On Friday, Elon Musk officially announced Info Wars host Alex Jones will not be allowed back on Twitter.
The news broke after Musk took to Twitter and wrote, “What should Twitter do next?”.
A user on Twitter quickly responded, “bring back Alex Jones.”
Musk quickly shot back, “No.”
Many free speech advocates on Twitter were upset about Musk’s decision and tweeted out their frustration.
On Saturday, Info Wars host Alex Jones provided a response to Elon Musk’s comment.
Jones told his audience that they shouldn’t blame Elon Musk for not restoring his Twitter account. Instead, they should show their support for Jones while they wait to see if Musk can really protect free speech.
Below is the transcript:
Elon Musk has the EU threatening him not to bring back Alex Jones and Donald Trump. He has DHS behind the scenes, with a bunch of moles inside his organization. There’s a question right now, on whether Twitter will even be able to continue on to the future because [of] all of the sabotage. So, as I said in the last month with this build up, I want to see Twitter freed overall first and to see if Musk can even get control of it, before we talk about Donald Trump or Alex Jones being brought back.
But at the end of the day, that doesn’t matter. I’ve built infowars.com. I’ve built our syndicated radio show and TV show that reaches tens of millions today. You’ve built it with your word of mouth, and we’re not going to sit there and hope that Elon Musk can free Twitter.
We’ve got Rumble. We’ve got Gab. We’ve got Gettr. We’ve got Telegram. We’ve got so many other great platforms, so we’re gonna continue to energize those and promote those and get those out to the world.
Just because there’s tyranny at Twitter and tyranny at Facebook and tyranny at Google and tyranny at Apple doesn’t mean we can’t build our own system. That’s the reason Joe Rogan went to Spotify when YouTube, owned by Google, was trying to censor a few years ago.
I understand why Musk did this. He’s got the ADL and the Democratic Party on him. He’s got the EU on him, trying to shut him down right now. So don’t put all your eggs in the Elon Musk basket, but support him trying to free up Twitter.
And don’t blame Musk at the end of the day because he didn’t bring me back. I’m the most controversial figure in the world because I’m the most threatening of the New World Order. So don’t expect him to bring me back [on] day one when he has first to get control of the platform before he can even think about that. But again, not to think about Musk. I can’t put my eggs in this basket.
My answer is that’s fine. Elon, just follow through on your promise to bring back some semblance of freedom to Twitter. Let’s see if you can actually get that done.
Watch the video below:

He says not expect so many drastic changes to happen on day one because of the pressure Twitter faces from government regulators, the EU and activist groups. pic.twitter.com/DubmbfgFza

On Sunday, Elon Musk accused Alex Jones of using the deaths of children for “gain, politics, or fame.”
The comment comes after one user asked Musk, “Is it time to let Alex Jones back on Twitter, Elon Musk? If not, why not?”
Elon Musk responded with a bible verse, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
Another user, Kim Dotcom, urged Elon Musk to consider restoring Alex Jones in the “interest of real free speech.”
Musk replied, “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.”
Kim Dotcom commented on Musk’s reply, “I can’t imagine how I would survive if that would happen to any of my children. I feel for you Elon. I agree that Alex hurt the Sandy Hook parents. That’s a stain of shame for the rest of his life. But Biden killed a family with 7 kids in a drone strike and he’s still on Twitter.”
The comments made by Elon Musk were met with mixed responses from Twitter users.
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.

A “free speech absolutist” platform would allow all evidence and arguments as a matter of principle, including those that question the narrative of a school shooting.
Currently you’re behaving hypocritically in one way or another.

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 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.

OJ Simpson was found innocent. He has a Twitter account. Path to redemption? Never say never?
Alex Jones screwed up. He’s paying for it, perhaps excessively. Here is an example from 2002 of his value: pic.twitter.com/6Uqwb1Z5jY

Elon, you are making the exact mistakes, that people have done before. Why not simply stick to the law, except you’re acting like a king now.

I’ve lost a child too, but you cannot put personal feelings above free speech or you are no better than those you are trying to save free speech from.
He didn’t kill those kids, yet he got more drama than the one that did AND the unprepared school.
Bad emotional response.

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
