As I posted this morning, Alex Jones and InfoWars were unceremoniously deplatformed in a coordinated, cross-corporate attack that saw almost every major Silicon Valley player ban the right-wing conspiracy theorist from their respective services. Already, YouTubers of all stripes are coming out to defend Jones—if not the substance of his content, then his right to be heard.
YouTuber Razorfist released a video last night (below; warning: foul language) in which he argued that this attack makes Jones a martyr; all too true. Here is the video (again, video contains foul language and may not be safe/appropriate for work):
Follow your conscious. You don’t have to support Alex Jones’s content just because he was deplatformed, but all conservatives should be defending his ability to put his message out there. After all, if it’s just nutty kookery, then submitting it to the light of day will expose its cracks.
