What do you do when you encounter a man who's been interrupting press conferences about the Boston Marathon bombings with questions about conspiracy theories? Apparently launch into a tirade against him as a crowd records the encounter on their cell phones.
A video of the verbal clash between an unseen Boston resident and Dan Bidondi, a "correspondent" for Infowars was uploaded to YouTube.
"…What you say is dangerous and people like you shouldn't be able to drive a car much less espouse your opinions in public," the Boston resident said. "But we have a First Amendment. We gotta protect it. But you're an asshole and so's Alex Jones."
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is the host of the conservative radio talk program "The Alex Jones Show," and the founder of the Infowars website. In the past decade he has made a name for himself by accusing the U.S. government of being behind the Oklahoma City bombing, the Sept. 11th terror attacks and the most recent bombing in Boston. He also claims the shooting deaths of 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax.
Since the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, Infowars has published numerous articles featuring conspiracy theories about the attack. The Associated Press later revealed that Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a fan of the website.
