Quick question but is the lawsuit filed in Texas?

This has nothing to do with free speech. This is a simple application of enforcement of rules on specific websites. Alex Jones didn't follow the rules, so he got booted off. It's that simple.

That's like saying the police arresting a man for murder is "censorship" because that man happens to have a news show.

The issue here is that though most countries have exceptions in freedom of speech for things like "shouting fire in a crowded theater" or hate speech these things are not always handled equally.

Jones has caused people to be harassed by giving targets to his crowd of fans. He had part in making the "Pizzagate" thing spread which has already cause one deranged guy with a gun to go around shooting in a pizza place.

It could just be that since the laws concerning freedom of speech are written from government vs citizen point of view this is a different matter but the issue with Jones is obviously between citizens and any censorship on him would be based on the things he has said about other US citizens. In Finland for example, the laws concerning freedom of speech are specifically from that "what if citizens are saying bad things about each other or inciting hate" pov and setting limits for what goes too far.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

The next domino to fall: TJ Kirk (aka The Amazing Atheist) made a joke on Twitter mocking the New York Times' decision to hire Sarah Jeong, and was summarily banned. (Note that Twitter has not banned Alex Jones.)
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Wanna know why Alex Jones isn't kicked off Twitter?  He and Jack are buddy buddy.

Ironbite-he recently called Jack an ally in his war.

Another Glorious Victory in the Infowars!  A new counteroffensive was launched by the FCC against Alex's radio station and reduced it to smoking rubble

At this rate and with this many losses, Alex Jones might have a huge psychotic meltdown. Like, a really embarrassing public meltdown.

That guy from Kony 2012 but worse. I'm thinking wrapping himself entirely in tinfoil and running around town shrieking "YOU'LL NEVER GET MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!"

Ironbite-this hasn't been a good week for Jones.

You're right about this being a bad week. But the ban is just for a week so next week we will get to enjoy his news about which chemicals turn frogs gay on Twitter.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

Or he'll hysterically overreact to short term consequences and amuse us tremendously.

Yeah I was late to this thread but before I saw this post I was going to respond to your prior one and say that Alex probably just thinks Jack is an "ally" because he's desperate for any semblance of authority and Jack didn't want to ban him at that time.

Another Victory to report!  Alex Jones held onto his base on Twitter longer then most of his other bases of assault, but in the end Info has won there too.  https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/sep/06/twitter-permanently-bans-conspiracy-theorist-alex-jones

Reportedly thousands of facts imprisoned in Jones concentration camps were liberated.

Apparently even YouPorn has banned him.

...YouPorn...

Were there porn videos of Alex Jones?

I do not want to know the answer to this question.

I do not want to know the answer to this question.

And you won't.

But the question will start to come back to your mind again and again.


At night when you can't get sleep you will try to repress the thoughts of whether it exists and what it would be.


Surely no one would want to see it?


And even so would he ever actually film it and release it?


There is no release from this pain because you will never uncover the truth.



At least finding out it exists would offer some kind of catharsis but you will never be certain because you rejected the truth once.


What would it even be? Would he have hired some actress or persuade his wife to make porn with him? Would he take a break every now and then to consume some of his MALE VIRILITY drugs and food additives that he sells?


At some point you think about googling it but dare not for the fear of actually finding what you seek and instead try to go back to sleep.

"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
