Catholic League president Bill Donohue said Monday that Big Tech’s censoring of Parler is “the most serious assault on freedom of speech we have ever seen by private companies in American history.”
Amazon, Google, and Apple are not silencing those who actually promote violence but rather “conservative voices in general,” Dr. Donohue notes.
More generally, the left is attempting to use last Wednesday’s riots as an excuse to pillory the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, Donohue suggests, rather than punishing the actual perpetrators of the violence.
“They are a true menace to democracy: they are using Trump as a pretext to stifle the free speech of decent Americans,” he states.
The storming of the Capitol building is also being irresponsibly exploited by those on the left to specifically indict Christians, Donohue observes.
Social media platform Parler is now offline after Amazon Web Services suspended the site,
