Alex Jones: “We Are Going Under Digital Martial Law”
PlanetFreeWill.com ^

Posted on 09/08/2018 5:15:01 PM PDT by PFW

In a video published on Infowars.com on Saturday, Alex Jones declared that “digital martial law” is being put in place to “shut down all free speech that is not pro-leftist and pro-democratic party.”

“We are going under digital martial law just 58 days out from the (midterm) election,” Jones said in the video.

“This is authoritarianism. Every prominent conservative or nationalist or capitalist or pro-Trump person I know has either been shadowbanned or completely banned on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, you name it. They’re going after prominent conservative, Jewish activist David Horowitz and taking away their credit card processing … They are organizing into online brigades directed by big corporate media to shut down all free speech that is not pro-leftist and pro-democratic party.”

Jones’ words come after Apple permanently banned the’ Infowars app from its App Store, taking away one of the last remaining pipelines to a mainstream audience the Trump-backing conservative had.

Not an Alex Jones fan, but he is correct.
Big Silicon is squelching conservative voices.

There are numerous conservative sites that have been illegally censored. Personally, I do not want us to make Alex Jones the poster boy for this issue. He is controlled opposition.

Examples: Diamond & Silk, Prager U, Candace Owens and countless other individuals.

In theory, yes. China implemented the “social score” for the citizens. The tech giants are in bed with China and carrying this out here and abroad. Wecome to “utopia”.

None of those people have been censored to the extent that Alex Jones has. They've had YouTube videos demonetized. Alex Jones is in the process of being banned from the internet.

If not Alex Jones and InfoWars, then who? Because they're not going to stop with him. They're just getting started.

I agree.

But, tell us something we don’t know Alex.

Jones is low hanging fruit. This will only encourage the left to be bolder in banning

Tech titans are banning conservatives on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.

Keep in mind these are publicly-held companies subject to SEC rules and regs.

The SEC looks askance at companies that mislead investors.....or if they falsified Annual Reports.

Contact enforcement@SEC.gov

..., Alex Jones declared that “digital martial law” is being put in place to “shut down all free speech that is not pro-leftist and pro-democratic party...

When Democrats and other liberals can’t silence someone, then they must be destroyed. No opposition or criticism will be tolerated.

This is an extremely serious problem due to the monopolistic power of just a few outfits like google twitter Facebook. Break up the monopolistic market control characteristics of just a few companies and the censorship problem will dissipate And the laws exist to do it. Politically they’re part now if the deep State and they’ve got politicians protecting them it seems too. Very dangerous

Enjoy the schadenfreude, conservatives.

Tech titans, Obama, the US govt intel apparat, the MSM, and millions of dollars still could not drag Hillary over the finish line.

I agree, totally. And it’s scaring the sh!t outta me. I saw this coming several years ago when news sites started banning their own discussion sites or opting into other platforms to censor like Disqus, etc. Also insisting using a cell # and email for confirmation, etc.

Boiling frogs at this point.

The left is learning. Years ago they went after the biggest most mainstream conservative commentator, Rush Limbaugh, and it repeatedly blew up in their faces.

Now they are working from the bottom up. Set the precedent that the most radical must go and as each one falls someone else becomes "the most radical."

Of course that’s what they did to Jones first - demonetized. They do it in stages like a frog in water.

DO NOT underestimate them. The banks, credit card cos, internet titans, and Democraps are ALL in cahoots. We will (and are) being “unpersoned”. We will exist only in the flesh....but will not be allowed on their platforms to buy and sell because of beliefs “they” disagree with.

Maybe at some point these companies will ask their users to somehow mark themselves differently from those untouchable, undesirable and persona-non-grata hooligans on the right...

... Maybe something like a mark on their arm. Or hand. Or forehead.

Then they can happily use these services !

No, he is not.

Martial Law is when the military runs the civil government. And that has nothing to do with what the nut Jones is ranting about.

“Alex Jones is in the process of being banned from the internet.”

Ludicrous.
