This is what a smart Jew sounds like.
>facts are all that matters, the left is just all about emotions and subjective feelings
>argues against "leftist" climate change

Bruh it's science. When close to 100% of all scientists in a field agree on something, it's not "the left" or a progressive point of view espousing this that you can just dismiss because you disagree with environmental protection laws. The existence of climate change and its impact is an apolitical issue.
isn't their exclusion from professional discussion on the subject enough?

social media is a recreational outlet and there is no standard of peer review that must be upheld for the esposition of a hypothesis as fact in a recreational setting

further, these news mediums pride themselves on being outside of common journalistic integrity and actually use their radically unthorough methods of "research" to attract their viewers, because that's what people who subscribe to infowars want; the nitpicking of details to create this vision of reality that splits from an overarching analysis of facts presented by respectable mediums because it chooses to weld these things they have picked out into an absurdist image instead of using the image provided by reality itself

in other words, can we really fault anyone for telling people what they want to hear, especially when nobody else is taking them seriously anyway?

this is the reality that capitalism in the 21st century invites upon us, and as long as it is profitable to 'confirm' the suspicions of maniacs we not only have to but should be willing to accept those consequences, unless we eschew the idea of a capital driven information market altogether

He got removed from a handful of corporate social media sites because he's a sperg that peddles conspiratorial nonsense and insults victims of mass murders.

Funny how it's "business autonomy" when it suits /pol/acks, but censorship when it doesn't. Decide which it is.

You'll notice soon this wasn't about Alex Jones.

I DONT GIVE A SINGLE -blam!- MOTHER -blam!-ER ITS A MOTHER -blam!-ING FORUM, OH WOW, YOU HAVE THE WORD NINJA BELOW YOUR NAME, HOW MOTHER -blam!-ING COOL, NOT, YOUR ARE NOTHING TO ME BUT A BRAINWASHED PIECE OF SHIT BLOGGER, PEOPLE ONLY LIKE YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE NINJA BELOW YOUR NAME, SO PLEASE PUNCH YOURAELF IN THE FACE AND STAB YOUR EYE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A PIECE OF SHIT OF SOCIETY
As long as he did nothing illegal then I have more respect for any platform that doesn't ban him or Infowars. I may not care for Alex Jones but I do like when any site upholds the values of freedom of expression even though they aren't legally required to.

The seemingly coordinated banning seems like a bad idea, regardless, as it just gives the guy more reason to claim the establishment is oppressing him and his supporters.

I like to see people on the fringes pulled closer to the center, not forced further into the fringe. If it means having to deal with a partisan conspiratorial cook like Jones then so be it.
He openly bullshits though and calls his network a genuine news outlet, if he labelled himself as a comedy actor it would be fine.
I may not agree with his practices but, regardless, I still value freedom of expression over protecting people from his ideas. People should be treated with the kind of basic respect that allows them to decide for themselves what ideas they choose to listen to and believe. I would never presume to say that, because I disagree with Alex Jones, other people should't be allowed to listen to what he says.
People should absolutely be protected from propaganda designed to harm the fabric of society.

If that's the case then CNN should be banned for spreading propaganda.

IDGAF. Nobody, not even ANTIFA, deserves to be deplatformed.
hahaha fucking liar
I don't even like Alex Jones. Doesn't mean I think he should be banned from every platform. Not going to bother arguing with you though.
Because you'll lose. Because you and I both know you'd be happy if The Young Turks got banned from YouTube. And that you'd come up with some bullshit alt right "logic" to try and rationalize it.
Except I wouldn't because you don't know fucking shit. I'm a Libertarian, not Alt-Right. I'm not even a fucking White Identitarian. Nobody deserves to be deplatformed. Not TYT, not InfoWars, not Varg, not Buzzfeed, not anybody. Fuck off.
Do you think action should be taken to rectify this then?

Alex Jones is an actor in the same regard as Sacha Baron Cohen, he should come out so his online presence can be reinstated.

I'm not willing to give up my right or anyone else's right to listen to controversial or offensive ideas for the sake of ideological stability in society. Sounds like a dystopian nanny state just waiting to happen.

There was only one truth in the Soviet Union as we know it. The EU is following the same path.

Fuck off and fuck you. Don't you dare fucking assume shit about me. You don't know goddamn shit. I stopped giving a shit about that dumpster fire of a board ages ago. I don't believe in censorship of any kind and never have. I never stopped being Libertarian just because I ironically spouted /pol/ memes at one point in time. I don't buy into the white supremacist autism and never truly have because it just leads to the same authoritarian collectivist bullshit that the far left is so fond of.
If you're libertarian then surely you should be happy about businesses exercising their right to expel someone they don't want on their platform.

You can't (presumably) champion the free market then turn around and cry censorship when said free market inconveniences you.

Like I said, choose your side of the fence and stick to it.

YouTube (And all other big tech sites for that matter) should be regulated as utilities and thus beholden to the US Constitution because Google is a US based firm and is currently the main platform for people to air their political grievances. Nobody should be kicked off unless they are doing something explicitly illegal.
So you're a libertarian, which is the political affiliation that's all about laissez-faire capitalism, minimal government and maximum economic freedom at its very core, that supports the extensive regulation of and government involvement in "all big tech sites"? That seems a bit contradictory. It also makes me wonder about the practical feasibility of any of that. The thing about tech companies offering services is that they can pretty easily change where they're located. No big tech company would want to be regulated and treated as a public utility so they'd simply move their headquarters to, say, Europe where existing hate speech laws would just give them more of a reason to continue removing this kind of content.

Oligarchy is hardly capitalism as hardly any competition is actually taking place. There is (currently) no competition in regards to social media because big tech's competitors are not yet big enough to be viable. I support and endorse them when I can, but they aren't at the point where they can realistically compete yet. Given how often big tech firms collude with one another I'd say they're probably violating some anti-trust laws anyway. Big tech is so big that if you get kicked off, then you effectively do not have the right exercise your freedom of speech. I'd love if we could solve the issue of online censorship through pure capitalism, but I fear that YouTube in particular has become too big for its own good and the government has to step in and explicitly make it beholden to the US Constitution.
None of this reads like you actually know what you're talking about.

Get of my lawn
Riddle me this Libertarians: What happened here? Corporate actors in a free market economy cut an individual who violated their TOS, or Leftists silenced an important right wing voice?

This reminds me of that woman who refused to make a wedding cake for the gay couple. She said she didn’t support gay marriage, and she could  deny them service. The SCotUS just absolved her.

Google and Facebook are private companies, not government services.

It’s called being hoisted by your petard. The conservative right and libertarians created the situation where InfoWars could be banned.

And here we are.

As I said, nothing great was lost
