PayPal Dumps Alex Jones; Still Handles SPLC

<span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">PayPal finally joined other Big Tech giants in attacking Alex Jones and his Infowars empire, dumping the conservative conspiracy theorist from its site.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The leftist Internet purchasing platform, which handles buying and selling goods online, targeted Jones because he retails “hate speech.” This, we are told, violates PayPal’s policies.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The money-changing giant joined Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter in waging war against Jones.
