    Google Pulls Parler as Apple Threatens the Same in Wake of Capitol Riot

    Google Pulls Parler as Apple Threatens the Same in Wake of Capitol Riot

    Alphabet Inc.’s Google late Friday suspended Parler, a free-speech focused social-media network favored by conservatives, from its app store, and Apple Inc. threatened to do the same in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot.

    So much for competition. Google doesn't fear any anti-trust action under the Communist Totalitarian Regime, as long as they are part of the machine.

    And here I thought the Democrats were for the "little guy" and railed against crony capitalism. I guess only the crony capitalism that doesn't help them to accrue power and money.

    Democrat politicians in general have always been wealthier and more involved in kleptocracy, all the while falsely claiming they are for the “little guy”.

    Pretty sure we can stop calling it a "riot".

    It was more like an unauthorized walk-through.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/07/a...rt-damage.html

    Detailed damage assessments from the Architect of the Capitol or the U.S. Capitol Police have yet to be released. But the singular works of art that curators consider the treasures of the building did not appear to have suffered any major damage.
    All those statues and paintings and relics... If this was a riot, then republicans really suck at rioting.

    No, this is just the excuse to clamp down on unallowable opinion.

    I saw a photo of the "rioters" walking single file through the hall with the statues and no one was outside the velvet rail barriers, they looked like they were going in to see a movie. https://media.thedonald.win/post/b8iGHy7g.jpeg

    Truth literally doesn't matter anymore.

    This is what happens when Liars, Cheats and Thieves are allowed to run rampant in a nation. Pretty soon everyone makes up their own history.

    There was definitely some damage done. Mostly to windows and doors. You know, things that got in the way of people moving around. But it doesn't seem like they were there to "riot". There was some furniture damage... they left some trash... But didn't topple the statues or busts (and there are lots of those in the building). No spray paint on paintings... nothing burned...

    You know the typical things you see in a "riot".

    I think its more than half the country. The only information that is supposed to get out is the bits of divisive propaganda the ~5% (and that might be pushing it) cares about. Most of the socialist movement are nothing more than pawns.

    You mean big tech companies hiding behind 230 while using 230 to attack those who say things they don't like?

    The answer is obvious. Now back to your regularly scheduled trolling.

    @Ehanced_Deficit's real agenda on RPF =troll:

    Who spends this much time copy/pasting the same recycled links, photos/talking points.

    7 yrs/25k posts later RPF'ers still respond to this troll

    The Video (scripted) of the "Storming" was Comical in the Borat Style.


    and a Congresswoman wrote a response to it a Day before it happened.(prior Knowledge)
    It was planned and expected..and organized for no other purpose than to silence the Several thousands of Peaceful but Angry Americans.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Do you think that companies should be legally liable for the content posted on their platforms by their users?

    I think they shouldn't be able to have it both ways. They should either act like a newspaper or an internet forum, but they can't choose which one based on the content they are judging. I think 230 might be better off dead, and then we let the market try to replace it with something mutually acceptable. I bet it can come up with a system at least as good as the current one.

    Heck, the market might sort this out reasonably well anyway. Parler, Signal, Rumble, etc are all quickly becoming viable alternatives. More competition is bound to enter the market soon and take advantage.

    “Inciting violence”.

    How many years have leftists been inciting and encouraging violence and riots on social media? How many Democrats and leftist pundits celebrated the violent and potentially fatal attack on Rand Paul?

    The word "Republic" comes from two Latin words, Res and Publica. "Thing Public", which is THE LAW and it is supposed to apply to everyone equally. It obviously does not today, and we truly have Lawlessness, thus chaos.

    I've said all along that repealing section 230 seems counterproductive. I'm curious, for people like you who think it's ok to blacklist conservatives, is it also ok to blacklist African Americans?

    Depends what you mean by 'ok' Just because I support a company's ability to do it doesn't mean that I think that it should be done or is a good idea.


    If someone wants to make a whites only clone of twitter, they can. (Arguable that Gab is already exactly that de facto) What will happen, though, is that they will just end up crying that they cannot force anyone else to host them, handle their financial transactions, etc. Which is exactly what is happening in this case.



    (PS: Nobody has blacklisted 'conservatives.' The thing that is causing people to be banned from Twitter, or for Parler to be shunned, is not 'conservatism.')
