    The big irony is that it is becoming clear that monetized social media and advertising models are basically the next tobacco in terms of societal damage and consumer sentiment.
    One day may even be seen to be worse than big oil. Naaahhh, couldn't be that evil.

    Parler is headquartered in Henderson Nevada, which also doesn't have much tech talent. On top of that, you'll basically never work in tech again if you have that on your resume. All of my friends at the major companies are just salivating over this. Big tech is absolutely infested with woke activists with thFunny thing is I knew for certain they'd get hacked at some point in the near future, because of how startups do security coupled with them being so hated, so I used a throwaway bogus email to sign up, so when the dumps came out, my details wouldn't show up in the witch hunt.
    This is actually the most troublesome thing here. You know its only a matter of time before someone puts together a web page where you can type in a name/email and see if they had a parler account, what they posted, who they followed, etc, which will be used by HR departments/hiring managers around the world to screen people. While i think people that break laws should be prosecuted and deserve to be shamed, i don't like the idea of "ideology lists" like this.

    Your company would have to be pretty messed up to hire based on ideology.

    Could you imagine if every company was run like the CBE or AHS?

    horseshoe theory. Extreme right and extreme left are actually closer in beliefs/values than most people think. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this guy was a bernie bro back in 2016.

    If he's a wingnut conspiracy guy, I could see him not trusting pesticides, etc. Too many 5g's in that stuff.

    Pretty much started with Facebook. Companies have been using social media to sift through their applicants for over a decade.

    CNN (oh noooooo MSM) did a supercut of republicans predicting Trump being Trump back before he got the nomination. Crazy seeing how many of them flipped; always party over anything.

    From my estimation, the US media system wins - even over presidents.

    You'd probably be wise to reduce your consumption of CNN to...oh...zero.

    You can stick to alternative news all you want but it doesn't change the fact that everyone was plain as day against Trump until he won the nomination then they all flipped to suck his tit.

    Let's not play too fast and loose with the term "news" while discussing CNN.

    He's either batshit crazy or a very good actor, he went on Alex Jones' show and went on a rant about Ley Lines and spiritual energies. Made for very good listening, Jones fucking hates Q (mostly because they are sucking away paying customers). Ended with Jones screaming at the guy for believing in conspiracies

    No one is asking what Rosie O'Donnel thinks about this.
