Isn’t it good that Liberal companies shut down the free speech app Parler?

Sharing ideas, especially conservative ideas is dangerous. We need social media to censor conservative views and need to shut down any site which doesn’t do so.   We are on the right track.  Do you agree?

    It wasn't free speech. Nobody could go on Parker and say the planned on shooting up a school. They would be arrested and according to Republicans their free speech violated.

    It's called capitalism. Private companies can choose or not choose to work with whoever they want. If glorifying racism, rape, antisemitism and violence are conservative ideas then those are indeed dangerous ideas. 

    Parler found a new host so what are you crying about?

    The first amendment includes exceptions f/ how courts decided victims have rights too. It's all about common sense. Inciting violence causes physical harm and why it's an exception.

    People were sharing Conservative ideas long before smartphones or the internet.

    Your concern is that you compare fear inspired notions, disdain discourse, and actuation of savagery with "moderate thoughts." The large web-based media locales, which so since quite a while ago permitted such chat on their gatherings, have at last taken in their exercise. They will at this point don't permit intermediary destinations which utilize their specialized offices to do likewise.

    Absolutely.  Non-violent forms of dissent are likely to prevent violence, which obviously is not a Liberal goal.

    No, that's an insane viewpoint to have. Free speech is free speech. It doesn't matter that you don't like it. Anything else is oppression

    Yes - censorship is a good thing.  Ask any communist.
