The Federal Communications Commission has shut down, at least temporarily, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ flagship radio station, according to The Austin American-Statesman.
Jacqueline Thomsen reports:
The newspaper reported that a lawsuit filed in federal court in Austin alleged that Liberty Radio had functioned without a license since at least 2013, and had been transmitting from a tower at an Austin apartment complex.
Liberty Radio stopped airing on the radio in December, but still streams online. The FCC is charging that the station was also illegally broadcasting on an FM wavelength.
The Associated Press reported that Walter Olenick and M. Rae Nadler-Olenick were named as the defendants in the lawsuit, and the apartment complex where the station was transmitting from is linked to the pair.
The Olenicks reportedly told the FCC that they would not pay the fine and would treat any agency representatives as trespassers.
Jones, the Infowars host who infamously claimed the murder of children at Sandy Hook Elementary constituted a false flag, has received bans on several platforms.
However, liberal hate-mongers like Louis Farrakhan remain active on Facebook, Twitter, and other sites.
