“In those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything his own. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech; a thing terrible to publick traytors.”
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.”

If I had to guess, it's not going to happen until it hits US availability zones. Either Eastern or Pacific time, depending on how they set the job up to turn the host off. Will take a bit to replicate out to DNS, although I imagine Google DNS is already killing traffic there.
Have you ever actually been on it, Parler, Voat, or GAB? It's DISGUSTING. Basically platforms for people to use the n-word as often as possible, and call for the slaughter of gays. I DO frequent these places as an opposition troll.

Yesterday we had Apple and Google getting rid of the Parler app, and some members brought up that it wasn't really an issue because we could still get on the website.
well guess what...
Amazon has kicked Parler off their webhosting service, meaning the platform will be offline until they find a new host.
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.
That leads closer to the dire scenario that I brought up...that this could only be the next step, with ISPs eventually refusing to allow it

Amazon just lost all of my business...a substantial amount of business.
I won't support a company that advocates censorship and bigotry.
I like using Amazon, but since you said that, how can I support them.
