"PayPal is terminating its relationship with Alex Jones and his website, Infowars, the online payment service said Friday."

Damn, Jones' ship has been hitting some rough weather lately, and this news will only inflict added punishment where it really hurts, on his business vehicle for money and wealth.

SW no one listens to Alex Jones....I have never heard him say a word. He's out on the fringe for red necks and nitwits...

Alex Jones does have an audience, and he's been making money on them. Trust me, yet the world is getting tougher for him, so he needs to think about reinventing himself. Maybe he'll find Jesus.

Not that I really care about Alex Jones, but could you imagine if this was done to some lefty loon? Starbucks nation wide would be burning to the ground, and they would be muzzling everyone they don't agree with, like on university campuses.....hissy fits.

If this was about what Jones says or does, why not single out those much more vial than him also. I'm sure that's not too hard to find, what do you think? OR, is this just about singling him out and making an example of him?.....hissy fits.

Just listen to the crap that Morning Joe , CNN and The View spew on a daily basis. These people are sick and full of hate.

Were you searching for the word "vile", or did you really mean small pill bottle?

What you wing nuts don't realize is that the first amendment applies to the government. The relevant language:

Quote:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..."


It does not apply to corporations like PayPal. They are as free to restrict Alex Jones' sue of their services as Hobby Lobby is to restrict health care for their employees.

Sometimes you need to go beyond the talking points that are fed to you and think for yourselves. I donate money to the ACLU, which sues governmetns at various levels so they don't restrict free speech.

Not surprising that Nail pounder doesn't understand the difference between a typo and the wrong word. Not surprising that he got the first amendment wrong as well.

Not surprising you don't know how to use spell check.

i do not believe that nazis, kkk should have free public speech as i do not believe pedophiles should either or the russians on elections, as well as yelling fire in a movie theatre when there isn't one. .
