November 3, 2020 (NewsBusters) — The CEO of growing social media platform Parler warned Americans on CNBC about Big Tech’s Orwellian censorship against President Donald Trump that will continue right into election night. 

During Monday's edition of CNBC’s Squawk Box, co-anchor Joe Kernen asked Parler CEO John Matze about what Twitter will potentially do if Trump speculates an election win. Kernen asked: “If President Trump were to say something that Twitter didn’t like about the results” of “the election and whether he was winning or not, do you think Twitter, at that point, would decide ‘Okay, we’re finally going to censor’?” After Kernen conceded that Twitter has already “done it a little bit before,” he asked Matze: “[D]o you think they would decide: ‘We’re not going to publish that’?” Matze responded: “I think they would do it going forward.”

Twitter just deplatformed President Trump premanently! And, other conservatives, including General Flynn and Sidney Powell, were also deplatformed.

Conservatives, Christians and freedom-loving Americans of all political persuasions must now take a decision to preserve their free speech AND their ability to peaceably assemble by dumping Twitter and Big Tech, and by finding other good alternatives to communicate with each other and share their opinions.

Please SIGN our petition-pledge to Dump Twitter and Big Tech, and take back your freedom of speech and privacy. [CLICK HERE for our "Goodbye Google" resources page to find good alternatives to Google!]

When you use Twitter or Facebook to communicate, or Google to search for something online, these companies can stifle your ability to share your thoughts and opinions and manipulate your search results, threatening your privacy, your freedom of speech, and even our democracy.

Evidence suggests that Twitter and Facebook's 'community guidelines' are selectively enforced against conservatives and Christians, while Google rigs their search algorithms to direct traffic away from conservative and Christian websites, effectively choking traffic to those sites.

Simply put, Twitter, Facebook and Google (who owns YouTube) appear to be actively suppressing access to pro-freedom, pro-family and pro-life news and opinion.

Don't contribute to this assault on democracy: Stop using Twitter, Facebook and Google as your default social media platforms and search engine! [CLICK HERE to find a good alternative to Google.]

To repeat: a few liberal and completely unaccountable computer programmers in Silicon Valley are dictating what we do and do not see in our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and in our Google searches.

We, here, at LifeSite, also recently had our Twitter account suspended by the company over "misgendering" a man who claims to be a woman.

LifeSite has also experienced a fall-off in Google search-related traffic since the company updated its search algorithms at the beginning of May.

And, since the November election, Twitter and Big Tech appear to have dramatically INCREASED their censorship of conservatives and Christians as the President Trump disputed the results of the election and when evidence of election fraud began to mount.

Now, it seems likely that they are trying to cut-off conservative leaders (like President Trump) from conservatives on the ground, and effectively exclude us from the national conversation.

But, this tactic will not work. Because Twitter, Facebook and Google are not the only game in town! There are a good number of excellent alternatives which we list in our 'Goodbye Google' Resources page.

The great irony is that, while Twitter, Facebook and Google executives talk a lot about maintaining freedom of speech and diversity, in fact, these hypocrites are ATTACKING free speech point-blank!

This kind of manipulation poses a lethal threat to our democracy, but as we see so clearly now, Twitter and Big Tech have shown no hesitation in excluding conservatives and Christians from the public square.

So, at this point, the only way to stop Twitter, Facebook and Google is to quit using their platform.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to pledge to stop using Twitter and Big Tech. Then, please CLICK HERE to find alternative search engines and social media platforms. Thank you!

For extra measure, Matze warned that this kind of censorship would not just be exclusive to Twitter, and will be applied more generically across other Big Tech platforms. Matze noted: “The big thing that they’re talking about right now on Facebook, Twitter, as well as, I believe — YouTube has said this too (I’m not certain on that one) — is that they don’t want any presidential candidate speculating that they won the election online on that night.” 

Matze assessed that this was “scary.” He contended that whether it’s Trump or Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, “both of them should have a right to speculate all they want on election night.” Matze said that his own platform would not be policing such content.

Earlier in the segment, Kernen asked Matze about comments he made about “Twitter’s future” if it continues its treacherous path of censorship of news outlets and posts it disagrees with.

Matze assessed from a user-trust perspective that this behavior could potentially take a sledgehammer to Twitter’s user growth numbers:

If they keep kicking people off for having views they don’t like, and they’re curating which news sources are allowed on, it’s not going to reflect well on their user growth numbers.”

The New York Post, a 219-year-old newspaper, had been blocked from its Twitter account for over seventeen days for publishing a bombshell story claiming to expose the alleged corruption behind Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
