Apple Bans Most InfoWars Podcasts Over Hate Speech

Alex Jones ‘patriots’ rush to App Store to download Infowars app

Despite Alex Jones' constant propagation of conspiracy theories and his brash and aggressive presentation style his popularity has soared over the past decade building up a loyal fan base called Infowarriors. "Moving forward, we all need more clarity on what their rules are and how they intend to enforce them".

"We've been banned completely on Facebook, Apple and Spotify", Jones tweeted on Monday.

Senator Murphy rejected the criticism, arguing that restrictions on free speech by companies could not be compared to government censorship and that the case of Jones - who is a controversial figure standing accused of endorsing conspiracy theories and bullying - would not lead to more cases of online censorship of popular voices.

Dorsey admitted that Twitter has done a bad job of explaining their reasoning in the past but said the company was working on effectively improving communication with the general public. "We'll enforce if he does", Dorsey tweeted.

Rather than banning people like Jones, Dorsey explained that journalists should work to refute unsubstantiated rumors, which will allow people to form their own opinions. But Jones' Infowars app remained available for download via Apple.

Twitter CEO on decision not to ban Alex Jones: 'He hasn't violated our rules' | TheHill

Dorsey said on Twitter that the company would not cave to "outside pressure".

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, has defended the firm's decision to continue to publish tweets from Alex Jones.

Meanwhile on Wednesday 8 August, Alex Jones created a Periscope live stream on Twitter in reaction to Dorsey's comments. In a defamation suit filed in Connecticut Superior Court in late May, the families said Jones promotes conspiracies to drive traffic to his website and subsequently sell products to his followers. "The site may go down today, just like they did to the Nazi's...", and added: "You guys are using race as a controller and it's sick and its wrong and its at the wrong side of history". "Well, Jones earned this latest scrutiny when he addressed Russian Federation investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller on his show, imitated firing a gun, and said, 'You're going to get it, or I'm going to die trying'".

"The war on your mind is in full swing as globalists remove outlets of liberty and truth, starting with the top of the speak: Alex Jones", a statement on his website read. You will ascend to Hell in the reverse order.
