Big Tech’s coordinated purge of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and Infowars got another kick on Tuesday when the email marketing service provider MailChimp announced it would be banning the platforms from their service for “hate speech” — that vague and nebulous phrase social media companies have yet to fully define.
The Soros-funded Media Matters for America confirmed the Infowars purging from MailChimp just one day after Facebook, Youtube, and Apple issued a similar purge for spreading “hate speech.”
In their statement to Media Matters, MailChimp said they will no longer allow people onto their platform to “disseminate hateful content.”
“MailChimp doesn’t generally comment on individual users or accounts, but we’ll make an exception today,” the MailChimp statement read. “MailChimp notified Infowars that their accounts have been terminated for violating our Terms of Service, which make it clear that we don’t allow people to use our platform to disseminate hateful content.”
“The decision to terminate this account was thoughtfully considered and is in line with our company’s values,” MailChimp added.
