Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: To Parler or not to Parlez?

Posted on

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.

My mother in law is one that normally doesn’t get duped… Yesterday she did. There is this scam that has been going on for some time.. I am not sure how far it reaches but it was in the news months ago. Older folks are targeted by a phone call that tells them their “granddaughter” or “grandson” are in jail and need help with bail money…She was told bail was $2000.00.. Stricken with panic, she asked to talk to my son… someone talked to her.. it wasn’t my son.. that’s for sure…anyway, i guess he is a good actor and was convincing enough.. My poor mother in law went to the bank, withdrew the cash and had them come to get it AT HER HOUSE!!!! for the love of Jesus!!!! Scary stuff. Needless-to-say some stressful moments yesterday especially after she called my son to see how he was doing and he had no clue what she was talking about.

Thankfully my mother in law is OK…god knows it could have ended worse. Cops are on the case. we shall see.
