(National Sentinel)Â Leftist Hypocrites:Â The best example yet thatÂ InfowarsÂ founder Alex Jones was becoming too worrisome for the Leftist Deep State and its sycophantic media and tech allies is evidenced by the ferocity with which they are going after him and his business.
Leftists always reveal who theyâ€™re most frightened by: Itâ€™s the conservatives and libertarians they fear most.
That explains why establishment media led byÂ CNNÂ and the social media giants led by Facebook are working frantically to deep-six Jonesâ€™ media empire â€“ through bans, censorship, and de-platforming.
And they appear not to care how hypocritical they look in the process.
On MondayÂ in what appeared to be a well-coordinated effort, Facebook â€“ along with YouTube, Spotify, and Apple â€“ removed Jonesâ€™ audio and video files and pages, claiming thatÂ hisÂ speech is simply â€œtoo hatefulâ€ for the public forum. So far, Twitter appears to be the lone social media holdout, but itâ€™s anyoneâ€™s guess how long Jack Dorsey, Twitter founder and CEO, will take the abuse that is surely coming his way (from his own platform no doubt).
And yet, for all the â€œhateâ€ Jones is allegedly spreading, how much more hateful can you get than to espouse and embrace terrorism?
The Gateway PunditÂ noted this weekÂ after Jones was deplatformed by Facebook that Mark Zuckerbergâ€™s social media site plays host to all sorts of hate â€“ terrorist hate.
For instance, though Jones is too offensive for Face, theÂ Communist FARC terroristsÂ hailing from Colombia are just fine to them. FARC â€“ the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia â€“ began as a guerrilla movement in the mid-1960s and grew into an anti-government armed force responsible for nearly five decades of murder and torture. In 2002 the U.S. government considered the group â€œdrug-trafficking â€˜terrorists,â€™â€Â Reuters reported.
And while Jones is too outrageous for Facebook, apparently Zuckerbergâ€™s censorsÂ are just ducky with Palestinian FatahÂ having a page with 120,000 â€œlikes.â€ Like other Palestinian organizations, this one advocates for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people, while often promoting female terrorists and suicide bombers,Â The Gateway PunditÂ noted. The group considers nothing off-limits if it drives â€œoccupyingâ€ Israel off of territory that has never belonged to them.
Moving closer to home, Facebook also allows Antifa organizations to keep their pages,Â such as this one, which openly advocates violence not against real â€œfascistsâ€ (because that would theÂ AntifaÂ thugs), but against Americans who are conservatives and who happen to support POTUS Donald Trump. These groups claim to be against â€œhateâ€ but are the biggest haters currently in the political arena.Â TheyÂ are the ones who advocate fascist, Nazi-like practices like using violence to shut down free speech. They are domestic terrorists.
But donâ€™t take word for it, take it from the Obama-era FBI and Department of Homeland Security: FBI andÂ DHS began likening the actions of Antifa thugs at Trump campaign eventsÂ to â€œdomestic terrorism.â€
And apparently, all of this is okay with Facebook and the other social media platforms. But Alex Jones offering different viewpoints and analysis of current events â€“ outside the box stuff that few others are thinking about or considering â€“ thatâ€™s â€œhateâ€ speech and it must go.
The speech Nazis who are supportive of Facebook, Apple and Google need to realize that the founders did not adopt the First Amendmentâ€™s speech protections just to foster and promote groupthink. They understood that part of being truly free meant that Americans must have the unlimited right to offer any point of view, even to the point of being offensive. The First Amendment protectsÂ speech, it doesnâ€™t protect feelings.
Alex Jones hasnâ€™t changed his approach or his style much in all the years heâ€™s been doing radio and TV. What changed was his effectiveness and reach, both of which were growing.
The Deep State Left feared that, so it was time to shut him down.
Whoever is cheering this, be forewarned: If they can do it to Jones, they can do it to you, too â€“ and likely will someday.
And neither Jones nor anyone else who dared speak out will be around to defend you.
