Guardian Article Defending Censorship Says Conspiracy Theory Fueled First American Revolution

“…a good many people thought the British intended to enslave Americans”.

In defense of recent censorship of Alex Jones, the Guardian penned a lengthy article pushing various ideas on how to “fix” the spread of “conspiracy” theories.

Some of the “theories” cited are the that:

“…US was secretly trying to help the Islamic State…”

George Soros is “out to get” Hungary’s Prime minister

And, “an erroneous belief – say, that vaccines cause terrible side effects and autism”.

The piece goes on to say that,

“…theories have been around for a long time – in the lead-up to the revolutionary war, Miller says, a good many people thought the British intended to enslave Americans – they are spreading faster than ever thanks to the internet and social media. And once they spread, those ideas are often very hard to kill.”

The article summarizes by giving Alex Jones the finger, citing his recent banning from social media.

“Then there was the news on Monday that Apple, YouTube, Facebook and Spotify all but booted one of the most popular sources of conspiracies, Alex Jones, from their sites, suggesting that maybe something might start to change.”

So, now they are attacking our “conspiracy theory” embracing ancestors who fought for freedom?

  1. I think the underlying issue with the American colonies was that the people back then saw themselves as free born Englishmen and thus expected be treated as such. Not like some pagan subject in India or some Australian convict. Britain treated their colonists like second class citizens and we resented that.
