Probably for the best.

From what I saw of Parler in my brief sojourn back in 2020 it was a cesspit, just as bad as the worst of Twitter.

It's basically a "hard right" version of Twitter and the accusations that there is racism and antisemitism on it were, sadly, 100% accurate at least back then, I have not been back since 2020 so, maybe they have changed but I would really doubt it.
