In the latest episode of conservative censorship by the political left, Apple has banned InfoWars and Alex Jones from its platform for so-called “hate speech.” .
An Apple spokeswoman confirmed the decision with a statement that says the company ‘does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users,'” said the Hollywood Reporter. “The statement continued by noting that podcasts that violate those guidelines are removed from the directory, which means they will no longer be searchable or available to download or stream. ‘We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions,’ the statement concludes. ”
Legally speaking, “hate speech” does not exist. It is a euphemism for free speech (protected by the First Amendment) that leftists do not like.
“The tech giant has removed five InfoWars podcasts from its iTunes online marketplace,” “The podcasts, which include the Jones hosted War Room, are no longer available via iTunes or Apple’s podcasting app. Only one InfoWars podcast is still available and that is Real News With David Knight, a three-hour radio show that broadcasts on weekday mornings.”
Predictably, the fascist political left is happy with Apple’s decision.
“Thank you, Apple. Not a fan of censorship, but when Alex Jones threatened to shoot Mueller this stopped being about free speech,” tweeted Adam Best founder of political site The Left, in direct opposition to Apple’s statement. “Threats of violence are not First Amendment issues and neither is defamation with provable negligence (like his Sandy Hook conspiracy theory).”

Jones’ “threat” against Mueller was a hypothetical challenge to a duel.
“That’s a demon I will take down, or die trying,” Jones said.
Leftist organization Sleeping Giants accused Jones of harassment for reporting on the Sandy Hook massacre and the Las Vegas Massacre, which apparently is only sanctioned by incurious mainstream cable news outlets.
“Last week, we asked
@Apple how the harassment of Sandy Hook parents and Vegas shooting victims didn’t violate their Terms of Service,” the group wrote. “Tonight, they decided that it did. Massive kudos to @Apple for doing what most tech companies have so far refused to do.”

Like or dislike Jones, censorship of a news network ought to be a repugnant thought to anyone who believes in the First Amendment. Leftists, of course, do not believe in the First Amendment – or in any American values – thus the celebration.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
