Alex Jones: “I feel like the Syria strike is Donald Trump’s funeral”

Some of President Trump’s most hardcore base turned on the president Friday over his decision to launch military strikes against Syria without Congressional approval in retaliation for an alleged chemical attack by Syria’s President Assad.

“Fuck Trump, and fuck these fucking people,” said Alex Jones, before bursting into tears. Alex Jones has been referred to as “the man who got Trump elected” by the mainstream media due to his early, vocal and unrelenting support during the 2016 campaign.

“If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Jones said of Trump. “We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick.”

Many Trump supporters have lost jobs, friends, family members during the campaign because of their fervent support for him. The Syrian strike has come like a slap in the face for most of President Trump’s hardcore base – and Trump could seemingly care less.

Trump himself tweeded against a potential Syria strike without Congressional approval back in August 2013. “The President [Obama] must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria – big mistake if he does not!”

“I haven’t had Trump call me in six months,” said Jones. He was streaming live from the Infowars studio Friday night because President Trump had just announced a strike on Syria. “I will tell Trump that you really betrayed your family and your name, and everything you stood for with this horse manure.”

“I shouldn’t even be live right now,” he said. After a couple of calmer sentences, Jones started to yell again: “Fuck Trump!”

“I’m not in a fucking cult for Donald Trump.”

Syria has always been a dividing point between Trump’s online base and America’s right-wing politicians, left-wing politicians, mainstream media.

“Attacking a foreign nation that has not attacked or threatened America is globalist interventionism. This is not America First. This is not what Trump was elected for,” tweeted Infowars writer Paul Joseph Watson in a message shared by Ann Coulter.

Trump launched the attack on Syria before any international evidence of President Assad’s supposed chemical attack had been presented. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 11, states: “Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.”

Ted Cruz Attacks Crazy John McCain Supporting War Hawk on Arab Spring

Ted Cruz the CanadianPresidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday got into a heated exchange with a voter who accused him of supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“I came from New Jersey to ask this question because it’s so important to me,” said John Davenport, a Fordham University professor who directs the school’s peace and justice studies, during a town hall at Lancaster Elementary featuring the GOP presidential candidate.

“Supporting Assad is a mistake. He’s the reason that ISIS exists in the beginning. What are you doing?” asked Davenport, who based his allegation that Cruz supports Assad on the failure of Congress to remove the Syrian leader from power.

“Now, your question begins with a false premise,” Cruz said to Davenport. “You asked me if I’m supporting Assad. I’m not supporting Assad.”

Cruz said President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the 2011 NATO effort to topple Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, claiming the intervention created a vacuum that allowed the rise of radical Islamic terrorists. He suggested the same thing would happen in Syria if the U.S. ousted Assad.

Davenport passionately explained that Assad had killed 200,000 innocent Syrians. We have heard these claims before. Saddam throwing babies out of incubators, Putin “kills” journalists, Iran is going to nuke Isreal so we have to attack them, Russia invaded Crimea, Weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

University professor John Davenport is not going to sign up and be on the front lines of any wars. He wants your children to fight a foreign war based on his emotions. He has created a narrative in his mind and feels bad, as we all do, about the situation in Syria. Making up figures like “Assad has killed 200,000 innocent Syrians” to add fuel to an already horrifying conflict is evil. The American people are sick of war. 

“We will not have a debate, Sir. I will answer it, but I will not have a yelling match,” Cruz said forcefully, as Davenport again tried to get a word in. “Alright, this answer is over,” Cruz shouted as the crowd erupted in applause.
