NIXED: Paypal will no longer process Alex Jones/Infowars payments

Alex Jones, known by some as a true patriot and known by others as the world’s frontman for conspiracy theories, has been banned by all the major technology companies, from Facebook to Twitter — but now PayPal is going after Jones’ livelihood itself.

The online payment service said on Friday it was ending its business relationship with Infowars and related websites, adding that an extensive review of their controversial content “found instances that promoted hate and discriminatory intolerance against certain communities and religions that run counter to our core value of inclusion.”

This move was a gigantic leap for online censorship and has been described by Infowars as “nothing less than a political ploy designed to sabotage an influential media outlet just weeks before the mid-term elections.”

Infowars has been given 10 days to find another payment processor, it said in a blog post. Infowars runs an online storefront that sells products including a male “vitality formula” and various other health supplements.

PayPal pulled the plug on Jones just weeks after Twitter permanently suspended Jones from its social-media platform. Twitter’s decision comes shortly after Jones confronted journalists and Sen. Marco Rubio during a congressional hearing at which Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testified. Jones then attempted to confront Dorsey as he was leaving the building.

Apple recently ridded iTunes of Jones’ podcasts, saying it would not tolerate hate speech, while YouTube and Facebook both took similar steps against Jones after what they described as repeated violations of their terms of service.

He is also a huge advocate for the message of liberty. The moment he was awakened was when he witnessed the 2012 Republican debate, where libertarian legend Ron Paul was the only one with a real difference in opinion. The question was about a national ID card. Everyone thought it was a good idea, until it got to Ron Paul. “NO! That’s preposterous. That is NOT what freedom is all about.” said Paul. This was a huge wake up call, and ever since, Jack has been a staunch advocate for liberty and a moving force against the global elite! Follow me on twitter - @LibertyDragon1
