Texas Radio Host Alex Jones Says “1776 Will Commence Again if You Try to Take Our Firearms”
Dallas-born, Rockwall-raised, Austin-based Alex Jones — given the title “the most paranoid man in America” by Rolling Stone in 2011 — is behind the deport Piers Morgan petition on the White House website, posted in response to the CNN host’s call for tighter gun-control laws following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, last month. Last night, the two squared off on CNN; their exchange has been making the virtual rounds ever since.
Morgan wanted to know: Why the petition? And he doesn’t say much after that.
