Alex Jones and Infowars. You can love them or hate them. They’ve published more than 10,000 videos. And YouTube just deleted them all. Jones and his company were also kicked off Facebook and other giant social media platforms, all on the same day.
Why all of Jones' videos? Not all of them were controversial, let alone possibly breaking some rule or law.
Because Alex Jones is sometimes rude or wrong? We all are sometimes.
Because he promotes conspiracy theories? You mean like... Hillary Clinton's lie about Benghazi?
We still haven't been told the exact reason.
Plus, when we prosecute someone in court, we are suing them for an action they did. It’s not the very human being himself we oppose. Even after a public trial, with charges and testimony and a sentence — we don’t just make someone disappear. But that's in effect what happened to Alex Jones.
Even Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, expressed these same concerns yesterday, as I'll show you tonight.
But the purge of conservatives isn't over. The left-liberal website Vox is pretty mainstream — it’s actually partly owned by NBC, which poured $200 million into it. Tens of millions more from venture capitalists. Here's what they wrote today:

I can guarantee you that The Rebel Media itself is on a hit list, too — if our alumni and our friends are on one.
We’ll keep fighting. You know we will.
And if one day you simply stop seeing us — well, you know that it won’t be because we’ve decided not to fight.
It’s because, like Alex Jones, we’ve been de-personed...
