THE REAL REASON APPLE, FACEBOOK, SPOTIFY & YOUTUBE BANNED INFOWARS - This is what election meddling looks like

Explained by Maze...

[Paul Joseph Watson] Here are the real reasons Infowars is being purged by Big Tech; .... .... ... ... .... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... – Infowars is widely credited with having played a key role in electing Donald Trump. By banning Infowars, big tech is engaging in election meddling just three months before crucial mid-terms. .... .... ... ... .... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... – With the Infowars ban, Apple, Facebook , Spotify & YouTube (Google) have all now ascribed themselves the power to remove people & outlets from their platforms based on their political opinions. This power will be abused time and time again to meddle in elections. .... .... ... ... .... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... – The ban also sets the precedent that the mere charge alone of having committed “hate speech,” with no specific examples even provided, is enough to memory hole an individual or group’s digital presence. .... .... ... ... .... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... – The ban is just part of a wider censorship purge that also use stealth censorship, shadow banning and algorithmic manipulation to hide and bury conservative content. .... .... ... ... .... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... ... ... ... ... – Apple also chose to shut down Infowars after we repeatedly criticized them for working with and selling data to the Communist Chinese government. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

The similarity between this and Nazi Germany is stunning! Censorship was rampant throughout Nazi Germany. Censorship ensured that Germans could only see what the Nazi hierarchy wanted people to see, hear what they wanted them to hear and read only what the Nazis deemed acceptable. The Nazi police dealt with anyone who went outside of these boundaries. Censorship dominated the lives of the ordinary citizen in Nazi Germany.

Once they've taken out places like Infowars, what's next? They don't have to go to libraries and empty out physical books. No one reads books anymore. And these high tech companies will have no problem scouring the Internet of conservative truth.

Politicians pushing this kind of crap need to be, ..... dealt with.

Democrat Senator Chris Murphy has called for social media websites to ban more conservative news outlets in the aftermath of Infowars being purged from the Internet.

Senator Chris Murphy is from Connecticut . He is an enemy of the people. Here is Chris Murphy's contact info:
(860) 549 8463. Call him up, let him know how you feel about his opinion (please be respectful as you can. He needs to be overwhelmed, not threatened, which will end with you in jail)

So, you don't think a business has a right to have rules, or to run its business how it wants? I thought conservatives were supposed to be for smaller government and less regulation. I guess that's only if they run their business the way you agree with huh?

Bud, I believe a business has a right to run their business as they see fit. FB, and the other social media sites are a business and their only interest is profits and to keep their stock holders happy and making money. If they believe they will make more money keeping liberals happy over conservatives, that is their right.
Do you have the same problem with Rush Limbaugh not giving a large platform to the far left wing progressives also?

No I don't have a problem with Rush speaking his mind.

Of course he's not in the social media business though. And, if he was, and knocked off everyone with liberal views, I WOULD have a problem with it.

I don't know what if anything can be done about it. [Although I heard that Apple is reversing their decision.] I bet it was MY post that pushed them over the edge! But I certainly have right to complain - well not everywhere - but for now - lots of places.

Yes. I don’t like it when they do and I wish they didn’t. But I think they should be allowed to.

It is possible to change the law about this. Some European countries do have national media platforms that are not privately owned. If we had a truly publicly owned social forum, then it would be subject to different rules; it would have to allow any speech and couldn’t censor it unless it were illegal.

But for now, since they are private, they are free to moderate content. The best we can do is boycott them or start a new social platform.

I'm pretty sure the InfoWars crowd is well aware they can find Jones' work at prisonplanet.com

He is no more entitled to the use of FB, YouTube etc. than you or I am. His speech isn't being violated, it simply isn't being monetized by a third-party platform anymore.

There's a significant difference.

The major social networks are, in practice, the public forums of modern society. Allowing them to censor one half of the political debate in a country is putting an extraordinary amount of political power in the hands of a few multinational corporations.

That's dangerous, and that sword can easily cut the other way any time they like, so don't go thinking it won't effect the left - it absolutely will.

And Jones isn't the only voice "on the right" (he's a self-described liberal actually) being silenced, and deleting accounts isn't the only tactic these corporations use to do it. Mostly they just "shadow ban" people they disagree with, so their content is never seen. That's what they do with nobodies, but people will look for Jones, so that doesn't work too well on him. Won't be finding him now though...

Jones' right to express his opinion on social media is YOUR right to express YOUR opinion on social media, don't be hoodwinked into giving away your rights because you think it's a partisan issue. You should be fighting for Jones, because if they can do it to him, they can do it to you too, or anyone you support.
