The Problem with Parler: How a Free Speech App Turned Into Anything But

full of shit

While the bias against conservatives on social media is nothing new, solutions for it are few and far between. No one wants to lose or abandon a platform full of all their old photos, memories, and contacts that they spent years building and accumulating. While alternatives to major brands like Twitter and Facebook exist, they quite frankly for a lack of a better word usually “suck.”

When the Twitter alternative Parler came along, I created a throwaway account to check it out, realized no one was on it, and never thought to check back. Then all of a sudden it was trending on Twitter and everyone was jumping over because influencers were promoting it (and if I know influencers, that means they’re getting paid.)

I was alerted immediately that people had found an imposter account using my verified Twitter/Instagram handle of @iheartmindy that was mimicking my real account with the banner and profile pics and making disgusting and sexually vulgar comments as if it were me. So I go over to report it as do multitudes of other people…and nothing happened. I actually got into a Twitter beef with Dan Bongino over it because I made a comment on one of his posts where he was talking about how amazing Parler was and I mentioned this issue, which he quickly internalized and got extremely rude over. Apparently he’s part owner of it, and I was unintentionally crapping on his parade.

Popular Free Speech Platform ‘parler’ Triggers Smear Campaign

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.
