Twitter Permanently Banned Alex Jones’ And Infowars’ Accounts

Donate

On September 6th, Twitter permanently banned Alex Jones’ and Infowars’ accounts from their platform.

Twitter released a statement regarding the ban: “Today, we permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope,” the tech giant said. “We took this action based on new reports of tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts’ previous violations.”

Twitter also vowed to hunt any other “other accounts potentially associated” with Alex Jones to prevent attempts to circumvent the ban. “We will continue to evaluate reports we receive regarding other accounts potentially associated with @realalexjones or @infowars and will take action if content that violates our rules is reported or if other accounts are utilized in an attempt to circumvent their ban,” the statement said.

The company does not usually comment on individual accounts, but said it “wanted to be open about this action given the broad interest in this case”. The two accounts had about 1.3 million followers combined.

As reported by RT, the reasoning behind the ban is “abusive behavior,” after Alex Jones was filmed insulting Oliver Darcy a CNN journalist on the sidelines of a Senate social media hearing. He was also filmed by CNBC asking questions to a US. Senator Marco Rubio, at one point claiming that the Senator threatened to physically hurt him. This happened after Jones patted Rubio on the shoulder, which the Senator asked him not to do and that he could “handle himself.”

After the September 5th hearing, in which Facebook and Twitter participated, Jones clashed with Sen. Marco Rubio over alleged political censorship by the Silicon Valley giants. He later confronted CNN journalist Oliver Darcy in a Capitol Hill hallway and recorded himself aggressively insulting his ‘biased’ reporting and attacking his appearance.

“I was taken down not because we lie but because we tell the truth and because we were popular, and because we dared to go to that committee hearing and stand up to Rubio, stand up to the lies of mainstream media and speak the truth,” Jones stated following his suspension, cited by RT.

“And then we ran into Oliver Darcy, who is the secret police captain, who admits he goes around and gets people like Infowars taken off other platforms because we confronted that monster that has abused us and lied about us,” Jones said about the encounter that reportedly got him banned.

Alex Jones had approximately 900,000 followers on Twitter, while InfoWars had around 430,00. He called the ban an act of “war” against conservative voices, he also urged his supports to resist “the full-on assault on this country.”

“This signifies that gloves are off, they are trying to destroy our basic birthright of the First Amendment,” Jones added. “The political establishment does not like Democrats or Republicans being challenged and they want to go out after the president… They are panicking, they are scared. They are making a move against all of us.”

Alex Jones is also currently being sued for defamation by the parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. He has repeatedly claimed the shoot was a “giant hoax.”

During the September 5th hearing, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testified before Congress and insisted that the platform was impartial and denied any political bias against conservatives. When he was asked whether Twitter censors conservative voices. Mr. Dorsey said his company did “not use political ideology to make any decisions,” but admitted the company’s algorithms had not always been “impartial.”

On August 5th, 2018, a wave of censorship, targeting alternative media and independent activists started. It all started with what appeared as a coordinated attack by Apple, Facebook and YouTube on broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his InfoWars network. The companies summarily banned his and his websites content from their platforms. Twitter did not follow suit back then; however new developments appear to have “forced its hand.”

Alex Jones’ response to the August ban wave blamed mainstream corporate media and its dwindling audience for becoming engines of censorship and harassment against those that, according to him, follow the constitution and attempt to restore the US republic. He further said that they are attempting to shut down all of their competitions and calls mass media corporations terrorist organizations, most of them being on the communist Chinese payroll. He further elaborated that this is all a bid to meddle in the midterm elections, the tech giants are doing it to protect political interest.

    This may sound daft, but I think the powers that be need a civil war in the US.

    • Ivan Freely

      Plausible. Wars are good distractions to keep the public from hanging them from lamp posts.

      • Britam

        Agreed. Just add some Bernays Sauce and serve hot.

    • Britam

      Not daft at all. It needn’t rise to the level of civil war. Some ‘civil disturbances’ would be the perfect pretext for suspending the Constitution until “the emergency has passed.” Which said emergency never will. That is how dictators and authoritarian regimes the world over have come to power since politics began. I’m worried about the near future in America.

      By the way, I don’t blame Trump for this. He is merely the most visible symptom of the rot in the American ruling elites. Trump is an object lesson in the fact that the Status Quo will violently oppose so called ‘extremists’ from either side of the political spectrum.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        No need to worry about suspending the Constitution. Many of the important freedoms granted by it have been done away with by the aristocracy / plutocracy governing the country such as: Freedom of Speech (as long as you agree with the state otherwise, censorship), Freedom to assemble (as long as it’s a sanctioned cause otherwise be willing to get shot or imprisoned), habeas corpus (unless the aristocracy / plutocracy has come up with a special label for you) and don’t forget civil forfeiture just because they can.

        Trump was the monkey wrench (not a member of the ruling elite) thrown into the works of the Deep State to disrupt it. That was the intention I’m sure of the people that voted for him. Incidentally, if he had not had his own money, the electorate wouldn’t have heard of him. The aristocracy / plutocracy desired a Clinton and not a Bernie Sanders as you can see by what the Democrats did with their primary and the Deep State assault through all of the Deep State’s orifices since Trump took office; I would’ve said power but power hasn’t resided in the office of the President since the CIA murdered JFK.

        • SG

          Another likely possibility is that the Mossad also had a hand in JFK’s assassination with help from the FBI and the CIA, the same has also been said about 9/11.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            Mossad is certainly very active in many events, however, in the murder of JFK, the CIA was the principle organizer behind the event. ‘The Devil’s Chessboard’ by David Talbot certainly bears that out.

          • zman

            I’d have to think about that…JFK was on to the Israelis and their desire for nukes, which he opposed. The Mossad and the CIA have been tight for some time. Then there is the GHWB connection to both and his likely involvement with Dallas.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            Check out that book. You’ll get an insight into the character of Allen Dulles who ran the CIA, the man behind assassinations and coups in Europe and Latin America. He was truly a psychopath and the type who would take his being fired by JFK personally as well as feeling wronged when the President (how dare he) didn’t follow through on Dulles’s planned Bay of Pigs operation. He also would want to stop JFK from smashing his beloved CIA into a million pieces.

    • TiredOfBsToo

      No, just chaos so that they can continue their world conquest unabated without worrying about the population at home observing the true realities of their situation.

        Quite honestly i think they’re trying to manufacture public consent for censorship, which isn’t working too well. Apparently 73% of Americans say they would rather die defending free speech than allowing it to rot.

        http://www.renegadetribune.com/poll-shows-85-americans-value-free-speech-pc-censorship-majority-die-protect/

        [Perhaps more importantly, 73% of Americans agreed with Voltaire’s famous
        quote — “I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death
        your right to say it,” — and believe that the right to free speech is so
        important that they would be willing to die to defend a person’s free
        speech rights.

        Despite most Americans believing free speech is a critical right,
        only 28% believe they still have free speech today—with most Americans
        believing that Constitutional protections are often skirted in favor of
        political correctness.]

          First I have to say, I liked those gun rights posters especially the “you’d know it” one.

          Regarding Polls…. they also showed Clinton projected to win the 2016 election….. whoops.

          As far as free speech is concerned, everyone believes in THEIR right to free speech while roughly around half believe it’s the free speech of others they have a problem with.

          As regards “Jew actions”…. I don’t believe Jews act as a collective anymore than I believe Muslims and Christians act as a collective. I do believe subsections of professed religious groupings act collectively like Zionists for example, Wahabis, Evangelicals etc. Of these sub groupings I would place as the most dangerous Zionists, followed extremely closely by Wahabis and then Evangelicals respectively.

          • SG

            I certainly agree with you to an extent, however I hope you are aware of the vastly disproportionate role Jews play throughout banking, politics, media and academia. There are Jews who have admitted this themselves, most of whom happen(ed) to be pro-Jewish as well.

            And I certainly agree that the majority of Jews no longer act as a collective and are much more individualistic than ever, however most of them retain their cultural influences and do not stand against the agendas of the plutocratic elites (many of whom are Jewish). The globalist elites conspire with those of both Jewish and Gentile origin, from corporate CEOs to media anchors, to Neo-Marxist propagandists and government employees across many fields.

            These also include financiers of various astroturf NGOs, such as in the case of Hungarian Jew George Soros and his Open Societies Foundations, as well as similar fake philanthropies financed by the Rockefeller foundation and numerous others to buy influence and push forward with their globalist agenda.

            I copied the time stamp up to point where Milo Yiannopoulos speaks about the disproportionate Jewish influence in society.

            Either Jews are vastly more intelligent than us Goyim (i.e. human
            “cattle”), which they aren’t as proven by rigorous IQ testing despite
            what they usually claim, or they engage in nepotism amongst themselves
            and the Gentiles who conspire with them.

            Jewish Talmudic Quotes: https://rense.com/general86/talmd.htm

            Keep in mind that Jews and others who believe them tend to lie
            (sometimes unknowingly, especially in the case of those who believe such lies) about controversial quotes found in the Talmud and their other religious sources; this has remained apart of their modus operandi for thousands years throughout history to avoid righteous persecution for their religion teachings, which tend to promote harmful behavior towards Gentiles, as their teachings are of supremacist and exploitative nature.

            I’ve spotted a number of lies about several quotes from the Talmud as being fraudulent, however by going through their own religious scriptures many of these these claims can be proven false. This is why sanitized versions of the Talmud, Zohar, etc exist which omit such passages.

            “Because the Talmud conspires against gentiles, if a Jew was ever
            caught telling a gentile what the Talmud really says, such a person
            deserves death.” – Jewish Encyclopedia “Gentile” (p. 623)

            “A Goy who pries into the Talmud is condemned to death, for it is written, it is our inheritance, not theirs.” Sanhedrin 59a.

            “Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.” – Baba Kamma 113a

            “In the house of the Goy [Goy means unclean, a disparaging term for a non-Jew] one looks as on the fold of cattle.” – Tosefta, Tractate Erubin VIII

            “That the Jewish nation is the only nation selected by God, while all the remaining ones are contemptible and hateful.

            That all property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which consequently is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples. An orthodox Jew is not bound to observe principles of morality towards people of other tribes. He may act contrary to morality, if profitable to himself or to Jews in general.

            A Jew may rob a Goy, he may cheat him over a bill, which should not be perceived by him, otherwise the name of God would become dishonoured.” ~ Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat, 348.

            Either jews are vastly more intelligent than Gentiles on average (which they aren’t as proven by rigorous IQ testing despite what they usually claim) or they engage in nepotism amongst themselves and the Gentiles who conspire together with.

            I also believe that the majority of jews are often misled by the lies of rabbis, as well as Jewish and Gentile elites and their various puppets and conspirators. If this isn’t the case, they’re great at hiding it, but not all of them are good at it as
            I found out by speaking to a number of them, as well as observing them
            in person and over the internet through video and conversation. Furthermore, Jewish elites are much wealthier and are a great deal more influential than their Gentile counterparts.

            countries, including Germany and other European countries among the
            nations of the world, dropped from an average national IQ score of approximately
            100-110 to something like 97 as a result of the refugee crisis.

            Yes all of that is true except that Jews that support Israel are Zionists just like their Christian supporters, whereas Jews that don’t are not. Also, the globalist Jews are going to be supporters of Israel and therefore Zionists.

          • SG

            Although it’s certainly a valid possibility that not every Jew is aware of the true reasons for anti-Jewish sentiment, I believe there to be fault found in both camps whether Jew or Gentile. Plus the advent of modernity has led to many Jews assimilating into the populations of their hosts’.

            I prefer use the term anti-Jewish sentiment as opposed to “antisemitism”, since Ashkenazi Jews aren’t exactly ethnically Semitic and are the product of biological crypsis as apart of the Jewish evolutionary strategy. To say they are Semitic in the spiritual sense would mean that antisemitism should technically not only Jewry, but all non-Semitic followers of Islam and Christianity as well.

            ‘Haaretz’ says many Orthodox [Jews] are taught to see non-Jews as ‘not quite human:

            https://mondoweiss.net/2014/01/haaretz-orthodox-taught/

            “Mad ‘Max’? The Paradox of the Murdered Brooklyn Hasid”: https://bit.ly/2MguWIw

            [According to Samuel Katz, who was brought up as a Satmar but later became secular, boys in the community are taught that non-Jews aren’t quite human. Speaking from Berlin, where he is doing biomedical research on a Fulbright fellowship, Katz explained that growing up in such a community,

            “you don’t see commonality with people who aren’t Jewish. There is a completely different taxonomy of people. There are Jews and then there are non-Jews, who don’t have souls.”

            When the messiah comes, “every boy is taught that the bad goyim will be killed and the good gentiles will have the privilege of serving us, of being our slaves,” he told Haaretz.]

            Yes to the ignorant populations, condemning Israel’s actions is tantamount to anti-Semitism and yes to these same ignorant populations, they don’t understand that the Arabs living in the Levant are Semitic while the majority of Zionists residing in Israel, the ones always claiming everyone who doesn’t approve of them are anti-Semitic, are not. I’m also quite sure that most secular Jews are cognizant that Israel propagates anti-Jewish sentiment through it’s actions in the Middle East while claiming falsely that it’s about being Jewish, when in actuality it’s nothing more than a psychopathic land grab and push for power just as has been done by ALL colonial powers including the US in it’s push for world conquest.

            I’ve been round and round with an Israeli supporter before regarding the Talmud and other topics and don’t need to rehash them. The individual showed signs of intelligence but had been clearly brain-washed from birth by the fact of being born into a family of nutters including his synagogue. There exist also another group of orthodox Jews who don’t agree with Israel, though I’m sure you’re aware of their existence. Extremist Muslims, Christians, Jews or any other religious groupings go through similar indoctrination as the Zionist I mentioned in this paragraph. I choose to concentrate my energies on those government entities run by criminal cabals who lust for power and world conquest regardless of their religious beliefs, as only their actions matter and I care not one iota how they were brought up.

          • SG

            I get what you’re saying and it is true that not everyone of any particular religious or racial/ethnic group are all on the same side, nor are they all aware of other historical perspectives.

            Even though the Torah and the Talmud endorse usury, and so do parts of the bible which support usury and parts of the bible which are against it, I personally find the notion of being the chosen people rather arrogant myself and reminiscent of a master race ideology which they often attribute to the National Socialists of Germany at a time when Whites believed themselves to be superior to all other races.

            And yet the Jews who created the Frankfurt School, the progenitor of modern liberalism (aka Cultural Marxism) privately described themselves as radical Jews who themselves believed that Jews are the master race, while simultaneously promoting multiculturalism for Whites (but not Jews) and rallying against racism, despite hypocritically holding onto their own racist sentiments.

            When faux liberals complain about an imaginary White privilege in Western societies, they neglect to mention the very real Jewish privilege as their Jewish magnates have more sway than Gentile elites do who are behind the Jewish supremacist agenda.

            Freemasonry and similar occult organizations formed by the Jewish dominated globalist clique have their roots in the Jewish Kabbalah, from “sex magic” to gnosticism, necromancy (supposedly speaking to dead spirits which Jews do by touching the grave stones of their own deceased), and other ancient rituals and practices that are seen as Satanic by Christians and Muslims alike. However they even happen to conflate European paganism with the Satanic occult which is really a combination of various different pagan beliefs that originate from the Middle East and elsewhere.

            “..find the notion of the “chosen people” rather arrogant myself..”

      Al, you just hit the nail on the head. They have been looking for a plausible way to instigate this. The Trump gambit is working quite well as I see it. You bring in a ‘firebrand’ to stir up $hit, create chaos in the public mind hoping for polarization to exploit, create a situation that calls for impeachment, or have another assassination (complete with Mexican illegal or Islamic shooter) to further create turmoil, declare martial law, cause more turmoil with FFs and voila! you have a color revolution.

  • TiredOfBsToo

    Lack of freedom of speech is just one of the caveats of current US Democracy (plutocracy). One can see by things such as censorship, civil forfeiture, lack of habeas corpus etc. etc. that democracy in the US no longer represents the tenets of the paper upon which the freedoms were written. Democracy in the US (and spreading to the vassal states) now has the definition of ‘at the pleasure of the aristocracy / plutocracy’!

    • SG

      And Russia ironically also has restrictions against free speech, including a higher consolidation over their own corporate media and a higher degree of government owned media as well. Aside from holocaust denial (since holocaustianity is the state religion of all White Western nations) and mentioning certain war crimes (aka “lies” and denounciation of Soviets during the Great Patriotic War) committed by Soviet troops during WW2 also becoming illegal in 2014, I’m pretty sure national separatism is also banned. Furthermore, autonomous regions and Krais have about as much autonomy as any other Oblast.

      The only documentation that currently exists regarding ordered genocide from German archives was the order to execute Soviet commissars (Jews & Gentiles) during their war against the Soviet Union.

    Color me a cynic, but I don’t believe any of this BS. Jones is another Trojan Horse, set up to accomplish another objective…public censorship acceptance. They use him as a loose cannon, with alleged ‘loose facts’, to set more precedent for ‘fake news’. Jones is just the next tool to use in their arsenal. If he were actually on the up and up, they would have blocked him long before this for statements about and against Israel…but he’s never said anything critical of Israel, has he? Does anyone really believe Israel has no influence or connection to the events of today?? For me, this is as much a FF as any CW attack.
