Marco Rubio threatens to ‘take out’ Alex Jones after he calls him ‘gay’

Republican Senator Marco Rubio was accosted at the Capitol yesterday by InfoWars host Alex Jones. The two nearly started a physical altercation outside of a hearing on Silicon Valley’s role in aiding potential foreign influence on U.S. elections.

The incident began after the GOP senator from Florida ridiculed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey – and other tech companies – for working with what he called “authoritarian” governments in order to silence conservative voices on social media.

Rubio stood in front of reporters to answer questions when Jones began interrupting his interviews. It was at that point that Jones appeared to reach out toward Rubio and called him a “frat boy.”

“Get your hand off me, don’t touch me…. I’ll take you out myself, I don’t need security,” Rubio could be heard saying in the heated exchange. He also said, “I don’t know anything about your site, man.”

When Rubio began to exit the scene, he reportedly told the journalists, “You guys can talk to this clown.” It was at that point that Jones called Rubio “gay” before continuing his live-stream event.

Jones has a history of spouting off anti-LGBTQ crackpot ideas, such as the belief that lesbians eat other people’s brains and gay men are deliberately infecting each other with HIV as part of a “Satanic” plot.

“The reason you have HIV is because it is a culture now in the gay community…to give other people HIV,” Jones once said.

Facebook and YouTube recently pulled the plug on the Jones’ conspiracy theory social media accounts. Apple and Spotify also yanked Jones’ podcasts.
