With each passing day, the Marxist left, using whatever tools available to it, marches one or two steps closer to a complete takeover of our struggling, dying republic - and that includes the disgustingly corrupt 'mainstream media.'
In the immediate aftermath of the breach on the U.S. Capitol Building by some supporters of President Trump, the establishment press has already invented a fake narrative to justify the complete deplatforming and delisting of all of the president's supporters, including the 99 percent who attended his "Stop the Steal" rally ahead of the assault.
We Are Change noted:
"Predictably, this entirely American disruption has blue-checkmarked commentariat shrieking about Vladimir Putin on social media. Just as predictably, it's also got them calling for the censorship of social media.
Are you picking up on that? The liars in the mainstream media are allowed to post their fabricated narratives on the same left-wing social media platforms that often ban Trump supporters and conservatives who post things that are true.
The New York Times has published two new articles titled "The storming of Capitol Hill was organized on social media" and "Violence on Capitol Hill Is a Day of Reckoning for Social Media," both arguing for more heavy-handed restrictions on speech from Silicon Valley tech giants."
Did you also pick up on the fact that this media outlet, which operates under the First Amendment's speech protections and press guarantees, is calling for censorship?
In the first story, the Times' Sheera Frenkel claims "the violence Wednesday was the result of online movements operating in closed social media networks where people believed the claims of voter fraud and of the election being stolen from Mr. Trump."
Note to Frenkel: The election was stolen from the president - but Russia did not help him 'steal the election' from Hillary Clinton in 2016. What liars.
Anyway, Frenkel cited the 'expert' analysis of Renee DiResta, a think tank type who claimed once that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) was a 'Russian asset' when she was running for the Democratic presidential nomination last year.
"These people are acting because they are convinced an election was stolen," DiResta said. "This is a demonstration of the very real-world impact of echo chambers.
"This has been a striking repudiation of the idea that there is an online and an offline world and that what is said online is in some way kept online," she continued.
So, what's the solution? Kick these right-wing conspiracy nuts offline!
Of course. Just like a 'Democratic' tyrant - and hypocritical too, as We Are Change points out:
This narrative which seeds the idea that unregulated communication on the internet will lead to violent uprisings is funny coming from Frankel, who, as a Twitter follower recently observed, wrote a piece in 2018 condemning the Iranian government for restricting protesters' social media access during the demonstrations at that time.
"Social media and messaging apps have become crucial to antigovernment demonstrators around the world, as a means of both organizing and delivering messages to other citizens," Frankel wrote. "Not surprisingly, restricting access to such technology has become as important to government crackdowns as the physical presence of the police."
Social media for Iranian freedom fighters and libertarians good; for American freedom fighters and libertarians, bad.
The Times' second piece by Frankel, Mike Isaac and Kate Conger pushes for bans of Trump supporters online even less subtly.
"As pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday and halted the certification of Electoral College votes, the role of social media companies such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube in spreading misinformation and being a megaphone for Mr. Trump came under renewed criticism," they write.
"So when violence broke out in Washington on Wednesday, it was, in the minds of longtime critics, the day the chickens came home to roost for the social media companies."
Translation: 'You must deplatform all who disagree with us!'
Again, conservatives, listen up: Stop relying on these clowns and sycophants to 'come to their senses' and 'be fair.' They're not going to be. So we have to develop our own parallel economy and ecosystems. Because sooner or later, the insane left will take all of theirs away and shut us out.
PARLER CEO: BIG TECH TRYING TO KILL COMPETITION
By Cassandra Fairbanks - thegatewaypundit.com
Parler CEO John Matze has responded to Amazon kicking the platform off their hosting services, calling it a "coordinated attack."
On Saturday, Amazon kicked Parler off their webhosting service, meaning the platform will be offline until they find a new host.
The ban goes into effect on Sunday, effectively shutting down the platform that conservatives have flocked to since the big tech giants began banning conservatives.
In a post on Parler, Matze wrote that "Sunday at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in 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. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products."
"We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as 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," the statement continued.
Matze concluded that "this was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don't count us out."
Parler has faced what can only be described as a mass coordinated cyber attack by Big Tech, first being banned by Apple and Google within a 24 hour time period.
Amazon's employees had been lobbying for the platform to be booted so that they could further silence their political adversaries.
In an email obtained by BuzzFeed News, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Trust and Safety team told Parler Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff that "the calls for violence propagating across Parler violated its terms of service and that Amazon is unconvinced that the service's plan to use volunteers to moderate such things will be effective."
Of course, they did no such bans when Black Lives Matter was planning riots across Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tik Tok last year.
"Recently, we've seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms. It's clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service," the email reads. "We cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others," the email reads. "Because Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend Parler's account effective Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST."
In a post on Parler about Apple's decision to ban them from the app store earlier in the day, CEO John Matze wrote, "Apple will be banning Parler until we give up free speech, institute broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook and we become a surveillance platform by pursuing guilt of those who use Parler before innocence."
"They claim it is due to violence on the platform. The community disagrees as we hit number 1 on their store today. The same day 'Hang Mike Pence', a disgusting violent suggestion, was trending nationally on Twitter. Displaying the horrible double standard Apple and their big tech pack apply to the community," the statement contined. "Apple, a software monopoly, provides no alternatives to installing apps on your phone other then their store. We do not own our phones, Apple simply rents them to us. Apple, Google and the rest of the anti-competitive pack of big tech tyrants coordinate their moves and work together to stifle competition in the marketplace."
"More details about our next plans coming soon as we have many options," Matze concluded.
The ban goes into effect on Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST.
Big tech has also been banning Trump supporters and allies at a record pace. They want you silenced.
