Skip to comments.'Free Speech' Social Network Parler Allegedly Censoring #WriteInTrumpforGA
Posted on 11/24/2020 8:03:47 PM PST by SeekAndFind
Social network Parler has allegedly hidden posts on its website that are tagged as #WriteInTrumpForGA. The hashtag is encouraging disgruntled supporters of President Donald Trump to write the president in rather than any candidate for the upcoming Senate Runoff elections.
The hashtag originated in a Super PAC with GOP ties.The Committee for American Sovereignty, connected to political consultant Roger Stone, launched a website calling for people to "Hack the Runoff," and write in Trump. The website states:
With enough write-ins in the Georgia senate race, we can tilt the balance in Georgia in Trump's favor! If we can do this, we have a real chance at getting these RINO [Republican In Name Only] senators to act on the illegitimate and corrupt election presided over by a Democrat party that is invested in the Communist takeover of Our Great Nation. We will not stop fighting for you, the American Patriot, against the evils of Socialism and inferior Religions. This is a Christian Nation and will be as long as we fight, together, for our sovereignty.
A user on Twitter shared a screenshot of Parler's search screen. The screengrab shows no results for #WriteInTrumpforGA. However, a Newsweek search on Parler shows that there are 21 "Parleys" for the aforementioned hashtag, six for a #WriteInTrumpforSenateGA, and 52 for #WriteinTrumpGeorgiaRunoff.
The Parler admins appear to be censoring the #WriteInTrumpForGA hashtag… DISGRACEFUL!

While there are only a few Parleys in each category, the one with the most posts is the #WriteInTrump hashtag, which has 158 Parleys. Some Parler users also shared similar screenshots alleging that the social network was censoring the posts.

Wow, the msm is really concerned about Parler. I’m sure they are just looking out for us.
Since this is backed by Mercer I can see her doing it.
Mitch loses power if there is a rebellion.
Newsweek, stay off of Parler, you might get Freedom cooties.
The MSM attempting to sow discord. But, what else is new.
“SCAM: #WriteInTrumpGA IS A LEFTIST OPERATION! DON’T FALL FOR IT!”
I wonder if Newsweak has ever written a story about the Twitter/Facebook/Google censors. Hmmm?
This was my first reaction. Write in Trump, the Dem candidates win. Stupid.
I’m in “Parler”, but, one gripe.
Why the name?
Isn’t that French?
Is parler an American company?
Why not “speech” or “FreeSpeech” or “FirstAmendment” or 1stAmendment?
Parler doesn’t sound too American to me. Perhaps something with more relevant meaning to it?
The write in idea is completely idiotic. And if they censor anything, why not porn, etc.?
French name Parler, bet it made Kerry happy. English is not good enough for some people.
Roger Stone’s Parler doesn’t have this on it. The only mention I see is him denying he’s pushing for it.
Sounds like Newsweek is fake news.
Dont obsess about stuff like that. Freespeech.(com,org,...) urls are probably already taken and camped on by Big Brother or front-running url speculators. A rose by any ...
Oh, man. There ya go. Now THAT will be the next thing the left seizes on. “Not only was Parler hacked, and they censor posts, they’re also not American and sell your information to foreign countries...allegedly.” Seriously, who knows why they picked it? Probably one of the few domains they could get for less than $100k or the like.
ANTHING THE LYING MAIN STREET MEDIA SAYS ABOUT PARLER OR Q ANON IS LIES !
Based on its FEC filings, the super-PAC is dormant, with a zero balance and outstanding debt:
My guess is that lefties are borrowing its name to attempt to help the Democrats get a Senate majority. Stone has denied any involvement in the write-in campaign.

My suspicion is that he was trying to suppress the GOP vote in the run-off by associating his hashtags #WriteInTrumpforSenateGA and #WriteinTrumpGeorgiaRunoff with Roger Stone, and got caught by Parler.
