InfoWars and The Alex Jones Show have become the next in line to be censored by social media giants, amidst the banning of InfoWar’s YouTube channel today.
The controversial radio show host Alex Jones, 44, has been under fire for many years, facing accusations by mainstream media outlets for perpetuating fake news and falsifiable conspiracy theories.
After Facebook terminated four pages ran by Alex Jones early Monday morning, for supposedly violating their community standards regarding hate speech and content glorifying violence, Apple removed various InfoWars podcasts. They stated, “Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users.”
Spotify have also removed heaps of Alex Jones’ content. And this evening, the InfoWars YouTube channel, alongside its hundreds of videos, have disappeared.
This crackdown over the last 24 hours stems from the gradual censorship of Alex Jones and his colleagues in July, when Facebook gave Alex Jone’s official page a 30-day post ban and YouTube penalized certain uploads with community strikes.
Now, it appears that in a monumental virtue signal to prove the multinationals care about taking down news labelled fake without citation, they have outright silenced Alex Jones and his supporters.
