Multiple Corporate Social Media Platforms Simultaneously Ban Alex Jones for Thought Crimes…

The corporate thought police moved in unity today to unperson Alex Jones and his Info Wars media site from popular social media platforms.

Imagine if BP, Exxon, Chevron and Sunoco all moved, on the same day, at the same time, to charge $5.00/gal for gasoline at their service stations.  That would be illegal collusion to take advantage of a monopolistic position.  That’s essentially what happened today when Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify simultaneously banned the Alex Jones broadcast from their platforms; in an effort to purge him from the internet.

Ezra Levant has some perspective worth sharing:

“One of the terrifying things about the Facebook & Apple bans of everything Alex Jones has ever said, is that it is not based on any particular allegation. They haven’t identified a specific violation of their terms of service. They’re just un-personing him.”

“It’s not a legal approach (remedy a problem) and it’s not an intellectual approach (articulate what thoughts are now banned, and why) . It’s a de-platforming approach, a mob approach, hysteria. It’s how Antifa would act, if they owned a trillion-dollar tech company. Or China.”

“Roman emperors practiced “damnatio memoriae”, in English: to “damn the memory” of troublesome people, such as a rival brother they had killed. They literally scraped non-persons off of paintings, destroyed sculptures of them.”

“[W]hen it’s the Internet’s emperors doing the de-personing, it works just fine. Soon Alex Jones will never have existed. How would you prove otherwise, if you can’t find him on Google?”  (continue reading via twitter)

Oddly enough this was entirely predicted.  Back in the Fall of 2015 Matt Drudge appeared on the Alex Jones broadcast to warn of this exact situation.  Drudge talked about the need to stay off their platforms, because he could see the political use of platform control was likely to happen in the next few years.  In hindsight Drudge was eerily prescient:

.

The political left, and all the control elements of the Marxist Silicon Valley monopoly gatekeepers are moving in unity, taking action they deem will influence the 2018 elections and beyond.   In the big picture this coordinated effort is a move to attack political opposition by weaponizing and controlling social media platforms.

Regardless of anyone’s opinion of Alex Jones, all should take this action seriously and think through the long-term ramifications….

CTH has been sending warning flares for years:

We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

    It’s interesting that in the last 60 days or so the blatant Dem lean toward Socialism. Loud n proud…all in. No transition period, just jumped in the deep end.
    Perhaps they knew that the twitter ban/censor , the youtube deletions and now the very public AJ ban would draw parallels to socialist or communist tactics. They carefully crafted the narrative that socialism is good. It’s so good. Everyone who smart would of course support this shift They and their propaganda outlets were prepared to soothe any of the moderates by starting with AJ,

    Natural News guy’s two cents worth on what happened to Alex Jones.

    Today, tech giants Google / YouTube, Apple, Spotify, Stitcher and Facebook all simultaneously blacklisted Alex Jones and InfoWars. This coordinated, illegal censorship is clear proof of an organized criminal racket being conducted by the tech giants. The RICO Act allows for federal prosecution of such criminal conspiracy.

    The internet Dark Ages has now descended upon us, where radical left-wing tech giants run by deranged, mentally ill communists will decide whether your content qualifies as “hate speech.” What is hate speech? It’s anything uttered by a conservative.

    No due process, no appeal, no transparency of the evidence against you, no ability to present evidence in your defense, no means of recourse, nothing…

    The tech giants alone now decide what speech is allowed on the internet (and what speech is banned).

    Even if you didn’t support Alex Jones before all this, we must all stand with the right of Alex Jones to speak. [real rest of report at the below URL]

      AJ has been doing this same InfoWars programming for around 20 years but big tech decides they must ban him on all platforms now?
      Also take a look at what’s happening to the NRA. Same forces are trying to destroy them as well. NY suing the Organization, Banks, Insurance Co’s And other (former) partners have been pressured to never do business with them again.
      This is the big push before the election.
      If they win this round you can imagine what 2020 will be like.
      This is War!

      IF Congress had any Cahones they would pass a law that clearly defines what is and is NOT permitted for Free Speech, and it MUST stand Constitutional Muster. The standard would have to be exceedingly high…’Yelling Fire in a crowded theater’, ‘Inciting a RIOT’ (Democraps pay attention to this one, it IS YOU), etc. What Alex Jones has always done is exploit all kinds of conspiracy theories for audience share on the Internet and that is NOT in the same category as endangering others lives. Agree with Blue Ridge, the Tech Giants are participating in a Conspiracy to silence anyone they don’t agree with!

        Discussion of Supreme court cases: https://law.justia.com/constitution/us/amendment-01/16-government-restraint-of-content-of-expression.html

        […]Nonetheless, as discussed below, the Supreme Court has recognized that the First Amendment permits restrictions upon the content of speech in a “few limited areas,” including obscenity, defamation, fraud, incitement, fighting words, and speech integral to criminal conduct.1202 This “two-tier” approach to content-based regulations of speech derives from Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, wherein the Court opined that there exist “certain well-defined and narrowly limited classes of speech [that] are no essential part of any exposition of ideas, and are of such slight social value as a step to truth” such that the government may prevent those utterances and punish those uttering them without raising any constitutional issues.1203 As the Court has generally applied Chaplinsky over the past several decades, if speech fell within one of the “well-defined and narrowly limited” categories, it was unprotected, regardless of its effect. If it did not, it was covered by the First Amendment, and the speech was protected unless the restraint was justified by some test relating to harm, such as the clear and present danger test or the more modern approach of balancing the presumptively protected expression against a compelling governmental interest. In more recent decades, the cases reflect a fairly consistent and sustained movement by the Court toward eliminating or severely narrowing the “two-tier” doctrine. As a result, expression that before would have been held absolutely unprotected (e. g. , seditious speech and seditious libel, fighting words, defamation, and obscenity) received protection. While the movement was temporarily deflected by a shift in position with respect to obscenity and by the recognition of a new category of non-obscene child pornography,1204 the most recent decisions of the Court reflect a reluctance to add any new categories of excepted speech and to interpret narrowly the excepted categories of speech that have long-established roots in First Amendment law.[…]

      It’s not RICO. It’s never RICO: https://www.popehat.com/2016/06/14/lawsplainer-its-not-rico-dammit/

      RICO is a product of a certain time period when law enforcement needed a way of bringing down criminal enterprises which is different than criminal conspiracies. That is, the purpose of the organization itself must be criminal in nature, like a drug smuggling ring or a protection racket. There might be a front business involved, like a strip club or a car wash that launders the drug money, but at its heart the purpose of the organization must be criminal for RICO to apply.

      Apple, Google, FaceBook, etc, have certainly done something wrong, but I doubt it’s criminal, and even if it were, the fundamental enterprise of Apple is selling computers, the fundamental enterprise of Google is search, and the fundamental enterprise of FaceBook is advertising, not…whatever crime they think de-platforming Alex Jones is.

      You can use RICO to go after a drug smuggling ring using a strip club as cover. But if Ford Motor execs conspire to commit murder, you can go after the execs using the laws against murder and conspiracy, but you can’t use RICO, because the purpose of Ford Motor Company is making and selling cars, not murder, even if they committed murder while also selling cars. Does this make sense?

      I’m hoping that this first concerted move by the tech creeps will wake people up to their inherent danger. It is time that they were reeled in and controlled like any monopolistic utility. There are also a growing number of alternatives — like BitShut that I suggest exploring. It’s time to turn off YouTube and drop your FB site.

    Rush Limbaugh felt the full force of Democrat opposition. Democrats in the Senate composed an official letter to him threatening his show. They wanted to erase him from their lives, such was their reaction to his show and point of view. Rush had powerful people support him when he fought back but Alex Jones has less of that, I imagine.

    Did anyone here watch Homeland? There was the enemy of the first female President who was a radio personality with a zombie, gun supporting, rural hick fan base that hid the radio personality as he broadcast lies about the President. What a pathetic and transparent rendition of a Limbaugh/Jones fantasy figure! Enemy of the People, no less!

    Jones needs to file a federal civil rights lawsuit, and make the argument that social media platforms are “places of public accommodation” and subject to the same anti-discrimination rules as any business.

    Basically, if it isn’t illegal they must permit it.

    Once that is established, the ability of the Masters of the Universe to discriminate will be subject to
    oversight and much constrained.

    “Since Google and its subsidiary, YouTube, controls about a 90 percent of market share of worldwide internet searches, the Chinese government is only too happy to have such a powerful technology company to help them manipulate information and enhance their oppression over Chinese people.
    While Google has no problem bending its knee to authoritarians, it refuses to help the U.S. military. In early June, Google announced it wouldn’t renew a contract to do artificial intelligence work for the U.S. military after some strong opposition from its employees. The kind of work Google does with the Pentagon involves using machine learning and engineering talent to distinguish people and objects in drone videos.
    Worrying that Google’s AI work with the Pentagon may lead to development of lethal weapons, about 4,000 Google employees signed an open letter saying working with the U.S. military was putting users’ trust at risk, as well as ignoring its “moral and ethical responsibility.” Google’s senior management was also reportedly deeply conflicted about Google’s work with the Pentagon” – from The Federalist via WeazelZippers

    they are trying to prevent alternate sites from controlling the narratives …. as long as a critical mass of the population is kept ignorant and given baloney excuses they can maintain themselves… they already have their narratives ready as they all know the crimes already. They must control the narrative of the election… it was not enough to control the msm to stop trump…. they must also shutdown alternate news…even if they can do it just for the election they hope to have enough dems and swamp bush cia gop elected to stop trump and future prosecutions of their crimes.
    Are google, twitter, facebook, youtube, instagram, etc. all deep state shadow corps like back in the 80’s, they are funded massively by cia and defense contracts? Were they all just activated on behalf of an agenda to influence the coming election and to cover up the exposure of their crimes, was this necessary because they saw that although they controlled the MSM it was not enough to stop trump so now they must shut down alternate news. They dont need to prevent news from coming out they just need to control the major mass of narratives and the critical mass of the population info sources.

    Assange, Infowars and the Constitution
    7 Aug 2018

    https://www.theautomaticearth.com/2018/08/assange-infowars-and-the-constitution/

    Excerpt:

    This morning I woke up, looked around me, and saw a world sinking into a quagmire of voluntary censorship, a world willing to let someone far away choose what it can and cannot see of itself, and about itself. A world that no longer appears to recognize, or care, that this goes directly against its founding principles of liberty, freedom of speech, freedom of the press.

    I can think of many reasons why someone would want to ban Infowars and Alex Jones, and I don’t even know them other than from incidental tweets and comments. But I also acknowledge that that is not the point. Just because you would like to ban a person or organization, just because you don’t agree with them, doesn’t mean you can, or should be able to.

    And if Facebook, Google, Apple, Spotify and Pinterest -all within hours of each other-, think it’s a good idea to ban Jones regardless, they had better do a lot better than saying something about violating their ‘community standards’. They should identify specific instances where these alleged violations take place, and identify them publicly.

    You can’t ban anyone on vague ‘standards’ from media that cover half the planet. Because that’s a danger to the entire planet, and to all of mankind. As Facebook and Google are very busy lobbying Washington, Brussels et al to drop any anti-trust charges against them, and let them continue to be private enterprises, they are shirking ever close to the various intelligence communities.

    Politicians and secret agents alike have long recognized the potential Big Tech offers for controlling their populations. Long before those populations themselves have recognized the danger embedded in this potential. The treatment of Julian Assange and Infowars, 180º different as they are, puts all this in very sharp perspective.

    How are you going to be informed, and stay informed, of what’s happening in the world, of what your government does and plans, if your media, both old and new, conspire to let you know only what they want you to, and to present a version of the world, of reality, that they invented in order to safeguard their future and that of their sponsors? Who’s going to tell you what happens behind the infinite layers of curtains?

    What is most important here is not who Alex Jones is, or what he’s done and said. What’s most important is that he stands up for Julian Assange as the media, across the board, is either silent or actively smearing Assange with impunity.

  11. Coincidentally, today a large DNS service provider named CloudFlare has just launched a new streaming service that can be used on your own website/platform without needing to use the free-for-some-of-us social media platforms at all.

    If you don’t know about CloudFlare and you have a small site to manage, you might want to learn about their services. Up to this point, and do note that reservation, this service has been doing some good infrastructure work as regards to protecting sites from bad actors, etc. The business model is similar to others in that the bottom tier customers are allowed to have basic services, including ssl certificates at no charge. They scale up to some very large customers that are quite happy to pay for the advanced levels of service.

    I don’t know where their loyalties lie, but in the couple of years I’ve known about them, their work has been legit in a way that social media spyborgland has not. Competition is a good thing.

    Here is today’s email…

    IT IS TIME! When social media becomes censures then they become publishers – when they become publishers they fall under the law! It is time for the government to step in and fine them with humongous fines on a daily basis for every day someone is shadow banned, censured or dropped off because they decided the content doesn’t fit the liberal anti-American communist/socialist agenda! Let the lawsuits begin and may they ALL go out of business
