“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
I regard Alex Jones and his Info Wars as noxious. They are the very epitome of fake news. However, the banning of him by Facebook is an obvious part of the strategy of the Left to “deplatform” the right. RSMcCain, who was banned from twitter in 2016, explains:
There are many reasons I should include disclaimers to “distance” myself, as they say, from Alex Jones. He was a 9/11 “Truther” back in the day, and personally I have a hard time forgiving him for siccing a mob of his supporters on Michelle Malkin at the 2008 DNC in Denver. Yet this is not why Alex Jones is being de-platformed now. Rather, CNN and others on the Left are seeking to silence Alex Jones because he has been effective in calling attention to various facts that the Left desperately seeks to conceal from the general public. Please go read the entirely of the Ace of Spades post about this and ask yourself: “Who’s next?”
Go here to read the rest. The precious snowflakes on the port side of our politics tend to do poorly in robust debate, and thus they wish to silence those who oppose them. Mob tactics against speakers and “deplatforming” by social media controlled by Leftitist, like Facebook, is all part of this “crybully” strategy. People who understand freedom of speech need to counter this attempt to create an enslaved Public Square in a free country.
