You of course remember that after the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 there had to be a clampdown on speech to prevent or at least place some hurdles in front of the people planning the next attack. President Trump was kicked off Twitter and Facebook (where the majority of the attack was likely coordinated). Max Boot suggested President Biden should “reinvigorate the FCC” to slow the seditious talk coming from Fox News. Amazon Web Services, which hosted Parler, pulled the plug on the social media alternative after both the Apple Store and Google Play store pulled the app from their storefronts.

Thomas Chatterton Williams notes that a literary agent has lost her job because … she had accounts on Parler and Gab, which “distressed” the powers that be at her literary agency.

She even apologizes to anyone affected by this (no one) or offended by it (one person as far as we can tell).

Wow, look at how offensive that post is! “I’m now also posting on Parler. It’s a great platform with no censorship!” Oh, there’s censorship — it’s just from outside Parler.

Was that the most offensive tweet @YAWhispers could find? So she really was fired just for having an account on Parler.

She’d better be able to pull up some examples of “hate speech” or incitement from those Parler or Gab accounts.
