Is Parler site being blocked by Xfinity?

No. I get to the site with no problem.
Perhaps your public / WAN IP address is being blocked by the host for some reason. The output of a traceroute to the domain may reveal where the blockage is occurring.

Hello, @user_9f7046; that's a good question! Comcast/Xfinity does not block any websites at this time. Are you getting any error messages?
@ComcastKaitlan Uhhh. Not blaming Comcast. Traceroute will reveal unbiased results.

I signed into my home wifi network and suddenly could not access Parler on my cellphone. I tried on the PC, directly connected to the network...same story. Turn wifi off...and it comes right up on my phone. If they are telling you they are not actively silencing users by blocking api.parler.com from resolving, they are lying.

This appears to be DNSSEC misconfiguration by Parler or its webhost:
C>nslookup parler.com 18.104.22.168Server: b.resolvers.Level3.netName: parler.comAddress: 22.214.171.124
C>nslookup parler.com 126.96.36.199Server: cdns01.comcast.netAddress: 188.8.131.52
*** cdns01.comcast.net can't find parler.com: Server failed
