YouTube Backs Down After Putting InfoWars On Verge Of Deactivation

YouTube issued a second strike to Alex Jones’s main channel early Tuesday over a pair of videos related to the Florida school shooting – bringing it dangerously close to termination, however the second strike was removed hours later for unknown reasons.

 

The videos, “The Truth About Crisis Actors In The Florida Shooting,” and “What Is To Blame For The Florida High School Shooting” have been removed from YouTube, but can be seen here on the Infowars website.

While a second strike restricts a channel from posting new content for two weeks, a third strike can result in a ban from the platform.

“This is the second strike applied to your account within three months,” the notice reads. “As a result, you’re unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks. If there are no further issues, the ability to upload will be automatically restored after this two week period.”

Infowars has referred to the YouTube strikes as a “CNN lobbying campaign,” after CNN reported that they had “identified three similar YouTube videos from InfoWars” which they flagged to YouTube. A YouTube spokesperson responded at the time that those videos were under review.

The Alex Jones Channel, which has over 2.2 million subscribers, first came under fire over a video suggesting that a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, David Hogg, was coached and given lines for interviews with various media outlets following the Valentines Day massacre which left 17 dead.

The video was removed for a violation of YouTube’s “harassment and bullying” policy and the channel was issued a strike.

 

The video featured a clip of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg appearing to flub scripted lines – leading many to believe he has been coached on what to say as he tours around the country to promote an aggressive gun control agenda:

YouTube has all but scrubbed this clip of Hogg from its platform.

Earlier in the day, David Hogg shot off a barrage of tweets making fun of Alex Jones – which started off with Hogg telling Jones he wanted to [sic] “come on and clear some of this up because clearly as a shit journalist you can’t clearly

Jones accepted Hogg’s offer to have him on the show:

Three hours later, Hogg backpedaled, tweeting “I will not speak to anyone that has had disgusting remarks to victims of mass shootings in the past.”

Jones replied:

    This is about to escalate into something that these Tech companies like YouTube and Twitter are not going to want to see. The “internet” libertarians, which is the majority of real people that will make an impact, will backlash in a form that will make them wish they never started a censorship war. The internet was never made to be censored and we have tolerated these corporate companies playing in our space. If they don’t respect us then they will be erased and turned on MySpace style.

    Makes one wonder why would somebody as well known as AJ even want to be on Youtube and put up with all that hassle. Is it the advert revenue? Could he not get his own site and channel? There has to be more to this than can be seen.

    What is odd about AJones is that he never ever talks about who the main gun grabbers are and why it is ALWAYS the same suspects screeching, initiating legislations and organizing Lobbies and PACS on the Federal, State, and Local levels. Why is that?

    @Sarc, the amount of money that can be made when you have 2million+ subscribers on YouTube is enormous. That is why YouTube does everything it can to restrict that cash flow when it does not fit the official narrative.

    There is a synergy between Infowars and Youtube. The tension between the two drives more viewers to both. My guess is that this will be a back-and-forth love/hate relationship for years to come. Keeps competitors at bay.

    Twitter banned my three-year old profile two months ago. Didn’t fit their narrative as I was an outspoken conservative. I received a notice stating I had been banned for “threatening and hate speech”. When I, quite confused as I would never do anything of the kind, objected and asked to see the offending Tweet, they refused and instead sent me a link to their TOS. When I called them out on it again, simply requesting to see it, they sent me a “fuck you”. I could just imagine the little band of David Hogg-like pukers cackling with glee at their imagined power.

    With only a few hundreds followers, I didn’t have the power of an InfoWars to get noticed by the media, lol. There are a few class-action suits in the courts brought by more humble Twitter accounts. Good luck to them, I have moved on.
