Big Tech took big action following the riots last month. Former President Donald Trump was a target, and this was a way of punishing everyone related to him.

Trump lost his power on Facebook and Twitter. Parler was de-platformed, too. Amazon blamed Parler for gathering Capitol rioters.

Truth is, Trump’s supporters are fed up with the current situation. These people want to be heard. That’s why most of them decided to use Parler. About 12 million people used it to speak their minds. Guess who didn’t like this…

Parler reappeared online in a form of a static page. Users are still waiting for its activation. Former Secret Service agent and podcaster Dan Bongino is one of the owners. He revealed details on the potential relaunch during an appearance on Sean Hannity Thursday.

“We’re shooting for Monday,” said Bongino. “Monday looks good. Fingers crossed.”

Here’s what The Daily Wire reported on the situation:

Earlier this week, John Matze announced in a memo sent to employees that he was terminated by the Parler board, saying “Over the past few months, I’ve met constant resistance to my product vision, my strong belief in free speech and my view of how the Parler site should be managed.”

After Matze’s announcement, Bongino “disputed” his claims.

Bongino shared a video on Ruble.

“I have no personal gripe against John, the CEO, at all; I want to be crystal clear,” the co-owner said in the video. “but John decided to make this public, not us. We were handling it like gentlemen.”

“We were the ones, in fact, fighting to get Parler back up. There was some really bad decisions made by people on the inside, and listen, this isn’t us airing dirty laundry. This is protecting a company that is absolutely committed to free speech, that I put the last year of my life into. Do you actually believe that someone else was on the side of free speech?”

The former NYPD officer revealed that the “relationship with Parler and the CEO did not work out because the CEO’s vision was not ours.”

“Our vision was crystal clear. We needed to get up and fight back, some terrible decisions were made in the past, that led us to getting put down by Amazon and others,” Bongino said.

According to him, Parler won’t make a compromise. This is a big warning for those who aim at Bongino’s site.

“We could have been (back) up in a week if we just would have bent the knee and followed all the ridiculous Apple edicts to become a heavy moderation site to the left of Twitter. That’s not what we’re gonna do. … We were a free speech site and will remain as such and that’s why it’s taken so long to get back up.”
