Twitter users from all walks of life are rallying behind Alex Jones after CEO Elon Musk declared “no mercy” for the Infowars founder over Sandy Hook.
After being asked by author Sam Harris if Alex Jones can return to Twitter, Musk shot down the proposal with a quote from Jesus Christ, citing the Sandy Hook case.
Alex Jones Responds To Elon Musk’s Declaration Of War / Apparent Threat
“Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven,” Musk responded Sunday.

Internet entrepreneur Kim DotCom challenged Musk’s biblical explanation, noting that free speech should apply to everybody, not just those who Musk agrees with.
“Alex fucked up with Sandy Hook. He admitted that and apologized. He also got a lot of ‘conspiracy theories’ right. If serial liars like Biden and Trump are allowed on Twitter then Alex Jones should be allowed too. Please reconsider in the interest of real free speech.”
Musk responded by suggesting Jones’ controversial comments on Sandy Hook were unforgivable, despite Jones apologizing multiple times.
“My firstborn child died in my arms. I felt his last heartbeat,” he tweeted, adding, “I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.”
My firstborn child died in my arms. I felt his last heartbeat.
I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.

At this point, Twitter users far and wide came to the defense of Alex Jones and called out Musk’s flawed logic and hypocritical stance on free speech.
Alex Jones questioned the story surrounding the deaths of 20 children.
He’s never promoted a useless and unnecessary drug that’s potentially fatal for children. And has killed many. And will go on killing and injuring many more.
You did that.
So did Sam Harris.

I completely agree. But mainstream media does that every single time a tragedy happens in this country to push their political agenda before they even figure out who did the crime, what their motive was & what could have actually have prevented it.
They also start wars.

I’m sorry for your pain Mr. Musk. However, I spent 30 years in the military defending the right of free speech. I didn’t get to choose which speech I would defend. I disagree with Alex, most of the time but I will defend to my death, his right to say it. God Bless you sir. https://t.co/W9WG8R4O9G

I can’t imagine anything more tragic than that experience. 🙏
Mercy is not ours to give, only to receive by God, for all have sinned and fallen short of His glory.
If you can’t allow someone back who made a mistake based on that metric —then remove big gov, pharma, and media.

I’m sorry for the loss of your baby. That hits home for me, but the media narrative on this is incorrect. Ali Alexander explains how Alex Jones did NOT profit, seek fame or political influence from the comments he made. pic.twitter.com/ZgLAjsjR5I

With that standard you’d have to ban virtually every user who ever referenced a mass shooting at all since doing so almost always comes with a sociopolitical bent.

your story is heartbreaking but this is literally just confirmation that you’re making rules based on how *you* personally feel about things. “no mercy for” ok mr merciful billionaire god can you just run a website like 😭 there are war criminals on here
— shoe (@shoe0nhead) November 21, 2022
I think Alex Jones is a piece of shit but you are creating the @elonmusk policy.
You have world leaders with accounts who literally drop bombs on children and are refusing an arsehole who said stupid shit.

David Hogg has made a career out of this.

Sorry for you loss.
I would just like to provide perspective that all of us didn’t go through that. All we see is a man who made a mistake getting censored.

Alex Jones’ questioned what happened in Sandy Hook because he thought others were using the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame…
My heart goes out to you for your loss. But, with all due respect, freedom of speech is meant to protect the speech you disagree with.

Then will every politician that screams for gun control after every shooting get banned as well?
— Justine (@BruinJustine) November 21, 2022
By that logic you’d have to ban virtually every member of congress and the media when they stand on the graves of dead children to garner support for their political agendas or to raise money for their campaigns
— Nuance Bro (@NuanceBro) November 21, 2022
There are literal war criminals on this platform.

Why is @pfizer still online after knowingly allowing VIOX while it killed people?
What about those who died in their arms?
Pfizer paid a billion dollars in penalties, Jones hasn’t paid that much yet
— MagicSam (aka Fultz Force Five & Fat Jimmy) (@jj4t12win10) November 21, 2022
Sooooo, when do you start banning all the war criminals? You can start with Biden who, in addition to being a war criminal, also used the deaths of not one, but TWO of his own children for political gain.

Speak with AJ and get the real story of what transpired. It’s your company, but that discussion will be a lot different than what the news has reported. Your mutual friend @joerogan can set it up. People can be wrong and not always for malicious reasons. Opposite of WMD’s in Iraq
— Strong and Free 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 (@MJS1977) November 21, 2022
If that’s truly your standard then there are a whole host of other people you need to censor. They would include most of the United States congress and the presidents (present and former), who try to wield every school mass shooting tragedy for political gain.
— Isaiah Becker-Mayer (@ibeckermayer2) November 21, 2022
I’m sorry you had to go through that, and I understand the sentiment.
But being a free speech absolutist does not means free speech with the exception of _______.
You either are, or you aren’t.
— Gassquatch (@FartingBigfoot) November 21, 2022
That’s exactly what Alex Jones. Was passed off about – that govt was using real or perceived dead children as a tool to disarm Americans and consolidate power via false flag – when he realized the mistake he apologized – AJ is not one to step on the bodies of children for fame.
— INNERFACE (@innerface) November 21, 2022
Does that mean all the people who are pro-abortion are banned too?? They actually kill babies.. AJ is just a conspiracy theorist that I will block.. limits and rules are necessary, but if you make it personal, then it’s not really free speech… is it?

Alex Jones has apologised publicly several times over the years for what he said about Sandy Hook.
Many public figures have told more damaging lies, and more importantly, DONE objectively worse things.
Why is he unforgivable whilst others are forgiven, even without apology?
— ZUBY: (@ZubyMusic) November 21, 2022
You should talk to Alex instead of scapegoating him because this same logic can be applied to at least half of elected reps who use tragedies to push agenda items

In line with your tweet, how do you feel about this then? pic.twitter.com/RwMymJtuQg

Kim Dotcom then launched a poll asking users if Jones should be reinstated on Twitter, with 53.4% of the 75,000+ answering “Yes” as of this writing.
Reinstate Alex Jones on Twitter?

Alex Jones addressed Musk’s attacks on The Alex Jones Show Monday, claiming the new Twitter CEO is trying to get the rabid left off his back, but went too far by invoking Jesus Christ in justifying not allowing him back on the platform.
“[Musk] hit the panic button and attacked me so that he can get the left off his back. It’s fine to me that he did that, except he went too far comparing himself to Jesus,” Jones said.
Jones pointed out that the media has twisted the narrative so that only he is evil for simply questioning a mass shooting event.
“That’s what makes it outrageous for him to just go with the official line with Democrat Party-controlled judges that defaulted me and said I did all these things that I never did, and then I supposedly owe a $1.4 billion ruling of the judge and kangaroo jury, and then he’s just taking that at face value and saying I’m the worst person ever,” Jones said.
“He doesn’t know that they took out of context what I said ten years ago, doesn’t know I apologized before they ever sued me five years ago, but doesn’t accept the fact that they I owe $1.4 billion and that’s not enough?”
Jones also broke down the mind control behind the demonization of him and anyone who questions official narratives, like Communist China’s death camps, the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, or the experimental Covid shots:
“When you talk about slave camps and death camps, having their organs harvested and worked to death at Apple/Foxconn laboratories, that’s okay because Tim Cook’s gay and he wears a turtleneck and talks effeminately, but when Alex Jones questions a mass shooting while the rest of the internet does, then it’s the ultimate crime in history. And now all populists need their free speech taken and need to be punished.”
“It came out months ago, even years ago, how Homeland Security has been secretly meeting with Big Tech and big banks and big corporations with a group of leftist think tanks and watchdog groups who surveil what we say on the internet, and who decide who can speak and who can’t.”
“And one of things you get censored for is questioning the Afghan withdrawal, or questioning the poison shots, or questioning the stolen election, or questioning an open border, or questioning inflation.”
“This is the ruling class trying to silence us and trying to engage in such a criminal, organized fraud and legitimizing it by making it all about Alex Jones and how evil he is, and so legitimizing the entire process to be carried out and used against you and your family and your company or business.”
Jones also noted that actual war criminals and corrupt corporations can still enjoy Twitter access despite injuring thousands of individuals with the experimental Covid shot or drone striking innocent children.
“The other big elephant in the room are all the big dictators and mullahs and war criminals that all have their Twitter accounts because, ‘oh, they’re world leaders, we have to hear from them!’ Most of the UN Human Rights board is made up of dictators and despots but they’re all good, they’re all great people.”
“It’s only Alex Jones who questioned Sandy Hook, questioned Jussie Smollett, questioned WMDs in Iraq. It’s that terrible Alex Jones who’s been right 98% of the time, he’s got to be silenced so we can then point at everybody else…and say ‘you’re gonna be Alex Jones next if you question something or if you question how it’s been politicized, we’re not just going to silence you, we’re going to sue you and de-bank you, and then we’re going to misrepresent what you’ve said, then we’re going to say you’ve been defaulted then have a show trial where you’re already guilty.”
Jones concluded that Musk is a “fake” and a frontman for the corporate structure that’s waging a larger war on free speech.
“You’re already living in tyranny, this is all targeted at you. Elon Musk knows that and he’s playing both sides,” Jones said, adding, “Elon Musk really stepped in it, and the internet’s waking up big time.”
