Join Us On Parler. @keichri
Yesterday, Twitter suspended the account of President Trump, blaming him for protesters storming the Capitol building. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, in an unimaginable act of hubris, boldly proclaimed that Facebook would be preventing President Trump from using their platform until he was no longer President of the United States.
Parler CEO John Matze made a bold statement on his rapidly growing social media platform this morning:
If free speech truly is the enemy and we must restrict and censor the voices of people to keep our country safe then our country is already lost.
If one man’s voice is a threat to our nation but his holding of the presidential office is not, than it is apparent the powers of the presidency are less powerful than a single voice. Why should any of us settle to giving up our rights to free speech?
It’s clear that Facebook and Twitter believe the ends justify the means. They believe the American people are weak. They insult our founding fathers by suggesting Zuckerburg and Dorsey know what is best for us.
Parler is not an arbiter of truth. We believe in you. We believe you are wise enough to decide for yourself and trust that given access to all information we can self govern. The solution is clear. If you believe in free speech, and our founding principles of our republic, then we must liberate others by promoting free speech Parler.
You won’t find it on the Twitters with all those bird brains in charge. They are not a platform but a publisher. They don’t want free speech and as a byproduct, they must not like democracy.
A functioning democratic republic and democratic process requires discussion, debate and access to information. We the people must make our own choices, determine for ourselves what is true and false. We must be our own fact checkers. None of this can be done without free speech and free access to information.
We must liberate ourselves from their manipulation and dystopian tactics of control.
Matze spoke with Daily Caller about Parler and why they are the social media platform where people who are fed up with the censorship of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are flocking:
I’m proud to join @parler_app — a platform gets what free speech is all about — and I’m excited to be a part of it. Let’s speak. Let’s speak freely. And let’s end the Silicon Valley censorship. Follow me there @tedcruz! pic.twitter.com/pzUFvhipBZ
