After a long weekend that saw everyone from YouTube to Facebook to Pinterest to, uh, YouPorn delete his content, it's fair to say that Alex Jones isn't having a great time of it right now. We'd offer our sympathies, but considering that he built a career out of siccing conspiracy theorist goonballs on bereaved parents, we couldn't be happier about this news, if only because it means our crazed uncles might be able to get through Thanksgiving without throwing holy water at us in order to exorcise the "demons."
On the plus side for Jones, this downtime -- the sort of downtime you can only have after losing a sizable majority of your audience (along with most of your revenue streams) -- gives him the chance to pivot and rebrand himself not as a monger of conspiracies, but as a monger of dope-ass beats.
See, there's a surprising amount of evidence out there that Alex Jones is hardcore into acid house record producing, like a video he shot in 2016 titled "Democrat Counter-Coup Against Trump in Progress." (This totally happened, by the by.) The video -- in which, like in many others, his spheroid pastrami-hued head bloviates about globalists -- opens with a shot of his sound equipment setup, which includes a drum machine, mixing board, some baller studio monitors, and a couple of TB-303 synths -- an array that, according to people who know music, is far beyond the sort of thing that a casual hobbyist would own.
