No matter what you may think of Alex Jones and his programs at Infowars and Prison Planet, you should be against censorship on the Internet or anywhere else. It has been reported that Google and YouTube have been censoring Infowars—possibly in retaliation for getting listeners to type in target words to make those words the number one search of the day.
Google probably loves Thomas Jefferson when it comes to separation of Church and state. I wonder if they are aware of his quote on censorship?
“No experiment can be more interesting than that we are trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first objective should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues of truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions.”
Jefferson knew the printing press as the latest Internet. There is no reason to believe, in light of this statement, that he did not envision that means of communications would advance. He suggests that all avenues of truth are to be left open and unhindered.
Search engines are there to provide links for information that people are seeking. That is all.
In order to protest censorship in all its nasty forms, I suggest this schedule of events for next week.
December 7th was the day that the United States entered WWII to fight against tyranny. That is what you are taught in public schools. Seems like the perfect day to start.
On December 7th, type in INFOWARS.COM or over-and-over as many times as you can in the morning in the Google search engine. If your work allows it, continue on your break and lunch time. Remember: DO NOT DO IT AT WORK UNLESS YOUR COMPANY POLICY ALLOWS.
On December 8th, type in PRISONPLANET.COM in Google over and over.
On December 9th, hit the YouTube search with INFOWARS and PRISON PLANET and the names of videos available at Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com. Do it as many times as you can. When Infowars videos come up after the search, click on them to start them, then do another search and continue as many times as you can. That will register hits on his videos.
Remember this is about censorship. Call and email your friends and ask them to do the same whether they like Alex Jones and his work or not.
The censorship may continue, but it will send a message, at least. The message that we are trying to send is that we support the First Amendment, abhor censorship in all its forms, especially the Internet, and we are tired of the mainstream media spin on the news.
If you do not want to do it for Alex Jones, then do it in support of Thomas Jefferson. Do it for the children.
