    Twitter Permanently Bans Alex Jones, Infowars

    One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey appeared before on Capitol Hill to tell lawmakers how his company doesn't discriminate against conservatives, the company permanently banned Infowars host Alex Jones from the platform for insults hurled at CNN's Oliver Darcy on Wednesday.

    Twitter told the Daily Beast that the final straw was when Jones said of Darcy and CNN:

    "Look at this right here. Goes around policing and calling for censorship, and then claims that Trump's wrong - there's no censorship of conservatives. You are incredibly shameful man. You're just - look at you. You are literally an anti-American, anti free speech coward. You're going to go down in the history books as the criminal news network.

    This is one of the main people right here who thinks we have no memory. Who sits there and lobbies. Sits there and lobbies people to take other news off... when CNN is the fakest WMD gulf Arab state dictatorship-funded... unbelievable." -Alex Jones

    "Those are the eyes of a rat," Jones added.



    “Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope. We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ previous violations,” the company posted on its Safety account.

    As we continue to increase transparency around our rules and enforcement actions, we wanted to be open about this action given the broad interest in this case. We do not typically comment on enforcement actions we take against individual accounts, for their privacy.
    — Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) September 6, 2018

    Twitter added that it will continue to take further action "regarding other accounts potentially associated" with Jones or Infowars, and will "take action if content that violates our rules is reported or if other accounts are utilized in an attempt to circumvent their ban."

    We will continue to evaluate reports we receive regarding other accounts potentially associated with @realalexjones or @infowars and will take action if content that violates our rules is reported or if other accounts are utilized in an attempt to circumvent their ban.

    Prior to confronting Darcy, Jones got into a verbal altercation with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) outside the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on internet censorship.

    The exchange begins with Jones condemning Silicon Valley tech giants for "shadow banning people en masse," to which Rubio deflects to foreign government interference in the US political process.

    After Jones says "thank God" Trump is addressing conservative censorship, Rubio then says "I don't know who you are, man" to which Jones replies "he plays dumb."

    “He’s not answering,” said Jones, adding: “The Democrats are doing what you say China does.”

    “I don’t know who you are, man,” responded Rubio. “I don’t really go on your website.”

    “That’s why you didn’t get elected. You’re a snake,” Jones fired back, touching the senator’s shoulder to keep his attention. “Marco Rubio the snake. A little frat boy here.”

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Yes, Nazi death camps and Twitter bans are exactly the same, you're absolutely right.

    The Nazis would have begun things by pulling plugs from wallsockets electric, then banning batteries.

    Zippy, his complaint then was about WHO was running them and WHO was sent in them,
    not that they were to exist? --- Right now we are creating a vast camp system thru gov't
    money at the FEDERAL level, and it's again hurricane season!!! Alex Jones is cool with it.

    Do you have a problem with people burning their own property?

    Yes I do, what if anything I want the government to do about it is a different question.
    The case of twitter etc. has been discussed in other threads.
    The point here is that just like the NAZIs silicon valley is attempting to bully people into not speaking their mind or questioning authority, if they are not opposed in the marketplace and the culture they will impose a totalitarian regime on us.

    He also broke the MIAC story,, as well as a Secret Prison,,,, was covering Bundy Ranch when the Media would not.

    I don't care for his style,,, but he has broken open TRUE Headline Stories.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    And so we should choose your flavor of totalitarianism in order to protect ourselves from their flavor of totalitarianism?

    Ancapistan book burnings every Thursday! Burn The Machinery of Freedom especially, since David Friedman doesn't "hate the state."

    Yeah, it is NAP compliant. Whether that absolves book burnings or indicts the NAP is a separate issue.

    There's a couple of issues that need to be addressed here.

    1. Has the government controlled traditional media for decades and are there abundant ties supporting that claim?

    2. Would that same government not seek to control the powerful "new kid" known as Social Media?

    If you accept even the notion of question one, and what honest individual would not, how can you deny the truth behind number two, without willfully choosing to do so? Logical fallacies like that are saved for ANTIFA and Femnazi fruitcakes, not exactly present on this forum (openly).

    Under the notion that yes, its likely, and hell, it's highly probable, if not certain that indeed, The United States Federal Government is actively manipulating and controlling our media... is that the Free Press or a gross violation of it?

    You know the answers here.
