Good news for humans everywhere! Conspiracy theorist, fake-news spreader and all-around nut-job, Alex Jones, has had his content removed from Facebook.  Facebook said today that it has booted four Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from its platform.

Last week, Facebook removed four videos from Jones-affiliated pages and then blocked him for 30 days.  Other administrators were able to continue to post on the pages during this block.  Today, however, Facebook took it a step further and removed the pages completely.  The move was in response to receiving reports of community standards violations, meaning the pages violated “Facebook’s policies on graphic violence and hate speech”.

The company stated, “While much of the discussion around Infowars has been related to false news, which is a serious issue that we are working to address by demoting links marked wrong by fact checkers and suggesting additional content, none of the violations that spurred today’s removals were related to this.”

Removed content includes The Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page.

 

Several other platforms have also banned Alex Jones’ content, including Apple, Spotify and YouTube, which have identified the content as hate speech.

For all those who wished this guy did not have a platform to spew his hatred, YOUR WISH HAS BEEN GRANTED!!

One great small victory, which is also huge.
