Over the weekend, Childish Gambino — the singing alter-ego of actor Donald Glover — debuted the video for his new song ‘This Is America.’ And it caused an immediate sensation, quickly becoming the most talked about music video in recent memory. The Washington Post has a good breakdown of the revolutionary and powerful masterpiece here.
Well, with the video gaining so much attention, conspiracy theorist and InfoWars founder Alex Jones just had to weigh in on it. And he gave a very Alex Jones interpretation of the whole thing.
Jones wasn’t impressed one bit with the message Glover was trying to convey in his video, saying that because the economy is improving every day, liberals are “force feeding things like Childish Gambino.” He also noted that there’s not that much violence in this country — except where Democrats are in power.
“Out of 330 million Americans, showing images of a few hundred people getting killed to create the illusion that we’re living in all this carnage,” he exclaimed. “Only in Democrat, blue abscesses. Only in Democrat cesspits where they’ve taken all the guns and shipped in the narcotics.”
After going on about Venezuela for some reason, Jones then described the video as “all this emotional idiocy — and people fittingly doing a voodoo dance.”
And then Jones became obsessed with tying Glover and his video to voodoo.
“You know, I’m looking at video they just played of the Donald Glover Childish Gambino dance he is doing that he probably thinks you think is real original,” he stated. “That’s a voodoo dance he is doing!”
Jones continued, “In fact, that’s a full ‘nother subject. Pull me voodoo dancing, people in trance, and that is a voodoo dance 110 percent. You’ve got all of that then personified through artwork but they don’t think you know what you’re actually looking at. The Clintons like to go and do their own voodoo rituals, that’s in the news.”
Big ups to Alex for getting a Clinton reference in there at the end.
