Parler SUES Amazon!
This is a textbook antitrust violation and breach of contract is yet another issue.

The libtards will have a stranglehold on the entire country if they silence conservative voices. It's imperative that big tech be held accountable for their attempts to interfere with free speech and access to information!

Parler Being Shutdown Due to Capitol Storming
Shutting down Parler was not the kind of thing that should happen in the USA. What Rogan says about Trump is completely wrong, but he's right that censorship is dangerous. It gets a little crazy when they talk about a coup attempt. They must be hallucinating! There was no coup attempt. It was a truly peaceful protest.... the dang guards let them in! There was no attempt to harm anyone.

We're Not Going To Stop!
There are several alternatives to Facebook and Twitter just in case you're shopping for a better place to post. More evidence that Facebook was used to plan the "insurrection" at the capital and also of ANTIFA's involvement in that little escapade.

Parler back online, will welcome users back 'soon'
This is a good thing, but users can't post yet and so it's only a partial improvement. The BS about private companies mentioned by one of the panelists is just plain stupid. Private companies do not have the right to discriminate against people based on their politics. On top of that when companies conspire to put another company out of business, that is also very illegal.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR US?
Parler's servers will be located in Russia. It's scary when we have to go to Russia to have the freedom of expression. The USA under the democrats is a lot like Germany under Hitler. Hopefully we can stop this trend before it's too late.

Parler Status Updates
Right now all they have on display are a few announcements. The court case against AWS hit a setback, but this is all preliminary stuff and so it may still move forward.
Parler is gratified that the court refused to uncritically accept Amazon’s argument – widely repeated in the media – that the Parler platform was somehow used to plan, coordinate or execute the despicable January 6 riot at the Capitol.

Personally, I would depict the so-called riot as a random skirmish and avoid going along with the narrative that it was a big deal. After all, the significance of the January 6th event is minuscule compared to the actually violent and destructive riots which occurred over the summer. There were literally hundreds of riots, each of which were hundreds of times more serious, and the media downplayed them to the point of absurdity.

Woman fired from job for using Parler speaks out on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight'
How is this not an automatic lawsuit? She was fired for her political activities. Isn't that the very definition of discrimination right there?

recluse: Damn right that lady has been discriminated against. This is total horse manure. I'd say she's got a lawsuit on her hands and that Tucker had her on so that lawyers can contact her and get the legal proceedings started.
