Big Tech has declared total war on Alex Jones and free speech just four months before the midterms.
Disqus banned Infowars, Prison Planet, Infowars Europe, Newswars and Alex Jones’s entire network of websites from using their comment system on Tuesday night.
Disqus sent Alex Jones a vague message saying they banned him for being “in violation” of their terms of service.
Jones has now been censored by Apple, Google, Facebook, Spotify, MailChimp and Microsoft’s LinkedIn, with the majority saying they banned him for his speech, which they call “hate.”
Here's where the "hate speech" argument falls flat.
They deleted Alex Jones from LinkedIn. LinkedIn! Unpersonned him 1984-style, Communist Chinese social credit score-style.
He uploaded zero content to LinkedIn.
This was a politically motivated, coordinated purge by Big Tech.

Donald Trump Jr. spoke out against the censorship on Tuesday:
Sorry. No data so far.
A Democrat Senator openly admitting that Big Tech's censorship campaign is really about purging all conservative media.

Famed video game designer Mark Kern also spoke out against the censorship:
Democrat Chris Murphy praised the banning of Infowars on Monday and said “the survival of our democracy” depends on Big Tech banning more websites:
Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it.

Wikileaks noted the timing coincided with Democrats threatening to regulate Big Tech into the poor house:
The suspiciously simultaneous censorship of Infowars by Google, Apple, Facebook came just one week after U.S. Senate intelligence committee hawk Mark Warner (D) circulated this policy paper threatening new regulation against those same media companies: https://t.co/8kLI1GAedM pic.twitter.com/Qdo0frJbPJ

The Democrats’ plan for internet censorship leaked last week and it showed they wanted to effectively eliminate all anonymity on the internet and make it extremely difficult for Big Tech sites to make a profit.
Despite the censorship, Infowars’ app hit #4 in the Apple App store on Tuesday:
CNN on Monday was pushing for the Infowars app to be banned:
Apple and Google are still selling the InfoWars app, which contains some of the same type of content that both tech giants have pulled from elsewhere on their platforms https://t.co/GjaCGPjcu5 pic.twitter.com/oDwVU9vneP
