Alex Jones Makes NYT Headlines!
It's important to fight to get Alex Jones and InfoWars back on the major social media platforms. Otherwise, who knows who'll be next...

They're Coming For Me Next
Closing some channels and demonetizing other channels definitely stifles free speech. There can be no doubt about that. So, yes, I agree that this is a case of discrimination, but I think it's also a free speech issue despite the claim that private companies are not bound by the First Amendment. I believe they are when they become virtual monopolies controlling the exchange of information.

American college applicant questioned about following Alex Jones’ Twitter
Colleges should not be looking at the social media accounts of applicants. The same goes for employers and job applicants. Political discrimination is still discrimination.

Are You Ready for the Purge?
Many people seem to be blissfully unaware, but this is a serious move by the Corporate States of America to usurp the USA.

Twitter says InfoWars did violate its policy :roll2:
Looks like Twitter is starting to cave to corporate media pressure. They're starting to "see" reasons to ban InfoWars.

The Case For Not Banning Alex Jones
Free speech is not the only issue here. Misuse of corporate power and discrimination are both just as important issues.

Forbidden Information
Silicon Valley is conspiring to crush InfoWars. Hopefully all the conspirators become full-time residents of federal penitentiaries in the near future!

Alex Jones Receives Massive Subscriber Boost
Alex Jones may be a conspiracy theorist, but the biggest conspiracy of our lifetimes was the propaganda campaign that led up to the invasion of Iraq. Keep that in mind before you support the ban of someone like Alex Jones who has the balls to speak out against the establishment. Not saying I agree with anything Alex Jones says, just that he should not be deplatformed.

The rhetoric is fiery. Is this a case of modern-day book burning? Is the anti_American establishment silencing dissent? Is free thought being stifled? These channel closures just an attempt to squash the competition? Who's really behind this? Will Facebook and YouTube wind up restoring the InfoWars accounts? Or will they go after more cultural dissidents?
