Additional proof of Trump’s point comes in the way Big Tech is silencing the president and banishing those who believe Biden’s victory was less than 100 percent clean. Twitter’s claim that it has simply removed about 70,000 bots doesn’t pass the smell test, given the scope of complaints from conservatives about the vast number of followers who suddenly vanished.

Not to be outdone, Facebook blocks any mention of “stop the steal” and Amazon, Apple and Google drove Twitter competitor Parler off the web and out of business.

As Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida put it, “We are now living in a country where four or five companies, unelected, unaccountable, have the monopoly power to decide, we’re gonna wipe people out, we’re going to erase them from any digital platform.”

None of this is a defense of those who invaded the Capitol, especially those who committed violence.
The Trump poster where he states "In reality they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.” Has never rung so true.
And now, businesses may not be able to get credit due to political beliefs, and pre employment back ground checks will include a social media screen based on Google Analytics to build a political and economic profile (as well as race if they wish to).

The reason China entered the Korean war was the did not want a democracy on their border. The reason they took Hong Kong, was to squash any ideas of democracy or quasi independence. The reason we have lost free speech here, is $4 trillion in multinational companies kissing China's ass for more business decided to shut up the party that objected.

You, as "the man on the street", just got raped and you don't even know how bad yet. No one does.

Last point. Is it just me or has posting traffic gone flat? I have never seen it so quiet. Is everyone taking cover for things they said in an emotional moment? Don't be. They work from the top down.

Anyone who even gave tacit support to the events on Wednesday, as well as the stop the steal retoric should be called out and publically shamed.

The fact that so many Republicans are willing to put party over country, and pledge their loyalty to Trump instead of the Constitution, is something that should be documented, and should haunt them forever.

Goodwin is a longtime columnist with the right-leaning Murdoch-owned NY Post and a Fox News contributor.

Nuff said.

The reason China entered the Korean war was the did not want a democracy on their border.
They didn't want another superpower on their border of any stripe, and they certainly didn't want to see Korea go to the west. Nobody wants the US military on their borders - not even other democracies.

The reason they took Hong Kong, was to squash any ideas of democracy or quasi independence.
They never "took Hong Kong" - the British lease was up and the city defaulted back from whence it came.

The reason we have lost free speech here, is $4 trillion in multinational companies kissing China's ass for more business decided to shut up the party that objected.
We've never lost free speech.

Posting traffic has gone flat, not because of what people here said in an emotional moment, but because Trump supporters are in full retreat due to the events of 1/6, and Trump's indefensible actions to subvert our democracy. Many of them know they were wrong, and are simply fed up with making excuses for him. The past four years of feeble rationalizations for him has simply been too draining on too many of his apologists.

Do you actually think all this "Hang 'em High" bravado is going to play out? I totally don't think so. You haters are watching too much TV.

Eh. Context matters. This isn’t a witch-hunt for conservative voices. This is a post 1/6 country that realizes at the moment there are right wing radicals, prone to being violent, and in this atmosphere advocacy, encouraging, planning, and inciting violence can’t be tolerated on Parler or other platforms.
