    He is on over 300 radio stations across America. He has planned for this and has contingency plans against the establishment censoring him and his amazing journalists.

    Its a double standard the left can call for violence toward the President or call to blow up the White house to an open crowd theres so many examples. But Alex Jones is the target of the left because he is effective. It was bad for a call to arms but isn't it also bad to say "When was the last time an actor murdered a President?" -Johnny Depp. What a pathetic joke.

    I love how an anti-war conspiracy theorist is labeled as hate speech for having an opinion, but reporters and journalists who have literally gotten us into wars that killed millions based on blatant lies are perfectly legitimate and allowed to have social media accounts. This is pure subjective and politically biased censorship.

    I signed-up for the InfoWars newsletter to support Free Speech, otherwise knowing that Alex Jones was panned as vitamin-selling conspiracy theorist.
    Infowars headline today: "PRESIDENT TRUMP PAYS TRIBUTE TO ARETHA FRANKLIN: VOICE WAS ‘GIFT FROM GOD’"

    MSM headline today: "'Donald Trump Remembers Aretha Franklin as Someone Who "Worked for Him'" "Trump Can't Even Honor Aretha Franklin Properly" "The president described the deceased soul legend first as a person who “worked for me,” a telling remark in his ongoing disparagement of black women."

    Hhmmm… I think I'll read start checking out more InfoWars articles …

    Those sites are local town halls for millions of people whom have been brainwashed to think this way and will go along with anything. War is the only way. This is only one of the battles..

    It's odd how people still think Twitter is "social media".. No it's for the system by the system.. for monitoring, data siphoning and social control. You've only got to note it's packed with "officialdom" accounts to know this…I mean, the CIA, they're really sociable aren't they.. oh and the FBI, laugh a minute sociable…and then there's the military etc etc.
    No it's not "social media" it's Just another tentacle of the controlling beast that of course includes Google/Youtube and Facebook. They masquerade as companies. It's not about protecting anyone it's about suppression and control ..and keeping the upper hand. Hence not a fair and level playing field.

    Blatant silencing should be a warning to be taken seriously by all.. No matter how repellant someone's views are on certain issues etc…, none of it will ever be as repellant as the powers of stealth darkness ruling this planet from the shadows.. right now.
    I sense it's time to free humanity from those stealthy depopulating controlling shackles..as clearly the overt and covert silencing has begun… I note they're absolutely fine with having violent beating up people and porn on twitter( and youtube).. Apparently that's not a problem for them.. But. free speech, nope they're not having that when it has any chance of having a wide effect… The New World Order hey, what are they like.. Insane mostly I sense.
    Happy days..

    Your studio needs better lighting; fluorescent + yellow mixed… a better camera maybe, but I think it's the lighting. Also ban Mark Dice, another Alex Jones. 🌚

    BORING you people are so stupid …Alex just keeps getting more and more popular…All You who support censorship are disgusting, and I am so very sad to see ignorant people who will not even honor our American principles. I enjoy what Alex Jones has to say and I am pissed that YouTube and others conspired to silence him…It all just goes to prove what Alex has been saying all along…

    We're all adults for crying out. Most people are intelligent enough to use critical thinking to decide whether they agree with what they're seeing or not. The fact that so many people are celebrating Youtube, Facebook and Twitter for shielding our eyes is a travesty. But of course it's mainly these mainstream publications who are dancing in the streets over this… Just the first step in shutting down and undermining the alternative media.

    Oh no! Alex posted a video urging viewers to fight internet censorship, how ever will we deal! Twitter must shield our eyes from such acts of controversy!

    The purge against Jones is a joke. It's just the first step in the dinosaur media icing out the growing influence of the independent news sources.

    It's called SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT folks…………the 1st Amendment is definitely under attack, it seems to me that MSM and Social Media is running the country via "Social Acceptance" which is dangerous and pushes us towards a Civil War/Civil Unrest when the shtf and it's coming.

    CNET is either downplaying the severity of this censorship, or they've got their heads jammed up their asses. The forefathers figured this out for us hundreds of years ago, so quit wasting your breath. Downvote
