these conspiracy MAGA people are so infuriatingly, aggressively stupid. How somebody could defend them or delude themselves to think these people can be reasoned or discussed with is completely beyond me. That level of vile ignorance is definitely a choice. Whoever owns the means to listen to Alex Jones also owns the means to educate themselves about it.

I was surprised they could, or would put a microchip in someone's earwax.

Alex Jones and his followers are ignorant and downright uneducated foul people.

Chris Mikkelsen or a worse enemy for these A-holes to make. I don't even want to consider the horror even in the abstract, but to put myself in this grieving father's shoes, honestly what could all their keyboard and touchtone threats do to me when a part of me would welcome death over facing another day without my son. I know he has other children and that changes that mindset a lot, but at times he had to just think, "bring it on." couple that with this giving him an outlet and something to focus on, his relentlessness makes sense. I am so glad I listened past the start, other podcasts on topics like this I just can't do, like Embedded's coverage at the border. The non MAGA hat wearing, non Info wars listening, non Q anon Reddit page hosting, decent 70ish% of this country need to come up with a way to protect and/or fight for these families so they can try to find peace.

This was terrific reporting and should have been done long ago. I know many cult members will just think the people in this piece were lying about Jones but telling the truth is always right. exposing liars is always right. I wonder if others in msm are afraid to expose people like Jones because of their followers. this explains why qanon decided being anonymous is the best way to be a liar

One of the most disturbing stories I have heard. What kind of human being would take another stab at the the heart of the parents who have lost their children? I am wondering how he would take it if something similar happened to him.

anyone who questions why certain people are de-platformed are clearly making an argument out of ignorance.

Possibly one of the most sad, depressing episodes that I have ever heard.
