Yep, it's beyond overkill: "... you can’t even mention the site [Infowars.com] on two of the biggest tech platforms unless you condemn it."

Alex Jones’ Infowars was already banned from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Now you can’t even mention the site on two of the biggest tech platforms unless you condemn it. This is an explicit and blatant steering of political debate. It goes beyond banning and into the territory of Orwellian oppression. [Source]

I've disagreed with plenty of what Alex Jones has said but not everything. I'm not going to agree to a blanket condemnation of everything on Infowars.com. Part of what's been good about Infowars is that it has sharpened skills at figuring out exactly what's BS and what has merit.

As far as I remember, I was the first person I know of who said that Alex Jones never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like. I certainly wasn't suggesting that he's been wrong about every conspiracy. As the old saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

If I get banned for it, I couldn't care less. I only started posting to both Facebook and Twitter again to get banned for truth telling. If they ban truth telling, they'll fall completely. I don't need them. They need me.
