Amazon Takes Monopoly Action to Deplatform Parler Web Hosting
Amazon has informed Parler that it’ll be deplatformed from the monopoly’s web hosting services on Saturday, cowing to the demands of left-wing censorship advocates that the free speech social media platform.
“Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms. It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service,” an email to Parler administration from Amazon reads. “We cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others,” the email reads. “Because Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend Parler’s account effective Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST.”
The action shows the liabilities of Parler, having contracted with a globalist monopoly to host site content. Parler enforces rules against violent speech as part of its terms and conditions, and Amazon claims that the alt-tech platform’s practices of using a community of volunteers to moderate content are insufficient.
Parler has a large user base, and may ultimately prove capable of obtaining new web hosting that ensures internet freedom.
The rigged oligarchy could never have been more obvious. The episode serves as a vindication of Gab, which wholly owns it own web hosting services.
Parler CEO John Matze has pledged that the platform will return to the internet within a week’s time.
