A most dangerous precedent has been set, an Orwellian nightmare.
Hiding behind a ‘Politically Correct’ term, “Hate Speech”, on August 6th both Apple and Facebook have evidently coordinated a take down of InfoWars (Alex Jones) from their servers. Apparently Facebook has now permanently banned their page.
“Spotify, YouTube, and Apple have also censored the right-wing outlet as liberal media has been aggressively targeting platforms that host InfoWars content.” source (gatewaypundit)
From InfoWars host Paul Joseph Watson on Twitter early Monday morning:
Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars.
For unspecified “hate speech”. They didn’t even tell us what the offending posts were.
This sets a chilling precedent for free speech.
To all other conservative news outlets – you are next.
The great censorship purge has truly begun.
Whether you love or loathe Infowars, this now confirms that Big Tech is working with legacy media to silence independent media.
“But it’s just a private company which can do what it likes”.
No it’s not “just a private company”.
This is a Big Tech monopoly working hand in hand with the establishment media to unfairly silence dissenters.
This is Chinese-style web control. Here and now. In the west.
