Big Tech Blockade: Infowars Banned From Vimeo, Criteo And Shopify

The tech blockade against Alex Jones and Infowars is continuing to expand.

From Infowars:
Advertising platform Criteo has caved to mob outrage and banned Infowars in yet another example of Big Tech censorship.

A Criteo senior manager said Infowars was, "in violation of our advertising guidelines," yet gave no specifics whatsoever on precisely what terms of service we had violated.

Despite the company, which numerous other big conservative news outlets use for advertising, reaching out to Infowars after we were previously banned by AdRoll, it has now succumbed to the online brigading that was launched as a result of Apple, Facebook, YouTube and others arbitrarily censoring Infowars content.

This is somewhat perplexing given that Criteo first billed itself as a libertarian-leaning company that supported free speech. Evidently, Criteo does not support free speech, it supports giant corporate monopolies deciding what you can and can't see on the Internet.

Meanwhile, Shopify payments also contacted us to announce that they were pulling their services.

This clearly represents tortious interference, which occurs when one person intentionally damages someone else's contractual or business relationships with a third party causing economic harm.
The amount of power these tech companies have been allowed to amass unchecked it insane. We need legislation or a Republican form of "net neutrality" regulation which will ensure free speech is protected online.
