"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go."
Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show and a major investor in Parler, appeared today on Glenn Beck's YouTube channel.
Bongino ensured Parler users that the app would be up and running as soon as this weekend. He said that while Twitter "discriminates against conservatives," Parler will continue to welcome conservatives and progressives alike "when we're up...hopefully, this weekend."
Bongino went on to elaborate about the antitrust lawsuit Parler brought against Amazon for forcing them offline.
"Parler's not done... Once we win, this is going to be a seminal moment, when we hit these companies hard, because we're not done."
The investor pledged to Beck and his viewers that he will stop at nothing to vindicate Parler from the coordinated attack from the big tech giants.
"I said on Fox the other day, and I'll say it to you again: I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go."
"I know what matters now. And it's not money. And it's not houses," Bongino continued. "It's the ability to exist in a free country where you can express your ideas freely and not worry about being thrown out of your job and candidly put in jail."
Bongino also said there needs to be a "parallel economy" created, an alternative economic and technological system available for citizens who believe that tech giants like Google, Apple, and Amazon have too much of a monopoly on the current internet and financial structures.
"I've been warning about this on my show now for five years, where I said–I think it was five years ago, the first time I used the term which I used to this day–a parallel economy," Bongino said. "[S]adly we live in a country right now where we as conservatives, libertarians, and, candidly, sane democrats...have to construct a parallel economy."
The Parler investor said this parallel economy must include "everything from servers, to internet infrastructure, to financial institutions. And I'm not talking about a conservative [only] economy, what I'm talking about is a free speech economy."
