Alex Jones Smashes Roku After Ban

Alex Jones vented his frustration with a sledge hammer after Roku banned a fan-made Roku channel from the platform, bending to the liberal outrage generated by leftist media.

Radio and TV personality Alex Jones was banned from the Roku streaming platform this week amid a renewed push to unperson Jones and remove him from the Internet. While interviewing the creator of the fan-made Roku channel and Big League Politics writer Tom Pappert, Jones took the opportunity to smash a Roku device in protest.

Jones had his 7-year-old Roku channel and a new, day old fan-made Roku channel banned from the platform after a concerted effort from leftist mainstream media outlets to frame Jones as a conspiracy theorist who makes money from the Sandy Hook shooting.

Big League Politics reported this week:

Roku is the latest Big Tech company to censor radio host and TV personality Alex Jones’ Infowars, as the company deleted a fan-made Infowars Live channel less than 24 hours after it went public on the platform.

In a now-deleted tweet, Roku first promised to protect the First Amendment rights of all Americans and allow the content to remain on the platform. It was later followed up with a second tweet explaining their decision to delete the app.

Jones and Infowars have previously been banned from Apple, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, LinkedIn, YouPorn, several payment processors, and a hosting provider. This week, there has also been a renewed push for Jones’ remaining Facebook properties, including one owned by Paul Joseph Watson and a fan-made Facebook page rebroadcasting The Alex Jones Show, to be banned from the Big Tech platform.

Jones’ full interview discussing the banned Roku channel with Pappert and the channel’s creator is still available on Facebook at press time.

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”?

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 women 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.
