Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: To Parler or not to Parlez?
Is what happened to parler fair? Being singled out the way it was after the nonsense that happened on Capitol Hill? Is what happened to parler a serious hit to freedom of speech? it’s a bit of a slippery slope but in the end it was the right decision.. regardless of those conspiracists that think otherwise.
Paraphrased from the mouth of the CPO..
Parler.. A platform where you can speak freely, where u will not be fact checked and told how to think, what to read etc…
So basically u can spew a bunch of lies and that’s ok u won’t be called out on it .. Because u know in today’s world it’s not about truth… it’s about ‘your‘ truth.
Every social media platform has its share of toxicity. I don’t think any of these platforms started out that way. That wasn’t the intention behind the platform. Unfortunately it devolved into that because unfortunately in this world of ours there are scumbags on every side. Parler on the other hand was created specifically for that, masked under the veil of ‘freedom of speech’ nonsense. It’s a group of like minded toxic people spewing lies, conspiracy theories, nonsense and more importantly, violence without accountability. And now they’re getting a little help from Russia. And maybe it’s just me but .. A little bit of irony, no? Russia and freedom of speech.
