(ConservativeUnit)- On Wednesday, Democrats once again impeached President Donald Trump after inaccurately claiming he incited violent riots on Capitol Hill on January 6. Democrats and Big Tech also wrongly accused Parler, a social media platform that doesn’t silence users based on their political opinion, of facilitating the violence.
But also on Wednesday, the Associated Press revealed how federal authorities discovered that the deadly riot was actually coordinated in part on Twitter.
Cue the silence from the Democrats…
According to the Associated Press, Defense and National Guard officials found that violent rioters coordinated their plans to storm the Capitol Building in part on Twitter, a platform that often silences conservatives under the false pretence of preventing violence.
“Defense and National Guard officials, including McCarthy, have said in interviews over the past several days that they were told by DC that they believe the protests would be similar to the ones on Nov. 14 and Dec. 12,” the AP reported.
“And they said that federal law enforcement authorities said that there was activity on Twitter, but that they weren’t expecting the level of violence they ultimately saw last Wednesday,” the report continued.
The news that the coordination of the attack took place on Twitter is important for several reasons, but perhaps most notably because it exposes the double standard from Big Tech companies that host social media apps and websites. Apple and Google recently removed Parler from their app stores, blocking smartphone users from downloading the alternative social media platform.
Then, in the following days, Amazon revoked Parler’s access to its Amazon Web Services servers, meaning the site was taken offline complete.
Professor Eugene Kontorovich of George Mason University posted on Twitter how Feds said that Capitol attack was coordinated in part on Twitter, showing that Amazon, Apple, and Google all treated Parler differently than the major social media platforms.
