The banning of InfoWars chief Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple and Spotify is only one of many recent instances of tech giants and social media platforms censoring conservative voices, reports said.

One such voice is a woman running for Congress who detailed her family’s survival in Cambodia under the genocidal communist Khmer Rouge.

Jones wrote on Twitter, a platform he had yet to be banned from: “We’ve been banned completely on Facebook, Apple, & Spotify. What conservative news outlet will be next?”

These:

  • On Aug. 6, Twitter suspended the accounts of several Libertarian figures, including the Ron Paul Institute director.
  • Facebook banned a campaign video by California Republican congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng which highlighted communist crimes that led her family to flee Cambodia. On Aug. 7, Facebook reinstated Heng’s account. ““Upon further review, it is clear the video contains historical imagery relevant to the candidate’s story,” a spokesperson told The Washington Times.
  • British activist Tommy Robinson had his Instagram account temporarily banned.
