Alex Jones is not my cup of tea. For those who don’t know Alex Jones he is the voice behind InfoWars – an alt-media outlet for those who don’t fit into the mainstream media narrative. Alex Jones has some bizarre conspiracy theories such as believing the government is making frogs gay or Michelle Obama is actually a man (although that could explain a few things). The fact is, Jones is an entertaining character and whilst I didn’t listen to him, the stuff that I did hear was actually amusing. InfoWars do produce some good personalities such as Paul Joseph Watson. Watson, who has a Youtube page, is very good at articulating arguments for the right, he breaks down the issue and uses logic to make his argument.
Apple have recently announced that they have BANNED Jone’s podcasts on their app. Facebook, Spotify and Youtube have also jumped on the BANNING bandwagon and axed the InfoWar giant from it’s platform citing that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” This ought to be concerning for anyone who goes against the ‘mainstream’ narrative. The fact we have seen major globalist organisations such as Apple, Facebook and Youtube stifle free speech clearly indicates that they are concerned that people are actually listening to alt-media sources. Given the rise of anti globalist politicans such as Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Gert Wilders, it is no suprise that the globalist elite are wanting to rid social media or free media of alt-media sources.
Paul Joseph Watson has just released a video on Youtube describing this action by these tech companies as ‘the purge.’ He goes on to state that all within 12 hours of each other these companies have colluded to shut down InfoWars. He pointed that that no tech company gave any specific reasons as to why they shut Jones down, all they stated was that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” Watson also goes on to state that this has occurred three months before the mid terms commence. Coincidence?
There has often been debates over President Trumps tweets, some on the left want him banned from tweeting, Trump himself doesn’t trust ‘fakenews’ outlets such as CNN to provide a fair and balance report therefore Trump thrives on alt-media outlets and has embraced the use of social media to get his message out. This action by these major tech companies have set a precedence to ban anyone who they feel breaches the ‘mainstream’ narrative. Who will be next to be on the chopping block? Rebel Media who house Lauren Southern or The Daily Wire who champion Ben Shapiro?
We live in a modern society which even George Orwell couldn’t fictionalise. The growing pains of supressing free speech is becoming terminal. Instead of banning things we do not like, we need to confront it head on. Its the same with Alex Jones, just because you do not like him does not mean we should ban him. If the Globalists want to defeat him then argue against him but we all know that this has nothing to do with disagreeing with Jones. Its far more sinister, it is a plan to manipulate free speech to ensure they control the masses.
