Web Filtering Company Launches Purge of Libertarian, Conservative Media

Billion dollar software company places Infowars.com in same category as KKK

by Kit Daniels | Infowars.com | June 18, 2014

A corporate web filtering service is blocking access to Infowars.com by falsely claiming the site promotes racism and extreme violence in yet another example of the ongoing censorship of independent media.

Infowars received numerous e-mails yesterday from viewers who could no longer access Infowars.com , including the free audio streams of the Alex Jones Show, because their companies had blocked access to the site.

Upon investigation, it was determined that every company used Internet filtering software by Blue Coat Systems, which miscategorized Infowars.com as a “Violence/Hate/Racism” site, placing it in the same category as the Ku Klux Klan and a cockfighting league.

Blue Coat described their Violence/Hate/Racism category as “sites that depict extreme physical harm to people, animals or property, or that advocate or provide instructions on how to cause such harm.”

“Also includes sites that advocate, depict hostility or aggression toward, or denigrate an individual or group on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, ethnic origin, or other involuntary characteristics,” the description continues.“Includes content that glorifies self-mutilation or suicide.”

As it is very obvious that Infowars.com does not advocate racism or violence, the blacklisting of the site is simply covert censorship, textbook defamation and an act of war against public access to free information.

This is a severe misuse of technology that will only result in the complete disintegration of the Internet from the greatest pinnacle of expression humanity has ever seen to a completely sterilized, tightly controlled medium no different than corporate-run cable news which stagnates the human condition.

And Blue Coat even went beyond simple censorship by deceptively labeling Infowars.com as “racist” and “violent,” which only discourages what would be first-time viewers from visiting the site through unfiltered Internet access because they have been led to falsely believe that Infowars promotes violence and hate in complete opposition to the libertarian non-aggression principle.

Simply put, this is a technological iron curtain working against independent voices which are challenging the status quo and the establishment’s spin on world events.
