Facebook Played Biggest Role in Capital Riot… Why Are They Untouchable?

It’s been more than a month since the app stores of Google and Apple joined forces with Ama­zon Web Ser­vices to knee-cap an upstart com­peti­tor, Par­ler. The stat­ed rea­son­ing was Parler’s lack of con­tent mod­er­a­tion poli­cies, which Apple, in par­tic­u­lar, claimed led to Parler’s use as a forum to “plan, coor­di­nate, and facil­i­tate the ille­gal activ­i­ties in Wash­ing­ton DC on Jan­u­ary 6, 2021.”

This rea­son­ing was con­fi­dent­ly repeat­ed across the cor­po­rate press. “The Capi­tol mob began orga­niz­ing … on plat­forms like Par­ler and Gab,” Vox assert­ed. Plan­ning for the “mob vio­lence that descend­ed on the U.S. Capi­tol … took place open­ly on web­sites pop­u­lar with far-right con­spir­a­cy the­o­rists,” Nation­al Pub­lic Radio pro­claimed. Face­book shut down Stop the Steal groups, said The New York Times, so plan­ning moved to Par­ler and Gab.
