Alex Jones Applauds Musk For Reinstating Him, Warns The ‘Establishment’ Will ‘Come After Him’




Infowars founder Alex Jones applauded billionaire Elon Musk on Sunday for reinstating him to X (formerly Twitter), but gave a sharp warning that “big establishment sponsors” will “come after him.”

Jones was reinstated on the social media platform Saturday night following a Twitter poll asking users if they would want the Infowars founder back on the site. After almost 2 million votes, results showed that 70.1% of responders wanted Jones back on.

The Infowars founder joined his first Twitter space Sunday afternoon to discuss his thoughts on how it feels to be back on the platform since being banned in 2018 for alleged abusive behavior. When asked if he believed that Musk would possibly receive backlash for reinstating him, Jones stated that while it might “monetarily” hurt the platform, Musk is a “rebel.”

“Well, I think you said that yesterday … But he basically said it’s the right thing to do because the principle and it’s also what the majority of the vote said. So this probably will hurt X monetarily but ‘justice be done, may the heavens fall’ basically,” Jones stated. “But at the end of the day, it already has way more traffic and way more people — it’s avant-garde, it’s revolutionary, it’s rebel, it’s Maverick.”

It should be evident to all - that it's still a free country and if we permit jerks like Howard Stern to broadcast for 40 years, everyone ought to have that freedom.

I'm not a fan of Jones, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if the left tries to make a huge stink over this and attempts to tarnish Musk over it.

Oh of course the left will ... keening and wailing

The Anti Semitic accusation did not stick too hard and Musk clarified his point in a follow up tweet

FREEDOM is when someone you don't like has the right to say what they want.
OPPRESSION is when someone is denied their right to say what they want.

Oh, the person denied the right might - today - be someone you like, but sooner or later, it will be someone you agree with, and their voice will be silenced. And you MIGHT find yourself in a situation where you wish - damn, if we only had LAWS to keep people from shutting others up.

THIS - is why we make laws - so that rights and freedom are not subject to the whims of a party or a single executive. So you can't have a mayor - or governor - or President - or God help us all, a mob or social media - singularly DECIDE what should be said -

Indeed, but as you know this is what the Progressives want to change, they ' feel ' and are offended so they demands changes to protect feelings not being exposed to speech that offends them

Again - AGAIN, returns to the "politics is religion" - political opinions are dogma - all issues have a single solution and we have the only right one -

Just as a religious leader feels the right to silence dissent as infidelity or treason - so the left does. Hence, it's ok to silence "wrong" ideas.

I've been around religious leaders who think this way - they may appear pleasant, but make no mistake, they will never tolerate dissent - or even light-hearted ridicule. Sooner or later, they will address it as dissension within the ranks. And they have NO PROBLEM whatsoever in utterly reversing an opinion which two minutes ago was set in stone. If they have an opinion on a Scripture and other leaders concur - it's the right one, you have a right to yours but keep it to yourself.
