Tech giant Apple has apparently given Parler, the social network favored by conservatives, an ultimatum to implement a full moderation plan of its platform within the next 24 hours or face expulsion from the App store.

In an email sent this morning and obtained by BuzzFeed News, Apple wrote to Parler’s executives that there had been complaints that the service had been used to plan and coordinate the storming of the US Capitol by President Donald Trump’s supporters on Wednesday. The insurrection left five people dead, including a police officer.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property,” Apple wrote to Parler. “The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”

The report quotes Parler CEO John Matze as saying in response to Apple’s ultimatum, “We will not cave to pressure from anti-competitive actors! We will and always have enforced our rules against violence and illegal activity. But we WONT cave to politically motivated companies and those authoritarians who hate free speech!”

    • Exactly. This one sided crap is getting out of line!!!! If they do their own investigation they will see that certain groups of people-BLM n Maga wanna be were their to stir up crap! Supposedly, officers were told to leave that day by 10AM WTH! Something smells fishy from far lefties.

    • I did last year and haven’t missed it. Don’t use any play store apps, don’t use google for my browser, duckduckgo for searches, no FB, no twitter now, no IG, don’t miss the turmoil at all and LOVE not having those google ads in my face based off last searches…it feels like freedom for me.

  1. WTH! This is censoring the people! Guess we’ll have to go back to telephones or snail mail, or smoke signals! So ridiculous!

  2. Let’s just face it people, our country is finished. They have control of everything in this world. They are to powerful for us. God help us all.

    • It’s only “finished” if everyone like you believes it is and does nothing to learn from these lessons being thrown at us.

  3. Time for 75 million families to say enough! No more Apple products, no more FB, Twitter, Google, Instagram, AT&T etc. If they shut us off its a golden opportunity to start new industries and companies for us. Think about it, 3 to 4 times the size of Canada or 2 times the UK. We could become self-sufficient and equal to the leftists as an economic force.

    This cancel culture has to stop now.

    • Me neither. That’s why I came to DMLnews app. I just deleted Fakebook today. MSM is not saying anything. What is going on??!! Are we being shut off to the world??!! This is not right!! This is outright censorship!!

    • Ken are you using the app? I’m on parler with an android but I don’t use play store apps, don’t trust them and duckduckgo for search, and they have a browser now also

  4. They didn’t just pull the plug on Apple users, Parler is currently just way over capacity because of the mass migration to their platform. If the plug actually had been pulled, the app would not still be available, nor accessible from your iPhone. Don’t spread rumors, give Parler time to expand their server capacity

  5. No Suzanne they don’t, the president tried to stop the legislation that gave big tech a free pass but mctraitor and the rest overrode his veto.

  6. Trump was right again. These companies would be less bold if we could sue them.

    It’s a disgrace that Mitchy wouldn’t hold out to include removing the 230 protection these social media bullies have.

    • I Blame Mitchel & his Rinos for not listening to our President on Section 230 for limiting Big Techs! Our President was right again!!

  7. Well… I can’t even get on my Parler- got a message saying network error? Which I KNOW is not the case. I know this because I have streaming tv & it works fine. THIS is the reason why I voted the way I did- they can’t handle power… seems like people would’ve learned that lesson with Obamacare & all the obstruction 🙄

  8. Kevin Parler is given 24 hours to remove people who voice views different than biden or the ho has. If you join in conversations and disagree with the socialist agenda you will be banned. They will go after the big names first.

    • They removed the parler app from the play store, parler is up, I’m cruising there right now…just don’t use google apps, go to the dot com and make a bookmark, what’s the panic?

    • Just deleted my FB & never had Twitter!! They have unleashed the Sleeping Giant now that they have silenced millions of Americans like we are from German Death Camps!!
      AOC & the radical commies better watch their free speech

  9. Anna Parler is a free speech forum or it was. You may have heard of rumble, not sure. It was meant to be an alternative social network as people were tired of FB bull. These communists want full control of what you hear or see, big tech just kissed the Democrats asses and gave it to them.

  10. They are running scare!
    That’s why they want you off networking to keep you uninformed. Sorta like this corona virus lock down, squeezing out small business. Cluu is de up the establishment so you follow their instructions.. called control, no freedom, dependent on any crumbs they throw you way. Destroy America!

  11. If apple starts doing the same shit I will dump them in a heart beat.
    I just deleted my Facebook account and Monday morning will be selling all my apple stock.
    Actually I am going to sell all my stock holdings on Monday.
    The market is going to crash and I’m going to use all my funds to short all of these companies stocks.
    I am done. Fuck all of them.

  12. I will get rid of my I-phone. WTH is wrong with these big tech companies. Shut them doneI already signed up for Parlerand deplatformed my Twitter account months ago.

  13. By the end of the weekend there won’t be a single conservative view available online. The great reset will be incredibly easy to impose on America.

    If civil war isn’t close, America is done.

  14. I am on Parler and there wasn’t any planning going on for what happened! Twitter has BLM AND ATIFA THAT CALLED FOR IMPLANTS TO INFILTRATE THE TRUMP MARCH, DON’T DO ANY COUNTER PROTESTING! THERE ARE COPIES OF THEIR TWEETS! WHEN WILL THEY SEND THE MILITARY OUT TO START ROUNDING US UP!!!

  15. After close review of recent statements from the @realJackKennedy
    account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

    This determination is based on a number of factors, including:

    President Kennedy’s inflammatory statement that he is imposing a non-COVID-related quarantine, a/k/a cordon sanitaire or blockade, around Cuba, despite the fact that Cuba is a progressive, mostly peaceful society.

    President Kennedy’s fanciful allegations of “unmistakable evidence” that he claims has established the “fact” that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on this “imprisoned island,” a reference to Cuba that is disputed by experts.

    Pres. Kennedy’s fear-mongering claim that “the purpose of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the Western Hemisphere.”

    **Note: Our fact-checkers have determined this statement mostly false. They have given it three Pinocchios.**

    Pres. Kennedy’s baseless allegation that the sites in question are medium range ballistic missile sites. The president even went on to suggest, without evidence, that additional sites not yet completed appear to be designed for intermediate range ballistic missiles. He even made the preposterous claim that “jet bombers, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, are now being uncrated and assembled in Cuba, while the necessary air bases are being prepared.”

    Pres. Kennedy’s statements that “the cost of freedom is always high-but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender or submission” are interpreted as encouragement to those potentially considering violent acts against the Latinx nation of Cuba and its Progressive allies.

    The president’s indiscriminate use of the words “my fellow citizens” to describe some of his supporters is also being interpreted as support for those contemplating the commission of violent acts against the government and people of Cuba.

    In the context of the frightening events this week, we made it clear to the White House on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.

    Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.

    However—and this is a big HOWEVER—we made it clear going back years that First Amendment rights are not above our rules, and accounts cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.

    Therefore, Twitter has concluded that it has no other responsible course but to suspend Pres. Kennedy’s Twitter account permanently.

  16. It’s happening as we speak.
    WOW!! On to socialism much quicker than we thought.
    We MUST fight for our freedoms!!

  17. I have Samsung phone and parler is gone. I’m speechless. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. They are making us prepare for the worst. Get ready patriots.

    • Go to uberKRAKEN.com and sign up. Great site! No sensoring there. Love using the site! Also, Google censors about everything. Use DuckDuckgo.com. No search trail there. I use that too(duckduckgo.com ) instead of Google.

  18. I wonder who complained. As if we don’t know. I have never seen anything like that posted. More than likely it was antifa or Blm who posted it then complained about it My question is if they do how can we get together. Besides on Dlm app

  19. Maybe Apple should shut down all “political” sites in their app store, not just those they disagree with? Or better yet, ban all conservatives from buying their Apple products. 😄

  20. We are in for the fight of our lives. We will never give in to the tech tyrants, elites, and corrupted leaders, however. We will need to depend on and help each other more than ever. We will need to remain based in our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and our ingrained core of values. They are wasting no time in imposing their tyranny, as in the wholesale suspensions on Twitter, FB, now Parler and more. So you see how important your work is and how needed it is. I have admired and supported you since election 2016. I have supported President Trump since the beginning and will always support him. Thank you for your wonderful expression of appreciation to him. I do not know how, but I have faith that we on the side of right and justice will prevail. I know that your work and your strong value system will be an important help now that they have declared war on all truth and justice. God bless.

  21. Stop using the app, you know they’ve removed the app from the play store, what part of that makes you think the app wasn’t deactivated. Geez type the URL into search, it’s up, it’s there, stop the panic. Go old school before apps or have you forgotten how to do that

  22. But Apple doesn’t say a word about Facebook or Twitter using their platform to control the outcome of the elections by silencing the voices of millions of Americans
    This is disgusting 🤮 communistic behavior it totally resembles China
    There are people who’ve been working behind the dark curtains for a very long time
    I honestly believe they are soulless without conscience and forever evil minded
    There’s nothing good left in their shell
