It’s Monday in ‘Murica and Karma came around to bite a hater in his over-substantial ass! This started out as a bad day for Mama Jones’ little pumpkin, Alex. Then it proceeded to get worse and worse and worse and the day isn’t over yet.
While story mining this morning, I came by a little tidbit about Apple dumping all but one of Jones’ Itunes podcasts down the old flush hole. (What surprised me about this is that I never thought there was even one worth saving.)
As Apple put it,
Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users Podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming. We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions.
After reading that, my first thought was, “It took them too damn long to finally live up to their own guidelines!”
Spotify had already dropped several of Jones’ offending podcasts.
As they explained it in an email,
We take reports of hate content seriously and review any podcast episode or song that is flagged by our community. Spotify can confirm it has removed specific episodes of The Alex Jones Show podcast for violating our hate content policy.
Then, the bad day continued when along came FaceBook!
They removed four of Alex’s pages for breaking Community Standards! Not the “Fake New”s Community Standards, rather the “Hate Speech” Community Standards,
…for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.
For all of FB’s vaunted algorithms to catch problems like this, they were forced into this because of the mountain of complaints. So, no glory for them either.
Next up: more bad day! YouTube removed The Alex Jones Channel.
When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts.
Of course all this has our boy Alex in a whiny mood. In messages to the Washington Post, he complained that this was “a counter-strike against the global awakening.”
He said Google, Apple, Main Stream News, Democrats, some Republicans, and the Chinese government were ganging up on him and cutting his connections with his Bubba Tudum base.
We’ve seen a giant yellow journalism campaign with thousands and thousands of articles for weeks, for months misrepresenting what I’ve said and done to set the precedent to de-platform me before Big Tech and the Democratic Party as well as some Republican establishment types move against the First Amendment in this country as we know it.
You’re on the wrong side of history mainstream media You sold the country out, and now you’re going to pay for it
p.s.: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”) you might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it. I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).
