Report: Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an Infowars fan; Alex Jones alleges conspiracy

Alex Jones believes that the Boston Marathon bombing was a “false flag” operation conducted by the U.S. government and predicted by “Family Guy.”

Alex Jones is also a grade-A nutball.

Despite his grand delusions, there aren’t a whole lot of people who take Jones seriously (and those who take him seriously generally aren’t taken seriously themselves). According to an AP report, though, one of the conspiracy loons who did give Jones a chance was none other than accused Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Color no one surprised:

Still, all this has got to make people wonder: what does Jones think about the revelation? Buzzfeed’s Rosie Gray took it upon herself to find out:

Jones doesn’t want to make anything out of the Tsarnaev connection. Makes sense, since he’s always been the type to proceed with extreme caution:

But he says he’s concerned about the Tsarnaev family:

OK, well, the first part of that is true. Some family members definitely think it’s a setup.

But it’s not just the family crying conspiracy. In addition to his assertion that the government orchestrated the bombing, Jones also insists that the government is responsible for linking him to Tamerlan:

“I’ve seen this before,” Jones said. “The federal government trying to connect me to tragedies. That’s the media and the government’s own conspiracy theories.”

It’s all part of a nefarious plot, you see. Open your eyes, America.

But why stop at the U.S. government? This could be much, much bigger!

Oh man.

Minds? Blown. Like false flags in the wind.

For the record, Infowars doesn’t like it when they’re portrayed as fringe:

Terrorists? Not especially. Certifiably insane? You bet.

But hey, at least Alex is taking this all in stride:

Riiiiiiiight.
