  • Apple Has Threatened To Ban Parler From The App Store
  • The social networking app favored by conservatives has been given 24 hours to institute a moderation policy.
I didn't expect this one. Banning conservative media just as they begin to flee to it in mass. Shutting down their speech entirely is a bold move. Risky too. Speech is the only outlet to belay violent acts. It is civil discourse, however dangerous and uncivil it may be. To hunt down and attack convservative outlets, to banish the bubble itself is VERY bold.

Also too little, too late. The religion exists. They will find a way.

Americans live in interesting times.
they aren't shutting down anyone's speech. Apple can host whoever the fuck they want to host.

parler can restrategize if they are worried about getting enough hits and losing revenue.

why do you hate the market economy?

Another parler will come around. Will the big platforms accept them? Who cares? Host your own shit with your own risk and your own skin or gtfo. Society owes you nothing, you fucking terrified privileged bigoted shitbags. Not a god damn thing. Make your own shit and succeed or get the fuck out. It's what you've been braying about for decades. literally decades and you've never had a reason to. Now sack up and make an actual market-based success out of your own loathing or shut the motherfuck up. The world left you. Deal with it, or die in peace and spare the rest of humanity from your ether-fueled self destruction.

fucking conservatives.

(not you, OP. The royal "you")

Apple and Google should continue to allow Parler a platform so that the FBI can keep a detailed list of Republicans and Terrorists (redundant terms, I know) who are OPENLY PLOTTING violence and treason.

Shutting down Parler is counterproductive.
my thought, which I forgot from that^ extended rant up there, was basically this. However....if parler becomes insolvent, that leaves space for a properly organized, well funded honeypot social media account with all of the GOP-blessed Patriot Act surveillance in place, such that it becomes a thoroughly-trafficked and thoroughly-controlled and recorded right-wing/GOP forum platform where young Trump-aficionados and evolving GOPers can have one-on-one conversations with FBI agents to their hearts' content, establishing multi-year private relationships. Much like AT, but with way, way, way more treason!

The cherry on top is that with enough "treason points" racked up in their reputation system, they can opt for the "big sparky" or "firing squad" finale, once their trials are over...thanks of course to Trump actually reinstating such methods of torturous death...and much to their very own support! How perfect!

no.
wait, no.

that would be terrifying, actually. ...seriously, what happens when Donald Trump actually works?

Is there documented evidence of this actually happening, in the field?
just because he cant post doesnt mean Hair Failhrer isnt monitoring twitter. just get the lincoln project group to make some more of the digs that drives the nail in deeper. drumpf will be so busy stewing in his muted tantrums that his staff wont be able to do anything.

Finally!

Apple is threatening to ban Parker for not moderating content that threatens violence.
Goddamnit Parker. Moderate your shit already
Damn it, Parker! You went from this to that?



(edit: had to add the nested quote to preserve the joke; didn't want to give the wrong impression here. Remember nested quoting in Fuse Talk? it was glorious! It gave us "Lisa needs braces!" So many jokes can be had, so many conversations tbh...losing that lost the magic for AT, seriously. Everyone knows this. :()

There's literally nothing else to do. We spent four long, fucking years treating this horde of inbred gap-toothed fucks with kid gloves. Tech companies bent over backwards to accommodate the snowflakes and not piss them off. The media tried to figure out what was driving the idiots and got labeled enemy number one for it. Progressives offered policies to help the poor, uneducated Trumptards in shitholes like Heroinville, Kentucky and Cowfucking, Kansas and got labeled socialist fascist pedophile communists for it. Centrists offered stability and sanity to try and coax them back and got labeled socialist fascist pedophile communists for it. The Dems nominated their most-moderate, most-experienced, least-threatening and least-partisan candidate and got called socialist fascist pedophile communists for it.

The only thing left is to smash their echo chambers so the dumb fucks don't amplify their craziness anymore than it already is.

Oh great. Here comes the Teahadi bloodbath. FFS, I really do hope state LEO, NG, and JD are paying attention to this shit. ...and whichever hillbillie nutbagger cells have been infiltrated, start going down over the next couple of days. ...wonder if we'll ever hear about it?

Might here about some "skirmishes" here and there around the country, but may never know the true scope of what goes down with these fascism enthusiasts.

We're watching the news about Twitter blocking all of Trumps tweets and the retardedness of Trump and my wife is saying "some people are saying in-nog-ur-ation while we say in-nog-yer-ation"

Important things.

The amount of alcohol we've had had not influenced this discussion at all

Depends how many sympathizers they have in law enforcement and the military.

Things could get real ugly, real quick.

The move to ban their platforms also seems risky in what is a very tense time.

He’s trying to tweet from the POTUS account which Twitter warned him not to do and they are deleting the tweets.
Yep, just came to post this.
Being banned from Twitter includes using any other Twitter account as well.

The orange menaced COVID-19 accomplice serial killer is jonsing from not being able to use Twitter. I guess the small fingers on his small hands are shaking.

Honestly, Trump should have moved to Parler months ago. That's where his biggest fans are!

Yep ... Trump just tried the POTUS account. Twitter was watching. Tweet go poof.

Twitter has now banned Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Ron Watkins (admin of 8kun, f.k.a. 8chan).

Does he still have youtube?
