On Monday, Infowars announced that they had been granted White House press credentials. Naturally, Alex Jones, founder of the right-wing site that revels in spreading conspiracy theories, had to celebrate. And what better way to do that than to release a video slandering a bunch of dead kids.
According to Jones, the victims of the bombing that took place at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester are "liberal trendies" and "are promoting open borders, bringing Islamists in."
To be clear, we are talking about murdered f*cking children.
Grande got her start on Nickelodeon and her fan base consists mostly of pre-teen girls. Metro, a U.K. publication, reports that "Twelve children under the age of 16 were among the 59 casualties taken to hospital after the terror attack at Manchester Arena."
A witness described the scene as "a lot of children, with blood all over them." But Jones insists they are just "a bunch of liberals who have already run up the white flag to the Islamists." Because this 8-year-old girl named Saffie Rose Roussos, who was one of the first confirmed casualties, gave a fuck about open borders or Islam. Right?

This isn't the first time Jones has smeared murdered kids for ratings. He is perhaps most well known for claiming that the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012 never actually happened and all the grieving parents were just paid actors.
And as a reward for his disgusting actions, for spreading fake news, for torturing mourning parents, for slandering dead kids, this asshole now gets to attend White House press briefings. Excuse me, I'm going to go vomit now.
Here's the video, if you can stomach it.
