Despite President Donald Trump's and his allies' continued denial, President-elect Joe Biden defeated Trump in the 2020 election.
The Trump sphere has railed against the results with baseless claims of widespread voter fraud coordinated by Democrats to tip the 2020 election to Biden.
The President's supporters have been holding "Stop the Steal" rallies in D.C. and swing states across the nation, where far-right speakers have amplified lies that the 2020 election was tainted and therefore illegitimate.
InfoWars founder and delusional conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was one of these speakers at a rally in D.C. at the so-called Million MAGA March on Saturday.
Echoing the QAnon conspiracy web, Jones falsely claimed Biden was part of a group of satanic cannibal pedophiles secretly controlling the U.S. government.
He then appeared to endorse violence against the President-elect.

"We will never back down to the satanic pedophile globalist new world order and their walking-dead reanimated corpse Joe Biden. And we will never recognize him. So I don't know who's going to the White House in 38 days, but I sure know this: Joe Biden is a globalist, and Joe Biden will be removed one way or another."
While his ramblings would be laughable coming from the average person, Jones has a broad platform where he's peddled insidious conspiracy theories while peddling so-called supplements and supplies for the end of the world.
Jones frequently claimed that the devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting—which left 28 educators and children dead—was staged as a means to revoke the Second Amendment. Jones supporters subsequently began terrorizing bereaved parents of murdered children, threatening them with murder and violence. Jones was fined $100 thousand for the emotional damage he inflicted on them.
People decried Jones' deranged diatribe and called on the Secret Service to investigate his calls for violence.
Just so everyone understands, this is a direct attack against the President Elect of the United States. @SecretService : are you paying attention? #Traitor #AlexJones https://t.co/qLxctdZ4Tl

This certainly sounds like the sort of thing that would get most folks a friendly visit from their local @SecretService field office. https://t.co/45FqjGwLJu

I sure hope the @FBI and @CIA have arrested Jones. He deserves a padded room with a lock on the outside... https://t.co/MrA36LrCDu

The far-right radicalism on display was disturbing to many.
These people are still very dangerous to our democracy. https://t.co/M5XsApGMRn

Alex Jones is an ape and #MAGA is literally threatening @JoeBiden's life.
They're terrorists. All of them.
