Outrage over Nigel Farage's 'disgusting' interview on show hosted by conspiracy theorist who claims 7/7 terror attack and US school shootings were faked

Nigel Farage provoked outrage after appearing in an interview with online conspiracy theorist Alex Jones – who claims the 7/7 terror attack and the Sandy Hook school shooting were “staged”. 

Mr Farage spoke from the LBC studio in Leicester Square via video link, telling Jones the Left was “allied with radical Islam” because “they hate Christianity“. 

Appearing in a segment on the ‘Infowars’ show, he said: “They deny absolutely our Judeo-Christian culture, which – if you think about it, actually, are the roots, completely, of our nations and our civilisation.

“They also – don’t forget, Alex – they want to abolish the nation state – they want to get rid of it. 

“They want to replace it with the globalist project and the European Union is the prototype for the ‘New World Order’…

“We may sit here and be a bit critical of Trump but, on many other things, he’s got things right.” 

Mr Jones has previously claimed both the 9/11 and 7/7 terror attacks in London and New York were “staged” or “inside jobs”, suggested victims of mass shootings in the US were “crisis actors” hired by the American government, and said chemicals in the water supply were being used to “make children gay” and reverse population growth.

The interview sparked outrage online, with LBC colleague James O’Brien tweeting: “If you appear on Infowars you are legitimising an odious platform that maligns the parents of murdered schoolchildren [and] dishonours the memory of everyone killed in the 9/11 attacks. 

“Racist f***nuggetry is one thing, this is a whole new level of disgusting, even for Farage.” 

Twitter user Stephen Macken wrote: “If you [appear] with the brand of LBC prominently displayed in the same frame as you, you bring LBC into disrepute by association.” 

Martin Belam wrote: “So was that your Nigel Farage who complained about Labour anti-semitism appearing on Alex Jones Infowars then? He’ll be absolutely gutted when he realises.”

Jones is known for proffering conspiracy theories made up of anti-Semitic tropes, including those concerning the Rothschild banking family and the falsified “Protocols of Zion”. 

When approached for comment, an LBC spokesman told the Standard: “We can confirm we did not authorise the use of the LBC studio for this broadcast by Nigel Farage.” 

The Standard approached Mr Farage for comment.
