The photo shows Nekrasova and her “Red Scare” co-host, Anna Khachiyan, arm-in-arm with the right-wing polemicist.
- Khachiyan also posted the image to her Twitter account, where it racked up more than 18,000 likes.
- “Happy Holidays y’all,” she wrote in a caption to the photo.
- Other pictures showed the two Bernie Sanders supporters holding firearms, and Chick-fil-A food items were visible in other shots.
Jones made a recent guest appearance on Khachiyan and Nekrasova’s podcast.
The scene inspired an array of emotions on Twitter.
Impossible to overstate how evil Alex Jones is. He tormented the parents of Sandy Hook victims and drove some of them to suicide. Never listened to Red Scare but this is a very bad look. I'm beginning to think these two are not good people let alone good leftists. https://t.co/JAf5pduZMO

While the “Red Scare” hosts often criticize mainstream liberalism, many commenters were still shocked to see them fraternizing with a “problematic” right-winger like Jones.
- Some referenced a Connecticut judge’s recent ruling, which found Jones liable for defamation against victims in the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting.
- Others made note of Jones’ hand positioning.
In 2018, Nekrasova became a viral sensation, and earned the nickname “Sailor Socialism,” after she was interviewed on the street by Jones’ InfoWars website.
“You people have like worms in your brain, honestly,” Nekrasova told an InfoWars reporter while defending her support for socialism and free health care.
