Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut said shutting down Alex Jones’ website “InfoWars” is a “good first step” to stop the spread of lies in America.

Murphy tweeted about the incident with Jones on Monday and praised Facebook, Apple and YouTube for stepping in to censor his InfoWars content.

He followed up with a second tweet, calling InfoWars the “tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies” and accused Jones of trying to tear America apart. Murphyalso said websites like Facebook and YouTube need to push even harder in the future with their censorship of harmful material.

Murphy is running for reelection in the upcoming midterm elections this November.
