  • WATCH: Apple CEO Tim Cook Accidentally Reveals Collusion Between Big Tech Companies To Censor Free Speech

    01/19/2021 6:57:13 AM PST · by A.M. Smith · 22 replies
    Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took his mask all the way off this weekend when he was talking about removing Parler from the app store from existence through a coordinated monopolistic collusion with other tech giants over supposed incitement concerns. He also gave away the overall game. He said they don’t “consider” the parts of Parler they don’t like to be “free speech.” And then, without realizing it, revealed the reason for, and method of, collusion between the tech giants. It was the “incitement” talk that foreshadowed Cook’s Sunday commentary. See, as we’ve been saying in our ongoing tracking of the...

    Tech giant Apple is reportedly being sued by a Washington nonprofit group in federal court that is demanding that the company remove the encrypted messaging app Telegram from its app store. The Washington Post reports that a Washington nonprofit group called the Coalition for a Safer Web has sued tech giant Apple in federal court. The lawsuit, filed on Sunday, demands that the chat and social media app Telegram be removed from Apple’s App Store for failing to crack down on extremist conversation on its platform following protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

    On the heels of the breach of the U.S. Capitol, Big Tech companies have swiftly censored the President, the emerging social media platform Parler was effectively shut down, and there are growing calls for no-fly lists. Does the assault on the Capitol warrant such a response? “We’re living in a gigantic lie that is reminiscent of the Reichstag fire,” argues talk show host Dennis Prager, founder of Prager University. This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
  • How Silicon Valley, in a Show of Monopolistic Force, Destroyed Parler

    SubStack ^ | 1/12/2021 | Glenn Greenwald
    Critics of Silicon Valley censorship for years heard the same refrain: tech platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter are private corporations and can host or ban whoever they want. If you don’t like what they are doing, the solution is not to complain or to regulate them. Instead, go create your own social media platform that operates the way you think it should. The founders of Parler heard that suggestion and tried. In August, 2018, they created a social media platform similar to Twitter but which promised far greater privacy protections, including a refusal to aggregate user data in order...

    Cupertino, California — Apple today announced a set of major new projects as part of its $100 million Racial Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI) to help dismantle systemic barriers to opportunity and combat injustices faced by communities of color.

Together, Apple’s REJI commitments aim to expand opportunities for communities of color across the country...

    Whitehouse.gov ^ | January 5, 2021 | National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien
    Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order addressing the continuing threat posed by Chinese software applications. The Chinese government requires that all commercial companies, big and small, support the Chinese Communist Party’s political objectives as Chinese regulators have recently demonstrated. China’s Military-Civil Fusion strategy explicitly aims to co-opt or coerce civilian enterprises into assisting the People’s Liberation Army. This executive order tasks the Secretary of Commerce to identify prohibited transactions involving eight Chinese software applications, including payment services; directs the Secretary of Commerce to identify and take appropriate action against other software applications; and develops a program to...

    I generally don't like the idea of boycotts, at least not in a coordinated manner. I view boycotts as a tool of the left. That doesn't mean that I do not personally choose to send my business elsewhere when I am displeased with a business.I clearly recall the first business that I decided to avoid. It was K-mart. I don't remember the exact year, but I remember the reason. They made a big anti-2a push and stopped selling firearms in their stores. It was their choice to go public about being anti-gun. They were trying to influence public opinion. I...
  • The Progressive Purge Begins. Tech’s stampede against the right will lead to more populist anger.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 10, 2021 | WSJ Editorial Board
    Can right-wing populist sentiment be banished from American life by the brute force of social-media censorship? We’re about to find out. After Wednesday’s mob invasion of the Capitol that disrupted the counting of electoral votes, big tech firms have moved, aggressively and in unison, against Donald Trump and his supporters. The companies say they want to marginalize the violent fringe, but their censorship will grow it instead. On Thursday and Friday came the Facebook and Twitter bans of Mr. Trump. Given the extraordinary circumstances, some commentators who normally oppose web censorship were untroubled. An exception who deserves to be listened...

    Apple removed Parler, an app popular with Trump supporters, from its iPhone App Store on Saturday. Apple said that posts on the pro-Trump social network related to the U.S. Capitol riot last week included calls for violence, which violates Apple’s rules against objectionable content. “We have always supported diverse points of view being represented on the App Store, but there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity,” an Apple representative said in a statement. “Parler has not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety. We have suspended Parler...

    John Matze, CEO of Parler, the free speech-oriented Twitter alternative, responded Friday to the report that Apple might kick his app off its app store if it did not censor users. “Apple is currently threatening to ban Parler — the free speech alternative to Twitter — unless the service enacts draconian censorship policies demanded by left-wing Big Tech oligarchs, according to two sources familiar with Apple’s threats,” The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis tweeted. But Matze indicated that the Twitter alternative would not amend its policies to appease the Big Tech company. “We plan on enforcing our [terms of service] and...
