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 InfoWars content. (RELATED: Companies Suspend Ads On Alex Jones’ ‘InfoWars’ YouTube Channel After CNN Contacts Them)

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. Murphy also 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.
