An alleged government conspiracy to turn people into homosexuals has been championed by Alex Jones, but in the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling to strike down the Defense Of Marriage Act, his wild theories are gaining attention.
"The reason there are so many gay people now is because it's a chemical warfare operation," Jones previously stated in June 2010. "I have the government documents where they said they're going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so people don't have children."
In one example, Jones claimed that the plastic lining in juice boxes were laced with "estrogen mimickers" the led to effeminate men.
"After you're done drinking your little juices, you're ready to go out and have a baby. You're ready to put makeup on; you're ready to wear a short skirt," he said.
This is not the only conspiracy theory that Jones, who oversees the website inforwars.com, has brought forth. In the wake of the damage caused by the tornado in Moore, Okla., Jones claimed that it was the work of the government possibly using "Weather Weapons."
"They spend, the Department of Energy, the last time I checked, $5 billion a year in studying weather modification," said Jones on his Austin, Texas-based radio program, "The Alex Jones Show."
"Of course there is weather weapons stuff going on … I don't know if this is a weather weapon or not, but they can with the right weather conditions, they can create and steer groups of tornadoes," he claimed.
Jones attributed such man-made weather changing to efforts to intentionally harm the farmlands of America so as to advance globalization.
Despite the controversial rhetoric, Jones' program has featured several notable Republican and conservative figures, such as Senator Rand Paul, his father Congressman Ron Paul, conservative talk radio personality Michael Savage and others.
However, not all conservative commentators have found a friend in Jones. Fox News contributor and author Glenn Beck and Jones have had their very public disagreements, with Jones claiming that Beck would have been spat upon by Thomas Jefferson and Beck stating that Jones is "not a conservative."
