After Alex Jones Social Media Ban, We Could Be Next

After Alex Jones Social Media Ban, We Could Be Next

Since Apple, Facebook and YouTube removed InfoWars' content, Jones and other InfoWars' employees have been tweeting about the "internet purge" and the "fight for free speech".

Facebook suspended Jones' account for 30 days on Monday due to repeated violations, includings posts that it said glorified violence and dehumanized others. "We'll enforce if he does", Dorsey tweeted.

But Twitter CEO Dorsey reinforced the fact that his site would not be joining the ban.

Dorsey took to Twitter on Tuesday night to address the situation, explaining that Jones had not directly violated the service's rules and that to ban him would be arbitrary.

Dorsey said he wanted Twitter to avoid succumbing to outside pressure but instead impartially enforce straightforward principles "regardless of political viewpoints".

"Folks, there was some bad news recently for extreme right-wing conspiracy theorist and bath salts spokesmodel Alex Jones", the Late Show host said.

Some users rebutted and weren't buying into Dorsey's logic for not removing Jones from the platform. While he doesn't look like Jones, he sounds just like him while parodying the Infowars host calling on viewers to send donations in wake of popular platforms turning against him.

Dorsey said that it's the responsibility of journalists to "document, validate, and refute" rumors and sensationalized issues spread by accounts like Jones's so "people can form their own opinions".

However, viewers are now flocking to Apple's app store as Infowars' content has yet to be removed from that platform. "While we welcome everyone to express themselves on our service, we prohibit targeted behaviour that harasses, threatens, or uses fear to silence the voices of others".

"The war on your mind is in full swing as globalists remove outlets of liberty and truth, starting with the top of the speak: Alex Jones", a statement on his website read. The ban applied exclusively to Jones' personal account, not the one million-strong Infowars page, which Jones helms. Jones was sued for defamation in three separate lawsuits by families who had children die in the Sandy Hook massacre in 2011, a shooting that Jones repeatedly said didn't actually happen.
