Facebook Instagram Ban Alex Jones

Infowars host Alex Jones was charged with driving while intoxicated in Travis County, Tex. on Monday night, but he reported on his website that the charges were later dropped.

The Austin American-Sportsman reported that Jones was booked at 12:37 a.m after being pulled over and charged with DWI, a class B misdemeanor. Jones’ bail was set at $3,000 and he posted it at 4:11 am and then was set free. This information came from sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kristen Dark.

Infowars claims that Jones was pulled over for going 45 MPH in a 40 MPH zone. He allegedly drank a “small amount of sake at a Japanese restaurant hours before with his wife,” and the breathalyzer only “showed a tiny amount of alcohol” in his system.

Jones blames the quota system in Tarrant County, which he alleges has been trying to up their DWI totals in order to increase revenue.

“It was quite the experience to see what was going on in this country and to experience it myself,” Jones said during his radio show on Tuesday.

Jones also claimed on his show that the officer who arrested him couldn’t even perform a field sobriety test, which consists of standing on one foot while holding your other foot an inch off the ground while peering at the lifted foot.

“Knowing how the establishment, globalist press operates, Jones wanted to get out in front of this to show he has nothing to hide and to point out that legal experts are confident the case will be quickly dropped because he didn’t violate the law,” Infowars wrote.

Big League Politics has reported on Jones’ deplatforming and banishment from major social media platforms in recent years:

Infowars radio and TV host Alex Jones had his professional Instagram page banned, and was banned from Facebook on his personal profile today in the latest wave of Big Tech censorship.

Rather than informing the media universally through a press release, as Facebook has done repeatedly when making previous decisions, the social media behemoth apparently informed select left-wing media outlets of its decision to ban Jones on both Facebook and Instagram.

As a result, the reports are conflicting, and seemingly inaccurate.

Both The Atlantic and The Verge report that Infowars editor-at-large and YouTube content creator Paul Joseph Watson was also banned from Instagram and Facebook roughly an hour before he was banned from the platforms…

Because Facebook chose to release information exclusively to far-left media outlets, average Facebook and Instagram users have no idea whether they will be permitted to share Infowars’ content, which includes articles, videos from four different news programs, and special reports from a wide array of different personalities.

While Jones was purged from most digital platforms in a seemingly-coordinated effort in August of last year, his personal Facebook account and Instagram profile were allowed to remain active. Facebook has not indicated why, 8 months after this initial ban, they chose to ban him now.

Immigration

Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.

Published

If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
