    Expect a circus to come to the KIDO-AM studios

    BY ZACH KYLE

    Right-wing radio host Alex Jones says he will fight Chobani’s defamation lawsuit against him and will visit Idaho to expose Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya’s “Islamacist” agenda.

    “I’m choosing this as a battle,” Jones said Tuesday on his YouTube channel. “On this I will stand. I will win, or I will die.”

    Chobani, which operates the world’s largest yogurt plant in Twin Falls, sued Jones on Monday. The lawsuit said Jones repeatedly published false information April 11 on his InfoWars website, his Twitter feed and his YouTube channel linking Chobani and owner Hamdi Ulukaya to a sexual assault case involving refugee children at a Twin Falls apartment complex, and to increases in crime and tuberculosis in Twin Falls.

    Jones stood by his network’s reporting and said he would come to KIDO-AM (580) in Boise, which carries his syndicated show.

    “I’m going to be going to Idaho,” Jones said. “I’m going to go on that local radio station. I’m going to bring investigative crews there. I am going to show what the locals are doing. I am going to show the Islamicists getting off of the planes. You want a fight? You better believe, baby, you’ve got one.”

    In an earlier video Tuesday, Jones said billionaire Hillary Clinton supporter George Soros was backing Chobani’s lawsuit. Jones calles Soros a “Nazi collaborator.”

    Soros isn’t named in the suit. Chobani declined to comment.

    Jones said his network had already changed one headline specified in the lawsuit — “Idaho Yogurt Maker Caught Importing Migrant Rapists” — two weeks ago at the request of Chobani attorneys. That headline remained Wednesday on a tweet on the InfoWars feed that promotes a video on Jones’ YouTube channel, “MSM Covers For Globalist’s Refugee Import Program After Child Rape Case.” Jones retweeted the Tweet.

    Apparently other outlets that align with Alex Jones have also been accused of spreading the Chobanigate.
