Jones has insisted that the shooting was “giant hoax” and false flag even
Infowars host and founder Alex Jones has been hit with a surge of massive defamation lawsuits from the parents of the two children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
The tragic shooting which took place in 2012, resulted in the deaths of 20 elementary school children and six adults at the hands of the gunman, Adam Lanza.
Jones has insisted that the shooting was “giant hoax” and false flag event designed to bring into new gun control laws in the US.
The lawsuits, filed in Austin, Texas, were filed by Leonard Pozner and his ex-wife, Veronique De La Rosa, whose son was killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.
RT reports: The second was filed by Neil Heslin whose son Jesse was murdered, both boys were six years old.
The parents are seeking $1 million in damages from Jones and his company Infowars and Free Speech Systems LLC.
Both suits relate to comments made last year by Jones. The first of which occurs during an Infowars segment, aired last April, entitled ‘Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed.’
In the show Jones references an interview given by De La Rosa, after the murders, with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
During the piece, Cooper’s nose seems to disappear leading Jones to claim that they are both actors and his nose “disappears repeatedly because the green screen isn’t set right.”
In June, during a profile of Jones, NBC’s Megyn Kelly interviews Heslin, who tells her that:

“I lost my son. I buried my son. I held my son with a bullet hole through his head.”
Jones later took umbrage with this statement claiming that: “Quite frankly, the father (Heslin) needs to clarify, NBC needs to clarify, because the coroner said none of the parents were allowed to touch the kids or see the kids and maybe meaning at the school.
I’m sure later maybe the parents saw their children.”
Despite the lawsuits, conspiracy-laden articles and videos relating to Sandy Hook continue to appear on the Infowars site and YouTube channel.
One claims that the FBI says that no one was killed in the massacre and another claims that Sandy Hook officials are “running scared” having been “caught” in a “cover-up.”
