Google Bans InfoWars App From Play Store, Censoring Unauthorized Coronavirus Information

Big Tech is using coronavirus as an excuse to ramp up draconian censorship.

Published

Google has removed the Infowars App from its Play Store, using coronavirus as an excuse to censor the leading independent news provider.

“Now more than ever, combating misinformation on the Play Store is a top priority for the team,” a Google spokesperson said to WIRED. “When we find apps that violate Play policy by distributing misleading or harmful information, we remove them from the store.”

Jones is under fire for disputing the approved narratives regarding coronavirus, urging people not necessarily to panic at the behest of the globalist media.

In one of the comments that have gotten him in hot water, Jones reportedly said that “everybody dies under the new world order except maybe one tenth of one percent that believe they’re going to merge with machines and have made deals with this inter-dimensional thing that gave them all the technology … You can’t make a deal with these aliens, OK, that the Bible tells you about and ever get off the planet.”

It is not only Big Tech that is using the coronavirus in an attempt to destroy Jones’ ability to freely communicate. The state of New York has also taken aim at Jones’ business for selling products that he claimed improves bodily immunity to toxins.

The affirmative-action New York attorney general Letitia James used her bully pulpit earlier this month to target Jones and demand for him to stop selling the supplements that sustain his news operation:

Jones has urged people to buy the products in his web store as a “stopgate” against the coronavirus and SARS. New York attorney general Letitia James says that this is unacceptable and has demanded for him to stop selling these helpful products.

“As the coronavirus continues to pose serious risks to public health, Alex Jones has spewed outright lies and has profited off of New Yorkers’ anxieties,” James said, claiming that Jones’ advertising is “incredibly dangerous.”

Jonathan Emord, a lawyer from “The Alex Jones Show,” claims that James’ allegations are false and that the products were never marketed “to be used in the treatment of any disease, including the novel coronavirus.” They will be adding a disclaimer on their page to make sure that is known.

The government is also cracking down on remedies not approved by the FDA, such as colloidal silver, as a way to protect the Big Pharma monopoly on health and wellness, using coronavirus as the excuse to flex their muscle.

Joseph Simons, who works as chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, has said that “what we don’t need in this situation are companies preying on consumers by promoting products with fraudulent prevention and treatment claims.”

Colloidal Vitality LLC has been targeted by the federal government for claiming that “it’s actually widely acknowledged in both science and the medical industry that ionic silver kills coronaviruses.” Televangelist Jim Bakker has also been targeted for selling colloidal silver as a possible coronavirus remedy.

“Mr. Jones’ public platform has not only given him a microphone to shout inflammatory rhetoric, but his latest mistruths are incredibly dangerous and pose a serious threat to the public health of New Yorkers and individuals across the nation,” James said, making it clear that she has a partisan vendetta against against Jones.

Jones clarified his advertisement campaign while addressing the controversy on his radio show, dispelling the far-left lies used against him in an attempt to destroy his reputation and his business.

The authoritarian measures taken by public and private actors may end up causing more damage to society than coronavirus by the time this nightmare is said and done.

YOUR NEW MASTER: Twitter’s Head of Conversational Safety, a “Young, Queer Asian-American Businesswoman,” is “Rethinking” the Concept of User Safety

Do you trust someone like her to make Twitter “a safer place”?

Published

on

The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.

Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.

“As a queer woman of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.

Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”

This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.

Examples from the article:

  • Creating an audio hangout feature called “Spaces,” which will allow users to determine who is allowed to participate, as well as who can speak and when. (Note that it’s being tested on “women and marginalized groups of people” first.)
  • Potentially doubling down on functions that “encourage people to read content before reposting it.” (Which is exclusively done to censor or limit the reach of conservative and other right-wing content.)
  • Building tools that “create private pathways for apologies, forgiveness and deescalation.” (The finer details are still a work in progress according to Su.)
  • Defining what a “meaningful conversation” is. (Would people like Su think that anything right-wingers say or believe belongs in a “meaningful conversation”? Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet money on it…)

You know full well that a company like Facebook would shortly follow suit. After all, it’s not just Twitter that Su is “revolutionizing,” but the concept of social media itself. Figure out where all this is heading.
