Alex Jones Banned Over Video of Confrontation With “Evil-Looking” CNN Reporter

1

All Twitter accounts belonging to Alex Jones and Infowars have been permanently suspended within hours of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey testifying before Congress. He was suspended for behavior outside of Twitter when he posted the video of a confrontation with an “evil looking” CNN reporter with the “eyes of a rat”.

Reportedly, Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet shared the video of the confrontation and, as a result, he has been put under a limited 12-hour suspension while Twitter investigates him. He is the editor-at-large of Infowars.com.

Any accounts associated with Alex Jones will be investigated.

Shortly before Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday, Jones confronted CNN’s Oliver Darcy outside the hearing room, accusing the reporter of leading a campaign to purge Infowars from the Internet.

A Twitter spokesperson told the Daily Beast that Jones’ exchange with Darcy violated the platform’s Terms of Services.

During the confrontation, Jones told the reporter he had the “eyes of a rat”, was “evil-looking”, “anti-American”, and a “virus”. What if those statements are true?

Darcy frequently puts out articles claiming that conservative censorship is a fallacy. He accused the President of spreading fake news.

The controversial Libertarian and accused conspiracy theorist has been completely de-platformed at this point.

If the banning was even-handed, that would be one thing, but it doesn’t appear to be.

The all-time haters Louis Farrakhan, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas are still on Twitter. Racist Sarah Jeong, now a NY Times editor, maintains her racist account as does child jokester James Gunn.

Videos of White House staff being harrassed are still okay.

Only the right-wing has to have healthy conversations.

The confrontation that allegedly got him banned once posted:

  1. How interesting is that the Twitter post of the ban, And, a post by Darcy have the Exact Same timestamp.

    People in media circles believe they are above reproach and scrutiny in any manner whatsoever.

    Rubio’s attitude is a sure sign how Little the Republicans are concerned about their supporters. They will go on and on about “foreign election interference”, Yet, do nothing about Tech companies suppressing the right. When someone takes a video of a Periscope by Cernovich and overlay it with sounds of child abuse and then tag it with a Child Protective Service should that not warrant action by Twitter. How many occasions have we seen Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube say it doesn’t “violate” Their rules.

    The latest rationale I’ve heard is comparing a case as this to “Free Speech” in the “Workplace”. The two aren’t even remotely related. Alex Jones is NOT an employee of Twitter. Others make the argument you can’t regulate these companies. Well, they are already under regulations, namely the CDA, by an exemption. New laws had to be passed in order to combat Backpage. Some good lawyers could bring a RICO case in certain instances.

    There are also State laws to contend with. California has certain laws that could put these companies in jeopardy.
