For years, InfoWars, Prison Planet, and all things Alex Jones, has been under attack, according to Mr. Jones, but last week, he was completely censored. However, My Statesman has reported the ban is having little to no impact.
InfoWars and the Jones media empire “continues to see more than 1 million page visits per day and has trended upward this month,” according to data accumulated from Amazon Alexa and their reports. The popular host also sees about “25 million page views” each month. Not too shabby for a man who many feel was wrongfully tossed from YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms. This is nothing short of unbelievable to many pundits.
Apple and Google, two companies that silenced Alex Jones, still have his app on their platforms and people are more than happy to simply listen to his network that way. The truth is, Jones was quite wise by preparing in the past and by telling his followers that the Deep State and others wanted him hushed. He told his vast audience how to keep tuning in if it happened, and they have listened, it would seem.
Apple told the Washington Post, “We put great effort into curating the App Store to provide the very best experience for everyone. We strongly support all points of view being represented on the App Store, as long as the apps are respectful to users with differing opinions, and follow our clear guidelines, ensuring the App Store is a safe marketplace for all.”
The truth is, the app is not even needed. If the puppet masters try and pull the app, anyone with a modern phone can simply go to the browser, click on his pages, tap to any Alex Jones show, and listen. There is not even a need for the YouTube (or other) app since most phones can run the Infowars site just fine without it.
“Alex Jones has been doing this for a long time,” stated former MTV host Adam Curry. “When he started off, there was no YouTube, etc. We have the belief that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are the internet, but it’s not. You can’t stop people from posting, and he has a very loyal following.”
He supposedly captured global elites attending an occult ritual in the woods at Bohemian Grove. For years, rumors about the practices existed.
Alex Jones reportedly called students and family members at Sandy Hook “crisis actors,” but Jones has gone on air many times to address his statements and has denied the allegations.
It may be that people like Ben Bentzin, a marketing lecturer at the University of Texas are far more worrisome than InfoWars. Bentzin, said, “There’s not a firm, bright line between categories of speech which some people will find offensive and others will find acceptable” on social media. “The antidote to bad speech should start with speech to point out how awful it is.”
However, the division about what is acceptable and what is not shouldn’t be decided at all. That’s what the First Amendment is about. Censoring any speech leads to tyrannical slavery, and the founders knew that.
As Jones likes to say, perhaps there really is a war on for our minds, after all.
