I’ve seen that too - the horrified mass media morons noticing that people are fed up with their antics and bias and going elsewhere - where they can discuss things without the childish censorship, insults, and derision from the political left. As I’ve said repeatedly - I am on Gab, but Parler is supposed to be good and some others are rising to give people an alternative to the rage machines like Twitter and Bookface. And of course, all kinds of bad think goes on at such places where liberals can’t throttle it like they do on their own platforms. But its now so bad That even other lefties are bailing out. It’s driving them nuts too. Clearly something has to be done or these awful Christians and icky conservative free thinkers will say whatever they want on their own forums.
What’s to stop them from making Andrew Torba at Gab an offer? I’ve actually lived through that: my employer expected us to work like buggers and sacrifice for ‘our company’... and then he sold it to the competition. He sailed off into a gold plated retirement, the new owners shut down the company and laid off all the employees to clean up the marketplace.
How much money would you sell your free speech for?
