Amazon Turns Out the Lights, The Parler’s Over

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home.

    It’s not even a close call who the hero is, right? Free-speech upstart versus corporate titan? I’m thinking John Lithgow and a young Dustin Hoffman type.Report

    Or, Parler could stay on AWS by agreeing to remove violent content, but their whole business plan is to be the gangsta version of Twitter.Report

      Hardly. Parler got in trouble because it refused to police its content. It refused to exercise even a modicum of restraint in a civil society – all the while claiming to be a home for people whose political leanings allegedly have the market on “law and order” cornered.Report
