On Friday Apple threatened Parler, the free speech alternative to Twitter unless they enact Draconian policies demanded by the Big Tech oligarchs.
Because of Big Tech censorship, Parler is now the fastest growing social media company.
Apple followed through with its threats and suspended Parler indefinitely on Saturday citing threats of violence on the platform.
Google deplatformed Parler on Friday and Amazon is currently threatening to take down Parler as well.
Parler CEO John Matze posted a message on Saturday night blasting Big Tech tyranny and their double standards:
Apple will be banning Parler until we give up free speech, institute broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook and we become a surveillance platform by pursuing guilt of those who use Parler before innocence.
They claim it is due to violence on the platform. The community disagrees as we hit number 1 on their store today. The same day “Hang Mike Pence”, a disgusting violent suggestion, was trending nationally on Twitter. Displaying the horrible double standard Apple and their big tech pack apply to the community.
Apple, a software monopoly, provides no alternatives to installing apps on your phone other then their store. We do not own our phones, Apple simply rents them to us. Apple, Google and the rest of the anti-competitive pack of big tech tyrants coordinate their moves and work together to stifle competition in the marketplace.
More details about our next plans coming soon as we have many options.
Bye apple.. so sad..
I will not by another Apple device until Parler is back in the store and active.
Demand Apple to Add Back Parler on App Store
This is what people are posting on Parler: “Lets get our personal affairs in order. Prepare our weapons, and then go get’em. Lets hunt these cowards down like the Traitors that each of them are.” I find this chilling and more like Al Qaeda than Americans.
Thank you for having this way to get it done.
Apple has forgotten that we pay money for their products. The censorship must end, or we simply use another product! Put Parler back where you found it, its that simple!
I will NOT buy apple products until apple this is sorted
Freedom of speech is being attacked
I support this petition
Anyone with half a brain can see this is discriminatory behavior. Blatant censorship and hypocrisy in the company’s actions against only those of a certain viewpoint is criminal! Joseph McCarthy would be pleased to see his bullying tactics are alive and well today, until he realized it was being used against his own belief system. So, dress up a pig and call it your prom date if you like, but the same bad practice is crap no matter what you choose to call it.
