PARLER: What is the app that right wing celebrities are joining?

Sounds hideous. And isn't there already a number of online places for right wingers to have a circle jerk anyway?

The social media app Parler is seeing an uptick in users including many Conservative MPs

The platform, which was launched in August 2018, markets itself as an alternative to Twitter. It describes itself as an “a non-biased free speech driven entity.”

Parler hosts many far-right figureheads who have been removed from other platforms. Prominent users include Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump, far-right activist Laura Loomer who chained herself to Twitter’s headquarters, Mr Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale, and far-right activist Candace Owens who infamously said that “If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine.”

Jewish News website Forward has said that the app is “full of fury, fear and conspiracy theories” with notable antisemitism and Islamophobia. “The belief that Jews are running the world, encouraging immigrants to flood America’s borders, controlling the media and generally working behind the scenes as master puppeteers are easy to find on Parler” it continues.

Antisemitic conspiracy theories about Mark Zuckerberg and George Soros are also commonplace. Upon signing up to the website, Parler recommended trends that were popular “right now” included #trumptweetsmatter, #kukluxklan, #georgesoros and #covidiots

1. Globalist is the rebranded name for Jew...this antisemitic cr@p is as old as the birchers.

The bigots have spewing this conspiracy theory tripe for decades.

The evolution of christofascist fearmongering and scapegoating.

Zuckerberg is a mercenary little sh&t, but he is not part of any conspiracy, Jewish or otherwise.

3. Well, Reddit is a Latin word.

I'm not defending the site, but most people in the UK must know what "parler" means. Eric Trump probably doesn't, though.

4. In my experience Reddit is even less RW friendly than Twitter

The sort of people who Parler is targeting, if they do post on Reddit spend most of their time on there moaning about all the downvotes they keep getting.
