Banning Parler for hate speech, but not Twitter/Facebook which does have hate speech is hypocritical.
(Excerpt) Read more at newsweek.com ...
"...The rationale given by all these Big Tech behemoths is that Parler doesn't do enough to moderate the violent threats its users make on its platform. This is rich, coming from companies that host and circulate Facebook and Twitter, where violent threats proliferate on a daily basis. Twitter has even gone to court, on free speech grounds, to protect the use of its site for organizing protests..."
None of them should be banned.
Facebook posts can be totally laced with obscenities and nobody at f/b gives a crap.
So Newsweek’s problem with the censorship is that it should have been broader.
The creation of terms like “hate speech” is the real crime. Speech is just words. This country is based on people being allowed to speak their minds. It has turned into a wussy thought crime regime second only to Hitler, if it is second at all.
When hate crimes were a added to the law, we were doomed. Hate crimes can only be used against whites. Nice work there government.
It has to be a little significant at least that Newsweek published this.
Odds of the author disappearing?
Yes I agree. It’s very significant that Newsweek published this.
Wait, what is going on here? Did Trump buy Newsweek for $1?
I do not think so.
Each day reveals more enemies lined up against the 70 million Trump voters. Now we get to build a communication infrastructure. Big tech just accelerated their monopoly’s death.
We are now the hunted
Fight like you are the third monkey on the ramp to Noah’s ark and its starting to rain
ARMED up America.
Anything uttered by Islam is by definition Hate Speech.
If there is Islam on the site there is hate speech.
Newsweek should be banned.
Free market, people just abandon the places that don’t confirm their bias.
And even that is an illusion. Controlled dissent only.
Imagine the founding fathers. Violence against the king is always bad.
Of course the king says that.
