    Alex Jones Was Banned From Youtube, Facebook And Other Social Media Sites

    Hey everybody. I just heard that Alex Jones have been banned from Youtube, Facebook and Other Social Media sites. And if you don't know who Alex Jones is well he's a Republican Conspiracy Theorist who have his own news company called Info Wars. He made so many theories about 9/11, ISIS and other political theories. I'm going to be very honest with everyone. 1. I definately don't agree with all the stuff he said. 2. I think he's a loud mouth jerk. 3. I don't think he doesn't deserved to be banned on all the social media sites because he have the right to say whatever he want whatever you agree with him or not and also I do believe in free speech. So please don't get upset at me for what I'm saying here. I'm not defending this guy or anything but he doesn't deserve to be banned. And we the people have the right to say whatever we want to say.

    I think social media should be able to do whatever they want to protect themselves from lawsuits due to allowing a platform for someone that stokes people up the way Jones does. They also should be able to protect their reputation.

    Free speech isn't ubiqiutous. You can be fired from a job for example for saying somethng bad.

    Let jones create his own social media site so he can spew his lies. On this point I would like to mention that Jones is being sued by the families of those children killed in the mass shooting at that elementry school a few years ago. Jones said that it was all fake. That the families were actors paid by the government and encouraged his listeners/views to contact the families. The poor parents of those kids have been harrased, recieved death threats, and are even followed and confronted in public. So yeah, poor Alex Jones. Boo freaking hooo.

    Youtube is private property. Jones has a first amendment right to be a raging ***hat. Youtube has a right to tell him that he needs to be a raging ***hat somewhere else because they don't feel like putting up with his bs.

    This is no different than PF mods evicting spammers on sight or permabanning members who are unwilling or unable to follow the rules. The First Amendment prevents the police from arresting you for speech (most of the time). It does not obligate your neighbors to lend you a megaphone or force them to tolerate you spewing vitriol in their yard.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I agree with everyone. The First Amendment is there to protect our rights of speech as citizens. However, this does not relate to someone who is a bully. Who gets off on bullying people on social media and such. If he wants to make his presence known and talk crap, I agree with pillar, create his own damned social media website. Until then get off our websites. We don't need anymore negativity.

    Re: Alex Jones Was Banned From Youtube, Facebook And Other Social Media Sites

    Amendment 1 says:

    "Congress shall make no law ... abridging freedom of speech, or of the press."

    Congress didn't make a law, therefore, Jones's 1st Amendment right was not violated in any way.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Private companies aren't the government...they have all the right to ban whomever and whatever they want to.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I would like to add that freedom of speech does not mean freedom of consequences of that speech. He has the right to spout whatever verbal diarrhea he wishes, but then he has to face the consequences, which are that companies don't want to be associated with him. I hope he crawls back under his rock and concocts his offensive and asinine theories in silence from now on, but I fear he will find another outlet.
