    Google Pulls Parler as Apple Threatens the Same in Wake of Capitol Riot
    Alphabet Inc.’s Google late Friday suspended Parler, a free-speech focused social-media network favored by conservatives, from its app store, and Apple Inc. threatened to do the same in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot.

    Google said it acted because of “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.,” which violated its requirements for sufficient moderation of egregious content for apps it distributes. “In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues,” a Google representative said.


    http://www.politicalforum.com/index.php?forums/current-events.11/create-thread

    How many times have Democrats posted "but you can go post on Parler, there is no monopoly for total censorship?"

    Google and Apple both have demanded Parler turn over editorial control to Google and Apple. If not, Google will remove Parler from Google's search engine and Parler will not work on Apple phones.

    I will keep stating, this is a total takeover of government, of the Internet, of the economy, of everything everyone does, doesn't do, who you can talk to, what you may or may not say and otherwise a pure totalitarian corporate fascist plutocracy that the kleptocrats increasingly turn into a full police state. It's a done deal, a 100% successful coup by the richest and most powerful international corporations and people in the history of earth destroying everyone in their path or if there is the slightest non-submission and or less than total obedience.

    That's what Google and Apple - the two most powerful and wealthiest corporations on earth - paying no taxes - just told Parler. Everyone on Parler and Parler itself will turn all control over to Google and Apple and everyone allowed on Parler must say only what they are required to say and nothing else - or they will destroy Parler and thereby ban 100% of Parler users in actual effect.

    Ah yes- the point where conservatives realize what they really want to do is be racist and organize violence. But big tech says “if you want to play, you have to play by our rules”. As if the free market is siding against them.

    There it is, racist, right there in the first response. Libs have a one track mind, race. In fact, their preferred races can use social media platforms to organize racist attacks on entire cities as they riot, loot, and burn those cities to the ground. Oh, you say the left’s terrorist attacks on cities aren’t racist, eh? How many black tenements and ghettos got looted and burned to the ground?

    :salute: ~ Here we go. Soon political debate websites will be neutered . Big tech is part of big government elites creating censorship of opposing views disguised as " protecting the public ". Sounds like China already. :censored:

    Have you seen some of the stuff that is posted on Parler?

    Stop promoting violence and censorship stops.

    Wow. You don’t even deny that the trump supporters were racist. That’s actually really sad.

    Also I’m a moderate who has studied right wing extremists in the us. This is just what right wing terrorism looks like when they are mobilized by political leaders.

    They already are.

    That's why most news sites have removed their comment sections... so when they post stupid ass articles like this one:

    https://www.sfchronicle.com/restaur...adich-Grill-in-S-F-gets-lifeline-15853851.php

    People can't make fun of them.

    Do you really think that if enough progressive Democrats complained loud enough they would not do the same to this forum?

    See all the messages talking about election fraud? Disagreeing on covid-19? THEY DO NOT TOLERATE THESE DISCUSSIONS.

    You ‘studied’ right wing extremists in the US. That must have been a pretty short class you took. By any chance did they cover the black panthers, blm, Antifa, weather underground, cair, and all the other violent extremists, or were they classified as freedom fighters?

    Stop pretending to be a moderate. It serves no purpose and is just annoying. Calling 70,000,000 Americans "right wing terrorists" is the the perspective of progressive corporate fascism. That is not what being a moderate means.
    Since their first president, the Democratic Party's most known historic skill is running off poor black people. Check out Portland and Seattle. The Democratic Party has been burning blacks out of their towns and cities since day one.

    At least we shouldn't be reading all the message by Democrats that if you don't like Twitter or are banned from Twitter, go post on Parler anymore. Not if you have an Apple. Not if you try to find it on Google. Not on a Google Chrome computer or tablet.

    We studied the 2nd wave of terrorism. Less bloody than the current wave. This wave tends to rely on mass killings, in part due to the availability of explosive materials, internet, and globalization. Or were you trying to ignore the fact you don't deny that the trump supporters were racists.

    I don't care if you think it's annoying. It's an unfortunate truth that Republicans have a race problem. This is not new, it's common knowledge. What I care about is why did so many people vote for the same man who supported Birthers? Why are so many Republicans white? Why did we see racist epithets on capital hill? Why are we seeing an increase in right wing terrorism over the years? What connects this idea to the increase support of authoritarianism in Trump supporters? The answers all point to the same thing- Trump supporters are racist, or are clinging to racism because if they didn't have it they would lose out on a lot of societal benefits.

    K. Whatever you need to tell yourself to fall asleep at night. It's this kind of post that highlights the inability of Trump supporters to understand the problem.

    It looks like we lost the chance to reign in these billionaire social media companies. It's not going to happen now. They're practically running the country.

    Your hating yourself for being white isn't my problem whatsoever. I'm not white and I think people who incessantly post about their white guilt problems are _____________________________.

    Maybe your \extra super white old male lobbyist for Mastercard and VISA whose political career began by him promising the rich he's for sale (literally) and on his white segregationist declaration against school integration to prevent schools becoming "racial jungles" can rapidly advance the progressive Democratic Party's goal of returning to racial segregation. However, this times Democratic leadership's separate-but-equal rules and actions will be tilted towards black people. That way your self declared born inherently superior white progressive self can help them pathetically helpless and inferior black people you so pity in the safe spaces you make for them - insuring they will never have to be around you white people like you again because you understand how terrified black people should be of white people.

    Is it liberals fault that all the creative computer geniuses who started these big privately owned platforms and most of the people operating them are more liberal than you?

    No. If you want to blame anyone, blame all the right wing people who didn’t study computer science or didn’t have the creative spark to put together a massive internet platform.

    It is what it is.

    That is all.

    It is always interesting reading white people on the forum, particularly old white Democratic posters posting about black people. Not so much for how intensely racist stereotyping their messages are, but how ignorant they are.
    Hey, tell us your wisdom about them Asian people too. LOL.

    What does that have anything to do with what I posted? I'm simply stating facts- that this is a race problem and Trump supporters either use racism to their advantage consciously, or make compromises with themselves so they can deal with racism. This post here:"owever, this times Democratic leadership's separate-but-equal rules and actions will be tilted towards black people" is the problem. Why be democratic when democracy will vote against you? This sentiment right here? That's why Trump supporters stormed capital hill. That there is proof of what I am saying.

    You should make a stereotypical demographic list about what of the various "thems" are all like to you before we continue this discussion so we can keep it in your context of the various components of the plutocrats and kleptocrats collective.

    The only race problem in this country is because of people like you. The reason white you is so fixated on your pity and pitiful views of black people is because it makes you feel guilty about being superior and so lucky to be white. I suspect it is the only thing you can claim that makes you of superior advantage over anyone.

    Parler is also on the web, not having the app is not a deal breaker.

    I agree this is a worrying move by Google and Apple, but it's their platform.

    Time to learn how to talk face to face again.

    Groups of people meeting and talking is currently illegal in most states and I think all Democratic Party control states plus many of their cities by executive edicts.

    It's called large n analysis, look it up. You talk about 70,000,000 Trump supporters? You set it up the standards for large N analysis. Or did you not like how I talked about your words and how they vindicate what I, and lots of other researchers have been saying for years? Tell me. Why are there more right wing terrorists than left wing?

    And no, the failures of the 1960's and racists who were willing to ignore things like the Kerner Commission got us here. This is something that people have been predicting for years. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that we still live in a racist society and that ignoring race and how it still matters gets us here. There's no other way to put it-race matters.
