No, far-left billionaire George Soros does NOT own the non-establishment social media platform Parler.

On Wednesday a bizarre rumor emerged on Twitter that Soros, a far-left zealot, owns Parler. The rumor erupted into life thanks to a fake Fox News screenshot that contained a chyron that identified Soros as Parler’s owner.

“Fox News Confirms: George Soros Is Majority Owner Of New Social Platform,” the fake chyron read.

Look:

Predictably, the rumor spread like wildfire among the same breed of leftists who condescendingly believe that Parler is a “safe space” for conservatives.

Look:

The real “#irony” is the lack of critical thinking skills among some people …

In a Parler post published Wednesday, Parler CEO John Matze debunked this conspiracy theory.

The ownership structure of Parler is myself, a small group of close friends and employees. Additionally, Parler has 2 strategic investors. Dan Bongino & Jeffrey Wernick,” he wrote.

Parler has NOT been sold. These are malicious lies intended to damage and malign the brand of Parler. Anyone claiming otherwise is a hoaxer and most likely acting from malice. This is the length enemies of free speech will go to try to take down the ONLY platform that protects your speech, privacy and data. Parler.”

Matze added that the Fox News image was likely “photoshopped.”

“I highly doubt Fox News would report something like this,” he wrote.

Conservative commentator Dan Bongino, who purchased a share in Parler earlier this year, made the same point on Twitter.

Look:

Note what he wrote about “dealing with” this sort of stuff “all week.”

Twitter’s relentless censorship of dissenting ideas and indisputable facts has in recent days inspired an exodus of conservatives from Twitter to Parler.

In response, the left-wing establishment has pounced by smearing Parler as a “safe space” and “echo chamber” for conservatives.

Case in point:

This is what they always do. They purposefully silence dissident voices — particularly conservatives ones — on establishment platforms, and then when these voices uproot and relaunch on non-establishment platforms where they may speak freely, establishment critics accuse them of fleeing to a “safe space.”

It’s disingenuous rhetoric that’s designed to marginalize dissident voices, but it works nevertheless, likely because so many Americans lack critical thinking skills.

Among the dissident voices who’ve joined Parler is Sen. Rand Paul. While he joined the network after its inception in 2018, this week he urged conservatives to begin transitioning over there en masse because of Twitter’s growing censorship.

He issued the plea after Twitter tacked a fact-check warning to a tweet he’d posted Monday that was otherwise 100 percent actually accurate.

On Monday, the senator tweeted, “Your government sent 1.1 million dead people stimulus checks. Wonder how many of these folks also voted absentee?”

Look at Paul’s tweet below, and take note of the warning.

“This claim about election fraud is disputed,” the warning reads.

But the tweet was factually accurate.

“[A]s of April 30, 2020, almost 1.1 million payments totaling nearly $1.4 billion had gone to decedents,” a report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office published in June reads.

The senator responded to Twitter’s censorship the following evening:

By beginning a more permanent transition to Parler, he’s joined the likes of Dinesh D’Souza, Joy Villa and Reps. Lee Zeldin and Andy Biggs, among many others.

What you’re not likely to find on Parler, however, are any establishment media voices. But it’s not because they’re not allowed there:

It’s because they prefer their left-wing-controlled “safe space” on Twitter …
