Alex Jones is just the first major target of the Left. If they can get away with banning him from most sites, the floodgates will open and they will begin censoring a vast number of conservative and alternative media voices.

Next they will be coming after hundreds/thousands of other prominent conservative, libertarian, and even anti-establishment left-wing YouTubers, Twitter and Facebook users, bloggers, and news outlets -- such as Paul Joseph Watson, Mike Cernovich, Lauren Southern, Candace Owens, Breitbart News, etc.

First they censored white nationalists. But I wasn't a white nationalist, so I didn't care.
Next they censored Alex Jones. But I wasn't a "conspiracy theorist", so I didn't care.
Then they censored Trump supporters. But I didn't support Trump, so I didn't care.
Then they censored climate change deniers, those who oppose illegal immigration, those who oppose the homosexual/transgender agenda, and those who oppose feminism.
Then...only those who toe the line with the Leftist/Establishment agenda can speak.

Here is Vox pushing for vast censorship of "extremist" right-wing and "conspiracy theorists" on YouTube:

I'm not going to debate the First Amendment here, but I will chime in and say Alex Jones is one of the worst people on the face of this earth. I'm glad some folks are coming around to this.

Why do you believe Alex Jones is so bad?

Conservative talk host trying to silence someone, guess it is not just liberals that try to silence people they do not agree with on topics

The commie Lamestream media does not think Alex Jones has been censored enough.

They are still foaming-at-the-mouth, now focusing on having him banned from Twitter as well.

CNN: "Twitter says Infowars hasn't 'violated our rules.' It looks like that's not the case"


Here is a disgusting Chicago Tribune article smearing Alex Jones and his listeners as "white supremacists" -- which is completely false, as Alex Jones is an anti-racist that is in favor of multiculturalism, which I know first hand having listened to his show for years. This is just all the Left knows how to do -- play the Race Card.

The article goes on to defend the recent racist tweets by Sarah Jeong (now of the New York Times) against white people, and to demonize white men, saying that "minorities and women" are justified to discriminate against white men because of all the "historical persecution by white men against others".

With all due respect she's not closing down his social media accounts. Bad comparison.

I think this gets back to the ultimate goal of trying to take down talk radio...the one area that the right actually has a free platform to speak.

And yet some will cheer this...which is seriously political fascism at its finest form.

Free speech includes the freedom to ignore people you don't care to hear the opinions of. More people need to learn how to do this instead of being "offended" at every turn in their daily lives. Offended culture status is political correctness on steroids.

I wish more people would ignore,instead each side has decided the other side has no right to exist and we end up with childish name calling that all liberals/progressives are Communists and all conservatives are Nazis.

100% correct with the comparison to talk radio. This is all about political power. The Left just wants to shut down their competition. And the internet, where real freedom of speech exists (unlike Leftist-controlled press, television, and Hollywood), is where the right has the platform to speak, and as a result is now making gains in the culture war and politically.

Here is an excellent video on the whole situation, that brings up a number of very good points, including:

1. The Left hysterically argued that a few Russian bots supposedly "undermined our democracy" by allegedly promoting a few stories in the media. Yet, the Left cheers the draconian censorship of a vast number of conservatives on social media platforms. Isn't this a REAL case of attempting to "undermine our democracy" by trying to shut down the political speech of the conservative/right side?

2. The premise of a democratic form of government is that the average person is smart enough to analyze a ton of information and make intelligent decisions on how to govern our nation. Yet, the Left and Establishment are making the argument that the opinions of the "conspiracy theorists" and conservatives are too "dangerous" to allow the public to even hear these arguments. They argue that the masses must be told how to think and vote by the Left/Establishment, and not be allowed to even consider alternative viewpoints.

3. The Left uses "hate speech" as the excuse to censor conservatives. But "hate speech" IS protected by the First Amendment. Furthermore, it is a subjective standard and it is enforced with a huge double standard. The Left hates Christians, conservatives, and white people. But they do not censor Leftists on these platforms when they espouse their hatred against Christians, conservatives, and white people. For example, Twitter does not censor prominent Leftist actors/etc when they openly call for Trump to be assassinated, or the thousands of tweets espousing hatred of white people (such as those by Sarah Jeong of the New York Times). And conservatives are censored for "Islamophobia", but Leftists openly espouse their hatred of Christianity without being censored.

Not all Christians are conservatives. To say the Left hates Christians is not true.

To say some on the Left and some on the Right hate Christians is true.

To say some on the Left and some on the Right have displayed behavior that is not Christian is true, as it is also true some on the Left and some on the Right have displayed behavior that is Christian.

Saying the Left hates Christians is a much of a false statement as saying the Right cares about unborn children but are ok with children being shot while in school.

For those who don't know Crowder, he's wearing a fake mustache and pretending to be a hippie leftist in the interview.
