Twitter has finally banned Alex Jones & Infowars

Message added by Crunchy Dragon

Quick reminder to keep this civil and non-political

So if you remember last month there was a big kafuffle over Infowars being allowed to continue posting to Twitter despite AJ & IW being banned from all other social media outlets for claiming a school shooting where children were killed was faked.

 

Seemingly out of the blue Twitter has reversed that decision and within the last few hours have "permanently suspended" (why use an oxymoron?) both Alex Jones personal account and his Infowars account.

Quote

Twitter says it has permanently suspended the accounts of Alex Jones and his Infowars website.

 

It made the move after a number of tweets that violated Twitter's abusive behaviour policy, the company said.

A number of tech giants, including YouTube and Facebook, deleted the right-wing conspiracy theorist's content last month, citing hate speech.

 

Jones is best known as a hate filled conspiracy nut who is currently fighting a lawsuit in relation to his claims that the Sandy Hook School shootings, in which 20 children and 6 adults died, was a hoax.

Quote

The radio host is best known for spreading unsubstantiated allegations about tragic events, including 9/11.

 

He is currently being sued for defamation by the parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, which he has repeatedly claimed was a "giant hoax". Twenty children under the age of seven and six adults died in the attack.

Twitter have refused to confirm exactly why he has now been banned but have confirmed that recent posts made my him have been reported and are in breach of the site's abusive behaviour rules.

Quote

Twitter said the ban was a result of "new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behaviour policy, in addition to the accounts' past violations".

 

It did not specify what the violations were.

 

It added that it does "not typically comment on enforcement actions... against individual accounts", but was "open about this action given the broad interest in this case".

So normally I'm against censorship, especially against conspiracy nuts like him, as when you censor them you enable them to shout their message even louder. Leave them be and most sound minded people will ignore them.

 

In his case however I can't hide the fact I'm glad he's banned from spreading his hate to social media. This guy is especially repugnant and pretty much everything he says is hurtful or disrespectful to someone.

 

Good job for doing the right thing finally Twitter, shame it took you a month longer than everyone else.

Normally I'd agree with you but not this time, he deserves to be banned from every public outlet.

What ever you think about Alex Jones and Infowars, this blatent censorship and will lead down a dark path where anyone can be banned/silenced for having an option that is not in line with the status quo or the Media's current agenda

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

That's not why he was banned.  He was banned for harassment and for that lawsuit.

Why? Because you don't like him?

I don't like numerous outlets (trust me, I could list 'em but for the sake of this I have no need to), but I don't believe they should be censored outright, not at all.

That's also not how the first works.  It means Congress can't do anything about it.  However, he's being banned for harassment, a lawsuit, and plenty of other reasons.

It's not censorship, not this time. You can only censor the truth and to say his message is being censored is basically agreeing with it.

Because they don't realize that the first amendment only applies to Congress?  They also seem to not understand why he's been banned.  Even if it wasn't just applied to Congress you can't make threats, harass people, and so on.

I feel kinda mixed on this topic but yeah I'd agree, the media is whining about free speech yet is just fine shutting down everyone that doesn't completely follow them.

No, I don't know him. I don't like anybody who can stand there and say a school shooting in which 26 people died was a hoax.

But, that's not how free speech works.  And again, he's being banned for other reasons not for speaking his mind.  If you actually watched his content he makes threats, harasses peoples, is in a lawsuit over the Sandy Hook thing, and more.

I understand the desire to side with the banning because he'sa douche....

 

TLDR: As long as Jones was given the same warnings system and treatment as everyone else, it's fine. He violated standards. Otherwise, jumping in the band wagon isn't right.

 

However, censorship is still censorship. If he blatantly violated the terms, did he get the same warnings that anyone else would get? If not, then I'd say his banning is unsur unfair. Why? Because social media goodness already have enough influence over what we read and are exposed to. If they censor right wonder loonies, they need to treat them the same as the left wing loonies. (And i don't think that actually happens)

It's not censorship, not this time. You can only censor the truth and to say his message is being censored is basically agreeing with it.

I don't know the guy or watch any of his videos but banning him is a form of censorship whether he is right or wrong. 

 

I don't get people, first they all bitch when their freedom of speech is taken, sites block, opinions banned, but then when one guy spews his opinion suddenly its fine??

 

Seriously people, make up your fucking minds. All or none.

The internet on a whole seems to be cracking down on free speech. They put it under the guise of 'no toxicity', whatever that means

Why are you people against private companies deciding who they want to do business with?

Many people are against it because if the power and influence these companies have. Many believe they have social (though not legal) obligation to act ethically.
