Hummm... no coverage of the ideals and principals that make up the American ideas of freedom...

This made me think of that famous Apple " think different" commercial. How ironic that the Apple Corp. is now right there leading the charge into 1984.

This concentrated paranoia coming from the tech industry is much more concerning than anything that might spill out of Alex Jones mouth. He's just one man and he does come with an off switch.

We aren't putting the massive dissemination of information in the hands of Alex Jones. We're putting it in the hands of an industry that seems to be proud of their fear of alternate thinking and their shared Schizophrenic tendency.

The tech industry is either showing signs of mental illness, or they're just a bunch of pansies.

I never listened to Alex Jones. Thank God I knew I had a choice.

Apple's "Think Different" ad campaign featured Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon, Muhammad Ali, Mahatma Gandhi, Joan Baez, the Dalai Lama, Jackie Robinson, Cesar Chavez, and Charlie Chaplin.

Apple's "Think Different" ad campaign did feature all of those people, which makes it ironic. All of those people challenged the status quo. Now Apple is the status quo.

That hammer that Apple and the tech industry is using isn't really meant for Alex Jones. He's just an easy target that gets us to clap for it like penguins

The real target is the next generation of all of those "Think Different" people who will be compared to Alex Jones and silenced, just as "Right Thinking" people were clapping for the silence of all that list in their day.

More interested that an 'anon' site boasts how many members it has from each company. Fascinating. Also, only know about the 'trucker speed salesblob' from Wonk so go figure.
