InfoWars is SILENCED


There will be those who will gloat over this all with their own rationale.

Those people should be careful what they wish for.

It could be you next unless you join the Silent Majority

From Pastor Niemoeller about the Nazis...

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.



Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.



Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.



Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Whether you like it or not InfoWars had 2.4 million viewers (almost as many as CNN). This is the real reason they have been silenced.

Purged: Facebook Permanently Bans Infowars For "Hate Speech"

6 August, 2018

Facebook has permanently banned Infowars for using language that is derogatory towards Muslims, transgender people and immigrants in a shocking intensification of Big Tech’s censorship purge.



Facebook announced in a blog post that the four main Infowars pages were “unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes.”

"More content from the same Pages has been reported to us — upon review, we have taken it down for 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,” states the post.

Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars.

For unspecified "hate speech". They didn't even tell us what the offending posts were.

This sets a chilling precedent for free speech.

To all other conservative news outlets - you are next.

The great censorship purge has truly begun.


The termination of the pages follows an intensive lobbying campaign by the likes of CNN and BuzzFeed to pressure Facebook into banning Infowars.

A reminder that Facebook banned Infowars after lobbying by both CNN and Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL).

This isn't "just a private company," this is political censorship.https://www.infowars.com/dem-congressman-pressures-facebook-to-ban-infowars-during-live-hearing/ 


Last month, Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL) also pressured Facebook to ban Infowars during a hearing into social media censorship on Capitol Hill.

Wikileaks responded to the news with a warning that the ban represents a “global anti-trust problem.”

Infowars says it has been banned by Facebook for unspecified ‘hate speech’. Regardless of the facts in this case, the ability of Facebook to censor rival publishers is a global anti-trust problem, which along with San Francisco cultural imperialism, reduces political diversity,” said the whistleblower organization in a tweet

If free speech does not include controversial/unpopular/offensive speech, it doesn’t exist.

A society in which free speech doesn’t exist is doomed to collapse into authoritarianism.

The argument that Facebook and other social media giants are “private companies” and can do what they like is also a complete misnomer.

Big Tech have formed a monopoly by swallowing up content and they are now working hand in hand with the establishment media and leftist politicians to silence independent voices.

Whether you love or loathe Infowars, this now confirms that Big Tech is working with legacy media and lawmakers to silence independent media.

In places like Russia, the government shuts down the press, in America, CNN, Apple and Facebook fulfil that role.

Please continue to pressure lawmakers into enacting real solutions to secure digital rights and free speech online by circulating our master guide to online censorship and signing our petition to uphold free speech.

Now that Facebook has banned Infowars, it will be very interesting to see which conservative news outlets and commentators speak out and which ones remain complicit in silence.

Whatever you think of Infowars, they're coming for you next.





Chilling precedent? InfoWars block exposes Big Tech as no friend of free speech

The US Constitution explicitly forbids government censorship. So the Silicon Valley big tech companies named themselves the gatekeepers of goodthink, de-platforming anyone who runs afoul of their arbitrary ‘community standards.’

Alex Jones, the host of InfoWars, has often been derided by establishment media as a conspiracy theorist. Yet on Monday, Apple, Spotify, YouTube and Facebook proved right the motto of his show – “There’s a war on for your mind!” – by blocking or deleting InfoWars accounts from their platforms, saying he allegedly engaged in “hate speech” and violated their “community standards.”

Simply put, these corporations appointed themselves arbiters of acceptable political thought, and censored Jones for failing to comply with arbitrary political standards set in Silicon Valley boardrooms, not at the ballot box.

Whether you like @RealAlexJones and Infowars or not, he is undeniably the victim today of collusion by the big tech giants. What price free speech? https://www.infowars.com/purged-facebook-permanently-bans-infowars-for-hate-speech/
