In an example of Tech Tyranny and Mass coordinated cyber attack by Big Tech against Pro-Conservative Platform Parler, Amazon has refused to host Parler and has also halted support for Parler, dealing a major blow to a social-media service that has soared in popularity among conservatives and escalating a campaign by tech giants to regulate content they see as going against the Leftist/Liberal ideology.
Amazon said Saturday it would no longer provide cloud-computing services to Parler, and Apple suspended the company’s app from the App Store.
The announcements from Amazon and Apple come a day after Alphabet Inc.’s Google suspended Parler from its Play Store app marketplace, citing violations of requirements for sufficient moderation of content for apps it distributes. The move from Google didn’t affect Parler’s availability on the internet or in other Android app stores, Google said.

Amazon on Saturday night suspended the social media platform Parler from its web hosting service, an Amazon spokesperson confirmed it.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Trust and Safety team sent an email to Parler Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff explaining their decision.
“Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms,” the email, obtained, reads. “It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service.”
The email goes on to state that Parler will be available to web hosting service users until Sunday at 11:59 p.m. PST when the suspension goes into effect. It means the Parler platform will be offline until they find a new host.
A spokesperson for Amazon/AWS, in a statement, confirmed the email.
Parler CEO John Matze also confirmed the news in a post on his platform, calling the suspension “an attempt to completely remove free speech from the internet.”
In a post on Parler, Matze wrote that “Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.”
“We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies,” the statement continued.
Matze concluded that “this was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.”
Amazon’s suspension of Parler’s account means the app is at risk of going offline on Sunday night.
As it seeks a new host, Parler may be unavailable as it rebuilds from scratch, Matze said, although many providers are “competing” for its business. “This was a coordinated attack by tech giants to kill competition in the marketplace,” Matze said in his announcement.
In a post on Parler about Apple’s decision to ban them from the app store earlier in the day, CEO John Matze wrote, “Apple will be banning Parler until we give up free speech, institute broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook and we become a surveillance platform by pursuing guilt of those who use Parler before innocence.”
“They claim it is due to violence on the platform. The community disagrees as we hit number 1 on their store today. The same day ‘Hang Mike Pence’, a disgusting violent suggestion, was trending nationally on Twitter. Displaying the horrible double standard Apple and their big tech pack apply to the community,” the statement continued. “Apple, a software monopoly, provides no alternatives to installing apps on your phone other then their store. We do not own our phones, Apple simply rents them to us. Apple, Google and the rest of the anti-competitive pack of big tech tyrants coordinate their moves and work together to stifle competition in the marketplace.”
“More details about our next plans coming soon as we have many options,” Matze concluded.
Amazon is the latest tech giant to take steps to limit the social networking app favored by conservatives and right-wing groups for lack of content moderation. The online retailer follows in the footsteps of Apple, which suspended the Parler app Saturday morning, and Google, which removed the platform from its app store on Friday night.
Parler being a pro-conservative App, has come under attacks from Leftist/Liberals in the wake of the violent attacks on the U.S. Capitol after various media outlets have reported that Parler was used to help coordinate the riots. However till now no action was taken against Twitter and other Leftist/Liberal run social media apps that promoted violence by Antifa Terrorists or BLM supporters.
Parler has faced what can only be described as a mass coordinated cyber attack by Big Tech, first being banned by Apple and Google within a 24 hour time period.
Amazon’s employees had been lobbying for the platform to be booted so that they could further silence their political adversaries.
Of course, they did no such bans when Black Lives Matter was planning riots across Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tik Tok last year.
The ban goes into effect on Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST.
Points to Ponder
Since Tech Giants have entered into Politically motivated fight against the Conservatives/Republicans/Patriots/Nationalists to show Tech Tyranny, does that mean that in future Conservatives/Republicans/Patriots/Nationalists will have to explore options other than the Leftist/Liberal tech giants and stop doing business with Leftist/Liberals?
