    Only those who are defined as domestic terrorists are being pulled as well as platforms that promote such behavior. This is wake up moment. These platforms are private corporations with RULES. I am sure you side with their righteous decision. Be blessed.

    I agree 100% aside with the righteous decision to pull support from these platforms who have made themselves so powerful they think they can change your nation.
    where were they calling out domestic terrorism when a federal courthouse was beseech nightly for over 100 days with violent terrorist attempting to burn it down?

    Where were they calling out domestic terrorism when three innocent people died in the center of the city where they set up an autonomous zone that was domestic terrorism and that was sedition. But instead of calling them out for what they are the Aiden in a better them by giving them direct lines of communication with one another.

    There’s an old saying that I believe rings true there are none so blind as those who will not see

    I Look at it this way:

    Big Tech = Christian Bakery

    and

    Donald Trump = Gay wedding Cake

    Well...
    Considering the lawsuits in the EU and the flood of lawsuits making their way through the American judicial system...it's not a bad idea.

    There's coming of a feeding frenzy of sharks on these oversized whales. Mostly from the blood in the water.

    Did you not read the OP?

    Free speech is related to government censorship, it has nothing to do with tech companies. It's like saying religious freedom is censored if a Christian church does not allow Muslims to conduct religious services in their facilities.

    Here’s your OP
    Since big tech firms, like Christian bakeries, are not capable of censoring free speech, then...?

    Your OP mentions the censuring [sic] of free speech. Free speech is not under attack here as there is no government involved. Big tech companies are not the government, so they are not censoring free speech.

    Real life: Suppose you want a gay wedding and come into my bakery to buy a wedding cake.

    Suppose I say "no, I won't sell you a cake".

    Do you, 'hislegacy', think Government should force me to sell you a cake, against my will?

    I'm really asking you. It's a serious and meaningful real question, and I'm very interested in your view. I want to hear what you think.

    If you think I have the right as a free-enterprise business to chose who I deal with in the free market, on my own, then we already agree.

    Consider a more complete analogy: if a newspaper refused to publish the statement of a politician, we'd not claim we can force the newspaper to publish the statement!

    The politician has real free speech, but not a right to force a business to serve him or publish him.

    That's "free enterprise" in my view. Freedom, the American way.

    You don't get to force me to do business with you if I decide your actions are harmful.

    You cannot force me to print you yard signs. You can't force me to sell you internet site services.

    Go and buy them from someone else people will say -- it's part of the American way of "free enterprise" -- freedom to follow our own conscience, within law that is aligned to the United State Constitution.

    yes, in fact they are indeed capable of it because of their monopoly on the venue. I can find dozens of bakeries, name where I can go when Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube censures the voices and Parler was driven off the net.

    Ok thank you

    If there was only one bakery available you would have a point. But this censure is system wide.

    if the speech is banned from Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube where can you go?

    Apple just eliminated the ability for Parler to function.

    I can go to any one of dozens of bakeries, where can I go when big tech has silenced, potentially, 75,000,000 Americans who voted for one candidate.

    And btw. I firmly believe there is only one person responsible for Trumps loss. And that is Trump.
