As conservatives flock to its platform, Parler kicked off Amazon servers and Apple store

Update: Parler responds.

Parler says it won’t bend to Apple demands and is exploring options.

Just The News: Parler’s chief executive said Saturday night that the social media app was suspended from Apple’s store and will be thrown off Amazon’s servers in a standoff over censoring content.

CEO John Matze said Parler would not bend to Apple’s demands for increased surveillance and moderation of content and was exploring “many options.” He said the decision by Amazon could result in a weeklong interruption of it service.

“Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch,” he said.  more

* many hat tips. You know who you are. Thank you.

We are the closest thing to competition Facebook or Twitter has seen in many years. I believe Amazon, Google, Apple worked together to try and ensure they don’t have competition.

They will NOT win! We are the worlds last hope for free speech and free information.

What they are doing is unprecedented, unfounded and absolutely disgusting. Shameful.

This is a battle against all of us. Liberals, conservatives, atheists, Christians, black, white, etc. They want to keep their monopoly over speech. They want us fighting. They don’t want us working together. They don’t want us working with each other, they want us hating one another.

Parley – brings two people with conflicting ideas together. Our mission is free speech, democracy and us the people having the power. The elite don’t want us to be free, they want hate division and power!

For us to win this fight we need everyone back on Parler Tuesday. By Monday at noon we will be fully operational again.

  1. I’ve been lurking on Gab for months, but just joined today. If any of you have noticed, many of the links that I’ve posted recently have come from Gab. Check GAB out.

  2. I forgot to mention that Gab has its own servers, so it isn’t under the censorship thumb of Google or Apple.

  3. Knowing what we all know about Google, why the hell would anyone rely on their products and services for anything?

  4. Per Mark Dice
    “I just realized Gab has an archive of Trump’s last 3,000 tweets because they were mirroring his Twitter feed. @a ndrew Torba is ahead of his time.”

    Trumps page has all of his tweets. A brilliant move by Torba.

  5. Kinda’ over social media.

    Also, I don’t know enough about either platform or company to be super hopeful. Can’t we just wait and see which one works?

    Yes, I’m a puss, the idea of starting all over again on another site sounds draining. Someone go do both sites and report back here.

    I’m getting an imediate error searching for you. But rumor has it, GAB is so busy adding people right now they are having issues. I’ll try later. Find me at Bad_Brad.

  7. Thanks, again, @SNS from an earlier post several days ago:

    “ONCE A GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTED TO THE PRINCIPLE OF SILENCING THE VOICE OF OPPOSITION, IT HAS ONLY ONE WAY TO GO, AND THAT IS DOWN THE PATH OF INCREASINGLY REPRESSIVE MEASURES, UNTIL IT BECOMES A SOURCE OF TERROR TO ALL ITS CITIZENS AND CREATES A COUNTRY WHERE EVERYONE LIVES IN FEAR.”

  8. thanks Brad. I’m having problems with it too. 750,000 people joined this week alone and they are adding new servers according to Torba. Maintenance.

    I’ll look you up.

    that’s freaking comedy gold. I just spent about 30 minutes laughing my ass off. DJT is one brilliant SOB.

    MJA, you should post that link.

  10. “Lincoln Project Says It Is Building Database of Trump Officials, Staff: ‘They Will Be Held Accountable’”

    I read this earlier and laughed. Stupid fucks. Now everyone of these assholes are on “the list”. Pink mist the mother fuckers. I’ve had it.

  11. Remember, folks, don’t enter blindly.

    Research (48hrs min).

    Respect your gut feeling.

    Minimize your personal info.

    Stay safe digital and physical.

  12. I said it before but will repeat it tonight: if there is to be a Civil War II, it will start WITHIN the Federal Government.

    You would need to join to do that, right? My aching head. Dude, been there for a year or two. The place is legit.

  14. “Gab is swamped. Be pAtient.”

    Totally irresponsible unless you have proof. You do realize you’re demeaning the last potentially legit avenue of communications for conservatives? So if you have proof post it. If not, shut the fuck up and quit interfering with the revolution. I already know the answer. WTF dude?

  15. Signed up for gab a couple of yrs ago but no one was there. Now they’re so busy I can’t log in.
    Hopefully Parler will invest in their own servers.
    Anyone have suggestions for alternatives to google and applephones?

    Buying an external hard drive to download all my pictures from google photos.

  16. Looks like Gab is the way to go if you want to remain anon, unlike Parler. Copy/pasted from Gab:

    Gab Help & Info
    For those not aware and especially those coming from Parler, there is no app for Gab, but you don’t even need one. The dev team here stripped TENS of THOUSANDS of lines of code out of the Gab front-end last year to make it as lean and mean as possible and run smoothly via a simple mobile web browser. Gab has been designed specifically to run without an app or any dependance on the app store, and is battle hardened to withstand tyrannical deplatforming.

    So I’ll say it again. You don’t need an app, but if you want an “app like experience” you can install Gab as a PWA (progressive web app) on both Apple and Android. Mobile web browser is all you need. For desktop, download and install the Dissenter web browser, and there’s actually an option to install “Gab Social” in a similar manner which runs off of the Dissenter browser back end, and gives you an app-like experience on the desktop also.

    All of this is the exact opposite of all of the Big Tech products that specifically scuttle their mobile web performance to rope you into the app so that they can spy on you, collect all of your data, eavesdrop on your conversations, look at all of your photos, and track your location. APPS ARE EVIL. As for Parler, I could never get their platform to run well even with an app, and forget it with a mobile web browsing experience. They’re going to get completely deplatformed from AWS in the coming days if not weeks, at which point they’ll be finished completely. Gab owns all of their own servers and has stacks of them coming in, and cannot be deplatformed.

    That is all. Welcome aboard

  17. I have been happy with my Samsung phone. My first through my current cellphone have all been with Tracfone. I have never owned a Banana (apple) PC. It is time for patriotic Americans to ditch the commie oligarch bitches.
