During a recent call-in segment on his show, InfoWars host and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones went off on a QAnon adherent who called into his show, slamming him for disseminating predictions that never come true.
“Q tells this stuff, and all of it is lies is what I’m saying,” Jones yelled.
“You keep interrupting me,” the caller protested.
“Because you’re lying!” Jones exclaimed. “Because you’re full of sh**! That’s why! Because every goddamn thing out of you people’s mouths doesn’t come true. And it’s always ‘Oh, there’s energy’ or ‘Oh, now we’re done with Trump…'”
Some right-wing figures are starting to walk back their rhetoric in the wake of the storming of the Capitol in D.C. on January 6, which resulted in the deaths of at least 5 people. The QAnon conspiracy theory, which among other things claims that Satanic child trafficking rings are embedded within the Washington and Hollywood elite, is widely agreed upon to be the catalyst for the violence at the Capitol.

Good example of the factionalization going on in the online right this week.
Alex Jones isn’t a huge Q guy (he’s been on and off the bandwagon), but many who have been predicting Civil War for years, like InfoWars, are sick of QAnon’s magical thinking.pic.twitter.com/BbrgJyTn5b
