On the Spectrum of Lothsomeness

Alex Jones is a jerk, a creep, a lunatic, deeply offensive, societally corrosive, and an affront to all decency. 

He also, to the best of my knowledge, is not advocating anyone get banned for saying things that he finds disgracious to his demented world view.

This makes him vastly less loathsome to me than the people who advocate de-platforming him, and somewhat less loathsome than those who think that this is 'not the hill to dies on' .


More in depth thoughts on this here, here, and here. A less current but more succinct take on this issue has been making the rounds as well.


UPDATE:
Oh good Lord!
