    There are two social media apps in the App Store: “Parlor” or “Parler” which is the app in question?

    Edit: looks like the article, itself has the correct app name “Parler”.

    “Objectionable content”? ....smh.... Anyone can use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and numerous news apps and find “objectionable content”.

    We seem to have gone from “if you don’t agree with the content therein then don’t browse through it”

    to

    “I don’t like it and I don’t like the people who do so let’s get rid of both”.

    Then you are okay with the planning of the coup on that app? They were planning on capturing and hanging the sitting Vice President. Speech is free as long as it’s not fomenting a coup or sedition.
    I don’t even like Pence, but I don’t hate anyone enough that I want them dead. Have you been on Parler? The hate of minorities and liberals is pretty scary to see. I’m hoping most of it is keyboard warrior talk, but after seeing January 6th I’m not too sure anymore. I think the Republican Party was taken in by a con man who is just in it for himself, but I don’t want to kill them or have them come into harms way.

    I think I am probably in favour of hanging anybody who actually WANTS to become a politician in the first place.... or at least a lengthy “re-education course” down a coal mine or road sweeping... something cheap and useful anyway !

    No one was planning anything. Some were voicing their anger, but no on was planning anything. I can only imagine where you heard that.

    Okay. I’ll play along. Apple is threatening to ban an app for “objectionable content”. If people were planning to do evil over the phone, should the phone company be punished for it? If people rented a clubhouse to plan something heinous, should the owner of the clubhouse be punished?


    Now back to the issue at hand.....The point is this - people are going to hear and see things they don’t agree with. Instead of getting all bent out of shape about it, understand there are viewpoints and experiences different from yours and always will be.

    Agreed. And being idealistic, it is my prayer that people would manage to find a way to begin a dialogue. But there is so much anger and hostility coming from all sides that it will take awhile before that happens.

    When people’s voices/concerns/fears are ignored long enough or their viewpoints have been dismissed and ridiculed long enough then an eruption of some sort will eventually occur.

    Now before anyone takes my comments as being in favor of what occurred at the Capital building, let me nip that in the bud now. What we are witnessing are the results of the political divide and conquer tactic that has been going on for decades....in my opinion, of course...

    That’s all based on lies. Give one example of a coup being planned.

    Ok folks, let's remain respectful and civil here. We are not going to get political. If you want to do that, please take it to the lounge. Thanks.
