Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is facing calls for his arrest after saying at a pro-Trump rally that President-elect Joe Biden will be removed “one way or the other,” according to The Independent.
The InfoWars host has been accused of attempting to incite violence during his speech at the “Million MAGA march” which was held to drum up support for Mr Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.
“So I don’t know who’s going to the White House in 38 days but I sure know this – Joe Biden is a globalist and Joe Biden will be removed one way or another,” Mr Jones said during his appearance at the event.
Calls for Jones’ arrest were immediate.
Members of the anti-Trump Republican political action committee The Lincoln Project also lashed out at the conspiracy theory and called for his arrest.
David Weissman, a Steering Committee member of the group, said: “This antisemitic trope should also be considered a threat and Alex Jones should be arrested for incitement.”
Jones pushed unfounded claims of election fraud and promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory during his speech as well, according to the report.
He said: “The system is publicly stealing this election from the biggest landslide and the biggest political realignment since 1776. We will never back down to the Satanic paedophile, globalist New World Order and their walking-dead reanimated corpse Joe Biden, and we will never recognize him.”
The Independent noted that “violence erupted on the streets as far-right extremists clashed with counter-protesters and four people were taken to hospital with stab wounds.”
