Rebekah, a notorious grifter who has been a vocal opponent of Ron DeSantis for years, was recently involved in a scandal that involved her son and a possible mass shooting.
In early April, Jones took to social media to claim that DeSantis had kidnapped her son. The implication was that the governor was exacting revenge on Jones for supposedly exposing corruption in the State of Florida.
It became apparent that the story was much more complex, and that Jones turned her son over after he had been found to be planning a mass shooting. Authorities posted on social media that the boy had mental illnesses.
This arrest was not a surprise. She facilitated the arrest and knew what was written on the warrant. She was aware of the messages that showed her son threatening a mass shooting. She knew Ron DeSantis was not involved in the events.
She still took to social media, pretending that the police had just arrived at her door and taken her son by force under false pretenses…and then the press jumped on it. They lied to the hilt to try and smear DeSantis.
The last paragraph of that sentence is what leads us to this latest chapter of the saga. I wrote then that several media outlets echoed Jones’ absurd claims. One outlet did have the decency to correct Jones’ claims, and it wasn’t the Miami Herald, which is a dumpster fire. It was The Young Turks.
Ana Kasparian apologized on air for being one of the hosts at the left-wing news outlet.
This is absolutely devastating for those who blindly believed Rebeckah Jones. Shame on all of you. And how are @Blaskey_S & @MarbinMiller still employed @MiamiHerald / @mcclatchy? How is your “coverage” of this serial grifter remotely acceptable? pic.twitter.com/5lXxu50uyP

Jones was not happy when she heard Kasparian’s remarks. She threatened to prove her derangement instead of simply admitting that she had misled people.
Jones breaks her TikTok silence, posting there for the first time since her son was arrested, to announce that an “epic takedown” is coming soon and “The Young Turks are in trouble.” https://t.co/AhkgFZRyiK pic.twitter.com/N3AaR27Cv6

Jones is going to destroy The Young Turks. She has been lying for years. This can’t be another swindle to continue taking money from her online fans via GoFundMe campaigns.
It’s hilarious. Even though I don’t like The Young Turks (whose founder Cenk Uygur is a leftist nut), they seem sane in comparison to Jones’ rantings. It’s even worse that many people, such as those from the Miami Herald have spread Jones’ nonsense because they hate DeSantis so much.
This latest episode still feels like it’s a breaking point. Jones acts like she’s afraid that her grifting will finally come to an end. There’s not much she can do to get more cash or fame when The Young Turks are losing.
