    another deflection.

    Right, the antifa losers, the real fascists, are self funded from mommy’s basement.
    What you say when you’ve lost the argument and the only one you have is based on fear.

    I have already stated why.  It isn’t just Alex Jones that gets deleted.

    Candace Ownes was deleted from Twitter for a period because she substituted Jews and Blacks for Whites in copying that new NY Times editors racist tweets.  Meanwhile the NY Times keeps her employed.

    So it is ok for hate speech if it is against whitey.  You’ll get a top level job at a huge newspaper.  You can call a black woman a white supremacist and be ok.

    But if you are a shock jock you get banned.  If you sub Jew or Black for White you get suspended.  

    Democrats are the real racists.

    Let me know when the Koch brothers or Adelson or any other smattering of conservative billionaires want to start competing versions of twitter and facetard. Then they can spew as much as they want and block those evil liberals from posting alternative views. For someone who claims they don’t listen, Follow or participate, you sure do care an awful lot.

    Off the top of my head, I can't think of the "liberal" or "left" equivalent to Alex Jones that should be getting banned. Either one of you know or is this just a generic whataboutism?
    It's a hopeless situation...

    I stated that "I actually understand what you are saying"; I was trying to explain unsung thinkings a little better (tell me if I am wrong Unsung). I know nothing about info wars and could care less if it is banned or not.  I hope that if a liberal/left group does the same thing as infowars that they ban them as well.

    Completely unrelated to infofars  I do find it a little bit disturbing/perplexed that the editor in question that was recently hired by the New York Times is still employed by them based on her past tweets.    
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    It's ok, don't bother trying to explain to them.  Never apologize either, you'll still get the same result.  

    My entire point was to apply it to all users, not just those you disagree with.
  • What did he contribute to society or humanity except bullshit theories & hate and plain lies now if we could only remove the liar in chief ...Cruz is not only a bugger eater also an idiot...

    Cruz gobbled up that booger like a champ! And Rand Paul doesn't wash his hands after going poo.

    I have already stated why.  It isn’t just Alex Jones that gets deleted.

    Candace Ownes was deleted from Twitter for a period because she substituted Jews and Blacks for Whites in copying that new NY Times editors racist tweets.  Meanwhile the NY Times keeps her employed.

    So it is ok for hate speech if it is against whitey.  You’ll get a top level job at a huge newspaper.  You can call a black woman a white supremacist and be ok.

    But if you are a shock jock you get banned.  If you sub Jew or Black for White you get suspended.  

    Democrats are the real racists.
    I actually understand what you are saying, if you are going to uphold your policy then be fair and do it to everyone who is in violation.  Just don't pick and choose because you don't like their political background.  
    You agree that democrats are "the real racists"?

    And in what way are they "picking and choosing"?
    I stated that "I actually understand what you are saying"; I was trying to explain unsung thinkings a little better (tell me if I am wrong Unsung). I know nothing about info wars and could care less if it is banned or not.  I hope that if a liberal/left group does the same thing as infowars that they ban them as well.

    Completely unrelated to infofars  I do find it a little bit disturbing/perplexed that the editor in question that was recently hired by the New York Times is still employed by them based on her past tweets.

    Anyone saying Infowars is just a "right wing" outlet is either misled or are purposely misleading. It's a whacko conspiracy outlet purposely trying to divide and outrage people by spewing outright hatred. There are no right wing outlets being shut down.

    I’m hard pressed to think it’s racist liberals who keep shooting up Emmitt Till’s sign, but what do I know? Maybe if I listened to / watched Infowars it would all make sense.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/emmett-till-sign-vandalized-with-bullets-35-days-after-being-replaced-2018-08-06/

    The false equivalency to Candace Jones is just that, but keep crying about other people trying to deflect. I also have yet to see anyone on the left whose behavior could be compared to Jones going after the Sandy Hook families. If you don’t have empathy for those people, you’re an awful human being. I don’t feel like there’s much gray area there.

    How these tech companies waited this long to ban Infowars is beyond me.

    Really!  That guy is like that dysfunctional kid who will do anything to get negative attention because he wasn't loved as a young child.  He throws tantrums and bullies and spews vile verbiage and draws flies to himself like turds in the sun.

    Exactly

    How do some of you guys not know about Alex Jones and infowars? Been asleep since 9/11?

    Unsung is clearly showing he was a devout listener, probably even harrassed the victims families of Sandy Hook?

    I'm guessing he was removed because he said something shocking and unfathomable to decent people, right?

    Back in the day we used to just change the channel.
    Back then, everything you saw was curated by individuals (network executives) who already had decided they wanted you to see it. You may have had the ability to change the channel, but you still weren't in charge of what you saw and what perspectives you were exposed to. The fact that now things can be self-published onto a network who then catch and remove unwanted uploads after the fact doesn't change this reality. In other words, there has never been socially- or corporately- mandated freedom of speech, nor should there be. Government tells us we have to accept that people can make ugly statements, but our free society encourages us to remind individuals that those statements are ugly, or to withdraw our wallets to only allow revenue to those whose values we believe in.

    Personally, I think removing Alex Jones is a duct tape fix. The real fix would be teaching citizens to think critically so they knew better than to accept his unsubstantiated bullshit, and allowed his nonsense to fade away into obsolescence or be condemned loudly as garbage.
