It was only when people noticed the timeline of the announcement and the corresponding media reports that they got suspicious.
What happens when a First-Amendment-Protected ‘Free Press’ uses their monopoly powers to harass, silence and drive a hated rival out of business?
Yesterday, it finally happened. The formal closing of the Alex Jones Twitter account was finalized. This is exactly the outcome that CNN employee (among OTHER Democrats-with-press-passes have been trying to force for months).
Everything — they think — is going according to plan.
Let’s take a look at that plan and how Jones got banned before we dig into the juicy bit about the timeline. (Headers in bold will divide the sections if you’re already up to speed on Jones’s confrontation with Oliver Darcy.)
It’s entirely consistent with the ‘Civil War’ priorities of Twitter’s management team who praised an article calling to FORCE a cultural shift to the Left like we’ve seen in California.
It’s entirely consistent with the ‘battle-plan’ the left laid out for how to make sure a loss like 2016 never happened to them again. (The following is a link to their OWN document, in full.)
Putting the Squeeze on a Target
This tactic is right out of Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals
Freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Saul Alinsky’s 13th and final rule for radicals is “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy.
Isn’t that a fair description of how they treat anyone the Left and their activists in the Media(D) have decided to train their sights on?
Media voices from outlets who have themselves been discredited time and again for pushing propaganda dressed up to resemble news have been wanting sites like his to be shut down, and calls like this one helped put the pressure on Twitter to join the long list of digital companies who have been coerced to disassociate themselves from Jones and Infowars.
And it ‘just so happens’ that the straw that breaking the camel’s back and triggering the deleting of Alex Jones’ Twitter account was a verbal confrontation between Jones and the very CNN employee that has been actively campaigning — for months — to pressure the deletion of that very same account… Oliver Darcy.
Keep his name in mind as we break down what happened. It will feature prominently.
Alex Jones is called a lot of things. And even if we can agree that at least some of what he gets called by critics is accurate, ask yourself, does that give the media a right to silence someone they disagree with ideologically?
How Jones Got Banned From Twitter
Here is the confrontation that got Jones canned:
Twitter said Jones posted a video on Wednesday that violates the company’s policy against “abusive behavior.” That video showed Jones berating CNN journalist Oliver Darcy for some 10 minutes in between two congressional hearings on social media. Dorsey testified at both hearings, but did not appear to witness the confrontation.
Jones had about 900,000 followers on Twitter. Infowars had about 430,000. Jones did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone praised Twitter’s action in a tweet. “Glad Twitter is taking steps to put an end to the abusive behavior from Alex Jones & Infowars,” the tweet stated. “Tweets designed to threaten, belittle, demean and silence individuals have no place on this platform.”
That’s a strange rational given by Twitter considering you don’t see efforts to blacklist violent activist groups like Antifa, or open racists like Louis Farrakhan who (and even Snopes affirms this) called for followers to rise up and kill white men.
The Question of Media Conspiracy
The fact that news outlets reported that Twitter had axed Infowars and Alex Jones was not in itself, newsworthy.
As we have said, the question was the TIMELINE.
Notice the time stamps:
Oliver Darcy, the man who has been harassing Alex Jones and trying to literally destroy everything Jones has worked to build because Darcy doesn’t like how he exercises his free speech was confronted by Jones.
Wow. I honestly thought this was some conspiracy theory shit so I double checked. Yup. They were both tweeted at the same exact time.
So if i'm not mistaken, CNN reported on something that happened on Twitter before it even happened. https://t.co/yfgVnj1lNw

Before Twitter even announced it, the stories are in print.
And one of those stories was written by none other than Oliver Darcy.
Not only did he get to ‘report’ the news, but he got to ‘be’ the news, and he got to silence a news rival, with a little help from the tech giant he’s been lobbying / pressuring by way of social media to do exactly that.
And he’s not the only ‘news’ agency with that inside track on the silencing of Jones, a critic and rival. Again, note the time stamps

It makes one wonder which of their bitter rivals they’re going to ‘target and freeze’ next.
CNN — all the news that’s fit to flush.
Are you tired of the fake news that spews forth from CNN and the lame-stream media? Well, you don’t have to put up with their crap any more! Clash Daily is proud to release a very special brand of toilet paper!
Send to your liberal friends so that they can wipe their minds clear of the waste produced by the Communist News Network!
What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
