If Parler’s CEO wants to continue running a criminal conspiracy and insurrectionist site then he can buy and maintain his own servers.

Yes, it has nothing to do with their posters posting murder lists with people's addresses.
Please, there was plenty of posts advocating violence on Instagram last year and they had no problem with those. Stop acting like social media is being evenhanded because it’s not.

Boohoo, and small potatoes.

Don't help stage revolutions, no matter how ultimately incompetent they prove to be.

While some of the images from that day appeared to show officers standing by to let the mob into the Capitol building, the veteran officer said that they had fought them off for two hours before the attackers eventually gained access. The officer said that many of the widely spread images of smiling marauders, wandering the halls dressed in absurd costumes, had the effect of downplaying how well prepared some of the rioters were to overtake the building, and even to capture and kill Congress members.
“That was a heavily trained group of militia terrorists that attacked us,” said the officer, who has been with the department for more than a decade.

“They had radios, we found them, they had two-way communicators and earpieces. They had bear spray. They had flash bangs ... They were prepared. They strategically put two IEDs, pipe bombs, in two different locations. These guys were military trained. A lot of them were former military,” the officer said, referring to two suspected pipe bombs that were found outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee.

You sure you don't want to demand that that poster condemn something? :rolleyes:




What a boring routine. At least people know that if they've seen one X Factor post, they've seen 'em all. I guess there's that.

Are you saying that there were murder lists with people's addresses on Instagram?

It is not a criminal conspiracy and insurrectionist site, so stop lying.
What if the owner of Parler decides to remove those posts that meet the above criteria?
Should Amazon offer Parler service again?

I knew it was going to be a good day! Here's an idea, don't promote hate and violence.
I believe the owner of Parler must remove any post that promotes violence and insurrection. That's not free speech.

What do you define as hate? Opinions you hate? What if someone says they hate Biden, really hate him.. Who gets to define the political speech that is hateful? I see there's a thread where some are promoting for the removal of Fox News. What do you think about going that route? Do you think Fox should be shut down because according to some they are promoting "hate" speech? What about Twitter? They allow plenty of hate on their site? Should we shut them down too because Kathy Griffin incited the assassination of DJT? Should big tech be the arbitrator of political forums, and have the power to say, you're done? Off the air, damaging you so badly that nobody will want to service you again?

Indeed.

Not sure that would be enough for Amazon or some other big company to let them back on. Remove post is one thing. Having a system in place to make sure improper content is not posted is another.

Unfortunately, it may be too late for Parler. It may not be able to overcome the negative view of it since 1/6/2021.

I suspect they'll be able to find overseas hosting, if they so desire. They'll be with the porn & torrent sites, but they will be up. Hell, even Pirate Bay appears to still be hanging around!

Oh that pesky free market, somehow companies don't want to be associated with violent seditious anti-American thugs who want to overthrow the government.

If they choose. Parler set itself up as an ultra-rightwing-conspiracy board and they got what they were looking for. Vendors dropped it because the level of cray-cray is above that of other places, and Parler's cray-cray tends to be a lot more violent and in support of illegal acts and domestic terrorism.
But should Parler drop all that, vendors may choose to host them again. Or they can purchase their own servers and run their own shit themselves and keep the cray-cray pro-terrorist nonsense.

excellent question. Where else do conservatives post and discuss murder lists? We should shut those down next.
I think Gab is one such site and it already had a similar problem back in 2018
