1st they came for Alex Jones

The First Amendment means something to me. It means nothing to the corporate media conglomerates supporting the agenda of the Deep State. They will use and are using their monopoly control over media outlets to silence the opposition. Alex Jones is the latest victim. They silenced HollyO.

President Trump was in error when he stated recently that “the media is [are] the enemy of the people.” Not quite so. They are the enemy of the truth, and their handling of the Sarah Jeong fiasco proves it. In the spirit of the day, the story will probably disappear from the American hive-mind after this week, because that’s how we roll now in a country where the Grand Inquisitors are not held responsible for their turpitudes.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/08/no_author/activist-wikipedia-editors...

New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong’s Wikipedia page includes no mention of her racist tweets that resurfaced after her new position with the newspaper was announced, apparently because activist editors for the free online encyclopedia won’t allow any mention of her tweets.

There has been a lot of debate amongst Wikipedia writers and editors about whether or not mention of her racist tweets should be included on her page.

How dare they! The First Amendment clearly states that Facebook shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech!

It's unfortunate that the US

It's unfortunate that the US no longer enforces anti-trust laws, in fact America does completely the opposite constantly allowing monopolies to grow larger.

They don't hesitate to mention it for anyone who isn't one of the "anointed". There is no argument about the authenticity of those records, so why should the controversy be excluded?

Big tech’s coordinated purge of InfoWars — which was hit by bans from Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube in rapid succession — did not occur in a vacuum. On this issue, Silicon Valley bowed to CNN journalists and Democrat politicians who ceaselessly lobbied for the site to be censored.

It’s a sign of how the concentration of power in America has shifted from big government to big tech that politicians are now lobbying tech companies rather than the other way round, but that’s exactly what happened over the course of the past few months, as Democrats applied relentless pressure on Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants to censor InfoWars.

Professor Glenn Reynolds :' Media companies, which compete with Jones for eyeballs, colluded to get other media companies to shut him down. Were I Jones, I’d file an antitrust suit.'

The Obama Deception Video by Jones has had 15 million views, an example of why the colluding corporate media wants to shut Jones down.

It appears Twitter hasn't banned AJ stating he hadn't broke any of their rules.
Which might or might not say something about their rules.

Also via Apple one can connect to his site .

First Amendment Revised. Your

First Amendment Revised. Your speech must be true, if a factual statement, and of "constitutional value" to be protected. So say the thought police, er, "constitutional scholars".

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/free-speech-scholars-to-alex-jones-you...

“False speech does not serve the public interest the way that true speech does,” the scholars wrote. “And indeed, there is no constitutional value in false statements of fact.”

Is there "constitutional"

Is there "constitutional" value in the owner/s of a private enterprise choosing to not enable the false
narrative via their enterprise ?

IMO there probably are better martyrs available for the cause.

I don't imagine AJ is going to take any of this lying down.

Who remembers when The Mall was a thing? You know, when people used to go there.

A long time ago, some group of someones got upset about something and decided to protest at the mall. Mall security tossed them out and the tossed sued on a free speech infringement. The tossed won after the judge concluded the privately owned mall or at least it's common areas, were a modern, de facto 'Public Square'.

With a nod to Twitter and Alex Jones, consider the following:

Democrats Blame Russians For Ohio Loss, Turn On The Green Party!


SOURCE

Leftists are having a total meltdown after losing once again in Ohio’s special election on Tuesday!

They’re blaming Russia for their loss and saying the Green Party are agents of the Russkies!

Here’s some of the highlights from Twitter:
________________________________________________________________________________

Will Scott Fish live in infamy? How can any of the platforms that banned Jones be construed as anything less than a modern, de facto 'Public Square'?

By the way, read the Tweets . . the Ds turning on the Gs is priceless.

So 3 or 4 information

So 3 or 4 information companies decide to conspire to deny access from their clients to a news source and this is not a collusion in an attempt to destroy the competition. To reduce the competition to help create a monopoly for themselves by collusion?

Bruce and his fn narrative, what do you not understand about the narrative that said Saddam had wmd, Bruce, what do you not understand about the Russians invading Crimera? all of these lies were perpetuated by the same or similar corporate media whores of the MIC, CIA and apparently the FBI.

The same whores that want to shut down Alex Jones and also Ron Paul etc and anyone else that doesn't swallow hook line and sinker the lies coming out of DC deep state and the corporate whore media.

the only and real record that

the only and real record that is broken Bruce is the lies that constantly come out of DC for their never ending wars. The Lusitania for WW1, Pearl Harbor for WW2, the Gulf of Tonkin for Vietnam, The Liberty incident for six day war, The babies being thrown out of their incubators for Desert Storm, WMD and Colin Powell lies about Saddam for the Iraq War.

You and millions of Americans swallow this bullshit non stop to create a 1000 billion dollar war machine that kills thousands and millions for the war profiteers, meanwhile our infrastructure at home rots while we build bases and spend money over seas. The American (British ) Empire record is what is broken Bruce and AJ while being far from perfect has pointed it out many times, while the New York Times and Washington Post constantly beats the war drums.

I understand your bias though after all you were part of the security complex, you retired from it, you were taught to trust it and not question it

Two more casualties of the Twitter purge of antiwar voices: @ScottHortonShow, the new editorial director of http://Antiwar.com , and @DanielLMcAdams, director of the Ron Paul Institute.

More censorship from non-hate speech crowd? most likely to promote hate speech, the anti-war voices?

Of interest is that to post on this very website one must be "approved" by a moderator, and that said monitor can be anyone for any reason.

Alex Jones has every right to believe that the Newtown school shooting was a hoax or that Hilary Clinton ran a child-sex ring out of a pizza parlor or that millions of undocumented immigrants vote or even that Glenn Beck is a CIA operative but a private company is under no obligation to disseminate these bat-shit crazy claims. Jones is an A1 crackpot, which should tell you a lot about anyone that follows him.

Unfortunately Gerald I have to agree with you except about the moderation here .
There is a documented history of its' failures (read public square), evident by the fact you are still here ( albeit occaisionall) .
Nice drive by Gerald.

I'll remind Bruce that I have been banned from this site at least twice, back when Scott was the owner.

First I've heard that the former Sea Goddess is being censored. By whom? How?

Scott never banned me from the site, lol, though apparently he said I don't care what other people think. Of course that isn't true, I don't care what you or Bruce thinks, but I do care what other people think, especially when they support destruction of liberties and support monopolies like Youtube, twitter, etc

The idea that the elite in this country don't want to stifle free expression of ideas allowed by the internet on many sites is a farce. The idea that the five corporate media companies that own 90 percent of the MSM don't want to stifle even this site is a farce. If anything else the corporations would do it as just a business decision to increase profits.

The great thing about electing Trump was not so much about his policies, but to watch the MSM go bat shit crazy over that election and also to watch the seated bureaucracy and politicians go bat shit crazy over potentially losing some of their stranglehold on this country.

I'm hoping for no blue wave this mid term and certainly the attempt by these oligarchs to stifle dissent just before November is part of their cause of denying tweets and channels. How does it feel Gerald to be entwined with billionaire oligarchs attempting to sway an election, you are a big FBI NSA CIA supporter now also right. Ahh the new Stasi

Apparently you can only be forced to serve someone if your business is baking cakes. Funny how the left suddenly finds that businesses have a right to refuse service when they agree with the political position of the business. If it wasn't for double standards they'd have no standards at all.
