Parler, the conservative-friendly social media platform, announced its relaunch after being wiped offline for more than a month by big tech companies Amazon, Apple, and Google. Parler, which has more than 20 million users, was cut for failure to moderate “egregious content” related to the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot. Amazon had also banned the site from its cloud hosting service.
“Parler was built to offer a social media platform that protects free speech and values privacy and civil discourse. When Parler was taken offline in January by those who desire to silence tens of millions of Americans, our team came together, determined to keep our promise to our highly engaged community that we would return stronger than ever. We’re thrilled to welcome everyone back,” said Mark Meckler, who was appointed as interim CEO after the exit of former CEO John Matze.
Meckler is a co-founder of Tea Party Patriots and a leader in the Article V Convention of States movement. While Parler’s executive committee is still conducting a search for a permanent CEO to lead the social network, Meckler continues to preserve and protect the first amendment for every citizen. The platform has reached delays in their CEO search due to new branding and changes for the sake of stability.
Parler returned with a new hosting service that they announced “is built on robust, sustainable, independent technology.” It currently describes itself as the “world premiere free speech platform” and will be available immediately for current users. New users will be able to sign up for Parler soon.
Parler will employ human editors and use artificial intelligence to police illegal speech that violates its service agreement while remaining true to free speech and no censorship roots. Prominent users have applauded Parler for fighting back against big tech and cancel culture, who have targeted and silenced thousands of conservative voices.
“When Parler was taken offline in January by those who desire to silence tens of millions of Americans, our team came together, determined to keep our promise to our highly engaged community that we would return stronger than ever,” Meckler said.
Meckler promised users that Parler would thrive as the ‘premier social media platform’ and remain dedicated to free speech, privacy, and civil dialogue. He added that the team is “thrilled to welcome everyone back” and confirmed that they are “here to stay.” So much for trying to kill the free market, Big Tech. Read more conservative writings.
