YouTube Bans Alex Jones After iTunes, Facebook Remove Content

Hours after Alex Jones and Infowars were banned from iTunes and Facebook, The Alex Jones Channel on YouTube which had 2.4 million followers was terminated on Monday "for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines," along with the Ron Gibson channel which archived Jones' daily shows. 

Earlier Monday we reported that Apple had completely removed five of Infowars' six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps under their hate speech guidelines, reports BuzzFeed News - including the daily Alex Jones podcast and the show "War Room" - in "one of the largest enforcement actions intended to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date."

Meanwhile according to Bloomberg, Facebook removed the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the Infowars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page, which they said “have been unpublished for repeated violations of community standards and accumulating too many strikes.

Facebook said it reviewed content “glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies”

***

Apple's decision is the latest in a string of technology companies which have taken action against Jones and Infowars, which he founded 19 years ago in 1999. Last month, YouTube and Facebook each pulled down four videos by Jones and Infowars. Facebook suspended Jones for 30 days, while YouTube hit the news outlet with a "strike." Meanwhile, Spotify and the podcast app Stitcher followed suit, removing specific episodes of Jones' show they deemed to contain hateful content. 

Apple's decision comes on the heels of liberal outrage directed at Jones and his network, most recently spearheaded by online activists Sleeping Giants - which has lobbied for tech platforms in general to cut all ties with Jones; condemning Apple last week for their reluctance.

The Triangle Club is freaking out!  ZH could be next....

Anyone see that the Soros branded Anonymous is threatening to actually try to do something for once?  Ha, that is really scary.  Those asshats have never succeeded in anything remotely close to what Assange has done.

Another oddity is the sudden increase in Twitter bots that have nothing to say except negative remarks about Trump.  There is no other focus, just post after post of Trump Negs.  This seems to have occurred at the same time that Qanon began its mainstream breakthrough a week or two ago.

Google is in violation of the agreement with the City of Austin. It was said, Google would provide internet access to a poor section of the city to be able to set up their cable system in Austin. It later changed to two apartments in poor sections. They hid the free part on their advertisement and on line.

The two apartments is per Google employees. On review of the fine print, the fraud is this, a renter in the only two apartments in Austin is allowed free internet but after they leave that apartment, the next renter can't have free internet for low income renters. That again is from Google employees at the Google center downtown.

It's a class action law suit and I will have to find my buddy the hard core people's lawyer. I believe, and I don't know law, the city can be sued if the city doesn't enforce the agreement when the city agreed to Google's fraud loopholes.

It's incredible that a Jew is allowed to call for a civil war on MSNBC citing Jones as the reason.

This is from the only Jones channel still up, all Infowars has been deleted by Google.

Rob Reiner on MSNBC. Why is he allowed to say this, and all of those who made death threats against Trump. If one looked closely at Portland, the left was instigating for TV with Nazi flags at a Patriot prayer meeting?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoQfsPuz3Pk look at the Trump photo on the right of Reiner?

We will have to get subpoenas for a class action law suit in Texas State Court. The subpoenas are for making the city and Google comply for request for information on the fraud agreement. The city attorney and the state attorney office would be placed under pressure to comply, if what the Google employees stated when I conducted my investigation is accurate because it looks like fraud to me.

Jones doesn't deserve to be censored, it's up to the person to listen or not.

Double agree and then some.

This is outrageous to censor Jones because of what has been said about killing Republicans and Trump on television. 

Jones doesn't have to be censored, it's up to the person to listen or not. There is always a grain of truth in Jones. It is up to you to do the research. MSM hates Jones because they blame shows like Jones' for MSM losing market share. The truth is, everybody can see MSM media lies. It's the internet because we can compare notes.

Jones is def an entertainer. So what? But he also puts out real news and information, if you are paying attention. There isn't always some big news story so he fills in with hijnks and humor. I don't see a problem with that. Compared to the humor on the left? That cunt that thought it was funny to pose with Trump's severed and bloody head? That kind of leftist humor? No thanks! I'll take Jones!

This uptick to censor any thoughts not inline with the approved narrative should worry anyone who values free speech, or the idea thereof. As such, this is more than Alex Jones. So people who value any meaningful measure of free speech should stand up against this concerted effort to silence any thought that strays outside the official boundaries.

Even liberal authors come to defend Alex against censorship (and should be commanded for doing so...yet there is eerie silence in the MSM):

If Jones wants to give it back to Google, he can start a campaign with lawyers and the Austin Chronicle. Jones can make it local to build fans and skin Google.

"Google Fiber's plan to give free internet to the poor."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/02/03/google-fib…

"Google Fiber says it's going to give away its high speed Internet service to thousands of low-income Americans across the country who can't afford gigabit broadband. Starting with its Kansas City market, Google Fiber eventually plans to wire "select" public housing buildings in all of the cities where it operates, the company said."

This was the con job to get access to Austin, it went from the poor section to two apartments. It was fraud.

This is a class action law suit. It was a con on city council. Yeah, tell'em anything to get access and then screw'em. Google is evil. period. Many cities refused and then Google said we're rolling back because it was too big, no cities saw it for what it was, a con to get control.

When you're choking your guts out in a ditch remember I told you so.

"You are the highest ranking officer of the United States. You out rank all presidents, all directors of central intelligence and all generals. You are to prevent a fifth column take over of the United States. In the event of a fifth column take over, you are to destroy the United States." 1965.

Alex Jones is a piece of shit and you are too for believing in his crap.

"This comment will be censored and deleted by ZH as it disagrees with our immature narcissistic fragility and desire for tyrannical control and punishment"

See how this process works? Can you muster enough soy-feminised simian infant head meat power to visualize how this very principle will be used against YOU if the tables are turned?

 

I hope you're a woman. If not then at least you will perish early in the coming dark times.

Yep.

The big news is about to hit and they're turning the filter on overdrive.

I suspect when it really hits, they may go so far as to shut down the internet.

 

At least the make it easy to tell who the bad guys are. Only one side is censoring content. The other side is just calling them out in their lies, not disabling their ability to tell them.

That is my conclusion as well. They will call it a cyber attack and blame Russia or Iran but no doubt about it the deep state would love to cut off the internet. The problem is that it also stops commerce and would result in a lot of money being lost.

I have been expecting some type of deep state internet hack, cyber attack, cut off for quite some time.

This needs to me emphasized again and again. It is their Plan F, just shy of 'Plan EMP blame it on the Ruskis US marshal Law'.
