(Natural News) Conservatives on Twitter rejected the billion dollar verdict handed down by a jury in Alex Jones’ second Sandy Hook trial Wednesday, rallying in defense of his right to question official government narratives.

In a devastating blow to free speech, a six-person Connecticut jury ordered Jones to pay $965 billion in compensatory damages to the families of people killed in the Sandy Hook shooting, in addition to first responder FBI agent William Aldenberg.

Conceding defeat, Jones’ lawyer Norm Pattis’ admitted on Twitter, “Yes, I know. I got my ass kicked,” additionally sharing a link to Alex Jones’ legal defense fund

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) defended Jones’ right to “speak words.”

“He was not the one who pulled the trigger,” Greene wrote.

“Were his words wrong and did he apologize? Yes,” she tweeted, adding, “That’s what freedom of speech is. Freedom to speak words. Political persecution must end.”

Revolver News founder Darren Beattie noted Jones’ excessive fine is proof the regime can sue you into oblivion if they dislike what you’re saying.

Turning Point USA founder and president Charlie Kirk remarked Jones’ verdict “isn’t about calculating real damages from Alex Jones. This is about sending a message. If you upset the Regime, they will destroy you, completely and utterly, forever.”

Political commentator and attorney Mike Cernovich pointed out “Alex Jones killed no one,” and highlighted the default guilty judgement against Jones robbed him of his constitutionally protected right to a fair trial.

“He apologized for his erroneous reports, of which there weren’t many,” Cernovich tweeted. “Nevertheless in a trial where he wasn’t allowed to defend himself on free speech grounds, he’s now being ordered to pay hundreds-of-millions of dollars. Stalin’s ghost has returned.”

Human Events editor Jack Posobiec noted the verdict essentially means media personalities can be sued for promoting the false notion that Covid vaccines can stop transmission of the virus.

Conservative commentator Benny Johnson noted the disparity in Jones’ ruling for “causing harm,” while leftists who’ve literally tried to kill conservatives have faced little to no fines.

The Liberty Daily editor-in-chief JD Rucker responded that Jones’ verdict “is about quashing dissent.”

“Many are understandably alarmed that the Alex Jones verdict is a direct attack against freedom of speech, but it’s actually worse than that,” Rucker warned. “This is an attack against freedom of thought. He is being persecuted for wrongthink. WE will all be persecuted for wrongthink soon.”

Author Michael Malice noted OJ Simpson, who presumably killed his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman, only paid $33.5 million to families of his victims.

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong observed the billion dollar verdict “signals that it’s open season on anyone else whose speech may provoke stochastic actions.

Lawyer and YouTuber Viva Frei says he would like the ruling to be overturned on appeal, and if it doesn’t “there is no hope left for the so-called ‘justice’ system.”

Conservative commentator Jesse Kelly cautioned those celebrating the verdict that the precedent set would come back to bite them.

Comedian Tim Young joked the verdict was so high, the jury might have mistaken Jones for pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.

While conservatives are mourning the death of free speech, high-profile liberals like former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki are hailing the ruling saying they hope it will bring about the death of Infowars.
