BIG TECH: Free Speech App Parler Could Cause ‘Harms’ to ‘Democracy’

Fol­low us on Par­ler! 

A lead researcher for tech­nol­o­gy con­demned con­ser­v­a­tives for doing what many on the left have told con­ser­v­a­tives to do — join a new social media plat­form. And she used CNN to do it.

Polit­i­cal ads lead researcher Brid­get Bar­rett seemed dis­gust­ed by the fact con­ser­v­a­tives have any safe-haven online to share their ideas. She joined CNN in an inter­view Nov. 15. Her com­ments in the inter­view demon­strate that lib­er­als don’t care about con­ser­v­a­tives’ rights to free speech, but mere­ly want those views to be silenced. CNN anchor Michael Holmes began with a lead­ing ques­tion about how Par­ler con­sti­tutes an “echo cham­ber” and asked “what are the risks in that?” Bar­rett respond­ed by pan­ick­ing over how Par­ler will enable “the spread of hate, of false infor­ma­tion” and “ter­ror­ists, both for­eign and domes­tic to recruit or plan.”

Bar­rett also warned that Par­ler could cause “harms” to “our democ­ra­cy” itself:

“If you allow a space where none of these claims are going to be coun­tered, that peo­ple are going to believe that an elec­tion was unfair or ille­git­i­mate when every valid and legit­i­mate source has been clear that this was one of the best run elec­tions that we’ve had in years.”
