When people imagined a dystopian censorship surveillance state, they imagined a dashingly handsome Commun-Nazi with a killer stache staring down on them, forcing them to be moral and not fuck around all day chasing fancy cars, collecting diversity pets and pursuing gay sex.
But it turns out a weird aspy Jew with freckles is the new face of censorship and repression.
Most bans do not even involve humans – even if you consider the Pakis that Facebook outsources most of its work to to be humans. It is done by machine intelligence, based on keywords and the reporting patterns of content by users.
However with Mr. Jones… the situation was very different.
Very different indeed.
The situation was volatile enough that Mr. Zuckerberg got personally engaged, according to two people involved in Facebook’s handling of the accounts. He discussed Infowars at length with other executives, and mused privately about whether Mr. Jones — who once called Mr. Zuckerberg a “genetic-engineered psychopath” in a video — was purposefully trying to get kicked off the platform to gain attention, they said.
Alex Jones doing something ridiculous to gain attention? You’re out of your goddamn mind Zuckerberg. Completely off base here. You are the REAL fascist here, sir.
Mr. Zuckerberg, an engineer by training and temperament, has always preferred narrow process decisions to broad, subjective judgments. His evaluation of Infowars took the form of a series of technical policy questions. They included whether the mass-reporting of Infowars posts constituted coordinated “brigading,” a tactic common in online harassment campaigns.
Translation: BOOP BEEP BOOP BEEP.
Master Mold determined that Mr. Jones was indeed a brigadier.
Perhaps the greatest brigadier with whom the Book of Faces had ever tussled.
Late Sunday, Apple — which has often tried to stake out moral high ground on contentious debates — removed Infowars podcasts from iTunes. After seeing the news, Mr. Zuckerberg sent a note to his team confirming his own decision: the strikes against Infowars and Mr. Jones would count individually, and the pages would come down. The announcement arrived at 3 a.m. Pacific time.
So the NYT is just open about the fact that the Tech Oligarchs are coordinating speech-regulation conspiracies.
“Hey, Zuckerberg, I hear you’re banning Alex, I just wanted to call you up and tell you that I think that’s cool,” t. -Cook

Jk. Apparently Cook and Z-Berg hate each other. They’re like the Russian oligarchs in that sense, they all hate each other and are at each other’s throats, competing over who gets to screw over the goyim the hardest.
The mighty tech oligarchies: Facebook, Apple, Google and Spotify – FAGS for short – are actively conspiring against Infowars.
When it comes to SHUTTING IT DOWN, they’re all on the same page.
