Long understood to be a an unreliable resource by serious academics, journalists, and bloggers, Wikipedia has more recently gained a broader reputation for leftwing bias. Indeed, one of its co-founders notes that Wikipedia entries on socialism and communism are little more than propaganda and that he is launching a competing free-speech encyclopedia site.

GoDaddy told The Hill that it has initiated an investigation into some sites it hosts or for which is acts as internet Registrar for links to the Capitol Hill riot after a report by the Soros-connected partisan group Accountable.US. It's not just supposedly violent groups targeted. Political groups such as Turning Point USA are targetted as well in the pressure campaign against GoDaddy.

Despite the attempts of the cabal of Amazon Web Services, Google, Apple, and many other high tech monsters to take it down, Parler has been brought back to life. It's unclear if Parler is completely back, but I just logged in and the Legal Insurrection page is up and running and we still have almost 400,000 followers. Our prior "parleys" have not populated yet, but I assume that will take time.

The coordinated Big Tech deplatforming of Parler is looking more and more suspect. Last month, I reviewed every arrest report the DOJ had made available at that time, and the overwhelming number of social media posts cited in these reports were those posted on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. There was barely any mention of Parler.

In a bizarrely congratulatory, even boastful, article entitled "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election," Time sketches a chilling portrait of a "well-funded cabal" of Democrats, activists, the media, Never Trumpers, unions, Big Tech, and Big Business who conspired to ensure that President Trump lost his reelection bid and was unsuccessful in his efforts to challenge the results.

The takedown of Parler was purportedly based on its unique role in fomenting hate online relating to its alleged outsize role in the events at the Capitol on January 6th.  Having spent a couple days weeding through the DOJ's published arrest reports, I found little mention of Parler, but plenty of alleged criminal conduct referencing Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, in the charging document.
