Apple removes Alex Jones and Infowars podcast from iTunes


#241

Holy crap. Not even trying to disguise it.


#242

This can’t be real, you’re pulling my leg.


#243

Ouch.

But, you are right.


#244

Good Lord, he’s going to blow out an O ring. :rofl::laughing::rofl:


#245

Mostly libs … as far as I can tell. They are the ones always talking about him.


#246

So I can take that cartoon now and say “Look what MoleUK posted”. Ron Paul had that cartoon for the same reason you do… to illustrate racism. It was inadvertently posted by a staffer as though he was a proponent of the message… which he isn’t…

So why did you not tell the people here that?


#247

This annoys me. Freedom of speech is more than just trite legalism. People retreat into peddling this garbage when they either like the censorship taking place or when they don’t want to discuss the topic.


#248

Good news.


#249

Are you saying it was used in that tweet to illustrate racism?


#250

It’s terrible news. InfoWars is my favorite comedy podcast.


#251

I said what I said.


#252

Keep thinking that, but you’re wrong. To put it simply, there have been posts removed here because the mods felt they were objectionable. Same applies to Facebook, YouTube and Spotify. Not to mention you sign an agreement when you come on board any online site telling you to play by their rules. Your speech isn’t being infringed in their view, and according to their rules, they’re not. You may feel differently, but it’s their rules.

I wish a mod would comment on how this discussion relates to this board.


#253

I’m asking you to clarify.


#254

No agreement is signed when someone uses a website. They don’t need a ToS to boot someone off.


#255

What does that mean?


#256

Yup. Here’s the TOS for Twitter:

YOUR ACCESS TO ANY IHEARTMEDIA SITE MAY BE TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY IN IHEARTMEDIA’S SOLE DISCRETION, WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE, IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLY WITH ANY PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR ANY APPLICABLE ADDITIONAL TERMS, OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON, OR NO REASON.

… my bad that’s actually for this forum.


#257

He is saying that this will be the beginning of the end for Facebook, YouTube, and Apple.

:rofl::rofl::rofl:

I mean, really. He thinks that this will kill Apple, the company with a $1,000,000,000,000 market capitalization, the company that already exercises Sovietesque control over the devices it has manufactured?

:rofl:


#258

He is at fault for that, but I really do not think he is a racist.


#259

Whoa!!! Down, Sparky.


#260

Yeah just a hunch but I bet this guy supports the homophobic bakery.
