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

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”
Apple also deletes podcasts as Big Tech censorship intensifies

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