You are as loony as Jones.
The guy has admitted he is playing a part he is an actor it is a fiction show.
Good thing the government is not involved here, right? I hope that you understand the difference, if not then please read the 1st amendment again.

I don't care what anyone says, sensoring is gov controlling the narrative. I am not an Info Wars fan but the sensoring going on is getting out of hand.

Google and youtube are a corporation, a private business. They have every right to run their business any way they see fit.
I sure am glad there are some here on ATS with critical thinking skills, although by the look at the number of stars given it doesn't seem to be very popular.

Having read this, the following can be stated:
If a private organization bans a certain type of speech, is it censorship?
This very thing has been hashed out numerous times here on ATS. I don't remember which side of the political spectrum the arguments came from, left or right, perhaps both.
There are organizations that ban types of speech on a regular basis, as part of policy. Some jobs, review employee social media, and have terminated said employees for postings.
Nor while they are on base and it doesn't matter if you're military or civilian.
The US military bans its member from exercising that freedom of speech in some cases, members can't participate in protests or political rallies in uniform.

Don't forget Gab (replaces Twitter), SteemIt with D-Tube too.
Censorship is as old as printed news. Not all stories make it to print nor does the whole story, much is censored out for brevity among other reasons.

The bottom line here is that the censorship started Long before now and many have been taken down already. You think Infowars is the beginning? It isn't...
Pray tell where the assault on the 1st is here.
To blame Alex Jones for the assault on the first amendment is a ridiculous train of thought.
I totally agree with you here, it never ceases to amaze me.
I'm baffled by some of the crap I read here.
This is exactly how censorship is defined. It is not solely about the free flow of ideas but about censoring obscene or offensive material, among other reasons. And, again, as the website owner you would have every right to censor this material.
If I had a website catering to the making of soft toys for children under the age of 5, I would not allow photos of gay men having sex with dead alligators.
That's not censorship.
