Big Tech giant Twitter, meanwhile, has permanently banned President Trump, leaving his 88 million-plus followers looking for another way to stay in touch with the President and his famous — and often controversial —posts. Those posts ironically drove lots of traffic to the social media giant which watched $5 billion in market value disappear overnight after it gave the outgoing commander in chief the heave-ho.
Responding to the actions of Big Tech, Parler CEO John Matze says the social media site was thoroughly and effectively canceled in a coordinated effort.
“It’s not just these three companies,” he told Fox News, the news network that is familiar with being loathed by the Left that wants it gone. “Every vendor, from text message services to email providers to our lawyers, all ditched us, too, on the same day.”
Amazon claimed Parler and its invitation to “speak freely and express yourself openly” created an online environment of threats and violent content that violated Amazon’s terms of service when those posts were not removed and punished. Google made the same claim, and the Big Tech titans are linking Parler’s online environment with last week’s mob attack on the U.S. Capitol building.
It might also be a coincidence that conservatives have been flocking to Parler after Election Day, especially after they are punished by Twitter’s censors, and both the Right and the Left recognize Parler has become the new social media favorite for conservatives.
Prager U: We warned you
One group that is no stranger to left-wing Big Tech and its anti-conservative punishment is Prager University, the conservative-leaning website. Founded by columnist Dennis Prager, the website competes against left-wing professors to educate young generations about politics, culture, and religion.
The biggest draw of Prager U is its five-minute mini-presentations, also aimed at young adults, that feature names such as Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali with topics such as feminism’s effect on the culture, socialism’s violent history, and the future of Islam.
Craig Strazzeri, chief marketing officer for Prager University, told the “Washington Watch” program that Prager U has fought Big Tech since 2016, when its videos were restricted and censored over their displeasing content.
Almost a year ago, Prager U lost its federal lawsuit against Google and You Tube in a 3-0 appeals court decision. Responding to Prager U’s complaint that YouTube promotes itself as a free speech platform where “everyone deserves a voice,” one judge said that is not false advertising but merely the company’s opinion about itself.
According to Strazzeri, conservatives did not take the free speech issue seriously as Prager U waged war against the powerful Big Tech titans.
“And here we are in 2021,” he concluded. “And we’ve reached kind of this peak of now people are starting to realize where this is all going. And it’s gone from troubling to downright scary, and people’s speech is no longer free as it’s always been in America.”
Dan Gainor of MRC Tech Watch tells One News Now the Saturday Night Massacre of Parler reminds him of the “Cultural Revolution” in China.
“They ran around and destroyed statues – sound familiar? – changed names of things, erased history,” he recalls, “because they didn’t like the history.”
Before it was over, he adds, the “pesky people” who got in the way were also erased from the “Cultural Revolution” that was taking place.
Parler fighting back
Claiming an antitrust violation and breach of contract, Parler is now suing Amazon for suspending its app.
Reacting to the Parler’s punishment and now the lawsuit, U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) told Fox Business the coordinated hit on Parler deserves to be investigated for anti-trust violations and possibly a RICO statute.
“There should be a racketeering investigation on all the people that coordinated this attack,” he said, “on not only a company, but on all of those like us.”
Nunes said he has three million followers on Parler and there is no longer a way to communicate with them.

Ah, the Gestapo, the Stasi and the communists are on our shores. The United States is fast digging a hole and burying itself.
WITH the FULL help and support, of the commucrats and rinos in charge.
ALL The stockholders, Conservative and Liberal of Amazon, Google, Apple, Twitter and others have just unwittily made a huge contribution to the Democrat party of social mischief in the form of lowered stock values when THE PEOPLE eschew buying the products of companies that limit their freedoms. I seriously doubt the power they now have over the politicians to give them American access to their job stealing products from overseas will compensate for the losses they will see in their now over blown markets values, future fines, legal fees and monopoly advantages they are now about to lose in the election steal. More useful idiots used by socialists to pad their featherbeds of power with feathers plucked from the useful idiot Chicken Little’s on a mission to convince the barnyard animals destined to be eaten on the American Orwellian animal farm that the sky is falling, and our environment is doomed, all the while the sun is still shining on our freedoms, albeit getting cloudier by the day.
Last time I looked, the value of campaign contributions are legally supposed to be reported? Not these invisibles made by corrupt organizations with hidden agendas.
AND those who expect that any law will be changed/made, that eliminates those dark fund donations, are fooling no one but themselves.
The lying liars have now not only stopped their own ears to silence the truth for themselves but also determined to end all expressions of honesty &/or truth.
The most offensive thing to sn honest person is a lie.
The most offensive thing to a liar is the truth.
There is an interesting article about the hypocracy of amazon on Newsbusters. It tells about some of the violent stuff they sell. Don’t let the address stop you from opening it. It is really an okay article and safe.
WOW.. THEY flat out sell, and even SPONSOR 204 items, that flat out call for the death of trump, cops or republicans.. YET cancel Parlor “For promoting hate speech”??
POT meet kettle.
