The Purge Continues
As could be expected, the banning of Alex Jones and Infowars has not stopped with YouTube, Facebook, Spotify and Twitter. It has spread to more platforms, (MailChimp, LinkedIn and Disqus) who claim it was because of “hate speech”. Hateful to whom, you might ask? To their agenda?
This is obviously censorship under the guise of protecting against “hate speech” which includes, in their warped minds. anything which goes against their Globalist Agenda.
Famed video game designer Mark Kern also spoke out against the censorship:
Alex Jones is a test.
If they get to do this to Alex, unimpeded, they will starting hitting much more moderate targets.
Pick the flamboyant obvious one 1st. Then go from there.
The tactic, and timing prior to Midterms, is blatantly obvious to anyone who cares to lift the fold. https://t.co/Czy27CQMBP

The backlash against this obvious censorship is building. Regardless of whether or not Alex Jones is reinstated, the Globalist censors have done themselves irreparable harm, as the nation can see through this blatant and obvious attempt to censor opposing opinions.
As Mark Kern points out, they chose an obvious target for the first volley, and if they succeed with Alex Jones, they will move on to the next target. They aim to control the narrative. What they haven’t foreseen is that it won’t work, because they can’t shut everyone up. They’ll try, but they won’t succeed. There are just too many of us. We are a force that can’t be stopped.
“Hate speech” is a vague term chosen for its vagueness. Free Speech is free speech. That you might not like what I have to say, does not give you the right to prevent me from saying it. If you don’t like what someone is saying, or writing, on the Internet, or on the Mainstream Media, for that matter, then ignore it. Go somewhere else, or change the channel. We all have a basic human right to here what we wish to here, and to say what we want to say. That is what Free Speech is all about.
By championing censorship, the Globalist minions are showing their opposition to the Constitution, which enshrines their right to speak as well as ours. They wish to throw away the First Amendment in favor of “Safe Spaces”. When the document that protects their Rights is destroyed, what will protect them when they find themselves in the minority opinion? Be careful what you wish for.
Democrat Senator Chris Murphy, from Connecticut Tweeted:
He wants more websites taken down. What would he say if CNN, MSNBC or some other Globalist rag were taken down? He has abrogated the First Amendment Right of Free Speech by calling for censorship of more websites. Will he claim the opposite if CNN were to be shutdown? Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat/Globalist.
Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it.

Free Speech is for all, not just the chosen few.
