Social Media Upstart Parler Accuses Facebook of ‘Digital Inquisition’ for Blocking Quarantine Protests
The social media upstart Parler is pushing back against monolithic tech giant Facebook for their unethical business practices, such as their suppression of rallies against quarantines across America and their unpersoning of so-called “dangerous individuals.”
“Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg demonstrate a disturbing pattern of extreme words to demonize and dehumanize others in order to justify their digital inquisition,” Parler wrote in an Apr. 21 press release.
“For a platform that claims to be a social network and aims for responsible citizenship, Facebook uses labels like “dangerous individuals” and purveyors of “harmful information” to vilify Americans in a twisted and Machiavellian way,” they added.
Parler is referencing Facebook’s arbitrary decision to label people such as Infowars host Alex Jones, Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer as “dangerous individuals” in order to boot them from their platform. Loomer is currently in court suing Facebook alleging the social media provider defamed her and violated her rights.
“Facebook had no basis for designating me as a dangerous individual, and when you examine their printed criteria for their dangerous individual policy, it is even more evident that I don’t meet any of the criteria, which includes being a terrorist and mass murderer,” Loomer told Breitbart News.
“I will continue this legal battle for as long as it takes until Facebook is held legally responsible for what they have done. If Facebook is truly innocent as they claim, then they should stop objecting to discovery and should immediately release the names and correspondence that occurred between everyone who was involved in designing and approving the “dangerous individuals and organizations” policy at Facebook, and its application to the select individuals it was applied to,” she added.
Parler is a social media platform that stands with Loomer and other purveyors of wrong-think in the digital age. They also stand with the protesters who are opposing unconstitutional overreach at the state level throughout America caused due to coronavirus quarantines.
“Facebook’s definition of good citizenship appears to include restricting people’s right to free speech, protest government policy and assemble freely. Zuckerberg seems to think Facebook’s role as a social network is to destroy the Bill of Rights and replace it with Facebook’s Terms of Service,” Parler said.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Facebook’s suppression of anti-quarantine rallies, as they use their immense monopoly power to foment panic and hysteria regarding coronavirus:
Facebook has deleted an organizing group tasked with putting together a rally against restrictive “stay-at-home” executive orders in the state of New Jersey.
According to conservative news site Save Jersey, activists were organizing an “Open New Jersey” rally over Facebook until their event was unceremoniously removed for supposedly violating the community standards of the social media giant. Facebook claimed the activists were “coordinating harm and promoting crime” with their non-violent protest against tyranny.
Primary organizer Angela DeVoe, who resides in Forked River, N.J, said she is not backing down due to Facebook’s Orwellian censorship of the event. Organizers will continue onward with the planned protest and will not let the tech monopoly stand in their way…
All the Big Brother censorship that Facebook can muster cannot stop the wave of patriotism that is sweeping the nation as a reaction to coronavirus-related overreach.
Parler is demanding that Facebook respect American values and immediately halt their Big Brother schemes to crush freedom of assembly.
“We call on Facebook to stop the Un-American censorship and allow free association. We at Parler will never stifle the views and actions of free people and welcome anyone, both pro or anti quarantine, to join us,” they wrote.
