BEWARE APPLE USERS: Apple CEO Tim Cook Calls For Internet Censorship Reader 12/05/2018 (Wed) 18:17:42 Id: 3b221e [Preview] No. 13374

Apple CEO Tim Cook says that “dangerous conspiracy theorists” have no place on the Internet or on Apple platforms.

Cook blasted free thinkers and independent journalists such as Alex Jones after receiving the first “Courage Against Hate” award from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). He used his time onstage to blast those who spread non-mainstream views online.

“At Apple, we believe technology needs to have a clear point of view. This is no time to get tied up in knots. We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, or violence: You have no place on our platforms. You have no home here. From the earliest days of iTunes to Apple Music today we have always prohibited music with a history of white supremacy. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. And as we showed this year, we won’t give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists. Why? Because it’s the right things to do.”

“Violent conspiracy theorists” refers to Alex Jones’ Infowars, which was removed from Apple’s App Store earlier this year. Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL’s CEO, specifically mentioned Jones’ removal from the platform as a key moment in fighting back against hateful content, noting that Apple’s decision to remove Infowars led to its removal from other platforms, including YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.

Much of Cook’s keynote presentation at the ADL’s “Never is Now” conference in New York City focused on the moral guidelines by which Apple operates. Cook reiterated multiple times that although Apple is a technology company, he understands that its mission goes far beyond designing hardware.

“Apple is a technology company, but we never forget the devices we make are imagined by human minds, built by human hands, and meant to improve human lives,” Cook said. “I worry less about computers that think like people and more about people that think like computers. Technology should be about human potential. It should be about optimism.

“We believe the future should belong to those who view technology as a way to build a more inclusive and hopeful world.”

Apple has long been in bed with the Chinese establishment and I bet you didn't give a shit.

I knew about that, and I have posted reports about that in the past too. Thing is when I post reports like that on other image boards like 8chan my reports almost immediately get slid by disinfo agents over there because frankly they don't want anyone talking about this kind of stuff. They don't want anyone to know about this kind of corruption, and there are so many disinfo agents quick to throw labels at you if you question the corporate media's narratives. So I do know that fact and I have posted about it before.
