Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was recently asked to pay $965 million in damages to 15 plaintiffs. He had claimed that the Sandy Hook massacre had never happened. Not only this, Jones is known for calling the September 11, 2001 attacks an “inside job” perpetrated by the US government.

Most of his theories which are deemed true by his followers, are empty of facts or evidence. According to CNBC, Jones has turned this narrative into a successful business, earning more than $20 million in revenues annually in recent years, as per the court documents.

Here are some of the most bizzare and disturbing theories by the 44 year old.

1. The government trying to control the weather

Jones said that the government was controlling the weather to unleash havoc. In a 2013 broadcast, Jones said, "Off course there’s weather weapon stuff going on. We had floods in Texas like fifteen years ago, killed thirty-something people in one night. Turned out it was the Air Force.”

Jones acknowledged the existence of natural tornadoes, but said that a May 2013 tornado that killed two dozen people and left more than 200 injured may have been planned by the government, which he said “can create and steer groups of tornadoes.”

2. Chemicals in the water are turning frogs gay

Another strange conspiracy theory suggested that the government is using chemicals in order to turn people gay. In 2010, Jones said, “The reason there’s so many gay people now is because it’s a chemical warfare operation, and I have the government documents where they said they’re going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so that people don’t have children.”

Five years later, Jones said he didn’t like the government “putting chemicals in the water that turn the friggin’ frogs gay." The claim stands without evidence.

3. Robert Mueller is a demon, and also a pedophile

Jones brutally attacked fromer president Donald Trump’s enemies, in particular special counsel Robert Mueller. In 2017, Jones said, “He is now the king of the swamp."

He added, “Everyone’s so scared of Mueller, they’d let Mueller rape kids in front of people, which he did.”

He threatened Mueller, saying, “That’s a demon I will take down, or I’ll die trying. So that’s it. It’s going to happen, we’re going to walk out in the square, politically, at high noon, and he’s going to find out whether he makes a move man, make the move first, and then it’s going to happen. It’s not a joke. It’s not a game. It’s the real world. Politically. You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying, bitch.”

This attack led to Facebook taking down his pages.

4. The Sandy Hook shooting was staged

This theory proved to be a major setback for Jones, who had claimed the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 26 dead was a hoax and had so-called “crisis actors.”

After which, families of children who were killed in the shooting sued Jones for defamation and the court ruled in the families' favour. However, according to Vanity Fair, Alex claimed after the verdict, “‘Do these people actually think they’re getting any of this money?" He then added, "This must be what hell’s like – they just read out the damages. Even though you don’t get the money." Further, he said, “They want to scare everybody away from freedom. They want to scare us away from questioning Uvalde and what really happened there or Parkland or any other event."

5. Hillary Clinton is running a child sex ring out of a pizza parlor

The “pizzagate” conspiracy theory included the baseless claims that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her top associates were running a demonic sex-trafficking ring inside the pizza shop.

In response, Edgar Maddison Welch, from North Carolina went to the shop to investigate the conspiracy and fired a rifle inside the restaurant to break the lock on a door to a storage room during his search.

This led to Jones apologizing, "I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on [Comet Ping Pong owner James] Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees,” adding, “We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing."
