Even as Apple iTunes, Facebook, Twitter, and other tech giants coordinated to destroy the Alex Jones/InfoWars empire, all of them still support the racist, hate-filled garbage from Nation of Islam and its chief Louis Farrakhan.
On Monday, Apple announced that it would eliminate Alex Jones’ content on its iTunes service. The company claimed it was dumping Jones because of “hate speech” and his “inciting of violence.”
“Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users,” a spokesperson for the computer company said in a on Monday.
“Podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming. We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions,” Apple concluded.
Immediately on the heels of that decision, Facebook and YouTube also dumped all Alex Jones content.
But, even as these companies puff themselves up as quashing “hate speech,” all of them are still hosting the hate speech from Louis Farrakhan.
According to NTK Network:
However, consumers can still download the Nation of Islam (NOI) app in the Apple store, despite the group’s “deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has classified NOI as a hate group.
From the Apple app store:
The official Nation of Islam app features live and on-demand programs and events including inspirational and insightful messages from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Nation of Islam Student Ministers.
Stay up to date on news and events related to the Nation of Islam including announcements, statements, briefs, conference news and more.
On the NOI app, one can find dozens of webcasts featuring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an infamous hatemonger and anti-Semite.
As NTK reminds:
In the past, Farrakhan has called the Jewish people his “enemy,” “satanic,” and claimed the Jewish people are responsible for “filth and degenerate behavior,” while also praising Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.”
And that is just a tiny sliver of the hate Farrakhan has disgorged on the Internet.
Yet, all these pious tech giants who want to congratulate themselves for being so high minded are still hosting Farrakhan.
If this isn’t proof that the left is only interested in quashing center right opinions, nothing is.
