Alex Jones took a break on Tuesday from the exhausting work of spouting conspiracy theories about  the Boston Marathon bombing (among other favored topics) to launch into a transphobic rant.

Jones blasted the "globalist mafia" behind recent LGBT anti-discrimination measures, and called transgender rights "fake rights." He went on to preemptively defend himself against allegations of transphobia by clarifying: " It's not that I'm against people that think they're a woman or a man or whatever."

More from Jones:

They're saying in high schools, in junior highs now, they're going to have - men can decide to be in the women's bathroom if they want. You're like 'well big deal, that's their gender.' It's all about these fake rights that don't exist versus my basic liberty being taken. It's not that I'm against people that think they're a woman or a man or whatever. I don't even care. Give me a break. It's not even on my radar screen. I could care less. I care about people...

I don't want my daughters growing up in a country where some transvestite comes walking into the thing hopped out of their brain on drugs vomiting and crapping all over the place.
