The ongoing social media purge of conservatives and Trump supporters went into overdrive this weekend when in a coordinated effort, every major tech company banned President Trump.
Not only was the sitting president banned while such figures as Iran’s ayatollah was still able to tweet but Big Tech used the opportunity to take out Parler, an alternative to Twitter that had seen a major influx of Republicans including top political figures.
When monopolies Google and Apple removed the Parler app from their stores, CEO John Matze was defiant in his refusal to bow to demands for increased censorship which then led to Amazon terminate its hosting services.
According to Matze:
“They made an attempt to not only kill the app, but to actually destroy the entire company,” he said. “And it’s not just these three companies.”
In retrospect, Matze may regret using Amazon as a host given that mega-billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos has been an outspoken hater of Trump and that the company’s government contracts could be canceled by an incoming Biden regime but nobody could have expected that such censorship could happen in America.
Now some Republicans who have done nothing to restrain the power of the far-left tech oligarchs and their abuses of power are having a change of heart, one of them is Rep. Devin Nunes who is calling for a racketeering investigation into the grand poobahs of Silicon Valley.
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., called for a racketeering investigation on Sunday following Amazon, Apple and Google’s decisions to suspend the alternative social media platform Parler after Wednesday’s U.S. Capitol riot.
During an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Nunes said Amazon, Apple and Google’s suspension of Parler is “clearly a violation'” of antitrust, civil rights and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which is a federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.
“I don’t know where the hell the Department of Justice is at right now or the FBI,” the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence told host Maria Bartiromo.
Nunes argued that “there should be a racketeering investigation on all the people that coordinated this attack on not only a company, but on all of those like us.
“I have 3 million followers on Parler,” he added. “Tonight I will no longer be able to communicate with those people and they’re Americans.”
However, it may be too late for anything to be done now with the House Of Pelosi being occupied with another sham impeachment and the loss of control of the U.S. Senate after the Georgia runoff elections.
The time to have acted has likely already passed, especially if Democrats pack the Supreme Court and award statehood to Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico as many are expecting and they have the wind in their sails after the exploitation of last week’s chaos in the nation’s capital.
