“Free Speech” Social Media Platform, Parler, Already Banning Conservatives for “Hate Speech”

The fledgling social media wannabe giant, Parler, has repeatedly flaunted their “free speech” stance claiming that you can “speak freely and express yourself openly, without fear of being ‘deplatformed’ for your views.” Nonetheless, the tech outlet is already banning people for “hate speech.”

In January, Parler was cut off from its previous web hosting provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS) after allegedly allowing violent material preceding the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Despite the overwhelming evidence that much more “violence” was platformed by Twitter and Facebook, the two monopolistic media giants that control the world’s speech in the public square, Parler was shut down because of its conservative leanings.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

Parler’s new hosting provider is SkySilk which boasts their own terms of service and the right to refuse service to any website which hosts “racist, pornographic, hateful material,” or, even more concerning, “those which create customer service or abuse issues for us.”

SkySilk’s CEO said in a statement that he believes Parler is “taking the necessary steps” to alleviate these issues while also noting that SkySilk “does not advocate nor condone hate, rather it advocates the right to private judgment.”

And, apparently, Parler is taking these “necessary steps,” as well-known gay activist Milo Yiannopoulos has already been de-platformed by Parler after posting such statuses as “who wants to gay bash with me this weekend?” and “I mean this with all the Christian charity and compassion in the world – homosexuals should be hanged.”

Yiannopoulos then took to gab to complain.

Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of gab noted that since Parler doesn’t own their own servers — they way gab owns their own — then they will always be at the mercy of other people’s “terms of service.”

While Yiannopoulos is certainly no true conservative — and definitely not a Christian — it should be noted that any speech that doesn’t fully align with the leftist Democrat party narrative will always be deemed “hate speech” by those who control the narrative. Free speech, no matter how much you disagree with what is being said, will always come with a hefty price tag.
