Since Alex Jones was banned from Facebook, YouTube, Apple, Google Podcast, Spotify. TuneIn, Spreaker, iHeartRadio, Audioboom, Pinterest, MailChimp, Stitcher, Disqus, Sprout Social, and LinkedIn, a variety of conspiracy theories are springing up to explain and/or exploit the situation. The simplest version is simply that of the "liberal media" and "liberal silicon valley" attempting to silence conservative voices. When Vox did a video about YouTube's advertiser problem with "extreme creators", this was shared as an example of silencing conservatives. Here's the video - it's not directly advocating censoring all the people mentioned: Source: https://twitter.com/AmericanFerengi/status/1027198335835353089 Some typical replies: Source: https://twitter.com/MarkDice/status/1027106759087779840 Source: https://twitter.com/MLChristiansen/status/1027068945985986561 And a detailed response video from Stephen Crowder has this description: Obviously some spin from both side there. More extreme voices characterize it as a "Political Purge" Source: https://twitter.com/PrisonPlanet/status/1027162603418734592 Alex Jones himself says: https://www.infowars.com/the-list-platforms-that-have-banned-infowars-and-alex-jones/ Jones has recently being pushing a general anti-China conspiracy theory, claiming that the "global elite have sold us out" to the Chinese, and that Russiagate is just a distraction from "Chinagate", or "Globalgate". In his "Official Statement on the Internet Purge" he fleshes it out No doubt this situation will evolve with more spin and interesting conspiracy theories. I think though it might be important to keep an eye on the "Chinagate vs. Russiagate" theory that Jones is pushing. What's the evidence he uses to back this up? Does it hold up to scrutiny?
