Conservatives May Now Have a Social Media Choice

Conservatives May Now Have a  Social Media Choice

Conservatives who are weary of being suspended and censored on monopoly social media platforms are taking individual initiative and moving their discussions to competing platforms that don’t let diet fascists (Thanks, Candace Owens) cancel their content.

One would have thought the leftists would be glad to be rid of racist, homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic, sexist, ableist, white supremacist, meat-eating conservatives and "Trumpistas."

But, au contraire. Leaving appears to be forbidden, too.

One of the more popular micro-blogging outlets for conservatives and other supporters of free speech is Parler.

Kikra Davis at RedState.com explains, "They’ve been around for a while but as Twitter banishments picked up steam in the last few months, the social media app began to see their numbers explode as people sought out censorship free social spaces. Made famous by major investor Dan Bongino, Parler has gone from being an experimental right-wing alternative to being a major player on the social media scene."

Any success by a communication medium is not controlled by the left is a threat and must be dealt with immediately. The tools are some of the favorite leftist smear techniques.

Guilt by association, fact distortion, accusations, Russia, and plain old lies.

An example of this lunacy is thoughtfully provided by Dave Troy described by RedState as, "a left-wing TedTalk speaker who bills himself as a 'disinformation analyst.'"

One of the Parler investors had the temerity to marry a Russian national. (The fact the Russian was a woman may have added fuel to the fire.)

Since it’s against leftist law to use the word "Russia" without "Putin" being the the mix, Troy does not disappoint.

The Russian matrimonial connection proves beyond a shadow of Troy’s doubt Parler is a Russian "disinformation" plot.

Then Troy staggers over to conservative media personality Dan Bongino, who is responsible for some of Parler’s rapid growth, and claims Bongino couldn’t really be an investor.

Worst of all, by leaving leftist-controlled social media in favor of neutral social media the fleeing conservatives are somehow participants in an aggressive attack.

Troy contends the movement is some sort of "bizarre, anti-social mission."

And the fact Parler is bold enough to compete with Twitter is in truth an effort to "erode" the platform that is somehow supposed to be immune from competition. (We wonder if Troy is up to speed on the Coke versus Pepsi struggle?)

Troy’s solution is for authorities to investigate Parler’s financial structure in an effort to create doubt as to its survivability. And maybe put Parler and its management on some sort of a blacklist. The left is good at that.

With all that going in its favor, we can’t help but suggest you give Parler a try.

What do you have to lose but your social media chains?
