Today’s blacklisted Americans: Democrats go after Parler and its investors
Robert Zimmerman, Behind the Black, Mar 26, 2021

In February Democratic Party congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-New York) and her fellow Democrats demanded the social media platform Parler provide Congress a detailed list of all its investors and creditors, while also demanding the FBI investigate the company.

The Democratic Party demands were based on an outright falsehood, that Parler was part of a conspiracy to overthrow the government during the protests at the Capitol on January 6th. …

Look for more such attacks from the left, all aimed at discrediting and blackballing the company, all using this variation of the well-known McCarthy-era question: “Are you now or have you ever been a supporter or user of Parler?”

Since then, we’ve heard nothing from Durham, moving Donald Trump to ask whether Durham even exists. In fact, there is a theory that Durham doesn’t exist. Instead, says the theory, he’s a made-up figure created solely to push a fake narrative about a non-existent investigation.
