So there aren't enough Right Wing assholes to make it profitable or right wing assholes can't enjoy themselves if there are no snowflakes to trigger and Libs to pwn?

When Nunes joined in February, he told his Twitter fans, which number 1.1 million, to join him on Parler if they're "tired of left wing censorship of big tech." Nunes has an infamous relationship with Twitter, after attempting to sue the company for defamation and negligence and naming as defendants two anonymous parody accounts, "Devin Nunes' Mom" and "Devin Nunes' Cow."

Because nothing shows respect for the freedom of speech like filing lawsuits to limit someone else's freedom of speech.

No one wants to advertise on Parler when Twitter still exists, especially since there's a risk that their add for Animal Crackers might show up inline with a tweet Parler(? What are they called?) calling a subset of humanity animals.

From what I've read from Farkers who have joined that site, they were perma-banned almost instantly. So much for "freeze peach".

A Devin Nunes' Cow parody account was created on Parler as well and has already been banned.

A couple of highlights
CEO dislikes both political parties but doesn't say why, is it because one party wants to give Blacks equal rights and the other onevisn't fighting hard enough to make killing them legal? Just asking.
If you don't like Trump just vote him out don't censor him, so does that mean no matter what Trump does don't censor him because reasons but it's okay to censor/ban liberals also for reasons
No one will stay on Twitter if the conservatives are removed, what makes you believe this

Parler is doomed to failure of many reasons.  One is that super hot celebrities will never use it.  Zazie Beetz as an example and as an excuse to post a pic of her.

Matze expects Parler to become a more attractive site for a more diverse audience over time because he sees Twitter continuing down a path of alienating right-wing voices, and "no one is going to want to stay on Twitter if the conservatives are gone."

Yeah, trying to dethrone the market leader by creating a fascist right-wring echo chamber probably isn't going to work out terribly well for you. You have self-constrained your userbase to Mango Mussolini's supporters and they're going to keep everyone else out.

The CEO of Parler insisting that he doesn't run a hate-site sounds like the start of a College Humor skit, where he gradually tears out his hair after reading the incredibly racist posts of his user base.

Not having visited it so I could be waaaay off but I'm guessing the primary advertisers are peddlers of penis enlargement pills, off brand viagra, fake viagra, military themed apparel, low quality "survivalist" gear and get-rich-quick scams.

1. Every single person complaining about "Cancel Culture" is actually complaining about being criticised. (Usually that's all "cancelling" means. Being criticised.)

2. When people say they want "free speech" in opposition to "cancel culture", what they actually mean is that they want to limit free speech to themselves, and want to deny you the right to use your own speech to criticise their speech.

3. "Free speech" bastions like Gab, Parler and the like are all doomed to fail, because the only people attracted to them are people who want the sort of "free speech" that means they can say whatever they like to anyone else but nobody else is allowed to be mean to them. This is not a policy that can be generalised for obvious reasons.

4. It is insane that the people who have spent the last half-decade complaining about "snowflakes" and "safe spaces" are now throwing an absolute shiatfit over "woke" "cancel culture" and demanding separate walled gardens free of "woke cancel culture", which, again, only ever means "people disagreeing with you online."

Twitter is the worse thing ever created by man.   A version of that filled with conservatives seems like the newly discovered 10th circle of hell.

That's not the only no-no on Parler, which has a fairly thorough set of community guidelines. The app doesn't allow terrorist organizations or support for terrorism, the sharing of false rumors, violent language (what the site describes as "fighting words") toward others, blackmail or pornography.

I guess that's the same thing as censorship free.
