Welp, you knew it was coming. We all knew it was coming:
It's not just Alex Jones: YouTube's most extreme creators are pushing the platform into a tough debate and censorship and free speech on the internet. pic.twitter.com/ZhG8BRLfOT

We’ll say this much for you, Vox: You’re nothing if not predictable.
It took less than a day before it became “It’s not just Alex Jones…” https://t.co/m3rMeNlrRv

Man, you guys are the worst.

They’re certainly right up there. We’re not inclined to be sympathetic to Alex Jones, but using him to spread fear about “extreme creators” on YouTube doesn’t make us sympathetic to SJWs, either.
You know, there were a bunch of people, including me, that were like "Hey, banning Alex Jones from these platforms isn't a slippery slope."
Then Vox had to overreach. https://t.co/L06aZ2JD0S

Yep. Again, I don’t mind platforms creating and enforcing their own rules, but it shouldn’t be motivated by a media-inspired mob targeting publishers they don’t like. https://t.co/MFOnS9ocLV

Exactly. But Vox seems to think that the mob should play a significant role in dictating YouTube’s content.
It didn't take long for the authoritarian left to move the bar. Sooner or later everyone isn't of the left will be declared unacceptable by the left. https://t.co/uEqAvzvbh3
