I would think, possibly incorrectly, that people like Jones who are in media know the difference between the First Amendment and the concept of freedom of speech. The difference being government and companies regulating speech. Random assholes on the internet sometimes do not and that's the Infowars audience: idiots. They have this slippery slope argument with an end point being< "We can't start our own Twitter. No one will go there." The free market says, "For good reason." Jones & Co know it. Internet libertarians fail to see the flaw in their own argument or are willfully intellectually dishonest.

Sure you know all that. It's just kinda surreal to type it out because a minority of people are just that stupid.
