Facebook and other tech giants permanently BAN InfoWars in what has been dubbed the Great Censorship Purge.

The Great Censorship Purge has begun. Facebook has permanently banned InfoWars for the broad and ambiguous crime of ‘hate speech.’ Apple also reportedly wiped iTunes and its podcasting app clean of content by Alex Jones, following similar moves by Youtube and Spotify.

“It’s a coordinated purge,” Paul Joseph Watson said. “This is a total abuse of power.” “Whether you love or loathe Infowars, this now confirms that Big Tech is working with legacy media to silence independent media. In places like Russia, the government shuts down the press, in America, CNN, Apple and Facebook fulfill that role.”

Watson revealed Facebook banned InfoWars “for unspecified ‘hate speech,” saying: “They didn’t even tell us what the offending posts were. This sets a chilling precedent for free speech. To all other conservative news outlets – you are next. The great censorship purge has truly begun.”

Apple similarly accused InfoWars of violating hate speech guidelines. In a statement to The Washington Post, an Apple spokesperson said they do not tolerate “hate speech,” claiming: “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.”

Allum Bokhari senior tech correspondent at Breitbart urged people to write to their representatives, saying: “There was a time when people would defend each others’ right to free speech despite disagreements. This is not one of those times. If Republicans and the Trump movement doesn’t make this into an issue, no-one will.”
