Trump Campaign and Republicans Moving to Parler– Social Media Site Filled With Far-Right Extremists, Anti-Semitism
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Trump campaign may move to the social media site/app Parler because Facebook has removed some Trump campaign ads for violating ad rules, and Trump himself has been fact-checked on Twitter.
The Jewish News website Forward said that Parler is “full of fury, fear and conspiracy theories” including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
CBS News reported in May 2019 that Parler would not suspend accounts, no matter what was posted.
Newsweek notes that many right wing figures — some of whom have lost their accounts on social media sites — have moved to Parler: Eric Trump, Laura Loomer, Rudy Giuliani, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, Milo Yiannopolous, Gavin McInnes, Brad Parscale, Alex Jones, Tommy Robinson and Jacob Wohl.
The Independent noted “Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Mark Zuckerberg and George Soros are also commonplace.“
Right Wing Watch notes that conservatives have threatened to move to Parler — — as they did in 2019:

I just did my first post on @parler_app. Works pretty much the same as here. But the air is much freer over there. Too bad we have semi-literate punks on this platform determining what can and cannot be said pic.twitter.com/jmeXx17Zt3— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) June 25, 2020
