Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has joined the ranks of other right-wing commentators in raining condemnation down on the left after the recent Capitol Hill baseball shooting.
Jones said all liberals should swear loyalty to Donald Trump or be stripped of their citizenship.
“I’m tired of all this hateful, dangerous rhetoric,” said Jones on his show “InfoWars.” “These people are either loyal to Trump or they’re against us.”
Jones recently appeared as a guest on Megyn Kelly’s poorly-rated NBC show. (The show drew lower ratings than a rerun of “60 Minutes.”) His appearance caused companies like J.P. Morgan Chase to pull their ads.
However, Jones isn’t the only right-wing commentator to have a hysterical reaction to James T. Hodgkinson’s terrorist attack.
Erick Erickson, founder of Red State, said he’d given up on the United States. He also called the left “American ISIS.”
“The only escape is dissolution,” said Erickson on the web site The Resurgent. “We should part ways if we cannot have federalism. We should start talking about secession. If both sides have decided that every hill is a hill to die on and control of Washington means reward for their friends and punishment of their enemies, we need to end Washington. The way to do that is end the union.”
