Are the below quotes true? Please confirm. Thanks.


"Of the first 13 people arrested by the FBI in connection with the event at the Capitol, a total of zero were active users of Parler. The overwhelming amount of planning for that event, the overwhelming amount of advocacy for people to go there and to breach the Capitol was done on Facebook, and on YouTube, and on Twitter,"

"This is one of the ironies is that Google is one of the monopolies that wants to police our discourse and control our thinking and rule our politics that kicked Parler off of its app at the exactly the time that Parler had gone to number one,"

"Google said, we will not allow you on our service," "the reality is the service that Google owns, YouTube, played a much greater role."

Why did he stop counting at the first 13? And doesn’t that speak tho the appropriateness of Twitter’s bans?

Probably dropping in on you, California
dont know the difference. if they took down fb and youtube - is that what you want? Im ok with it butI think the reason they went after Parler is because the majority of the users are right wing nutjobs, and the majority of youtube users upload cat videos.. just a hunch.

Plus parler was full of politically motivated death threats and rape fantasies.

No doubt its both politically motivated and motivated by the fortunes of the tech oligarchs. Leftists love oligarchs and other commie bastards.

I've noticed this as well and it cracks me up. "Please confirm" is a common refrain. It's absurd because whatever "confirmation" is provided will be denied. Definition of trolling.
Gdad telegraphs his little gotchas with psuedo-politeness. brings to mind a scruffy little dog that keeps dropping a stick at your feet and then sits there with his tail wagging, waiting for you to pick it up and throw it.

"they" is AWS - Parler's host. AWS has TOS, just like everybody else, just like this forum. Parler ostensibly has a TOS agreement, one that at least reflects the TOS they have agreed to with AWS, one that they apparently failed to enforce. AWS is entirely within their rights to cut Parler loose, just as this forum is within it's rights to cut anyone here loose for TOS violations. Parler has every right to find another host.

keep coming up with conspiracies when the truth is right in front of you. thats how parler got banned in the first place.
grossdad thinks one company would risk litigation to help save the fortune of the owner of another company. He’s on the case!
