The censorship seemed to have cooled off, but only for a moment. Now, YouTube has taken it upon itself to ban Alex Jones’ (the creator of InfoWars) from his secondary channel on the video websites.
Resistance News, which was a secondary Infowars channel on YouTube, according to Media Matters, was banned from the platform because of how Jones described last week’s New Zealand mosque shootings. He called the shootings a “false flag” operation and opined about Muslims. Jones continues to operate his website in the wake of major censorship.
Sadly, Jones isn’t the only one being censored. The New Zealand massacre has lead to massive criminalization of free speech worldwide. Governments are demanding social media platforms such as Facebook censor anyone who doesn’t toe the line and spout the government’s official narrative – the only narrative you’re allowed to ponder.
According to Engadget, Resistance News had more than 64,000 subscribers by the time YouTube killed the channel, which exclusively hosted Infowars videos. Articles on the Infowars site also embedded Resistance News videos. The now-deleted New Zealand video included footage from the gunman’s live stream of the shooting, according to the aforementioned report by Media Matters. Jones also included a clip of Rush Limbaugh promoting the false flag theory, while the video reportedly ended with ads for Infowars products. The Resistance News channel had posted several other videos related to the attack.
YouTube permanently banned Jones’ Infowars channel in August of last year, and they announced that their algorithms would no longer suggest “conspiracy videos” to users.
