Internet Censorship by Facebook

Every year like clockwork there is just a little bit less Internet freedom
  • The Federal Government, and their partners in business, watch the Internet to make sure that incorrect political thought is properly recorded, filed away and at times deleted. 

I am not a huge conspiracy theory type, but you need to be blind or an idiot not to see bi-partisan Big Brother Government violating the Constitution and setting up a centralized Police State.

With the old lapdog media of newspapers and a few TV networks it was easy to control the flow of information to the public.  But with the explosion of Internet Blogs the public is being told about news that has long been suppressed.  The Elites are pissed and are looking for more ways to crackdown on freedom.

An October 29, 2012 article by Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars.com reports that Facebook removed one of Alex Jones’ political posts and temporarily denied access to the Facebook page until Jones agreed to acknowledge that Facebook’s terms had been violated.

The image of Osama Bin Laden with the words “Al-CIA-da” spelled out across his chest was clearly not copyrighted and Watson states Jones received the “We removed content you posted” message because it violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

Watson says there was also a secondary screen warning Jones that “other infringing images should be removed if the account was to remain in good standing.”

This isn’t the first time InfoWars.com content has been censored on Facebook, which advertises the fact that content posted on the site falls under public domain.

Just days after a release of the Freedom of Information Act documents indicating InfoWars.com was being closely monitored by Facebook and the DHS, Jones’ You Tube channel was censored and threatened with termination because he published a video criticizing You Tube’s copyright policy.

“The video, which You Tube labeled “spam, scams or commercially deceptive” was an InfoWars report on You Tube’s copyright policy which makes it legal for third parties to claim ownership of your voice and use your voice on their videos.”
“In this case, a music group named Biotronic used Jones’ voice in one of their video soundtracks, which implied ownership by You Tube standards. A You Tube bot then identified Jones’ voice on one of his own videos and flagged it for copyright violation.”

Jones’ currently has almost 300,000 subscribers to his You Tube channel and more than 244 million video views, yet even those numbers aren’t enough to save him from Google censorship. The Alex Jones Channel has repeatedly come under attack.
