Parler Made Over 50 FBI Referrals Ahead Of Capitol Riot

( Parler shocked Democrats and left-wing activists this week after the contents of a letter to the chair of the U.S. Committee on Oversight and Reform revealed how the alternative social media company made more than 50 referrals to the FBI of users promoting violent content ahead of the January 6 Capitol Hill riot.

The letter, dated February 8th, was sent by Parler to Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney and revealed the efforts the social media platform took to inform law enforcement of people using their platform to promote violence.

That’s a pretty bold move for a platform that Democrats claim incites and supports violence…

Investigative journalist Nick Monroe wrote for The Post Millennial that Parler used the letter to deny any collusion with Russia – a smear directed at most people and companies even remotely connected to former President Donald Trump – and dismissed incorrect claims that they attempted to blackmail the former president to take an active role in the company.

“Parler’s response then goes into how it came off in the aftermath of January 6th that Parler as a platform was a scapegoat. Even though now we know that Facebook was a primary platform of organization for rally/riot-related activities,” Monroe continued.

Parler’s response to Chairwoman Maloney showed just how serious the collusion between the media and Big Tech is, given how badly the platform was smeared in the wake of the January 6 riots.

The company described in its response that it had grown substantially in the latter half of 2020, and “took the extraordinary initiative to develop formal lines of communication with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) to facilitate proactive cooperation and referrals of violent threats and incitement to law enforcement.”

Their response goes on to add that in the days and weeks leading up to January 6, representatives of the company “referred violent content from its platform to the FBI for investigation over 50 times.”

Parler even alerted law enforcement to specific threats of violence that were being planned at the Capitol on its platform.

It’s precisely the kind of action that a platform that supposedly endorses violence wouldn’t take.

Copies of the emails sent to law enforcement and FBI officials were attached in the letter to prove it, too.

“In an effort to efficiently streamline communication with the FBI, I’d like to establish a working relationship with you since you work in our territory of responsibility,” one email from November 29, 2020 reads. “If I may suggest, I’d like to propose we meet in the future over a lunch so we can get to know each other better, and I can answer any questions you may have in the future.”

Parler also explained how they alerted the FBI in December 2020 about “alarming content that included specific threats of organized violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 20201,” citing a specific example of a post forwarded to the FBI from December 24. The post came from a user who called for the congregation of an armed force of 150,000 people on the Virginia side of the Potomac River.

So, can we stop with the lies that Parler endorses violence, now?
