The popular Twitter alternative, Parler, is under attack by Big Tech, propagandists and censors.
It recently lost its ability to operate due to coordinated efforts, and has been looking for a way to come back that doesn't rely upon the monopolists who control the Internet space.
The same people and entities (including Big Tech) that are blaming Parler for things such as inciting violence ignore the fact that the FBI found rioters -- both left and right -- allegedly posting and communicating on Facebook, Twitter and non-Parler platforms.
Parler's CEO John Matze provided the following update over the weekend:
Now seems like the right time to remind you all-- both lovers and haters-- why we started this platform. We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise the rights to both. We will resolve any challenges before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!John Matze, Parler CEO
