In the news today on RT is the statement that Infowars has been banned from a group of social media sites for “hate speech”. Spotify, Facebook, YouTube and Apple. Despite something like 1.2 Billion views of his videos.
First off, I’m very much “put off” by the blatant antisemitism I’ve seen in comments on his blog. I’ve not read much of his stuff, nor watched more than one or two videos. I’m not endorsing him or his speech. I’ve generally found it far too “conspiracy theory” and under supported by evidence.
That said, I also firmly believe as Noam Chomsky put it, that freedom of speech is for speech you find reprehensible. If there is freedom of speech only for speech with which you agree, then there is no freedom of speech. Simply put: I find the whole idea of a special category of “hate speech” reprehensible. Like “hate crime”. (Show me the “love crime” that it is opposite…) ALL crime has an element of hate or dislike in it. Were the criminal empathetic with the victim they would not be doing the crime.
In the interest of real free speech, I’m putting up this pointer to where Infowars videos can now be found. It is simply the result of a web search on “bitchute infowars”. There may well be other sites too.
I hope BitChute can handle the sudden surge of demand that a billion view channel brings with it ;-)
Being based on a distributed Torrent design where things are shared Peer To Peer it ought to scale directly with use as every user adds to the capacity as both a consumer of the video and another peer sharing it.
