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.
The eugenics portion of the Rogan interview didn’t end there: Jones went on to say that people of Asian heritage are “conscious and real people, but when they get into a fight they all synch up and are robots and have no fear” and then to discuss IQ differences between races. pic.twitter.com/XCFKXCUV8x
“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.”
There are many different ethnic groups in Asia:Central Asia, East Asia, North Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, & West Asia. Yet I’m certain that these groups don’t fit these ‘stereotypes.’They make up 60% of the world’s population.Asians aren’t a monolith.The AUDACITY I tell ya!
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.
How did I know instinctively that Rogan was going to bring up martial arts and samurais?
I’d like to know why @joerogan gave a free stage to this racist TWICE. And not once did he question or challenge him on his bigotry. Alex Jones I just expect nothing but hate from. But Rogan is complicit and that’s what really disappoints me.
