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.
‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe
The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.
The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.
Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.
There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.
This is the moment

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.
Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.
MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
