Alt-right commentator Alex Jones and his controversial “Infowars” can no longer be seen on Facebook, Spotify, nor other platforms that have elected to ban Jones, a situation that Stephen Colbert gleefully mocked on Tuesday’s edition of Global’s “The Late Show”.
Discussing how the “extreme right-wing conspiracy theorist and bath salt spokesmodel” has had his content removed from a number of platforms, Colbert quipped, “Now if you want to see one of Jones’ signature rants, you’ll have to be in the next booth at Ruby Tuesday when he sees a mother breastfeeding.”
This is not good news for Colbert’s alt-right alter ego Tuck Buckford, who appeared on “The Late Show” to lament that his show — “Brainfight” — is facing the same fate now that Jones has lost his “war on info.”
“Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, the martyrdom of ol’ Tuck Buckford at the hands of Silicon Valley snowboys and soyflakes,” explained Buckford.
Without the exposure from these platforms, Buckford introduced a new way to get his message to viewers: Brainfight Hivemind, which involves Buckford screaming at a swarm of bees that are released into the world so they can sting his message “directly into your bloodstream.”
However, Buckford requires some assistance from the White House. “President Trump, I need you to do the right thing, all right? Help Tuck,” Buckford begged. “Venmo me 50 bucks, or China will win the midterms.”
