Gab has a new rival, Parler aka Twitter 2.0. Conservative Inc.’s new tool to oppress free speech with propaganda and centralization.
Parler (from the French word for “to speak”) was founded by CEO John Matze in 2018, 2 years after Gab’s creation. Parler has been gaining a surge in usership after prominent mainstream conservative personalities, among them Brad Parscale*, Senator Mike Lee*, and activist Candace Owens*, signed up and publicized the network to their social media followers on other platforms.
Other notable users include conservative personalities banned from Twitter or other networks. A wave of names in conservative media and politics joined Parler in June 2020, including Donald Trump Jr.*, Candace Owens*, Dan Bongino*, Rudy Giuliani*, Katie Hopkins*, Alex Jones and Ted Cruz*
In accordance with its free speech policy, Parler adopts a laissez-faire approach to offensive speech, citing the FCC’s definition of obscenity to define the threshold for acceptable conduct. It is thus permissive of content that would be deemed offensive on other platforms.
In the left-leaning periodical New Statesman, Sarah Manavis described Parler as “synonymous with the alt-right” and “an echo chamber for hard-right views.” The New European called Parler “an echo chamber where only the shrillest sounds reverberate into the void.”
Parler is part of a list of social network platforms, including Minds, MeWe, Gab and BitChute, that are popular with people banned from mainstream networks such as Twitter, Reddit, YouTube and Facebook.
However, there’s has been criticism service for not being open-sourced and decentralized.
In June 2020 the conservative establishment, US President Donald Trump, and his family has teamed up together, endorsed, and promoted Parler making a resulting in a huge flood of users. Parler is making the Liberal Establishment and Legacy Media nervous.
Bigleappolitcs.com said, “Parler is emerging as the most viable alternative to Big Tech monopolist, showing that the free market may have a solution for Orwellian tyranny.”
That is pure propaganda based on a lie, Parler is has a nice interface, gaining userbase and an alternative tech/alt-media “at the moment” BUT NOT the most viable alternative to Big tech/Big media monopoly.
Gab and Btichute are the most viable alternatives against Big tech/Big media monopoly. because they’re open-source and decentralized, unlike Parler. Gab has an estimated number of 1.5 million users and Bitchute has 3 million. with over 4 million unregistered visitors.
Gab was the FIRST social media site to support free speech, the Conservative Establishment claims Parler was the first and they make a huge deal out of it. This is obviously FLASE, Gab came out in August 2016, Parler came out in August 2018.
Mainstream Neocon Don Bangino, who appears of Fox News regularly is not only on Parler but owns a financial stake of it. (We’re looking at you, Jack) Bangino via Twitter claims that Parler is the first real free speech social media platform. Obviously a lie. This shows you how sick ways NeoCons are for desperation. The NeoCons even hate Gab so much they pretend it doesn’t exist.
