SASS on Parler?


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if the powers to be at SASS might want to check into Parler, it's a whole lot friendlier than facebook! Lots of people are going there.

I'm on it as ryemiles

Just a thought. Anyone else on Parler?

Just wondering why? I have no problem with Facebook.  If you’re talking about that you can say anything you want.... I’ll just say what a good friend of mine in law enforcement said....  if I wanted to created a place to let anyone say anything they wanted and let them think they weren’t being monitored I’d make a place like that and call it Parlor.   
 

just sayin....

There is Gab and MeWe too. Parler has been banned like Gab from Google App store and liberals are lobbying to have it removed from the Apple App store too. Interesting to see how far this current wave of social media purging extends. Sooner or later they will ban firearms from social media and then the internet. Even SASS is blocked on many company and even some public wifi.

the fact of it being blocked in business and public wifi has nothing to do with anything other then their own private policy.  That’s been like that.

MeWe is more like fb without the anti gun attacks. To me Parler is more like Twitter . 
MeWe has some great reloading groups without all the stupid fb problems 

 

Its good to see some competition the current monopoly is not good for the consumers

And what makes anyone think that Parler, MeWe, Gab, etc. won't turn into the same crap that Faceplant and Twitter have now? They will and it'll happen quicly.

I want it just for the competition aspect. Twitter and fb aren’t really the same thing . And if there’s more competition maybe everyone gets something they find more acceptable. If you want a safe space to to Twitter if you want the free exchange of ideas go to Parler .

I left Facebook, never was on Twitter. Dropped Chrome and Explorer for Brave. Dropped Google for DuckDuckGo. Social media may be crap but it is very influential in shaping the culture and politics is downstream from culture. So if one side is effectively excluded from shaping the culture and getting their views out in popular social media it is essentially unilateral surrender to the other sides politics if one leaves the field of play. So I support the creation of alternative social media as a means to allow people to express their views and to influence the culture and politics.

I downloaded "Revert" and use it for FB.  Gives me back the "old look" and no ads.  

I think of FB the same way as I do TV channels.  I don't have to look at the News Feed, I don't have to look at Political arguments or get involved with any other nonsense.  

I look at pages about my interests, Firearms of the Old West, and SASS related pages... then turn it off.

I make it known that rudeness won't be tolerated on my pages, just like in my home, and have some pards helping me to enforce it.

That seems to work.  So, I'm hanging there.

Your right, but , here’s the but , we lose our rights by not participating. Your typical conservative religious person who believes in the 2nd amendment just wants to be left alone to live there life and do there thing . And that would be great if people would actually let them do that. But they never have and never will . In too many cases perceived public opinion is all that matters and if we like it or not social media is what shapes that opinion today

That will go away in the near future. I forget what the target date is.

It makes sense , the reason fb is free is so the can sell your data and sell ads . I wondered how the were letting anyone get away with it

I use FB for some collecting groups, funny stuff, and keeping in touch with folks. I don't post anything political and don't allow it on my page. I don't rant, froth at the mouth, insult or threaten. I don't worry about censorship because it's a private run site. Their House. Their rules.

Life's too short to stay all worked up and some people are staying worked up 24/7.

I like to smell the coffee. And my cup is always half full. I never let it get lower than that. ;)

MeWe is Fakebook for conservatives. It is slowly growing, and some groups have grown quickly, like food groups, BBQ, and even gun groups. SASS should look into this instead of Fakebook.

I don’t think Parler will. They’re getting people like crazy coming from Twitter and Facebook because conservative voices are allowed. I believe they’ll thrive and prosper because they’re different.

I just opened a MeWe account.  Works just like FB but no censorship, no ads, no selling or sharing your data or personal info.  We'll see how it goes.  Never was a fan of FB anyway.

Still available as of 20 minutes ago for Apple devices but no longer for Android devices from Google. Also I am being told that texts on WhatsApp are now being monitored, switching to Signal is being suggested.

Look on Parler, CEO said tomorrow at midnight that Amazon, who’s servers they operate from, will be turning them off.

Big tech and the big banks are on a tear right now. Who will shrug their shoulders despite these actions  and keep funding them?

 

The irony is the chatter over the years of “someone ought to start a conservative alternative to x y x.”

When it does start, people don’t switch to build the brand, and when these platforms are  blackballed, squeezed out, shutdown (not to mention small and medium businesses with the government in on subsidizing it) people are like “meh.”

It sounds as if it may be wise for users of Parler not to advocate violence. This is the stated reason by Apple and Google. As to that, I don't know, because I never look at social media anyway.

Based on their reasoning Twitter should have been shutdown long ago. It’s awful

Google, Apple & Amazon told Parler to adopt Twitter & FB content censorship policies or they will stay banned.  Parler runs on Amazon cloud servers & Amazon notified them they will be shut down at 12:00 AM Monday.  They posted on Parler the service could be down for as long as a week.

P.S. Twitter has always been a sewer and their policy of censoring "moderating" political content hasn't sweetened the smell of the contents of their sewer.  When they gave some B.S. public statement justifying blocking the NY Post "Big Guy" influence pedaling story I closed my account.  I am now following the few people & org's that I followed on Twitter on Parler.  My mistake was to not install the app from the Apple app store before it was removed.  Using a web browser you have to use a two step login process.  The 2nd step is to block bots by using a Captcha.

Three multi-trillion dollar companies (Apple, Google, and Amazon) coordinating with two other multi-trillion dollar companies (Facebook and Twitter) to destroy any competition.

The big banks are in on censoring/discriminatory lending thats anti 1A 2A 

I can’t find sources but Sidney Powell stated banks were shutting down individuals accounts. Kinda like we do to terrorists and rogue nations. 
So when will Gunbroker, National Right to Life, Heritage Foundation, etc be told they are being booted from a Socialist server? 
 

Meanwhile ANTIFA sites keep rocking along, but wait they’re not a group they’re an idea.

Yeah but we have a Team SASS section some in government and business could find threatening or misconstrue as fomenting lies and misinformation. What would you say to a regulatory policy requiring disclaimer of posts that “ an independent third party found to be false.”

All it’s going to take is for big tec to say promotion of shooting games promotes violence and SASS will be gone . And that’s not really much of a stretch in today’s political climate.

Twitter allows Iran and Iranian officials on their site to promote violence. Yet they will ban the account of the leader of the free world. . 
They definitely don’t apply their terms of service the same to everyone.

Just two thoughts:

 

I would think it is in SASS interests to promote the sport through as many social media platforms as possible, and one would think that a presence especially on platforms that are gun friendly would be a win as the audience would in general be more supportive and likely to show interest that might lead to active participation.

 

And, given the way the wind is blowing in politics and dominate social media, minimizing the potential dangers is not the wisest policy. So keeping as many options open as possible and winning new friends is a good thing.
