Authors On Parler

Posted in Uncategorized

Content Warning: hate speech of any flavor

IMPORTANT UPDATE 12/4/2020: It appears that some early-adopter accounts may have been compromised by bots. The list has been updated to reflect this.

This is a controversial post. I know that before writing it because people have told me that it’s controversial.

“I think putting people on a list is childish and unnecessary,” one person told me. “You’re going to name names and hurt someone’s career!” another said. Of course, the old chestnuts “freedom of speech!” and “just because they have a different opinion!” came up.

They were talking about my plans to out authors who joined Parler in the days after Donald Trump’s landslide failure in the 2020 presidential election.

For those unacquainted with the dregs of the internet, Parler is a Facebook alternative that brings together the worst of QAnon, MAGA, militia aficionados, Christian Dominionists, and more white supremacists than you can shake a blue lives matter flag at. Feeling “censored” by Facebook’s policy of gently suggesting that users double-check some of the baseless, absurd, and dangerous propaganda the right cranked out on the platform by the minute.

It is here I would like to point out the irony of people so invested in free speech not understanding what the First Amendment actually says. And I would like to reiterate that Facebook didn’t remove anyone’s content or prevent them from sharing it. They simply put a little note at the bottom of articles, memes, and lengthy diatribes that stated some of the information included wasn’t the truth when it was, in fact, not the truth. It wasn’t freedom of speech that these people had an issue with. It was the fact that they weren’t being allowed to spread hate, disinformation, wild conspiracy theories, and absurdly transparent calls to violent insurrection or the assassination of political figures as irrefutable truth that made them take their toys and run off to their hate circle.

Again: these are people so invested in destroying any non-white, non-straight, non-Protestant person in the country that they feel any attempt to correct or question their deliberate lies and destructive conspiracy theories was an attack on their personal liberty. By not tacitly accepting that what they are fighting for–genocide, eugenics, torture, tyranny, religious persecution, martial law, the list goes on and sinks lower–is righteous and unimpeachable, the word is ripping away their freedom.

They do not consider themselves free if they are not allowed to harm anyone who doesn’t look, act, and believe exactly as they do.

They do not consider themselves free if they are not allowed to kill, see killing, threaten to kill, or celebrate killing.

But these are the people that I, a queer, disabled person, should treat with the grace of anonymity. The people I should work alongside, potentially meet at industry functions. The people who should be celebrated by readers, who should have an easy path to success because…

Why?

Why should we not name the names of people who will happily show up to a book convention and sit beside a marginalized author, smile sweetly, take pictures, then immerse themself in the comforting embrace of free speech like:

  • “For everything that is wrong with this world there is a jew behind it.”
  • “I love laying in bed and rubbing my wet pussy to officers killing n***** men.”
  • “N***** lives don’t matter.”
  • “AIDS kills f*** dead.”
  • “THIS ISN’T OVER YET – NEVER BET AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP! WE ARE MANY – WE ARE MIGHTY WE ARE ARMED – WE ARE UNITED WE ARE TRUMP PATRIOTS – AND WE ARE PISSED! #SayYourPrayersDemocrats #MayGodHaveMercyOnYourSoulBecauseWeWont”
  • “Let’s see them try to enter the people house and attempt to remove our President, a National Treasure!!! Death will become them!”
  • “This woman is Evil Incarnate. We Cannot Allow This Satanic Shill To Enter Office. (Kamala Harris’ eyes turn completely black several times during this interview, she is full of unclean spirits ECHO THIS PLEASE)”
  • “Voting will not remove them. The only things n****** understand are pain and fear”
  • “IN WAR, IT’S KILL OR BE KILLED. WE NEED 50 MILLION ARMED AMERICAN PATRIOTS TO STORM DC AND KILL ALL THE SWAMP CRIMINALS NOW!!!!!!!!!!”

What was that, people who were horrified at the idea of naming names? Oh, you thought Parler was just the garden variety dog whistles you’re comfortable ignoring?

And this is the stuff in public posts made by users of the site. One can only imagine what kind of horror show goes on behind the locked accounts.

Marginalized people should not, will not, and cannot take a stance of non-involvement and polite tolerance toward people whose sole motivation is our total eradication. Asking us to do so is actively protecting the goals of these people. If your first thought upon seeing this list is, “That’s not nice,” then congratulations: you’re complicit.

But I know the perfect social media site for you to join.

Criteria for inclusion:

Because authors make their money off the internet and building a reader following, when a new platform pops up, we generally see them flock there. You never know when the next mega-platform will pop up, and being an early adopter comes with an initial lack of competition for views. Plus, other platforms have a habit of applying advertising and content rules haphazardly, often punishing authors for sharing excerpts or covers that are too racy. It made sense for many erotic romance authors to try out Parler two years ago; for them to still be there, they must have a damn good reason.

For an author’s name to be included on this list, their Parler account must include one or more of the following:

  • Posts or “echoes” of hate speech
  • Posts or “echoes” of election disinformation
  • A “following” list featuring at least two right-wing provocateurs, i.e., accounts following Donald Trump, InfoWars, or any QAnon accounts are automatically included regardless of original content posted by the user
  • A post-election “joined” date
  • A locked account
  • An announcement on other platforms directing readers to the author’s Parler account for reasons described in the introduction to this post

What are some reasons an author might have a Parler account and not be included in the list?

  • The account is an early adopt that hasn’t been updated frequently
  • The account doesn’t follow anyone
  • There are no posts/”echoes”
  • The author’s body of work is self-explanatory

The authors in question must also be published (either indie or traditional) or in the process of querying; we’re not gonna wait for these people to get book deals.

I came up with these criteria based on things I saw on the site itself, as well as from defenses used by authors and readers. Here are some examples:

  • Jamie Mcguire has a locked account with a verified badge. One of her readers argued that because Facebook removes ad content it deems inappropriate, McGuire was forced to switch platforms in order to advertise her books and publicize herself. This would be more believable if the account wasn’t behind a lock on a website that doesn’t allow access to anyone who doesn’t have a user account. Because that rationale makes absolutely no sense at all, she is on the list.
  • Jim Butcher has a Parler account. It is not verified. He joined in August of 2020. He follows no one. The only post on his account is the default post the site makes to get you started. He is not on the list.
  • Laura Loomer has a book coming out in 2021. She doesn’t need to be on the list because she calls herself a “proud Islamaphobe” and has built her entire brand on her profound hatred. Including her would be redundant. Yes, she’s a bigot and an author; no, she is not on the list.
  • A handful of authors on Parler really do seem to be there just to talk about writing and promote their books. They don’t follow any red-flag accounts, they don’t post weird stuff about killing their fellow citizens in an orgy of patriotism and finally getting to use all those bullets they’ve invested in. They’re just there. Maybe they’re there for nefarious purposes, but there’s no way to prove it. They’re not on the list.
  • Some authors expressed dismay at the fact that they’d joined the site in its early days and didn’t realize what it was for. Usually, their accounts were barely used or completely scrubbed of posts. If I can’t prove a person is there with malicious intent, they’re not on the list.

After nearly a month of combing hashtags and search terms, these are the names on the list. They are not in alphabetical order because for some reason, after reading about how I should die, how my friends should die, how half the country should be murdered, etc.? It just seemed like the straw of work that would break my back.

Please also note: it’s become something of a trend to use initials or close spellings to game search engine and retailer algorithms. Please be absolutely certain that you’ve done your own due diligence. This isn’t a list of hot gossip; this is a list of people who pose a danger to their fellow authors.

    JFC. There’s a good few on here I am NOT surprised about. NOT AT ALL.

    Also… it also confirms some feeling I have had about these people in the past… And reinforces my own reasons to keep them from anything I do and any event I put on.

    Jenny, Biden did NOT have a landslide victory. Record numbers of voters, especially new voters, turned out to vote for Trump. Biden won by a hair — it’s the ridiculousness of the electoral college that made it look like a landslide. Biden had 50.X% of the popular vote. Trump had 48%. I was and am CRUSHED. I was so certain Biden WOULD win in a landslide*. Instead, I found out that almost 50% of Americans WANT concentration camps for refugees and deportation of LatinX LOOKING people and police murdering black people. That’s what we need to be afraid of.

        Any victory for Biden, even had it been by the 60 popular votes needed (in the right places) to win every Electoral vote, would have been a personally crushing defeat for Trump. I haven’t seen it in my US headline news alerts, but it’s all over the European news that he’s trying to bribe the electors into voting for him. It turns out that an elector voting for the opposite candidate they were sent to vote for is a misdemeanor and a fine.

        But it’s a landslide WIN for the racists in the US. To know that all those new voters and high voter turnout was for TRUMP. Again, 48% of the US WANTED MORE. More quasi-military firing on peaceful protests. More cops murdering POC. More torturing and raping refugees and their children. That high a % means that on the bluest street in the bluest city, at least two houses are owned by bigots who want more of this. By roughly 7pm EST, I was sick to my stomach at how CLOSE this election was. I thought Americans were better than that. But it turns out half of us are neo-Nazis. Sorry, “white nationalists.”

          The only good thing about knowing that nearly 50 percent of USAmericans voted for Trump this time, plus the House gains for the GOP is — maybe the Republicans can cut the voter suppression tactics.

          Sheesh, record turnout and they did well! Turns out more people like anti-labor, anti-family, pro-billionaire, anti-everyone-else policies (plus the racism, homophobia, and xenophobia) than anyone would have guessed, including Republicans themselves.

          I’m deeply disturbed. But it seems like the GOP can definitely stop worrying that letting people vote is a guaranteed loss for them.

          I think a large portion of those who voted for Trump didn’t like him, but didn’t care because he gave them what they want. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse than the fanatical devotion. Worse maybe, because they know better. They admit he’s a lying POS but are more concerned about themselves. They don’t care about all the horrible things he’s done, because they can ignore them and not be affected in their personal lives.

            I agree completely with this.

            A former friend of mind thought nothing of handwaving nearly a quarter of a million (at that time) covid deaths, nationwide voter suppression, eugenics, concentration camps, lynchings (police-sanctioned or otherwise), treason, bounties on troops’ heads and other Trumpist atrocities because “taxes.”

            People in groups to which neither she or anyone she loves or cares about belongs are being terrorized, starved and slaughtered all around her but she’s perfectly fine with all that so long as her tax bill goes down.

            She decries programs like food stamps and uses terms like “Robinhood” when discussing the social safety net but, by her own admission, hasn’t lifted a finger as a gainfully employed citizen for as long as I’ve been alive, and I’m in my late thirties.

            I guess her life-long dependence on others for the basics is a-okay because she, unlike those mostly brown, mostly foreign (her assumption, not mine) “welfare moochers” is a real American and deserves to be fed, clothed and sheltered while someone else goes out and earns money.

          I also am extremely disappointed so many people voted for Trump. I’d just like to point out, though, that 48% of the voters is not 48% of all Americans. The US population was approximately 328 million in 2019, of which 74 million are under the age of 18. That leaves 254 million voting age adults, and 74 million voted for Trump. So that’s about 29% of all Americans that voted for him, not 48%. Almost one third of all adults in the US voting for Trump is horrific, but not as bad as thinking almost half the population voted for him.

        I thought it was because they sucked so publicly. Orson Scott Card ran a huge anti-homosexual campaign against CA’s gay marriage statute, and Larry Correia and Vox Dei were the organizers trying to game the Hugo awards into voting for sexist, racist authors because “the PC police” had taken over the Hugos. They don’t need a new platform to spew on, they have been just fine spewing everywhere else.

    For those who are “keeping a list”, I have a plugin built for FireFox and for Chrome that can be added to your browser to help you keep track of the names. It’s free and does NOT keep any personal data (which is a minor hinderence).

    What it does is, on book pages on Amazon (sorry doesn’t work on other sites yet), it will rename the text on your “buy it now” button to say “Author is on your Avoid List” should you have that option selected.

    To add a name or remove a name from the list, you click the button under the author name. The button will say “Add/Remove name”.

    I have lots of enhancements planned for the software but it is limited in its features currently.

    Please take a look

    Is there a reason why you chose to censor the word ‘Jew’?
    It isn’t a slur or a degretory name any more then a Christian, Muslim, or a member of any other religion.

    (While often regarded as an ethnicity, that is incorrect, the ethnic group is called Hebrew)

    As a Jew, I don’t think my religious affiliation is something to be ashamed of,
    and censoring it, particularly with the next censored word being the N-word, which is regarded as a slur, does not speak kindly about ‘Jew”s regard.

      I censored it because of the context. Much in the way I wouldn’t censor the n-word coming from a Black person, I wouldn’t consider Jew a slur except in blatantly anti-semitic contexts like controlling all the money in the world or being lizard people. I hope that kind of explains it; I’ve seen some Jewish people on social media say it makes them uncomfortable to see gentiles use it so I was trying to mitigate harm there and clearly swung the pendulum too far. When I’m at the computer I’ll change it. Thanks for the heads up.

    It’s always amazing how often the difference between free-speech and consequence-free speech needs to be explained to these people.

    I also love the “just because they disagree with you” defense against callout culture.

    The standard we walk past is the standard we except, and there are simply some things about which disagreement is problematic, even dangerous.

    Thank you, Jenny, for being willing to name names so that potential readers know whom to not spend their money on.

    The good thing is that, with exception to Jamie, I haven’t run across any of the other names on the list.

    You might also check out Brad R. Torgerson or any of the sad/rabid puppies (anyone familiar with the Hugo’s will know who and what I mean).

    Hey Jenny,

    I want to thank you for compiling such a great list. I have to check out all these people so I can follow them. I expect to see many great books!

    Oh, you can add me to the list as well. I’m sure you will not like my writing and I’m on Parler as well. I want to suffer with my fellow content creators for being brave and standing up to people like you. I can finally know what Moses felt when he went into the slave pits with his fellow Israelites, being whipped by the oppressive Egyptians.

    So you are going to “out” people who ideologically aren’t in lockstep with you.

    Posts or “echoes” of what YOU consider hate speech
    Posts or “echoes” of what YOU election disinformation
    A “following” list featuring at least two people YOU consider right-wing provocateurs, (including the President of the United States).
    A post-election “joined” date
    A locked account where YOU can’t tell if they violated YOUR arbitrary rules.
    An announcement on other platforms directing readers to the author’s Parler account for reasons described in the introduction to this post

    So I think what I’m going to do is go to Amazon.com, and start rating each of your books. I’m also going to encourage all of my “right wing provocateur” friends on Parler to do the same.

      Ok, I am deeply confused here. Yes, Jenny put together a list of people with whom she is ideologically opposed.

      This is “outing”? In the first place, are these people hiding? In the second place, aren’t they posting publicly? So… they are “out” already?

      I mean, if I put together a list of conservative US Senators and said they were conservative and people shouldn’t vote for them, have I “outed” them?

      I really don’t think you understand what “outed” means.

      Finally, a comparable action to Jenny’s would be to, on your public blog, explain why you disagree with her and find her morally repugnant. That is a proportionate and appropriate response. I don’t know what you mean by “punishment” but going to a third party site to write negative reviews of books you haven’t read because you don’t agree with the author’s politics is a significant step further than saying so on, say, Parler or your own blog.

          I didn’t ever advise you to make a list. I said you had a problem with Jenny, and that the proportional response was to respond to Jenny. There is nowhere where I suggested you make a list. I also pointed out that people who make public statements under their own names are not hiding and therefore can’t be outed. And yes, the US government offers lists of senators and representatives by party. Still not a suggestion that you should make a list.

          But please feel free to trash Jenny to the sky on your own blog. Again, a proportionate response.

      As your lot is so fond of saying, fuck your feelings.

      And if you had the courage of your convictions, you’d have put your government or pennames to the whiny gobbets of feculence you smeared all over this thread.

      There’s being “out of step” ideologically and there’s objectively evil.

      Most Trumpists fall into the latter category. Anyone defending the garbage quoted in the entry does as well.

      defending this president and his genocidal, treasonous behavior is inherently evil and deserves to be exposed and dragged all over the internet.

I know many blacks that also voted for him, so in my family and I’m white. (there goes your racist card).

    Facebook and Twitter did remover the post from the New York Times and from anyone else who tried to post it regarding Hunter Biden before the election regarding his involvement in selling time with his father in emails on those computers is and was election interference. It’s not their place to decide what we should or should not see.

    To conclude ”yes” I’m a Trump supporter! There is also a whole Democratic movement that walked away actually called ”Walked Away” full of all races and LGBTQ because they have found a none-judging community that does support their right to choose. Look it up!

      It’s amazing how many right-wingers don’t get that citing marginalized communities’ votes for Trump doesn’t strike the blow they think it does.

      All you’re saying is that a bunch of people decided to vote against their own interests, votes that, in most cases, were informed by self-loathing.

      White supremacy among communities of color is an actual phenomenon, one many righties like to ignore when trying to exculpate themselves and the republican party as a whole from the profound and far-reaching consequences of homophobia, xenophobia, misogyny, anti-Semitism and other ideological cancers designed to disempower groups to which they don’t belong.

      Also, the false equivalence is as yawn-worthy as it is predictable.

This is shockingly hateful. Considering you yourself are a writer, it seems like poor judgment to trample on other writers trying to get ahead when you yourself are…hmmm….lemme think. Oh yeah.

        Another false equivalence loving, white supremacy apologist heard from.

        As your post handily proves, most Trumpists are dangerous, unempathetic people who would like nothing more than to see anyone who isn’t white, moneyed, straight, able bodied or male either disempowered or wiped off the face of the planet.

        To them, anyone not born in America or part of the “appropriate “religious group is something less than human and, in the case of non-Americans or (insert non-approved faith here) of the brown variety, should be forcibly prevented from procreating less the white majority in this country be threatened.

        I also find it rather telling that not a single one of the anti-Semitism, homophobia or white supremacy apologists trolling this thread have uttered a single word of criticism of the posts quoted in the entry.

        Apparently, authors allying themselves with people joking about how aids kill F** dead or asserting that n** lives don’t matter are less “hateful” than someone drawing attention to authors who want to see several segments of the American population either disenfranchised, deported, imprisoned or dead.

        Do you even realize how stupid, oblivious and downright evil you look defending these people?

        Do you know how transparent you all are?

        Do you really think your false equivalencies or accusations of hatefulness mean fuck all to people who’ve watched your chosen candidate and his acolytes commit human rights violation after human rights violation in the name of making America white again?

        Do you really think they matter coming from people who, in all likelihood, are either sympathetic to or part of militia groups whose first priority will be to launch a 2nd civil war (it’ll be interesting since the NFAC will be in play and liberals have guns, too) because people not of their tribe participated in a free and fair election that Trump lost?

        I wish even one of you spineless Trumpist trolls would just come out and applaud this language.

        It’s clear that you agree with every one of those sentiments; this is where your outrage at Jenny is coming from.

        You’re not pissed about some professional faux pas; you’re pissed that a woman with whom you disagree politically had the temerity to speak up about those whose politics you like.

        Most of you are incurious, status anxious social Darwinists crouching protectively over social, cultural and economic privileges you received by virtue of your skin color.

        Obama’s election and reelection terrified and enraged you because, up to that point, it was understood that the Oval Office was only for folks who looked like you.

        Trump was punishment, a reminder to uppity brown people that whites were the most valuable demographic on US soil.

        This election stomped all over that with Kamala Harris’s ascendence to the office of VP and Trump’s being fired from his own reality show.

        There is nothing admirable or redeemable about Trumpism or its profound and far-reaching consequences for marginalized groups, and the folks quoted above are not outliers.

        Don’t believe me? Just check out the Trumpist posts on this thread, yours included.

        Bottom line, thanks for playing.

            And yet constantly the threat is there. Are you saying we shouldn’t take the threats seriously? In that case, given how regularly mass shootings are occurring in the US, maybe you could tell us a foolproof way to establish when such threats are real and when they’re not.

            If you believe there is going to a bunch of mass shootings, you will create the environment that it will happen because we all create self-fulfilling prophecies.

            We may not get what we want in life but we usually get what we expect.

            If you constantly expect the worst, you will only get the worst.

            The world is in transition right now, but I believe it will be a much better world after it. We just need to go through some very difficult times to get there.

            I don’t believe there are going TO BE a bunch of mass shootings. I KNOW there HAVE BEEN 587 mass shootings in 2020 (as of November 30, and defined as four or more injured). I also know that lots of those were foreshadowed by threats.

            Since exactly nothing has changed in 2020, and since people are still making such threats, then yes, I believe that many of those making the threats will follow through.

            If all it takes is for me to “believe” that mass shootings will happen, then I will happily disbelieve it. But as long as they keep happening without my input, and as long as zero steps are taken to prevent them, then I have no reason to believe they will stop.

            It’s an incredible amount of power I have, according to you. My belief that past is future unless something changes is apparently enough to place a gun in someone’s hands, lead them to a public place, and cause them to pull a trigger. No need for gun control or societal change, it’s clearly the fault of those of us who understand statistics.

            I don’t think I need to tell you, it was the democrats who said – let’s defund the police. And since they did that, murders and mass shootings went skyrocketing.

            So, yes, you did cause more mass shootings, because you want to save the feelings of a bunch of criminals who shouldn’t be on the street.

            Only 5% of the population is sociopathic or psychopathic, and they are almost always criminals. In fact, there is a direct causal link. All mass shooters are sociopaths – and all sociopaths are quiet capable of that level of violence.

            95% of people don’t want violence because we have empathy. I don’t wish harm for anyone, and most people on Parler don’t wish harm on anyone.

            No side is more or less moral than the other. When you have a mass group of people, there will always be psychopaths and sociopaths.

            Please come back to reality. Most people on the right don’t want to see you in pain or suffering. Some might, just like some on the left probably want to see me and everyone on this list in a gulag.

    “You’re fascists. You tried to overthrow our democracy. I’m proud to hate you.”

    Actually, fascists strived to control social & cultural life/institutions.(1) Much in the same way that the current US left is dictating the opinion whilst denouncing the opposite OPINION(!) as wrongthink. Exactly as you’re trying to do here, by denouncing an entire platform and it’s contributors on the basis that some of the people on the platform are bad.
    You’re generalizing to the point where it’s similar to saying a city is filled with murderers because murders occur there.
    Besides, by adding your voice to the platform you can change the monotony that you complain about, parler doesn’t purge as twitter does so atleast it’s open to anyone!

    On the ‘you tried to overthrow our democracy’ part, that’s literally what both sides are claiming right now which is why the election results should be thoroughly vetted by checking signatures and following up by calling a large percentage of random voters (not a few 1000, I mean 100.000s in many places of the country).

    You might not even know how coloured the information you’re ingesting is. Depending on your location, upbringing, family, you’re divided into an echo bubble when you enter social media. Algorithms then make you more extreme, as those videos are the ones you are more likely to click on. I think the social dilemma mentions it?

    Please translate & read this Dutch article on Fascism to get a better understanding of it’s nature, it’s neither left nor right, socialist nor communist, liberal nor capitalist in nature: https://historiek.net/fascisme-ontstaan-betekenis-en-kenmerken/81594/
