Golly Batman, it sure took a LONG time for the "nabobs" of YouTube and Facebook to toss InfoWars. They only acted when the shrieking about his conspiracy theories and occasional "Jewish banker" nonsense (most of said shrieking being on Twitter, oddly enough) became too loud to ignore. He's been doing this identical shtick online since the 1990s, and NOW they notice him? NOW he's suddenly an "anti-Semite"? But hey, Jack Dorsey thinks Alex is A-OK for Twitter, because REASONS. It's obvious to me Twitter puts up with him for the same reason they let Trump post incoherent rants. It brings traffic and money. ALL HAIL THE DOLLAR. Free speech as long as DOLLAR.
Funny how little I see in this "coverage" about a REAL reason to shut Jones up: his petty attacks on victims of school shootings. We need a comedian
to point that out.
Oh btw, from 2016:http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/ ... emite.html
The first answer is that Jones’ Jewish mafia talk is not new at all. In fact, he has made similar comments in the past at moments when he’s tried to criticize explicit anti-Semites for personally attacking him for the ethnic Jewishness of some of his family members.....Whether intentionally or not, he’s clearly using anti-Semitic dog whistles—and has been for a long time—to criticize Israel affiliated groups and institutions. But these are groups that Jews themselves sometimes criticize, and he hasn’t historically framed the argument as Jews being at the top of some global conspiracy theory.
Funny how these things can fester for 20 years and suddenly, some manic culture warrior (left or right doesn't really matter) flips a switch, and so-and-so MUST BE SILENCED IMMEDIATELY. But money still talks. What a paranoid, hypocritical and juvenile culture we live in.
This is the oldest prisonplanet.com capture I could find, from 2002:https://web.archive.org/web/20021123133 ... et.com:80/
And this is the oldest infowars.com capture, from 1999:https://web.archive.org/web/19990508121 ... rs.com:80/
He's a vaudeville entertainer, okay? Not a very good one, but hey, everyone has to dance for their chosen audience (of mostly idiots). And I will be willing to bet $100 right now that InfoWars will mysteriously find itself with a new YouTube account 2-3 years from now. After the outrage machine forgets all about Alex Jones and moves on to a new target.
