New-ish "free speech" app, Parler

I’m also OK with deplatforming cannibals…

Cool. Just think that needs to be made clear. I’m not sure everyone on this thread realizes it.

Why? For real?

To not have repeats of the Armin Meiwes incident

Then we’d miss out on performances like this.

Not to me and mine.

You seem to think that I hate Nazis as a matter of principle. I do, of course, as should any decent, rational human being. But I also hate them on a specific, personal basis. And even if I didn’t, I’d still be in favor of killing them, because I regard them as enemy combatants and as such, they pose a clear and present danger to my country and people. In war, you kill the enemy.

Anyway, I seem to be wandering off topic. Sorry.

Couple of new articles


Should we have a pool for when Parler first bans a liberal troll?

They already have.

Warning: somewhat NSFW in the link. [Edit by What Exit?]

Good find. A snip from that article:

… There’s a lot more as well. Parler seems to be banning a bunch of people. And it has the right to do so . Which is great. But what’s not great is the site continues to pretend that it’s some “free speech alternative” to Twitter when it’s facing the same exact content moderation issues.

Fox has falsely claimed “fair and balanced” for years and continues to fool the rubes. Parler is of course no different. When lies are at the very center of what you stand for, of course truth in labeling is nowhere to be found.

I thought Parler (seriously, Republicans? Perhaps you should call it Freedom Twitter) was little more than a messaging platform for the Kremlin and their election disrupting bots. Has that really not be proven yet?

Either way, I’m looking forward to glancing over Don Jr.'s shoulder and seeing a Ted Cruz post sandwiched between a fetish pic of Fallwell Jr. and a furry porn pic. Go Freedom Twitter!

Go Fritter!

Make mine apple with extra cinnamon. :wink:


Make mine pumpkin.

Make it your damn self. And I’m not your pumpkin.

Baby, don’t be like that. You’ll always be my pumpkin.

Their kids and grandkids will continue to post baby photos on Facebook. I doubt many will go anywhere.

I’ve even seen some fooled into thinking a Facebook page for Parler members was actually Parler.

These are the ultimate safe spaces for people who have made fun of people who use safe spaces.

TIL: None other than Rebekah Mercer is one of the co-founders and the big money behind Parler. For those who may not know, Rebekah is an extreme far-right nutjob, the daughter of billionaire and far-right nutjob Robert Mercer. They are both quietly but determinedly behind a lot of far-right US politics, virtually all of it behind the scenes and much of it involving dark money, with a political philosophy that makes Charles Koch by comparison seem like Bernie Sanders’ more liberal brother. They initially supported Ted Cruz, then switched to Trump and became major factors in his 2016 election.
