Alex Jones is begging teenage Parkland survivor David Hogg to keep him on YouTube
InfoWars host Alex Jones has begged Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg to keep him on YouTube.
The conspiracy theorist has repeatedly questioned the details of the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, which left 17 dead.
This has led YouTube to give InfoWars two strikes over the past two weeks for promoting conspiracy theories about the shooting and its survivors.
Last week, the site removed Jones’ video, titled “David Hogg Can’t Remember His Lines In TV Interview”, and gave InfoWars its first strike.
Yesterday, YouTube contacted the channel to state that its videos “What Is To Blame For The Florida High School Shooting?” and “The Trust About Crisis Actors In The Florida Shooting” had also been removed.
In a message posted by InfoWars, YouTube wrote: “This is the second strike applied to your account within three months. As a result, you’re unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks.”
According to the site’s guidelines, another strike in the next two-and-a-half months will see InfoWars banned from YouTube, where it has 2.2 million subscribers.
Jones, a fringe fantasist who interviewed President Donald Trump shortly after he was elected, claimed that butch lesbians were predisposed to domestic violence and eating brains last month.
And just a few weeks ago, he accused trans rights activists – who he said were mentally ill – of creating cyborgs to destroy civilisation.
Jones has been attacking the outspoken Parkland teens in much the same way, asking whether the students were “coached”.
The day after the shooting, he hosted an InfoWars video called: “Evidence Unraveling A Giant False Flag At Florida High School Shooting”.
