Alex Jones did his part to get Donald Trump (a big fan) into office

Jones is now claming there is a conspiracy to shut him down



Ask Donald Trump to Fight Back Against 'Fake News' Attacks » Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
This is a red level emergency.

Infowars, Breitbart, the Drudge Report and other independent sources are destroying the mainstream media narrative like never before, and the establishment is getting desperate.
In an effort to try and censor the liberty movement and free speech, the mainstream media is now attempting to label legitimate news sources like Infowars as "fake news" to push towards a government-led shut down of Infowars.com.

How do you think all elements of society should deal with Mr Jones ? His suporters / readers ?

Whether you like him or not, or his rhetoric, the guy should be free to speak his mind.

He's a lunatic. And the best course of action is to continue to allow the light of rationality shine brightly on him.

I don't think a law banning anti globalist websites like infowars.com would be constitutional in the US. I suspect it may be attempted in traditionally censorious countries like France though.

Obama signed over control of ICANN To an international body. If it was to decide to let other countries ban websites it might denude the protections of the US 1st Amendment. Maybe not in the US as it isn't a treaty ratified by the US Senate. But Irish websites on US based server might no longer be able to argue that US law applies.

Anyone that gives Alex Jones more than 60 seconds of their time is probably as crazy as he is.

I don't think anyone is questioning his right to free speech. Just that anyone should take him seriously. And perhaps that those defamed by him should have the effective capacity to sue him.

The other thing is that, very sensibly, a number of social media providers are making some effort to withdraw their platform from his most outrageous lies.

Most of this bottle of smoke is based on the ridiculous idea that "freedom of speech" means that Jones somehow has a right to use the public platforms provided by the social media providers.

He doesn't.

It's an interesting one. This chancer pushes the envelope of free speech very far and the social media platforms have every right to pull his conspiracy loonball rubbish. Problem is this feeds the conspiracy that he has something the state wants to suppress.

Facebook et al need to be very clear why they are limiting his lucrative free ride

If it was just rhetoric there wouldn't be a problem. His freedom to lie in an interesting discussion

The just is out on whether Jones is a brilliant businessman exploiting the bewildered or one of the bewildered.

As long as that works both ways, then that's fine. But it doesn't now does it. Because the law is inaccessible to Joe Soap because of cost, bias and corruption.
