In an entirely expected development, media hit pieces against pro-free speech social network Parler began after the site attracted a ton of new followers.
The website’s engagement levels have skyrocketed in recent weeks as many more people choose to transition away from Twitter, which has become a cesspit of censorship and a platform for left-wing extremists to engage in the mob harassment and doxxing of conservatives.
Numerous members of Congress in the United States and Conservative MPs in the UK have also started signing up to the network, prompting anxiety amongst Silicon Valley that Parler could eventually become a genuine competitor. The site also hosts popular figures banned by Big Tech, including Congressional candidate Laura Loomer and Katie Hopkins.
Unlike Twitter and Facebook, which have become notorious for banning users and removing content at the behest of organized left-wing mobs, Parler’s terms of service are in line with the FCC’s definition of obscene content, which allows for “offensive” posts so long as they’re of literary, artistic, political, or scientific value. This has panicked the mainstream media, who have worked in concert with Big Tech over the last few years to deplatform prominent voices who dare to dissent against the current takeover of society by ‘woke’ radicals.
A hit piece in the UK Independent tries to connect Parler to Gab, using guilt by association by suggesting Gab was responsible for mass shootings (a charge never leveled against Facebook despite numerous mass shootings being live streamed on there).
