In case you hadn’t heard, the right-wing conspiracy show InfoWars is a hateful flaming dumpster fire of lies, disinformation and bigotry masquerading as political news commentary. Much to our delight, a young child confronted by an InfoWars reporter told him that that he’s a “fucking idiot” and then flipped him off on camera. Good job, kid!
Why InfoWars Is Dangerous Right-Wing Garbage
Among other horrid untruths spouted by its homophobic host-slash-performance-artist Alex Jones are the assertions that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was faked (a claim that resulted in the victims’ grieving parents being harassed) and that the gay-owned Washington D.C.-based Comet Ping Pong pizzeria was part of a shadowy child molestation ring involving Hillary Clinton.
The latter conspiracy theory came to be known as Pizzagate, and InfoWars’ repetition of the lie (along with other media outlets’) convinced 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch to “self-investigate” the pizzeria with an assault rifle and fire at least one shot before being arrested by police.
Apart from being a deadly source of disinformation, InfoWars also regularly rips off its conservative viewers by selling them expensive supplements that largely have no nutritional benefits.
Enjoy this video of a child cussing out an InfoWars “reporter”:

InfoWars regularly does man-on-the-street interviews, usually as a way to demonstrate how stupid and uninformed liberal protestors are. In one such clip that has since gone viral, InfoWars approaches an androgynous child and asks “How are you young man?”
It quickly goes downhill from there.
After seemingly misgendering the child, the kid says, “You’re a fucking idiot.”
The interviewer responds, “Wow, who taught you that language?”
“My mom,” the child proudly responds.
“So your mother taught you that foul language?” the reporter asks.
Smiling, the kid nods, adding, “In the car.”
As the interviewer asks, “And why am I an idiot” the child smartly walks off, but not before extending her middle finger right into the camera.
The interviewer’s fake outrage is pretty disingenuous considering that their show thinks the 2012 murder of 20 six- and seven-year-olds was a hoax. There’s also no way to know whether InfoWars hoaxed the video above, but either way, it’s pretty satisfying, leading to the video going viral.
We have avoided calling the InfoWars interviewer a “reporter” as not to mislead others into confusing their show with actual news.
