Does anyone REALLY doubt we are seeing an orchestrated seizure of all available information in an attempt to silence political speech?
The number of members on Biden’s transition team with connections to Silicon Valley suddenly become a very interesting data point. The same big tech companies blinded the public to any information about the contents of Hunter’s laptop and any claims of criminality alleged by the testimony of Hunter’s own business partner went unheard by the masses.
Now that Dems have seized political power, they are hard at work consolidating it. They didn’t wait for Trump to leave office before pulling the plug on his ENTIRE digital presence, right down to his email lists and his Shopify account.
Nobody cared about Parler, the relative newcomer on the block, until Conservatives who had been blacklisted from the bigger players — Facebook and Twitter, for instance — switched over to a platform that wasn’t busy censoring and fact-checking political speech.
When conservative Twitter accounts started going dark, there was a mass exodus to places like Parler, which was, briefly, the #1 downloaded app.
In the quote that follows, NBC left out the word ‘alleged’ before ‘violent content’ for some ‘inexplicable’ reason. No bias there, eh?
Amazon will suspend social media site Parler from its server hosting service on Sunday over violent content that has also prompted Google Play and Apple to remove the platform from its app stores.
Parler, the “Twitter for conservatives,” was used by supporters of President Donald Trump to express hatred and threaten violence that culminated in Wednesday’s riots at the U.S. Capitol, the tech giants said.
…Parler CEO John Matze, writing on his platform, called the decision by Amazon an “attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet.”
“There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch,” he wrote.
Matze accused the Silicon Valley tech giants of a “coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies.”

Amazon. You know, the company owned by the guy who also owns the Washington Post.
The tech companies that ALL genuflect before, and kiss the collective ass of the Chinese Communist Party have a very shaky case at any ‘moral high ground’ since their own companies have directly helped the CCP abuse its own citizens… and strip Hong Kong citizens of their freedoms YEARS before the agreement for them to revert to Chinese authoritarian rule.
Until conservatives turned there to have the right to speak freely, nobody bothered Parler. Suddenly, Big tech corporations have been coordinating to sabotage any available chokepoint in their political rivals’ access to the digital public square — be they monetary, infrastructure, or delivery methods.
We are looking at coordination between allegedly independent megacorps with a clear politcal objective, delivering nearly absolute and unchecked federal power to one political party while actively coordinating to silence their political rivals.
Quid Pro Joe really hit the jackpot this time.
By law, the First Amendment forbids a government to censor its political rivals. But ‘privately-owned companies’? THEY can do the censoring on the Democrat’s behalf.
It makes you wonder what they’re getting in exchange, now doesn’t it?
