Apple has threatened free speech social media platform Parler with removal from the App Store unless the site implements the kind of massive censorship of its users that suits the far left.
Parler started up because the liberals at Twitter and Facebook had become places of fascist censorship. Now it looks like the lords of Big Tech are trying to force the free speech startup to bow to their vision of who should be allowed to speak and who should not.
Parler told Buzzfeed on Friday that Apple sent them a threatening email. Apple claimed that Parler was used to plan insurrection at the capital.
“We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property,” Apple reportedly wrote to Parler. “The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”
Apple then delivered its threat saying, “to ensure there is no interruption of the availability of your app on the App Store,” Parler will have to implement sweeping censorship.
Parler CEO John Matze was not scared. “We will not cave to pressure from anti-competitive actors! We will and always have enforced our rules against violence and illegal activity. But we WONT cave to politically motivated companies and those authoritarians who hate free speech!” he said.
“Anyone who buys an Apple phone is apparently a user. Apparently, they know what is best for you by telling you which apps you may and may not use,” Matze added.
This is what the liberals have in store for all who do not toe the extreme left-wing agenda.
If you are a conservative, if you are a patriot, if you love the country and the Constitution, Big Tech, the left, and the Democrat Party want you ostracized from society. They want you stopped from earning a living, kept from earning an education, refused bank accounts, in short, they want you prevented from being a free and equal citizen.
They want you to pledge your allegiance to them or you are to be subjugated and destroyed.
