Andy Jassy is set to be the next C.E.O. of Amazon as Jeff Bezos steps down from that position. Normally I wouldn’t care, but there is a huge problem with this new guy.
You see, it was Andy Jassy who was directly responsible for the takedown of Parler.
Jassy thinks that he somehow has a right to control what you hear and see. Bezos might be stepping down, but Jassy is simply the newest big-tech oligarch with a ‘business as usual’ attitude towards us.
I recently saw a comment from a reader on here suggesting that we as conservatives should start our own online retailer, so that we never have to support Amazon again.
Maybe it is time to start doing that.
At the very least we should stop buying from them altogether.
Take a look:
100 Percent Fed Up had more on the story:
Jassy will become the new CEO of Amazon later this year. The incoming CEO is currently the head of AWS, which banned Parler from the internet last month under the guise of having concern for the public’s safety.
AWS kicked Parler offline earlier this year, claiming that users on the social media platform might “incite violence,” a narrative being used by several, far-left big tech companies to justify taking unprecedented action against President Trump and his supporters.
Parler reacted by filing an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon, alleging that the tech giant kicked the social media platform off its web hosting service, not out of concern for the public safety, but rather due to being “motivated by political animus.”
Breitbart had more details:
While big tech companies and Democrat lawmakers focus on Parler as the sole platform on which pro-Trump protesters organize, FBI affidavits say otherwise.
A criminal complaint filed a few weeks ago revealed that a search warrant was issued on a protester’s Facebook account, as mounting evidence suggests that individuals used Facebook to help organize the Capitol Hill protest.
The DOJ has filed several charges against protesters who were using Facebook to plan their visit to Washington, DC.
Moreover, John Sullivan, the left-wing activist who was arrested and charged in connection to the Capitol Hill riot, had a Twitter account, and still has a YouTube account, which he used to post videos of the siege — videos in which he can be heard encouraging protesters on Capitol Hill.
