Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Alex Jones.

Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify ban Infowars' Alex Jones

All but one of the major content platforms have banned the American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as the companies raced to act in the wake of Apple’s decision to remove five podcasts by Jones and his Infowars website.

Facebook unpublished four pages run by Jones for “repeated violations of community standards”, the company said on Monday. YouTube terminated Jones’s account over him repeatedly appearing in videos despite being subject to a 90-day ban from the website, and Spotify removed the entirety of one of Jones’s podcasts for “hate content”.

Saw that.

What about the followers who are still convinced that the earth is flat and that Sandy Hook parents were paid by Deep State to weep on camera? [Which BTW is offered as his belief, not a joke. Piling anguish like that on those people is disgusting.]
To borrow a popular slogan, We're looney, and we vote!
They don't need Jones, he needed their ad revenue. The system is still in place; men's hearts still the same, left or right ventricle. Enjoy.
I saw some expected references to free speech issues. It will be interestingly to see that rhetoric play out, as fb and such are private entities, setting their own rules for 'allowable speech', as here. fb and such have their own vulnerabilitie$, though, so they can be pressured.
BTW, saw the clicklead to an article on Bezos and Amazon, with a nice picture of ... The Z-man! Stayed that way a couple of days, at least. More money than God, and can't get no respect!

There are some people running around with some rather odd ideas.

With the internet and social sites they can push out those ideas.

And, at the end and on national TV

he had to listen to the Army's lawyer ask, "Have you no shame, sir?"
