The damn lizard people who rule the country finally got their way!
Alex Jones, Infowars Ban on Youtube, FB and other platforms
Alex Jones is basically a variation of the National Enquirer (for those who know that rag) for the digital age. He peddles his outlandish exaggerations, lies, and conspiracies to his idiot audience.
Now, this is basically entertainment, nobody should really take him seriously. The issue is that there are droves of ignorant idiots, and morons who make up a percentage of the US population. They watch the drivel that Alex Jones puts out, and actually believe it.
So when Alex Jones commented on the Sandy Hook massacre being a hoax, members of his mentally-deficient audience, actually travelled to harass the parents of the murdered kids.
These are not that different from the Trumpian idiots you see at Trump rallies holdings Q signs. The United States is weird in that sense -- it has some of the brightest people in the world which are counter balanced by an equal army of nearly retarded folks.
@Wasanelder: Is that Pelosi? It looks like Pelosi...
Interesting perspective: Tom Woods and Michael Malice. I see this happening with bitchute.com now.
Another interesting video (only 9 min) from YouTuber Law:
It seems like as long as section 230 of Communication and Decency Act is Law, it will near impossible to fight back legally. But this might be OK - see first vid.
Aannnnd it’s getting worse.
Robert Spencer (not to be confused with the leftist racist Richard Spencer) had his patreon account closed because of demands from MasterCard!

Given the shared background of most people here, some of us are more inclined to compare him to Rick Fearon.
MeanMrMustard - "There is no such thing as hate speech."
Sure there is.
I hate speech.
Telepathy is way better.
...when I was a young guy, I actually used to read InfoWars fairly regularly.
I actually found it sort of credible, because I imagined what I was reading being delivered in a calm, mature, and reasonable tone of voice, like the guys on 60 Minutes.
(Looking back, I think being a dutiful JW also made me much more susceptible to conspiracy theories, particularly as a way of shoring up my "belief".)
Then I actually watched maybe the first five minutes of an Alex Jones video, and realized...
...holy shit, this guy's a loon.
