Mark Meckler is interim CEO of Parler, a conservative alternative to Twitter that's been yanked from app stores run by Google and Apple and dropped by Amazon's web-hosting services, and in 2009 he founded the Tea Party Patriots, which, like Parler, is blamed for the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, where supporters of Donald Trump protested his presidential defeat.
