Twitter Bans Alex Jones, InfoWars

Sen. Marco Rubio got into a spat with personality Alex Jones on Wednesday

Jones said Rubio wanted to have him arrested. "Thank God Trump is".

In early August, Facebook and YouTube banned Jones and Infowars from their platforms, sending traffic to the website tumbling.

The companies said Jones had an engaged in hate speech and contributed to the harassment of users. He called Rubio a "frat boy" and mocked his laugh. "I'll take care of you myself", Rubio said. "I'm asking you not to touch me", Rubio told Jones. Marco Rubio Wednesday, causing the Senator to tell Jones that he would "take care" of him if need be.

Infowars' Alex Jones repeatedly heckled Sen.

Things got even more tense when Jones put his hand on Rubio's shoulder, prompting a blunt reply from the one-time Presidential hopeful.

"Oh, you're gonna beat me up?"

Boorstin pointed out that Jones was attending a hearing about election interference, and it was not about his fight with technology companies.

Ahead of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday, Jones confronted CNN's Oliver Darcy outside the hearing room, accusing the reporter of leading a campaign to purge Infowars from the Internet.

"You are literally like a little gangster thug", he said.

"You're not going to get arrested". "The Democrats are raping the Republicans". However, according to a report by The Daily Beast, Twitter confirmed that one of the videos that violated its policy was an InfoWars video posted to Jones' Twitter account. Sure, Jones has a significant weight advantage over Rubio, but he's also terrified of gay frogs.

Jones, who had already made headlines that morning with his appearance at the hearing, interrupted Rubio to, as he put it, "face his accusers".

Rubio eventually ended the gaggle to return to committee, leaving the reporters to "talk to this clown".

Last month, Twitter gave Jones a small punishment for his inflammatory behavior on the platform-a one-week suspension that prevented Jones from tweeting or retweeting from his personal account.

After further pressuring, the firm suspended Jones from Twitter for a week in August.
