We have a breaking news bombshell to share with you regarding the ongoing attempts by Big Tech to silence Conservatives.
Apple threatened to kick Parler off its App Store if the social media website did not ban content they deemed inappropriate.
Parler, an alternative to Twitter, has become extremely popular among conservatives. By the way, I have already made the jump to Parler and you can follow me by clicking here.
Parler founder John Matze told me on Starnes Country, that last week they received a notice on their account from Apple.
Matze said they were told they had to change their community guidelines so they reflected Apple’s. They were also told to remove certain kinds of individuals.
Matze said Apple did not say which kinds of individuals should be banned. However, Parler currently hosts accounts by Laura Loomer and Alex Jones.
“They said if we don’t change our community guidelines to match what they’d like – they were going to remove us from the app store,” he said. “I was pretty upset by this.”
Matze said Parler flat-out refused to comply with Apple’s demands and now they are unable to push updates to their app.
Later that evening Matze shared the contents of the conversation with a number of congressional lawmakers. Within 48 hours of that dinner meeting, the notice was removed from the account.
“I think it’s political and I think it’s bigoted,” he told me. “They don’t want conservatives communicating freely on a platform with people they like.”
