Alex Jones Says Asians are ‘the most fearless killers there are’ on Joe Rogan’s Podcast

Alex Jones, the owner of InfoWars, is back in the spotlight after making a racist generalization and describing Asian people as robots and psychotic killers in fights.

 

Jones made the controversial remarks during his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast on February 27, according to HuffPost. At one point in the video, which runs for 4 hours and 40 minutes, the 45-year-old conspiracy theorist started to blurt out some offensive theories targeting Asians.

In fights in like, Korea, fighting the Chinese, or Vietnam ― they’re conscious and real people but when they get into a fight, they all sync up and are robots and have no real fear. They’re psychotic killers you’re fighting. Asians are about the most fearless killers there are,” he said.

“Once Asians go to war, they’re not crazed, going wild in a battle. They’re like robots coming to kill you.”

Jones’ comments did not sit well with a lot of people online. Some netizens on Twitter dragged Jones for his stereotyping and racism.

Others made fun of Jones’ sync up comment.

Rogan, seemed to agree with Jones, describing the Mongols and Japanese as having a “long history of being a noble warrior culture with the samurais and all the martial arts that come from there.” The podcast’s host also listed the martial arts that came from Japan such as kendo, karate, judo and jiu jitsu.
