jones still continued his outburst of conspiracy theories. At one point Jones interrupted the debate with: “We’re in a police state, it’s like 1984, you guys just want to normalise it!” to which Aaronovitch asked: “Alex, if it’s a police state how come you’re here?”
“Do you think the BBC is part of the Bilderberg group?” asked Neil, to which Jones replied: “Well, you know, Winston Smith did work here, I mean come on Eric Blair worked here and that’s what he said it was.”
Jones had become increasingly aggravated and disruptive as the interview progressed. At one point, he shouted: “Hey listen! I’m here to warn people, you keep telling me to shut up, this isn’t a game OK. Our government the US is building FEMA camps."
His rant culminated in him chanting: “Take them away. Infowars.com. Liberty is rising. Liberty is rising. Freedom will not stop. You will not stop freedom. You will not stop the republic. Humanity is awakening. Infowars.com”
A smiling Neil ended the show by saying: “You (Mr Jones) are the worst person I've ever interviewed. David (Aaronovitch), thank you for being with us”, whilst laughing and shaking his head.
