We're talking Alex Jones here. Suplement-selling, gayfrog man that will tell you Obama is an alien lizard. You don't shut that kinda person down, you make fun of them.

Who even believes Alex Jones when he's talking about gayfrogs, memetrails or reptilians? People only believe him on very specific and isolates issues like state authority or political corruption. If they believe that much. Half of his appeal is based on memes.

Judging from how AJ & friends are wasting time on muh freedom-of-speech crying/whining (a la SJW) instead of instantly initiating Plan B, I think they really didn't expect this kind of situation.That means they didn't believe their own fear mongering hyperboles (globalist! censorship! satanists! it's a war!). It's ironic they ended up proving they are just scammy comedians and content creators (instead of legit nutcases) in a rather awkward way.

Not so bold prediction: Alex Jones will be propelled to an even higher level of meme god superstardom just in virtue of how Big Tech is absolutely clueless of it's own epidemic unfavorability numbers. In other words, Streisand Effect on steroids.
Or just disappear into obscurity and become a living urban legend.
For the vast majority of population, internet outside of SNS/YT/Google practically does not exist. I know he has a cult following but most people will just forget about him.

That's a good point. His actions/influences are rather unpredictable, I'm pretty sure even Jones himself didn't expect his own commercial success on the Trump train.

That's because, hilariously, Jones did the most accurate predicting during Trump's campaign.

Never underestimate the power of weaponized autism. I don't watch AJ or Infowars, but I would suspect they were already in a comfortable position to thrive without (anti)social media or Jewtube. Twitter already balked on doing anything to AJ's account due to the predictable PR blowback to Silicon Valley as a whole. I don't see why he would go away anytime soon; Big Tech needs him and his ilk as opposed to vice-versa.

Is Jones anything more than controlled opposition?

It could be because midterms are coming up and his channel has exploded since 2016.

Really surprised his twitter account is still up.
Could be? xD

You know the gay frog thing was real, right?


Edit: I hope this Barbara Streisands the fuck out of everything.

Who knows anymore? He's at least not totally sincere and, for all his conspiritard stuff, curiously pro Israel. Make of that what you will.

And that troublesome number will believe him even harder, now that the puppets of the alien gay lizardfrog Illuminati is trying to shut him down.
Autism attracts more autism. Sooner or later, an internet nobody will attract the exact kind of fans - and detractors - he deserves.
