Carlson slams Big Tech’s ‘coordinated’ attack on Parler: ‘Baldly illegal’

According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, some major tech companies could soon find themselves in legal trouble over their actions in the wake of last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The host of Tucker Carlson Tonight devoted the opening segment of his Fox News program Monday to an extended monologue detailing what he called a “coordinated” and “baldly illegal” attack on public discourse perpetrated by Big Tech, among other businesses that Carlson says are “fully aligned” with the left.

“Corporations, which are now more powerful than they have ever been, ever, are colluding with one another and with the political class to silence any opposition,” he charged, according to a transcript from Breitbart.

“Corporations are fully aligned. This has never happened in our country. They are fully aligned with a political party,” Carlson added. “How much distance between the Biden campaign and Google, the most powerful company in the world? Right around none.”

“They were shut down anyway”

Among the grievances expressed by Carlson on Monday were moves by big businesses to silence, fire, or otherwise refuse to serve individuals and organizations alike whose political views don’t align with theirs.

“In the past five days, PayPal, keep in mind, is supposed to be a payment processor, not a political party or a law enforcement agency. PayPal suspended the account of a group that paid for Trump supporters to travel to Washington last week,” Carlson said, according to Breitbart. “Now, it’s not clear that any of these people participated in illegal acts. We do not know. But they were shut down anyway for their political views,” he added.

Other companies to draw Carlson’s ire included record labels who dropped artists after they were spotted at a rally for the president earlier on the day of the Capitol riot, as well as big names like BlueCross BlueShield, JPMorgan Chase, Marriott, and Citigroup — “not small companies,” Carlson noted, but they “have all cut off donations to Republicans who objected in any way to this year’s election results.”

According to Breitbart, the Fox host argued that moves like these, combined with the rhetoric of Democrat lawmakers like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), “send a very clear message” that those who oppose the left’s ideology “have no right to speak or to fly or to use banks or to hold jobs.”

“What’s next?”

Near the end of his monologue, Carlson turned his attention specifically to Big Tech and their bid to squash Parler, a newer social media site that sprung up in opposition to Twitter, ostensibly to provide a platform for free speech. Carlson reported:

This weekend, Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple openly coordinated set their sights on the social media app, Parler, and booted it off the internet — and not just them. According to CEO of Parler, John Matze, quote, “Every vendor from text message services to e-mail providers to our lawyers ditched us on the same day.”

“Parler committed no crimes,” Carlson insisted, as Breitbart reported. “So why [is Parler] gone? Well, conservatives speak to each other on Parler and that’s dangerous. So they were banned,” he surmised.

It’s a move the Fox host says is not just unethical, but “also illegal, baldly illegal.” Carlson explained Monday:

The coordination between these companies violates the most basic tenet of antitrust law. When monopolies conspire to suppress competition and hurt consumers, it is not even a close call; they are breaking the law.

“No one thought that Jeff Bezos could silence an entire political movement in an instant simply because he thought they were expressing inconvenient views. But last night, that’s exactly what Jeff Bezos did, and Parler went dark,” Carlson added. “Whoa, what’s next? You will likely find out soon.”

  1. Who gave the orders to remove the barriers just before the insurrection? Why was there so few police there? Why wasn’t the National Guard deployed? Why didn’t the order to protect the capital when the FBI knew of potential problems days before? Why didn’t the news organizations report what Trump said at the rally? He never incite for violence it was the opposite and those news organizations should lose there title as NEWS, they are a lying arm of the biggest criminal organization the DemocRAT Politicians and they are the largest because they control many brews organizations the first time in our history and they became that what they did to our voting g!

  3. Way to many “whys”. I likened them to “the Mob “. I like the description, Criminal organization.” Demacrats. ). Joe Biden and his thugs, are being told what to do by a powerful group, outside of politics. Many international Billionaires. We are no longer, A Free/Republic. “ He who has the Gold, makes the Rules.🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛

  4. The DC riots were all coordinated by commie/dems, fbi (which knew of attack and did nothing to stop), jo and and ho and many others. notice jo and ho’s effort to unify by arresting and charging all their enemies kinda fall short of peace.

  5. Who is in charge of the Capital Police? The House of Representatives. Who is in charge of The House of Representatives? Nancy Pelosi. Who very quickly had an “insurrection” impeachment proposal ready to be considered? Nancy Pelosi. Does this make you think about the integrity of this situation?

  6. I try not to miss Tucker’s 1 hour program.He is the best on Fox then Laura,Hannity.Also switch to Lou Dobbs or record to watch later. This sham of an election will go down in history but will the truth really be told how the democrats used every illegal way to steal 2020 from President Trump.

    1. It certainly will go down in history as the crookedest election ever but they are erasing history so no one will really know.

  7. It’s a very sad time in our country… from Covid to all of the election fraud and now the elimination of free speech, we are in grave danger and may very well lose our freedom if it continues. The moderate liberals best stand up and join the conservative group to turn this around.

  8. I’m not talking about the 30s and 40s, but right now, the citizens of North Korea actually believe that the only thing between them and that evil American empire, that would detain them all in extermination camps, is their leader, Kim Jung Un.
    That’s what a controlled media does!

  9. NONE OF THESE IMPEACHMENTS SHOULD STAND THEY WERE INSTIGATED BY A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL THAT USED PERSONAL HATRED FOR A PRESIDENT TO FILE 2 FALSE CHARGES . SHE SHOULD BE OUTEST FROM SPEAKERSHIP AND CONGRESS FOR THE DAMAGE SHE HAS DONE TO OUR COUNTRY

    1. She needs to be deported. She has cost the American people millions. She’s corrupt and unworthy of such a position.

  10. “Good noW!”®,B”H. The pattern was clear at Charlotteshoaxville – 1. lay a trap (i) conservatives are coming, give them permission & space in Democrat controlled area.
    (ii) remove all police & protective services
    (iii) use under-cover ANTIFA to invade space & then cause damage
    (iv) Dems call “you did it” and use MSM, or SM blockout to dominate conversation, create doubt, confuse the public, and blame or impeach before there’s any chance to investigate!
    (v) Democrats succeed in covering their own crimes by blaming Donald Trump who has given power the people & exposed the SWAMP, who want to go on in power to steal from the people, and take the people’s attention off the fact they hoaxed the steal from 2016, and want to prevent his re-election having stopped his second term, because they can’t do anymore cheating than they’ve done this time around, even more than before, and couldn’t bear a second defeat, now or later!
    It’s time to take over TWITTER – jail Dorsey, FB & Bezos & his wife, & Google, sponsors, ?Clooney, until the TRUMP platform is up & running, then close them down completely, & immediately freeze their funds, CEO’s, as well and any linked accounts, before President Trump leaves office!

  11. I really wish there were an up vote icon on this because I agree with almost everything posted. Ronald Reagan said so well, “Nancy Pelosi is evil.” I found it so convenient for her and Democrats to have a so called riot at the exact moment when the election was in debate. It looked stagged to me. I heard what Trump said and at no time did he say invade the Capitol.
