Parler CEO John Matze has responded to Amazon kicking the platform off their hosting services, calling it an attack on competition.
Not is it that, but it was an assault on the First Amendment. It’s time to break up the monopolies and to send its executives to prison for their anti-trust behavior.
If we don’t, we have lost our country.
Amazon has announced that they will no longer be hosting Parler on its servers and it could take a week or more to find a suitable platform and to set it up.
Until then, Parler will be off the net. Then they should levy fines large enough to make it hurt. The revocation of Section 230 will also be a must. But don’t expect anything to happen within the next four years.
The 2020 election was greatly aided by the Big Tech companies because they did not allow competing narratives or the truth about the Biden scandals.
A poll found that 17% of Biden voters would not have voted for him had they been aware of the Bidens’ connections to China or the contents of Hunter’s laptop.
The ban goes into effect on Sunday, effectively shutting down the platform that conservatives have flocked to since the big tech giants began banning conservatives.
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.”
