Are the elites in charge of the internet now so terrified of Alex Jones and Infowars that they removed all access and past shows?
Many groups like ANTIFA, BLM, communists, and more violently worse; are still on the internet everywhere. But yesterday Alex Jones and his “Infowars” was taken down by: Apple, Facebook, Google's YouTube, LinkedIn, Spotify, MailChimp, and more. And all his past shows were deleted. What does Alex Jones know that they are ALL now so afraid of Infowars?

I'm not a fan of either InfoWars or Alex Jones at all (his protégé Paul Joseph Watson is more tolerable), but this was clearly a politically motivated and coordinated take down of them by Big Tech and there is evidence that politicians in California were involved.
It reinforces my view that internet deplatforming is a major issue and one that needs to be dealt with, by legislative means if necessary. Deplatforming has been an issue for a while now, starting with the Alt-Right who were targeted for deplatforming after Trump was elected, and much more viciously, AltRight.com lost their original domain, a domain which tolerated Islamic extremism, and companies like PayPal and Patreon pulled their services, seriously hindering their funding abilities.
Before some retard screeches about "they're private companies, they can do what they want!" and "muh free market", it's not as simple as that. In the 21st century the internet is the new public square, it is where all major political and cultural movements now take place, not on the streets and Google/YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and so on are monopolies. They have no competition. They each have millions upon millions of users and the 'product' in social media is not actually the platform, but the people on it, people are how they make money. Donald Trump is not allowed to block people on twitter as it would be a violation of their US constitution First Amendment rights, so why is twitter allowed (and clearly being pressured) to ban people for their political views? Not to mention these companies are covered by so many laws anyway.
The fact that the nutty left, including Antifa, a movement which openly calls for violence against opponents and incites the doxxing of government employees involved in immigration enforcement, is tolerated by all these companies tells us what is really going on.

It's all fake, Alex Jones is just a crisis actor.
