$45.2 million...

How does the Left win?

$45.2 million on top of $4.1 million for publicly expressing one's personal opinion.  And hurting someone's feelings.    

I'm not an Alex Jones fan.  But...

OTOH, he made a lot of money perpetuating the "Sandy Hook was a hoax" narrative.  A judge and jury just took that money from him.  

"Reasonable" people see Alex Jones and people like him as entertainers with a voice.  Reasonable people ignore people like Alex Jones when what he says is so obviously hyperbolic that it can't possibly be true.  Turn around, walk away...  I'm not sure that what's happening to Mr. Jones now is reasonable.  

Whether we like it or not, they just threw cold water on the ability to speak what you believe.  Or to say the things that make you money.

I suspect that some judge somewhere will overturn these awards.  

My mind is reeling.  This is insanity.  Almost $50 million to one set of parents because Alex Jones called Sandy Hook a hoax.  

Maybe I'm seeing this wrong?  

Your thoughts, please...

It could happen to anyone.  Cross a Leftist, see where it gets you.

Watch how the January 6th "investigation" was conceived and has grown.  

If the Left wins in November, we're fucked.  

If they lose in November, these games that they are playing are setting precedent regarding how to deal with them.  How to deal with people protesting for their cause.  How to deal with political opponents we don't like.  'ol Joe will be impeached, Hunter will be prosecuted, blah blah blah.  Surely the Left understands that?  They can't be so nearsighted that they believe no one else will do these things, given the opportunity?  They aren't pursuing the American citizens involved in the January 6th protests with such vigor in order to get justice.  They are doing it to crush all opposition to the advancement of their Leftist ideology.   They are doing it to make people fear opposing them in the future.

People better start getting their heads out of their asses most rickety-tick.  

Anyone who believes that the Left is just practicing "business as usual" is almost too stupid to fathom.  The rules have changed, they are changing by the minute.  No one is going to stop this "peaceful" overthrow of democracy by the Left.  It's done.  

Anyway, wow.

I thought the same thing when I saw the 4 million award, the other day. Now at the nearly 50 million dollar punitive award, or should I say, extortion, I can both agree with you, but even more, your point is a sad reminder of just how crappy the Republican party has become. They no longer present a solid choice other than the Democrats, and they don't have the ability to fight them with any real strategy.
The fact is, while the Democrats fought Trump during his entire administration, the Republicans too, had to be fought by Trump, especially during the first years with Paul Ryan at the helm.
Now we see what allowing the left and their hard turn to progressivism has done to nearly every area of American life, from the Bill of Rights, from Alex Jones and the 1st amendment, to a Supreme Court ruling on the 2nd amendment that quickly saw many states make moves to show their contempt for the ruling.
As you pointed out, the Democrats use their power not to punish those that they deem to have done wrong, but to send a message to anyone who dares to challenge them in the future. I think that they are pure evil, in many ways. And the few Republicans who aid them are just as guilty as they are.

Remember, as much as they want you to think so, the politicians, the government, e al, are not what is America.
It is The People which is America.

The corollary is, America will stand without the political class. America cannot exist without The People.
