"When users violate these policies repeatedly, like our policies against hate speech and harassment or our terms prohibiting circumvention of our enforcement measures, we terminate their accounts".

Those have been pulled from the iTunes directory, making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming.

In the latest clash between big tech companies and those who hold unpopular or controversial views, Facebook has permanently kicked "Infowars" off of its platform, saying the page was "unpublished for using hate speech".

Last week Spotify removed several episodes of "The Alex Jones Show", following similar moves by YouTube and Facebook the week before. "It's not just a slippery slope, it's a risky cliff that these social media companies are jumping off to satisfy CNN and other liberal outlets".

"In an unsurprising turn of events, InfoWars did not heed the warning and continued to post violent content; Facebook chose to act because Jones's pages had "[accumulated] too many strikes".

The InfoWars founder is infamous for peddling far-right conspiracy theories, including his promotion of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting as being a false flag attack perpetrated by the government.

Facebook said the page administrators would be able to appeal its decision.

The development comes amid a crackdown on the broadcaster's material by online platforms - like Facebook - which have removed some of his content.

It's been a rough day for Alex Jones and InfoWars. All four companies stated that Jones' inflammatory statements about Muslims, immigrants, members of the LGBT community, and other groups violated their terms of service. There are plenty of conservative & liberal podcasts that don't harass the parents of children killed at Sandy Hook or Las Vegas shooting victims.

But in a message posted Monday on Twitter, Jones encouraged users to access live streams directly from the InfoWars website.

For its part, Apple removed most of Jones' podcasts, AFP confirmed, after the action was initially reported by Buzzfeed news. On Monday morning, Facebook announced that they had removed four of Jones' pages after multiple warnings to him to follow their guidelines.

And last week Spotify, the music streaming service, said said on Wednesday that it has removed some episodes of "The Alex Jones Show" podcast, which airs on Inforwars, for violating its "hate content policy", following backlash on social media. It also suspended the personal profile of Jones.

Paul Joseph Watson, an editor-at-large for Infowars, said on Twitter that Facebook's move was "political censorship" and "a culture war".

Facebook said the removal of Jones' pages were not due to fake news but were in violation of their bullying and hate speech policies.
