This news comes as Twitter is shadow banning prominent republicans.
I really take absolutely zero smug pleasure in being like, “if you don’t stand up for the free speech of the most controversial speakers, they will come for you once they have silenced us.”
I basically only stopped paying attention to Alex Jones when I found Daily Stormer during the 2016 election.
It was just a refined version of the collective consciousness that was growing on 4chan. Maybe that makes me a newfag, maybe that makes me “not a wignat” – whatever. I appreciate the Stormfront guys, especially when they send us shekels so we can expand, but I’m just too young to have really been into it.
Alex Jones, though – he can be silly and fake sometimes, but he also will tell you some real things from time to time.
I don’t know if jet fuel can melt steel beams, but I’m pretty sure I know you can’t knock down three buildings with two planes.
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ YouTube channel received a strike on Tuesday for violating the site’s community guidelines, The Verge has learned. YouTube removed four videos from Jones’ channel, which has 2.4 million subscribers, that contained instances of hate speech and child endangerment, sources familiar with the matter said. YouTube channels are deleted if they get three strikes in a three-month period.
Two videos contained hate speech against Muslims, and a third contained hate speech against transgender people, sources said. A fourth showed a child who was pushed to the ground by an adult man, under the headline “How to prevent liberalism.” All four of the videos are currently posted on Infowars.
I normally wouldn’t plug Infowars, but I think you should see those four videos if you want to know what the “new standard” is for hate speech.
“Learn how Islam has Conquered Europe” is only hate speech in so far as it refers to the Islamic colonization of Europe, something which is objectively happening.
I guess you’re not allowed to write some things.
The offending videos do not include Jones’ threatening rant about Robert Mueller, which stirred a controversy earlier this week after it was posted on Facebook. That video does not appear to have been uploaded to YouTube.
A post on Infowars said the videos had been posted “in a news, documentary, scientific or artistic context.” The Verge reached out to Infowars for comment and will update this post if we hear back.
“We have longstanding policies against child endangerment and hate speech.”a YouTube spokeswoman said in a statement. “We apply our policies consistently according to the content in the videos, regardless of the speaker or the channel. We also have a clear three-strikes policy and we terminate channels when they receive three strikes in three months.”
The video showing the child being shoved was posted to dozens of channels and was removed in each instance, sources said.
Jones’ channel previously received a strike from YouTube in February after it promoted the false theory that survivors of the Parkland shooting were actually trained “crisis actors.” That violated YouTube’s policy against harassment and bullying. But strikes expire three months after they are issued, meaning Jones’ channel currently just has one strike against it, sources said.
Maybe the beard is causing him to channel the spirit of wise old men with beards. Whatever his angle, if he wants to tell people about the Islamic invasion, that actually helps what I’m trying to do here.
I’m more a clean-shaven guy myself, though.
I know a guy who did some time, and he told me that, basically –
(I’m sorry, mister Anglin – I respect your moustache, but I’m just quoting directly here – )
Me: So, wouldn’t it make sense to grow a beard to appear less attractive?
Prison Guy: New guy with a big beard is new guy that’s scared. I guess it helps hide if you’re good-looking, but new guy who can fight and will fight doesn’t care if you notice that he’s good-looking. The guys who are tough don’t need facial hair – if man has a pair he knows it and he doesn’t even need to project it aggressively onto you.
I train, I can fight.
I consider myself to be a professional.
I like to look professional.
I like to look appealing so that people feel drawn to me. This increases my power.
And, hey –
You do your thing, and I’ll do my thing. I guess, if you’re old, maybe you should grow a beard, and hang out on Stormfront, or listen to Alex Jones still even though TRS now exists and is less commercial.
I dunno – you’ve gotta figure that out for yourself.
Since you’re reading the Stormer, you’re probably not at Alex’s “beard nationalism” age, or even at the age to do “moustache nationalism.”
Try to look and feel like a professional killer.
If you’re young, and you’ve got a good face, it looks good.
