Alex Jones was permanently banned from Twitter on Thursday for so-called "abusive behavior" one day after confronting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, CNN's Oliver Darcy and Senators Marco Rubio and Ron Wyden at a public hearing in Washington DC on Big Tech censorship.
Paul Joseph Watson was also hit with a 12 hour ban for tweeting out video of Alex Jones's confrontation with Oliver Darcy.
Not only was the @RealAlexJones account permabanned but also Alex Jones's news organization @Infowars.
Twitter released a vague statement in the interest of "transparency" where they justified the ban by claiming he violated their "abusive behavior policy." They refused to specify exactly what broke their vague terms.
It appears like Twitter may have tipped off the media before carrying out the banning. Nearly all fake news outlets ran with the "abusive behavior" angle despite being given zero specifics:
Here's how the AP reported it:
Twitter permanently banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars show for abusive behavior, a day after CEO Jack Dorsey testified before Congress about alleged bias against conservatives on the platform.Alex Jones responded to the ban on Infowars:
As Styxhexenhammer noted, Alex Jones's crime was doing actual journalism.
It strongly appears he was banned for making fun of CNN's chief censorship advocate and hall monitor Oliver Dorsey:
Tucker Carlson indirectly criticized the banning on Twitter:
Conservatives were furious:
Though Jones was banned for confronting a CNN propagandist at a public hearing, CNN is allowed to dox old ladies and harass them at their homes for sharing some alleged Russian posts on Facebook:
According to Infowars' Rob Dew, a source told him CNN's Oliver Darcy "was giving 'high fives and butt slaps' to employees" after hearing news of the ban.
Just a few months ago, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted out an article -- which he said was a "great read" -- that said the US is in a second "civil war" with no "bipartisan way forward" and "one side or the other must win."
Are Republicans ever going to realize these neo-Bolsheviks hate America, hate free speech, hate the free press and want every Trump supporter to be subject to show trials and thrown in gulags?
