Recently, President Donald J. Trump was banned permanently on Twitter, and Google and Instagram removed Parlor to prevent President Trump’s voicing on the same day. Moreover, Apple removed Parlor as well in the following next day. The Big Techs all work together to make sure at the same time that people lose access to the Apps. They no longer want to create an opportunity for everyone to be able to contribute their ideas freely. On the contrary, they become the enforcers of censorship.
This is absolutely unusual and very dangerous for people’s freedom of speech.
John Matze, Parler’s CEO, received the interview on FOXNEWS and said, “they’ve made an attempt to not only kill the app but to actually destroy the entire company. Not just these 3 companies, every vendor from text message services, the email providers, to our lawyers, all ditch us too on the same day. And they’re trying to falsely claim that we were somehow responsible for the event that occurred on the 6th.”
Republican House of Representatives Matt Gaetz also gave a talk on FOXNEWS and pointed out that “we cannot live in a world where the terms of service on Twitter are more important than the terms laid out by our Founding Fathers in the United States Constitution and in the Bill of Rights.”
On January 12th 2021, President Donald J. Trump made a public response to the massive shutdown of Big Tech on free speech, quote “I think that Big Tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country, and I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them. They’re dividing and divisive, and they’re showing something that I’ve been predicting for a long time. I’ve been predicting it for a long time and people didn’t act on it. But I think Big Tech has made a terrible mistake and very very bad for our country and that’s leading others to do the same thing. It causes a lot of problems and a lot of danger.”
He also emphasized in the video that the behaviors of Big Techs are “big mistake, they shouldn’t be doing it but there’s always a counter move when they do that. I’ve never seen such anger as I see right now and that’s a terrible thing, terrible thing. You have to always avoid violence and we have, we have tremendous support. We have support, probably like nobody’s ever seen before. Always have to avoid violence.”
When one reporter asked President Trump about his role in what happened in the Capital, he said, “So if you read my speech and many people have done it and I’ve seen it both in the papers and in the media on television, it’s been analyzed and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate. If you look at what other people have said, politicians at a high level, about the riots during the summer, the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle and various other places, that was a real problem, what they said. But they’ve analyzed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence. Everybody took the key and thought it was totally appropriate.”
