Amazon Will Suspend Parler From AWS Web Hosting

Spread the love

John Pazkowski, reporting for BuzzFeed News:

Amazon on Saturday kicked Parler off its Web hosting services.
Parler, a social network favored by conservative politicians and
extremists, was used to help plan and coordinate the January 6
attempted coup on Washington D.C. It has recently been overrun
with messages encouraging “Patriots” to march on Washington D.C.
with weapons on January 19.

Amazon’s suspension of Parler’s account means that unless it can
find another host, once the ban takes effect on Sunday Parler will
go offline.

Bye-bye, Nazis.

(And trust me, having spent more time today digging into Parler than I’d recommend to anyone, Parler is a haven for fucking Nazis. Like, however many Nazis you think are cavorting on Parler — and let’s just say for the sake of argument that you’re a pessimist and you think there are a lot of them — there are more than you think.)
