They also allowed BLM and ANTIFA to plot and organize on their platforms. But let's not worry about the truth. The Truth is whatever Big Brother tells us it is, right?

Facebook and Twitter don't allow the "nut jobs and lunatics" to spread their dangerous rhetoric and plotting

SO you are DavidSt with a slightly better understanding of verb tenses.

RE: Parler
What about iPhones? Numerous terrorist have used iPhones to commit horrific acts of terror and Apple will not unlock their phones for investigators to search out accomplices. I’m interested libs, how do you feel about that? Should the iPhone be banned because REAL death and destruction was planned on their platform? Should cell companies refuse to allow Apple users on their systems?

RE: Parler
We are in the process of selecting a permanent cloud vendor, as we use several at the moment. AWS just got nixed and will no longer be considered. I will not consider any vendor who decides they can shut down an entity because they are butthurt over politics.

Sure they do. It just happens to be "their" nut jobs and lunatics". FFS, they allow the propaganda ministers and ayatollahs in Iran to rant about death to Americans and America, wiping the "Great Satan" from the earth and vaporizing Israel. The chinese to openly tweet and lie about everything they f$#^ing do. But the Trump is the real threat to America. Ummmm, k?

Or, was this ^^^ a sad attempt at humor?

I don't think it was an attempt at humor. I honestly belive they don't even realize their own hypocrisy. Either that are they know it but just don't care.

Eh, don't bring Bezos into it. The same people that love him for dropping Parler hate him for his wealth. Those people just live to hate, it'll be something new to hate soon.

Yea, well now they'll probably just come back and buy the company...

But, good. For whatever reason.

Amazing to recall that just a decade(?) ago Amazon started out by delivering books. Yup, remember? Books.

I don't either, but as the ever hopeful I thought I'd check. Couldn't really believe what I was reading so thought I give him an out, he's had a couple rough threads of late...

This is a ridiculous statement. Just like calling the capitol protestors "terrorists." It's insanely over the top. It's not sedition or an insurrection. It was a non-violent protest featuring trespassing. A form of civil disobedience. It is incredibly mild in nature when compared to the sustained violence from the left in major cities all summer which included arson of police vehicles and precincts, attacks with weapons and resulted in dozens of deaths.

The reason why the MSM and politicians are calling it "terrorism" because they want to use the name as a weapon against the capitol protestors. Get ready for Biden to roll out a Patriot Act 2.0, but this time targeting domestic dissent.

They may win, but their business may be destroyed long before that case settles.

They'll get an injuction on AWS to continue hosting. By the time they would need to move off, they will be flush with cash.

Thats what I think. Its almost certainly been filed with a friendly judge. It will only take a week to move Parler to another platform---so a one week injunction will probably diffuse the situation. Another case you may see---a class action anti-trust suit by users of Twitter and Facebook.
