Instagram, Facebook Ban Alex Jones, Inform Leftist Media Instead of Writing Press Release

More censorship from the Big Tech platform.

Facebook Instagram Ban Alex Jones

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.

Additionally, The Verge reported that “Facebook and Instagram users will continue to be able to create posts praising them and their viewpoints,” indicating users are still able to freely share their information, while The Atlantic reported that “Any account that shares Infowars content will see the content removed; if an account violates terms on multiple occasions it will be banned.”

Both websites, and CNN, reported that the decision to ban Jones was made because he is considered “dangerous” without additional context.

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.

Earlier this year, a petition on a website ironically titled Free Press urged Facebook to ban Jones’ personal Facebook profile with a petition. It is unknown if this petition held sway over Facebook’s decision.

“I’m not a victim, I’m a target,” Jones said on the Thursday broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio and TV show. “The Alex Jones Show” is still available on the Infowars website.

Jones said that their decision to ban him on nebulous charges, which some reports have indicated claim he is anti-Semitic, represents defamation of his character.

“The ban is where they get into defamation,” said Jones.

Big League Politics contacted Facebook for comment on its decision, and did not receive a response in time for publication.

Twitter Targets Alternative Video Platform Bitchute as Big Tech’s Censorship Crackdown Intensifies

Big Tech wants to cripple the free flow of information.

The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship.

Independent journalist Tim Pool made the discovery in a Twitter post:

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.

In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.

“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”

Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.

The Bitchute links to banned videos from the courageous medical whistleblowers have been posted many different times onto Twitter:

Twitter will not allow users to access these videos without providing the following warning:

As Twitter targets Bitchute for allowing freedom of speech on their monopoly platform, they are actively allowing pedophiles to discuss their lustful desires for children.

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter explicitly amended their terms of service so pedophiles are allowed on the platform to talk about how they want to rape kids, with child nudity being permissible in certain instances:

Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.

Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.

“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.

Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.

Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform.

“Many of us have worked with a group of such non-offending pedophiles, also known as anti-contact MAPs (Minor-Attracted Persons), in a peer support network called Virtuous Pedophiles (@virpeds), as well as in other support networks,” they wrote in their letter.

“Recently, a prominent member of Virtuous Pedophiles, who goes by the pseudonym Ender Wiggin (@enderphile2), had his account permanently suspended by Twitter. At least one other member of the same network, Šimon Falko (@simgiran), also had his account permanently suspended around the same time, and a number of other accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs have since been permanently or temporarily suspended,” they added.

They argued that denying pedophiles a place on the social media platform may lead to these so-called virtuous pedophiles acting on their impulses to sexually victimize kids.

The values of these tech giants do not align with American values. If these hostile actors refuse to abide by American values, they ought to lose their Section 230 privileges under the Communications Decency Act.
