Communist China is now running Apple and determining what apps will be banned
During his Thursday broadcast, Infowars founder Alex Jones said that the communist Chinese government was pressuring Apple to drop the site’s extremely popular app from the App Store as demand for his brand rapidly increases.
Jones said that Apple was under pressure to remove the new “Infowars Official” app that allows users to access news, videos, and other information posted to the site as part of Beijing’s bid to tighten its grip on the American technology giant and control its data.
The move to pressure Apple to drop Jones’ app comes as the media mogul faces censorship and banning on other platforms. Facebook has banned Infowars’ page while Apple has already removed entire libraries of Jones’ podcast content from iTunes. Spotify has also dumped Jones’ content, and Mailchimp announced – uncharacteristically – this week it would no longer permit Jones to use its email marketing platform. YouTube has also banned Infowars content, as has Pinterest.
