Amazon is just another company ushering in censorship.
If you haven’t noticed already Parler has been cut off of Amazon’s servers making the social media platform unavailable to millions of users.
Parler has kicked off Amazon’s servers at midnight last night after Amazon accused Parler of not following their guidelines.
CEO John Matze said he will try to get Parler up and running ASAP but also said he’s finding a difficult time finding a large enough web hosting service that won’t ban him.

Fox News covered the disappointing news and released these details:
Alternative social media platform Parler went down early Monday following Amazon Web Services’ decision to suspend Parler from its cloud hosting service after Wednesday’s U.S. Capitol riot.
CEO John Matze told “Sunday Morning Futures” that the site will try to “get back online as quickly as possible,” after writing on the platform that the site may be down for up to a week.
APPLE AND GOOGLE SUSPEND PARLER FROM THEIR APP STORES
Google suspended Parler from its app store Friday due to a failure to moderate “egregious content” posted by users related to the violent siege on Capitol Hill last week.
The sinister purge of the right continues as Parler is shutdown. So it seems you’re only free to speak your mind if you’re a left wing liberal. That doesn’t seem like SOCIAL media to me? 🤷 Orwellian pic.twitter.com/NhMlWaGpKW

If it can happen to Parler it can happen to any business.

NBC News covered the story also:
Social media site Parler has gone offline after Amazon suspended it from its server hosting service Sunday over violent and threatening content.
Google Play and Apple both decided to remove the platform from its app stores over the weekend.
Supporters of President Donald Trump used Parler, the “Twitter for conservatives,” to express hatred and threaten violence that culminated in Wednesday’s riots at the U.S. Capitol, the tech giants said.
Users attempting to access Parler.com Monday morning were greeted with the browser message: “parler.com’s server IP address could not be found.”
Hopefully, Parler will be able to find even better servers.
In the meantime, many users have temporarily have turned to Gab, MeWe, and CloutHub.
