‘Circle back’ to January 6th when we saw what mentally deranged Democrats referred to as ‘the worst attack ever to take place on American soil’.
They made this accusation while completely disregarding 9/11, Pearl Harbor, an actual bombing of the U.S. Capitol by the weather underground, etc.
This alleged insurrection gave way to the subsequent suspension of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of conservatives from all popular social media platforms.
Furthermore, Parler was eventually taken offline.
It started with the Apple App store kicking Parler from their app marketplace. This was then followed by Amazon removing them from their servers which took their entire website and all apps offline.
Fast forward to today and Parler is not only back online, but it is also back in Apple App Store.
According to tech blog CNET.com:
Conservative social media service Parler is once again available on Apple’s iOS App Store after being after being taken down following the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol. The updated version of the app includes “enhanced threat and incitement reporting tools,” according to its App Store listing.
The updated iOS app will also reportedly filter out posts on iPhones and iPads that are labeled “hate” by Parler’s moderation system, though these posts will still be available to view on other devices and via the web. Parler didn’t respond to CNET’s request for comment, but told The Washington Post it’s seeking to find common ground with Apple.
“At Parler we embrace the entire First Amendment meaning freedom of expression and conscience are protected,” Amy Peikoff, chief policy officer at Parler, told the Post. “We permit a maximum amount of legally protected speech.”
Parler, a social network popular with conservatives and right-wing extremists, went offline in January after being taking down by Apple,and Amazon. The tech giants took action to distance themselves from Parler as concerns grew that the service could be used to promote more violence.
Last month, Apple said in a letter to Republican lawmakers itand expected the app to return to its App Store once updated with those fixes. In the letter, the iPhone maker said it originally removed the app from its platform because its review team “found a significant number of posts” that violated the company’s rules against “objectionable content,” including posts that “encouraged violence, denigrated various ethnic groups, races and religions, glorified Nazism, and called for violence against specific people.”
So Parler is back online! It does appear there are some caveats involved in their sudden acceptance back into the tech oligarchs app stores.
It looks like those who download the app and view the service on that medium will be subjected to a filtered version void of any real free speech.
On the other hand, it looks like those at Parler may have found a workaround to uphold free speech on the platform. They claim that by viewing the service on a web browser you will then get the unfiltered version.
Of course, Parler’s return is met with mixed reactions online.
Now that #Parler is back in the App Store I will be putting my content on Parler first and using Twitter as a carbon copy thereafter.
Disgusted with the Big Tech collusion that attempted to stomp its platform out because conservatives abandoned this far left app.

WaPo reports that Parler is back on the App Store but never mentions the owner Bekah Mercer and her family’s interest in building technologies to foment authoritarianism and white supremacy. Saved you a click.

Is parler back? I feel ambivalent about that because the cesspit mostly moving elsewhere is appealing.

It’s clear that patriots are happy we finally have Parler back.
Albeit, there are quite a few butt-hurt liberals who have been telling conservatives to get off Twitter and go build their own social media platform. While at the same time condemning them for heading over to Parler where the 1st amendment is said to still exist!
We shall see how this goes. Let’s hope Parler will be fully functional and we will all have a place to exchange ideas without looking over our shoulders hoping we don’t get banned.
Are you on Parler? Let us know in the comments below!
