Many members of the press may not agree with Alex Jones; however, some do agree that censoring him because he offends the establishment is totalitarian in nature.
Many of Jones' ideas are considered to be absurd to say the least. However, the Left also has a plethora of deranged ideas that it peddles, and the establishment shows no concern over that. Here, here, and here. are but three articles on that subject.
America, are we now living in a pre-WWII Nazi Germany scenario of propaganda and book burning? Do we not realize the danger we are in?
Alex Jones is but a symbol.
The war to destroy Alex Jones, Part One
He “employed hate speech and violated community standards.”
by Jon Rappoport
August 7, 2018
Rivers of elite revenge are flowing.
THEY are out to get him and drive him into oblivion.
He, and his huge website, Infowars, stand as a threat to the empire they are building, where free speech is a thing of the past and only correct speech that supports THEIR objectives is permitted.
Monday, the coordinated war against Alex Jones escalated along several fronts, within a space of about 12 hours, according to infowars reporter Paul Watson:
“Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest clamped down on content by Alex Jones Monday.”
“Apple confirmed on Monday that it had removed five out of six podcasts, which includes Jones’ infamous ‘The Alex Jones Show’ as well as a number of other InfoWars audio streams.”
“Facebook and Google made similar decisions later on Monday. Facebook removed four pages controlled by him, while Google removed the official “Alex Jones Channel” on its platform. The YouTube channel for InfoWars, the media company owned by Alex Jones, still remains live. Pinterest also removed the InfoWars board.”
I just saw a report that YouTube has taken down Jones’ channel altogether. That would mean tens of thousands of videos of his past shows are gone from that platform. Here are links you would go to, to listen to his show now:
Live stream: 9am to Noon ET:
Live stream: Noon to 4pm ET:
Live stream: 4pm to 7pm ET:
There are several reasons for this war against Jones and infowars. One is: he rallied untold numbers of “deplorables” and helped elect Donald Trump.
Another is: over and over, he has described the differences between nationalism and globalism—and he favors nationalism, in particular for America.
The tech giants/social media who are aligned against him ARE CORPORATIONS. Therefore, they can ban Jones and not face the raft of rules they would have to deal with if they were public utilities.
However, there is no doubt these corporations are colluding in restraint of trade, to invoke an old phrase pertaining to trusts and monopolies. They are waging a COORDINATED COLLABORATIVE war against Jones. (emphasis mine)
In fact, several years ago, major news giants approached social media giants and pleaded for help. The news businesses were fading further into the background. They needed Facebook, for example, to feature their coverage of the news.
The dark side of this collusion was and is: put big alt.-news operations out of business. Delist them. De-platform them. Delete them.
And so it has been happening, and it is escalating now.
Here is where the free-speech angle enters the scene: suppose a member of a favored minority (fill in that blank yourself) launched a podcast mercilessly attacking “traditional American values” and those Americans who support those values. Would Facebook or You Tube lift a finger to stop them? No? Then why attack Alex Jones?
The answer is simple.
This issue is not about Jones engaging in “hate speech” or “violating community standards.”
It’s about whose speech and ideas are favored and whose are opposed.
The solution and the response to the war on Jones (or any number of other so-called conservatives) is: GO DIRECTLY TO THEIR SITES AND BLOGS. DON’T USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO GET THERE.
More coming in Part 2…

liberals will fail in their censoring of national populists, longterm, because they have had to abandon their intrinsic [post 1968] values of free expression, human rights, freedom of conscience and social equality for all......to enforce their apparent orthodoxy......so it's actually game, set and match to alex jones.....;-0
national populism is the new counter-culture, to the politically correct liberal left establishment, clamping down on dissent in 2018.....that cycle has reversed polarity after 50-years, duration....in the 70s they opposed the censorship by conservatives/ traditionalists.....reverse roles trend
in the late 1960s/70s, it was considered 'cool' and avant garde to be socialist....in this era we mostly consider such beliefs as a failed experiment undermining western culture, economic integrity and national continuance....the left has become the stuffy and oppressive establishment, they once protested....antifa the fascist blackshirts...
h.r. 5181 was passed in 2016 to enable the current censorship...it was allowed that 160 million dollars be paid to msm 'journalists' to counter real news and truth......
the loony left threatens to rape and kill conservatives' and their children on social media and gets away with it along with all manner of hate speech against conservatives and white people-it's unbelievable
why aren't there web sites that are as user friendly as you tube/ facebook/ twitter that are owned and operated by conservatives?
