Channel claiming to be run by Alex Jones invites people to “kill Bill O’Reilly”

A dirty tricks campaign centered around fake You Tube accounts has people posing as Alex Jones and offering rewards for the murder of public figures in a clear attempt to smear and self-incriminate the nationally syndicated talk show host.
The fact that the hoax has now been exposed means that the only people who should be worried about the legal consequences of soliciting for murder are the creators of the fake accounts themselves.
Over the course of the past few weeks, multiple You Tube accounts have been created that masquerade as being owned and operated by Alex Jones and his staff.
In some cases, the culprits chose names that closely resemble the You Tube account names of Alex Jones’ own You Tube channels or those operated by fans and other legitimate activists.
The You Tube channels carry text and videos that are racist, violent and transparently self-incriminating should anyone actually believe the hoax that the channels are operated by Alex Jones.
One such example, seen in the screenshot above, is named “AlexJones” and is headlined “Kill Bill O’Reilly”. The description for the channel offers cash prizes for the “1st psycopath to kill Bill O’Reilly,” as well as Michelle Malkin and a member of the Rockefellers.
The background of the channel page features the DVD cover for Alex Jones’ latest film, 9/11 Truth Chronicles.
The full description reads, “1st psycopath to kill Bill O’Reilly will get a $1million donation from Infowars.com.”
“This is not a joke or parody, this is a serious call to execute someone for money.”
“It is not terrorism – I am Alex Jones, a patriot.”
The intention of this dirty tricks campaign is clear, to drag Alex Jones’ name through the mud and, in this post 9/11-climate of hyper paranoia, have authorities investigate the hoax claims and harass Alex Jones and his staff.
The sheer desperation of our detractors, whatever their source and motivation, provides comfort to us in knowing that we are having such a massive effect for people to have to resort to these kind of tactics.
However, such smear attempts take on a further seriousness in light of the recent campaign by Joe Lieberman to have You Tube remove “radical” videos to bring the Internet in line with H.R. 1955, otherwise known as the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, a bill currently awaiting Senate approval that would curb free speech and dissent against the government. You Tube have already deleted many user accounts under this pretext.
In addition, The Corbett Report highlighted another smear attack earlier this week, “A user who is creating clones of respected user accounts and truth movement leaders in order to smear 9/11 Truth by posting racist comments. These have already led to the deletion of several well-known accounts in what has been revealed as a coordinated effort to eliminate 9/11 Truth from YouTube.”
The You Tube clip below details the clone accounts scam and how it is being used to demonize 9/11 truth and legitimate activists.
Alex Jones and his staff are now in the process of contacting You Tube to have all the accounts associated with the hoax removed and to prepare probable defamation lawsuits against the authors of the smear campaign.
If you see any examples of cloned accounts or people posing as Alex Jones, please report them immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
