ABOVE VIDEO: “YouTube has officially terminated The Alex Jones Channel from their video platform as part of their political purge of the internet in preparation for the midterms and the 2020 presidential election,” said Infowars in a statement.
(NBC NEWS) – Facebook, Google and Apple have each taken steps to remove conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their platforms, marking a significant shift in the approach taken by big tech companies to the radio host.
Facebook on Monday announced that it had unpublished four pages belonging to Alex Jones for repeatedly violating the company’s standards with inflammatory posts about transgender people, Muslims and immigrants, among other infractions.
Facebook said in a blog post that pages belonging to Jones have continued to post content that went against its community standards. Facebook unpublished the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the Infowars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page.
Jones and Infowars had a combined total of more than 2.5 million followers on Facebook across their pages.
“Upon review, we have taken it down for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies,” the statement said in part.
