Amid censorship of conservative media by tech giants, a Tuesday POLITICO report said that President Donald J. Trump is considering opening an account on Parler, a Twitter-esque social network.
“According to one person close to Trump’s campaign, the president’s team is considering setting him up with an account on the site,” the report said. “A senior Trump campaign official said that there was no imminent plan to have the president join the platform, but that [Campaign Manager Brad] Parscale is scouting Parler.”
It is unclear what type of effect a Trump move would have on existing platforms that he uses, like Twitter. It is unlikely that Trump would stop using other forms of social media completely.
Many prominent conservatives who have been banned from Facebook and/or Twitter use Parler. Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Gavin McInnes all have accounts. Candace Owens – recently suspended but quickly reinstated on Facebook – has a Parler account. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also uses the social network.
The news of Trump’s potential use of Parler comes as another prominent conservative was banned from Twitter Tuesday morning.
Big League Politics reported:
Tuesday, another prominent conservative journalist was banned from Twitter.
“Nick Monroe has been permanently suspended from Twitter. This is the email he received explaining why,” said right wing personality Brittany Pettibone.
Monroe, known for his long Tweet threads and shoe-leather research which often exposed conniving leftist media and political figures, allegedly violated Twitter’s rules “against evading permanent suspension.” He had nearly 50,000 followers.
Over the weekend, Monroe busted several prominent leftist media figures for sharing a fake quote attributed to President Donald J. Trump, fabricated by TIME columnist Ian Bremmer. He made a thread exposing those who shared the quote without verifying its truthfulness, embarrassing propagandists like CNN’s Ana Navarro, Wall Street Journal’s Farnaz Fassihi, and NPR’s Pam Fessler.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer
Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.
Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.
“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.
“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.
Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.
“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.
“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.
Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:
According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.
Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.
Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”
Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”
Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.
Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.
Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”
Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
