From Bruce Haring’s article at deadline.com, we have this piece of beyond-scary news:
“Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze said today on Fox News.
Matze conceded that the bans could put the far-right company out of business while raising free speech issues, calling it “an assault on everybody.”
“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they’re actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze said. “They made an attempt to not only kill the app, but to actually destroy the entire company. And it’s not just these three companies. Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day.”
If these companies – more exactly, the tiny bunch of silicon valley leftists running them – can do this, they are in charge of what we can and cannot see and hear.
If they are in charge, we no longer have free speech. Our “free speech” now defines as what Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, Sundar Pichai, along with Mark Zuckerberg and a few others, allow it to be.
If Parler can summarily be put out of business by these people, we live in a country that may be called the United States, but, in practice, is something very, very different than what we once knew it as.
More on this as it develops.
