Charlottesville witness slandered by the alt-right brigade files lawsuit against Alex Jones, Infowars, Gateway Pundit and more, and he has no plans to settle - https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ale...72b4bf22da

I hope he bankrupts all of them.

In addition to that Charlottesville witness, two Sandy Hook parents have just filed defamation lawsuits against Jones:

More like Alex Jones-adjacent, but Mike Cernovich seems to be backing away from Trump on Twitter and going full-force on mysticism:

https://news.avclub.com/mike-cernovich-i...1825321773

Quote:So, the guy sucks. But recently, Cernovich has made an ideological pivot that may have surprised even his most devoted fans. We don’t know whether he could sense the coming changes in the political winds or if his “gorilla mind” supplements have truly started to rot his brain but, as Buzzfeed news director Ryan Broderick pointed out on Twitter, Mike Cernovich is now deep into mysticism.

As The Daily Dot points out, yesterday in one of his characteristic interminable livestreams, Cernovich promised “less politics, more philosophy” to his devoted viewers. Apparently this awakening came about through some extremely deep-thinking about 2018's favorite buzzword: “blockchain.” Per Daily Dot: 

“We’re moving from a centralized understanding of the world to a decentralized understanding of the world,” he said. “The blockchain is a distributed network that solves all the problems that we have of finance but more broadly it’s like a philosophy it’s a way of life… We’re going toward a decentralized consciousness, do you understand? That’s what blockchain is.”

Bitcoin as religion?

Sure why not. Just another day in the Insanity Dimension.

Apparently, Alex Jones said Anthony Bourdain's death was actually a murder committed by globalists who knew he planned to come out as a Trump supporter.

Yeah, I got nothing.

Hope Bourdain's family sues his balls off.

Just saw something similar, only it was because he was about to expose an elite pedophile ring connected to the Clintons, of course. Funny how these freaks always seem to connect this stuff back to child sex. Almost like they're obsessed with it, or something!

Bourdain had friends everywhere. Jones better not plan on travelling any time soon.

I’ll set the over/under on the percentage of his base that can separate the American Revolution from the Civil war at 25%, and I think that’s generous.

Dearest wife,
Quick thinking saved my platoon today from the Red Hats as we erected a barrier out of Hillary’s e-mails, since they still can’t seem to get over them. War is Hell.

Dear General,

I bring you good news from the front.

Last week we marched into Bowling Green backwards while telling the Red Hats we were leaving. Our troops have since taken Louisville, Lexington and Memphis using the same method.

Victory is imminent.

Dearest Leandra

The Red Hats have bested us with pollution from their American branded but foreign made trucks.

Fear not, we replaced their cookout burgers with veggie burgers and now they're distraught with their newfound homosexuality.

Yeah, it's shit like this that gets downright infuriating.  This "gray area" where he can easily fall back on either "I was just trying to warn people so they'd be safe!" or providing some context from his show where he likely made some kind of half-assed ameliorating statement amidst the rallying cry.


And because it's not directed at any particular individual defamation is virtually impossible, unless you can prove someone attacked you yesterday because they thought you were a liberal insurrectionist courtesy of Alex Jones.

At a Facebook event about combating fake news, the company had a hard time explaining InfoWars' presence on its site:

https://money.cnn.com/2018/07/11/media/f...index.html

Quote:Facebook officials struggled on Wednesday to explain why it permits InfoWars, a media organization that is one of the world's leading purveyors of conspiracy theories, to have a page on its platform.

The company's failure to produce a satisfactory answer on the matter came at an event Facebook organized in its Manhattan offices where the company aimed to tout its commitment to combating fake news and misinformation. 

After a short presentation showcasing Facebook's efforts to fight misinformation, John Hegeman, the head of Facebook's News Feed, and Sara Su, a Facebook product specialist for News Feed, took questions from reporters. 

When asked by this reporter how the company could claim it was serious about tackling the problem of misinformation online while simultaneously allowing InfoWars to maintain a page with nearly one million followers on its website, Hegeman said that the company does not "take down false news." 

"I guess just for being false that doesn't violate the community standards," Hegeman said, explaining that InfoWars has "not violated something that would result in them being taken down." 

Hegeman added, "I think part of the fundamental thing here is that we created Facebook to be a place where different people can have a voice. And different publishers have very different points of view." 

I can't personally say I've had much InfoWars exposure on Facebook, but I do get lots of conservative/libertarian video recommendations on YouTube.  That seems to be a trend, in general.  It's odd for me since I surprisingly use YouTube very little for anything political.  I watch music videos, movie clips, etc.  And, yet, YouTube thinks I need to know what some random conservative said about women this week, or find out what Ben Shapiro thought about the latest Star Wars films.

Veronique De La Rosa and Leonard Pozner have relocated seven times after their son, Noah, was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School because Alex Jones' fanatics keep finding and threatening them.  As you might imagine, it's been awhile since they've had opportunities to visit Noah's grave.  Their day in court is coming, but Jones is seeking over $100,000 in court costs from them:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/po...ytpolitics

Quote:In the five years since Noah Pozner was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., death threats and online harassment have forced his parents, Veronique De La Rosa and Leonard Pozner, to relocate seven times. They now live in a high-security community hundreds of miles from where their 6-year-old is buried.

“I would love to go see my son’s grave and I don’t get to do that, but we made the right decision,” Ms. De La Rosa said in a recent interview. Each time they have moved, online fabulists stalking the family have published their whereabouts.

“With the speed of light,” she said. “They have their own community, and they have the ear of some very powerful people.”

On Wednesday in an Austin courtroom, the struggle of the Sandy Hook families to hold to account Alex Jones, a powerful leader of this online community, will reach a crossroads. Lawyers for Noah Pozner’s parents will seek to convince a Texas judge that they — and by extension the families of eight other victims in the 2012 shooting that killed 20 first graders and six adults — have a valid defamation claim against Mr. Jones, whose Austin-based Infowars media operation spread false claims that the shooting was an elaborate hoax.

The Pozner hearing is a bellwether in three cases, including another in Texas and one in Connecticut, filed by relatives of nine Sandy Hook victims. It comes as the social media platforms Mr. Jones relies upon to spread incendiary claims initiate efforts to curb him.

The day after the Pozner case, in the same courthouse, is a hearing in a separate defamation case against Mr. Jones brought by Marcel Fontaine, who was falsely identified on Infowars’ website as the gunman in the Parkland, Fla., school shooting in February. Mr. Fontaine, who lives in Massachusetts, has never visited Florida. The Pozner family and Mr. Fontaine are being represented by Mark Bankston of Farrar & Ball, a law firm based in Houston.

Mr. Jones is trying to have the Pozner and Fontaine cases dismissed under the Texas Citizens Participation Act, which protects citizens’ right to free speech against plaintiffs who aim to silence them through costly litigation. Mr. Jones is seeking more than $100,000 in court costs from the Pozner family. Efforts to reach Mr. Jones on his cellphone and through the Infowars email were unsuccessful. Mark Enoch, his lawyer in the case, did not respond to telephone and email requests for comment.

Every time I hear about Alex 'Eli' Jones and these Sandy Hook families, I am reminded of the end of 'There Will Be Blood'.

I'm hoping that he loses this case and that it absolutely ruins him financially. This lummox needs to go.

It's possible to retrain Youtube's algorithm so that it stops recommending crap like that.  That's how I got it to stop recommending movie and game reviews from people who use the term "SJW" unironically.

   

From the front page, click on the three dots that appear when you mouse over the title of the unwanted video.  A drop down menu will appear.

   

On the drop-down menu, select "not interested."

   

You'll see a confirmation that you won't have that video in your recommendations again. 

To further separate videos you've already seen from videos whose creators you don't want in your recommendations, select "Tell Us Why."

   

If you tell Youtube that you're not interested in that channel, it'll also stop recommending channels like the one you're removing from your feed.

It might take a couple of removals before your Youtube recommendations get cleaned up, but you'll notice the results before too long.  It's been MONTHS since Youtube recommended a video complaining about all the women in Star Wars to me.

Several episodes of Jones' podcast have been removed from Spotify, in response to pressure from Twitter users for Spotify to enforce its stated policy on hate speech.

Well let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Has Codename punched a lot of people in the face? How are you with punching Codename? I know that I haven't and my punch would probably be a pretty disappointing one. I nominate Floyd Mayweather to punch Alex Jones in the face.

Doesn't this giant forehead just sell his own snake oil supplements on his paranoiac podcast? Does Spotify think they're really going to lose their ass in ad revenue if they dump this tub of hot dog water?
