Las Vegas, Nevada – Parler, the people-driven free speech platform, today criticized Facebook and Twitter for blocking the sharing of an article in The New York Post that presented emails and other digital evidence about an alleged pay-to-play scheme between Hunter Biden, a Ukrainian state-owned energy company, and then-Vice President Joe Biden.
The New York Post, America’s fourth largest paper by circulation, published the piece today, but have been stymied in efforts to circulate the article on Facebook and Twitter.

Sohrab Ahmari, the Post’s opinion editor, posted a screen shot of Twitter blocking his attempt to share a link to the story and wrote, “This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war. I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden.”
Facebook’s Vice President for Communication Andy Stone, a long time Democrat Party operative, confirmed that the publisher was “reducing distribution” of the story.
“Once again, Facebook and Twitter have proven that they are agenda-driven publishers who want to control information and trample on our right to read what we want and decide for ourselves what to think,” said Parler CEO John Matze. “Americans have the right to read provocative stories and evaluate the evidence for themselves. In this case, we are talking about allegations of corruption at the highest levels of government, which should be exposed to the open air and sunlight, not swept under the rug by Tech Oligarchs.
“Americans deserve a free and open Public square—not technoauthoritarianism. It’s time to #Erasebook, #Twexit and join the movement at Parler.”
Parler was founded in 2018 and has a community of over 4 million people. The platform is committed to free speech, does not mine or sell data, and does not curate content based on politics or ideology. Parler continues to stand with the People and against Technoauthoritarianism.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
