Alex Jones of Infowars has been booted from YouTube, Apple,Spotify and Facebook for what the tech giants consider his rampant hate speeches. And with that, Jones has become the face of the censorship fight.
He’s well on his way to becoming a martyr — meaning, many of those who don’t even like his content or appreciate his style are gearing up, nevertheless, to defend his right to speak on these social media stations.
This seems counterproductive to those who would silence him, yes? Google “Jones” and what appears is a page filled with Alex Jones news. It’s not just free advertising for Infowars; it’s turning Jones himself into the cause celebre of the conservatives’ censorship fight.
And nobody knows it better than Jones. Check out his Twitter account. It’s filled with posts that draw attention to his plight — followed by handy-dandy links to his show.
Good for him. That’s not just the capitalistic way. It’s the classic way of getting back at one’s enemies. Rather than going away, Jones is growing larger.
