Brazen political censorship: All four tech giants ban pro-Trump website

Coincidence or blatant collusion? Curiously Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google-owned YouTube all decided to ban an American conservative website from the internet on the same day.

Published: August 6, 2018, 10:32 pm

    In an act of pure polictical censorship, all four megacorporations banned an online pro-Trump website Infowars within the space of 12 hours. Incidentally, all four also control the vast majority of the world’s internet traffic.

    Together, these four companies boast a combined net worth of over $2 trillion.

    The ban prompted Nigel Farage to question the commitment of the four tech giants to free speech. “What price free speech?” Farage tweeted. He said Infowars was undeniably the victim of collusion by the big tech giants.

    A contributor to Infowars said the combined action by the four companies was more proof that their terms of service were arbitrary despite Facebook claiming that Infowars was “unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes”.

    It claimed that reports had been received of Facebook’s “hate speech policies” being violated. “More content from the same Pages has been reported to us — upon review, we have taken it down 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.”

    Apple claimed in its statement that it “does not tolerate hate speech” and while it believes in “representing a wide range of views”, opinions other than their own ought to be “respectful”.

    YouTube stated that the Infowars account had been “terminated for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines” and Spotify banned the website, citing “hate content”.
