Stop the Double Standard
When people got upset over Islamic terrorism branding all Muslims as terrorists we were told not to generalize. I don't expect the same thing after Capitol riots. All Trump supporters and conservatives will suspect and banned just like Ariel Pink. While I am happy that airlines are thinking of safety. I fear the order to ban violent Trump supporters will be used as excuse to ban all Trump supporters especially those who refuse to give them their political leanings before buying a ticket
Parler gets banned by virtue of it size, when Facebook did not receive similar repercussions over similar content on their site. Facebook only did something about it when they were pressured to, anything about misinformation and hate content on the site. credit for saying they will reinstate it when they show they can effectively police themselves. That was the main concern I had about Parler's hands off approach . They say they have community guidelines but they should be made public to allay concerns. However, Is it fair to all Parler user support that content or the company itself supports without proof? Google's ban looks permanent.
I am tired of the hypocrisy shown when a conservative gets triggered over something vs when a liberal gets triggered over something Triggered liberal is ok but the triggered conservative is told to suck it up. Case in point Negative eactions to Backstreet Boy AJ Mclean's post in support of Biden and Harris were swiftly condemned by Lance Bass. However bandmate Brian Littrell's support of Trump justified all kind of vicious attacks against him and no one says anything about it . Lance For instance, the writer of the Decoding Backstreet blog says God punished Brian with losing his voice so he cannot state his political opinion . There was more but I found that one to be the most insulting because it belittle a problem that was very hard for him. Or someone calling a white supmercist just because of that announcement. Heck, it comments like that drove him off social media to begin with and probably drove him to Parler.
To be fair, I don't object to an objective statement of opinion, but personal insults and generalizations when you object to generalizations in other instances. This is not whataboutism. It is about consistency. Apply the same rules to everyone.
