Conspiracy maven Alex Jones of Infowars sent an urgent message to President Donald Trump on Monday to “wake the f**k up” regarding tech censorship, believing it is the President’s “Achilles heel” that may stop him from gaining re-election in 2020.
“In just the last three days, Mr. President,” Jones said in an urgent address to Trump, “we have seen over two-hundred-million followers to scores of popular Instagram and Facebook accounts deleted and the accounts removed.”
“Some of these accounts had 43 million followers a piece. Others had over 30 million. If you combined just the top two accounts that got deleted for no reason other than they were politically popular and shared your information, that’s more followers than you have on Twitter,” Jones added.
Jones explained that the elites are obsessed with shutting down memes, which are the lifeblood of the populist uprising against globalism and far more powerful than all of the fake news propaganda.
“The fact that you’ve let them do this to thousands of other prominent conservatives and nationalists and haven’t taken action yet other than criticizing it has green-lit the purges to now be exponential,” Jones said to Trump.
Jones highlighted victims of Big Brother such as spicy.mp4 and yerdank who have had their Instagram meme accounts deleted as apart of the latest Orwellian purge. Jones explained that this is the real election meddling scandal, not anything having to do with Russians.
“Dammit, I care about you, and my fate is tied to you, and I’m pissed, buddy! If you keep sitting there and taking this crap, I’m not going to put up with it anymore,” Jones said in a desperate plea to the President.
“Because it doesn’t matter how good your agenda is and how many other great things you do, if you sit there and let these out-of-control criminals walk in here and steal our First Amendment and steal this damn election, then I don’t know what I’m going to be forced to do,” he added.
Jones issued this DEFCON 5 alert as a way to inspire his listeners to light a fire under Trump and his administration officials so they immediately tackle the menace that is Big Tech.
“Trump’s the target. The American people are the target. We’re all the target, and we’ve got to stand together because if we don’t have free speech and the First Amendment, what do we have?” Jones asked.
“Big Tech is the modern telecommunications system like the telephone, and we all have a right to it!” Jones said to finish his emergency broadcast.

Right now, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has active legislation in the Senate that would deny special privileges to tech monopoly firms if they show political bias in their content curation.
Facebook Will Create “Oversight Board” For Users to Appeal Censorship Decisions
A smidgen of accountability.
Facebook is planning on rolling out an “oversight board” to which users of the platform can appeal the censorship of content.
“Over the next few weeks, our nearly 3 billion users will have access to an independent review of difficult content decisions,” announced the company in a Thursday blog post.
Oversight Board to Start Hearing Cases https://t.co/AAaa2nPmsF
— Facebook Newsroom (@fbnewsroom) October 22, 2020
Facebook is describing the oversight board as a “global body of experts separate from Facebook that will make independent and binding decisions on the cases they choose to hear.” Facebook users will presumably have the option to appeal incidences of censorship to Facebook’s oversight board when they have exhausted use of Facebook’s existing censorship appeal process. However, the existing process is only available on a seemingly arbitrary basis, and it’s probably not unlikely that those who already aren’t in Facebook’s good graces won’t be allowed the opportunity to appeal to the oversight board.
The overseers are employed and selected by Facebook itself, casting serious doubt as to whether they’re genuinely impartial arbiters of social media censorship.
It’s hard to tell if this is a step in the right direction or merely a ruse for the monopoly to counter accusations that its arbitrary censorship process is undemocratic and authoritarian. In predictable fashion, the powerful Oversight Board is staffed almost exclusively with Soros-linked neoliberal progressives, some of whom have already advocated for a European understanding of “free speech” as opposed to an American one.
With great power comes great responsibility, and Facebook seems content to accept the former without the latter. It simply isn’t their place to declare what is permissible political speech.
