The left’s war against free speech and conservative voices has once again reared its ugly head, as Parler, the premier uncancelable social media platform for conservatives, was recently taken down.
However, there is hope for the millions of loyal Parler users, as Starboard, a digital media conglomerate with a focus on conservative news websites, has acquired Parler and plans to rebuild the platform from the ground up. This is a huge victory for free speech and conservative values, as it shows that the conservative movement will not be silenced by the leftist elites who control big tech.
Parler’s previous attempt at ownership by YE (formerly Kanye West) fell through, but that didn’t stop the left from celebrating. The Daily Beast went as far as to call Parler a “MAGA cesspit.” This just goes to show how intolerant and hateful the left has become towards any dissenting opinion. However, Starboard’s acquisition of Parler is a beacon of hope for those who value free speech and the conservative movement.
Starboard’s CEO, Ryan Coyne, has praised Parler for its large user base and strategic assets, stating that it represents an enormous opportunity for Starboard to continue building aggressively in the media and publishing business.
This acquisition will allow Parler’s exceptional audience to be integrated across all of Starboard’s existing platforms, giving conservative voices a much-needed boost.
Parler’s previous CEO, John Matze, made a bold statement about the importance of free speech on his platform, stating that if we restrict and censor the voices of people to keep our country safe, then our country is already lost.
This is a powerful statement that highlights the true importance of free speech and the impact that censorship can have on our society. We need platforms like Parler to protect our voices and our rights to express our opinions without fear of persecution.
Senator Ted Cruz has also been a vocal supporter of Parler and a critic of big tech companies like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. He warned about the dangers of these companies having the ability to affect the outcome of the November election, and his warning proved to be prescient. Big tech companies are clearly biased against conservative voices, and they will stop at nothing to silence us.
Starboard’s acquisition of Parler is a critical step in the fight against leftist censorship and the suppression of conservative voices. The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed, but Starboard expects the deal to be accretive by the end of Q2 2023.
While the platform will be pulled down from operation to undergo a strategic assessment, Starboard sees tremendous opportunities across multiple sectors to continue to serve marginalized or even outright censored communities – even extending beyond domestic politics.
