I was disgusted with Alex Jones’ comments on Sandy Hook when I lived in Newtown, CT years ago. I knew children killed by the Sandy Hook shooter (I won’t speak the gunman’s name). One family whose child was murdered was very close to mine. I witnessed first hand the horror those parents, and the town went through, and are still dealing with to this day (for instance, property values are still down because of the shootings). I can still vividly remember the fear in my mother’s voice the day of the murders when she called asking where my children were.
Alex Jones and his media outlet Infowars were completely de-platformed from big-tech social media and ancillary technology platforms two years ago. The excuse used was doubts expressed on his show as to the veracity of the murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School years before.
Jones is despised by many, and hated with a passion by those on the Left for his behavior regarding the murders. For what’s its worth, he has apologized on air multiple times.
However, i also served in the U.S. military, and took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States, from enemies foreign, and domestic.
If big-tech and the globalist elites are not a threat to the American Constitutional republic, I don’t know what is.
As we experience the beginnings of the Neo-Bolshevik revolution in America, many vets say to Leftist protesters, “I don’t agree with your words, but I’ll fight to the death for you to have the right to say them”. This is not a meme. This is a sworn oath that most of us take seriously, even after leaving the armed forces.
The real reason Jones was taken off the air was because he was right more than he had been wrong as to the globalist scourge we are facing today in the West.
He has been right about the Chicoms, and their push to take over the world. He has been right about Black Lives Matter and its connections to ANTIFA. He has been right about the pedophilia of the elites. I could go on and on and on.
This is the real reason he was deplatformed — because he is effective, too effective for the elite’s liking when it comes to bringing America the truth as to what is happening to our beloved republic in the face of these enemies among us.
These tech platforms are not ‘publishers’. They are political propaganda machines.
Everyone knows this. Conservatives, spineless Republicans in Congress and elsewhere don’t want to admit it, as they are bought and paid for by Google or Facebook, or may have their standing in life threatened. How disgustingly weak.
We as Americans are given a birthright to free speech, to due process, to freedom of religion, to freedom of assembly. When Alex Jones was de-platformed, those rights were taken away, in a coordinated conspiracy I might add.
And conservatives did nothing.
The Trump administration did nothing.
I seem to remember a saying that starts with, first they came for the Jews…then it ends with, then they came for me and there was no one to help.
Well, they are coming for so-called ‘mainstream’ conservatives now; The Federalist just found out the hard way as Google threatened to take down their advertising. Google, Twitter, Facebook are breaking election law, and it will be very tough to win an election with your ability to get a message out to the public curtailed.
If Donald J. Trump loses the presidential election in November of this year, the American republic as we have known her will be destroyed.
Then there will be no one left to protect you when they come for you, your family, your children, your church.
If Trump loses the election, it will be because he did nothing to protect the Constitutional rights of Alex Jones, despise him or not. Even those who say offensive things have Constitutional rights. If we don’t protect them for everyone, everyone will lose them.
