Who is pulling big tech’s chain?

Who in “our” government is calling the shots for big tech? Pelosi?

My wife, a conservative and ain’t shy about it, got kicked off twit. Parler is getting its platform yanked from under them and google and apple stopped their apps.

They are trying their level best to isolate conservatives. I smell the stench of desperation.

Pee-louse-ee is not sharp enough. I don't think it is the G.

I just read that Amazon is going to shut down the servers Parler uses to communicate through on Sunday night at midnight. They say they have a back up plan but might take a week to re-establish the site.

The most massive and corrupt government and private industry in the world is about to silence the people...somehow I don’t see this ending the way they think it will.

Parler isn't the only escape route (that it is suggested that it is is suspicious in itself). I like Gab better because it's easier to use. There is also Minds.

I use Viber at work, it’s encrypted and I doubt raises to suspicious levels.

My wife has her Asian network Vine to use.

The first thing to happen is going to be someone taking out big tech mobile communication anyways so it’s not going to matter who you used, the platforms and cloud based servers will all die.

My wife reports that apple is going to disable the emergency broadcast system on their phones. Sounds dubious, but all the rest that’s going on would have sounded dubious a few months ago as well.
I got a notice to update my phone tonight, coincidence? I don’t know, but suspicious to me.

I'm on Parler and just got on Gab but it's so slow because a lot of people who were kicked off Twatter are going on there. Lol I was silenced on Twatter, but set up a new account. It's hilarious on there, they suspend accounts that don't jive with their philosophy or "woke" behavior. Social media, all controlled by Stashi trash tactics and they have no problem silencing free speech. What a mess it all is right now.

I’ve been telling people who are concerned to focus on real world relationships with people in their geographical area.
Develop those relationships and learn who is trustworthy/competent.

Enough connection remains to disseminate truthful information over larger distances.
The answer to this centralized power grab is decentralization of the people.

Big tech and the left can cover their eyes and plug their ears all they want.
The common ideas and belief systems which they so abhor will remain.

As it’s always been, follow the money.
