Big tech-now Amazon tries to silence Parler
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/09/amazon-d...rvice.html

At some point it should be a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against big tech. But the company will be gone by then.

This is the type of stuff that convinced me I had to vote for Donald Trump in 2016. They are trying to silence dissenting voices.

companies should decide what goes on their platform. If Trump wants to get his message out hold a press conference like a real world leader.

We are in agreement...
Companies are private businesses (not government entities) and should be able to set their terms of service including to whom they provide a good or service.

Theoretically I fully agree, but we are in a unique situation where a small group of social media companies have a monopoly and the left and the government is using them as a proxy to silence decent and free speech. Not to mention the fact that those same monopolies have huge fat government contracts.

So we are going to have to change those rules or break up those monopolies. The status quote cannot continue because its being purposely used to institute fascism and suppression of free speech.

A company cannot selectively pick and choose application of their terms of service.

And they should be open to law suits for anti-competitive or collusive actions....which this clearly is. You have Twitter, Amazon, Google, and Apple all colluding with one another to destroy a competitor. Thats classic antitrust/anti-competitive behavior.

Its obvious the left is totally illiterate on anti-trust law and monopolies.

"Make your own social media platform."

"Make your own server and DDS protection."

"Make your own fiber optics cable."

"Make your own country."

Are we starting to see how bad that argument is now?

Plenty of conservative AG's in red states. My belief is the right needs to form a coalition of red state AG's to utilize the courts as a brake on the potential of the Biden administration, now in possession of majorities in both houses of Congress, to careen wildly down the leftist train tracks laid down by AOC and others. California, New York, and Hawaii were especially aggressive in using the courts to slow and impeded Trumps agenda. I hope to see Texas lead the way in a similar effort.

You're right! He should have them as often as Biden* has had and will have them.

When's the last time he had a press conference again?

Didn’t courts rule that Trump couldn’t block people from Twitter because it is a public forum?

On this we agree, but at the same time they should not be afforded federal protections from libel if they are choosing content.

As soon as they decide to be an arbiter of content, they are responsible for EVERYTHIGN that is untrue not just what they feel like it untrue. They will be bankrupt in 24 months after they lose that protection. All it will take is one false accusation of Rape to be allowed and the falsely accused will be rich - if there is anything left to take that is.

I just checked it out for the 1st time. I'll sign up later today. My Facebook feed isn't bad, because out of 400 or so friends on there, only 4-5 would post liberal leaning things, and I simply hid those folks. Everyone else in my friends list and all family are conservatives. Still gonna hit Gab up though.
