In order to ensure that conservatives “have the right to express themselves online”
Kanye West intends to buy Parler, the social platform dear to the American far right, in order to ensure that conservatives “have the right to express themselves online”. The announcement comes a few days after Instagram and Twitter removed anti-Semitic posts by the African American musician, who legally changed his name to Yen, and temporarily blocked his accounts.
The company that owns Parler, Parlement Technologies, has confirmed “an agreement in principle” for the purchase by West, noting that the partnership “will ensure Parler a future role in creating a non-cancellable ecosystem in all entries are welcomed. George Farmer, CEO of Parler, later stated in a tweet that “Ye is making a groundbreaking move in the space of freedom of expression and will never have to fear being removed from social media again.”
A path similar to that of Donald Trump, of which West is a great supporter and friend, who once banned from the main social networks, created his personal Truth. But the rapper’s recent grossly anti-Semitic outings would have been too much for the former president who, Rolling Stones reveals, would have confided to several people that West is “freaking out” and that he would need help.
