Or Grindr with the name ”fun in my truck”
I’m guessing parlor is like a fück app for rednecks... side note those mirrored rainbow glasses r the doucheiest glasses I’ve ever seen
@bobbylupo, those are the glasses that make 'Nickleback' sound like heavy metal
@bobbylupo, ive got glasses with blue lenses to help when fishing but i cant imagine those have a real use other than to make you look silly as hell.
@bobbylupo, nah, it's a right-wing safe space app. People are going there because they think Twitter is censoring their free speech when it fact checks them or blocks hate speech.
@Commander Peanuts, So was Twitter fact-checking or blocking hate speech when they suspended the New York Post’s account over the Hunter Biden article for six weeks? Or is it that you are so immersed in your leftist echo chamber that you legitimately cannot see the very plain fact that Twitter and Facebook treat conservative voices differently than leftist ones? That there is one standard for the right and another for the left, which I’m sure has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the overwhelming majority of Twitter and Facebook employees self-identify as being left leaning. Seriously bro, if you left-wing babies were getting censored like conservatives are you’d riot and burn down cities... wait?
@Block1187, lol sure bud. If you say so. I don't really use Twitter much but I do know they're a private company so they can allow or not allow whatever they want. Remember, freedom of speech isn't freedom from consequences
@Commander Peanuts, I never said it was, but you said they only censor posts by fact checking them or else blocking them if they are hate speech. Not true. Twitter and FB absolutely go after conservatives in a way they don’t go after leftists, and it is strongly indicative of bias on the part of the individuals who make these decisions about what needs to be fact checked or censored and what doesn’t. But, just for sec though, imagine how funny it is that the same people who say “just because you don’t experience racism or sexism doesn’t mean they don’t exist” literally turn around and say “Twitter and FB don’t discriminate against right wingers, the right is just whining about being fact checked”
@Block1187, I never said it doesn't discriminate against right-wingers. I'm just saying the false equivalence that the right constantly tries to make is not true. Seems to me like the dangerous things "conservatives" try to say are much worse than the dangerous things leftists say. Or maybe it's just that the left is better at knowing when their own side is joking. Ah well. I hope parler is every bit of an echo chamber you want it to be and more.
@Commander Peanuts, I don’t use parler my dude, I have no interest in communing exclusively with right-wingers, because, get this, I’m not a right-winger, I’m a centrist. But even I can see that the left has become an ideology of intolerance and hate, refusing to allow any room for variation on its orthodox ideologies, and actively targeting people for harassment, expulsion, and even at times violence. The right says things that are more dangerous than the left huh? Is that why Communism killed over 100 million people in the 20th century and yet young “woke” bros still proudly display the hammer and sickle as a symbol of their commitment to “equality” your bias is unbelievable man, your ideology is the most dangerous to ever exist, and when we see Antifa rioting in the streets, burning buildings, attacking “Nazis” (anyone who looks right wing qualifies as a nazi by the way) we see exactly what your ideology stands for, “equality” means no room for different ideas, because different
@Commander Peanuts, ideas are too dangerous to be allowed. Right out of the communist handbook, and it’s exactly what Antifa and the radical left worship as their gospel. But for sure, the right is definitely more dangerous.
@Block1187, aah there it is. Leftists are communists. Let me try to be succinct. If leftists are communists, righties are nazis. Do I believe either is true? No. But hopefully that puts it into perspective. You may identify as a centrist but you're using a lot of right-wing talking points. Look go ahead and rant about antifa and commies all you want. But maybe, since you're so inclined to hear it from both sides, you should start trying to talk to leftists instead of immediately calling them evil radicals.
@Commander Peanuts, they can talk to me! I'm more center-left, but if I have to choose I'm a democrat. I hate pure socialism and communism because a dictator pushing those ideals killed my mother's father's side of the family in Ukraine. I'm sick of my wanting to end poverty in America being labeled as I support communism. Nope. I want a capitalism where our money actually comes back into our hands to support our local businesses and economies.
@Desiderata, exactly. I'm on the left, but I'm absolutely not a communist or a socialist. And I think it's dishonest and harmful to label either of us as such. And yet, so many people just default to it because they assume the strawmen they hear in whatever bogus media they consume is the norm for the other side. Well I'm glad people like you are willing to have those conversations.
@Commander Peanuts, Conservatives were getting their posts deleted on Twitter and Facebook for their predictions on the election. They considered predictions as false info. I've had many posts blocked by Facebook as hate speech, even though i was simply speaking highly of one candidate. If you speak good about someone they hate, they consider it hate speech.
@Commander Peanuts, you know, the fire is starting to get visible from Canada, do you guys need help over there? I mean, I'm enjoying the fireworks but I don't want to be collateral damage in civil war 2: nuclear boogaloo.
@Emp4th, haha nah it's probably better if you guys just keep taking care of yourselves. We're farther from a civil war than either side cares to admit
@bobbylupo, no its an alternative to twitter who censors any idea thats not far left. Its a growing alternative against the authoritarian racists who control twitter.
@bobbylupo, no it's the Republican alternative to leftist Twitter.
@Commander Peanuts, They are a platform not a publisher they aren't allowed to censor legally. but section 230 protects them from getting sued for it.
@Commander Peanuts, nice goal post moving. so when Twitter does it it's perfectly fine but when parler supposedly does it the other way which they don't even do then it's a safe space app?
@Commander Peanuts, sure Twitter and Facebook CAN censor what people say, but by doing that they become a publisher, which is something neither of them want.
@Commander Peanuts, also it's not really hard to believe them censoring one side. Youtube shadowbans/demonitizes conservative channels.
@Block1187, if u say u support the left u get praised but yet if u say u support the right you’re a racist and that’s hate speech... if I came from 2000 to 2020 and didn’t know about anything that happened in the last 20 years I’d probably laugh at every article I read about politics and just be totally astounded at what this county has turned into
I am willing to give it a try half the people I follow on fb, twitter, and youtube are leaving those platforms.
@highjacker52, ah yes the "pro-free speech" social media that blocks anything that isn't a right wing conspiracy
@Donald Drumpf, I thought right wing conspiracies were the only thing they did block
@bobbylupo, we're talking about parler
@Donald Drumpf, please tell me thats hyperbole
@that1german, *Googles 'hyperbole'
@Donald Drumpf, I don't know why people are surprised. Right wingers we're getting banned for literally anything while left wingers called for the death of that teen that smirked at a native American. Come on.
@Sluggernot, Twitter banned anyone for me turning the Hunter Biden laptop story
@Donald Drumpf, twitter banned a dude that just retweeted blue check marks but never banned the blue checkmarks.
@highjacker52, I’ve already left Twitter myself. I’m tired of the ridiculous censorship and the highly toxic far left extremist crap that goes on there. I’m a moderate, down the center and so far I’m liking Parlor a lot more. You don’t have a bunch of weirdos trying to cancel or berate you and you can actually have a normal rational discussion there. I’ve met people who are left to right leaning there who are sick and tired of all the far left and censoring crap that goes on in other big tech places. Funny how the media is now pushing Parler as some kind of far right sight when it really isn’t, more right leaning but everyone is welcome except the far left...but if you’re a far left idiot, stay on Twitter where the toxicity makes everyone there just eat each other up
Must come with thinly-veiled antisemitic conspiracy theory beliefs.
I’ll say the app is built really well but yeah, so far it’s extremely right wing.
@ImNotRacistBut, because its full of people that got banned off twitter.
@ImNotRacistBut, Because right wing people are only really allowed to express their opinions on Parler. Everything else either gets banned, "fact checked" with dubious facts, or outright censored.
Also, nobody is stopping left-leaning people from talking on Parler. They just can't deal with a platform where daddy Big Tech can swoop in and save them from the mean men with the mean words. Therefore, they don't even try to engage.
The heck is parler
@Webbed Foot, it’s like twitter but without the censorship
@My Opinion is Trash , by "censorship" do you mean fact checking and warnings of spreading misinformation?
@Funny Pics Janitor, no.
@My Opinion is Trash , so a new tumblr
@Funny Pics Janitor, its pretty sad that you allow someone else to dictate to you whats true or not.
@Funny Pics Janitor, no, we mean censorship
@Funny Pics Janitor, dude don’t even fib yourself . if you think any of their fact checks are even remotely true you’re just a dumb sheep
@Funny Pics Janitor, Since when did social media platforms suddenly become the arbiters of truth? They're a platform, not a publisher.
Not to mention the fact that their "fact checking" and "warnings" (bans) are not evenly applied.
On Twitter, today, you can still see tweets about the Russian collusion conspiracy that ended up being entirely bogus accusations with no reliable sources to back them up. But mention Hunter Biden's laptop, if which we have actual proof of its existence? Banned.
@LookOutASni, obviously they were bogus the only " evidence" they ever had was the steel dossier that came straight from the clinton foundation, the fact that john podesta is mentally retarded and fell for a fishing scam, Russia paying 10k for pro trump facebook ads, and that trump happend to do a rally at the same time and place that a russian business man was in town.
Parler means to talk in French and is pronounced par lay
Looks normal compared to the Twitter starter pack
I have found my type
